The 1st one that is a double A-side single ‘Darling Darling / Kawaita Kiss [Thirsty Kiss]’ will go on sale on July 20th (Wed). And it will be distributed over the world!! (maybe… on the Internet; iTunes?) It is, indeed, 5 years since he last released a single under the name of Jang Keun Suk. With new songs, he’s going to hold ‘JANG KEUN SUK ENDLESS SUMMER 2016’ concerts at Yoyogi 1st Gymnasium (TOKYO) on July 5 and 6, and at Osaka-Jo Hall (OSAKA) on July 19 and 20. Let’s keep on eye on what he shows through music to the world.

tenshi_akuma’s note: As for single CDs, two songs corresponding to A-side and B-side as with old records are contained. But this time both songs can be A-side. So we call it double A-side single. They release 7 types of single editions! In Japan, it’s common that record companies release the same single / album in a different cover design. Not yet the cover photos have been released. It must be hard for eels to decide which to buy… *crying crying for joy.. Later, we’re going to share which website you can order the CD from overseas as always. So please wait for a while.

  1. And I am waiting to see how I can get my hands on all 7 versions – with all different photos

    Wonder if he took the photos/video before or during the filming of Daebak

      • Tenshi………21 21 21 21 21 21 21

        That’s provided he doesn’t increase the number of versions with the 2nd and 3rd single!

  2. hooooooo i better start applying for parttime jobs coz being an eel is really expensive. but ill try my best to get my hands on all of them.
    but in another sence it makes me sad that he myt be soon leaving for 2 yrs may be that is y he is giving us all he has so we dont miss him much.

  3. Oh,this is amazing news!! Thank you so much for the translation, Tenshi! 🙂

    I wonder if something will be different because he has changed the music company. They plan to sell his music all over the world so I hope that the DVD will have english subs. Can´t wait to hear the new songs!

  4. Gosh!!! Driving to the highway…of JKS spending. Or, should we say, investment?! Let’s recalculate and update our budgets, hahaha. But much awaited news since we will get to have and hear new songs from Suk. His transfer to Universal Records, perhaps his means to a much more increased global presence…and towards a concert tour outside Asia, one of his and eels’ goals yet to be realized. Looking forward to having his dvds and listening to his new and fresh songs, with a bonus for english subs hopefully, yes! With all his busy-ness, how could he have found time for producing these songs…our Suk, superman!

  5. Let’s hope he does advance selling at the venue in all of the days of his Endless Summer concerts so all attendees can already get copies before online and store selling starts.

  6. Hi Zoe, I do hope the same,so from now on I’ll buy more of his DVD hopefully with English subs really great news can’t wait to hear his new songs after watching the DvD Live in Japan 2015 He sings just perfect improved a lot really beautiful voice Fighting dear JKS

  7. Thanku so much sis.. 2016 yr is rocking.. Our passionate MAN is going to gift a lot of memories for his eels.. So happy and proud for my suk.. We will wait for u dear even if its too hard.. ZIKZIN

  8. Hi Tenshi can you give me a detail how to purchase ticket to see his concert in Osaka on Jul 19th and 20th both day,really need help thanks

  9. Is it safe to buy tickets from Viagogo sites? I live in Malaysia and wondering if the tickets will arrived too late or not. Very very worried because already buy without thinking. Sigh….
