Trying to give something for the fans to always remember, Kim Hyun Joong shook the hands of Japanese fans for more than six hours.
On June 4, Kim Hyun Joong held a special event for the release of his third single Tonight at the Tokyo Nakano Sun Plaza, where 10,000 fans showed up to see the star.
The gathering took place as an album release event and a handshake event, as well as a surprise birthday party for Kim Hyun Joong, who will be celebrating his birthday on June 6.
It′s said that around 8,000 fans were waiting outside of the hall for the handshake event to start when Kim Hyun Joong made a special request to the event staff to go ahead and seat the fans inside the hall away from the hot weather.
Kim Hyun Joong then proceeded to go around and greet every single fan at their seat for the next six hours, differing from other handshake events where the fans approach the star.
A Universal Music staff member stated, “It’s a given that he shows mature music every time he releases a new album, but it’s Kim Hyung Joong’s special charm to take care of the well-being of his fans, who have waited a long time to see him – that’s something you don’t find in every star.”
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong will be releasing a special digital single for his fans in Korea in time for his birthday on June 6.
