Jang Keun Suk, joined the social service training center without basic military training (comprehensive)

It was the entrance scene where fans and stars were quiet.

On January 16, Jang Keun Suk joined the social service training center in Boeun Gun, Chungbuk. In the past, he was undergone a fourth grade military service for "Bipolar Disorder" in a physical examination by the Military Manpower Administration.

According to the law, Jang Keun Suk received basic education (literacy training) at the social service training center instead of basic military training. Therefore, we will leave the social service training center for 4 days and 5 nights for basic social literacy education.

The entrance ceremony was held until 1 pm, but the scene started to get crowded with fans to watch Jang Keun Suk from early in the morning. It has a lot of fans both at home and abroad, so fans from China, Japan, Hong Kong and many other countries gathered together. Though dozens of fans were present, he cheered his quiet enlistment while keeping his horse.

At 12:54 pm, the black car with Jang Keun Suk arrived at the training center. Jang Keun Suk passed through the front door without getting off the car, because he was conscious of the controversy over the enlistment. I did not give my opinion as much as my agency said that it was going to be quietly closed.

Jang Keun Suk's entrance to the day was a matter of ultimate concern. There are various issues ahead of his military enlistment. There is still a gap between public opinion and social service due to the 4th grade military service. Even three days before enlistment, the fact that it was a 'no reader' was reexamined.

Issues such as bipolar disorder and unattended readers demonstrate high interest in Jang Keun Suk's enlistment. Some of the male entertainers who have avoided active duty by appealing to various diseases after active activity have been announcing the topic every day, and criticism is unremarkable. Jang Keun Suk, however, did not disclose his position, although he was interested in revealing his thoughts on the controversy in the field.

Jang Keun Suk, who made his debut as a child actor in 1993, has appeared in dramas such as 'Hwang Jin Yi', 'Beethoven Virus', 'Handsome', and 'Daebak'. Recently, I finished the last work before the military service 'Switch - change the world'. The best time to convene is July 2020.


[Official General] Military Manpower Administration "Jang Keun Suk Today (16th) Nonsan Admission NO → Social Service Training Center Admission"

Jang Keun Suk, 31 years, an actor, is joining the social service training center rather than entering the training camp on the 16th.

Jang Keun Suk's agency said, "Jang Keun Suk is enlisted today," and "The time and place are all closed."

On April 16, an official of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Maritime Affairs said, "If the person receives an alternative service test due to a psychiatric illness, he will be admitted to the social service training center, Jang Keun Suk, who received the grade 4 military service due to 'Bipolar Disorder', said that he will only receive basic education on basic social services for 4 days and 5 nights at the social service training center located in Boeun, Chungbuk.

After receiving basic education in the social service training center, Jang Keun Suk reports his work at the assigned work place and starts the substitute service as a social worker.

Jang Keun Suk, the agency's agent, said, "Jang Keun Suk received a 4th grade military service for the reason of bipolar disorder in the physical examination of the Military Manpower Administration. I plan to have an alternative service."

According to his agency, "Jang Keun Suk was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder at a university hospital in 2011 and has been re-examined in all rehabilitation tests conducted since 2011. In this process, there was no request for actor enrollment delayed, I have faithfully fulfilled my request."

The agency said, "Jang Keun Suk grew up with fans attention and is in love, so even if it's a very personal matter, it's the responsibility of the public to make it clear. I thought," he explained.

Jang Keun Suk also reported his feelings of enlistment through his fan cafe. He said, "It's been a long time since I thought it would be a good idea to greet the eels first (Jang Keun Suk) and say hello. I want to use my 2 years time from now on as a meaningful time in my life. I made my debut as a child and have never taken a break in 27 years, I've never taken the time, I'm taking a break, I love it, and if I do, I die."

Meanwhile, Jang Keun Suk is scheduled to convene on July 15, 2020.

Switch Change the World


Neatly Sketched & Strong Lead Cast

Clearly delineated, the good and evil players in the drama raced through a scintillating finish with equal power and motivations. I liked that the number of participating cast does not fluctuate, and how each of their roles is not wasted up to the last sprint of the culminating frames.

Carrying the weight of the story, Jang Geun Suk, who played dual roles as a prosecutor and con artist, handled his personas with poise and commitment. The focus he limned in switching his characters, who are even switching inside the story itself, deserves an applause. Facing a superb villain in Jung Woong In made their showdowns exciting, owing to how clever the characters which they played.

Having two amazing male leads, Han Ye Ri synthesized well by making sure her character keep its bearing by not allowing the dominating presence of the battling male leads swallow her position in the story. She has proven that kisses and romance do not equate to on-screen chemistry for the main pairing in the chronicle.

The supporting cast, who are composed of barely newcomer actors, successfully sold themselves for possible drama offers in the future. They managed to sustain a balanced exposure making them scene-stealer in their own ways.

Precise Conflict & Defined Narrative

Switch Change The World made sure that the initial big picture presented get a gratifying closure in the end. It meandered on exciting curves, but maintained a graspable logic to its viewers.

The usual insertion of side conflicts was upgraded in a storytelling manner, which impelled the gripping hook of the plot. Playing the resolution simple yet exciting was one of the key points why the series excited followers. The versatile writing satiated the predictable trajectory by leading the viewers to enjoy the outmaneuvering game played by the heroes and villains.

The drama relied on the pretext of the story, which it was trying to impart, refusing to ride on the drawing factor of adding romance to its plot. By prioritizing on the message of the narrative, the audience did not even have the urge to root for a love story, simply because we were piqued on how to end everything for the villain once and for all.

Switch Change The World


Plot Summary

Set to return to his Seoul office, Prosecutor Baek Jun Soo meets an accident on his way unfortunately, which was orchestrated by a shady group. The prosecutor falls unconscious, so his team mates finds and orders con artist (but lookalike) Sa Do Chan to pose for him to complete an important meeting related to the drug dealers they are investigating. The accident unfortunately hit Jun Soo hard, so Do Chan’s acting is to carry on in order to uncover the man behind the illegal drug dealing. When Do Chan realizes that the case actually involves the man he has also been looking for all these years, he agrees to prolong as a substitute to the ailing prosecutor. He embarks on an arduous outwitting game with a villain, who is always a step ahead of them.


Time whizzes enjoyably in the swift paced story of Sa Do Chan. The mood, the characters, and even the music set up an engrossing legal-crime drama, powered by caper activities and clever showdown between the heroes and the villains. It maintained its upbeat tone and clever narration, while unraveling the back stories.

Prioritizing the flow of the story by utilizing its well-conceived cast makes up the visible fillers awkwardly inserted once-in-a-while into the narration.

Throughout, Switch Change The World has never played favorites on the outsmarting game between the heroes and villains. The turning of tables and mind tricks powers the engaging core of the narrative.

If you like heist stories, you would most certainly be delighted to join Team Switch in their adventure.

Jang Keun Suk held two Fan Meetings in Seoul for DOOTA Duty Free which were specifically created specifically for Japanese Eels.

The following photos, videos and news reports are from those two Fan Meetings, including photos with the MC Kim Tae Hee, a special audience winner, and a female who was invited by a friend of hers and whose photo was taken with JKS.

Tree J Twitter:
We’re under the same sky..
As we have this magical word,
we’re always together

This text is what JKS told the audience:

- JKS said: I don’t know exactly when I will be enlisted. I wanna make good memories (meaning having a good time with fans) before joining the army. I’ve also prepared for something you can enjoy while I’m in the army, so please look forward to it.

- For the past 3 months l lived as Baek Joon Soo and Sa Do Chan, losing myself, JKS. Now the drama is over, so I’m doing what I wanted to do, one by one, in order to regain myself.

- Things I wanted to do are.... ① traveling with my family ② getting my hair dyed blond which I always do in summer... I did it a little early this year, though. ③ getting back to be real JKS, “so JKS” can be in front of my eels

- After I finished Switch, I traveled around in Gangwon Province with my parents for a week. I enjoyed golfing, too.

- After coming home from traveling in Gangwon Province, I have been having meetings about Team H’s new album with staff members from Japan!

- I got my hairstyle changed 4 days ago and had been trying hard to hide it. But before the fan meeting started today, I posted a photo with my new hair style to the Instagram, thinking that I should show it to everyone. When I went out, I wore a hat to hide my hair and waited to show it to everyone. here first.

 - This year I had a great job at the Korea Olympics and I also enjoyed meeting with everyone at the February show. The air of the now that is making the eel and jks like today back to the actor after a long time, I'm not beautiful? Last one still doesn't suit you....

- Joining the army is a mandatory duty for Korean men, so I’m always ready to be enlisted. But I haven’t received a call-up notice yet.... so I don’t know yet when exactly l will be enlisted.

- The title of today’s fan meeting says “The last fan meeting” but JKS said “last” means “the last fan meeting with Doota Duty Free,” so if I renew the contract with Doota, I may have more fan meetings.....

The special winner, meeting JKS in person for the first time.  She was so excited she feared she hugged JKS too tightly. She added that she never, ever thought she'd be this close to JKS.

JKS with MC Kim Tea Hee:

And with a friend of a VIP guest:

During the Fan Meeting, JKS received a special award - an appreciation plaque - from the Korea Tourism Organization for his efforts to promote tourism, especially among Japanese, to Korean and especially Gangwon-do. Jang Geun Suk said, "This award is not the award I received, but the award that fans made." KTO said he was given this plaque for his contribution to the promotion of international friendship as well as the attraction of foreign tourists. In addition, he did not forget to say hello to the Korea Tourism Festival Tokyo event on June 12th.

Besides talking and singing, JKS introduced PD Nam Tea Jin, who directed Switch. Eels are already hoping for a Switch 2. Nevertheless, his military service awaits him.

...TE: What is season 2? G: I also want a switch drama, a new American drama license (planned? ) remake (? ) appointments. I want to be in the cast too: wow: No, I wish I had.

For the entire lyrics in English:
Sail away
Sail away
With you
With you
 Gonna stay
With you
 On an ice covered hill
And don't never come down

These people
They don't know
How it feels
How it feels
With you

 I look away
I see sadness
I see pain
But with you
I see hope

I see shame disappear

These people
They don't know
How it feels
How it feels
With you
With you

Sail away
 Sail away
With you
With you
Gonna stay
With you
On an ice covered hill
And don't ever look back

I don't ever look back
