Ji Chang Wook held a fan meeting cum concert in Japan on the 17th at the Tokyo International Forum, which drew about 5,300 local fans. This was the largest turnout for a single performance.
This concert was the third one that he has held in Japan following his “JCW in OSK 樂ruck CONCERT” in April last year, and his “JCW Autumn Festival” concert in Tokyo and Osaka last November. He showed a surprising power to drum up ticket sales as all seats were sold out to just his Japanese fan club members alone.
Ji Chang Wook’s appearance on stage drew loud cheers from fans at the show. Following the show’s theme of “Songs of love to my fans”, he performed songs such as “To the Butterfly”, “I Miss You (보고 싶다)”, “Maybe That’s It (그런가 봐요)”, “Bye Bye Bye (안녕 안녕 안녕)”, “Starry Mood (星晴)” and “Kissing You”. Fans sang along with him in Korean. Fans had to choose a song that they would like him to sing, and “I’ll Protect You” from the “Healer” OST placed first. He performed a total of 19 songs, including “I’ll Protect You”, with the live band.
Ji Chang Wook humbly expressed his thanks to his Japanese fans, saying, “I’m here because of my fans”, to which fans responded with warm cheers of support.
Ji Chang Wook’s Japanese fan club is currently managed as a paid membership. Membership rates have increased within a year and membership renewal has also been high, which shows his high popularity in Japan.
According to a local concert representative, Ji Chang Wook has been enjoying great popularity in Japan thanks to his dramas “Empress Ki” and “Healer”. His number of fans have been increasing with time, and there is even greater interest in him now with the airing of “The K2” on Mnet Japan.
Meanwhile, Ji Chang Wook will be having his next fan meeting in Taiwan on 11 March.
