These fragments of news come from a Japanese magazine ≪女性セブン≫ translated by miyuki_jks.

Part 1

JKS jokes, “if fans are searching for a ‘herbivorous man, carnivorous man’, then I am herbivorous by day and carnivorous by night. And in response to the trendy topic of plastic surgery in Korean showbiz, JKS answers the question in a humorous manner, “Looking at myself in the past feels like looking at my own brother.”

[Aphrael77: “herbivorous” seems to refer to more gentle or homely characteristics while “carnivorous” refers to more predator-like, aggressive characteristics]

Part 2

JKS was born in Seoul on 4 August 1987 and due to his grandfather’s career reaching its peak, the whole family moved to Danyang for the expansion of his grandfather’s business, until JKS was in grade 5 in primary school. In order to understand more about JKS, the reporter went to Danyang to research for information. Neighbours say of JKS, “His round and chubby face in the past was very cute. He liked to use an adorably beseeching tone, and was well-liked by adults.”

Part 3

At that time, his grandfather was in charge of fish farm management and grandmother in charge of preparing meals in the kitchen. JKS’ mother would help his grandmother prepare meals when she had the time. The task of feeding the fish bait was given to JKS.

“I wanna get married sooner than next week…”

It was our exclusive!!!

We went to Korea to see JKS, who has become a craze after “You are Beautiful(YAB)” broadcasted in Japan. In YAB he played a charismatic vocalist of a very popular pop group. And also in his latest featured drama “Marry me Mary (M3)”,which is now broadcasting in Japan, he played a musician.

“I wish I could live like Mu-gyul. He isn’t influenced by money. He lives freely by music alone,” JKS told us the reason why he decided to play the role, Mu-gyul, a vocalist of an indie band.

M3 is a romantic comedy drama, beginning with a fake marriage between Mae-Ri and Mu-gyul to escape from an arranged marriage. In M3, Mae-Ri describes Mu-gyul as a

* It was already late into the night when Jang Keun Suk accepted Easy’s interview, but he did not show any sign of exhaustion despite a full day of gruelling schedule. He was equally lively when it came to talking. Easy is very touched and grateful to JKS for speaking so much in his response to questions, and the little amusing incidents that happened during the interview also swept away the exhaustion of waiting and made the interview a happy one.

01

Venturing out of Korea and having achieved much success in Japan, Jang Keun Suk is apparently not contented with his excellent results. This talented young man has set his sight on the much broader China region. The contract-signing ceremony in Shanghai on 16 April is still a fresh memory, and JKS’ grand journey is just starting.

Having shot to popularity last year based on Korean drama “You are Beautiful” (YAB), Jang Keun Suk came to Hong Kong last Thursday for his “Jang Keun Suk 2011 The Cri Show in Hong Kong” and stood on stage as a singer. Last year, JKS had expressed dissatisfaction with the Hong Kong media for pursuing him in his private life. In our interview, JKS talks about his feelings and love story; also on this trip, JKS has also filmed a video clip at the hotel’s swimming pool.

JKS was not a singer but had been invited many times to sing soundtrack for his dramas due to his singing prowess, and his good singing voice has long been acknowledged. Determined to make acting his focus, JKS only released his first Japanese EP “Let me cry” in April this year after many years in showbiz. The hit song then proceeded to top Japan’s Oricon charts with sales surpassing 100,000.

“Having been in showbiz for so many years, all along I did consider releasing an album, but

I missed out about a minute at the beginning about the emcee talking about his trip to Korea and his impression of Jang Keun Suk.
And I thought I heard the emcee say that they will be airing more news about “Marry me Mary” often (or did he say something like the interview will be shown in parts almost every day?? I wouldn’t have time to rush home every day to record!)

[“Cut” Interview] Pretty boy’s BDC view of life

Aphrael77’s note:

I didn’t save pics of Japanese “Cut” magazine, so these pics are from Zegda and totally not related to the article at all ^^. Chinese website Sohu Entertainment translated the “Cut” interview.

As much as we all adore JKS’ pics, I love his interviews equally too. Provided the interviewer doesn’t ask questions that we’ve all heard before, interviews provide an insight to Jang Keun Suk. The more I know about JKS, the more I admire and love him. He is the most dedicated and professional actor I’ve come across, and always so passionate and responsible for the things that he does. 🙂

Sohu Entertainment – Korean star Jang Keun Suk’s debut “Let me cry” album, originally slated for release on 23 March, has been postponed as a result of the massive Eastern Japan earthquake, and now the release date is confirmed on 27 April. Television dramas such as “You are Beautiful” and “Marry me Mary” have made this actor the best loved Korean star in Japan. His official music album debut has been much anticipated, and fans are not unfamiliar with JKS’ voice as he has sung drama soundtracks at fan meetings and on television. His musical talent demonstrated in Lounge H collaboration with good friend Big Brother also amazed fans. Upon the first hearing of “Let me cry”, many Japanese reporters who are not familiar with JKS are greatly surprised by the explosive power of his voice, and comment that JKS is frankly a rock singer and has performed his debut song effectively. Recently, JKS accepted the interview of reputed Japanese magazine “Cut”. Facing the reporter who has a reputation for asking challengingly tricky and sophisticated questions, JKS was open and talked freely about his experiences thus far, and answered questions like why he chose to launch his singing career in Japan.

JKS’ White Valentine’s Day

Question: What habit do you have before bedtime?

Before I sleep, I will think about what I’m going to do the next day, maybe it’s work, maybe it’s only a friends’ gathering. To think about what may happen the next day, I feel, makes things run more smoothly.

JKS’ White Valentine’s Day

Question: Do you have any weird habit that no one else knows?

In the past, I used to switch on the television immediately after I got out of bed in the morning. It’s not because I wanted to watch television, it’s because if I don’t turn on the television, I would not get out of bed… Switching on the television gave me a feeling of not wanting to lose out to society.

Question: As a pretty boy, please share with us what is your definition of a real man?
