After interviewed by the MC, there are also some questions:
Q: Early when he was in Shanghai, because some fans crazily chasing his car, this time no people following him, how he feels about it?
A: The most important is safety, if you keep it safe, even you follow me for the whole day I will still be happy. But for those who don’t care for safety, speeding on the road, cross yellow lines I can’t accept that. This time I come to Taiwan there was nobody follow me, I thought I’m not popular anymore, I was thinking to go back to Korea!
The MC Wu Janheng says because eels are following orders they have been asked not to follow his car, that’s why there was nobody. Jang Keun Suk is cute, he yells to eels: Come to follow me safely! He even said in Chinese: I’m sorry, I love you!
Q: Is there a possibility to open official fans club to Taiwan fans?
A: Besides Official Fan Club, if at Grand China area, every place has it own special fan club, that would be fun too! Or through internet to talk to fans, just like to be in love with fans, that’s good too.
Q: Last time you came with your toe hurt, this time, his face was hurt, don’t you feel there is always something happen?
A: I think, compare to perform under the perfect situation, even there is little hurt but still can perform perfectly, isn’t this is more dramatic? But I didn’t hurt myself on purpose. (in Chinese) Zhen de, zhen de! (It’s true, true).
Note: Last year when he came to Taiwan, he was shooting You’re My Pet, during shooting, when he was playing soccer with staff during break he hurt his toe. 🙂
Q: Last year you said you have no love experiences, this year do you want to be in love?
A: What is be in love? I don’t know (laugh), to talk to eels is also be in love… I think two people care for each other listen to each other, spend some good time together everyday is important for be in love. I’m too busy everyday, sometime I don’t even know which country I fly in. So I can’t help, there is no time for love. I feel to interact with eels is more interesting! I have girl friends in Taiwan, Korea and Japan! Conquer the world!
Q: You have said you would like to get married early, but you’re so busy, it is possible?
A: Maybe get married with fans.
Q: If suddenly you have a vacation, where you want to go?
A: This year on my birthday I wanted to travel, to an uninhabited island, really a place nobody is there. My manager gave me a birthday party, really interesting, it was good memory. But if I have the chance, I would like to go to a place with a lot women, because I don’t have any scandal, so, many people misunderstand that I like man, I love woman!
