Eels and Jang Keun Suk, please always be strong by E. N.

Jang Keun Suk has become a very important person in my life since June of 2011 when I saw him for the first time in You Are Beautiful. Let me tell you something, my first encounter with him was bad, because I didn't like how he looked (clothes and make-up) in the drama, so I had a little battle with myself for accepting him and he won that battle. (Congratulations!) I am not an easy person to please, but when I heard his voice talking, heard him singing and saw his acting skills I was trapped in his charms like a spider in a web.

It was a bittersweet change in my life because he hit me so hard that now he is part of my family, he is present in all of my life like an alien from another planet. I laugh when he is happy, cry when I suspect he is crying or suffering and I am not alone in that. I am a member of the The Eels Family, ECI Club and Jangkeunsuk Forever blog and those girls and a few boys are the same as me, there are people from many countries of the world that admire him for his dedication and talents.

Don’t misunderstand me if I say I love him, yes I do, but more like a motherly love, but of course I find him handsome. I have a soft heart, but for me love means loyalty and understanding. I try to support him as much as possible, some call me a crazy ahjuma since I started to be an eel, but I don’t care. I know sometimes some eels are very demanding and say bad things to him and don’t permit him to have privacy. I hope they did that because they love him too much and don’t want him to make mistakes, or maybe they are new eels and young and don’t know how to cope with some issues that an artist has, or maybe they think he is a toy or a robot without feelings. Eels, don’t be mad at me for saying that because sometimes it is true, some eels are like that, but they are so far from what is true, he is a human like us and can do all the things that we do.

He is a sensitive person with a lot of love to share, he is a hard working person who fought for twenty years for be in the place that he is now and I know some people don’t recognize that, but others like me did. I am not an important person in this world and he doesn't even know about me, but I know other people who did it too.

So, Jang Keun Suk, please always be strong.

Try to smile more, maybe you didn't notice, but when you smile other people are happy. When you sing, dance, and act, people are happy. Don’t take the negative comments too hard, love yourself for what you are and if you make any mistakes or hurt someone's heart on the road, just forgive yourself because you are still young and only a human that is not perfect and can make mistakes all the time. Please when you suffer, don’t suffer alone; permit the people that love you to be with you in those dark moments that all of us have.

I hope these words help you a little to warm up your heart and soul, I hope too that eels will be more careful and understanding towards him. When you want to express something to him, he reads your comments and will be sad if you say words that hurt him, yes because his heart is not made of steel.

I love you, Jang Keun Suk and hope you have the success and inner peace that you deserve. Fighting.

By E.N. with the collaboration of L.Y. and N.L.

[Article & Video] TV Station Mega Interview JKS Chile

TEF Note: A big thank you to the team at JKS Chile for allowing us to repost their wonderful news.  Another shining example of Jang Keun Suk's worldwide reach.  Zikzin eels!

Reposted from:

Jang Keun Suk Chile - Eels Sisters in Special K-pop Culture
Habemus Article

After much prodding and working to promote our Jang Keun Suk, we finally had success in having an official interview about our Fan Club, we are also together with another fanclub of idols in the website of Special K-pop Culture from Mega. We were invited to Mega facilities where the interview took place.

The interview was at 15 hrs, but we gather before (at 13 hrs), on a subway station called Irrarazabal near of TV Station, to talk about what we're going to say in the interview and share more about JKS, thus we spend the time feeling a little nervous before the interview start.

After talking, we went to the TV Station that day we had nearly 40º degrees of heat.

Once there, the air conditioned room in which we were allowed to spend the heat. We start to speak loudly, making a lot of noise and laughing a lot. That caused the person behind the counter said to us "Sorry, can you decrease the volume". That was a little hard for us because we were too excited and nervous.

After a few minutes the journalist came to look for us and walked to the place in which the interview will be held. A small but nice interior yard, in which we started to place the things we brought that day: Pictures, Posters, Magazines, CDs, DVDs, Juices, etc. Everything that we had of Jang Keun Suk it was exposed that day, it looked very beautiful.

All the Eels Sisters sat down and showed everything we had of JKS, and the one who is writing this note, stayed at the back filming the backstage and taking photos.

They started to film all the stuff that we had of JKS, then we put them neatly on the floor so that they could be appreciated better.

The first attack of nerves... (also who also writes) .. it was a big laugh. We all started to laugh ( hahahaha ) in a contagious way, because all the nerves we had, it was our first time in front of a television camera and the first recordings went wrong .... we started to relax after a few minutes and started to talk more naturally.

What can you expect to relate and speak the feelings that an eel has for Jang Keun Suk, A LOT OF THINGS, as the interview went by each one of us began to open their hearts and really talk like a true eel, all the interventions made, reflected on us that day and we expected anxiously representing them all.

An interview over one hour was reduced to 7 minutes, leaving many things in the inkpot. However, the editing demonstrates our passion and admiration for this great man, I really left with the feeling of a lot of happiness to see the images shown and the videos as well.

The journalist showed a lot of interest and she even searched the videos of our Prince in our official youtube channel.. ... It might be that we will have a new eel?

Here is the video of our interview (with eng-subs) .... WE ARE Jang Keun Suk Chile Jyo ~~ ZikZin

[TEF Note: You can check this link if the video above doesn't play. :)]

On behalf of Team JKS Chile ... Again a lot of thanks to each and every one of the members of this beautiful Fan Club, for believing in us and supporting each of our follies ... Proud of being EELS.

The show, which lasted for three and a half hours, looked over Jang Keun Suk′s career, from when he was a child actor to his feats as a full-fledged adult actor now, and had him talk in a talk session. He also performed OST tracks from his pieces and gave out roses in person to the fans at the scene.

Jang Keun Suk said, "It was a precious time in which I could become more close with fans in a private event. I′ve charged through my 20 year career, but this time I was able to look back on my road thanks to those who′ve congratulated me for my 20th anniversary, so I′m very thankful."

He added, "Since we have more time ahead of us, I hope to continue on for the next 20 years together with those who have been with me for the past 20 years. I′ll continue to charge forth, so I hope you look on with kindness."

음원 은 아티스트 의 소중한 자산 입니다 장어 라면 당연히 듣고 싶겠지 만, 유투브 같은 공공 장소 에 올리게 되면 장어 가 아닌 장사꾼 들 에게 악용 당할 소지 가 있습니다 그럼 BB 가 웁니다 라디오 에서 녹음 하신 분 은 개인 소장, 궁금한 분 은 친구 에게 달라고 하세요:)
Sound source is an important property of the artist, but of course, it is tempting to hear
but it may be exploited if trader is not an eel and raised to a public place, such as YouTube. So BB radio recording those who have it keep in private collection, please ask a friend if you are curious :)

앞으로 풀버전 PV 공개 및 각국에서의 프로모션들 ㅡ 2/20 앨범 발매와 함께 아이튠즈에서도 구입가능하니 많은 기대 부탁드립니다!! ㅡ
Future release of the full version PV promotion from all overㅡ 2/20 on iTunes the much anticipated album can be purchased!! ㅡ

아! 일본의 라디오에는 이미 공개되었으니 저도 음악 신청 메일을 보내볼까요? ㅡ 라디오에서 다시 들을 수 있을지도!
Oh! Japanese radio since it's already public now shall I also send an e-mail music application/request? It may be heard on the radio again!

24일 라디오에서는 ㅡ TOKYO FM「シナプス」(13:00-16:00) Feel the beat ㅡ bayfm「ON8」(20:00-21:30) What is your name? ㅡ ON8에는 기쁜 레포트도!
24th on the radioㅡTOKYO FM "シナプス"(synapse) (13:00-16:00) Feel the beat ㅡ bayfm "ON8" (20:00-21:30) What is your name? ㅡ ON8 happy report!

From the report (translation cr: megdancarina):

And today's Super Special Request Hour know what!...

In this ON8 today, as aired for the first time in the universe,

TEAM Hの『What is your name(Japanese ver.)』が、3回もかかりました!
TEAM H's "What is your name (Japanese ver.)" was played 3 times!!

Because, because...after we played it first time, All over Japan Eels (Jang Keun Suk Fan folks) sent huge numbers of "Replay Request" !

I as well as ON8 Staffs were really surprised!

Moreover, we have read emails from them and found out; when the music was on-aired, Jang Keun Suk-san's Dinner show was going on. The listeners of ON8 were the one who could not win Dinner Show competition.

I, Sana (Female DJ's name) felt united with those Japan Eels today.

After ON8, I have read the rest of emails that I could not finish during the program.

Look, All Japan Eels,

I appreciate really really your heart-warming emails for us.

Together, I want to scream again in one voice,
"What is your name(Japanese ver.)!! "
