[My Thoughts] JKS Travel Bug Bites – Part 1

13
Celebrities really have the power to stimulate the economy i.e. get people to spend more money. Just look at Jang Keun Suk for example. His popular dramas and movies must have sold lots of CDs and DVDs overseas notwithstanding online proliferancy, not to mention all the “You Are Beautiful” accessories (stickers, earrings, keychain, pig rabbit stuffed toys etc). Then he embarked on his Asia Tour 2010. Not only were all his fan-meeting tickets sold out usually within the first day of ticket purchase (and they don’t come cheap), fans trailed him from country to country, spending on airfare, hotel etc.

On the rising tide of JKS’ popularity comes more commercial offers. Ever since his commercial debut at the age of 5, JKS has been fortunate, with commercial endorsements pouring in almost every year. Just this year alone, he has been to China and Thailand to shoot advertisements.

Then the guy decides to cut a music album

Samsung Galaxy Player CFs

Airtime for Jang Keun Suk in Korea with these latest commercials.
I can only say, when he appears in the middle of CF Ep 1, I was … screaming happily!
Mm… do you think two of Kang Mu-Gyul’s bandmates being in this CF is due to JKS, or just a coincidence? 🙂

CF Ep 2 is more of a red herring ….

So if you are ordering online, please exercise your usual sense and caution. I am merely posting the news and am in no way responsible should there be problems with your online order.

[23 Mar 2011] Release of JKS new album!!!

17
Source website

Most fantastic news ever!!
Jang Keun Suk is releasing his first solo music album on 23 March 2011 in Japan!!
Do I hear screams all across the globe? (Arrrrgh….!)

The album, to be released by Pony Canyon Japan, has 2 editions – the limited edition includes a DVD and the other does not. Now, I can’t read Japanese, but it seems like there will be 3 new songs in this album. And the music producer is the one who produced “My Bus” in “Marry me Mary” OST. They are in the midst of selecting songs, and recording will begin in early February.

On 27 March 2011, JKS will appear at his showcase at Tokyo Big Sight, where attendance is expected to be around 20,000 people.

For now, it seems that the album will be released in Japan first (or only?). I must get hold of the album by hook or by crook!

Very creative work done by fellow eel, sorrowsdotear, who made this M3 cat out of snow.
This post is evidence that I’m really bored out of my mind, with no news of Jang Keun Suk except that he has returned to Korea today. What do eels do without news of Jang Keun Suk?
mmm …. we look for cats to play with? XD

[18 Jan 2011] JKS in Japan 张根硕日本拍摄 PV

25
On 18 Jan at 18:55 hours, Jang Keun Suk arrived at Japan Haneda airport.
News has it that he’ll be taking part in the filming of a Japanese singer’s promotion video, but it is not confirmed yet whether JKS is collaborating with Every Little Thing (ELT) or with Globe band led by reputed song producer Tetsuya Komuro, who at the peak of his career in the 1990s propelled many singers to fame, including Namie Amuro, but was later embroiled in a lawsuit.

1月18日下午6﹕55分﹐張根碩抵達日本羽田機場。
據說此行是為了參與某位歌手的 MV 拍攝﹐只是還不確定是小事樂團 (ELT) 或者是
小室樂隊。小室樂隊創辦人小室哲哉在90年代事業巔鋒期時捧紅很多歌手及歌曲﹐
包括安室奈美惠﹐不過後來捲入了官司。
