Andy, a member of K-pop band Shinhwa who has been lying low after having been caught gambling illegally late last year, will attend a fan meeting in China next month, his agency said Monday.
“Yes, Andy is going to China on request from fans. But it is not a signal of his comeback to the stage or small screen here,” an official at TOP Media told The Herald Business, the sister paper of The Korea Herald.
According to the agency, the 33-year-old singer will meet his Chinese fans in the Chinese port city of Ningbo on May 17.
It will be his first public appearance in nearly six months after he and four other celebrities were caught making bets on an illegal mobile gambling site. He was fined 5 million won ($4,800).
Andy did not perform at the group’s 16th anniversary concert in Seoul last month but at the end of the event took the stage to apologize for his misconduct.
