[News] The Boss to begin activities in Japan

Korean idol group The Boss will begin their music activities in Japan, according to their agency Open-World Entertainment on Friday.

The boys will be in Sapporo, Japan from September 18 to 20 for the "2010 Hallyu Music Festival" and stay in the country for six months to expand their music careers in the country.

The group in June had signed with Japan’s Digital Adventure (D.A), which is in charge of Hallyu star Bae Yong-joon and other aspects of the entertainment industry, to plan the promotional activities for the boys in the country.

A PR official from Open-World told 10Asia over the phone, "The Boss members will be recording a Japanese single and carry out various promotional events in the country through D.A. but there is no set date on when the album will be released as of now."

The official added that D.A. is looking into various television appearances in the country as well.

The Boss, which means The Boys of Super Space, released their debut single album "The Admirer" in March 2010. They followed it up with a mini-album "Awake" in June, featuring the title track "Stumble, Stumble."

The boy band will be holding a mini concert tomorrow at the Seoul Art Hall, performing their songs as well as give solo performances.
