Jackie Chan Changing Career And Forming A K-Pop Band

Jackie Chan is going to form and manage a boy band. The actor is going to change the course of his career to music and recruit, train and produce a K-Pop quintet called JJCC.


The famous Chinese action movie star, Jackie Chan is going to form and manage a boy band. The actor is going to change the course of his career to music and recruit, train and produce a K-Pop quintet called JJCC.

The state newswire Xinhua say the actor is a fan of the genre: “Jackie Chan has always been overflowing with good words about K-Pop – after he saw K-Pop’s unlimited potential and possibility for development, he spent several years grooming JJCC,” reported Xinhua, which added that “their appearance is very handsome, and they’ve received individual training on their personality and stunts.”

The name of the band “JJCC” is intentionally doubled acronym of the phrase “joining cultures”.

As formed and trained under the ambitious theme, ‘The world can be conquered when Asia unites,’ JJCC will amaze the world with their different music and a charm that has never existed before,Sha-sha Lee, CEO of the Jackie Chan Group South Korea, told Korean journalists.

The Rush Hour star is personally managing the band and has helped plan the concept, scouted the members, and played a role in completing their debut album. Besides one Australian-Chinese singer, the rest of JJCC are Korean, and all were described as “triple threats” (though “quadruple” would be more accurate) who can sing, dance, rap and act.

Chan is know as an actor and this will be his first step into the international pop scene. The 59-year-old has a long history with the Chinese music industry. Having studied at the Peking Opera School, he began releasing Canto-pop and Mando-pop songs in 1984; since then has issued more than 25 albums, including many of his own soundtracks.

JJCC’s as-yet unnamed full-length will be released on 24 May, first in South Korea and then in China.
