Kim Dongwan who hasn't met with fans in such a long time held a comeback fan meeting at the Sangmyeon Art Center Gyedan Hall on December 9, 2010 at 8:00pm. He was just recently discharged from military duty on December 7, 2010. This would make his first official and very memorable activity.
Dongwan also held his last concert with fans prior to starting his short separation in 2008 before joining military service. Dongwan will soon begin his Japan activities but not before meeting his Korean fans.
Despite the freezing weather more than 1,000 faithful fans proved his hot popularity. Fans from all over Asia gathered in one place to cheer Kim Dongwan on with his new activities.
"It's been a long time. I'm happy to inform you that I'm healthy. I haven't met with you guys in a long time so I feel good that I can talk to you," Dongwan stated as his first greetings.
In today's fan meeting, Kim Dongwan shared with fans memories of past activities and many stories. He also shared his stories about military service. The two years of memories created with fans were also shared with fans.
Dongwan hasn't stood on stage in a long time. He sang a total of six songs which included "Secret", "Truth" and "More Than Words", a song from the group Extreme.
After the end of this event, Kim Dongwan has two weeks of planned activities in Japan. "After finishing my activities in Japan I want to come back to Korea. I want to meet you next year via broadcast. I want to work harder and be closer to my fans," is Dongwan's aspiration.
Before the fanmeeting Dongwan held a press conference, where he also spoke about his desires and aspirations. "I feel very confident. Rather than a special character I would like to play an 'average man'. I plan to work very hard." he stated with confidence.
Dongwan finished his comeback fan meeting with great success. His first Japanese solo album titled "Kim Dongwan Japan Best Premium" will be released on December 15, 2010 followed by a fan meeting with Japanese fans on December 18, and a schedule of TV live appearance for the next two weeks. This will be beginning of his official activities.
Dongwan returned to civilian status after being discharged on December 7, 2010 from his two year of mandatory military service where he served as a public officer. Dongwan also signed an exclusive contract with fellow Shinhwa member Shin Hyesung's management company Live Works Entertainment Company.
I'm glad the fan meeting went well. Welcome back Dongwan!
