Mars enjoys pre-concert galbi


Bruno Mars

International pop star Bruno Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, arrived in Seoul on Sunday for his first Korean concert tonight at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena, southwestern Seoul, according to local media yesterday.

“After he arrived yesterday [Sunday], Mars enjoyed some Korean food such as galbi [Korean barbecue]. There will be no promotional events, and he will just focus on the concert,” said the organizer of Mars’s Seoul performance.

Mars’s visit to Seoul is part of his world “Moonshine Jungle Tour,” which kicked off last June.

The singer previously performed in the United States and Canada, where he sold out 44 of his 48 scheduled performances.

Tickets for Mars’s Seoul concert also sold out within two hours, according to the concert organizer.

The 29-year-old singer debuted in 2010 with the studio album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” and rose to fame in 2011 with singles like “Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade.”

His second album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,” released in 2012, has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
