Shin Hye-sung, a member of the group Shinhwa, has formed a musical duet with up-and-coming artist Sun Min.

The two will debut August 27 on SBS TV’s music show as part of efforts to promote its single album due for release August 31.

Sun, who currently performs in Japan, will return to Korea August 26 to appear on the SBS TV show and the 1st Seoul Drama Awards ceremony to be held on the evening of the same day at Seoul Plaza in front of Seoul City Hall.

The duo’s first single album consists of the Korean-licensed version of the song “Keep Holding” from the original soundtrack of the movie “Sinking of Japan,” which opened in July and topped the Japanese box-office. Sun performed the song in Japan with famous Japanese singer and songwriter Toshinobu Kubota.

Shin and Sun will participate in the movie’s premiere in Korea on August 29 along with the movie’s director, Shinji Hikuchi, and lead actor Tsuyoshi Kusanagi.

As a solo artist, Shin will also release his remake album, “The Story Of Musicians,” on September 14. The singer says he is both excited and nervous to begin his solo activities, and hopes to show off a completely new image as a member of the new duo.
