Springsuk_USA’s note: It was almost two years ago when Jang Keun Suk was on Happy Camp program. That was an sensation appearance of him in China major TV program. His charm, humor, singing and unique character have earned him so many fans through one night. To remember the show, to remember the good time. I want to share this article from a book by Happy Camp Team. It is a book talked about many stars appeared on the program. This is the part of talking about Jang Keun Suk. Thank you very much for QQ to translate. Also I have put links that you want review the Happy Camp time posts. (English subbed video, pictures, weibo)
The narrative article from the book published by director of “Happy Camp”
Jang Keun Suk is the guest who have left the deepest impression on me. I have come across many “flower boy” type of artistes and was actually having reservation of inviting such “flower boy” idol guest on the program as normally they don’t show their real emotion easily. However, Jang Keun Suk is an exception. As I didn’t know much about him before, I have done some detail homework to understand him more by going through videos of his various work, interviews etc. Through those videos, I find most adorable characteristics in him is that he has such a honest and down to earth personality, with no pretense and with child-like innocence. While working with his company on the details of his guest appearance, I wanted to elaborate on this unique personality of him on the program as it should be well loved by the audience.
After meeting Jang Keun Suk in person, I realise he is just like what I have anitcipated.. as lively as a child playing when he is on stage, even behind the stage, he behaves in the same way. Even when he was reading the script, he would passionately coordinate with his staffs with games they play among themselves and when his phone rings with music, he would dance freely with the music… once, he even jokingly asked me “director, who is more handsome, XXX or me?”. He is also a very professional artiste as he would use his handphone to view through the earlier episodes of “Happy Camp” to study and understand the structure of the program till the last moment. He has blend in with our program so well and even provide his suggestion on certain areas. He also repeatedly run through the dance steps and music with us to have common understanding. Ultimately, a good episode of the program requires not only a good program design, host’s creativity but also a guest’s hard work and cooperation.
