'I Love You Today', which is currently being broadcast, also proved Cha Eun-woo's hot topic by ranking first in 93 countries in the first week of its release on the global OTT platform Rakuten Viki. Meanwhile, winning the 'Global Icon Award' is expected to once again demonstrate Cha Eun-woo's global power. Cha Eun-woo plans to attend MTV VMAJ 2023 to receive the award and meet local Japanese fans.
