On November 30th, the hip-hop duo Leessang will embark on their tour, “2013-2014 Leessang First Asia Showcase,” through five Asian countries, starting in Singapore at the Shanghai Dolly.
The duo will be the first non-k-pop idol group to tour the most number of Asian countries in the shortest span of time. CJ E&M will be the company that is hosting the showcase and the fan meet. The showcase will conclude in Malaysia on January 11th, 2014.
Leessang is composed of Kang Gary and Gil who gained substantial fandom notoriety around Asia from their appearances on the SBS program “Running Man” and the MBC program “Infinite Challenge.”
In a prepared statement Leessang shared, “We are honored that many people are recognizing Leessang’s music, and we want to show the audience our own style.”
A representative of CJ E&M said, “Leessang was able to pull hip-hop into the mainstream, and as the members participated in various comedy programs they were able to reach out to foreign fans with Korean hip-hop. The duo will be a breath of fresh air in the foreign K-pop market which is dominated by idol performances.”
Tickets for the Singapore showcase are available through Sistic.
