News was released on January 31st that Jang Keun Suk, who starred in the big hit Hallyu Drama “You’re Beautiful”, will be in Every Little Thing’s new music video for the two songs “STAR” and “MOON” which will be released on February 23rd. Not only was this JKS’s first time starring in a MV, but this will be his “acting debut” in Japan, as well.
This dream-like casting of Jang Keun Suk was due to Kaori Mochida(32)’s “love at first-sight” (Kaori Mochida is the vocal female of ELT). She first saw Keun Suk in “You’re Beautiful” and was so moved by his acting and expression skills that she personally went to Korea at the end of last year and negotiated his casting. Jang Keun Suk, who was moved by Mochida’s passion and ELT’s music agreed to the appearance.
The MV was shot at the end of Jan in Tokyo. The songs construct a short love story where “STAR” is from a woman’s point of view and “MOON” is from a man’s. Viewers will need to watch both versions in order to fully understand the story.
Mochida commented “I first didn’t think he would accept the offer, so I am full of happiness”.
JKS, who will be debuting in Japan as a singer, prior to Korea, also was happy and commented “I was given a very good opportunity. This is a very meaningful present to my fans, as well.”
