Korean actor Joo Jin-mo will release a digital single this week, according to his agency JM Company on Wednesday.
JM announced in a press release that Joo's rendition of "Like Rain, Like Music", by late singer Kim Hyun-sik, will be unveiled online along with its music video on September 9.
"I'm embarrassed to be revealing a song which I sang to the whole world", Joo was quoted as saying. "But I decided to release the song since it was received favorably amongst fans in Japan when I sang it there".
Joo first sang "Like Rain, Like Music" during his first fan meeting in Japan at the Nakano Sun Plaza in Tokyo in July.
Born Park Jin-tae, Joo has appeared in other numerous films and dramas including "Queen of the Game" (SBS, 2006) as well as films "A Better Tomorrow" (2010) "a LOVE" (2007), "Puzzle" (2006) "Liar" (2004) and "Musa" (2001).
He became a household name in Japan through TV dramas "Fashion 70s" (SBS, 2005) and films "200 Pounds Beauty" (2006) and "A Frozen Flower" (2008), the latter project for which he won the award for best male actor at Baeksang Arts Awards in 2009.
