  1. Yeah,,sis MEG time for you to prepare yourself,Sukkie will come to INDIA,you shld. always keep your eyes & ears wide open,I’m sure u don’t want to miss that opportunity,right sis?

    If I may add,I have this feeling that one reason why Sukkie want to go to India is because of Taj Mahal..He’s very sweet, I can’t help but smile and imagine who will be that special girl in his life**

  2. thank you kaori chan for sharing..simple and short question but have to answer it for 100..wow! our prince answered it patiently and smartly.. ^.^

  3. Thanks for the post. Best place he’s been to is his room & bed! Hahaha, I like that! As usual, he’s so witty and unique in his responses!

    • I like it too! Some answers may appear simple, but some have a deeper level of meaning.

      Q72. To date, of all the places you’ve been to, which place do you like most?
      JKS: My room, my bed.

      Sukkie is well travelled, but in the end, the place he misses most and appreciates most is his home, and his own private space.

      Home = he doesn’t forget his roots and family. And home may not be the most luxurious place, but home is always the best!

  4. Wow!!! Such a good & smart answers, I like ALL & especially wen he mentions India 🙂 Woahhhhhh!!!!!!! Thanks soo much Tenshi !!!!

  5. Really enjoy reading Sukkie’s interview! Thanks to Sarah, Ivy for the translation and Kaori chan for the posting & sharing… really appreciate that! ^_^
    Oh yes… India may be Sukkie’s next vacation venue…our Indian eel sisters.. watch out for him ok!

  6. My prince JKS, so smart & know himself well enough. Do focus on your vocals (strengthen yr lung capacity) especially in yr coming CRI II in Seoul. Keep yr spirit high & you can do it! May the force be with you!!!<*

  7. I changed the answer of Q57 like this.

    Q57. Which part of your body do you like most?
    JKS: Pelvic bone.
    *the Japanese original text said “pubic bone(恥骨)” though.

    But I’m not sure if he really meant to say “pubic bone(恥骨)” or not.
    Is he joking or serious? Only Sukkie knows the truth… can’t sleep to think it over…

  8. he should try act in bollywood movie kkkkkkkk ^^. thanx for translation. Our prince always answer with his unique style, love him more and more <3 <3

  9. Thanks a million to JKSforever Greatest Team, sis Ivy, Sarah and Kaori chan. Your dedication is truly appreciated.

    I always love JKS’ interviews. JKS is so spontaneous, smart and witty man. Though, some questions are past repeated, but in every interviews, there are always somethings to learn from him, not just get to know him more. I like the all the phrases he used in this interview. My favorite is #75, “a person who has firm conviction” because I feel like this phrase truly described JKS, the Asia Prince.

    • I like translating his interviews because it’s such fun~!

      burst out laughing when he wants to time-travel back to fix his voice cracking during his singing. he’s so fixated about that!

  10. he love his family most …the most respect is his mom, the ideal man is his father …SALUTE !!

    who’s the interviewer ? althought he was asked so many questions he said “many thanks to chatting so long with me” it must be fun interview (or he only write fron the question fill? heheehe)

  11. Thanks for the translation! I love his interviews. However long or short his answers are, they are always full of wit and maturity, with a touch of his humor here and there.

    I kinda feel sad about his answer in questions 32 & 76 though. I saw the BTS of that Cri Show and my heart went out to him when I saw that part. I felt how disappointed he was of himself then but I never thought he still harbors that disappointment (regret) until now. It makes me wanna pat him on the back and tell him not to be too hard on himself. He is indeed a perfectionist. I think more than his good looks and outstanding talents, it‘s his personality, character and principles in life that really sets him apart. He is so much grounded to who he is as a person. Hands down!!!

  12. That’ s our Princejks..always so interesting even with short answer..they are sincerely sweet..how not to love our Princejks after understanding his cry for sleep..his sacrifices to show us his best! So lovable and sincere..I wish him all the best in his coming Cri 2 a bigger success! Take care our Princejks 😉

  13. Thanks a million for translating~~ really enjoy reading sukkie interview^^

    I like this part the most :
    Q94. The method to go through a crisis?
    JKS: To face myself.

    Love sukkie’s mature thought, hopefully with this thought in his mind he can overcome any obstacles in his life.. Sukkie fighting!!! We’ll support you xD

  14. About 88 question, it might be difficult to understand his answer. I added my thoughts above. I hope it’ll help you understand it.

  15. Q57. Which part of your body do you like most?
    JKS: Pubic bone. –> (is it hip bone?) . i thought he likes his nose bone the most, because he often touch it.

    Q62. What do most people say about their first impression of you?
    JKS: Unapproachable. –> why? i thought he gave friendly impression to others.

    thank you very much Aphrael, Sarah Ye & Tenshi for sharing these Q&A… all his answers is JKS authentic, cute, yet impressive n wise! No wonder is JKS. ^^

    • Yes, capujette, it is hip bone, though there is some confusion over the technical words! but he means that part near his hip.

      I guess unapproachable because when he does not smile or has no expression on his face, he looks very stern. One of my eel friends saw this side of him in Singapore in 2011, and she said she got “frozen” by his cold expression. but i guess he can’t be smiling all the time for no reason, so it’s not an issue.

  16. Love his answers – witty, sincere and most impressive, highly consistent on matters that are really important.

  17. yeaaaaaaaah…!!!! i’m really glad to know that he wants to travel to INDIA….:))))
    Sukkie am waiting for u…the entertainment industry here is a new horizon that he could explore and am sure he’ll be received well .. but i guess he wants to come as a tourist though..whatever may be the reason i’m glad….( biggest smile on my face in recent times )….

  18. @ivy hahaha I too burst out laughing when he said he wants to time travel back to fix his voice.. Poor boy, the memory is haunting him till now!!

    And his typical JKS answers – too many strong points, no weak points. Gotta give it to him, he’s really good at teasing and has us all in his trap! No wonder he’s JKS heh.

    Indian Eels watch out! You may see him walking by your house one day!!!

  19. As Ivy said, it is always fun to do translation of his interview, he is sure one of kind. That body part thing, OMG. I would have no clue what it means. Lol. Thanks for Sukkie, I learn something new. Really informative. What a fun time we have here.

    He is type A person, so if something bother him is hard for him to let it go, I think that’s why he said he would go back to time to sing again to correct that broken voice. What a boy!

    100 Questions are a lot, but we are so enjoying to read it, so I feel so fast when the last one is done, I was like, is that 100 questions already, didn’t feel like that.

  20. 91……..see tonigh,,,,,,,small thing can make him happy,eat the food he cook with someone he like…..!!!!???in this scene real keunsuk play is not so jun,,,,,kkkk

  21. gee..just read this! thanks so much, kaori-chan for the translation!!

    aah..the interview was very straightforward and yet genuine. 😀 glad to know that he’s still the same person but with deeper appreciation in work and life.^.^

    i was laughing at the pubic bone..i thought ‘what the?..what part is that?”.

    arigato gozaimasu 😀

  22. Always love suk’s interview! Never get bored of it!
    Thanks a bunch our Three Musketeers – Aphrael,Sarah,Tenshi – !!

  23. Thanks for the translation! Sukkie is such an intelligent person. His answers are so witty and direct, One of the many aspects that I admired in him is how he loves and respects his parents. He is always consistent in many interviews saying that his ideal man is his dad & the person he respects the most is his mom.

  24. yeah, thanks for sharing! really happy to hear more about JKS! 🙂
    i was just wondering about Q57: Which part of your body do you like most? Maybe he was meaning collar bone? since I think he mentioned before that he like that part most 😉

  25. The more I get to know about JKS, the more I get to like him, even now love him. What you see is what you get from him. And I like it. He strikes me as someone very sincere. He’s got oodles and oodles of talents and I am sure as he ages, he will reap more success. He is a tease, he is goofy but so loveable. No wonder that at such a young age, he has achieved so much.

  26. no words can express how happy i am after reading this article. i feel like i understand him much better now.

    im so in love with you oppa!hahaha 🙂

  27. I hope he comes to India *dreamy-eyed* . . He’s so witty and interesting! Wish the eels got to talk to their master in real. . That’d be fun! <3

    Q30: Please tell us the best book in your life.
    JKS: “Norwegian Wood” by Haruki Murakami.
