As announced, Lee Junki was in Japan over the weekend to perform for fans in Kobe and Yokohama for another series of fan concerts that seated 8,000 attendees.
This event was called “Lee Junki 2009 in Japan for Splendor,” which follows his last series of fan concerts called Episode 2: “The Mask.” Neither title makes a whole lot of sense, but hey, it’s Lee Junki, and a Junki who made perfect sense would be boring.
In addition to songs from his single album “J-Style,” he also sang songs from several of the OSTs of his dramas: in Kobe on the 18th, he sang “Foolish Heart” [미련한 가슴아] from Time of Dog and Wolf, and on the 19th he performed Iljimae soundtrack song “Flower’s Message” [화신].
Apparently, Lee Junki came to the Yokohama concert dressed in a yellow bear costume (er?) and arrived at the entrance an hour prior to the concert’s start, where 5,000 fans waited to enter. Along with one other person, he took photos with the fans as though he were an amusement park character. It wasn’t until later when he came out in costume that fans realized he’d been the one they’d taken photos with. Not too surprisingly, the whole idea is credited to Lee Junki himself. Oh, wacky, weird Lee Junki, never change!
