Korean R&B singer Bobby Kim will expand his singing career into Japan, starting by holding a concert in the country next month, according to his agency Oscar Entertainment on Monday.
Oscar said Kim is scheduled to hold a solo concert for his Japanese fans on March 28 at the famed Billboard Live club in Osaka.
The Billboard Live is where world-renowned musician Bobby Brown gave his live performance last year, as well as the venue for upcoming shows by Grammy award-winning jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves and U.S. R&B pioneers Kool & The Gang.
"I'm thrilled to be performing on the same stage as Bobby Brown, Dianne Reeves and Kool & The Gang. I will prepare the best show possible for my fans in Japan," Kim was quoted as saying.
Kim first appeared on the Korean music scene as a rapper of hip-hop group Buga Kingz in 1999. He took up singing later on into his career however, releasing two solo albums which have produced several hits.
