A brief live report (English&日本語)of Bright Win 1st Fan Meeting in JAPAN on 9th Oct. 2021.

Bright and Win Hold Their First Online Live Event for Fans in Japan!

GMMTV's fan events such as "Global Fan Meetings" and "Kun-gu 2gether Live on Stage" have always attracted lots of fans. This year's event was Bright and Win’s first-ever event for fans in Japan. This special news flash provides a report on some of the things that happened during the event.
While it won’t be possible for overseas stars to visit Japan in person for a while yet, this big event really played an important role in helping to bring Thailand and Japan closer together.

The theme chosen by GMMTV for this latest event was "The Seasons of Japan". The audience was already fully charged up and in high spirits before the event, wondering how Bright and Win viewed Japan’s seasons and how they would express them through their performances.

The screen went black for a moment, and then the words "TAKE OFF" suddenly appeared in big letters. In the opening sequence Bright and Win appeared on screen in a cute airplane taking off from Thailand and then finally touching down in Japan!
The first song was "Kan Goo", a song from the drama "2gether", sung by Bright and Win as a duet. Just by hearing the intro to the memorable song fans instantly relived scenes from the drama in their mind. This time, the two of them sang together to mark the special occasion. The two enjoyed harmonizing together in front of images of spring in Japan like cherry blossoms and a Mt.Fuji.

After they finished singing, they were met on stage by MCs Godji, and Hymn, who also served as interpreter for the event. The 200 lucky fans who had gathered at the special venue in Japan for the event were shown on a huge screen above the stage.
Godji then said, "Hello from Thailand and welcome to our first-ever event for fans in Japan. Although we’re far apart, our hearts are connected!” Bright and Win smiled as they nodded in agreement.

Bright and Win then each greeted their Japanese fans. The lucky fans shown on the screen couldn't hide their delight as Bright and Win greeted fans partly in Japanese. Fans were able to write messages using a special chat screen, and the flurry of messages showed that the fans watching from home were just as excited.

At the opening, they talked about recommended spots and experiences in Thailand.
Win recommended Siam, an area in the center of Bangkok where many young people gather to enjoy gourmet food, and Bright recommended Phuket, a resort town in the south of the country, to experience the sea and the mountains.

The theme of the second song was "Winter". Win showed up in a Kimono-inspired outfit, holding an umbrella. "Ten Years Later" from the movie "2gether THE MOVIE", which was released in theaters in Japan, had a romantic image of Japanese hot spring resort and snow, and the song "I'll still be with you 10, 20, 30 years from now" also won the hearts of the fans.

The third song Bright sang was "Kod Tee (One Hug)".
With the image of "summer" in Japan, Bright surprised the fans with gorgeous images and gimmicks based on his favorite city, Tokyo.

At this point, the hashtag #BrightWinJAPAN became the number one trending topic on Twitter! This was a testament to the high profile of this event, which also involved fans from overseas.
The conversation then turned to the works that Bright and Win have co-starred in: the "2gether" drama series, "2gether THE MOVIE", and the "F4: Thailand: BOYS OVER FLOWERS” drama series, which will be broadcast in Japan this year.

When asked how he felt about the great response that the 2gether drama series and movie had received in Japan, Bright replied: "We didn't expect so many people to watch them. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from fans in Japan. I'm always very grateful for that”. Then they received a surprise video featured: Mike, who played the role of Man; Toptap, who played Type; Drake, who played Mil; Frank, who played Phukong; Love, who played Pear; and Gunsmile, who played Boss.

Godji then touched on Bright and Win’s next work, “F4: Thailand: BOYS OVER FLOWERS” (the Thai version of “BOYS OVER FLOWERS”), and asked them to talk about their co-stars Dew and Nani. At this point there was another surprise! A video message from Dew and Nani! Bright said, "I put all my energy into this drama, so I hope everyone will watch it.

There were also many challenges for the fans this time. In one of the corners, a game was held to guess what the picture drawn by fans. Bright was the first to answer "Tom Yum Kung!", and the fans were with big smiles on their faces, creating a friendly atmosphere throughout the event.

The last theme was "Autumn".
The song was "Yang Koo Gun (Still Together)" from the drama "Still 2gether".
As a surprise for Japan, they sang some of the Thai lyrics in Japanese!
You can see that they practiced a lot for the fans. The Japanese fans who wrote in the comments could not hide their surprise. Some of the fans were watching with tears in their eyes.

When the song ended, a surprise video from a Japanese fan was shown.
Various images that Japanese fans sent were shown on the screen, and at the end, they became mosaic art of the two faces. At the end of the video, the catchphrase "Let's WIN a BRIGHT future 2gether", also created by Japanese fans, appeared on the screen, and the two of them stared at the screen earnestly, accepting the love from Japanese fans.

When they were asked for a final message, they picked up the microphone to express their gratitude to their Japanese fans. The words that came out of their mouths were in Japanese! The show came to an end with each of them giving a heartfelt message that they had prepared.

Around 12,000 fans all around Japan were filled with emotion as they watched the curtain come down on this big one-night-only show, bringing Bright and Win’s first live event for fans in Japan to a close.
