He touched on the issue while talking about his future plans. Jang said, “I want to knock on the doors of foreign countries which the Korean wave hasn’t reached yet. That’s also [part of] my dream of becoming the Prince of Asia.” He then mentioned, “The future is the future, but the best thing I did recently was give up Twitter.”

Jang used to be one of the representative celebrities who used Twitter to reach out to and converse with his fans. The number of his followers shot past 250,000, but he was still fairly outgoing on Twitter, even revealing details about his college and personal life.

After his debatable actions at the Daejong Film Festival held in October, however, in which he continued to advertise his film You’re My Pet onstage when his partner Kim Ha Neul had received the highest honor at the Festival for a different film, he engaged in a direct dispute with some of his followers, and the way he chose to tweet his warning to his sasaeng (stalker) fans also resulted in a great controversy.

“I gave up my 250,000 followers, but I still think I did it for the best. Now I’ll continue to connect with my Korean and Japanese fans through my fan café [smartphone] application.” he said.

He also said about why he thought he was so popular in Japan, “I believed the Japanese fans were curious about how they couldn’t predict what would happen next with me because of my surprise actions and statements. I think my Japanese fans like me because they can’t define me with one type of thought.”

Jang continued on to entertain his Japanese fans with his successful Tokyo Dome fanmeeting held on November 26.
