‘2015 JANG KEUN SUK THE CRI SHOW III’ ended finally and successfully at Nippon Budokan, Tokyo held on June 2nd and 3rd.
Impressive stages of ‘THE CRI SHOW III’ filled with JKS’ sensibility that has grown as a musician took place in Osaka, Niigata, Fukuoka, Okayama, Shizuoka, Sapporo, Kobe and Tokyo; 8 cities and 16 stages in total. JKS’ marathon tour ended successfully.
Especially about Budokan performance, where he appeared on the stage as drama ‘Mary me marry’ fan meeting in 2011 and as TEAM H concert in 2013, it was his first solo appearance. That’s why the stage looked so special to him.
After the show, JKS said to fans as follows. ‘From CRI SHOW I to III, 5 years passed. A long journey. I thank my fans and staff who have believed in me and stayed on my side till now. An end means another beginning. Let’t keep going together till CRI SHOW 10!’ His fans responded to him with a rousing cheer. He was warmly welcomed by his staff when he walked down from the final stage and exchanged words of thanks each other. They expressed their love and support for each other.
This tour was very special to fans as the unique staging and set list that expressed JKS’ analog sensibility conveyed warmth to their hearts. That attracted good reviews. For example, “As if we had been seeing a movie throughout the show, the projection and production were beautiful.” “The dynamic band performance colored his singing.” “From beginning to end, we could feel his mature musical world-view harmonized with fans.” and so on.
Especially ‘CRI SHOW’ tour, which started first as ‘2011 JANG KEUN SUK ARENA TOUR THE CRI SHOW IN JAPAN’, is now established as a tour brand with his talent and passion. And the uniqueness draws attention. Today we’d like to analyze the reason why ‘CRI SHOW’ is so special and the secret here.
1. From planning to production and performance. He produced all by himself with passion, love and effort!
Not only as an actor and a singer, Jang Keun Suk has always been trying in a new area of activity. He produced almost all of his performances such as Asia tour, CRI SHOW tour, ZIKZIN tour, ZIKZIN festival. That’s so unusual. In this ‘CRI SHOW III’ full of his sensibility like his previous shows, we could see his efforts at improving projections and stage designs all around. Above all, even he performed in the same set list, he succeeded to create a totally different show. Many said such his strength must have been gained through a lot of experience he had in previous performances.
2. Not just a concert. It’s like a drama making together with JKS and fans!
JKS’ concerts are not just to give fans various highlights to have fun. Rather, it’s noticeable that he puts ‘mutual understanding’ (communicating each other and breathing together) as the most important thing. He often enjoys conversation with fans to make a deep bond during the shows. Many say they can feel comfort and intimacy to the fullest through his shows. Like this, enhancing the bond between fans who continuously attend his show is a secret of him who keeps leading Korean wave.
3. Jang Keun Suk’s potential is critical. His unique way of living is promising!
‘CRI SHOW’ is derived from a coined word using ‘critical’ made by JKS. As the name of his official fan club is ‘Cri J’, the word ‘Cri’ means a lot to him. His critical charm and potential promise to bring him more success in the future. Like this, JKS who keeps having a big influence on Korean wave market is the center of attention how he does and will do next as a pioneer of new performance culture.
After the CRI SHOW III, we heard a lot of positive feedback from fans. “It was a great show that united Keun-chan and eels! I hope it continues to CRI SHOW 20 as well as CRI SHOW 10!” “Projection and lighting covered the whole venue. That impressed me a great deal.” “As he commented in the end of the show, I won’t forget today’s experience forever! An end means another beginning… I will keep this his words in mind. Let’s keep ZikZin together!” The fever doesn’t seem to go down after the show.
Jang Keun Suk matured again through ‘CRI SHOW III’. What kind of future to be waited for him with his insatiable ZIKZIN energy? We can’t wait to be the witness.Share on Facebook
