Stopping all activities at the peak of their popularity, the Tohoshinki members came back in front of the fans in a new style.
After coming on stage, the trio sang their new song “Itsudatte Kimi Ni” with passion, and tears started welling up in Jejung’s eyes. After singing, Jejung said “When I was thinking about the live, I was worried. What will I do if the fans don’t come? But it’s great. To see some many of you turn up, thank you very much!” and cried. The record breaking audience number of 46,000 in Osaka’s Kyocera Dome also started to cheer with tears in their eyes.
With the 3 members appearing after such a long time, the fan’s reactions were mixed. In the sudden interview done by Daily Sports, Although 60% said that they approved of the 3 members’ activities, there was also the opinion that “It may be a pity but, it’s better than them not coming out at all.”
When asked “Do you want to hear the 3 members sing Tohoshinki songs?” 60% of them said “No.” For the question “Is Tohoshinki just going to disband like this?”, just under 70% of them said “No,” showing their rejection to the notion of separation.
And of course, when asked “Do you want to see Tohoshinki do activities as 5?” the answer was a 100% yes. Even though it’s okay to be 3, it’s still better to see them as 5. This was the unanimous response.
With their fans in their hearts, the 3 put out their best performances. Including the Tohoshinki tracks, there were 18 songs in all. Becoming the top solo artist for the year after the first week release of his single “XIAH,”, Junsu’s 3 tracks recorded in the single were also performed.
For the encore, the 3 members were choked with tears. Yuchun said “Last year, many things happened, and I had thoughts about quitting (the entertainment scene.) Talking about the “disbandment” issue, he also said that he was thankful to the fans.
Performances continue at the same venue on the 6th, and on the 12th & 13th at Tokyo Dome, with a total of 4 performances.
