With their upcoming Japan Arena tour, Hallyu star boy group SHINee revealed that they have been diligently studying their Japanese.
Starting April 25th, SHINee will be touring Japan for ‘The First Japan Arena Tour: SHINee World 2012‘. The group is currently promoting in Korea, but even amidst their busy schedule, they have been hitting the books and learning Japanese.
Although they have already studied the language, the members revealed that they wanted to become more fluent for their tour in order to be closer to their Japanese fans.
On March 19th, SHINee released their Korean mini-album ‘Sherlock‘ and started promotions. However, because of the upcoming tour, the group decided to cut their promotions short to only 4 weeks.
During a fansigning event, member Taemin stated, “We are disappointed that our Korean promotion is short, but after our Japanese activities, we plan on releasing an album later this year, so please wait for us.”
Taemin added about the Japanese tour, “We are concurrently practicing for our Korean promotions and our Japanese tour next month. We will try our best to impress on the Japanese stage, so please anticipate our performance.”
SHINee’s Japanese tour, which starts on April 25th, will start in Fukuoka and then head towards Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, Tokyo, and Hiroshima.
