[29 Jan 2011] News snippets from Seoul FM and LH
These are what Jang Keun Suk said during his 29 Jan events, and what we hear from people who were there.
1. JKS will be recording his new music album from 31 Jan onwards, and he sang a line from his new song.
2. JKS said that he had wanted to produce an album earlier, but generally Korean music producers tend not to give very good songs to actors, and he had actually been in touch with many music producers before to ask for their help, but it was very difficult until he met the music producer of “Marry me Mary” (M3). JKS felt that he must grab the opportunity to collaborate with this music producer.
[Me: Don’t understand which record company / music producer would want to pass up the chance to collaborate with JKS whose star power almost guarantees good album sales?]
[29 Jan 2011] TBS online broadcast of Yokohama Fan-meeting
What an extremely busy blogging night!
Unfortunately, the online broadcast was a complete let-down. The website was totally inaccessible and I only know of one eel who managed to watch it online. Guess I won’t be trying to watch online broadcasts again. The lesson to learn is, it is still better to buy the original FM DVD to support our Keun-Suk oppa 🙂
So here are just some screen captures of the show for consolation.

[29 Jan 2011] Frontline news from Seoul fan-meeting and Lounge H
For those of us not there in person at Lounge H (LH) today, these pictures are all we are going to see.
Haha, does it make you feel like attending LH, just to experience the electrifying atmosphere our dear Jang Keun Suk whips up? ; p
p.s. any other LH pictures of JKS circulated online will of course be illegal ones (so keep them to yourselves), since JKS himself always expressly asked eels not to take pics of LH.
First, the man appeared at LH with a sexy butterfly tattoo behind his ear, said tattoo being a side product that was on sale at the event.
Then, I laughed like mad at this next titbit of news.
Wallpapers freebie 1
The year 2011 should be sweeter with all these JKS candy calendar wallpapers to accompany you throughout the year.
Not sure whether you’ll get the full size when you save these pics to your desktop.
Samsung Galaxy Player CF (Ep 1 – 2) Chinese / English subtitles
Korean CF for Codes Combine
Ok, I feel guilty about posting this, because other than it’s a Korean commercial shoot for Codes Combine (a fashion clothes line assumably), I know about this as much as Baidusukbar does, which is, nothing much else.
So what all us eels are doing are just admiring his make-up in the picture above 🙂
Updated Zegda Commercial
Jang Keun Suk’s Zegda commercial has started airing in China. This video should be clearer.
[27 Jan 2011] Showcase snippets
I must really report two snippets: one shows the usual wit of JKS in answering questions, and as for the other, I really need to spell out what I think of JKS’ friend.
Emcee: Where have you been recently?
JKS: China, Thailand and Japan not too long ago.
Emcee: Who did you go with?
JKS: Definitely not by myself.
Emcee: Don’t tell me you went with your girlfriend?
JKS: Closer to me than girlfriend… …
[27 Jan 2011] Samsung Galaxy live showcase
Now, how does one blog about an online, broadcast showcase that one has not seen? Basically, I don’t care what happened at the showcase (haha) so long as I can feast my eyes on Jang Keun Suk, and boy, was he gorgeous!
The ‘gorgeous’ part might be a bit debatable though, depending on your sense of fashion, because JKS has again managed to stir up a bit of controversy over his dressing. I suppose the point of controversy is his see-through shirt, which adds to the delectable part. My own sense of fashion is deplorable to the extent that I don’t trust my own taste, yet may I venture a small suggestion that perhaps it was that black strip across the chest that makes it look like … a bra? Couldn’t the translucent and black form other patterns i.e. straight horizontal black strips, or a heart shape, diamond shape, whatever shape? Still, overall, I think he still looks great 🙂
[My Thoughts] JKS Travel Bug Bites – Part 1
Celebrities really have the power to stimulate the economy i.e. get people to spend more money. Just look at Jang Keun Suk for example. His popular dramas and movies must have sold lots of CDs and DVDs overseas notwithstanding online proliferancy, not to mention all the “You Are Beautiful” accessories (stickers, earrings, keychain, pig rabbit stuffed toys etc). Then he embarked on his Asia Tour 2010. Not only were all his fan-meeting tickets sold out usually within the first day of ticket purchase (and they don’t come cheap), fans trailed him from country to country, spending on airfare, hotel etc.
On the rising tide of JKS’ popularity comes more commercial offers. Ever since his commercial debut at the age of 5, JKS has been fortunate, with commercial endorsements pouring in almost every year. Just this year alone, he has been to China and Thailand to shoot advertisements.
Then the guy decides to cut a music album

Airtime for Jang Keun Suk in Korea with these latest commercials.
I can only say, when he appears in the middle of CF Ep 1, I was … screaming happily!
Mm… do you think two of Kang Mu-Gyul’s bandmates being in this CF is due to JKS, or just a coincidence? 🙂
CF Ep 2 is more of a red herring ….
