Baek Ji-young planning U.S. show
Music Works Entertainment, which represents the 39-year-old singer, said Friday that the concert will be held at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Palm Springs, California, on March 5.
She previously held solo concerts in Los Angeles and New York last August.
“Fans hailed her when we went to the States last year. Thus we decided to hold a concert again,” the agency said in a press release.
At the solo concert, Baek will sing many of her hit songs with a band.
Baek debuted to the music scene 16 years ago. She soared to stardom with dance music, but she also received recognition as a ballad singer in 2006 after releasing her first ballad song, “I Won’t Love.”
Since then, she has been singing many ballads and original soundtrack songs for hit drama series.
Many of her original soundtrack songs have become hits, and she is often referred to the queen of original soundtrack songs.
Baek’s most recent album came out in 2008, but she frequently appears on TV music shows.
She was one of the three main judges for the seventh season of TV audition show “Superstar K” last year, and she recently began to host the show “Starry Night” on MBC Radio.
