From starting as a child model in a clothing catalogue, Jang Keun Suk has come a long way now, thanks to his ever supportive fans. And as a reward, it seems that Jang Keun Suk’s Future Plans will also be considering activities that will definitely bring smiles to them.
Lined up with the most popular of Korean celebrities, he is frequently included as one of Hallyu stars representative. That is why he was among the stars which X Sports News chose to interview as part of their recent 9th Anniversary celebration.
Since his rise in stardom, his name has echoed abroad and has gained the title of “Asia Prince”, which his fans are very proud of. And he seems to be totally comfortable hearing his title, too.
When JKS was asked how it must have felt for him being labeled as one of the Hallyu Stars that represent Korea, he says:
I feel honored and proud having been able to expanded my activities even throughout Asia and Japan. I am also aware that it would mean a lot more responsibility, which I am also willing to take.
Concert venues, fan meetings, and airports are the places with the most concentrations of his eels (that’s an endearment he has given to all his fans). Even amidst rumors that his number of fans are declining, JKS doesn’t seem to notice it at all.
Declining or not, I still see a lot of overseas fans waiting and greeting me wherever I go. I am even surprised to meet younger fans, even male ones. And I thank them for making me feel so loved, and that is all that matters.
JKS’ fans are not just located in Korea and in Asia. They can be found all around the globe. There are even hundreds of fan clubs established out of the fans’ love and support for him.
In return, JKS is most grateful and would always declare that they are the source of his inspiration for the future.
To my Eels abroad, Are you doing well? I think of you always and will continue to thank you for your wholehearted support, even if you are far away.
And What are Jang Keun Suk’s Future Plans?
The future may be too vague to predict, but it doesn’t stop him from cooking up plans for it.
As an actor, I’d like to keep building my filmography. As a singer I look forward to expanding into an Asian tour and even a world tour. Trying out new productions and having solo promotions abroad would be very exciting, too. And most of all, I really want to finally meet all my fans around the world, face to face.
Jang Geun Suk has just wrapped up earlier this year his latest drama “Jackpot” or “The Royal Gambler” in its English title.
He engaged on an Asia tour and a Japan concert right after that, where he promoted his singing career. He recently released his single ‘Darling Darling’ last month and soon will also be releasing anther song entitled “Endless Summer”.
Jang Geun Suk is also appearing on “My Ear’s Candy” and has recently shared some sweet chemistry with Yoo In Na. However, those fans who are looking forward in seeing him back on the small screen may need to wait a little while longer.
I would like to rest for a while after filming my recent historical drama, but I haven’t stopped looking at scripts, and once a good project comes along, I will always be ready.
Now that’s a good hope for eels, isn’t it? As a loyal eel, being included in jang Keun Suk’s future plans is indeed an inspiring thing.
