Jang Keun Suk has successfully completed his Japanese arena tours and already has plans to return to Japan for more concerts.

The singer/actor also drew attention by singing the Korean national anthem for a friendly match between the Korean celebrity baseball team Play Boys and the Japanese professional baseball OB team held in Tokyo Dome on October 24. It was reported that he had to get an IV injection prior to the event because he was so exhausted due to his hectic schedule.

The most popular special set-up for the concert was a cart bar on stage where he invited a guest and gave impromptu live guitar performances with surprise images in the background, delivering big laughs to the audience. He also gave an explanation of Korea’s cart bars and Koreans’ unique warm-hearted sentiment found in such a place, helping to let Japanese understand that aspect of Korean culture.

After the concert, he said “I experienced happy moments with fans who came to see my performance for which I’ve devotedly prepared over the last four months. This venue is far larger than the place where I had my first fan meeting in 2008. Just like fans who have kept an eye on me since then, I feel so grateful for this moment that I feel like this moment is unreal. I know all my fans are worried about me because I always do things my own way, but I’ll make efforts every day not to let them down.”

Meanwhile, Jang is scheduled to hold a press conference on October 28 in Tokyo to share his feelings on the arena tour and talk about the future plans including Tokyo Dome concert, the release of a picture collection, and autograph events. He is slated to have a solo concert in Tokyo Dome on November 26 and will continue to film the new drama Love Rain, which will air sometime in the first half of next year.
