An Jae-wook Plans to Sweep Americas

ahn_l.jpg

Korean actor and singer An Jae-wook, a pioneer of the Korean pop-culture craze, or Korean Wave, is planning to sweep the American continent following Asia. An plans to tour Asia starting from Tokyo on March 31 and moving on to China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. After that, he also plans to hold concerts in the U.S. as well as Mexico, Venezuela, and Peru.

In his concert at the Children’s Park in Neung-dong, Seoul on Saturday, An said, “I have become known in South America due to dramas I appeared in, so I am receiving invitations to hold concerts from various countries like Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.” An is gaining popularity in South America due to the drama “Star in My Heart,” which featured An as a leading character. “After my Japan and Southeast Asian tour, I am planning to perform in major cities in the U.S. and South American nations,” he added.

He made the audience laugh heartily with an episode about his popularity in South America. Last September, when President Roh Moo-hyun visited Mexico, some 30 local female fans of An gathered in front of the hotel where the president was staying with placards that read, “Send Jang Dong-gun and An Jae-wook to Mexico.” After the government asked An, “Since Jang is busy, why don’t you go there?” he answered, “I am busy too,” he jokingly said to the audience.

As if to prove An is a star leading the Korean Wave, some 800 foreign fans came to his concert, most of whom were middle-aged Japanese women. There were also fans from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia.

During the three-hour concert, he sang songs from his recent fifth album including the title song “Dururu,” and theme songs from other dramas. He also performed a magic show.

Meanwhile, An will return to the small screen in May after an 18-month absence by playing a role in the new drama “Mr. Goodbye.”

Writer: Ye Rang

Episode: 20 eps

Television Duration: 2004/1/1 ~ 004/2/19

Sypnosis:

Here is a couple who started off as the luckiest couple in love. Well, they thought they were... But soon that "luck" comes to an end and these two seriously start to take this "luck". Was it really a "luck" or just a "blank" after all?????

Th woman shouted for joy when she met him. Dashing and good looking, he was even 5 years younger than she. And he thought he made a great coup when he met her. Sexy and beautiful regardless of age, she even boasted economic power with a stable job.

At the beginning, everything was that picture-perfect. But again as there always comes a close to every beginning. That once perfect woman turns into a just ordinary married woman and also, that young prince charming now seems like a bum eating the bread of idleness. One day..she wakes up and shouts out, "I also know how to get angry! And I'm not going for divorce!" It's strange how their perilous marriage life is maintained even though they know that they are both having affairs.

Ahn Jae-wook advances to China

November 18, 2005

Actor Ahn Jae-wook has recently made a comeback as a singer after two years and eight months with his fifth album entitled “Sounds Like You.” Ahn participated in the recording of the KBS TV2 music show “Music Bank” on Nov. 18, and made an appearance on MBC’s “Music Center” on Nov. 19, where he performed the title song of his new album.

Ahn’s fifth album, which hit record stores Nov. 11, maintained the number one position on the weekly sales chart of Kyobo Hot Tracks for two straight weeks, and received a favorable response from listeners on various online music sites.

Ahn’s comeback has drawn significant attention not only from his domestic fans but from Chinese fans as well.

As a top hallyu star in China, Ahn has given 90 solo concerts in China since 2000. Tickets to each of his concerts in that country were sold out completely, with some 17,000 people attending his concert in Beijing in July 2000; 25,000 people the following year; 15,000 people in November of 2002 and some 50,000 in December of 2002 in Shanghai.

Ahn’s unrivaled popularity in China was proven once again in 2004, when 28,000 people came to his latest concert in China.

Ahn’s agency says the singer’s new album is expected to appeal to a wider audience this time as it features more sophisticated vocals and music.
