I love Let Me Cry and Bye Bye Bye from when they were released in the Let Me Cry single. Listening to the rest now, thank you for the post! :D

The title "prince of Asia" alternates between making me lawl and pissing me off royally (hah! no pun intended, but what a happy accident). It's just so ridiculous.

Uhm... Nice girl band cover?

More like Princess of Asia. Dude's surgeries made him more beautiful than his sister.
hirogime 3rd-Jun-2012 08:26 am (UTC)
Okay, stupid question time!
What surgeries did he have done? Nose? Eyes?
booboobooboo99 4th-Jun-2012 06:51 am (UTC)
He has never had surgeries, that's just what haters try to use against him. Dude's been in the spotlight since he was a little kid. You can see that his face never changed. Also, he came out a while ago against the nosejob rumours by scrunching up his nose and making pigface and all sorts of things to show there's no plastic in there. XD
Gotta love his sense of humour, take it in your stride boy!

by scrunching up his nose and making pigface

LOL. He did that??
Actually this rumor about him has been circulating among my friends and turning into joke, like "wut? Jang Geun Seok is so cocky now because he'd nosejob?? Lolololol" but actually none of us know whether it's true or not, so I'm curious. Haha

"Prince of Asia"
Says who? He himself? His fans? Because it's really not making me want to check him out. So nice job ^^b
uledy 3rd-Jun-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
Say his fans, say his critics, says Jang Keun Suk himself. It's a nickname he and his fans have for him that's kind of been turned into a joke :p
fumine 3rd-Jun-2012 01:43 am (UTC)
Ah, thank you ^^b
uledy 3rd-Jun-2012 01:45 am (UTC)

haha! well in that respect you're most definitely right. He's been love with J-rock for ages and it's like now that he has time/money/fame he's able to act out his dreams. I ain't mad at him though, go ahead JKS cause people are buying this album up. I will say I bought "Let Me Cry" and was piiiiiiiised at how horrible the music and photo shoot were OTL
booboobooboo99 4th-Jun-2012 06:55 am (UTC)
I hated Let Me Cry the first 4-5 times I heard it, but it grew on me eventually. Only because I liked the song Bye Bye Bye, I listened to the single a lot. I agree he doesn't have a lot of singing talent, but he's trying. Bless his little heart.

However, to say he's completely talentless (as a few people here are implying) is not good form. He's a damn talented actor, and very professional. People need to stop posting his stuff in arama since he's not actually Japanese and people who only look at Japanese idols probably have no idea who he is. And please to stop titling him as "Prince of Asia" because it makes everyone cringe. Just use his name. >.<

/ end rant

So we should only post about Japanese people...? I don't think posting every little thing about him or other Korean celebrities in Japan is necessary, but JKS is very relevant in Japan. It just amuses me how some people, I don't they're in this post, claim to know everything trending in Japan, but have no idea who he is. His name is pretty mainstream and many non-hallyu crazy Japanese people know he is (although I think more so a couple years ago than now). His music career is solely in Japan. He hasn't really released albums or singles in Korea other than OST. He's basically a Japanese artist.

Honestly, it's not my problem if people on arama are ignorant of him. If they want to make generalizations about him, assume facts that aren't true, ect I don't really care. This is not an idol comm. The "Price of Asia" thing is a joke and if people on Arama don't get it or want to criticize it, I don't care.

If you take issue with that, then I suggest you start posting about him or PM the mods, although I'm sure they've pretty much all but fallen asleep in this comm.

I have no issue with JGS at all, I'm a big fan of his. That's why I don't like to see the posts about him in Arama where I've never seen anything but "nugu" comments and bashing.
I don't want to see him get bashed, that's all. :(
uledy 4th-Jun-2012 03:41 pm (UTC)
Well, that just means we're going to have to spam the heck out of his next post with adorable pictures and gifs and people will just have to deal with it XD

booboobooboo99 4th-Jun-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)

I'm sure I have no idea what you mean.

uledy 4th-Jun-2012 04:03 pm (UTC)
awwwwww way too adorable!


(can't join in the spam party now, at work -_-)
