Goodbye Jang Geun Suk


Do you know Jang Geun Suk?
One of  his teen photos that I love (Left) and as I expected he grew up a fine young man (Right) or so I thought.
I was a diehard fan of him since 2009, after seeing him at "You're Beautiful", I've searched all of his previous works, dramas, movies, variety shows, and I love all of it, especially his drama "Beethoven Virus". I even wrote this, below, on my Facebook years ago-

Jang Keun Suk (written on my FB)

“I never thought that I would like an actor younger than me. But I started following JKS after I’ve watched You’re Beautiful the first time. Why the disclaimer? Because I've watched the series more than 20 times in a span of 1 month. :) I was attracted to his character, Hwang Tae Kyung and I can picture it as him.
Recently, I've started discovering his personality and interests. I like him trying to reach out to fans by uploading a load of pictures via twitter. Even if he is using his friend’s account or using the organizer’s accounts, he still makes it a point to update his fans of what he is doing. What’s nice about it is that he is natural in those pictures, sometimes wearing a sando, signing autograph or eating something.
He has a nice voice. In fact, I love all of his songs in You’re Beautiful. Some of the songs are also addictive.
He has a great personality, in his recent visit to Taiwan, not only did he showcase his English speaking skills, he also showed his fans how fun he is. The hosts didn't have a hard time conversing with him. He’s game about anything.
JKS is on the go now. I’m sure in a few years time, he’ll be more successful."

-------

I like him on his previous image, masculine, more humane and much more attractive.


However, I stopped admiring him, and of course, stop supporting him because of his attitude. At first I'm in denial, I said to myself - "oh maybe he's just experimenting and showcasing his talent with such confidence".
But after his drama "Marry Me, Mary". It's a dead end. I can't stand it anymore. Why? I'm just so disappointed by his career move, fashion style wise (or his new image) and his behavior. What I don't like the most is his image, why wear those girl perky clothes? Why sport a curly long hair? I know his not a gay, but why wear those things? Is this his vision of the new generation?
Maybe you'll say I'm not a loyal fan and I'm like those fans who abandoned their idol once they don't like their idol's career move.
Well, if he's a gay, I will still support him; I have respect to all kinds of gender orientation, but not on fake gay or imitating gay image. That’s a big insult to every gay in this world.

Few of his famous photos flaunting his "handsomeness"
Cover Photo of his FB fanpage : The EELS Family

I don't base my admiration on looks but on talent, I know he has one, what I despise is he let this changes on himself. I am not fine with this fake-gay style, plus the arrogance.



From Hancinema article -

 Next, pointing to Logan Lerman, he said, "I am glad to meet a good friend. I will step over being the prince of Asia and go to Hollywood".

He then showed confidence to the crowd and a smiling Logan Lerman, "You think I won't make it to Hollywood?" 

 I'm not OK with his behavior of "I-am-the-most-perfect-greatest-artist-on-this-planet".
Also, his not being honest with his fans. His image is nothing but business front. If he feels good in such clothes, such image, fine with me, but if a man wears it to hypnotize diehard fans and get "something" from that glittery image. I don't buy it. His persona is just like that. A business front. 

See how he shows his "love" to his fan, by launching an iPhone application, where you can follow him and know the latest updates about his greatness and cuteness, with a price of course(!). Or have his Official Telephone Alarm Application and again, it's not free either. 

I know I just declare war here to all of his fans around the globe, but this is my feelings and I'm just being true to myself. Goodbye JKS, I still hope success on your career.

    You have nothing to fear, you could have not said it better. I used to like JKS only for his acting, never thought he was handsome, too many handsome men in the world to think about him like that. But as an actor I used to respect him, but suddenly he started acting things in which he was the handsome guy, totally ridiculous, he also started what I call "The fake gay" he does it so so bad that makes me laugh so so hard, his pictures dressed like a woman, with makeup, wanna be gay moves, not even a woman moves like that. But he seems he is open to do ANYTHING for the money and he is disrespecting greatly the gay community and the male community. Honestly I dont know if he is aware of the consequences, he might think I dont care if I am getting so so rich, but the day will come when he will be remembered in all BBC and Discovery channel documentaries as the ideal of "asian gayness" and that will be his only legacy. I dont even want to see him acting anymore, beleive that it is a profession that deserves respect, really feel pity for him and his family, money is not everything in life and he will find it out soon. Anyway I guess I wrote enough for someome who is no longer important so will never speak of him anymore, great article, totally agree with you.

    Hi Anonymous,
    Thank you for visiting and reading my blog! I totally agree with you. Now i know that I'm not the only one who noticed his "cleverness". If only he'll realize what his doing in his career...tsk tsk..and I pity those fans whose blinded by his "charisma". again thanks! and God bless..

    Nice to read something like this regarding JKS..i don't like his current fashion sense either..so very "fake gay" and so becoming like a clown.

    so agree with u..at first i really like his acting in Baby & Me..but now..i don't know..he give a negative vibe to me...i don't like his attitude and of course his "gayness" (i don't judge and discriminate people because of their same gender interest). he looks fake

  5. Anonymous said... 9/05/2013 9:40 AM

    Yeah, he fakes to be gay so the crazy girls like him, disrespects gays, disrespects men, just to get money he can sell his mother, cynical man

    good looks - ✔
    great singing voice - ✔
    superb acting - ✔
    charisma - ✔

    JKS possesses a lot of good things, but somehow, all these talents and physical attributes are not enough for you to be called a good artist. I've watched all of his dramas and movies, he's also great on it's ost. But it's so weird that I don't have the urge to watch his interviews, and after reading your blog, I knew it already, he has air on his head plus this career move that some of his fans might not be able to contain. I know there's an explanation with this and he owes his fans one. The fans are the life of an artist, without them, they're nobody and I think JKS already knows that he just need to reach out for them.

    I hate to compare, but I think Kim Hyun Joong is way better with regards to taking good care of his fans and trying hard to keep them. Aside from the fact that KHJ doesn't know he's really famous, which means, he don't put fame in his head.

    JKS is more better singer than KHJ. Acting wise, JKS is better than KHJ of course (KHJ is like a statue when acting). They're both good looking (they bring out the teenage girl in me ツ)

    I hope JKS would realize this coz several fans out there doesn't have a good reception with this changes. Hoping it's not too late.

    First and foremost, I want to thank you guys for reading my "bitterness".
    I am too was disappointed, I guess I like him so much to be disappointed/hurt this much. He is truly has full potential and He has almost everything, but sadly he's using it in different way.
    How disappointing..

    i am so sad to see this article for are just one of those lost eels. i pity you for giving up. after all those years you never really got who the real JKS and what he is made of. please know that whatever happened Sukkie will always wait for you to come back and realize that he never gave up on his dream to be a great actor for eels like us- that is if you were even truly one.

    I'm really shocked with his new styles..how can someone make money with this??it'll just eventually make him loose everything & that's surely not a nice thing...

    Oh guys , you don't get JKS...he is a fun free spirited person, trying different things. Creative people like him creates and experiment that's what makes his personality so dynamic. Get over it , he has a life , your free to share in his vision , if you no longer get it - then go find somebody else!

  12. Ritaj Temesgen said... 1/10/2014 1:13 AM

    I am a fun of JGS and whatever he is i am still his fan cause its his choice. Ya, it will be more appreciable if he is not gay. And no one is certain that he is. By the way, i am a kind of person who do the upside down when people says something about me that is not their business. So, when he was suspected to be gay and when people are talking about him being gay he night get really angry and want to show them what they want even if he is not. So the one who said i hate you, pls don't make a haste decision. Whatever he is doing he has his own reason! Luv you JGS! And pls don't step out from Korean film industry cause there are many people who really misses to see you in Korean Dramas like me! So, don't be bothered by people cause we people knows only to talk! Take care!

    Give JKS the benefit of the doubt, if you supported him from the start why had the change of plans when you feel something was off. Don't you have a little faith?..If you knew him to be nice from the long range of being a fan then maybe you must be the 1st one to understand him...being a hallyu star is tough and you know this for sure. He'll be crazy if he tries to follow every fans likes and wants. If he acts like off maybe he's going thru a hard time or thats what he really is.., isnt it nice to see him happy even if it's so out of the box? it means he's human after all... and by saying goodbye to him online doesn't help... you are frustrated and so JKS and also all the eels... so all will be unhappy.. cmon wake up your minds..and stop listening to heresay... critics here didnt do their homework well... they say off things and then they'll get sad.. wth! sad and continue criticizing? they are the one who doesn't live a healthy life.. so let JKS do his work whatever it is as long as its legit, right? maybe sooner you might be surprised... cheers everyone!

    I still think Jang Keun Suk the best young actor in South Korea and I wish him all the best in the future. I will still watch his dramas or movies and listen to his songs. He's still very young, I hope in a few years he'll do even better.

    Whatever you fake eels say he is gonna still be my best korean actor ever, and i dnt really care whether he is gay or not, just let him breath!

    Once JKS said that he got tired of those people who dictated him what to say and how to act, he's not a robot. He's just showing his "real" personality on and off camera. People don't even know what he went through to become a great actor. Just think of how he makes millions of people happy with all his work. Though we can see that he is so active and positive, he might have been lonely all the time. Please don't judge him the way he talks, acts or his style. He is still an ordinary human after all. He also gets hurt with such criticisms.

  18. Anonymous said... 5/04/2014 4:03 AM

    He is certainly not a robot but his eels are. I think he's good in brainwashing fans with his looks (which I don't get why they go crazy about it). And of course these fans feel so loved by him, when the truth is, this guy doesn't know a single thing about them or care about them. He just wants to drain fans' money (so he can buy another luxury car). Make them go gaga over him, so they will buy his crappy cd or download his crappy song, watch his crazy concept concerts/fm (which happens every freaking month in Japan), play his otome game -_-, purchase his zikzin products or any products he endorsed, stalk him in all social media, and read his tweets like it's the current news in the world. I see this manipulative strategy in all fandom.

    So, congratulations to you princess!!! Glad you got out of the matrix system.

    I've read somewhere that Cri-J staff are boycotting Baeksang Award due to the voting fee. I'm guessing the Prince of Asia is losing popularity.
    They had no complaints about the voting system in the past, in fact JKS won the "Popularity" award couple of times. So, why boycott it now? Is it because he didn't win last year, and his chance of winning this year is very slim because of tougher opponents, or is it because he's really not that popular anymore.

    The other Kpop groups are having concerts in USA, and all over the continents, while the Prince of Asia is still stuck in Asia, and he has only held concerts on selected Asian countries, countries that can afford him. Eels in the Philippines should boycott him because he has no plans of having a concert in the Philippines, not even a small FM for his loyal eels. Low fanbase count equals to no profit, remember this is all about business. I feel bad for this petition https://tl-ph.facebook.com/PETITION.JGSinPH Fans really worked hard on this. I guess his company has never looked into it, nor considered it.

  21. Simply Princess said... 5/13/2014 8:11 AM

    Maybe they (cri-j) were tired getting nominated on the same minor award for the Nth time and wasn't nominated to major ones..which I doubt he deserves..I feel bad and bleed for his fans ..there are lots of real artist out there that they deserve...artist that will recognize and return their passion and loyalty and love..

    Thank you for reading my blog .. :)

    He is in fact loosing popularity very fast, he knows his end is near, kind of desperate doing all those crazy things, if you have not noticed he is many times taking drugs, acting like a jerk this guy is a looser and the world will see his real self soon, beleive me you wont like it.

    You seem to forget that celebrities are just like us. Look at Miley Cyrus went from good girl image to wild. We might not agree with their decision But if the person is talented then respect that. Can you just be happy for them? Much respect to those celebrities who are not afraid to show the world 'This is Me!' Now to even state Fake-gay like dressing and what I got out of that is You are sure labeling. Wow! So Gay suppose to dress a certain way; normies dress a certain way; punk rock dress a certain way; etc..... That is just saying people should listen to certain music to who they are: gay, straight, bisexual...
    I find it amusing how 'not a fan' would go through great length to create a blog to express 'feelings' on a celebrity. And you say you don't care for JKS anymore? Good job! Things that make you go Hmmmmmmm... Lol
    God Bless you and don't do God's work -only God can judge him!

    you say you liked his talent!! okay; all I can see; if you turned from being a fan into a hater just because he changed his looks; that's seems to me so ""superficial"" !!

    second, I happens to know some gay people; they dressed up like any other straight men; so when you go around saying that JKS insulted the gay nation!! you know, you're insulting the by classifying them in some kind of a special race!!

    you have to know one thing; I'm not angry with you when you turned against him; if it only was for the right reasons!!

    don't take it too personal; jang geun suk was not deceiving his fans; that particular image was necessary for that particular role; and then he had to take it further to promote his album, but still, he never lost his character in the middle of all this; you know it and his fans know it: any artist would do that; it's necessary to wear the role you're playing to succeed otherwise like you said; he won't be talented!!
    I mean just imaging: a rock star with a serious attire and a military or even a regular hear cut and a strict attitude; no then; they don't match do they!!
    and for the make up in nature boy: that was for the album; and for other pics: I know sometimes he goes too far; but that's just him having fun, we all know that!! you said you loved him so much you couldn't tolerate the disappointment: I would say you've get it wrong: you've never loved him, sometimes you have this crush on someone for one reason or another, but then those flashy feelings goes away and you start questioning yourself, why did I get involved!! honey; it's not him you hated, it's yourself you should be disappointed with for not understanding her own feelings; and it's only fare to tell you the difference: the once who loves him; yhey call themselves a family; no one hates the family; even when we fight or didn't like something someone of us did; we never hate him for that, (hate the did not the doer) why! because we're family; and family don't hate each-other, we support, we love, we orient, never let go or look away!

    just for your information, people are made to live and make mistakes, only those who learn from them and try to keep on going foreword without trapping in their faults, those the once deserves to be respected and will have their goals achieved; and I believe JKS is one of them.

    anyway; even if it was for little while , thank you loving our JKS

    I do not agree with statement that he acted like a jerk. Even as dokgo mate, his last drama, he still acted great. Not because his handsome but his acting or expression... His eyes specially, his face talk more than words. I agree with you for nature boy I don't like his style too , too girly . But now I am proud for him in crishow 3...great music and voice. Please watch... Just to make us smile a little bit between our hard days....

    Felt sad after reading your blog about JKS but it's okay because you are entitled of your opinion & choices. After watching "Beethoven virus" i got curious about him since his character was very kind & considerate and from then on i became his fan. In the industry that JKS belongs, it is really tough competitions & i fully understands his career move w/c is simply to try everything. With the current news & interviews about him, it's nice to know that he is generous enough sharing his money thru his foundation.

  30. Unknown said... 5/10/2016 11:38 AM

    Wow... you really hated him huh? Well... it's ok. Just leave him. No need to spread your hate. That's childish. People grow up and people change. He can dress up however he like and so can you. Haven't anyone teaches you how not to judge a person based on the cloth they wear?
    And by the way, his air of arrogant is what i love about him. I mean...he became a rockstar (not that he sings rock but you know what i mean). He is more successful in singing now and... every great one has an air to them. Swallow your own pride and step aside please..

    Reading this article made me realized why i liked jks, it's because he isn't perfect! (well, who is?). the comments also proves that "haters are secret fans", you see how they throw harsh words yet they are still interested in what he does or how he looks! he has been through a lot of controversies and i really admire the courage he has to continue. haters gonna hate but he will leave you amazed!

    Love your post, and totally agree. I really liked him in Hong Gil Dong drama (my 3rd drama that got me into me the k-wave), but yeap. It's sad that he has such a kind of philosophy, I can't admire or respect him anymore. The only credit that I can give him is "you made it, boy" now I hope that karma doesn't come to you and if there's an after life don't burn yourself in hell. :-P

    J'ai découvert récemment JKS et franchement je l'adore. C'est un excellent acteur j'ai regardé ses dramas et films de You're beautiful a Daebek (Jackpot) Coté chanteur j'adore ce décalage qu'il peut avoir avec ses concerts solo et alors je surkiff ceux de la Team-H et je dirais que c'est bien dommage qu'il ne fasse pas de concert autre qu'en Asie car j'aimerai tellement aller a un de ses concert j'en rêve. Apres il a eu des dérives je pense a l'alcool mais quand on une célébrité comme lui malgrés qu'a vous lire depuis le début des commentaires KKS était quasi fini (lol) nous voila fin 2017 et tous ses concert son complets .Pour ce qui est de s'exporté autre que l'Asie , peut-être n'est-il pas intéressé par les USA et puis même si il ni fait pas carrière et qu'il reste populaire qu'en Asie je vois pas ou est le problème. Apres si JKS était Gay bien on va dire que son choix sexuel est personnel cela ne lui enlève en rien son talent que je trouve immense. J'attend la suite de sa carrière et si je pouvais malgrés toutes les critique sur lui que j'ai lu et bien j'irai au Japon ou en Corée voir un de ses concert. J’espère qu'un jour je pourrais m'en offrir un car ne ne pense pas qu'il viendra a Paris . Et toutes les critiques que j'ai pu lire ne me fera pas changer d'avis sur lui ce gars la est pour moi une révélation de l'année au moins je passe de super moments a écouter ses chansons , regarder ses concerts et rever devant ses dramas. Et Jang Keun Suk garde ton look et tes cheveux long , les cheveux trop court ou les brushing te rende pépère.Continue a faire rever tes FANS
