[NEWS] Fun Bites [U]

Another JKS article of the SG FM from Channel U.

This prince wants to be No. 1 in Asia!

Lately, there’s a surge of Korean drama fans joining our FB page. When we posted Jang Keun Suk’s photo that was taken recently, I’m sure it sent many of your hearts fluttering.

Yes, we caught Jang Keun Suk when he was here late April. For those who are not familiar with him, he is one of the lead actors of our 11.30pm drama, also known as the cool and calm Prince Lee Chang Hwi. Feel free to drop a comment on what you think of his acting on the drama, Hong Gil Dong, The Hero.

Jang Keun Suk in real life is pretty chatty, unlike his character in Hong Gil Dong, The Hero, and I must say, I’m really impressed by his ability to hold conversations mainly in English. And this is his first visit in Singapore. We have met a number of Korean celebrities but rarely do we find ourselves having to ignore the translator that often accompany them. That is, of course, apart from Rain.

Jang Keun Suk dreams to be No.1 in Asia and is determined to work very hard in order to achieve an idol status like Jay Chou and Rain. Like Lee Chang Hwi, he is very ambitious. He is a true blue achiever and is extremely strict on his diet. His waistline currently measures at 27-inches!!! That is nearly as slim as many women!! When asked if he were a pet, what kind of pet would he choose to be, he picked rabbit. Reason being rabbits eat only grass so there’s no need to diet. Health-conscious? Or image-conscious? You tell me.

We grabbed him for a quick 1-to-1 session and there, he was preparing his lines… all of it in English. Taking it very professionally, Jang Keun Suk was very good in delivering his lines but at this point of time, there was a lot chattering just outside the room. The chattering disrupted his recording and it made him very angry. So, he turned towards the noise and ……

…shouted to the people outside to keep quiet.

My colleagues and I exchanged looks for the sudden outburst. We thought he was going to throw our microphone and stomp away, leaving us to report back to work empty-handed. But he didn’t. He kept his cool, the noise hushed quickly and the trailer shot of Jang Keun Suk was completed in less than 10mins.

The trailer starts today(5 May) !!! Look out for it

His role in Hong Gil Dong, The Hero, is going to face a major dilemma. Can he successfully take over the throne? When faced by threats from the aristocrats, can he keep Hong Gil Dong as his ally still? Watch on, the story is getting more intense and exciting. Every Mon-Fri, 11.30pm.

    just want to say, I think he is cool! :D. when he shouted at people outside.

    it kinda make me feel that he is a real and true person, unafraid to show his emotions, feel so much closer even though we are so far apart? hahax!
