To set your minds at rest about JKS’ popularity in Korea, I’d like to share information from a Korean eel. It is not true that JKS is not popular in Korea.
Maybe he is not as popular internationally as certain Korean pop groups, but JKS does have some popularity in his home country. An unpopular actor will not receive so many scripts and invites to act as male lead in dramas.
It is just that some groups of people target JKS and spread rumours about his lack of popularity in his home country. The mass media also subscribes to such “commonly held” perceptions and as they need news to report on, they reinforce the perception and the situation gets exaggerated.
The fact is, as an actor in Korea, JKS has one of the biggest fandoms.
Thanks to Korean eels for their strong support~!
So don’t worry too much~!
