On July 14, LINE went public on the New York Stock Exchange.

To celebrate the occasion, we wanted to bring along the LINE community for the trip and sent Brown on a mission to carry the thoughts and feelings of LINE users to the Big Apple, from a list of messages submitted by users around the world.

From over hundreds submissions, we picked out 32 messages to send to New York.

The messages would go up in no other place than at "The Crossroads of the World" – Times Square. 

So did Brown successfully accomplish his mission? Find out in the photos below!


Tagging along with Brown were Cony, James, and CHOCO, who handed out balloons to the square's visitors.

The messages were displayed for all the world to see in Times Square, "The Crossroads of the World."

A wide variety of messages went up that day.

From messages going out to significant others,

Behind our slogan, "CLOSING THE DISTANCE," we at LINE strive to help all our users connect with the people and things that matter most to them.

We hope you will continue using LINE for many years to come.
