    • If you want to be their official fan club member, you need to pay for the membership fee. If you can’t, please get his info though twitter, Facebook and our blog ^^

  1. Thanks for this additional info… We are also helping some of our members in JKSPH group who wants to join but no pay-pal account… I hope that more new eels will join this 🙂

  2. Can someone tell me their experience with this official fan club? I am overseas, so I am not sure if I should join this one or other JKS fan clubs. What are some of the activities from princejks.com?

    • Usually normal members of CRI-J (Princejks.com) is just to view his latest and exclusive pics or videos on the website. Such pics, videos and even infos are strictly prohibited to share outside the website. You can read his message to eels there. Normally he writes in Korean, but kind eels help to translate it under community page. There are fan community page in Korean, Chinese, English and Chinese. You’ll be able to communicate with eels there. If you’re interested in attending his show, being the member helps you to get tickets.

      Of course, there are many unofficial fan club organized by fans. So you can join there and make friends.

    • Hi Kate, I’m also an overseas eel who doesn’t speak Korean and a member of CriJ5 (official FC/ website). Mainly I log in to check his latest message (though in Korean, google translate doesn’t help that much but still… knowing that he’s online and writing a personal message just for us eels… being able to type in my messages and knowing that there’s a slight chance he might read it, it’s already something to me). We can check exclusive pictures and videos which are not shared publicly. We can also check notifications (first hand information) from Tree J Staff or Cri J3 Staff (the Korean eels). During this one year period, we have shared information and arranged some activities (JKS’s birthday gifts, rice wreath information for charity etc) through the official website forum as well. This year there’ll be official merchandise option available for overseas eels (non Korean, Japanese or Chinese OFC eels), too. This is an improvement from last year, which means that Sukkie and Tree J want to facilitate his overseas eels more and more now 🙂

    • Thanks Tenshi and Noona for your detailed information! I am interested in joining his official fan club, but I don’t understand Korean. Can I ask a few more questions to you guys: Can you navigate princejks.com smoothly (find his pics/videos, etc) without knowing any Korean? Also, do you feel like you have gotten as much a good experience on that web site as the Korean-speaking eels? I really appreciate your help 🙂

      • The navigation buttons are all in English and you just need to click them :). Of course the K-eels will have more benefits in terms of language, however when there are activities that could involve overseas eels, Cri-J staff would also post the info/ notice in English. For JKS’s personal messages, he would normally type in Korean, as it is his mother tongue and somehow it’s better to express his feelings by using the language he is more comfortable with. Some nice and hardworking eels would then translate his messages to English and we all could read the translation afterwards :). One thing that I adore the most from fellow eels is that we don’t seem to ‘group’ ourselves. For example, K-eels are so friendly and they could mingle well with overseas eels also through PrinceJKS website platform :). There are some activities that only K-eels can do in Korea e.g. regular voluntary work in Seoul on behalf of JKS but whenever it is possible for overseas eels to take parts, they would kindly let us know. So I personally feel helped and ‘closer’ to JKS as well as fellow eels by being a member of his OFC website :).

      • Hi Noona. Wow you got me excited about JKS’s Korea official fan club! 🙂 Seems like it’s very international eels friendly, which is a MAJOR plus. Can’t wait to join! ;). Thanks again for all your information! It really helped me decide to join.

  3. hello everyone,
    by joining on geun suk’s official fans club,is it valid for a lifetime membership?what about for those who are not already an eel(those who are just visiting this site),they can be an eel first before joining to the official fans club of geun suk?is the official fans club conducts an activity for some bonding moments with geun suk and to his fans even for those who live in abroad?thanks a lot..more power!!

    • The membership period is one year. So you need to apply every year with yearly membership fee. But they only recruit the new members in a limited period, so if you miss the time, you need to wait for another one year. If you’re interested in attending his concerts or fan meeting from other countries, it’s helpful to get the tickets. Even you don’t plan to, you can read his exclusive messages, staff blogs, and pics and videos only for the official members. Such pics, videos and even infos are not allowed to share in public. When JKS logs in the website to leave his message or just view your comments, ‘ON’ mark on the website shows that he’s online now.
      If you’re not his eel yet, like our blog, many fan blogs or his official twitter and Facebook help you to share his latest info.

      • Thanks a lot tenshi _akuma for explaining it clearly by joining on geun suk’s official fans club. I’m interested to join (hopefully I can make it). It really helps a lot!! But there’s another question that popped up to my mind,I hope you don’t mind, if we already filled up an application,is there a due date to pay for membership fee?? I mean is, we have to pay it within a day or you will give us a week to pay it??how much it in euros? Because I live here in Europe(Italy) and I don’t have any idea about the conversion of the amount,,thanks again!!

      • First of all, all payments should be done by PayPal. So if you don’t have the PayPal account, you need to prepare before the registration period starts. Usually PayPal converts your currency to the specific one, so this time I think you need to type 22USD on PayPal website, then proper amount will be deducted from your bank account.
        One more thing, if you are from Italy, did you check this post before? Our ECI friends from Italy and other European countries organized a big project before. You can contact with them if you need any help. Good luck!

        P.S. Payment should be completed within the application period. PayPal is online service, so usually after you fill in all info on Princejks.com, then you go through the payment procedure on the Internet.

      • hello tenshi,
        i do appreciate your effort for explaining everything.now i feel relieved and fully understood the procedure.a million thanks to you. you’re nice and kind..

    • Bethsky, “eel” means just Sukkies fan, someone who loves and care about JKS. If you feel that you are his eel then you are his eel. Bonding moments with JKS are his fan meetings. You can get help to buy a tickets on princejks.com.

      I´m “overseas” too, and very far away from East Asia. I have never attended his concert or fan meeting, but I hope that I will do that one day. I just want to say that it´s a special feeling reading Sukkies messages and watching the videos and pictures that are for his fans only.

      He has for instance recomand us some vidoes he likes. Sometimes when Cri J organize something JKS makes a short video only for CriJ. I thought it would be for chinese eels only but we have seen “JKS dances on th Great Wall” video too. 😉 We have for instance seen some videos from Zikzin Radio recording. And you can answer him too if you want. The eels also shares sometimes stuff you can´t see other places. CriJ organize aktivies but it´s not easy for us who lived far from Korea to participate. I don´t know what expectations you have. It´s not like that something happens every day, but it´s our bond to Sukkie.

      I will apply for next year too. I will apply every year as long as Sukkie has fan club. 😉

      • Zoe, yes I really love Prince Sukkie, and we have the same dream is to watch Prince Sukkie on his concerts live and meet him in person and I’m agree to you that it’s hard for us who living in abroad to do those things. And I know it really helps us to be updated to our prince by joining on the official fans club. I would like to say thank you for giving an info about the activities and updates that we can see on a website..it made me feel too excited to know everything about geun suk..thank you guys!!

      • You´re welcome Bethsky. 🙂 I´m from Europe too (Norway).

        22 dollars are 17,23 euros BTW.

        I´m glad you and Kate want to join.:)

      • Ciao Eva, mi sono interessata, ma non sapevo come fare. mi potete aiutare? verso paypal,posso usare una postepay?non ho altro..scusatemi perche non ho parlato bene la lingua italiana perche io sono filippina.grazie mille!

  4. I joined CriJ 5 last year. Would someone please let me know how I can continue my membership? Do I pay the membership fees every year with the same ID?

    I’ve been having problems reading the “JKS Message” from princejks.com. Is there any translations available for his messages? When I click the “Select language” option at the top right corner, it will translate the message into English but the meanings are all weird. I’d really love to understand his messages. Hope someone can help me out! Thanks in advance!

    • The membership period is one year. So you need to apply every year to renew your membership. I think you’ll use the same ID when you apply for CRI-J 6th. About his message, kind eels post the translation under community page. Please check there.

  5. Dear Tenshi!!!Thank you for sharing information. We do not have to get goods, is not it?
    Only paying membership fees(22$), – membership can we get?
    Because some eels is shipping charges difficulty in paying.
    So that it would be easy for them membership.
    They after then can get goods.

  6. Hi Tenshi, I registered for the Cri-J 6th membership and I also got the goods. I hope I did the right thing by just adding the amounts that was stated. I hope I will receive an email from Tree-J soon.
