KPOP-TV’s Min had the opportunity to sit down and interview the legendary Yoshiki of the Japanese rock band X Japan.

Yoshiki visited San Francisco for a screening of the documentary We Are X, which chronicles the strengths and tragedies of X Japan. Fans who attended this event also got a chance to ask Yoshiki questions and enjoyed a piano performance by him as well.

As Min sat down with Yoshiki, he discussed the work that went into the documentary. He also shared details about his recent kimono project, Yoshikimono, and his collaboration with singer Seiko Matsuda.

What advice can we take away from the legend himself?  “Nothing is impossible… keep your dream alive,” says Yoshiki.
