Jang Geun Suk, Kara and Tohoshinki have been mentioned as possible performers at “Kōhaku Uta Gassen”.
According to Japanese media “Women’s Confidence”, the fanfare is leaning towards the issue of whether Hallyu singers Jang Geun Seuk, Kara and Tohoshinki will be performing at the 62nd NHK “Kōhaku Uta Gassen”.
At this stage, Kara and Tohoshinki are strong contenders to be performers. Other than that, another artiste who has attracted much anticipation is Jang Geun Suk. Jang Geun Suk’s first single “Let me cry”, which went on sale in Japan in April, rose to the #1 position on the Oricon Weekly Chart, showing off his fiery power. Following that, his popularity in Japan has been steadily increasing. According to the Japanese media, discussions with Jang Geun Suk have been difficult so it was still too early to decide on whether he is able to perform.
The keyword for this year’s “Kōhaku Uta Gassen” is “Eastern Japan Earthquake”. It is known that NHK has been liaising with singers from Eastern Japan. Presently, Sen Masao, who is from the earthquake-striken area of Iwata District, has been confirmed to perform at “Kōhaku Uta Gassen” for the first time in 22 years. Other singers who hail from Eastern Japan have also been mentioned as possible performers.
NHK “Kōhaku Uta Gassen” is held annually with a central theme of reviewing and praying together for those issues which have created huge waves in either Japan or in the world in the past year, while listening to the artistes’ songs. It is a year-end song festival representative of Japan.
The 62nd NHK “Kōhaku Uta Gassen” will be broadcast wordwide on December 31st at 7:15pm JST on Japan’s NHK and NHK World.
