Due to Tokyo audiences’ enthusiastic support, every performance of musical “Goong” held at Tokyo International Forum Hall C that can accommodate 1,500 people sold out. The requests for additional performances kept coming in because the running time of the musical was too short. As a result of the compliments received, after the 2011 performances in Kyoto and Tokyo, “Goong” will be held for the third time in Tokyo, Japan in August 2012, setting a new box office record of Korean musicals.

The producer of G8 (the production company of “Goong”) expressed, “During the last musical performance of ‘Goong’ that was held on 30th December, 2011, the audiences threw paper planes towards the stage to express their gratitude and congratulations. Musical actors & actresses and the production staff were all deeply moved. Every performer and audience couldn’t help but shed their tears. Everyone in the theatre was crying.”
