[News] CNN flies to Korea to see new-generation Hallyu star Jang Keun Suk


In order to see the glamour of the new-generation Hallyu star Jang Keun Suk, even the CNN from America has sent out its troops.

On 16 July, American and Japanese mainstream media such as CNN, Fuji TV and Tokyo Communications will be sending their reporters to the filming set of “You’re my Pet” to do on-the-scene reporting.

Such a big batch of foreign media coming to visit a Korean-produced movie set in Korea is quite rare. This is also indirect evidence of JKS surpassing Bae Yong-joon’s status as the new-generation Hallyu star.

This year in March, JKS attended this movie’s press conference in Japan. The filming had not yet started then, but tickets (to the press conference) were all sold out.

According to sources, upon strong requests from foreign media, the YMP filming team then decided to hold an open-filming press conference at Incheon, and all along, there have been various requests from Korean media to interview JKS too, so they will take this opportunity to grant all such requests.

After having ended his Shanghai Cri Show and returned to Korea, JKS said that “there have been many interview requests from the media, but my schedule was too tight to make these arrangements. This is a very good opportunity and I will accept interviews responsibly.”

“You’re my Pet” uses a comedic line to tell of the romantic story of a boyfriend being treated like a pet. The plot is rather uncommon in Korea, but the original manga series was popular in Japan. Kang Eun-ho (acted by JKS) is a pet-like guy who is professional dancer turned musical actor. The movie will be aired in the later half of this year.

      • Thanks QQeye007, I really enjoy the video, I think I like all his interview. He is such a good person to talk to when you watch people to do such interview with him. He is smart, but also he is charming, he really is, you can see some questions, when he take a second, since he needs to think of it, but when his words come out, you will feel that’s him, that’s sukkie I adore. I admire. When he jokes, you laugh with him. When he is serious, you are serious with him. That’s his prince side, that make all of us fall to him. Thanks.
