Eminem held his first concert in Korea on Sunday at Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul, staging the show in front of over 20,000 fans as part of his world tour concert entitled "Recovery."
The singer released his sixth album with the same title in 2010 when he made a comeback after battling an addiction to prescription drugs and suffering due to the death of his close friend and band mate, Proof.
Since his debut in 1999, the rapper has sold over 80 million copies of his albums. He has also picked up 13 Grammy awards. In 2003, he grabbed the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Lose Yourself," taken from the soundtrack of his movie "8 Mile," beating other nominees including U2 and Paul Simon.
During the two-hour concert, Eminem performed his hit songs including those on the "Recovery" album, and fans responded passionately to the long-awaited show.
