A household name in his native Korea, Hwang Young-Min aka Tim Hwang will be coming to Malaysia for his first Asia fan-meeting plus promotional tour! Named, “Into Asia Comes Tim’s World”, the tour will have the fresh-faced Korean-American finally meeting his scores of beloved fans face to face. And believe us, he is well loved.

After all, he is Korea’s legendary “Prince of Ballads”.


Represented by Sony Music Entertainment Korea, Tim arrives riding on the success of his recent mini album release (“A Long Day”) in November last year. This follows the remarkable sales of his previous five albums, the debut being “First TIM” in 2003, which sold over 100,000 copies, garnered numerous awards including “Rookie of the Year” at the Korean Music Awards and launched him into international fame.

Tim is a rare commodity in the Korean music world as he is comfortably bi-lingual and sings in both English and Korean. His childhood was a time of great musical exploration as Tim spent it honing his vocal skills in the choir and mastered the saxophone  drums, piano and guitar. Tim has landed plum hosting roles such as MTV Korea’s “Tim’s World”, which followed the lives and struggles of musicians striving for their big break.

So, who wants to meet the “Prince of Ballads” and at the same time, grab a copy of his new album, “Saranghae”, that was especially tailor-made for both Malaysia and Singapore?
