Iconic tough guy Choi Min-soo held a showcase titled “Let’s play Min-soo” as a member of rock band 36.5 degrees at Rolling Hall in Hongdae on Monday. As vocalist of the band, he performed a number of songs, including originals “Smoky Mountain” and “Rusty Bike Saddle” in his unique and captivating voice.

“There is no formality at a play ground. Positions are meaningless when you are having fun. When you’re in the mood, you party together,” Choi said at the event. He added, “Formats are only there to give credibility. This is where you can make great relationships without any ulterior motives, because we can rely on each other’s friendship, love and passion without having to say it out loud which is embarrassing.”

The showcase was hosted by comedian Lee Byung-jin and featured special performances by Azalea Band and rock singer Kim Jung-min.

Choi Min-soo and his band will embark on a nationwide tour starting with concerts at Yonsei University in Seoul on June 29-30.
