YG Entertainment’s new boy group WINNER is opening their first official fan event in Japan next week, YG said on Wednesday.

The five-member group, formed of Kang Seung Yoon, Lee Seung Hoon, Kim Jin Woo, Song Min Ho, and Nam Tae Hyun, will participate in the event dubbed “Hello! WINNER” at Osaka’s shopping mall Sen-ri-le-lu-shi next Monday.

Members of WINNER, YG’s first boy group in eight years, will have a talk session and present a self-introducing card named ‘Hello! Card’ to 300 selected fans on site.

The soon-to-debut group made their first appearance in the Saitama Seibu Dome legs of Big Bang’s on-going Japan tour two weeks ago, set to heat up their labelmates’ shows again at Osaka Kyocera Dome this weekend.

WINNER confirmed their official debut after winning Mnet’s survival TV show “WIN: Who Is Next” last month.
