ss501's THE 1st ASIA TOUR PERSONA

As they say, "strike while the iron is hot!". After ss501 band leader Kim Hyun Joong appeared in the hit drama Boys Before Flowers, his band has been in the spotlight and receiving much attention. All these while ss501 have been pretty popular in Korea and Japan, but rarely ventured to other countries in Asia. With the new publicity garnered, ss501 can now embark on their first Asian tour!

The good news is, fans in Malaysia can expect a ss501 concert in December 2009.

ss501's will kick off their four month THE 1st ASIA TOUR PERSONA concert in Seoul on Aug 1 & 2. The concert in Seoul will be held at Seoul's Olympic Park Gymnastic Stadium. They will also be performing in Budokan, Tokyo on 13 August. The tour will cover 10 countries which includes Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, Singapore and Malaysia!

ss501 will also be releasing their 2nd album by end of July 2009.

Only recently, it was reported that Kim Hyun Joong has been overworked and very tired. Besides working on their 2nd album, the boys are also working on a "collection album" where each member will have a solo song. Each solo song will be accompanied with a music video. So watch out for this too.

So excited to hear about all the concerts...wish they would do a full concert in the US but I guess that's too much to hope for. I'll just have to be content with hearing everyone else's accounts! SS501 Fighting!

Why isn't Manila in their itenerary? Boys Over Flowrs is currently showing in one of the biggest tv network here in the Philippines and their drama has shown high ratings so I'm sure enough they have already garnered legion of fans here. It's sad that Korean actors doesn't show interest in coming here. Hope one day soon they will.

The stuff that they have on sale are:

1. SS501 1st Story (their first album)
2. 1st Concert in Osaka 2008 Japan Tour
3. K-fes 2007 (a Korean concert where SS501 performed!)

I agree with Fidelina. I mean,Manila is also part of Asia.I've been wondering why most Korean artists isn't considering the Philippines to be one the sites of their Asia Tour. I so wanna love to see Kim Hyun-joong super. And I have to go to Hongkong or Singapore just to see him. If they had included the Manila in their Asia tour,it would be easier for me.
