After a year, the beautiful guy still retains his charm. Earlier, JKS came to Hong Kong to hold his fan-meeting. Besides the many fans who turned up at his fan-meeting, wherever JKS went, he received much support, evidence that this beautiful guy has his attractiveness.
From “You are Beautiful” to “Marry me Mary”, JKS has been acting the role of singer. In real life, he also has a dream of being a singer, and this year, JKS has finally realized his dream. He released his debut album in Japan and has achieved excellent results, once again proving that with determination, dreams can come true.
Motivation from fans
Jang Keun Suk loves his fans very much, and his fans are also known for protecting him, especially Hong Kong fans who are hard to forget. “Hong Kong fans are really very passionate. Last year was my first time in Hong Kong for promotional events. While I was midway through dinner at a restaurant, the police came. I was asked to leave without finishing much of the food, because many people were standing outside the restaurant and even on the road obstructing traffic, so the police asked me to leave. Also, after the successful performance last year, I went to celebrate with my team and became a bit tipsy. The paparazzi took some photos of me. At that time, in order to protect me, some fans almost got into a fight with the paparazzi, haha! So I want to remind the paparazzi to be careful, because my fans are really awesome.”
Besides supporting their idol, fans also did many things which made Jang Keun Suk feel touched. “Like this time, fans donated towards the Japan relief efforts in my name, some bought bus advertisements for me and sometimes give me drinks and biscuits. All these warm my heart.”With such considerate fans, it’s no wonder that JKS wants to keep his promise to come again to Hong Kong to thank his fans!
The reward of singing
Having acted as a singer or musician in the past, many mistakenly thought that JKS was a singer, but actually he was an actor until this year when JKS can claim to be a singer too. “Being a singer in drama and in real life is really different. During acting, all the scenes are pre-determined; the actor only follows the character. But as a real singer releasing my album in Japan and topping the sales chart after a couple of days, this phenomenon is even more dramatic than television and incredible. I am more touched by this, because this is not pre-determined. This comes from my hard work. I feel very fortunate to receive everyone’s affirmation.”
His first album release has also made JKS recall his first public singing performance. “I kept that video. That was when I was 21 years old. Just thinking of it is horrifying. At that time, I didn’t have my own songs and sang someone else’s. To be able to stand on the stage then was unbelievable. I was so nervous and my mind was a total blank.”Now JKS is of course calmer when it comes to singing, like his Cri Show in Hong Kong this time, his every gesture and pose exuded a singer’s demeanour.
Friendly as ever
Despite being a Hallyu idol, JKS continues to be friendly. In Hong Kong for his promotional events, he often smiles and makes people happy.
