Jang Geun-seok’s fifth Japanese fanmeeting

Fresh off his latest drama, You’re Beautiful, rising Hallyu star Jang Geun-seok held a fanmeeting in Japan on Sunday before a crowd of 2,000. The event was called 2009 Jang Keun Suk Fanmeeting in Tokyo and was held at Tokyo’s Sun Plaza. The attendees comprised fans from Japan, Korea, China, and even some who flew over from the U.S. to participate.

He sang several songs, including the song “Do You Hear It” (which he sang as part of the OST for his drama Beethoven Virus), “Good Bye” and “Without Words” (which he sang on the OST for You’re Beautiful), and even a trot tune.

This isn’t Jang’s first time in Japan; he held his first fanmeeting there in February 2008 and has held five total in that country. His popularity stems from the numerous roles he’s had over the past several years, several of which have been exported overseas with success. Among those are Hwang Jini, Hong Gil Dong, and Beethoven Virus, which will surely be followed by You’re Beautiful.

Following the fanmeeting, Jang flew back home to Korea, where he intends to take a break for the moment while surveying potential new projects.

Sartorial humour! Or is it sardonic sartorial humour?
Anyway, yay, JGS is rested (since Thanksgiving) and perky again.
Long life to his career, and his picaresque style.

I was there too with another American. I guess there were three Americans there that day. When JGS sang *Goodbye* he got emotional. There were tears in his eyes because that was supposed to be his last song, but then he came out again and walked around the performance hall letting fans take pictures of him. Since there were 2000 plus people there, this was the only way because could you imagine shaking 2000+ hands plus I think he was kinda sick too.

Can't view the pics yet since im checking your website from my office. But based on everyone's comments i'm not sure if im dying to see the shoulder pads or going to just run away like a coward. I love YAB/HTK/JGS too much that i won't risk the chance of disappointing myself..

Lame..

@40 Alert: I so agree with you. Well, at least the low cut neck blouse did not make it this time. JGS has been quite *cough* “quirky” with his style. That is why he is the perfect HTK.

It is fun to be fan of JGS. The guy is super adorable and there is always something to poke at. It makes him more real. That is part of the love, really.

@sweetaddiction

Ok I'm going to sound like a total teen but I don't care.

You are like the luckiest person. I am so envious. Did you travel from the US to go there? Wow that would make you like the most devoted fan I know. Did you see him up close? Touch him? How does he look in person. Did he notice you since your not Asian? Were you in that soompi project book? He might have recognized you since he seemed to have studied the book.

Ok so I don't seem like a total dork. I wouldn't fangirl like this if he couldn't back up his hotness adorableness with real talent. His talent is what makes him 80% hot and the other 20% is personality and physical package. Plus he oozes charisma out of his shiny luminous forehead.

omg!!! I agree about the outfits and the photo angle - at first I thought it was a girl!!

I was thinking that he could do the reverse of Go Min Nam... where the guy cross dresses. The first time I saw him was when he was first in that series with Han Ji Won. Not so impressed w/his character then but look at how far he's come since then!! =) Fighting!! And dress in more manly outfits =)

GAH! It's the Prince of Charisma and Sexiness <3 (Did that sound cheesy or what.)

Geun-seok ah, I wouldn't mind if you wore shirts that accentuated your man cleavage more often (in fact, I would love it). Just not those shoulder pads, I beg you. One Lady Gaga is enough in this world.

Jang Geun Seok is such an amazing actor that he just drew me into You're Beautiful. I can't wait to see his next project. Personally, I could care less for his fashion sense, but his charm and cuteness really grew on me

Y'all, if you think seeing JGS in these clothes (quite restrained by his standards, I thought) tests your JGS-love, you should watch some fancam vids. Eep. The boy can not hold a tune. How can anyone sing so off-key and still look so happy and charming? You have to love him for it. My JGS-love, at least, is strong enough to pass this acid test. Baby, you can sing for me any day, and I promise I won't wince (visibly).

@nycgrl: I'm from Wisconsin, but I live in Chiba, Japan now teaching English. I was ecstatic when I found out he was going to be in Nakano which is only 50 minutes by train from Makuhari where I live. I found out on Friday and saw him on Sunday! I did get to touch his hand when he walked by our aisle as he was singing a song, Elvis style. I'm Asian, so I blend in, but me and the other Asian American held up a sign that says, "I'm from California" and kept shouting out "Jackpot" so he was looking our way several times. I was pretty close to the stage. The seat I bought was all the way in the back, but I met a Japanese lady there earlier and she found me a seat in the fanclub area and then the other American and I moved up three rows because there were two empty seats, so we were pretty close. If you go on youtube, she has some clips up of the fanmeeting. I uploaded mine, but deleted them because I don't know if we could upload clips of fanmeetings. In one of the clips by anf322, you can hear us shout Jackpot and JGS smiling. The second time we did that, he shouted back. It was super awesome.

lolz... he's bringing TK to Japan, I see... Thanks JB for bringing it here... ^^

Luckily, he's still young, so it's okay to experiment with such weird style. *cannot imagine it if a 30+ years old guy wearing such ensemble though... I would die from shock... :P*

Thinking about it, I almost always lolz whenever I see his style... so thanks for the laughter, JGS... it makes me forget for a while all the headache and work waiting for me... ^^ Cannot wait to see what role he's going to choose next. Gonna watch it for sure... ^^

@langdon: I think I will need to join your club... instead of getting better, this obsession is going to the other direction... lolz...

@ 48 panshel

me too. I skipped Lee Min Ho as soon as I see JGS. I know he just finished YAB project & admitted to hospital for exhaustion. But I'm so looking forward to his new project. I want him to pick a new project asap. I know I'm being selfish. But I love him so much and he is the very first actor that I'm excited about that much. :)

JB, Thank you so much for the post and everything.

I love JGS, too! I discovered him in YAB and fell head over heels in love with him which annoys my bf to the core. hahaha. About his fashion sense, I think it's what makes him more unique as an actor and as an individual. I've been scouring the net for anything JGS and somehow what I found just makes me love him more. I never thought I could be such a fan-girl for a Korean actor.

I don't even understand Korean but i love listening to his voice so much his songs are in my phone's playlist 24/7. And because of him, I am learning Hangul just so I could someday understand all what he's saying with that sexy voice of his. He should be made an ambassador or something by the Korean gov't for sparking interests in Korean culture and language. An adorable person and actor, Go Mi Nam is right --- he's such a brilliant star it's hard not to see him, even if you have night-blindness.

LOL ME TOO!
i skipped LMH as soon as i saw JGS =)

and as weird as the fashion is, it does not surprise me in the least haha!
one of the things about JGS is that he does attempt very outward fashion styles but the beauty of it is that he makes it look a hell of a lot more decent than any other actor could.. of course, that doesn't mean i wouldn't like to see him in more umm.. trendy? clothes lol

good luck to him!
he deserves the hype, and i hope he rests well and continues to produce some more outstanding acting skills in his next projects =)

I didn't get his fashion sense before but after watching him play TK, he might start wearing a skirt and I will still love him BIG TIME! This guy is so good that he totally convinced me to like the androgynous look.

lol! i didn't notice the shoulder pads until i read all the comments! and because i don't have a fashion sense, i totally don't mind at all.. ^.^

I must be in the minority but i think he's really working the shoulder pads. It's such a challenging look and I could count on 1 hand the number of people who can pull that off.

I love his sartorial rebellions; he could have easily gone with the tried and tested black suit and skinny tie, or chinos and loafers etc etc. but how boring is that??!! I think his fashion choices scream "I dun give a fig what you think!!" - this cheekiness is so HOT!

Kudos to him for going the fashion road less travelled.. or maybe I'm just so biased he could wear a tea towel and I'll still think he's HOT ;p

Good luck on breaking the JPN market in Feb when YB starts airing! Looking forward to your next project!

Hmm... tea towel. I would also think he's HOT wearing that... lolz... :P

But yeah, I always looking forward to what he's gonna wear next. I love how he dare to try different things, although it may or may not work... *still remember when he dressed like a drag queen... omg... I almost fell off my chair from laughing so hard... :P*

Oh, YB is airing in Japan di Feb?? Hopefully A.N.Jell is going to go there to promote it... that way, we can see them one more time... ^^

i wish JGS will go tokyo again next year! i'll be in tokyo for a couple of months from Jan 2010 :)

yes, his clothes may look weird, but JGS can carry it very well! Somehow i got reminded of YEH's weird outfits in My Fair Lady but I feel JGS carry it better than YEH because of his killer smile :-)

@kris: I agree with your comments. I think he carries those weird designer clothes better than YEH. Maybe he looks more fashionable and so sweetie.

I am the minority. I think he looks good in that outfit. Not many people has the courage to wear these outfits. And he is so daring. He makes everyone talking about his looks. So he keeps you entertained in his ways.

I did not like JGS when YB first aired, mainly because of his weird clothes and make up. But after YB's training, I thought I get used to JGS' daring look and begin to admire his fashion sense. I maybe surprised if he dressed in normal suits.

@Judy: I agree with your comment. I can't think of anyone I know that can dress like that and still look great. It's like my sense of fashion righteousness is turned upside down when I look at him. And I don't care a bunch!

He's awesome as he is, with or without clothes ;)

@97 belleza

thanks for the vid!

JGS is sure rocking the song! He was soo out of tune hahaha from the beginning till the end, and yet, I'm grinning from ear to ear and swooning all over!

Even when he sings out of tune
wears thick eyeliner
wears spiky shoulderpads
wears lacy dress with skirts (u guys sure come up with great ideas to crack me up LOL!)
wears tea towel (would love to see him in that)

I still think he's rocking the weirdness LOL! He sure is one eccentric guy. Guess thats why nobody else could play HTK so well.. JGS is HTK (at least in the fashion sense LOL!)
