To promote KBS2 TV's "Boys over Flower", F4 members and Goo Hye Sun arrived in Tokyo on the 15th.

At the fan meeting, Lee Min Ho was asked "Do you have any special memories of Japan", his answer caused laughter in the studio. "2 years ago I came here with my friends but because we didn't know the cabs were expensive, so we took a cab from the airport all the way to Shibuya. The cab fare was very memorable."

Goo Hye Sun was asked "Who do you like most in F4", her answer was "Lee Min Ho and Kim Hyun Joong". They then participated in a recording of Fuji TV's variety show "SMAP X SMAP", and will have a press conference and fan meeting on the 16th at 2pm and 7pm respectively, at Tokyo's JBC Hall, before returning to Korea around the 20th.
