Nagoya Concert The last marvelous concert for 2014 World tour (16/9/2014)


The last concert for this year was really successful .. and many fans went to the venue despite they weren’t have the ticket .. but they wanted to see and support our only one also Everyone wanted to give a gift for KHJ .. Nagoya’s concert venue capacity is only 3,000 people but the number of applicants were over than 10,000! the tickets were totally sold out .. there weren’t any ticket to sold anywhere at all!

(Tweet) updates .. HJ’s arrival to Japan:

1- HJ took off his cap & waved to the fans again and again .. even his eyes contacted with some fans when he was walking.
2- Nagoya manager told the fans “no photo, no video, no hand shake but they can pass the letters to him” .. So, the fans asked the manager to make HJ walk slowly at Nagoya airport … Manager answered “okay.. But HJ’s leg sooo long” So, he’s so fast at walking.
3- He has a new cell phone 😀 .. and he is putting a wallpaper too .. really he is so sweet.
Cr: @tomomon2
I think this is the wall paper that he was putting on his phone .10696471_10154760018410508_2029081290498082069_n

Excerpt from what happened on 16/9/2014 :

1- He sang GOODBYE & Hot Sun from Hot sun Album.
2- He didn’t wore the World Tour (Japan concert) T-shirt.
cr:@loving_khj

3- One of the most touching moments was .. During the last part of “HEAT” the music cut off suddenly but fans continued singing a cappella (which mean without instrumental accompaniment) with HJ till the end … then HJ said, ‘This wasn’t on purpose. really it was a mistake.’
4- When he was picking a lucky fan .. to up the stage for I’m Your Man, he asked “Is there anyone who’s the same age as me” .. many fans raised up their hands. Then he jokingly said.. ‘if you lie, you’re gonna be punished’ .. Isn’t he so sweet?!
cr: @5StarsAs1

5- When He chose the girl .. which he will sing ‘I’m Your Man’ for her .. he asked if she’s elder sis .. also he allowed her to sing a song & gave her a bottle of water to drink but the girl couldn’t do that .. so, HJ just drunk then gave her a hug and they took a photo together .. also HJ gave her the flower bouquet as well as they took a video together .. girl kept shaking her head, looked so nervous :D.
Cr: 猫的天使 .. trans by: Shawnkey0606 & cr: @爱贤21度C

6- HJ said ” Since I was born as KHJ, I thought that it is my own life, but it’s not true. My life is not only for my own .. but also for yours as well … He also said ” after I come back to Korea, I will work on to create good music” .. “Then I will see you again with better music. Bye now! See you again!”.
cr: @lafone0606

7- after he sang “I’m Yours” he said : I Have prepared something special for everyone in Nagoya. “The reason that I live” also he said During these 4 months (The World Tours) I met up with fans from different countries from Jun to September .. because of the support that everyone gave me, I didn’t collapse and I am able to stay on my feet and did not fall … in another way “Good things & bad things happened, but because of fans around the world I didn’t fall & I was able to hold on” (which mean he is thankful to everyone, everyone is the reason that he stay alive).
cr: @soso_life_ & @kazum39

8- He Walked through the crowd during Kiss Kiss .. and ended the song sitting on edge of stage.
9- He Walked through the 1st floor crowd (twice over 2 sections!) on the way up stage singing His Habit.
10- Walked to the crowd again at the end of Beauty Beauty & Do You Like That … fans are going crazy :D.
cr: @coriibean / @loving_khj

11- when HJ was singing ‘Please’ all the fans got excited because they thought that he will take his T-shirt off .. and when they saw him stay down .. they thought he will take it off finally , but he just pretended 😀 😀 and Didn’t undress !!!!
Male dancers divided into two parts only two men took off their clothes.
PS: Oppa is so cute to play joke with fans.
Cr: @猫的天使 .. trans cr: @Shawnkey0606

12- before leaving stage he said, “aishiteru” which mean I love you in Japanese and looked at fans with a emotion deeply.

13- when he was leaving “Nagoya Century Hall” all the car windows were open widely ..
