Kim Jong-kook sings again
In “Running Man,” Kim has become a hit for his masculine image. A Chinese version of the same show is also airing on a Chinese cable channel.
Urban Works Entertainment, the singer’s agency, said on Dec. 27 that Kim did his first solo concert in Harbin, China and all the tickets sold out.
For those who could not purchase tickets, the concert was broadcast live through a mobile messenger.
Kim will have another solo concert on Feb. 14 in Beijing.
Having started out as a member of male dance duo Turbo in 1995, Kim’s had a successful singing career as a solo musician until 2012 but he’s been away from the music scene in recent years appearing in a few reality TV shows.
