On April 22, Jang Keun Suk met a room full of reporters just three hours after landing in Singapore. Although being tired and having caught a flu while in China, Jang Keun Suk displayed his professionalism with smiles for the cameras.
Back in Singapore for the second time exactly one year later, what does Jang Keun Suk miss the most in Singapore? Its the Hainanese Chicken Rice, which is often considered as the “national dish” of Singapore. Host Ah Dong from Radio 1003 asked if it was alright that Jang Keun Suk ate that (the rice is oily), as the latter happily declared that he’s no longer on a diet and he just wanted to enjoy his time in Singapore. He also has the Black Pepper Crab on his agenda!
One reporter commented that many actresses are hesitant to work with Jang Keun Suk as they are worried their beauty would be outshone by him. To this, Jang Keun Suk begs to differ, citing it depends on the characters he had to portray, the diet and hairstyle also changes.
Asked if there were any difficulties in recording the japanese album “Let Me Cry”, Jang Keun Suk shared that there weren’t any particular difficulties but noted the difference — the album represents himself, not as an actor but as an artist.
