[video] Jang Keun Suk's new Weibo CF for Doota Duty Free - 2017-09-30

As we know, JKS has done a number of CF shoots for Doota Duty Free over the last several months. A few of the BTS videos have been published here. But he's a new CF, recorded for the Chinese market on weibo. Despite the tensions between Korea and China, JKS remains a splendid spokesperson for Korea to the Chinese market.

Not only does he remain very popular on the Mainland and Taiwan, his honesty and sincerity in what he's promoting always shines forth. Perhaps that's why he continues to be so popular in China at a time when many other Korean celebrities see their Chinese fan base shrinking. JKS remains as very special kind of who works hard to related to his audience and to understand them, regardless of who those people are or where they live or whatever language they speak. He's really quite unique.


[photos] Jang Keun Suk returns home from Japan - 2017-09-30

Following his activities in Japan this week, including recording the Music Fair show and both ZEPP performances, JKS returned to Korea. The photos are in no particular order and were taken at both Gimpo in Seoul and in Osaka.

On a side note: JKS rarely smiles or waves at his fans at Gimpo because of the mob situation there. Normally, he tries to rush through the airport with his his head down and a concentrated look on his face,  in an attempt to prevent any incidents in which an Eel might be injured. (He doesn't want to feel responsible for someone being injured because that person came to see him, nor does he want any person to be injured as a result of being there because of him.) So, it's particularly gratifying that upon his arrival at Gimpo, he broadly grinned behind his face mask and waved to his Korean fans.

[Instagram] Jang Keun Suk shows his serious side - 2017-09-30

JKS updated his IG account with a photo of him singing on the Music Fair show in Japan which airs on October 7th.

Notice his facial expression. It's so serious. He's really paying attention to the music. Although we all love the side of JKS that plays, teases, and delights us, when it comes to music he's really serious.

He craves being the best because being the best is part of his personality. So, he works hard to be the best at whatever he does. Sometimes he's underrated because he plays, teases, and jokes so much. But beneath that jovial exterior that eels want to see continuously is a person completely dedicated to perfection at whatever he does.

Because he does work so hard at that perfection behind the scenes where few, if any see him, he's often underrated as all "bluff"(i.e., all talk and no action).  But his dedication to perfection (which he's strived long and hard to attain) shows up in photos such as this one in which he's paying such close attention to the music.

That's the mark of true musician!

[photos] Jang Keun Suk's Osaka ZEPP Event - 2017-09-29

Jang Keun Suk's day in Osaka for the Voyage ZEPP show.

English translation: I woke up

He, then, made his way to the venue...

@treeJ_company오사카사카! 격렬한 환영 감사합니다!
English translation: Osakasaka!  Thank you for you enthusiastic welcome !

Just like at the Tokyo ZEPP show, JKS awarded gifts to some lucky eels.

A jacket that he wore during one of his concerts and apparently during the Voyage MV, although that scene was cut from the final video.

A ring of his that he put on the finger of the winner.

A drawing he made of a winning Eel.

@treeJ_company voyage 앨범 릴리즈 이벤트 앨범 구입자 중 당첨된 분들과 추억의 ZEPP에서 만드는 또 다른 추억! 어제, 오늘 만나지 못한 모두에게도 전해지기를 : ) 
English translation:Voyage album release event. Another memory made by lucky winners of the buyers at ZEPP of our memories! We hope it will be conveyed to everyone we couldn’t meet yesterday and today, too : )

A close up/cropped look at JKS

@treeJ_company 6살 우나기의 팬레터를 읽고 인사를 하는 장배우 모두, 잘 들리나요? 
English translation: Actor Jang read all of the fan letter from a 6-year old Eel and greeted his fans. Can you hear his speech?
(Note: JKS received the letter from the child at the train station in Osaka when he arrived. He was so impressed by the letter and the child''s affection for him that he wanted to read it to the audience.)

Either before or after the show, a lucky fan caught sight of JKS walking down a street in Osaka with Gun-sama.

[Instagram] Jang Keun Suk shows his charm again for Doota Duty Free - 2017-09-28

Doota Duty Free posted a new video shoot, featuring JKS for their fall and winter campaign. He remains still an excellent model, full of charisma and charm, for any product! Watch.


[video] Jang Keun Suk arrived in Osaka via the train - 2017-09-28

As noted in a previous post, JKS took the Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka following the Zepp show in Tokyo. He'll be performing the second Zepp show in Osaka on Thursday evening, Sept 28. While on the train, JKS ate one of the meals that can be purchased as he showed in his own IG photo update.

The following videos and photos are of his arrival in Osaka.

His final destination is...


[Photos] Jang Keun Suk's "Voyage" Zepp Show in Tokyo - 20197-09-28

The Zepp show last night in Tokyo lasted only an hour. The show was broken down into three segments, including a segment in which he played golf. But JKS did not sing. He said he preferred to wait until the Cri Show IV show where he'd have a band to accompany him. However, during one of the segments he offered winners of a special lottery gifts that he chose for the winners. The gifts consisted of one of his shirts from a previous show (apparently it was well laced with Jo Malone cologne); a pair of red high heeled boots; a picture he drew of the winner who came on stage for him to draw; and a number of Voyage postcards.


[instagram] Jang Keun Suk adds 3 photos to his IG - 2017-09-28

Yesterday, JKS held the first of his two Zepp shows. The first one was in Toyko; the second one, tonight on the 28th, he'll hold the in Osaka.

Note: This first instagram post was taken before the Zepp show in Tokyo.

_asia_prince_jksZepp Tokyo いますぐ🤜 
English translation: Now
Note: This photo was posted while at Zepp, as the show was about to get underway.

English translation: Apparently, there's no definitive definition of this word in Japanese, even though it appears to translate to "Ho".
Note: He's on the Shinkansen high speed train from Toyko to Osaka. It only takes an hour or two to make the journey. Since he used an emoji of the train, he may be saying that's the sound of the train or commenting on how fast it travels.

Per Tree J's Twitter feed, he shot the Music Fair program late last night, Sept 25. The Music Fair program on which he appears airs October 7 at 6 pm. It seems Music Fair is a regular Japanese TV program that airs on Saturdays at 6 pm.

On Sept. 23, JK returned to his IG account with a new photo he shot, proving he's still alive and well.😆

_asia_prince_jksFrom mom😍😍 

Mom's birthday supper for her son? Probably, since he's scheduled to return to Yokohama and Osaka next week for the Zepp Voyage concerts. (Also, if you look closely, you'll see JKS' reflection in the spoon at the bottom of the photo.)
