[Translated Article] Asia’s ‘Pretty Man’, Jang Keun Suk's Never Ending Story

Original Source: Korean Economy / 2014. 02. 17. 8:33pm)
Translation Korean to English: SungYee, Lu Lee (The Eels Family)
Additional Translation: rainygirl06 (The Eels Family)
Editing: thenatcat, Lu Lee (The Eels Family)

TEF Note:  For most proper names and titles, we included the hangul as well, particularly when the English version of the title was not a direct translation. Also, the photos were re-arranged since in the original article they were not placed with the corresponding text.

'Neo Hallyu', ‘Asia’s Star’, ‘Asia Prince’ etc.. are some of the countless qualifiers made as he became the dynamic Hallyu star Jang Keun Suk.

Although he is not Japanese, his debut single as a foreign artist remarkably topped the Oricon Daily Chart on its release day, breaking a 30 year record for both Japanese and foreign male solo artists, which was set by Japanese singer Masahiko Kondō [近藤 真彦] in December of 1980.

In Korea, he is only known as an actor even though he is equally talented as other singers. Nonetheless, in 2011, Jang Keun Suk changed the history of Japan’s Oricon Chart with the debut of his single “Let Me Cry.”

Traversing the world, Jang Keun Suk gave many concerts. In 2010, the ‘Asia Tour’ and the ‘Japan Nationwide Tour.’ In 2011, ‘Asia Tour ~ Cri-Show,’ ‘Arena Tour,’ ‘Cri-Show at Tokyo Dome’ and the ‘Cri Show 2.’ In 2013, ‘Jang Keun Suk Dinner Show.’

In addition to ballad songs, he has expanded into DJ parties, as well as independent productions. With his musician friend, Big Brother, and their produced Team H, he staged exciting 3 hour electronic performances. On August 2013, in celebration of his birthday, he produced in Osaka, Japan, a large scale expo (ZIKZIN FESTIVAL) showcasing booths centered on himself.

Bouncing ideas never presented before, Jang Keun Suk is creating a new culture and, without doubt, demonstrating his true artistic character. Such traits endlessly fascinate Jang Keun Suk’s Asia fans.

Traveling back and forth between Korea and Asia, Jang Keun Suk is promoting his dazzling activities as a Hallyu star. What greater charisma would this man, who is shaping a new Hallyu culture in our times, still hide? Let’s uncover Jang Keun Suk’s story since his childhood to the time he became ‘Asia Prince.’
