Superstars are always accompanied by the police – Jang Keun Suk is definitely no exception. Whenever he arrives at the airport, a vast crowd of people will wait to welcome him, and the sight is truly amazing. In June, he had to be escorted by dozens of police just so that he could leave the Hong Kong Airport! Wherever he goes, dozens of police had to be mobilized to escort him.

Jang Keun Suk is well-known for being close to his fans – to show his appreciation and love, he prepared different surprises for fans at different cities. During each fan signing session, Jang Keun Suk shook hands sincerely with his fans. At Hong Kong’s fan sign, he even put on a bracelet immediately after a fan handed it to him, moving the girl to tears.

(Asia Tour Episode 4) Fan Chase!

During his Asia Tour, Jang Keun Suk was able to visit many cities, each stay ranging from three days to one week. Of course, his stay was “accompanied” by fans who used all sorts of ways to chase his car. Every country has different common modes of star-chasing – in Taiwan, the fans chased with motorbikes, but in Hong Kong, the fans used caravans to surround his car. Jang Keun Suk said jokingly that he didn’t get a chance at all to enjoy the scenery in Hong Kong because his view was always blocked by these tall vehicles. On the other hand, as a form of remembrance, he also brought along his own camera so that he can take pictures of his fans anytime and anywhere. For someone who never fails to promote Korea in every city that he goes to, Jang Keun Suk truly has what it takes to be the new generation of Hallyu Stars.
