[Instagram] Jang Keun Suk Praised by Junior Actor - 2018-05-16

JKS has this strange reputation in Korea...which when I toured Korea in 2016 seemed completely confounding and something I failed to understand then as well as now.

Nevertheless, when I see an actor or director ponder JKS' true self, I'm forced to pause again and wonder what or why Koreans think of him as they do. Often, I'm confounded.

Forgive me if I sound patronizing, but to me JKS, over the years, sounds or seems much like many of us were at those ages. A bit wild. Willing...and even enjoying...breaking the rules. Believing that everyone, regardless of nationality, race, religion, gender, creed or culture, was worthy of love and respect. Never pushy or ego-centric and always caring towards others without being demanding. Careful and conscious towards others. Playful and witty, with an ability to see the funny and amusing side of life and humanity. Open but never forcing himself upon a sense, holding himself back as a sign of respect towards others. Yet, giving, kind and generous. 

In other words, doesn't he exhibit what most of us really wanted to be?
