Many thanks for your interest and participation in our blog contest.
A total of 76 entries were received, out of which 22 entries went into a second round of intense competition.
The 3 judges are myself, tenshi_akuma (our prize sponsor) and Farina (President of Eels Club International).
I was especially touched when reading each note of encouragement, as I am sure JKS will be.
Every note is precious and radiates sincerity because it comes from your heart.
All submitted entries will be collated in some form of presentation to JKS.
Thanks again for your participation!
Finally, here are the long-awaited 10 winning entries (in random order).

When tripping you stand stronger. When tested you smile and work harder. Every minute of your struggle is the light that guides us all. When you finally find what you’re looking for we’ll still be there that day and forever after! Because you’re beloved JKS, our inspiration and everlasting promise.
Many of us eels have not seen you in person because we are so far away from you, but the distance can’t stop us from loving you, you already occupy a big part of our hearts. You’re the reasons for our smile. Please always look forward, and never back!
In this not so perfect world, I’ve found a perfect you.
So lift your head high like you always do
When the unbelievers ruin a beautiful day
Continue believing in yourself as I in you
Soar high Asia Prince!
And tomorrow the world will hail you as their King!
From: Pam (Philippines)
Be optimistic to laugh off failure and frustration;
Be tolerant to face misunderstanding and hatred;
Be modest to accept praise and incentives;
Be relieved to deal trouble and sadness;
Learn to smile away unpleasant clouds from covering your eyes;
Never let the pain of yesterday to deny today’s happiness.
You are destined for GREATNESS…
Be proud of who you are.
Be yourself, and let the world take notice.
When the odds are against you,
Stand brave and tall; don’t ever give up!
Hold on to your dreams… never let go!
No matter what,
Your EELs are here for you.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
So, discover your world and then give yourself to it with all your heart.
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience,
and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Never allow the words and actions of people that don’t matter bring you down. We know the real you, so we will always support and protect you because you are our beloved Prince. No matter how many times they put you down, we will help you rise again.
You are a beautiful person inside and out so don’t worry when they judge you because in the end what matters is how you remain true to yourself. We love you for who you really are and not for what you are not. Please remain strong and be healthy always!

Dear Jang Geun Suk,
You are like a diamond: transparent, strong and bright…Simply irresistible!
Some might throw mud at you, but you know …
mud does not affect a diamond’s value.
A diamond sparkles even more and the real beauty is shown.
Be yourself no matter what.
Never lose courage.
Never lose faith.
Nothing in this world is impossible when you are determined.
A blossom, which can endure the toughest conditions, will bear the sweetest fruit.
You are the best!
From Liza Ceng
