Actor Jang Keun Suk’s schedule is busier than ever before. He has a tight shedule and goes back and forth between Korea and Japan, and between being a singer and an actor.

Jang Keun Suk promotes Olympics both at home and abroad as 2018 Pyoengchang Winter Olympics and Paralympics honorary ambassador, and at the same time he has a lot to do as a Hallyu star as well, so 24 hours is not enough.

First of all, his role as a honorary ambassador for Paralympics is the most important. On the opening day, 9th March he plans to hold a special performance for fans who will participate in the 3days/2nights tour called “Christmas Festival in March”. On the second day of the tour, 10th March, he will watch an Olympic game with fans. Jang Keun Suk has bought them the tickets himself.

Before this he is holding concerts in Japan as a Hallyu star. Last month in Osaka on 17th and 18th, he completed additional performaces of his “Cri Show IV” tour that started last October, and he is holding finale performances in Tokyo from 9th to 11st February. During this time his schedule has been tight, he has traveled back and forth between Korea and Japan, and even took a part in the Winter Olymics Torch Relay.

Starting from March he will stand in front of the public as actor as well. He will be a main character in the SBS Wednesday/Thursday drama “Switch – Change the World” that is sheduled for broadcasting on 14th March. This will be his first TV drama appearance since SBS sageuk “Jackpot” ended in June 2 years ago.

Although the time between his last and the new work hasn’t been very long, this drama is highly anticipated as it’s expected he will show a new transformation. Jang Keun Suk takes the role as a swindler who didn’t become a prosecutor even though he was clever enough to pass the bar exam.

It’s expected that viewers will enjoy watching a swindler who looks like a prosecuter in action for the sake of justice more than watching a prosecutor. It attracts attention more than anything else that he will play a double role for the first time.

Jang Keun Suk’s representative said: “While he is doing his activities as Pyoengchang Winter Olympics and Paralympics honorary ambassador, he is also preparing for his transformation as actor. The schedule for February and March is tight, but it’s well coordinated, it’s planned so that not a single thing will be neglected.”
