I’m so so happy as if I’m one of their members who joined this great project for JKS birthday gift. I’ve seen many gift projects before, but surely this is one of the best. I asked Eva who is one of our ECI members and led this great project as one of the admins of EuropEels to write something for us. Here you are! Thanks again Eva for sharing the detail explanation. 🙂

Yesterday I was at work when this miraculous thing happened. One of the eel who joined our project sent me a message and the pic below. It was from june.shin1 Instagram. (He’s one of JKS friends. See the pic with him and JKS at the bottom of this page.)
When I saw the tent in this pic, I was almost cry for joy! But I couldn’t cry in front of costumers! But Now… ok, I can cry! XD Why this pic made me so blissful? The tent was exactly a birthday gift for Jang Keun Suk from EuropEels! Let me share the behind story with you.
EuropEels started to search for unit just at the begining of this year. I saw what JKS fan base could do for him, but our Italian one was too weak, so I searched admins from European fan page and blog… I found some of them, and even the one for European eels, but that was not so active then, so we decided to open ‘Jang Keun Suk Europe FC’ Facebook for European eels again. We talked a lot between our admins (they’re from Italy, Czech Republic, France, Spain, Greece, from Poland, and Romania). We chose some possible lists of ideas for his birthday gift. We asked to eels in our national fan page to chose what they like more. We didn’t use English there, to avoid the spoiler and keep it as a surprise.
Then we counted votes. The first idea was way too expensive for us. We tried to realize it, but it was too much for the new born European group. So, we used the second idea with more votes: the camping tent.
Can you believe it? I saw this kind of thing months ago, and I told my Italian eels about this crazy idea of mine to gift him that tent… but it was too expensive for us only. so you can understand how happy I was that my first idea was adopted as the first European project. And now, even more happy 😀 !!!!
Well, I contacted a web shop director of the fieldcandy that helped our project. I explained him our intention and asked him if it could arrive on time for his birthday and if he could write the birthday card with the words we chose. John (the director) has been really really nice and kind, he checked personally the order and give to it priority 😀
This is our message in the gift card:
“Best wishes of a happy birthday to Jang Keun Suk, who knows how to make our days better.
We just wanna say THANK YOU with all our hearts..Thank you for all the emotions that you give us, thank you for everything!
European Eels will always be by your side, Zikzin!”

The shop is in England, and they provide free shipping with FedEx. So luckily they sent it directly to Tree-J.
