INTO ASIA COMES KOREA’S PRINCE OF BALLADS
Korean ballad sensation Tim Hwang tours Asia to meet his fans for the first time.
Tim Hwang, Korea’s legendary “Prince of Ballads”, will be coming to Singapore and Malaysia for a promotional tour from November 28 to December 3, 2012!
A household name in his native Korea, Tim’s first ever promotional visit to Southeast Asia, ‘INTO ASIA COMES TIM’S WORLD’, will have the fresh-faced Korean-American finally meeting his scores of beloved regional fans face to face.
Represented by Sony Music Entertainment Korea, Tim arrives riding on the success of his recent mini album release (‘A Long Day’) in November last year. This follows the remarkable sales of his previous five albums, the debut being ‘First TIM’ in 2003, which sold over 100,000 copies, garnered numerous awards including ‘Rookie of the Year’ at the Korean Music Awards and launched him into international fame.
Tim’s soothing voice and bi-lingual nature (not to mention dashing good looks!) has allowed him to have a fulfilling career as an artiste and entertainer; he has lent his voice to many OSTs of Korean dramas like ‘Secret Garden’, ’49 Days’, ‘Queen of Reversal’, appeared in many variety programmes like ‘Strong Heart’, ‘Immortal Song 2’ and ‘Star Golden Bell’, among others, and is also a well-known modelling talent. But did you also know that his beautiful soul has gotten him involved in humanitarian causes in places like Africa, Cambodia and Indonesia?
Most recently, Tim has been making waves in Indonesia, as he plays the lead in the Korean-Indonesian co-production, ‘Saranghae, I Love You’. This is his debut attempt as an actor in a drama series. The plot involves a love story between couples from different cultural backgrounds. Tim has further become a household name in the nation due to his duet with top Indonesian singer, Astrid, for the show’s theme song, ‘Saranghamnida’, which exploded across the country’s radio charts as a number one hit in April this year. ‘Saranghae, I Love You’ aired in Indonesia from July 16 to Aug 24 and the drama will air in Malaysia and Singapore. Due to his popularity in Indonesia, Tim also recorded a single named, ‘Pahitnya Asmara’ (Love is Bad) in Bahasa, making him possibly the first Korean singer to have done so in that language.
