A picture under the title of “Hallyu star Jang Keun Suk’s popularity” was recently uploaded on an online community board.
In the picture, jacket photos of Jang’s Japanese album Just Crazy are advertised on page 8 of the Asahi Newspaper. Consisting of eight pages, the advertisement contains a full-length picture of Jang on one side and four album jacket photos on the other side.
The Japanese fans of Jang waited for the newspapers from early morning as only 500,000 copies were published. Several TV networks reported about Jang’s high popularity in Japan as shown in such a scene in their early morning news.
People responded: “Jang Keun Suk is so awesome. I didn’t know he was that popular,” “It’s great that Jang Keuk Suk’s album was advertised in a Japanese newspaper,” “I’m so proud of him. It’s amazing that Jang Keun Suk got to have his pictures in eight pages of a Japanese newspaper. He must be really popular.”
