Se7en gets emotional during his final concerts before enlistment

Se7en sheds tears in front of his fans for the first time in his career!

On the first day of his concert tour, February 7, in Tokyo, Se7en was brought to tears at a special event fans had prepared for the singer.

In order to express his thanks toward his fans, Se7en sang for the first time the track Thank You (Arigato), which he lyricized himself, onstage this day. As soon as he arrived at the part of the lyrics in which he sings ′Arigato′, the 2,000 fans in the venue all held up signs reading ′Arigato Se7en′. At the surprise event, Se7en wasn′t able to hold back his tears, and spilled them onstage.

Se7en is known for his confidence, and has always played the part in his 10-year career. He has never shed tears in front of his fans, making his tears more shocking and leading others to shed their tears with him.

The singer sang his debut single Come Back, as well as his other hits Drips, Hikari, La La La and Passion. A total of 25 tracks were sung onstage.

Label mate 2NE1′s Sandara Park dropped by the venue this day, and Big Bang′s Daesung, who is currently promoting in the country, also appeared backstage to show his support for Se7en. Big Bang′s G-Dragon sent a surprise video message, showing their close ties.

On February 8, Se7en will hold another concert in the same venue, and from February 16-17 he will perform in Kobe. In March he will hold a talk concert with his fans in Korea.

I was wondering why his last concert was not in Korea, but it looks like he is going to have one anyway.

Good luck to him. He always seemed like a really nice guy, and I am going to miss his flirting with TOP.

i wonder how he looks like with his hair shaved off.

it's good that he gets to have a concert in korea, too. his korean fans deserve to see him before he leaves for his military duties.

oh, no, se7en, you're career is so over now :(
ribbon2sky 9th-Feb-2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
ugh

this is so sad

I really hope he'll continue to make music in the future

ticked off that it's his last time to perform before he gets enlisted and yg is sending him off without anything. you've had january and february, yg!! you could have at least done a digital single or a mini album!!!

pressed at yg's (lack of a) plan already and it's only been a month and half since 2013 started.

He's releasing a single in Japan in March. In fact it's during the performance of it in his concert that he cried. ;-;
tempestdance 10th-Feb-2013 02:09 am (UTC)
sorry, I just don't count activities done in Japan....

Se7en I will wait for you! I'll still be a k-pop fan when you come out of the army. Probably. maybe.

at times i still think of him as the cute kid on roller skates.
feeling nostalgic now.

chanqsun 9th-Feb-2013 11:17 pm (UTC)
OMFG NO WHY???!?!?! IM GONNA MISS HIM D':
love_keiko 10th-Feb-2013 12:07 am (UTC)
he deserves SO MUCH better. in the past two years of doing nothing THAT would've been prime to enlist. but NOW?! without even sending us off with a release like rain did?

DAMN U, YG!

I was really surprised to read that he will/is enlisting.
I remember reading somewhere that he had problems with his back so he was spared, to say it like that.
Anyway, I'm really sad he is leaving just like that.
21banged 10th-Feb-2013 02:10 am (UTC)
So sad, I don't want him to goooooo :(

At least after his time's over, he can get married and make perfect babies with Hanbyul <333
sub_divided 10th-Feb-2013 03:34 am (UTC)
If his fanbase grows while he's in the army, he'll have a chance to keep promoting after that, if not he'll become one of the many former artists connected to YG who pop up from time to time for digital singles or collaborations... no one seems to cut ties with that company. Maybe he'll come back as a talk therapist mentor to the next generation.

YG too distracted by his judging on Kpop Superstar to manage his artists properly, but at least Se7en is getting a nice send-off from his fans.

one of my favs, se7en is so underrated. will miss him so much.
mjspice 10th-Feb-2013 02:33 pm (UTC)
Nooooooo SE7EN! T_________T
u_niverse 10th-Feb-2013 02:44 pm (UTC)
i will never forgive YG (and part of se7en's decision maybe) to advance into the States. that pretty much killed his career. i remember the good old days when solo singers reign and he was considered a contender to Rain. and i will always prefer se7en to Rain <3
jaerotic 11th-Feb-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
ia with your last sentence.
b1gay4 10th-Feb-2013 07:03 pm (UTC)
i really hate YG for not giving him more muzik 2 sing after digital poop and evn when i cant sing :-(((( he seems 2 rlly love singing and i wish him a safe enlistment and to comeback vry bright nd happy :`-)))
jaerotic 11th-Feb-2013 04:31 am (UTC)
se7en's earliest albums were my jams when i was young ;~;
i still listen to them every now and then.
his and taebin's solo albums were the kinds of music from yg that i preferred.
