SS501 member Kim Hyung-joon [S-Plus Entertainment]
SS501 member Kim Hyung-joon will be visiting actor Kang Ji-hwan in Japan this week.
S-Plus Entertainment, in charge of managing both stars, announced that Kim decided to visit Kang on the set of the musical "Cafe In," currently playing in Japan, on October 29 to better prepare himself before the show starring himself opens in Korea on November 24 at the Baekam Art Hall.
"The musical is going well in Japan and I was happy to hear that Kim will be visiting the country soon," Kang was quoted as saying, adding that he hopes that watching him will help Kim to play the male lead in the Korea show.
In early October, it was announced that Kim will make his debut as a musical actor, playing the double role of Jimin and Jung-min in the year-end run of the musical.
"Kim is currently busy preparing for his role and training every day as well as participating in interviews to promote 'Cafe In,'" an official from S-Plus explained.
Kim, 23, made his debut as one of the members of the popular boy band SS501 in 2005. The group produced several hit songs such as "Warning," "My Girl" and "Love Ya."
He opened actor Song Seung-hun's fan meeting in September as well as holding his first solo meet-and-greet in Singapore in August and in Taiwan over the weekend.
