Youngji had her very first solo Japan fanmeeting, 'YOUNGJI FANMEETING 2016 ~Nice to see U~' on July 2nd (Saturday) at Shinagawa Prince Hotel Stellar Bar in Tokyo! The fanmeeting was divided into two sessions, and right after each session, Youngji's special fansigning event and APRIL's special meet & greet were held separately.

Youngji came to Japan on the first day of July, while APRIL which still had schedule to perform on the rainy day at Cultwo Show Public Broadcast had to fly off to Japan on the next day. Unfortunately, APRIL's Hyunjoo couldn't join because she's still resting due to her health issueㅠㅠ

As soon as Youngji arrived safely in Japan, she already had to go for an interview schedule with K-STYLE. She also greeted J-Kamilias via KARA JAPAN OFFICIAL FANCLUB.

Besides Kamilias, there was also FineApples attending the fanmeeting as the guest for the fanmeeting was APRIL It could be said it was APRIL's turn to help their label mate senior Youngji since she had MC-ed and performed before, at APRIL's 1st Japan Fanmeeting back on March 6th :)

The set list (6 KARA songs & 1 APRIL song)
(It's the same for 2 sessions)
1. Orion (Youngji)
2. So Good (Youngji)
3. Tinker Bell (APRIL)
4. Bye Bye Happy Days (KARASIA 2015 ver.) (Youngji)
5. Honey (APRIL & Youngji)
6. Go Go Summer (Youngji & APRIL)
7. Jet Coaster Love (Youngji & APRIL)

There were also a Q&A corner and a situation drama corner for her to communicate more with the fans. Youngji also gave away her signed polaroids during her 'So Good' performance.

The unexpected thing was that Gyuri and Seungyeon sent their support messages for her 1st Japan fanmeeting through video which was being shown at the fanmeeting, making Youngji and the fans touched and teared up. After the video messages ended, Youngji told the fans that honestly the night before the fanmeeting, she actually called the unnies, but they didn't say anything about it, they only said ''Do your best at the fanmeeting!'', so seeing the video messages that day from them was really a surpriseㅜ She told the fans that she really loves the unnies, and asked the fans to support them as wellㅜㅜㅠ

Didn't forget to take several selcas with the MC Fujiwara Tomoki (ex A'st1 member who was under DSP^^)

Youngji went back to Korea the next day in the morning, and not long after she arrived in Korea, she already had to fly off to Thailand. [She's one of the cast of tvN drama 'Oh Haeyoung Again', and since the drama was a big hit, the team (the cast + the crew) was scheduled to leave for Phuket on vacation as a reward for their efforts in the drama :ahmagah: ]

Meanwhile, APRIL still had short chatting event with J-FineApples and "Asia Saishuu Joshi" fansign. They went back to Korea at night.

(On 4th, the maknae Jinsol had a recording schedule for JTBC Girl Spirit and on 5th APRIL had schedule to perform at Miral Welfare Foundation 'Share Energy' Event as they are the Youth Ambassador for the Miral Welfare Foundation.)




I just hope the best for all of them

I was surprised to the choice of old songs Kara. But then I have understood that it because of choreography. YoungJi together with April, is five girls on a scene. It won't turn out to dance songs of an era Kara-4. It should remake choreography, and it doesn't make sense for meeting. It was logical to choose songs Kara-5.
YoungJi surprisingly harmoniously looks together with April. They are even strongly similar on early Kara-5. DSP can have a desire to include YoungJi in structure April as the leader. I could love this idea if for April have a little changed a concept and repertoire of songs. It can be as Kara 2.0, but with the name April. That is April which will really replace Kara as group of the third generation. At the moment April looks rather as replacement of the Rainbow. 
Perhaps DSP consider this idea. Combining performances of YoungJi and April. And fans get used to see them together. It is more real than start of new group: for this DSP won't have finance now.
