South Korean singer Hwang Chi-yeul will be having a fan meeting in Malaysia for the first time next year at Genting Highlands!

The 33-year-old singer recently competed in season four of I Am a Singer which ended in April 2016, alongside Coco Lee, Hacken Lee, LaLa Hsu, among others, and ended up as the second runner-up in the finals.

Though the singer only achieved mainstream recognition after participating in Mnet’s I Can See Your Voice in 2015, he actually made his debut into the music industry in 2007, releasing two albums in the same year.

But after his previous management company shut down due to financial difficulties, Hwang was forced to take on various part-time jobs including teaching at music schools as a vocal coach until late 2014.

The singer has now started to gain more and more success, with more songs topping the iTunes K-pop singles chart all around Asia, and he has been making plenty of appearances in TV shows and dramas too.

Also, the singer sang one of the soundtrack for the KBS drama Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, and coincidentally, the main star of the drama, Park Bo-gum, is coming to Malaysia this December!

Hwang Chi-yeul’s inaugural fan meeting in Malaysia will take place on January 21, 2017 at Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands, 8.30pm with ticket prices starting from RM184 to RM784.
