SNSD’s Yoona: There is A Lot I Can Learn from Jang Keun Suk


What’s the reason that only Jang Keun Suk became to the top Hallyu Star?

SNSD’s Yoona told us Jang Keun Suk’s excellent fans managing secret. Both Yoona and Jang Keun Suk are now leading in the drama “Love Rain”. Yoona said that to work with Jang Keun Suk there is a lot she can learn from him.

There are always lots of fans at Love Rain shooting site. Since the leading actors are Hallyu Star Jang Keun Suk and SNSD’s Yoona, so this is reasonable. If you say there is something different compare to other shooting site then that is there are not only Korean fans but also fans from Japan, China etc.. Since both of them are popular stars, so fans are just like influx. Sometimes the fans can cause trouble of shooting. Even when they were shooting in Hokkaido, there were lots of fans. So people really felt the sensation of Jang Keun Suk and Yoona.

During a recent interview, Yoona said: “Jang Keun Suk always nicely says hi to the fans. Sometimes he talked to them, joking with them. He has extraordinary fan service.” When the shooting start, every actor will be in a sensitive state. Even fans are at the shooting site. Most of time they only can watch from distance, maybe only see the top of a few heads, not even mention to meet them. If the shooting schedule is tight, actors have to concentrate on acting, so is hard to think of their fans under that situation. But Jang Keun Suk is an exception; he will say hi to the fans and use his special way to comfort fans that come from faraway. Sometimes he would do shuffle dance to warm up the atmosphere on site.

Yoona said: “When I am waiting for shooting, I will stay in my car and read script, but Jang Keun Suk will take time to chat with fans, to express his thankfulness. He cares for his fans very much. After seeing this, I thought a lot, and I learnt a lot.”

Jang Keun Suk is always being grateful to his fans as they made him to become “Asia Prince”. He never forgets that if there is no fan no “Geunjang” this fact. He is an excellent Hallyu Star.

  1. I think Yoona really kind of opening her eyes by Sukkie. She is not experienced actor, Love Rain maybe is her 3rd acting work? As a member of a singing group SNSD, they were trained in a very closed environment, almost like a boot camp, so she really didn’t have much social contact with fans, especially with fans. All the activities and schedules are planned by agency company. They just run to places to sing and do some shows on TV. Her experience were really different as Sukkie since he started at very young age as an actor and he was really formally graduate from his “social” (real life) college first. So Geunjang really have lots of social experience. But I think most important Yoona found from Sukkie was how sincere he treated his fans. He really put up with them, the fans, the normal people,” the nobodies” compare to super stars. I think the way how Sukkie treats his fans, is actually how Sukkie treats nice people around him. That what we love him about the most is his heart, his kindness, his sincerity.

    • Sarah, agreed.. Sukkie’s fan service is so special even in the autograph session which I enjoy looking at him talking to eels while signing each of the autograph.. and some many stories I heard & seen on YT of his amazing fan services behind the screen.. many eels are like friends to him… Kaori chan told me a beautiful story of him in Hokkaido filming Love Rain.. it is a about a little eel girl… I hope Kaori chan will share the story here too ^_^ I’m so touched hearing the story… Kaori chan told me the sweetest story in the train about her daily greetings with Sukkie and also this touching story of a little girl eel…..I told that to my colleague yesterday…

  2. Sukkie gives fans the feelings of being his friends and playmates (or partners in crime…kekeke) I love JKS beyond fan services. Sukkie does every thing with sincerity and unforced consideration of fans’ feelings and hardship of long awaiting hours just to get a little glimpse of him. I bet those fans didn’t even see his shadow, sometimes. With his little caring acts like saying Hi Cri, chatting with fans or bought fans snacks…etc.. all those things are everlasting memories to fans. EELs are the best fans in the world. They are loyal, they love, they care and most of all they protect Sukkie at all costs.

    I’m not surprise all his leading ladies or co-actors are all respect and admire JKS’ professionalism. Sukkie also has this charm (or magic) of making everyone around at smiling and laughing with happiness……I guess Sukkie’s smiles and laughs are contagious!!!

    • Yes, I totally agree!!

      Prince, Please come to Singapore for your Cri Show 2012.
      All your Singapore fans are waiting for your show this year.
      Don’t disappoint your Singapore fans, Come to Singapore.

  3. i felt so warm and fuzzy reading what Yoona said, but after reading what you all said, you really make me wanna CRY!!!!!
    i love you guys! and i love our Prince!!

  4. i think being friendly and caring is innate with him that’s why its not hard for him to connect with his fans.. He’s really something beyond the fans expectation.. the time and love i gave to him was never wasted.. so proud to be an eel and a fan for the first time.. maybe this gonna be for a lifetime.. JKS stay as you are.. you’re really a beautiful person inside and out..

  5. The BEST fan service award goes to………………….. our Prince Jang Keun Suk!!!! 🙂
    So proud to be his eel!!

  6. I have to say that EELs are the luckiest fans in the world. There are a lot of artistes who treat their fans nice, but i cannot think of anyone who has done the all the things that JKS did and he has not changed the way he treats fans at all. He always treat us very nicely be it chatting to us, saying hi, smiling, buying things etc. he even openly tells us a lot about his feelings.

  7. Honestly, I always feel happy when reading about JKS although I have never had a chance to be at his fan meeting or cri show or any other events. Some usually ask me why I like Jang Keun Suk or why I have become an eel at this time ~~ as this is the first time they’ve found it quite strange ^^ actually I just got to know him since the drama Marry me, Mary and was really impressed by the real Keun Suk while looking for more info about this natural man…the more I watch every move, every expression, every action as well as hear his voice and feel his thoughts, the more I love and respect him…also thanks to eels around the world 😀 I am very excited to know ECI and their talents…despite different answers, I wanna support Keun Suk come what may, to be part of the eels family with loyalty 🙂 sincerity in heart and soul, Keun Suk is No.1 ^^

  8. I dont count this as fan “service”” i label his act as talking to friends. :)) Thats why
    EELS&&SUKKIE forreverrrrr…. *teary* soo happy to become an eel <3 My happiness abiut this cant be explain in words..
