[News] SS501 to give encore concert in Seoul next month [2010.01.26]

Korean idol group SS501 is set to give a concert in Seoul next month, according to their agency DSP Media on Monday.

The boy band will be performing at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium on February 27 and 28, as an encore gig of their Asian tour "PERSONA".

"It is an encore performance but we will edit the repertoire so that it will be like a brand new show," the agency was quoted as saying.

The concert will also feature individual performances by the five members as in their previous concerts. Last year, the group's leader Kim Hyun-joong earned the nickname "rip-joong" after he ripped off a sleeve during a dance routine in his individual performance. Another member Park Jung-min has sung the theme to the film "Comrades: Almost a Love Story" and a hit song by Leslie Cheung at concerts in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

SS501 debuted in 2005 with single "Warning" and have been active in Korea and Japan, releasing numerous albums both as a group and also pursuing individual careers such as acting and appearing in variety shows.

The group made a successful comeback to the music scene last October, topping various music charts with their second mini-album "REBIRTH".
