The group NewJeans took over the Tokyo Dome area in Japan. The media featured New Genes on the front page, and hundreds of people lined up at the 'Supernatural' pop-up.

According to the agency ADOR on the 27th, local media such as Sponichi, Sports Hochi, Sankei Sports, Daily Sports, and Tokyo Chunichi Sports produced a special edition of New Genes.

These newspapers introduced New Genes as “a five-member Korean group boasting global popularity” and “an attractive group with high musicality and energetic and cool performances.” In addition, the fact that New Jeans entered the Tokyo Dome as a complete group just 5 days after their Japanese debut was given special attention, highlighting their huge popularity.

As the start of 'Bunnies Camp 2024 Tokyo Dome' was imminent, some convenience stores sold out of the New Jeans special edition, and some fans were seen regretfully turning away.

This Tokyo Dome fan meeting attracted a lot of attention as it was New Jeans' first meeting with a large group of fans after releasing their Japanese debut single 'Supernatural' on the 21st.

Even though it was a weekday event on the 26th and 27th, tickets for all performances were sold out early, and requests for additional seats were flooded, so seats with restricted visibility were released on the day of the performance. An Adore official said on this day, “The demand for restricted-view seats was higher than initially expected, so we added a small number of seats.”

The area around Tokyo Dome was so crowded that there was literally no room to move. The fans who flocked to support New Jeans in their own way using New Jeans official merch such as T-shirts, bags, key rings, fans, and binky sticks. New Jeans songs continued to play in nearby restaurants and stores.

The pop-up store located in the middle of Shibuya was also heating up. Line Friends Square Shibuya's 'Supernatural POP-UP' had over 600 people waiting even before opening, and the line extended beyond Yoyogi Park. On the first day of opening (the 26th), advance reservations for pop-up visits were limited to 5 minutes, and the maximum number of admissions on the day was limited within 1 hour of opening the pop-up. IPX (formerly Line Friends) said, “We were surprised that the response from fans was much hotter than expected,” and added, “We are preparing for pre-orders in a hurry.”
