Jang Keun Suk himself commented about his unprecedented giant expo, the Zikzin Festival, held in Osaka from August 3-4.
The Zikzin Festival was an expo for his original brand ′Zikzin′, and featured many booths as well as performances by himself and Team H.
′Zikzin Town′ and ′Zikzin Street′ featured booths that were named after Jang Keun Suk′s songs, selling rare items from the Sibuya Zikzin Shop and nail stickers. They also had photo zones, theaters and a post office fans could use to send their messages to Jang Keun Suk, as well as a game corner and food court.
The entire venue resembled a giant theme park just for the actor.
Zikzin Festival had been in planning for three years, and finally came to life this year. At the time, many had been against the festival as it was such a large project, but Jang Keun Suk continued to come up with specific ideas, finally translating his dreams into reality.
Jang Keun Suk said, “I′ve always participated in planning for my concerts, but I felt more responsible for the festival because it was a new attempt completely different from my other concerts. I thought up games based on my experiences at festivals, and they were even better than I thought they would be. I hope the Zikzin Festival continues to grow and becomes one in which many people can enjoy themselves every year.”
He added about the expo in Tokyo to be held from August 24-25, “The Tokyo leg will be two times bigger than the Osaka festival, so I′ll be filling in for what the first festival lacked.”
Jang Keun Suk will next perform with Team H on August 9 and 10 for Zushi′s pool party and Tokyo′s Summer Sonic.
