Will.i.am to perform at Club Answer in Cheongdam-dong on Wednesday
Will.i.am, leader of hip-hop group The Black Eyed Peas, will host a special deejay event at Club Answer in Cheongdam-dong, southern Seoul, on Wednesday, CJ E&M announced yesterday.
“Will.i.am wanted to make a surprise visit to Korea,” a representative from CJ E&M said.
“Since he wanted to meet his fans at a close proximity, we had to organize the event quickly and plan it to be like a party where the rapper could mingle with his Korean fans.”
Special guests scheduled to have a go at the turn table include DJ Poet and DJ Ammo.
The 19-and-up event will cost 44,000 won ($39) when booked in advance and 55,000 won at the door.
Will.i.am collaborated with K-pop performer CL from girl group 2NE1 when the two sang “Where Is the Love?” at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in Singapore last November.
MTV’s Iggy Web site cited the performance at the top of its “Top 10 Dream Collaborations” list for 2011.
