Singer Kim Jang-hoon plans to spend more time performing abroad.
Kim, well-known for his donations to various charities and causes totaling over $20 billion, will participate in a special concert commemorating the 20th anniversary of Korea-China diplomatic relations. The concert, which will also feature Super Junior M and Exo-K, will be held on Oct. 2 and aired throughout China. In February, Kim held his first concert in China at the Shanghai International Gymnastics Center.
Kim is scheduled to perform in Chicago, New York and Australia in September. He also plans on touring eight U.S. states in the spring of 2013.
The rock-ballad singer performed at the Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, California, on July 22 to a sold-out audience.
Recently, Kim received the U.S. President’s Volunteer Award from President Barak Obama.
“My focus is on publicizing Korea and myself. I am not interested in fame or making money,” said Kim in an interview with a local daily.
