When he sang the last song ‘Fallen Leaves,” fans began crying. After the concert finished, they shook the banner which said “Thank you for coming. Please come back again. I love you.”
After the concert, Huanita(19.female) said, “I hope Junsu could feel our love. I eat Korean food and study Korean two hours a day because I want to feel more familiar to him.” And Monse(19.female) said, “It took about 6 hours to get to the venue by a bus rent by 50 members of a fanbase that I’m running.”
A day before the concert, as many as 500 fans gathered and held a festival at the Mexico Park. With singing the Mexican traditional song Besame Mucho, the fans raised up colorful banners and Korean flags to welcome Kim Junsu. And, Alexis Repurt from a Mexican private broadcast service TV Azteca said, “American pop is still dominant, but we have to pay attention to K-pop gaining its ground.”
