[News] Why Jang Geun Seok calls his fans "EELS"?

In the October 4th press conference of Jang Geun Seok's new film "You're My Pet" (directed by Kim Byung Goon") , he reveals, "I call my Korean and Japanese fans "eels"."

Jang Keun Suk said he always called his Korean and Japanese fans ‘eels.’

He added, "I like to eat eels and i prefer it very much when i need to have stamina food, since my fans are like them and always giving me stamina i call them "eels"."

He attempted to joke, "I call them eel generation (like Girls' Generation")" but unfortunately no one laughs so he said, "not fun" and became shy.

His film "You're My Pet" with Kim Ha Neul is a combination of romance-comedy that will be released on November.
