"I think I'm doing some more concerts at the end of summer. If that pushes through, I do a little New Breed concert tour," Jay Park told Bulletin Entertainment when he was in Manila for his album promo tour last May.
The singer, dancer and actor is currently in Singapore for the "Boyz Nite Out K-pop Festival" that will be held tonight at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Jay Park will perform at the festival together with boy bands SHINee, B1A4, Teen Top and 220.127.116.11.
He performed at the Expo 2012 Yeosu "Korean Wave Concert" last June 9 in Yeosu, Korea along with BEAST, BTOB and A-Pink.
Jay Park has also officially entered the Japanese music market.
Last June 13, the regular and limited editions of his albums "Take A Deeper Look" and "New Breed" were released in Japan.
He will hold his special showcase and album signing event in Japan on July 1 at Duo Music Exchange in Shibuya, Tokyo.
After the Singapore festival, Jay Park will fly back to Seoul to perform at the R-16 Korea 2012 National Championship which will be held on Jun 23 at the Eijeongbu Art Center.
R-16 Korea 2012 National Championship is a b-boying dance competition and is part of the R-16 Korea 2012 World B-Boy Masters Championship that will be held on July 7 and 8 in Seoul.
