The Jang Keun Suk in my eyes
- written after Cri Show 2012.8.11 in Shanghai
11 August 2012. 7.30pm. Jang Keun Suk Cri Show II at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Thankfully for Tong Yi Orange Juice Enterprise, which has the exclusive privilege of sponsoring the Cri Show II, I have a chance to be able to attend the concert as one of the staff. It was very honorable to be able to experience Jang Keun Suk’s amazing charm.
Prior to endorsing Tong Yi Orange Juice, I have no knowledge of Jang Keun Suk’s news. Eventually, I came to understand his sincerity, cuteness, frankness, outgoing and confidence personality. Today in the concert, I see a Jang Keun Suk who is positive, hardworking, full of character and fought his way up, step by step, ambitiously.
1. Knowing Jang Keun Suk
1. Advertisement shoots – He is a cheeky boy.
Although I am not so lucky to be able to work with Jang Keun Suk and Park Min Young for the advertisement shoots, many other staff involved shared their experiences. Let me summarise as such:
He is a very amiable artist who does not have the usual “artiste’s airs”. During the shooting, he was very professional. He did not get into a fit even if it required him to work overtime till late night due to unforeseen circumstances. In fact, he insisted in completing the shots to perfection. His cheekiness and frankness filled the air and everyone around him felt comfortable and happy. He is such a big boy. From the photographs taken, he was rich in his expressions. In fact, I had overheard the manager “sigh” while he was selecting the photographs for the event. Jang Keun Suk was too expressive. He did not know exactly which one to choose as all of them were filled with his rich expression. On the contrary, Park Min Young’s demureness might seem to be a little reserved (Well, she did many cute shots too!). And because of these differences, Jang Keun Suk’s expression seems “exaggerated”, especially placing him beside Park Min Young. Thank goodness for the quantity of photographs taken, there were enough prints to be used.
2. Tong Yi Press Conference – His powerful hugs
Jang Keun Suk and Park Min Young were present at the press conference in Beijing for their endorsement of the product as well as the official listing. We arranged and organised some fans who were able to interact with the two artistes on stage.
Two very lucky fans were selected by Jang Keun Suk and Park Min Young respectively. In this segment, they were invited to the stage to be with their idols in close proximity. The two fans shed tears of excitement when this unexpected lady luck befell upon them.
In the next segment, there were two very special fans – a 53 years old Aunty and a 12 years old, youngest fan (This 12 years old fans burned midnight oil to write a very long, touching letter expressing her love for Park Min Young. She begged us not to disqualify her eligibility to join in the contest because of her age. The letter touched us tremendously and she participated the event with a guardian). The presence of the two fans showed the level of popularity of Jang Keun Suk and Park Min Young.
“您好”! (Hi!) Jang Keun Suk greeted the two fans in his newly acquired Mandarin and he gave them a tight hug. You can tell his sincerity and passion as he hugged them with strength. Throughout the interactions, the two artistes were humble. The audiences who went to the event were immersed in the constant laughter and sincere greetings of the two artistes. Comparing the two, Park Min Young appeared to be more reserved. She was relatively more polite in giving the hugs to the fans comparing to Jang Keun Suk’s warm hugs. At the end of the event, they took photographs together and our prince was very cooperative too.
