[by Chloe Yun] Prince of Asia Jang Keun Suk appears on the cover of Marie Clare’s April 2014 special edition issue, on newsstands March 20.
From semi-formal to casual, Jang suggested various spring looks for men through the pictorial. He showed off his great sense of fashion as mix-matching various print and floral items, which accentuated his signature boyish charm.
Jang Keun Suk, who has been loved for his outgoing, outspoken personality, told during the interview that he wanted to be “crystal clear”. He said, “I think celebrity can be thought as a certain form of product or brand. Celebrities may look flawless from the outside, but it doesn’t mean that they are perfect on the inside, too. I want to be like a crystal box so people can see through me. ”
“I want to continue my acting career as long as possible. Acting is what I need to focus on. I can’t be sure that every movie or TV show I choose will be safe and successful. But people say that living flowers with some scratches and thorns are much beautiful than artificial flowers with no scars?”, he continued expressing his passion for acting career.

Hallyu star Jang Geun-seok will host a live radio program in Japan on Thursday, according to local media reports.

On the show titled “All Night Nippon Gold” on Nippon Broadcasting System, Jang will be a DJ for around two hours and talk with local fans.

Jang decided to do a live show to show off his Japanese language skills. Other Hallyu stars includingPark Yong-ha and boy band Big Bang have also hosted the same program but opted to do prerecorded sessions because of the language barrier.

A back-up translator will be on call to help out Jang in an emergency, but many expect that he should be able to host the show alone.

In the program, he will share stories about how he worked to introduce his new album “Nature Boy” which is scheduled to have a local release in Japan one day before the radio show.

It is said that he will also talk about his hobbies and other things that interest him on the program. He may also take live calls from fans.

Jang Keun-suk found out on Sunday that even the “Prince of Asia,” as he affectionately calls himself, is not immune to the dangers of everyday life. He was involved in a car accident at around 5 a.m. while being transported from one drama set to another by his fatigued manager.

The vehicle carrying Jang crashed into a guardrail lining the street and was slightly damaged. The actor continued immediately to the set of “Love Rain,” and visited the doctor after filming ended for the day, according to his agency. He reportedly suffered from only minor bruising and will continue work without interruption.

Korean actors, always chained to their hectic and grueling work schedules, often forgo medical attention when involved in accidents, to continue their work, especially the filming of dramas that often run on tight deadlines.

On March 26, actress Park Ha-sun from the sitcom “High Kick: Attack of the Short-Legged” was also involved in a car accident but only mentioned it in passing on her Me2Day page.
