Uhm Ki-joon woos his Japanese fans


Musical actor Uhm Ki-joon held his first Japanese fan meet last week. His agency Sidus HQ said that more than 2,200 fans turned up to see Uhm in person from Wednesday to Thursday in Tokyo.

The event was titled “Changes,” in line with Uhm’s nickname of “Man with a Thousand Faces,” - a reference to his wide-ranging talents as a musical and TV actor. To entertain fans, Uhm talked about behind-the-scene moments and also screened greetings from his “Closer” co-star Moon Geun-young and “Jack the Ripper” colleague Yoo Joon-sang.

In addition, a congratulatory video message from Park Bo-young, whom Uhm had previously listed as his ideal girl, was played.

The second night of the fan meet took on a more autobiographical approach as Uhm told his life story.

The 36-year-old also took the time to do what he does best: sing. He performed some of his hits from the musicals “The Sorrows of a Young Werther,” “Finding Mr. Kim” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.”
