Singer Charlie Puth visiting Seoul
American singer and songwriter Charlie Puth is performing in Seoul in August, the production company Live Nations Korea announced Tuesday.
Formerly a YouTube star, the Berklee College of Music graduate put himself on the map by singing and writing the song “See You Again,” a tribute to the actor Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in 2013. The song placed No. 1 on the Billboard chart and maintained its status for 12 weeks.
Since then, the singer and his musical caliber were thrust into the spotlight again with his new song “Marvin Gaye,” which placed high on music charts across Europe last year.
The other songs of his first official album, “Nine Track Mind,” also got a lot of love internationally.
The scheduled visit is the star’s second to Korea following a previous tour last October.
Puth’s concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Aug. 18 at Yes24 Live Hall in Gwangjang-dong, eastern Seoul. Tickets will be available beginning Sunday via Interpark and Yes24.
