2005/08/04 Source

Japanese fans are waiting for the events hosted by each Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo, the main characters of 'Winter Sonata' with Great Expectations.

A local media reports that on 31 August in Saitama Super Arena, Bae Yong-joon is to hold an event in commemoration of 'April Snow' starring Bae to open in Japan.

This event will be live from the event hall (Saitama, Japan) broadcasted to major cities including Sapporo, Osaka and Fukuoka. Saitama Nikkan Sports reported that the event hall has a seating capacity of 25,000, but the tickets were all sold out on the first day of release. "Due to this great popularity, number of fans is asking to hold the event in other cities. For that reason, to give a chance to see Bae Yong-joon to those fans who failed to get tickets, the exceptional nationwide live broadcasting is being planned", Nikkan Sports added.

Besides, according to Nikkan Sports, "On this occasion, the director Heo Jin-ho and Son Ye-jin, played in the film together with Bae, will make appearances as well. They will introduce some episodes in the film while communicating with fans there in person".

Meanwhile, in September, Choi Ji-woo will host 'Choi Ji-woo's Drama Concert' in Osaka, Japan. On a press conference at a hotel in Osaka, Choi announced to host 'Choi Ji-woo's Drama Concert' total three times on 13 and 14 September at the Osaka-Jo Hall.

This concert is the same format with the one of last June at the Little Angels Performing Arts Center in Seoul that singers including Kim Beom-soo will sing the theme and other songs in OST of 'Winter Sonata', 'Beautiful Days' and 'Stairway to Heaven' where some famous scenes are in the background.

Choi Ji-woo will also share some episodes in those dramas. The Osaka Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra will perform the music in the concert.
