Singer/Actress Jang Na-ra to Give Comeback Concert


Hallyu star Jang Na-ra will give her first comeback concert in a year and two months. She will showcase her second Chinese-version album, whose title song is "Kungfu," at the Grand Hall of Chung-Ang University’s Art Center in Heukseok-dong, Seoul on Apr. 13 at 5:00 p.m. in celebration of the album’s release in the country.

She will also appear on "Show! Music Tank," a program of KMTV, a music channel, on Apr. 14; and join the recording of SBS TV’s program "Kim Yun-ah’s Music Wave" on Apr. 18.

Jang had so far stayed in China to act in a Chinese TV drama entitled "Princess Diaoman" and promote her first and second Chinese-version albums. It will be her first appearance onstage as a singer in the country since about a year and two months after she was engaged in promotional activities for her fourth regular album in the country for about a week in mid-February of last year.

In the upcoming showcase concert, Jang will sing a total of seven songs, such as "Kungfu" and "Meng Feixiang" from her second Chinese-version album that was released in Korea under the title "Bisang" in late March. At the concert, Jang will perform with dancers with whom she is working together in China.

An official from Jang’s agency said, "The upcoming showcase concert will be attended by journalists and album production agency officials from China. Jang will also invite university presidents from 12 countries from around the world and hallyu experts to a seminar entitled ‘Forum for the Globalization of Hallyu through Asian Cultural Community,’ which will be held right before the concert."

Jang is also enjoying high popularity in China as a TV actress thanks to the high viewer ratings of the drama "Princess Diaoman," in which she starred. Some Chinese news media outlets praised Jang as an actress with higher popularity than famous Chinese actress Zhao Wei, who starred in the TV drama entitled "Princess of the Emperor."”
