[News] Jang Keun Suk made headlines with car chase by crazed fans and threat of ban from China

Many eels were upset and angry by the events that happened in China on one recent evening. It soon made headlines in China, such as the Hong Kong Mingbao News (香港明報新聞) shown here:



I’ll summarize for you about what happened:


Jang Keun Suk entered the Chinese market and his strong popularity became very clear. Unfortunately, unpleasant events keep occurring, just as what happened after his “Cri Show II” concert in Shanghai.


After the concert, Jang Keun Suk and his staff went to a restaurant to eat and celebrate a successful concert. However, they were soon encouraged to leave and return to their hotels as many people would not leave them alone and created a public disturbance.

Once in the car and on the road, Jang Keun Suk realized that they were being dangerously followed by fans. Worrying for the safety of the fans (and for the future), he quickly sent out messages through Weibo. Again, he asked that people return home and to drive safely.


As you know now, it became a dangerous car chase for the star and his group as well as for the public. Jang Keun Suk was soon safe in his hotel while his manager Jason gave a statement to the police. Also through Weibo, eels found out that Jang Keun Suk could be banned from coming to China due events such as these that put the public in danger.


Jang Keun Suk has so much love for his eels and was very heart-broken by what happened. He sadly ate noodles that evening since he and his staff did not get the chance to finish their meals at the restaurant.

International eels quickly took to Twitter and Weibo to send comforting words to Jang Keun Suk. #BeHappyJKS was included in many of these messages. Eels did not want their Prince to be sad anymore and wanted him to post a picture of himself with his famous bright smile.


Not long after, he posted the following message attached to a smiling picture of himself:

I love China.. but I dislike those few sas[ae]ang fans who are following me 24hrs dangerously, disobey the safety traffic rules just for their own interest.. Although i want to stay china longer so that i can write Shanghai [D]iary. I’m back to [K]orea!! Sorry and thank you everyone! I love all of [yo]u! ..except those sas[ae]ng fans…

我爱中国.. 只是不喜欢24小时追着我不遵守交通法规不顾安全只想着自己利益的一部分私生饭们.. 反正我本想多在中国待一会也写上海日记的..我回韩国了! 大家对不起也谢谢你们 我爱你们.. 除了私生饭..

张根硕: 난 중국을 사랑해요.. 24시간 나 쫓아다니며 교통법규 위반하고 안전상관안하고 자기 이익만 생각하는 일부 사생팬들이 싫을 뿐.. 어쨋든 중국에 더 있고 싶었고 상하이 다이어리도 쓰고싶었는데..저는 한국으로 돌아갑니다! 다들 미안하고 고맙고 사랑해요.. 사생팬빼고.. #WeicoLomo#
