So… as I was up a bit early… I’ve decided to browse through social media and I saw a preview of My Ear’s Candy with Jang Keun Suk. One thing lead to another and I’m done with the first episode, JKS part only.
My Ear’s Candy is a reality show where he was given a phone to talk to an anonymous person. The personality of the person was what he requested for to be his friend/confidant. And he can talk to her until the battery of the cellphone dies. So they chat, talk or do video calls.
Honestly, the JKS I saw there was very different from what I perceived of him. He seems to be really outgoing and I thought he would have tons of friends. But in Episode 1, he does seem lonely. He lives alone in his house and has a pet cat named Kiki.
My heart aches seeing him cook his own meal in very small portion as he needs to maintain his weight. I guess those are the sacrifices of stars. And sometimes, we don’t see how much they give for our entertainment.
I liked how he gets jittery or how he gets embarrassed. It’s very natural like we can see a glimpse of his life. I also liked seeing how he lives in real life. Somehow, this show gave a way for us to see what he is interested in. Like his home theater system, collection or his car.
I am so looking forward to seeing the next episode. It’s like getting to know him more… the real him…
