This one is just part 1 (there are 4 parts of the video, and so there will be 4 parts of this)

At the start of the show, the host, Mickey Huang, talked about how Keun Suk started out at a young age. He mentioned how YAB had made him popular across Asia, and he also said that it was Suk’s professionalism and his lively and humorous characters that gained him the media attention.

The interview was planned based on his character, preference, age and interest – so they chose the hip night club equipped with many facilities to mirror the many facets of Keun Suk.

Huang said he hadn’t watched kdrama for a long time – the last being autumn’s love story – but he made a point to watch YAB because he heard it’s very popular.

He heaped praises on Keun Suk, saying he’s handsome and very friendly. When asked whether he bought anything (from the convenience store) back to Korea the last time he came to Taiwan, Suk answered that he liked going to convenience stores and he mentioned oolong tea. He said he likes it a lot, that it was very nice to drink. Turned out Huang had done his homework and had prepared a carton for Suk, making Suk very happy that he opened it immediately because he wanted to try it. When he was asked why he liked it so much (because to the Taiwanese, the tea is for old people), Suk answered that drinking tea is better (than water) to help calming his mind and he likes the smell of tea.

In order to bring the carton home, Huang asked Suk to do something: peel the radish (in reference to YAB ep 5). Suk said, “So I just have to do this?” and laughed. He seriously was prepared to peel the radish then and there (with a peeler of course ^o^), and Huang said he was just joking. To this, Suk said he also liked radish and put the radish on top of his carton of tea. Huang made a remark saying Suk was really easy to get along with, and he wanted (to bring home) everything, then pretended to give him the bowling ball, making Suk laughed.

Huang: Many people knew you quite late (from YAB). But the fact was that you’ve been in showbiz much earlier. Please share with the Taiwan fans about the first time you entered the showbiz.

Suk: it was when I was 5 years old.

Huang: That’s an age when we still play with friends and to act like a spoilt brat to our parents, so why would you do that?

Suk: it wasn’t my idea to go on TV. My parents planned many chances for me. I liked to be in front of the camera, and I felt happy during the shooting, so it’s like my parents helped me to find my dream.

Then Huang took out his past photos, and they talked about the underwear ads (done when he was 12 yrs old).

Huang: Were you embarrassed then?

Suk: I tried to run away many times because I didn’t want to shoot the ads. I thought it was ads for sleepwear.

Huang: So would you shoot this kind of ads now?

Suk: I probably need 3 months to prepare for it (to train his body). But I would be fine doing it, if it’s for my movie or drama.

Huang said that a good actor would be like this (being agreeable to this) and asked him to sign the photo for him because it’s very precious.

Next are the nicer photos and Suk himself said that he’s more satisfied with them. Huang said Suk didn’t change much from childhood. Then they talked about the photo which was taken when he was shooting ORANGE, 6 months before he went abroad to study.

Huang: You’re very handsome now. A lot of gals must have liked you, maybe even guys too. Does it bother you to wear eyeliner? Do you wear one today?

Suk: A little bit.

Then they talked about Tae Kyung’s image in YAB, like why the eyeliners were so dark (it’s to fit the character).

When asked if he usually wore eyeliner, Suk said if there’s no shooting then he wouldn’t (thought last time he used to). Huang said the Taiwan guys can learn from him because after YAB, it did seem the eyeliner made guys more handsome. Suk commented that guys don’t use BB cream or eyeliner before, but it had since changed and more guys are putting on make-up.

Then Huang asked for more skincare tips and said Suk’s skin is really good.

Huang: how do you took care of it?

Suk: I drink often, go without sleep, and when I did get to sleep, I slept without removing my makeup.

Huang: how is that possible?!

Suk: I did just (drank, slept with makeup) after the celebration party last night.

Huang: Are you a good drinker.

Suk: I love to drink. In fact, I drank about 13 bottles last night. Fans gave me a very big bottle, and my staff and I finished it together.

Huang: I thought you drank it by yourself with a straw

Suk: *laughed*

Huang asked how he would behave when he’s drunk.

Suk: I would smile foolishly and get people to drink more.

Huang: Would you hug or kiss others when you’re drunk?

Suk: no.

Huang then pretended to have picture evidence, and Suk was shocked, saying, “eh, how is that possible?” Huang said he was just joking. Huang then added that he understood drinking is many people’s way of relieving stress (like Suk).

Then he asked what does Suk do at home when he’s not working on any drama or movie?

Suk: I love watching drama, movies, and reading. I wouldn’t stay idle.

Huang: Does your life is just like what’s shown on YAB? Everywhere you go there will be fans chasing after you, so it must have been hard to go to public places?

Suk: Yes. But I will try to do things I enjoy, while at the same time refrain from bringing inconvenience to others. My friends and I like to go to clubs.

And he talked about the car meeting (the recent one), saying he liked cars. Huang asked what kind, and Suk said he liked sports car. Huang joked, “how about excavator?” making Suk laughed.

[INFO] Taiwan’s “Be Friends TV Show” article

Taiwan’s “Be Friends TV Show” article

dailytofu posted an article she got from baidu and Ad-dy graciously translated it for us – SS weng


Hope this helps…

Sukkie was in Taiwan for just 4 days but he created quite astir there. In his tight schedule, he went on ‘Let’s be friends’. The host came to know that Sukkie was full of complements for Taiwan’s oolong tea. He specially prepared 1 carton of oolong tea for Sukkie which surprised him in a happy way, and opened up the oolong tea and drink on the spot. At the end of the show, the workers were tidying up the site and happened to move the carton. Sukkie got worried and said ‘that’s mine’. : ) The host also played a game of bowling with Sukkie. Sukkie said that the bowling portion was what he had been looking forward to in this Taiwan trip. He played the game with continuous strike. People present were all impressed.

The 2nd paragraph talked about how he started out as a child actor and talked about the hardships in this line. He also said how he gave up everything as an actor when he was 15 years old and went to New Zealand to study. Then he talked about how life was not easy in New Zealand where he had to take care of himself and how he had to be thrifty by buying a sofa and used it as bed. Sukkie said he quite idolized Jay Chou and hope to belike the pianist that Jay Chou acted in his movie ‘不能说的秘密’. The host suggested to him though, that in Taiwan, you need to act as a baddie in the show to be famous. Sukkie immediately acted out ‘Annoying Orange’.

In the 3rd paragraph, Sukkie talked about the kind of girl he likes… big eyes, well-defined neckline and proportioned figure. The host then showed Sukkie pictures of 4 ladies (who are very popular in Taiwan among those guys who love to stay at home), Sukkie chose 李毓芬. Mischievous Sukkie even wanted to bring back the picture of 李毓芬 and let her be his Taiwan’s girlfriend. Following that, I think they showed him some pictures of girls dressed scantily (if I’m not wrong). Sukkie laughed saying that whenever he sees this kind of pictures, he will unintentionally looked at the side or bottom of the pictures. Then the ladies on set started to make noises of disapproval. Sukkie shouted shyly and rally the host and the production group to agree with him. That guys are all like that…

Lastly, he talked about his skin regime which is drink and not removing his make-up and fall asleep. He said that at the celebration after the Taiwan FM, some fansgave him a bottle of champagne which is taller than a man. He shared with his team and drank about 50 glasses himself. Sukkie said he will start smiling at people when he is drunk and kept asking people to bottom up. The host then asked him if he will go around kissing people. Sukkie laughed loudly and said ‘No such things’

Thank you to ploinkypink@soompi for the translations.


Host: How many times have we met? (*Host is a famous photographer)
JKS: We worked together for magazine photo shoots about 5 or 6 times?
Host: but I feel like we’ve collaborated for more than 100 times already! haha~
JKS: hahahahahaha…. we know each other very well
JKS: (points) This is the photo from our first photo shoot collaboration!
Host: You look very young then…
JKS: I’m not that old now… so of course I was a lot younger then! That was when I was 20 years old.
Host: what’s your first impression of me the photographer?
JKS: A very aggressive person… hahahahahahahha!

Host: You are already 24 years now (born in 1987). What’s your zodiac sign?
JKS: I’m a Rabbit…
Host: I don’t feel that you are like a Rabbit….hahaha
JKS: I feel more like a Snake
Host: hahahah…why a Snake?
JKS: the feeling of a soft pliable body, snakeskin prints etc…. I like~
Host: The photos from this morning’s shoot (showing Pink JKS photos on screen)…JKS exudes the vibes of a carnivorous man. Do you personally like to be a carnivorous man or a prettyboy?
JKS: i don’t really like the term “prettyboy” recently. you should ask if i’m like a carnivorous man or herbivorous man?
Host: haha… which type do you think you are?
JKS: I’m a herbivorous man in the day…. and carnivorous man at night!
Host: hahahahha…. then how about herbivorous woman? or canivorous woman?
JKS: Carnivorous woman?! hahaha
Host: JKS likes to tease photographer…. A basic requirement for carnivorous man is 6 pecs. So do you have 6 pecs?
JKS: (acts cool) I can easily train and have 6 pecs, but I don’t feel like doing it now. haha.
Host: The fact and myth about JKS’s height. JKS is actually 182cm tall!
JKS: The reaction of people who see me in real life is always: “Oh! You are really tall!” I’m not bothered about those rumours (about my height). (Says with a straight face) but I won’t give up wearing heeled shoes either.
JKS: Although I wear heeled shoes, I definitely don’t wear those height-increasing cushion inside my shoes.
Host: Hahahahahaha. An honest JKS is even more charming!
JKS: (Smile) (*the 2 seem to be sharing some private joke.)


Host: In the recent Celebrity Crush World Cup variety show, you picked Soo Ae as your ideal woman…
JKS: It was really hard to choose…
Host: What’s the reason you picked Soo Ae?
JKS: Because she belongs to the type of girl that I like…. very feminine, elegant and has poise. The type of girl who, when chatting with me alone, will listen to my views and what I have to say.
Host: Hope that JKS will find his ideal girl type soon… You are too young to understand but a grown woman like me…. (JKS looks at him with a “huh?” look) (Host lowers voice) has a lot of selfish desires…
JKS: (looks a bit shocked) hahaha. gave me a shock!
Host: hahahaha. Ok I will take away the phrase “like me” in my earlier sentence.
(*I think the host was trying to say that he fits JKS’s ideal type of woman.)


Host: Fact and myth no. 2 about JKS. Mature women like JKS~?
JKS: Actually I’ve never thought about this question at all.
Host: What I think is that… mature women like you because you have the enthusiasm of youth + a manly side….
JKS: I’ve never shown my manly side…. but I actually do have a manly side…
Host: For example…?
JKS: I mentioned it just now…. I’m a carnivorous man at night…
Host: hahahahahaha
JKS: For example, in the daytime I’m sitting here quietly like now, but at night I’ll be crawling here and there (JKS crawls over the host)…
Host: hahahahah… JKS is a man with many charms


Host: Which body part will you notice when you first see a girl?
JKS: The eyes. Especially the depth I feel when looking into the eyes…
Host: Then your ideal type should be me. I’m good….
JKS: *looked at host* *looked away* (pause) the more you say the more panicky I feel… hahaha
Host: Why do you notice the eyes?
JKS: I like girls who is individualistic with an unique charm…
Host: like your gaze in that photo (points at screen)…that’s the look that I the photographer also approve (photo of JKS in pink smeared lipstick and an intense look)
JKS: Yes I hope to have that look… I want to be that type of person

Host: What is JKS’s hot issue now?
JKS: Choosing my next project.
Host: Choosing good projects is something JKS is good at. Like Beethoven Virus, You’re Beautiful etc. I mistakenly thought your drama is called “You’re A Man!” hahahaha!
JKS: hahahahaha. Today is a laughing talkshow hahahaha. The title is really confusing. At first it’s “So you are a prettyboy” (*literal tranlation of YAB’s Korean title). Then some say it’s “Do you know it’s a prettyboy?”, “Is it a prettyboy?” and “Looks handsome!” etc. hahahaha.

Host: You got even more popular because of YAB.
JKS: I won the Netizen’s most popular award. It’s very meaningful to me especially at this time. I really wanted to win this because it’s voted by the public viewers.

Host: If you are not an actor what will you be?
JKS: Car salesman. I think my sales results will be very good! because I have good talking skills. maybe because I was a DJ, that helped. Also I interact with my friends and parents.
Host: I interact with my friends and family too! haha. ok you are suitable to be a car salesman. I can imagine!
JKS: You are a woman, you shouldn’t be like this!
JKS: It’s because I was a child star, so I have to be careful about what I say. I have to think before I speak.

Host: JKS’s dressing now is always matching and sensual. What do you look for in clothes?
JKS: Difficult question! Before any programme, the stylist will choose 8 to 10 outfits for me. I will look at how the fit is, the quality of fabric and how the clothes make me feel. Last time I like more complicated looks. Now I prefer simpler designs and do away with jewellery and accessories.
Host: Because I think you’ve grown up and are more mature…
JKS: I think so too. I feel like I’m slowly becoming an adult…
Host: Yes you are slowly getting older… hahahahahaha

Host: Another side of JKS. drawing eyeliner.
JKS: once during a photoshoot, I tried on eyeliner by chance. although eyeliner is usually used by women, it’s something new for guys and I quite like the look.
Host: You don’t care about how others look at you?
JKS: There’s nothing to be bothered about. I’m in a line where I should try different images and I like to experience different things and discover different styles for myself

Host: What is latest JKS’ trend?
JKS: I wish to be one who won’t be swayed by the latest trends. When people mentioned JKS I want them to think of all the different sides of me. I’m constantly searching for myself. I even think about how I will be like when I reach middle age…. my father has a big paunch now…
Host: So your father is different from the JKS now…
JKS: I want to maintain my look now…and people’s expectation of JKS.
JKS: I’m thinking of what to do for my next project. Everytime I choose a project I want to look for a role which suits me… my projects so far have one similarity… I read the script carefully from page one till the last page…

JKS: JKS’s expectation for 2010 is to be able to find himself more… If I climb too high too fast, I’ll be scared of falling. My hope for 2010… is health. Health is most important. Also I hope to meet more talented and outstanding people…
Host: Like me…
JKS: *looks at host* (laugh) Can’t stand you~
Host: hahahahahaha
JKS: O’Live TV!
