Jang Keun Suk Japan Official Fan Club started 5 years ago. To celebrate the 5th anniversary, JKS held his first official fan meeting ‘Jang Keun Suk VALENTINE FANCLUB EVENT’ in Japan.

For 2 days, February 13th and 14th, he spent a heart-warming time with fans in Tokyo full of St. Valentine’s Day atmosphere.

Jang Keun Suk reached an important milestone, 5th anniversary for his Japan Official Fan Club. He’s held a lot of concerts or events in Japan so far, but surprisingly, it was his first official fan meeting in Japan. The venue, Tokyo International Forum Hall A was full of fans who had waited for the day to come. As the event title ‘GIFT’ shows, the fan meeting became a memorable event given from him to fans who keep supporting him for a long time.

In this event, 7 missions related to initials of ‘JKS GIFT’ were given to him and he had to complete them such as question time using a polygraph test, check for his personal items, impromptu dancing seeing his past videos, and live response to requests given by fans like “show us your bossy style of love confession at the camera!” “Show us your best smile!” and so on. Like this, this exclusive event was totally different from his concerts.

He even walked down from the stage to get closer to fans, and walked around the venue holding a selca bar. Such an unexpected event made the audience so happy. When the MC announced that he would walk around on the second floor as well as on the first floor, the venue was covered by the cheers of the audience. He really walked all over the venue. To respond his heart, all the audience kept the promises as the MC asked beforehand. No one left from their seat and tried to touch him. That proved their solid bond between JKS and fans (eels).

Usually JKS expresses his ideas from the planning stage actively, and joins the production part of each stage, but this time the detail was not revealed to him in advance. He looked a bit confused to know each mission he had to complete, but he seemed to have fun with fans from the bottom of his heart. When he looked back memories with fans over 5 years and saw message videos by fans, he seemed lost for words because he was very impressed with them.

Besides, there were surprise events that the audience held a message banner for 2 days. The event was full of love to reconfirm their special bond in the past and in the future. It was really suitable to be held on St. Valentine’s Day.

In addition, MV of a lead song ‘Hidamari (sunshine)’ included in his 3rd album released on February 25th was released during the event for the first time. And during the mini concert segment, he sang some songs such as ‘Always close to you’ ‘Save me’ ‘Turn off’ ‘Beautiful Change’ and so on. That made us to look forward upcoming CRI SHOW3 that starts in March from Oksaka.

And this event was confirmed to be released as DVD. The detail will be out on the official website later.

*Notice: 5 years mean the number of years that Frau International started to run his Japan Official Fan Club.

With reports saying that Jang Keun Suk paid over 10 billion won in penalty tax to the National Tax Service, Jang Keun Suk′s agency released an official statement.

On January 14, Jang keun suk′s agency, Tree J Company released an official statement, saying, "The reports about tax evasion and tax investigations continue to come out, but we want to correctly state that as previously reported, it is not a special tax investigation regarding Jang keun suk′s foreign income tax, but rather a periodic tax investigation for Jang keun suk′s agency, Tree J Company."

"The company sincerely participated in the investigation, and in the investigation process of the involved authorities, an error, made by the agency′s accounting firm, was found and the tax return was amended and a penalty payment was paid."

"Tree J Company adjusted to the substantive and procedural parts and clearly carried out the duty to pay, and the involved authorities acknowledged that it wasn′t done on purpose and did not press charges, meaning that no examination of the prosecution took place."

"Through the process of many reports, several assumed that Jang Keun Suk was under the accusation of tax evasion and paid an enormous amount in penalty fee, and as that was reported as the truth, the public accepted it as the truth, causing a huge damage to the actor′s image," said Tree J Company. "Regarding this, we feel a deep sense of regret towards him."

"This issue was created due to an error made by the company′s accounting firm and completely unrelated with Jang Keun Suk. The tax report has been corrected and the penalty was paid. We′d like to state once more that Jang Keun Suk has diligently paid his taxes."

"With this issue, we will be more careful to make sure that not even a little error occurs in our financial issues," stated Tree J Company. "We sincerely express our apologies to Jang Keun Suk, who is in our company, as well as to the fans and the public. We will make sure that Jang Keun Suk′s image will not be tarnished due to the company′s mistake."

In an ending note, the company wrote, "We will work harder to show a better image. We want to apologize to our actor once more. We hope that there will be no more articles of speculation that will tarnish Jang Keun Suk′s name."
