Jung-joo gets fearful; Cheol-ki’s son is chased

Kang Dae Sung, member of the four-member idol boy music group sensation Big Bang had a show for his fans at Hawaii Theatre last weekend.

The Hawaii show ends his Dna Tour as many of his fans from Japan flew to Hawaii on a tour package. The show started at 5 p.m. with Dae Sung speaking fluently in Japanese for most of the show.

After an hour of answering fans’ top questions and audience interaction, he changed and performed about six songs in Japanese with an encore ballad song. The audience was filled with Dae Sung personalized lights, and homemade banners written in Japanese and Korean.

Dae Sung had a game with selected audience using the shaka sign along with a montage of photos of him around the island of Oahu. He did mention that he enjoyed the shrimp trucks in the north shore area.
