[Charity] Jang Keun Suk Joins Children's Cerebral Palsy Charity Campaign - 2018-03-30

Actor Jang Geun-suk said, "I have heard that many children in the world have been suffering from cerebral palsy and spastic paralysis. They have not received active treatment due to difficult family conditions and are not growing well." "I was delighted to participate as one of the Supporters in the Meditox Team 2022 campaign."~Mediapana


Jang Keun Suk was asked to support Meditox’s global social contribution campaign for the treatment of Parkinson's anomalies in children with cerebral palsy, one of the diseases that can be treated with botulinum toxin. Team 2022, the name of the campaign, will work to support the treatment of acute malformations caused by muscle rigidity in children with cerebral palsy all over the world.

Currently, "there are no treatments available to cure acute anomalies in children with cerebral palsy. However, botulinum toxin helps to relax the muscles and helps in the rehabilitation of normal walking.

"Meditox has signed a bilateral treaty with Mongolia National Hospital in February for the treatment of children with cerebral palsy in Mongolia and will continue to support botulinum toxin. Mongolia will continue to increase the number of sponsored countries such as Korea, Vietnam and Kyrgyzstan.

In addition, Meditox has been interested in the treatment of domestic maladjustment in domestic and overseas children, so he chooses actor Jang Geun-suk as the first supporter of the team 2022 campaign." ~ HeraldKPOP

{SWITCH - Article] Jang Keun Suk Picks Han Ye Ri as Favorite - 3018-03-29








Jang Geun Suk Picks His Most Compatible Co-Star


Jang Geun Suk started his career as a child model and has since worked with many popular actresses. Some of his co-stars include YoonA, Park Shin Hye, IU, Moon Geun Young, and more.

During the press conference for the drama he was asked which actress he is most compatible with. The actor chose his “Switch” co-star Han Ye Ri and stated, “Out of all the actresses I worked with so far, I clicked with her the best.”

Jang Geun Suk added, “Sa Do Chan is like a rubber ball, so if we’re not careful, he could seem like a character that you can’t take very seriously. It’s the actors’ job to make that into a reality, but when I’m filming with Han Ye Ri, I feel a sense of security. When I go a different path or improvise, she reacts right away. Ever since rehearsal, we have been a good team. She’s a reliable actress.”




In response, Han Ye Ri said, “I, too, think it is always fun while filming. I felt like I was having the pleasure of creating something while working. I had good chemistry with Jang Geun Suk and the director.”

“Switch” is about Sa Do Chan, a conman who ends up becoming a prosecutor who uses his unique set of skills to catch criminals. Han Ye Ri plays the independent and passionate prosecutor Oh Ha Ra. The first episode will air on March 28 at 10 p.m. KST. You can watch it on Viki!

[SWITCH - Article] Jang Keun Suk Switch Press Conference Report on Yonhap News English -2018-03-29

Yonhap News, which is akin to Reuters in its international audience, published a story about Switch in its English Edition.


'Switch' promises to gratify by featuring bad guy achieving justice

2018/03/28 14:29
By Woo Jae-yeon

SEOUL, March 28 (Yonhap) -- More often than not, petty con artists are locked up in jail while big ones enjoy comfortable lives in penthouses. Sadly enough, many Koreans often realize that it is hard to catch outrageously bad crooks by way of the law.

The new TV series "Switch - Change the World" on SBS is designed to give TV viewers thrilling satisfaction that is hard to get in real life by establishing justice with the help of a bad guy who acts as the look-alike of a good one.

The forthcoming drama will show an interesting irony in how the crook Sa Do-chan, the spitting image of a prosecutor named Paik Jun-su who falls unconscious following a premeditated car accident, does a better job of holding bad guys accountable than the real prosecutor.

"The irony of the world we live in is that a fake pretends to be a real one and lives a better life," director Nam Tae-jin said during a press conference at the SBS headquarters in Seoul on Wednesday.
By bringing the "paradoxical reality" onto the screen, Nam said, "I want to give viewers a thrilling and gratifying experience."

Actor and singer Jang Keun-suk is playing the double role of Sa and Paik in the Wednesday-Thursday drama, which will be his first TV series in two years since "The Royal Gambler" on the same network.

During the media event, the actor said the drama will likely be his last work before starting his mandatory military service. All able-bodied Korean men should serve in the military for about two years. Details of Jang's enrollment have yet to be determined.

That said, Jang has tried to show his best performance yet in the show.

"I feel a heavy responsibility for the series ... Doing the double role is a new challenge for me. I will show my best performance, so that people can naturally associate me with the two characters," he said.

The actor enjoys huge popularity across Asia. In the lobby of the network, a few hundred fans -- Koreans and foreigners alike -- lined up to see the star. The lobby was lined with flower wreathes and presents from fans decorated with supporting messages.

He didn't forget to offer his fans special thanks for their unwavering support and love.

"I feel sorry for my fans because it's been a while since I did my last work. They waited to see me working in dramas and films. They are the ones who made me who I am now," he said.

While very excited about his new work, he said he felt "really challenged as my character accounts for a huge portion of the drama."

   Jang was offered the role last fall. When he started to read the script, he said he couldn't put it down.

"I read through the fifth episode on the spot. I visualized the text in my head, and it made my palm sweat with tension. Every incident falls into place like making a puzzle. The biggest selling point is its huge movie-like scale."

   The 32-episode series will premiere at 10 p.m. on Wednesday.
