Jang Geun-Seok holds first show of Japanese tour in Fukuoka
Hallyu star Jang Geun-seok kicked off his fan tour “2010 JANG KEUN SUK JAPAN TOUR” over the weekend, meeting with about 3,000 fans in Fukuoka.
A press release from his agency Tree J. Company announced that Jang flew into the country last Thursday for his fan event held at Fukuoka’s Sunplace Hotel Hall the following day.
He opened the event by taking the stage to perform song “Promise U” from the hit SBS TV series “You’re Beautiful” soundtrack and also sang “Please, My BUS!” from his latest drama KBS’ “Marry Me, Mary!”.
The 23-year-old also surprised his fans by appearing in the audience seats to give his encore performance.
“I honestly didn’t think this many people would show up for the event and I find myself truly thankful that I have such great fans who show their support for me”, Jang was quoted as saying, adding that he will work hard to give a better performance for his upcoming shows.
Jang began his career at the early age of five as a catalog model and is well-known for his roles in MBC’s sitcom “Nonstop 4” and drama “Beethoven Virus”.
He rose to super stardom in Korea and throughout Asia last year as the eccentric lead singer of the idol group A.N.JELL in the SBS TV series “You’re Beautiful” alongside actress Park Sin-hye.
He has returned to Korea to continue shooting “Marry Me, Mary!” as indie rocker Mugyul and will be in Hokkaido next week for the second stop of his fan tour.
