He participated in DaTV’s charity event, “Smile Project” which many top stars from Asia joined.
This charity event is to contribute to the disadvantaged children in Asia. It is just a small project but it will give hope for them. I hope that there will be more and more projects with good objectives like this in future. I would like to have another opportunities to join.
Question: What is your impression of Tokyo Dome?
Leader : It was an honor to be on such a huge stage of Tokyo Dome. I have been dreaming of performance at Tokyo Dome, and therefore, my dream came true.I would like to do my best so that I will be able to have an exclusive concert there in the future. (While he was talking about his dream about Tokyo Dome, his eyes sparkled )
** Be nice to me performance **
Question: What kind of impression about Japanese fans do you have?
Leader : I am impressed that they became so passionate. When we had a Concert in Japan, they just quietly applauded. But with growing popularity of Kpop here in Japan, they are now passionate as much as Koreans. As I felt such drastic change directly, I was able to enjoy the performance by myself. (* Many Japanese fans screamed “Leader!” each time he was on a stage. Actually, the majority of penlight was green!)
Question: What made you to decide to join this project ?
Leader :I have been recently interested in charity event and I happened to hear about Tokyo Dome charity event. For me, it was a good opportunity as I have been dreaming of stage at Dome.

Question : What kind of charity event, would you like to participate ?Leader : Not only for smile project, I would like to do something for children, as I have many opportunities to visit foreign countries.
