“Hello~ STARCAST! It has been a long time”
Hello. I’m actor, no, singer Jang Keun Suk. I say greetings with ‘Team H’ today. It is 25th, right? I have released my single album ‘Take Me’ in Japan and China.
Korean eel and overseas eel, it has been a long time~. I’ve been quiet changing during these days. I hope you forget about previous Jang Keun Suk.
You’re curious? First, the music has changed. ‘Team H’ is actually a group performing electronic genre. I’ve shown powerful images until now. But I filled it up with cheerful feeling by taking off heavy mood this time. It’s a good song to listen.
My style changed according to it. I’ve pursued strong style in the meanwhile with smoky makeup and chic clothes. But I’ve come back to fresh young man in 20’s. Smoky is out~ chic is also out~
Where can you check it out? You can watch me in the ‘Take Me’ music video.
Tada~ Here is the place where I shot the music video. Can you feel the exotic mood? Do you know where this is? Is it Paris, France where I called out ‘New York Herald-Tribune’ suddenly? Or is it Melbourne, Australia where I danced shuffle dance madly?
The answer is Jeju-do, South Korea.
Are you surprised by saying, “Is there a place like this in Jeju-do?” Jeju-do is a beautiful place. Besides, it suits the image of ‘Take Me’. I felt that I was running a green field when I listened to this song. Jeju-do is just like that.
Are ‘Eel’ familiar with this picture? This is the album jacket photo. I had slightly released it on Twitter. How do you like my changed style? There is no eye makeup and leather jacket. Face is natural, clothes are casual. How is it like? More gentle?
“Return of handsome guy”
“His side line is also handsome”
Loyalty comes up when thinking Jang Keun Suk! I took the jacket photo with Zo Sun Hi. We have long relationship. Since we met at 2006, it has been 8 years. We match with each other so well. We shot the photo laughing together happily.
“Burst out of laughter even when we see each other”
“The monitor is also happy”
This is the time to introduce the music video. This is the scene where me and Big Brother rides a minibus at full speed. We arrive at a strange place. We went into the forest as if we were possessed to something like ‘Spirited Away’.
It is the content of both of us visiting an unknown town, teaching music and enjoying together. So we shot the scene by running around the forest. But, the more we shot the scene, the more we got amazed. Jeju-do was so beautiful that we were enchanted.
“serious facial expression”
“we cannot miss it~”
“comeback as a mischievous boy”
“we cannot miss this out either”
We ran around the broad field after passing through the forest. This is what I imagined when I first listened to ‘Take Me’. Exotic scenery, field filled with green color, the feeling running to this place. How do you like it? Doesn’t it suit right?
This is the highlight. This is the image of us enjoying music with strange people, which is the message of this music video. Skin color? What does that matter? Language? What does that matter? We can become one with music whenever we meet strange people at strange place.
This is the scene which we shot by being absorbed in it. We actually heard ‘Take Me’ while shooting. Our shoulders went up and down in joy. The scenery, weather, and people that were with us all came into my favor.
There was a special guest. It is the horse since Jeju-do is famous for it. But as you can see, me and Big Brother is slightly stiff~. Actually, we are afraid of horses. It did not stay still since it was a free spirit.
But thanks to it, a great scene came out in the music video! Click if you’re curious~
“We’re not afraid…”
This is the best scene that I have chosen. It is the ending scene. Me and Big Brother has lain long. Isn’t the surrounding scenery amazing? We can be honorary ambassador of Jeju-do, right?
Here is at Jeju-do Volcanic Cone. It is one of Volcanic Cones in Jeju-do. This site is off-limits to general public. But we got special permission. The natural place was fantastic since it was visited by no one.
“I’m honorary ambassador of Jeju-do ~”
“Take Me Jeju~, healing~”
The behind story of ‘Take Me’ is until now. Are you glad of new Jang Keun Suk? His change will keep continue. He is going to release his 3rd regular album, ‘Driving to the highway’, next month. Please expect how he will change again that time.
I will release all the pictures that I possess since it will be sad to finish like this.
Eel, keep them for yourselves~

“It’s a pictorial even though he’s being natural~”
