Jang Geun Suk attended his first press conference since he was released from the military.
On June 27, Jang Geun Suk held an online press conference to talk about his upcoming online fan meeting, his activities since he was released, and more.
Regarding his fan meeting, he said, “To be honest, we’ve been discussing performances and projects since last year, but the corona virus makes it difficult to find opportunities to meet.” Even for my fan meeting tomorrow, we had prepared for six months, but when our circumstances changed, I asked myself: “How can I deal with it?” Since I met fans for the first time after my discharge, I kept asking myself “What should I do?” Then I thought, even if there is no audience, I want to create a space in which I feel in front of everyone, even when everyone is at home. “
He continued: “As I am trying this for the first time, I do not know how it will go on. Although the noise and vibration do not feel like an actual concert hall, I still want to convey the stories and feelings that I wanted to tell. “
When asked what has changed the most since serving in the military, Jang Geun Suk replied, “I think the biggest change is that I feel healthier. There used to be so many things that felt like a roller coaster so that my life in itself was irregular. I was neither physically nor mentally healthy. “
He added: “In the past two years, I have been working hard at 9:00 am and going home at 6:00 pm. It was the first time in my life that I lived that way. I felt more relaxed and when my body became healthier my mind did too. “With a laugh, he added,” I also turned two years old. “
Jang Geun Suk later apologized to his fans and expressed his admiration for them, saying, “I have felt so sorry for my fans in the past two years. I had never rested before and when I was not in Korea I was in Japan. I was thinking about posting on my fan club website, but I didn’t. It felt like I was putting up a wall between me and my fans. “
He continued: “For the time being, I thought it was right for me to do my best in the role I was given, but I was so sorry. My fans said they wanted to send me chocolate on Valentine’s Day, but I said to them, “I would appreciate it if you didn’t do anything that caught the attention of others.” It was not that I rejected her thoughtfulness. However, I went to my fansite every day. “
After his last drama in May 2018, many are looking forward to Jang Geun Suk’s next acting project. He commented: “I really want to be part of a project. Nowadays I ask myself: “What is a project with a story that lights up the whole project and suits me well?” And read scripts every day. I’m glad I can still look through scripts and I like falling asleep while reading them before bed. “
When asked if he was feeling pressure for his next project, Jang Geun Suk replied: “Not at all. I want to be careful, but there’s no need to think about peripheral things. It is my wish to meet a character who penetrates and agrees with the story. I’ve had a lot of meetings with co-workers lately, and apart from the size or cast of a project, I just want to feel the thrill of acting in front of a camera. Instead of finding a specific character that I want to play, I want to fit into the story. I want to play that kind of character. “
At the end of the press conference, Jang Geun Suk said: “I have become a lot healthier in the past two years and it has been a major turning point in my life. It was a time for me to organize my life goals. Although I will become independent, a new agency I don’t want to live without fun. I want to find ways to have fun and share that. With regard to acting projects, I want to start with a more careful mindset. “
Jang Geun Suk’s online fan meeting will be broadcast on his official YouTube channel on June 28 at 3:00 p.m. KST.
