Jang Keun Suk Hopes Fans Won′t Watch ‘Three Meals’
Jang Keun Suk shared a story behind filming Three Meals – Fishing Village Special.
On January 9, Jang Keun Suk attended the press conference for tvN’s Three Meals – Fishing Village Special at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Gangnam-gu and confessed that he began looking shabby while living in the fishing village.
The preview video for Three Meals – Fishing Village Special revealed on this day showed Cha Seung Won, Yu Hae Jin, and Jang Keun Suk looking unkempt, dripping with dirt and sweat.
When MC Park Ji Yoon asked, “Would it be okay if you, ‘Asia’s Prince,’ looked like that on broadcast?’” Jang Keun Suk answered, “So I would like to ask my fans to not watch it.”
Then Jang Keun Suk was asked why he still decided to be on Three Meals – Fishing Village Special, to which he answered, “When else would I be able to appear on a long program like this - unlike the ones where you experience something for a day or two? That’s why I decided to do it. Once I went, I realized that the lonely and negative sides of Jang Keun Suk would’ve come out if I had gone alone. But because I was with the hyungs, I was able to enjoy it and felt like it was my home.”
tvN’s Three Meals – Fishing Village Special is a spin off outdoor variety program of tvN’s Three Meals – In Gangwon Province starring Lee Seo Jin and 2PM′s Taecyeon. The fishing village special features Cha Seung Won, Yu Hae Jin, and Jang Keun Suk doing all they can in order to feed themselves on the remote island of Manjaedo.
Three Meals – Fishing Village Special is set to begin on January 16 at 9:45 p.m. (KST) through tvN.
