A special gift ahead of the end of ‘I Miss You’
The two leading roles of MBC’s drama ‘I Miss You’ have prepared a ‘special gift’.

On the day of the concert
It couldn’t be without fan support activities for the idol
Let’s take a look at how this group of fans supports Kim Junsu
Fan: This time we made our own fans, towels. For Junsu’s concert this time, we especially made a Q version of Junsu. To provide support for his concert this time. We also have activities inside. Also everyone took a picture with a live size poster of Junsu, and we collected all the pictures, and we will bring it to Korea and give it to Junsu’s parents, who will then give to Junsu. We limited this to 500 pictures.
We also worked with other fanclubs to send roses. As well as XIAH NO. 1
To provide support for Junsu, there were fans that day that stamped XIAH on their body
Because of his mom and Junsu’s nickname as “peach”, this time fans prepared these peach packages for him. They hope Junsu could be very healthy
What was really touchy was on the day, there was a fan that suffered a car accident that came to the concert disregarding her foot injury, she had to go to the concert to provide her support for Junsu.
Fan: I originally wanted to save money to go to Korea to watch his musical, because I believe Junsu shines in the musical. As his fan, I have to go support him! But, because of the car accident, I wasn’t able to go.
Reporter: So this time even if your foot is injured, you still have to come watch his concert?
Fan: Because he rarely comes to Taiwan, and it’s his first solo concert. So no matter what I told my mom “I’ll crawl there if I have to!” I have to come see him. Luckily my parents were very supportive. And other fans also helped me. So I successfully came to the venue.
Hope Junsu’s concert today will bring her strength for her to recover her foot injury. Hope this fan will get well soon.
