In fact, I was honestly afraid to interview the strange creature who calls himself “Prince of Asia.” On the contrary, the conversation with him was quite fun. He is Jang Keun Suk, a frank and open guy who showed us both his strong and weak points as honestly as possible. His fans describe him as the most lovely and brilliant person. If I add one more to it, I will describe him as the most honest person. Actually he has a good figure, but he is a rare and remarkable young actor who shows us what JKS is plainly, which is quite different from many other actors who show their best side and hide their worst side from others. He shows his true self such as he yawns openly when he finds it boring. I’m happy to share our exciting dialogue with you.Share on Facebook
Actor, Jang Keun Suk completed his first short film. JKS, who is now a senior at the department of Acting, Hanyang University, submitted a short film as his graduation work to meet academic requirements for graduation. Tree-J staff revealed that he had submitted it in spite of a tight schedule. At the previous interview with us, JKS said, “My graduation work was 4:30 minutes long and I acted in a one-man show. Besides, I wrote the script and directed the film.” And he added that it was a kind of sarcastic film. He also revealed that he someday wants to direct films as well as acting and singing.”
JKS has recently been paid attention because he donated 1,200 million won to Hanyang University hoping to settle the scholarship. The “Jang Keun Suk” scholarship starts from March 2012 and can sponsor 20 students at the department of Acting who have excellent results and come from financially disadvantaged background.Share on Facebook

Verbal Jint narrated JKS documentary and proved their friendship again.
According to Brand New Music, Verbal Jint was the narrator of KBS2 documentary “The central role of new Hallyu stars, Jang Keun Suk” and it proved their friendship. Their friendship has developed since JKS revealed that he became a fan of Verbal Jint after listening to his 4th album “go easy” in 2011.
JKS invited him as a guest at his Tokyo Dome performance in November and then JKS made a guest appearance on stage of Verbal Jint in December. In this way they have built intimacy. In the documentary Verbal Jint utilized his unique and attractive voice in narration. It became another present for whom knew their friendship. In spite of long periods of recording, Verbal Jint enjoyed himself and said, “I admire him again as I felt when I was at Tokyo Dome. I’m happy to join this documentary which shows real JKS and his success.”Share on Facebook

The viewer rating of “The special documentary of a new Hallyu star, Jang Keun Suk” was around 10% and it proved a high interest in him.
According to AGB Nielsen Index, the special documentary broadcast by KBS2 on Jan. 1, “The central role of new Hallyu stars, Jang Keun Suk” got a 8% viewer rating throughout Korea. This viewer rating is high if you consider the fact that it was a midnight broadcasting and a documentary for a particular artist. This program reported his great success in Japan, the secret of his popularity, and the real face of JKS. And the filming location of CFs in Japan and China, the recording scene of a duet with a guest of Tokyo Dome were also broadcast. Watching the program, JKS was introduced as a leader who creates new Hallyu showbiz contents and plays a central role of it even though he hasn’t almost any time for rest.
In this program, JKS said, “I don’t think I am successful. I must make more efforts.” He added, “As I’ve gotten older, I feel anxious about uncertainty. I don’t feel at ease if I don’t sweat. Some people said that I made a precocious success, but I don’t think so. If there are ten things what I have to achieve in my life, I haven’t achieved only two or three of them. I sometimes describe myself as a boom, but when I say so, it puts me under hypnosis. I understand that it is possible that my popularity might lose in a moment, so I can’t cut corners on even trivial matters.”Share on Facebook
The documentary was jointly planned by Korean TV station (KBS) and Japanese TV station (Fuji-TV). They collaborated sharing the shooting schedule, but the basic structure of the program is different. So the content is not the same. I wonder what kind of the program eventually comes out. I’m thinking of going to Japan…

UPDATE: I edited my previous English translation and added the Romanization
In response to request from many eels here, I translated the song “守護星(syugo-sei), meaning same as guardian angel (星 means star).” Honestly it was quite difficult for me to understand the real meaning of the lyrics. I think it’s because there were no Japanese song writers though it was written in Japanese. For me, some parts sound unnatural. But I managed to translate them, anyway. I hope you’ll understand the lyrics contained Sukkie’s certain messages to us.
Lyrics: Choi Chul Ho/Seo Hyun il/Lim Kyun Taeck
English translation (interpretation): tenshi_akuma
When I was a kid,
There was my own and only guardian star that I could reach even with my fingertip
Without noticing it, time passed
It may be me that released the hand across the ages
Do you still remember the star that only twinkled for you?
Dear my guardian star…
When I looked up at the sky by chance,
I found twinkle of a star that I had named by myself
It was too bright to stop crying
even if I closed my eyes
Day by day
Only time passes
I haven’t seen it for ages
I thought it was just an empty dream to see it again
Everyone, young and old,
they are raising their hands to look for the sign of the light
in the sky that whispers with a smile forever and ever
This Sukkie is soooooo cute and alike!!!
