English translation: Wen Lee

Korea No.1 Pretty Boy Jang Keun Suk joining in Hunan TV’s new year countdown party? Yesterday, our reporter interviewed the director of the countdown party and confirmed this news. As to the criticism on the internet that this was only a false promotional act, the director ‘strongly’ expressed: “He is really coming, if he doesn’t, I swear I won’t watch Korean dramas ever again, I promise”.

Apparently, JKS has built friendly ties with Hunan TV after filming Happy Camp in June 2012. When Hunan TV New Year party directing team issued invitation to JKS, communication between both parties went smoothly. It didn’t take long to confirm his participation for the NY countdown party.

Our reporter understands that in Korea, JKS practises Chinese whenever he has time in order to provide a great performance, “because he hopes to use Chinese for simple communication and to express himself”, according to staff in the directing team.
