SINGAPORE (AP) ― Korean entertainer Kim Hyun Joong is preparing to kick off his “2012 Asia Fan Meeting Tour’’ by high-fiving all 3,000 people expected to turn up ― a first for a pop star visiting Singapore.

Event organizer “Running Into The Sun’’ said the original plan was for Kim to high-five 500 fans selected from the audience but Kim was insisting on high-fiving everyone.

The tour that starts Friday includes Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Thailand.

Kim told the Associated Press the tour is his way of showing appreciation for his fans and he’s confident security won’t be an issue.
