Jang Keun Suk, who played Dokgo MaTe who is handsome and mysterious enough to be the national’s treasure in Korean drama ‘Beautiful Man (Bel Ami)’, made a surprise visit to TSUTAYA shop Nagoya station west branch in Nagoya to celebrate the DVD release on October 3rd.

Although there was no previous announcement and even it was the daytime on weekdays, more than 300 fans gathered there. The shop had to restrict the number of people who could enter the shop. Fans who couldn’t enter the shop were waiting outside. It is said that the number of visitors is 10 times as many as usual. Jang Keun Suk said, “I heard a special T-card designed with my photo was out of stock. That’s why I came here.” JKS design T-card was just started to be issued on October 1st, but because his music unit TEAM H concert was held in Nippon Gaishi Hall on October 1st and 2nd, it seemed many rushed to TSUTAYA to get the card.

Jang Keun Suk suddenly appeared the cash register counter and gave a special ‘Beautiful Man’ plastic bag and T-card to some lucky fans directly.

After that, he moved to the shelves that displayed ‘Beautiful Man’ DVD for rent, and left his autographs on the panel, poster and so on. Even it was a short time, he enjoyed interacting with fans.

‘Beautiful Man (Bel Ami)’ is now available for rent at TSUTAYA shops. The DVD and BluRay included an application coupon for JKS’ autograph session will be sold on October 17th.

TEAM H, a music unit formed by Jang Keun Suk and his friend music producer BigBrother, has started their nationwide arena tour ‘TEAM H PARTY ~Raining on the dance floor~’ at Nippon Gaishi Hall in Nagoya (Oct 1st and 2nd). TEAM H has 8 stages in 4 cities across the country.

This is their long-awaited nationwide tour with their 3rd album ‘Driving to the highway’ that was released in July after 1 year and 4 months of their previous one. The main stage was set in the center of the venue, with runways in four directions. That helped them to feel close to all the audience. Numerous lights and lasers illuminated the stage and the audience from various angles. Creating such a beautiful atmosphere, BigBrother started DJing. As soon as BB’s DJing started, everyone started jumping all together. The concert venue transformed into a dance floor in a moment.

As the opening tunes, they performed nonstop ‘OPEN THE DOOR’ and ‘Do it on the speaker’ from their new album ‘Driving to the highway’. In the middle of 2nd song (‘Do it on the speaker’), when JKS appeared in the fog on the stage, that reached climax of the audience. To respond JKS’ call “Nagoya, are you ready~!?”, the audience who had been looking forward to seeing him in Nagoya shouted back for him. Then, TEAM H performed their popular songs such as ‘I just wanna have fun’ and ‘What is your name?’ from their previous album nonstop .

In the middle of their show, a camera followed Jang Keun Suk to the back stage. He went there for a costume change. That was shown on big screens in the venue. Then, a talk session started in his back stage room. He introduced a game called ‘fool game’ that he’s been into recently and played the game with his staff. The lost staff was forced to drink a whole glass of champagne without interruption. That funny event made the audience laugh a lot. After that, he picked up some fans from the audience and brought them on the stage to perform with TEAM H.

Throughout their performance, JKS ran on the stage freely. He used a water gun to get close to the audience. There were some impressive stage settings such as a rotating and upward stage to entertain the audience. But, I can say the best part of their stage was when they performed ‘Raining on the dance floor’. Surrounded by fountains, Jang Keun Suk got soaked and danced like crazy. It was perfect like the powerful music video on stage. Everyone took in the beautiful and fantastic scene.

Showing such a gorgeous stage, on the other hand, TEAM H sang ‘Driving to the highway’ with a smoochy acoustic guitar. At the same time, they choreographed how to pose the hook and everyone did it all together. That brought a sense of unity to the venue. As the concert reached a final phase, their performance gained the strength. Keun Suk spoke to the audience, “I could die happy right now! Don’t you agree with that?”

JKS said that he would like to show his real self as much as possible in his solo concert last year. This TEAM H stage showed how much he himself enjoyed performing on the stage. Through the concert, they performed 24 songs. Their powerful stage was full of enthusiasm to the end.

TEAM H PARTY singing and dancing with fans has just begun. This month they have another stage in Fukuoka (Oct 11th and 12th), and in November they have in Saitama and Osaka.

tenshi_akuma’s note: The game called ‘fool [Pabo in Korean] game’ is very complicated. It’s not so easy to play. While playing, participants tap a rhythm on their lap, and clap hands. The player showed a certain number (from 1 to 5) with the fingers of his/her hand. But at the same time, the player has to say the different number in word. For example, when the player showed 3 with the finger, he/she has to say a different number such as 1, 2, 4 or 5. If the player says 3 in word, he/she loses the game. Then, another player has to follow the previous player’s number in word and showed the number with the fingers. For example, if the previous player showed 5 with the fingers and said 4 in word, the next player showed 4 with the numbers and said a different number (1, 2, 3 or 5) in word.

[Jang Keun Suk Holds Special Birthday Event]

Hello Pretty EeLs

Asia’s Prince” Jang Keun Suk, who’s turning 27 on August 4, will be celebrating his special day in a rather different way.

On August 2-3, a special two-day event which includes various attractions and activities such as a photo exhibit, a live open broadcast of Jang Keun Suk’s podcast, and a donation drive will be held at the Art Hall in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul to celebrate the upcoming birthday of the actor on August 4. This event will be the first time in six months that Jang keun Suk will be meeting his fans officially after his fan meeting last February.

While most fans usually send their love and greetings for the birthday of their favortie artists through billboards and advertisements, Jang Keun Suk’s fanclub, Cri-J, thought of putting up a photo exhibit like the previously held “2013 Jang keun Suk Birthday Photo Exhibit,” wherein photos of the actor that were personally taken by his fans will be exhibited, highlighting the love of the fans for the actor. The total profits from the photo exhibit last year that amounted to 10 million won were donated to charitable institutions and this year, Jang Keun Suk’s fans are expected to show once again that they are a model for the matured fans who have a culture of giving.

Jang Keun Suk himself will also hold a special open broadcast of his podcast, “Zikzin Radio,” and will take advantage of the chance to get closer to his fans. Zikzin Radio started in October last year and has ranked number one in the Arts Category of the Japan podcast chart.

This will be the second open broadcast of the show following the first open broadcast held in Beijing, China. Through Zikzin Radio, Jang Keun Suk will be able to hold ordinary, normal talks with his fans and have an animated conversation with them. Fans are highly anticipating this personal talk time with Jang Keun Suk which is expected to expand broadcast all throughout Asia soon.

“Jang Keun Suk is always very thankful whenever fans prepare a lot for his birthday every year. Also, it has been a while since he last stood in front of his fans after the previous fan meeting so as expected, his fans’ anticipation has risen and we are continuously fired up when it comes to the preparations,” said a representative from Jang Keun Suk’s agency.
