Multi-talented Jang Keun Suk, who is active as actor and singer and very popular in Japan, held an early Xmas party “2020 JANG KEUN SUK Xmas Online Fan Meeting ~always with U~” for Japanese fans on December 19th. The online event drew many people’s attention. During the event, #グンちゃんのクリスマスパーティ [Geun-chan’s Xmas party] was trending on Twitter.
This event was planned for Japanese fans. Even it was webcast from South Korea, everything was conducted in Japanese.
And the concept of the event was Xmas party with fans. In the first segment ‘Yasik time’, Jang Keun Suk introduced his original but simple party menu. The cooking ingredients were announced beforehand in the invitation card shared by his official LINE (SNS), and his fans joining the online event could cook and eat together through watching the webcast recipe. Many fans uploaded the evidence photos to SNS after cooking them. In the following segment ‘Show time’, we looked back on his past concerts, watching happening scenes edited by JKS himself, and popular scenes selected by his fans.
In ‘Daily Life’ segment, the exclusive video filmed for this event, following JKS when he was off, was introduced to the viewers. He showed us his new house he moved to this year, and how he spends his me time in a private studio. Witnessing his unknown daily life entertained us so much. In ‘Gym Time’ segment, he showed us how he is doing sit-ups at home while he can’t go to the gym because of COVID-19, and tried how many sit-ups he can. He also played a miniature golf for Xmas presents to his fans. In short, if he fails the game, his rare item will be given to fans. On the other hand, if he wins, his junk item will be given to them. He said that he failed a lot in a rehearsal, but he did his best performance on a real stage. Unexpectedly, he won twice in a row, which made him so happy. However, he was generous to give his rare items such as his favorite sweat suits and name plate used during MS to the viewers!
In the following ‘Keun night’ segment, he introduced his fans’ Xmas memories collected through Japan official fan club as if he were radio DJ. Reading those episodes, he also shared his Xmas memories to us.
In the final segment, he read his heartfelt handwritten Japanese letter to fans. He revealed his honest feelings to fans whom he can’t see in person right now, which touched our viewers hearts. At last, he sang two songs, ‘Guardian star’ and ‘Go back sweet home’, both suitable for Xmas atmosphere. Those songs are very popular among fans, and his selection was supported by SNS. The event ended successfully in a warm atmosphere.
After the main party, there was an exclusive ‘after party’ segment for Japan fan club members. They had a special time to celebrate his Japan official fan club 10th anniversary. Even though he was back from MS, they were not able to meet directly for a long time. However, even though it was held online, the fan meeting spending together must have been a great Xmas present for both his fans and Jang Keun Suk himself.
