Back in January 2020, Kim released his first domestic album in over four years, titled ‘Love Song’. The singer was originally set to embark on a tour of Asia following the album’s release, but tour dates were later postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The JYJ star has since released a string of Japanese-language singles and albums in the meantime.
In other K-pop news, NCT sub-unit NCT 127 have announced that they will be bringing their ongoing ‘Neo City – The Link’ concert tour to Singapore next month. Set to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the upcoming show will be NCT 127’s second time in the city-state, following their ‘Neo City – The Origin’ tour in 2019.
Notably, NCT 127’s forthcoming show will also mark the first K-pop concert held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
