Idol group INFINITE has captivated the hearts of their Japanese fans.
The members of INFINITE met with 3,000 of their Japanese fans at a special event held at the infamous Tokyo Dome on April 26th to commemorate their second Japanese single ‘Be Mine‘.
The audience immediately went wild as the boys stepped on stage to perform “Be Mine“, a single that quickly climbed to #2 on the Oricon Weekly Chart, selling over 50,000 copies.
“We heard the news on the plane and we were extremely shocked,” member Woohyun said in regards to ranking high on the Oricon, while leader Sunggyu added, “We could hardly believe it, we are so excited. This is all thanks to our fans. We will return the favor with an awesome performance.”
A surprise birthday party also took place for member Sunggyu who turned 24 on April 28th. “I had no idea a celebration would take place. Thank you so much,” he said.
“I want to be able to release a new album in both Korea and Japan this year,” he added. “We will continue to work hard and develop.”
The boys continued the event by performing “Julia” and “BTD” off their single album, and towards the end, member Dongwoo remarked, “Thank you to everyone who looked forward to this. We will continue to march onward.”
The members stepped down from the stage, but the applause from the fans would not die down. Responding to their cheers, the boys stepped back on stage to put on an unplanned, spontaneous performance of “Paradise“.
After wrapping up the event in Tokyo, the boys held the same event in Osaka on the 27th, as well in Fukuoka on April 30th, drawing a total of 7,000 fans altogether.
In related news, INFINITE is planning to make a comeback in Korea in May, and earlier today they updated their official website with a new logo hand brushed in Korean calligraphy style to further heighten the anticipation of their fans.
