“When I was rehearsing, I felt nervous about the first concert in one and a half years,” Cho said to the audience during the concert. “But now I feel comfortable as if I was home. Let’s sing, dance, shout, and clap with me.”

The star performed eight new tracks from his 19th album, his first release in ten years, including “Bounce” which has now topped the domestic music charts.

Countless hit songs in his 45-year music career including “Red Dragonfly” and “Let’s Go on a Trip” brought the concert to a climax, plunging the fans into a frenzy.

The “Hello” concert tour will continue in Daejeon on June 8, Uijeongbu in Gyeonggi-do (Gyeonggi Province) on June 15, Jinju in Gyeongsangnam-do (South Gyeongsang Province) on June 22, and Daegu on June 29-30.
