Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye Successfully Complete “Heartstrings” Fan Meeting in Japan
“Heartstrings” stars Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye are breaking more ground as new Hallyu celebrities in Japan. The two actors top-billed the “Heartstrings” fan meeting held on July 16 at the Tokyo International Forum Hall.
The “Heartstrings” fan meeting took place in two sessions, one at 2:00 p.m. and another at 6:00 p.m. It was the first time for the drama to hold a meeting between its stars and fans.
The events kicked off with Park Shin Hye’s music performance. In the drama, the actress played Lee Kyu Won, a gayageum student who is also a part of The Windflowers, a traditional music group. Members of The Windflowers were also present at the fan meeting. Park Shin Hye performed “Ready to Fight” from the “Heartstrings” OST and showcased a total of three songs.
Jung Yong Hwa pitched in with “Because I Miss You,” his solo song from the soundtrack, encouraging an even warmer reception from the audience.
The fans present joined in singing for the finale, a rendition of the “Heartstrings” theme song, “You’ve Fallen for Me.”
The day reportedly brought in an approximate 10,000 attendees. The Japan fan meeting organizers have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the event to local nonprofit organizations.
“Heartstrings,” which aired in Korea in mid-2011 premiered on Japan’s FujiTV on July 9.
