[Announcement] Jang Keun Suk's 2017 Charity Birthday Memorial Exhibition - 2017-07-30

In a scant few days, Jang Keun Suk's nearly two-month long Birthday Carnival will begin. Collecte de Zikzin is already beginning to get ready for it. (As an aside, this shop is nicknamed JKS' Hideout. Kkkk) Expect to see lots of Eels' artwork being posted online announcing JKS' Birthday Carnival and wishing him Happy Birthday.

But the biggest part of the celebration culminates in Seoul for the annual Charity Birthday Memorial Exhibition in which Eels from all over the world send in their artwork, featuring Jang Keun Suk, for him personally to judge. While wandering through the exhibition, if he particularly likes a piece of art - painting, illustration, or photo - he will sign it. All artwork except the photos will be raffled off as prizes to lucky attendees.  Meanwhile, Eel artists who participated in the exhibition will anxiously wait and hope to see if their art garnered JKS' praise and signature.

As in previous years, JKS' Korean Fan Club, Cri-J, has created and published a beautiful poster announcing the exhibition. The exhibition is open to the public for the only two days, on 9/2 and 9/3, after which it closes. Tickets are sold on a first come, first serve basis...and Eels begin lining up in the wee hours of the morning to be ready when the doors open. This year the exhibition will be held at the Blue Square Gallery, in the vicinity of the Seoul Fan Meeting venue.

Some time after the exhibition ends, Cri-J usually posts a video and several still shots of JKS walking through the exhibition, autographing some of the photos, and admiring various other pieces of art.



  1. Como eu gostaria de estar lá, na outra encarnação quero nascer coreana.

  2. Your birthday carnival starts! I am looking forward to it! Although I am likely to be able to go to Seoul, I am sorry for fan meeting, but I am praying that I will succeed successfully as I can not go! Good luck with your everyone


Thank you for sharing with us, Cri!
