Nevertheless, he appeared on stage although he was not well, sang 13 songs including ‘Kiss Kiss’ and ‘Heat’. “Despite it started one hour later, thank you for waiting. I’m really thankful and sorry as i’m not in a good condition and sorry for not managing physical condition profesionally.’ Hyun Joong apologised many times during the talk.

Traveling back and forth between Japan and South Korea, working as a singer cum actor, regarding future plans, “regading future plans, i have not discussed with my company. I want to make an album, I’d like to do world tour” he expressed, “I think next year, i would have concert at a smaller venue rather than the big stage.” hinting a possible japan tour next year.

Around 15000 fans attended the event for both day and night. At the end of the performance, he performed ‘If you are like me’, “I want to sing this a cappella as it expresses my feelings”. As he was having a sore throat, the audience jumped cheered on. He was touched and wiped his face with a towel.



 それでもステージに登場するや、本人は不調を感じさせない様子で、「HEAT」や「KISS KISS」など13曲を熱唱。「1時間遅くなってし まったにもかかわらず、待っていてくださってありがとうございます。感謝の気持ちと申し訳ない気持ちです。正直いうとあまりよくないコンディションでした が、プロらしく体調管理をしたいと思う」と神妙に語り、トークで何度も謝罪した。

 日韓を行き来し、歌手業や俳優業に取り組んでいるが、今後の活動に関しても「事務所との話がまとまっていませんが、アルバムを作りたいし、ワール ドツアーもやりたいし、ずっと忙しくしたいと思います」と意欲を表明。「来年は大きなステージではなく小さなステージで、おひとりおひとりにご恩を返して いきたいと思います」と日本でのクラブサーキットツアー開催をほのめかした。

 イベントには昼夜各1万5000人のファンが来場。昼公演の最後には「バンドを用意しているんですが、どうしても気持ちを伝えたいのでアカペラで 歌いたい」と断って、楽曲「君も僕と同じならば」を熱唱。喉の不安を押してのパフォーマンスに、客席から大声援が飛び、本人も感激のあまりタオルで顔を覆 う場面もあった。
