On 10th Nov, Korean popular male group U-Kiss' members, Soohyun and Kiseop came to the Tower Records Shibuya store to become '1-day store managers'.
From 26th Oct, Tower Records Shibuya store started ‘K-Pop Lovers Shop’. In replacement, the panels of now in-season Korean artists are on display and it is a success with crowd in front of the booth all the time.
Soohyun and Kiseop signed on an extra-large panel which was established on the 1st floor, and later on, at the 5th floor, the ‘Business Card Presentation’ was held. A total of 800 distinguished fans attended.
On this occasion, we interviewed them prior to the Business Card Presentation, the impression of the fans in front and their desires for advancement into Japan were heard.
- On the large number of fans came rushing, your thoughts are...
Soohyun: Even though it is only 2 members, I am very surprised that so many fans came. Because always cheering for us, each time I have come to feel that “I must work harder” and now I always think about what I can do for the fans.
- Why is it two people, Soohyun and Kiseop this time?
Soohyun: Because to appear in the show Made in BS Japan that is broadcasted from 18:00 every Wednesday, this time Kiseop and I came to Japan. Every week, 2~3 members will come to Japan for live recording. The members are also looking forward to seeing all the Japanese fans every week.
- How is your Japanese study coming along?
Kiseop: When there are words that I don’t know, I will try to ask immediately. I revise it regularly. I’ve been taking notes and studying considerably but remembering it is very difficult.
- The influence of K-Pop in Japan is great but the enthusiasm in doing own activities itself...
Kiseop: We will also do our best so as to get a little closer to the fans. We would like to show cool performances on stage, so please look forward.
Soohyun: We are glad when they can feel us up close. Please have contact with us like the feeling of ‘friends’. Able to feel the sense of closeness is one of the charms of U-Kiss. Please support us. Thank you.
U-Kiss will release the long-awaited Japan first album First Kiss on 10th Dec and hold solo concert in Tokyo.Osaka in the same month. A special event on 9th Dec (Thurs) at Tower Records Shibuya store is also scheduled.
