Boy band TVXQ will launch a large-scale concert tour in Asia following the group’s successful first concert in Korea in February.

The band will give its first concert in Asia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 14 at the Putra Indoor Stadium under the title "TVXQ’s Rising Sun 1st Asia Tour 2006 Live In Malaysia."

The concert was organized at the invitation of Malaysian organizers who saw TVXQ’s concert in Korea back in February, which enraptured some 40,000 fans.

The band has created an extensive fan base in Malaysia, which it will visit for the first time, by discussing with local fans their opinions on the group’s music.

The Putra Indoor Stadium, where TVXQ will perform, accommodates 20,000 people and is famous as a venue for various year-end events.

The band Superjunior will appear as a special guest at the concert.

Following its concert in Malaysia, TVXQ will give a large concert in Thailand in September and visit other Asian countries as well.

South Korean fans who want to see the band’s Malaysian concert will be invited to use four-day tour packages including TVXQ’s concert and general tourism in Malaysia. Applications for packages will be received from June 22 on TVXQ’s Web site (http://www.tvxq.com).
