On March 19, KAT-TUN appeared at a secret LINE LIVE and announced that the fan club anniversary event “KAT-TUN 2018 FIRST IMPRESSION “Ask Yourself” to be held on March 22 will be streamed exclusively on LINE LIVE.
For a short 8 minutes at 11 pm on March 19, KAT-TUN appeared at a secret LINE LIVE whose contents and guests were not disclosed until the actual event. A preliminary announcement only included a silhouette of a 3 – person group and a notice of an “important announcement”. Of course by now, Johnnys fans are experts in identifying the silhouettes of their fave groups’ profiles and so the expectation that KAT-TUN will be doing a LINE LIVE has been raised. When the live started, the three members appeared one after the other and communicated with fans.
The group will be releasing their first single after their ‘charging period’ titled “Ask Yourself” on April 18 and will be holding Tokyo Dome performances on April 20 – 22. The announcement of the anniversary event live stream prompted a flurry of excited and surprised comments from fans. During the 15 minute frame of KAT-TUN’s LINE LIVE, it has gained more than 81,000 comments.
