Actor Song Seung-heon to Send Message to SG Wannabe’s Concert in Japan


Hallyu star Song Seung-heon, who is currently serving in the Army, will send a video message to be shown at the group SG Wannabe’s first solo concert in Japan.

A 5-minute video message from Song will be shown at the group’s concert to be held at the Stellar Hall of the Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo on May 13.

Song has a close relationship with the music group, as they are under contract with the same agency. He filmed about a 5 minute-long video message to celebrate the group’s first solo concert in Japan. SG Wannabe will sing its hit song "While I’m Living," using as a backdrop the music video of "Sad Love Story," which was filmed in Australia.

Upon hearing the news, members of Song’s official Japanese fan club "Heonirang Japan" had asked the group’s agency and the program planning agency for 10,000 tickets to attend the concert. But as the performing hall’s capacity is limited to 3,000 seats, the agencies decided to allocate only about 100 tickets to Song’s fans.

SG Wannabe’s performances are scheduled to be held at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on the concert day. The group’s popularity has been demonstrated as the concerts were sold out just three days after the tickets began selling.

At the upcoming performances, the group will sing its hit songs, such as "Timeless," "Crime and Punishment" and "Gwang," and other OST songs from popular hallyu TV dramas. SG Wannabe began gaining popularity when the songs of popular TV dramas, including "Isn’t It Funny?" from the drama "Hotelier" and "While I’m Living" from the drama "Sad Love Story," became known in Japan. The group has captivated the hearts of many Japanese fans with its outstanding singing ability and beautiful tunes.

An official from SG Wannabe’s agency, GM Planning, said, "SG Wannabe has already won many fans in Japan as it has captivated the hearts of Japanese fans with its music. We therefore expect the group to achieve even more success during their upcoming performances."
