A Korean actor and singer, Jang Keun Suk (28), who has changed his record company from PONYCANYO to UNIVERSAL MUSIC, is going to release a new single ‘Darling Darling / Dry Kiss’ on August 10th for the first time in 5 years.
Different from his previous rock tunes, the new song is sweet pop music and he tried his first dancing as a solo singer. When he was filming the MV in the suburbs of Seoul, we ‘Daily Sports’ did his exclusive interview. Jang Keun Suk told us “I tried to express images my fans have toward me. My chapter 2 will begin with this song”. For his fans, for his goal to conquer the world as World Prince, Geun-chan will transform himself to grown-up Keun Suk.
The first single after the transfer of his record company, ‘Darling Darling’ is a bouncy tune with sweet lyrics such as “That’s unfair that you stroke my head gently” “I want to be around you longer”. He even shows a relaxing dance with dancers in the MV. The impression we get from is totally different from his previous hard-rock guitar sounds.
“The previous songs were my favorite style of music. I did what I want to do so far, but I chose a lovely song this time, considering my fans’ request to correspond with my images they have toward me.” It may sound he compromises, but he calls it ‘responsibility’. “I will be more mature before my 30s.” Not being self-satisfied, he’s trying to think a great deal of viewpoint of his fans.
Especially about the responsibility he has come to feel as he’s getting older, a Japanese singer, Fukuyama Masaharu (47) inspired him a lot. When he went to see Fukuyama’s concert held at Nissan stadium last August, he was amazed by Fukuyama. “Although he’s over 40 years old, I found that he was well-prepared with nervousness and concentration.” Such Fukuyama’s professionalism who is also wearing two hats as a singer and an actor made JKS to swear “I will be definitely more mature when I turn 40.”
In 2011, JKS made his debut as a singer in Japan. In November of the same year, he held a concert at Tokyo dome. As in the example, his popularity exploded. However, because of strained relations between South Korea and Japan, his appearance in Japanese media has been decreased since then. Still, JKS believes that cultural power is stronger than politics. And he decided to transfer to a new record company that makes him possible to develop his field globally to start his new chapter.
With the new single, JKS is going to hold concerts at Yoyogi 1st Gymnasium, Tokyo on July 5 and 6, and at Osaka-Jo Hall on July 19 and 20, and show his new performance to fans. “My darling eels, I always miss you. Can I love you more? When I ask so, you’ll answer me ‘Why not?’ Right?” He will speak to fans in a do-S way then.Share on Facebook
