I was informed that Rafał read messages from Japanese fans that were posted on this blog, under the title of "Take a good rest, Rafał-san - messages from Japanese fans" dated Jan. 31.
"Rafał was very moved by all the words of support, encouragement and prayer from the fans and is very grateful for them". "He expressed his thanks to the Japanese fans for their supportive reaction and understanding", according to a source close to the artist.

I also believe that the wishes are shared with his fans in Korea.
Cancellation notice of Blechacz's recital by Seoul Arts Center, Feb. 2
Cancellation notice in details (Korean)
The notice says that Blechacz expressed his thanks to Korean audience for having interest in his recital and apology for causing disappointment by the cancellation.
Let me copy the comment from yesterday's post by a Korean fan;
"Oh my god I really truly sincerely hope him get better soon. If I can I'd like to send all of healthy food I could get to him till he feels good again. Every time I felt sad, discouraged or got sick I heard Blechacz's music only and got new strength. But it makes me sad that all I can do is just wishing him recover soon when he sicks. Blechacz can come to Korea anytime he wants. The most important thing is his health absolutely. -anonymous Korean fan"
I believe the prayer has been heard.
I was informed that he still has some fever but not so high as before and his appetite is improving.
Followings are links to Internet news about Blechacz in Korea that the anonymous Korean fan above-mentioned sent to this blog a few days ago.
She said each site with English translation that she made can show that "so many Korean fans have been excited about him and his recital for so long".
