[Notice] Change of server & possible down-time

Dear friends,

As always, the bad news come with the good.

Bad News

My blog has to move to another server again, barely 2 months after my last move. Necessary because I’m uploading too many pics = = and am about to run out of space on this server, and another server in Singapore is offering much more space.

As a result of some domain DNS change needing about 2 days to fully take effect, what this means to you is that when you try to access my blog in the next 2 days, you may be directed to my old server, where there will be NO other updates after this notice.

If you see current updates, that means you have come to the new server. 🙂

I hope everything will be settled by Friday 15 April, because that’s when I will try to upload my recording of JKS attending the 15th Global Chinese Music Awards.

* NOTE: My blog address is still the same:
http://jangkeunsukforever.com/

Good news

Er, that’s hopefully my blog doesn’t have to move again and I will have lots of server space to upload beautiful pics! ^^

Thanks,
Aphrael77

[News] JKS signing record contract with Chinese company?

I cannot pinpoint the exact source of the news, but Sukbar and Sina are circulating news that in addition to the agency contract that Jang Keun Suk will sign with HS Media on Saturday 16 April, he will also sign a music album contract with one of the biggest and reputed record companies in China, Typhoon Group. This news has the Chinese eels in ecstacy, as they look forward to JKS’ Chinese music album and the prospect of his further career development in China.

Some very brief background news about Typhoon Group: It’s buying over the shares of all EMI record companies in the greater China region. All the artistes under EMI will be transferred to Typhoon Group, including Jolin Tsai, A-mei, Elva Hsiao and Show Luo. All album releases outside of China will still be executed by EMI. In an environment where many Chinese music record companies are bringing in foreign capital, this is the first time that a Chinese company has bought over an international company.

Typhoon Group plans to branch out into music, movies, drama and other areas of the entertainment industry, and will continue to collaborate with artistes who have the potential.

13 April 2011 – On 12 April afternoon at basement 1 of Samsung Electronics Centre, in order to celebrate the opening of super-big IT and mobile phone retail outlet D’light Shop, actor Jang Keun Suk had an autograph session and even became a manager for a day.

[“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.
