Wheesung nationwide tour


Ehm, I found this news on Innolife and it is all in Japanese. I’ve tried waiting for SINA to have the Chinese article so I don’t have the pains of translating the Japanese article but :/ … since my Japanese is not really up to the level of translation yet, I have to pick out the nouns/verbs/words one by one and finding each of their meaning through the online dictionary – took me quite some time to compile the English meaning. Anyway, the translation below may not be 100% accurate. I have to err…guess the majority of the time. So if there’s any error, please point it out so that I can correct them (and learn too 🙂 , domo arigatou gozaimasu). I have included the original Japanese article for cross-referencing. I also included the Korean information of the upcoming concerts in Daegu and Daejeon. There’s no information on Busan or the other 5 cities yet.

Translation Notes:

*1 – I’m not sure what’s “10回にわたった” means…I know “10回” means 10 times but 10 times of what? Maybe, he will tour for 10 cities altogether ??? Or the looking at the schedule for his concerts, I’m also guessing that 5 cities x 2 shows = 10 times ?

*2 – OK, there’s a mention of the word “Fans” here. I’m actually not sure if the fans requested the planning to company to ask Wheesung for live tours in their area or the planning company itself did the request. Anybody can clarify?

*3 – I roughly understand the first of the sentence, which it said that Wheesung is currently busy with promoting his 5th album, but the second part, after trying to translate the part into English – it kinda turns out very weird (in meaning) for me. I’m guessing that they meant that they are worried in how to schedule his nation tours alongside his 5th album promotions.

*4 – not very sure if the sentence meant he will include more “movements” in his concerts or he will also take part in planning out the concert’s overall music/choregraphy/scenario settings/etc. Anyway, I’m guessing he will do his best to give an excellent concert for everyone 😀
