Soprano Sumi Jo and pop star Rain will collaborate on the theme song for “Universe,” a mobile K-pop fan activity platform launched last month by the Korean online game giant NCSoft.
According to KLAP, an entertainment subsidiary of NCSoft, on Tuesday, the track will be released on Feb. 9. The title of the song is yet to be announced.
“Universe” is a mobile app on which K-pop fans can enjoy activities and exclusive content from their favorite artists.

“Universe” launched on Jan. 28 in 134 countries. Eighty-percent of its users are from outside of Korea.
