SS501's Kim Hyung-jun Makes Front Page News in Indonesia

Kim Hyung-jun, the youngest member of boy band SS501, is enjoying explosive popularity in Indonesia and other parts of Asia, proof that the Korean Wave is still going strong.

Some three months after Kim released his solo album, "My Girl", the singer was featured on the front page of the Sunday Post, the weekend edition of Indonesia's influential daily Jakarta Post. This came one day after Kim appeared with other Korean singers in the Fantastic K-POP Concert in Jakarta.

Meanwhile, "My Girl" ranked No. 1 in the Taiwanese music charts shortly after its release in March, and 1,200 tickets for the singer's recent concert in Singapore, the first leg of his Asian tour, immediately sold out.

A local staffer who handled the weekend concert said that Kim has been gaining a steady fan base in Indonesia. He was chosen by the newspaper ahead of the other singers who performed at the same concert, suggesting that he enjoys greater face value, the staffer said.

Kim will continue his Asian tour next month with gigs in Hong Kong on July 17 and in Taiwan the following week.
