T.O.P’s Premium Event of ‘Commitment’ in Japan attracts 100,000: Huge success
[파이낸셜뉴스 스타엔 최현정 기자] BIGBANG’s T.O.P successfully wrapped up the Premium Event held in Japan in celebration of the film ‘Commitment’ being released in the country.
At the Premium Event of ‘Commitment release’ held in Japan’s Pacific Yokohama on Nov 20, T.O.P took part in his very first solo event in Japan, joined by 100,000 local participants.
On the day, T.O.P participated in many events like reading out his hand-written letter to the fans, and a special talk session where he told the fans the details of behind-the-scenes of the film that had many action scenes. This was the first event to be held since the release of ‘Commitment’.
In his letter that he read out, he wrote, “The film ‘Commitment’ is where I appear before you as an actor, not a musician, for the first time in 3 years,” and added, “I hope the character Lee Myung Hoon can be conveyed to you all. Your cheering is a big source of power for me. I appreciate your continuous support.”
‘Commitment’ starring T.O.P draws on a story of the 19-year-old main character Lee Myung Hoon who accepts an offer to become a killer in South Korea to save his only family, his sister. This is his first movie in 3 years.
T.O.P is praised for his expression of powerful emotions of a 19-year-old boy whose fate does not unravel the way he imagined it would.
‘Commitment’ has already proven its immense popularity by attracting a sensational 1 million moviegoers in just 15 days after its release, and the number is continuously increasing while competing with other huge Hollywood films.
At the same time, T.O.P is busily pursuing his musical career since the release of his new solo song ‘Doom Dada’ on Nov 15.
His new song ‘Doom Dada’ knocked down 10 music charts on major South Korean music websites and ranked #1 in iTunes of 5 different countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Macau, and Malaysia.
Meanwhile, T.O.P will reveal the performance of ‘Doom Dada’ for the first time on television, when the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards held in Hong Kong is aired on Nov 22 (Friday).
