Singer Shin Seung-hun is expected to earn over W10 billion in the first half of this year from releasing albums and holding concerts in Japan (US$1=W1,265).
His agency said Thursday that his album "Acoustic Wave" has sold more than 100,000 copies since it was released in March in Japan, earning W4 billion. Tickets for his tour concerts in five Japanese cities -- Osaka, Kobe, Nagoya, Saitama, and Tokyo -- sold out on the first day of sale, adding W4.5 billion in the singer's earnings, it added.
The concerts in Japan will start Shin's Asian tour that will extend through the second half of this year, taking in Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai.
