Basketball Stars to Sing for Prospective Players

Basketball stars such as Huh Jae, Kang Dong Hi, Lee Sang Min, and Chun Hee Chul will make a charity album entitled 'Star Wars' for future basketball stars struggling with poverty.
The album, expected in stores around June 20, consists of 14 songs including three ensemble pieces.
Huh will record trot-style music and Woo Ji Won will croon a standard ballad while Chun will perform more modern dance and rap music.
The record's organizer, Park Myong Ho, said, 'The stars' talents have already been proven in Karaoche. Each 'singer' will have ten hours of recording after being trained by Ko Suk Young, a member of the group E.O.S..'
He added that some players could even earn money on the side through singing, although he does not suggest they quit the basketball court just yet.
The stars agreed to work for free and 30 percent of all sales will go to a charity fund for needy teenagers dreaming of being basketball players.
