Jang Geun Suk recently made an appearance on the Japanese variety live broadcast show Downtown NOW on May 26 to talk about his activities in Japan.
During his interview, Jang Geun Suk said, In Korea, I only work as an actor; however, in Japan, all of the members of SMAP (a Japanese boy band) act, sing, MC, and do theatre. I would like to become an all-around entertainer like them someday.
Jang Geun Suk was also asked whether he has ever dated another celebrity before, to which he wittily responded, Ive never been caught before, which caused the interviewers to laugh.
However, despite being the guest of honor on the show, Jang Geun Suk was not the primary target of attention after the shows broadcast. During the interview, Minami Minegishi, a member of popular Japanese idol group AKB48, asked, Ive always wanted to ask but was never able to until now. Have you received plastic surgery?
Her question dampened the atmosphere immediately and another MC said, Its impolite to ask those sorts of questions, and moved on; however, immediately afterwards, Minami Minegishis social media accounts were flooded with criticism from netizens regarding her lack of basic interview etiquette.
