Fuji-TV NEXTsmart variety show ‘Agent Jang Keun Suk’
May 21st (Wed) 22:30~23:00
As as a commemorative variety show of Fuji-TV NEXTsmart opening broadcasting, JKS’ first Japanese regular TV variety show in his name goes on air. He, who has captured the hearts of a lot of Japanese fans through various dramas, absolutely looks like a real prince of our time, but in this program we’ll see his another side, charming him more than his typical image as a prince.
In order to gain ‘popularity (EEL POINTS: points for being an eel*)’ in Japan, JKS is going to accomplish various missions as an ‘agent’ sent by a secret organization ‘UNG’. (*JKS calls his fans ‘eel’ in the sense that fans give him energy like his favorite food, eel.)
tenshi_akuma’s note: UNG stands for UNaGi? Unagi means eel in Japanese. Lol.
In the 1st and 2nd episodes, Agent Jang Keun Suk tries to learn ‘a woman’s mind’ through dating as the mission! The woman he learns about ‘a woman’s mind’ is a popular model and actress, Triendl Reina. She is a bit ditsy. Her eccentric character makes him confused easily. Can he succeed this date with her and complete the mission to gain EEL POINTS!?
When he appeared driving his Ferrari, there was a sightseeing bus in front of him. Surprisingly, his first mission was to play the role of ‘bus tour guide’. The open-air double deck bus left Shiba Park for Tokyo station and Ginza and he was trying to introduce these sightseeing spots like a bus tour guide. Then, the unexpected happened!! In addition to this mission, he’s carrying out another mission through touring Tokyo.
This JKS’ first original variety show will bring out humanity in Jang Keun Suk and entertain not only eels but also male viewers to be his eels without knowing it.
Jang Keun Suk comments:
Q: What do you think about your new TV show?
Finally! I’m going to have my own TV show! It’s a new challenge for me, so I will do my best with the help of guests. I’d like to provide an experience that everyone can enjoy. Please look forward to seeing the show! Eels, it’ll surely become fun. Please don’t miss it!
Q. What is your impression after the first shooting?
My Japanese is not perfect, so I felt scared and nervous to complete my own show alone. But I trust the friendly crew and once the shooting started, I really enjoyed being ‘Agent Jang Keun Suk’ apart from the TV show. Especially, I enjoyed dating with Tri-chan. I feel like I have a friendly feeling for her… We can’t wait to see the next mission of ‘Agent Jang Keun Suk’!
