Yonsama Bae Yong Joon (39) will visit Japan for the first time after the earthquake and it makes his Japanese fans excited.
On the 9th, Nikkan Sports and Oricon News in Japan reported that “Bae Yong Joon will visit Japan with Taeck Yeon and Woo Young of 2PM this coming September.”
This visit is to promote the Japanese DVD Box of KBS 2’s drama “Dream High,” which aired in Korea last January and received good responses. Bae Yong Joon produced a music drama with Park Jin Young of JYP Entertainment and it became a topic. Including Taeck Yeon and Woo Young, mammoth idol stars like IU, Suzy of Miss A, and Eun Jeong of Tiara appeared in “Dream High” and it drew lots of attention not only in Korea, but to the Hallyu fans in Asia. It aired at the end of January in Japan via satellite broadcasting, DATV. Nikkan Sports also reported that “It will be an unforgettable moment for K-POP fans as well as Bae Yong Joon’s fans”.
Last March, after the Japanese earthquake, Bae Yong Joon sent a comforting letter to the disappointed Japanese citizens and donated one billion won.
