Junsu who was beside him got the effect and also the rest of members did cry as well.
Tohoshinki who is a top artist in Korea, with a high popularity, had to endure the feeling of being no one as a rookie in Japan. “There’s maybe no one will welcome us.” they ever said this to see how things were going at that time.
“In Japan as a rookie, the first problem was language which we didn’t even understand. We felt uneasy as were separated miles away from our home country, thinking how if no one liked us, etc. While finally 2 years ago, after all those hard working years… on such a huge stage of Budoukan, in front of great number of fans, we couldn’t stand but cried.” – Tohoshinki.
Tohoshinki who currently has been active in all cities around Japan, they had endured anykind of uneasy feeling, restlessness for finally to be in where they are now.
