Minwoo Kang _ First, I came to Japan for the performance and then, through having this kind of meeting with fans who love Universal Ballet, I have now an attachment to Japan. And today, I’m looking forward to this Japanese food dinner at Shibuya.
Seunghyun Lee _ Thank you for your constant support. Even though we can’t meet directly, I always feel your warm support.
Minwoo Kang _ The first meeting at Shin-Okubo and this time, at Shibuya. We’ll probably have a 3rd meeting chance. Hope we’ll meet soon. First I have to cure my injury and prepare for the performance. I’ll do my best.
