Jazz-pop duo Winterplay’s album “Two Fabulous Fools,” which was originally released in Korea in July, has been released in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau after the artists recently signed an agreement with music label Universal Music.

The duo already has a growing fan base in Asia and is planning end-of-the-year performances in December. Along with the album itself, the music video for title track “Yoboseyo Baby” will be released in Hong Kong. The artists are also planning various promotional events and performances for the future.

In 2008, Winterplay entered the Japanese music scene and charted No. 1 in the jazz section of iTunes. They were also the first Asian artists invited to perform at Billboard Live in Japan. In 2011 the duo released “Sunshines” in Hong Kong’s record franchise HMV where it ranked No. 1 for the best-selling album.

Meanwhile Winterplay is currently holding special events on their official Facebook page where Korean and foreign fans can contribute to the making of their next music video for track “Shake it Up and Down.”
