The rebroadcast of the drama, newly airing on Fuji TV, reignited Jung Yong Hwa's popularity in Japan. '"Heartstrings" originally aired in Korea from June to August of last year. The story line revolved around the lives of two college students, 'Lee Shin' played by Jung and 'Lee Kyu Won', portrayed by Park, both with dreams of becoming musicians. In addition, Jung Yong Hwa's self-composed track for the drama, 'Because I Miss You' earned wide-spread love and attention from viewers since the airing of the drama last year.
The fan meeting was held at the Tokyo International Forum on July 16th, and was split into two sessions which both took place in one day. Both sessions, each accommodating 5000 seats, sold out shortly before the date of the event. Fans were excited to see Jung & Park together again after such a long time. Many fans who attened the even remarked on the two actors' apparently close friendship and how Jung Yong Hwa seemed to transform back into his character 'Lee Shin' right before their eyes during the special fan meeting.
Fans were treated to a special video reel, behind-the-scenes footage of "Heartstrings," along with talk segments featuring the two leads in interviews and other activities. There was also a special performance prepared especially for fans to better get to know their favorite actors. During the earlier session of the fan meeting, fans report that Jung performed a guitar instrumental of "Father & Son," "Because, I Miss You," and the performance of their duet song, "You've Fallen for Me."
