I would like to start with our sincere appreciation for all your support and trust in us. A lot of things have happened behind the scene for the last three weeks and it was heck of a big challenge for all of us. I should say that it was the first time ever experiencing this level of situation during my professional career.
Many of you have already noticed, but it is regretful to inform you that we have lost two more artists, Eru and Tae Jin Ah. Eru decided to go to the military giving up his US citizenship and notified us that both he and his father would not be able to make it due to that reason. Even if we lost two popular singers(Lee Hyo Ri and Wonder Girls) by that time, we had no choice but releasing him with respect and honoring his voluntary and courageous decision. Regardless of the reason, please generously accept our apology for giving you a confusion and keeping you wait for long.
For the last two weeks, we worked very hard around the clock to make up the holes and finally come up with the list that would ultimately end our casting fro this year's concert. The final names are,
Minwoo (M/from Shinhwa)
Moon Hee Jun (from the legendary group H.O.T)
Chae Yeon, one of the sexy icons in K-pop
Dong Bang Shin Gi(TVXQ)
So Nyeo Shi Dae(Girl's Generation)
Fly To The Sky
Sohn Ho Young
Ock Ju Hyun
Shin Joong Hyun
Yoon Hyung Ju
Kim Se Hwan
Choi Baek Ho
Jung Hoon Hee
MC: Brian & Ock Ju Hyun
I am aware that many of you have expected to see your favorite singers in the final list, but I hope you understand that the names in our list are also great artists who can provide as much excitement and pleasure as the previous year's. Also we have slightly reduced the number of artists this year in order to give each of them more time to perform. Please come and enjoy the show.
I thank you again for all your patience and understanding, and we promise that we would do our best to present the best show possible for you. I'll see you at the Bowl.
All the best,
Director, Special Events
