[article] Jang Keun Suk Says ‘Pretty Boy’ is More Important than His Popularity

Original source: mwave

Jang Keun Suk shared his thoughts on his previous dramas, which had both succeeded, and failed in terms of popularity.

On November 18, Jang Keun Suk attended the press conference for his upcoming drama Pretty Boy along with the other cast of the drama, including IU, Lee Jang Woo and Han Chae Young.
On the success and failure of his previous dramas, Jang Keun Suk said, “Before I even talk about success and failure, I would like to say my goal is to show my presence as an actor in a drama. If I cannot have that presence, it is my fault.”

The actor continued to share his thoughts on acting, “I am still young. Instead of trying to be a big star at once, I want to try acting in different roles, to strengthen my acting skills.”

Jang Keun Suk continued to show his passions when he said, “I choose dramas that can make what I have as cons into pros. I want my dramas to be successful, but even if it isn’t, I don’t fear to act in the next one. I am always ready and waiting to act in the next drama.”

Wanting to regain his image as an actor, Jang Keun Suk chose his next project to be Pretty Boy, where he will be acting as the pretty man ‘Dokko Matte,’ who is on a mission to find and conquer ten successful women.

Pretty Boy will air its first episode on November 20.

  1. So agree with him…he is still young and very talented so he should not be afraid to try it all
    He showed us his many sides already…
    and yet our cameleon is getting more and more colors…emotions, facial and body expressions, looks and tone
    Every time is different…I’m not tired of his “face” yet…and I’m sure I’ll never be for he is such engaging actor
    Even as a singer he showed us his cameleon side and we love it all…

  2. Reading this article, my heart goes out for Jang Keun Suk, understanding full well the pressures and adversities he is facing in his homeland and the PIG situation he has there. I feel like crying for him, for his longing to be respected and recognized by his people. Even though, Sukkie has many Koreans eels who love him, always stay by his side thru his up and down…..but Jang Keun Suk still needs to win the majority hearts of Korea, for his Dramas or movies to be successful there.

    No matter what will happen, I will always be by your side. I love your strong driven positive energy and determination to be GREAT ACTOR. I super LOVE his fighting and Never Give Up attitude!! Even his dramas failed in TV Rating, I was sure he was disappointed or he won’t blame himself hard on his downfall, like it was all his faults. I am also feel so PROUD of him for always picked himself up after the falls, and continue on ZikZin!!!!

    Jang Keun Suk-ah, you are a nature born and gifted ACTOR, so very rare for an ACTOR like you to come along in one life time. Please please don’t feel sad or mad if your DRAMA is not receiving high rating in Korea. Please look pass and beyond it.!!! Please..knowing that EELs are sooo proud of you, of every things that you have done!!! Please keep on fighting and keep on ZikZin!!!

  3. I just cannot understand why his acting in Love Rain is a failure for Korean audience. It touched the heart of the audience around the world. Prince, your acting is great, you can express all the human emotions so well that they bring tears into our eyes, smiles into our faces, and happiness into our hearts. I think it is so cruel if any critic would criticize him as a bad actor. Show us your evidence when you say so, be more constructive. Do not just criticize out of your personal dislike of the person

  4. why is the title such an exaggeration of the actual content of the article? sukkie just wants to say that he just wants to do his best and not be bothered by popularity.

  5. Sukkie is the only actor who can do any kind of character given n love rain is the best drama ever in the history of k drama. JKS deserves all the awards for the best actor category. No matter what the domestic ratings say u r the prince of millions of hearts all over the world who r in love with sarang bi. No award can honour your extraordinary acting. Keep going like this. Your mere presence on screen only inspires your eels. U r a world prince dear. Love u always.
