UPDATE: I added Eng-subbed video (April 29th, 2013)
In Japanese duo Every Little Thing’s (ELT) new album release on 23 Feb 2011, Jang Keun Suk, who has gained much popularity from the Korean drama “You Are Beautiful” (YAB), will appear in the MV of their new song “Star and Moon”.
This is JKS’ first time acting in a MV and the first time displaying his acting skill in a Japanese production. And this wonderful collaboration stems from lead singer Kaori Mochida’s (aged 32) fascination with JKS. Having watched YAB and other JKS dramas, Kaori Mochida was very touched by his acting skills and performance. Hence, at the end of last year, Kaori Mochida travelled personally to Korea to engage in discussions with JKS. Touched by Kaori Mochida’s sincerity and ELT’s music, JKS agreed without hesitation.
Filmed in late January in Tokyo, the MV comprises two separate video clips of a romantic love story, with “Star” depicting a woman’s perspective and “Moon” from the perspective of a man. If one does not watch both videos, one will not be able to gain complete understanding.Share on Facebook

No translation yet, this is just for us to catch a glimpse of Jang Keun Suk at work. The guy simply oozes charm, not to mention he’s fun and spontaneous. At around 01:55 mins, JKS was interrupted in his photo shoot by one staff because he wore, by mistake, the pants meant for the lady model!! He’s so slim that he can fit into it!
还没有中字翻译，这只是让我们过过瘾，先一睹张根硕工作时的风采。不止魅力十足，还很幽默。视频 01：55分时，小帅拍摄被工作人员打断，因为他误穿了女模特儿的裤子！天啊，他好苗条哦，女生的裤子也穿得下！Share on Facebook
It is going to be another bountiful year for Jang Keun Suk, as he reveals his plans for 2011 on his Japanese official website, as below.
1. Album release and Showcase in March
2. “My Pet Lover” (filming in March and airing in summer)
3. Performance tour across Japan
4. Asia Tour (6 countries scheduled)
5. Drama (in midst of decision for 2nd half of 2011)
6. Preparation for JKS Smartphone application
7. 15th Anniversary DVD and photograph book
More heart-stopping (or pocket-burning) news from yesterday – to commemorate 15 years of his acting career, Jang Keun Suk will release a DVD and photograph book. The DVDShare on Facebook
These are what Jang Keun Suk said during his 29 Jan events, and what we hear from people who were there.
1. JKS will be recording his new music album from 31 Jan onwards, and he sang a line from his new song.
2. JKS said that he had wanted to produce an album earlier, but generally Korean music producers tend not to give very good songs to actors, and he had actually been in touch with many music producers before to ask for their help, but it was very difficult until he met the music producer of “Marry me Mary” (M3). JKS felt that he must grab the opportunity to collaborate with this music producer.
[Me: Don’t understand which record company / music producer would want to pass up the chance to collaborate with JKS whose star power almost guarantees good album sales?]Share on Facebook
What an extremely busy blogging night!
Unfortunately, the online broadcast was a complete let-down. The website was totally inaccessible and I only know of one eel who managed to watch it online. Guess I won’t be trying to watch online broadcasts again. The lesson to learn is, it is still better to buy the original FM DVD to support our Keun-Suk oppa 🙂
So here are just some screen captures of the show for consolation.Share on Facebook

For those of us not there in person at Lounge H (LH) today, these pictures are all we are going to see.
Haha, does it make you feel like attending LH, just to experience the electrifying atmosphere our dear Jang Keun Suk whips up? ; p
p.s. any other LH pictures of JKS circulated online will of course be illegal ones (so keep them to yourselves), since JKS himself always expressly asked eels not to take pics of LH.
First, the man appeared at LH with a sexy butterfly tattoo behind his ear, said tattoo being a side product that was on sale at the event.
Then, I laughed like mad at this next titbit of news.Share on Facebook

Ok, I feel guilty about posting this, because other than it’s a Korean commercial shoot for Codes Combine (a fashion clothes line assumably), I know about this as much as Baidusukbar does, which is, nothing much else.
So what all us eels are doing are just admiring his make-up in the picture above 🙂Share on Facebook
Jang Keun Suk’s Zegda commercial has started airing in China. This video should be clearer.Share on Facebook
I must really report two snippets: one shows the usual wit of JKS in answering questions, and as for the other, I really need to spell out what I think of JKS’ friend.
Emcee: Where have you been recently?
JKS: China, Thailand and Japan not too long ago.
Emcee: Who did you go with?
JKS: Definitely not by myself.
Emcee: Don’t tell me you went with your girlfriend?
JKS: Closer to me than girlfriend… …
Now, how does one blog about an online, broadcast showcase that one has not seen? Basically, I don’t care what happened at the showcase (haha) so long as I can feast my eyes on Jang Keun Suk, and boy, was he gorgeous!
The ‘gorgeous’ part might be a bit debatable though, depending on your sense of fashion, because JKS has again managed to stir up a bit of controversy over his dressing. I suppose the point of controversy is his see-through shirt, which adds to the delectable part. My own sense of fashion is deplorable to the extent that I don’t trust my own taste, yet may I venture a small suggestion that perhaps it was that black strip across the chest that makes it look like … a bra? Couldn’t the translucent and black form other patterns i.e. straight horizontal black strips, or a heart shape, diamond shape, whatever shape? Still, overall, I think he still looks great 🙂Share on Facebook
