I am pretty sure that all of you are with me in crossing our fingers and toes for a very successful Japanese Debut for our girls. We have been praying and hoping that they will be loved in Japan as much (if not more) as in Korea and internationally. On September 19 and 20, our girls held their very first concert in Yokohama, Japan. We have all seen the pictures uploaded by Japanese Blackjacks and we can surely say that the first day of their concert has been really successful. But guess what guys? Not only did Japanese blackjacks attend their concert, but a lot of celebrities went there as well. Woot! Woot! Here is a rundown of the celebrities who attended NOLZA!
