Jang Keun Suk, the MC and National Producer Representative on Mnet Produce 101 aired on Jan 22. He will convey the message as the National Producer Rep, representing the audience to assign tasks for the trainees and announce the voting results.
He appeared in a refreshing manner. Jang Keun Suk in a clean cut suit, appeared with various portraits that represented his 25 years of artist’s life. His rich expressions through the mime act attracted the attention of all audience.
Jang Keun Suk is the only guy in this show. All the 101 trainees as well as their instructors are all ladies. Yet, in the midst of so many ladies, Jang Keun Suk has strongly established his presence.
When Jang Keun Suk appeared, all the trainees could not contain their astonishment. Bearing a bright smile, Jang Keun Suk asked “who am I?”, the trainees responded “Jang Keun Suk!”. To which Jang Keun Suk responded “is Asia Prince”, allowing the trainees to see the very candid side of him.
Jang Keun Suk not only showed his good looks liken a noble master, through his deep gentle voice, he was able to create a tense atmosphere as an MC. In that moment, he totally portrayed his MC ability which can normally be seen only in his Fan Meeting and Concerts.
Although Jang Keun Suk has had many Fan Meetings and Concerts overseas, he is still an actor. Through Produce 101, he clearly proved why his presence is necessary.
When facing the trainees, he is sometimes like a nice brother, yet other times like a strict senior, this is the new look of “Asia Prince” Jang Keun Suk. Competent in both acting and stage performance, this is his advantage as an MC.
There are many who debut as an actor and are MC in variety shows. Park Joong-hoon, Kim Seung-woo etc has talk shows in their names, Kim Joo-hyuk being the active leader of variety show “2 Days & 1 Night”.
Jang Keun Suk with the aura and charm of an actor, created a great impact on Produce 101. Not only as the only guy in the show, but also as the leader driving this show, we look forward to his future performance.
