Music Spotlight: Jang Geun Suk’s “Let Me Cry” and “Amagoi” (雨恋)
Back in late 2011, I wrote a Music Spotlight post (FKA “Ni-Ongaku Spotlight”) highlighting a song released by South Korean actor Jang Geun Suk. At the time of writing he was the most desired actor Japanese fans wanted to see in the midst of the Korean Wave in Japan, trending above even AKB48, and performing at a sold out concert at the Tokyo Dome.

I have since republished the post, although the post originally highlighted Jang Geun Suk’s first single “Let Me Cry”, I chose to highlight a different song, Crazy Crazy Crazy, from his first full-length album. I was unable to locate a good quality upload of Let Me Cry. However, it has been re-uploaded on his official YouTube channel.
In case you missed the post highlighting what makes Jang Geun Suk special, be sure to check out our previous entry of Crazy Crazy Crazy. If you are already somewhat in the know: many of you are probably wondering “Where is he now?” in 2021? If you’re regularly into Korean entertainment, you may know that it is a requirement for men to enlist into a 18-month+ military service as they approach their late twenties, especially in the past couple of years as there have been changes made by the South Korean government when it comes to celebrities.
Jang Geun Suk was one of those celebrities required to adhere to his duties as a Public Servant. He quietly enlisted in the Summer of 2018, and was discharged on May 30, 2020. As of writing, he is taking interest in several potential K-Drama projects. Looking forward to seeing what he has in store for everyone on the small screen!
In the meantime, he is reconnecting with his fans, especially in Japan, with a slew of singles including “Amagoi“: a song of interest for those who are digging the comeback of the City Pop style of music from the 80s.
