English translation: Hazy Lee from ECI

On 1st and 2nd of Apr, Jang Keun Suk held his 3rd show of ‘2015 Jang Keun Suk Cri Show 3’ in Fukuoka. The stage is the same where he held his FM ‘Where is your star’ 5 years ago, hence this show becomes more meaningful.

When he first held his FM on 2010 Nov 12 here, Jang Keun Suk said: “Thank you everyone for being here, I will continue to work hard so you can be proud as my eels, please continue to support me” He gained much applause with such a bold declaration. 3 days later, he started the Japan official fan club, being one of those who stir a K-wave, JKS becomes a new start.

As such, JKS who has been steadily holding the Asia Prince title till now, is being more grateful as he returns to the same stage 5 years later.

In today’s show, he recalled 5 years ago: “With here as a start, arena, ZEPP, dome to expo, I have been standing on different stages. That day being a start, I began my new history in Japan. Today CS3 to me, is also a new beginning, this place has become even more meaningful.”

At the same time, JKS expressed his thoughts: “at that time, I am still not a singer, I came on the stage as an actor, and now, I could hold a show as a singer, I am really happy. I really want to thank my eels who had walked the path with me all these years. Just like what I said 5 years ago, JKS will never let his fans feel ashamed. And I will never forget this.” All eels present were deeply touched.

Even as time passes, the thing that remains unchanged is his unwavering promise. The audiences are tearing. JKS started 5 years ago, and is now top on the K-wave. He relentlessly poured forth his love and passion on the stage, giving every moment a deeper meaning, treasuring the time together with his eels. Even at this point where K-wave is getting less popular, his worth comes from such grounded action. This made his future steps even more attractive.

In addition, JKS ‘2015 Jang Keun Suk The Cri Show 3’ Hall shows will be held in 6 cities (Osaka, Niigata, Fukuoka, Okayama, Shizuoka, Hokkaido), 12 shows, and 2 arena shows in Kobe and Tokyo, 4 shows, all in all 16 shows.

What’s unique is, the Jang Keun Suk who has all these while created exaggerated stages, has now come with a nostalgic feel, creating a heartwarming feel in his performance.

JKS ‘2015 Jang Keun Suk The Cri Show 3’ continue on 9th and 10th in Okayama. Stay tuned.

  1. yes he had it all: love,passion,desire,hard work,intelligent, good heart,everything.. And it’s a wonderful feeling to be his eel, very proud of him. ^_^

  2. I´m so glad that korean media recognise his success, and write like this about him. And I´m very happy that he is so loved in Japan. I wonder what he will do when he finishes the CS3-japan tour. Wonder if he will have CS3 in some other countries.

    Thank you so much for your translation, Hazy Lee. ^^

  3. JKS has experienced a lot in the past five years – both happy and not so happy. It’s gratifying to see him take his experiences to heart and grow as an artist and as a person. It’s strange to feel such affection for someone known only through the media, but he presents himself so sincerely and openly that it’s easy to feel I know at least a little about the real man. Like all of his eels, I find him to be a loveabe man, I thank him for all of the enjoyment he’s given me through his music and films, and I hope he soon finds the great happiness in his personal life that he deserves.

  4. ChRoma, I really appreciate your thoughts and you have put words to exactly how I feel about him but have never really been able to say. I, also, feel him to be a real and genuine man, someone whom I am very proud of even though I only know him through the media. I also have great affection for all the eels who I only know through their sharing on this site. It makes me feel I am a part of something very special and that I have at least one thing in common with people from all over the world. I find it quite extraordinary that many of us admit we have never followed an artist before. When I read articles like this one it is a good reminder of how much joy he brings to so many and how much courage it must have taken to follow through on his commitments to his early eels. I hope he feels our love and trust and knows we want to be a source of energy and joy for him.

  5. So happy for him, I wish him all the best. I wish I could be in one of his concert or he’ll come to Nottingham UK.☺

  6. Cmroma, winny……thank you for putting it together so well. He amasses me so much.I have never had follow artist or never thought I am capable of doing it.He is just contagions and touches my soul somehow.I admire him for the hard work and make me want to do more with my life. Wish him all happiness in the world.
