On 15-Apr, F4 Lee MinHo, Kim HyunJoong, Kim Joon, Kim Bum and others made an official visit to Japan, and received overwhelming support even from Japanese star ChoNanGang (Tsuyoshi Kusanagi).
They recorded for a section off variety program SMAP X SMAP for about 1 hour at Tokyo Fuji TV from 10am onwards.
The section that they attended is hosted by ChoNanGang and is conducted like local variety program ‘MooReupPak DoSa’ of MBC ‘Golden Fishery’, making the guests talk over their anguishes.
Lee MinHo, Kim HyunJoong, Kim Joon, Kim Bum said during the recording on this day that they had worries as to whether the Korean version of ‘Boys Over Flowers’ would be able to be well received in Japan too, ChoNanGang encouraged them “Japanese are also anticipating it. I think it will be very well received.”
F4 members were being praised “very handsome” by ChoNanGang on this day and the recordings went on in a harmonious atmosphere. Especially idol group SS501 member Kim HyunJoong, who already holds popularity in Japan, demonstrated his fluent Japanese during the recording.
