We have investigated the electronic structures of recently discovered superconductor FeSe by soft-x-ray and hard-x-ray photoemission spectroscopy with high-bulk sensitivity. The large Fe3d spectral weight is located in the vicinity of the Fermi level (EF), which is demonstrated to be a coherent quasiparticle peak. Compared with the results of the band-structure calculation with local-density approximation, Fe3d band narrowing and the energy shift of the band toward EF are found, suggesting an importance of the electron correlation effect in FeSe. The self-energy correction provides the larger mass enhancement value (Z-1 ≃3.6) than in Fe-As superconductors and enables us to separate an incoherent part from the spectrum. These features are quite consistent with the results of recent dynamical mean-field calculations, in which the incoherent part is attributed to the lower Hubbard band.
