Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong is wrapping up his overseas activities to focus on his drama.
Beginning in January, Kim Hyun Joong was busy with his Japan debut single album, which took him out of the country for a while as he tried to connect with his international fans.

He conducted a 'Kim Hyun Joong Fan Meeting Tour 2012' in May and visited 5 countries and 8 cities just to meet his fans and give them the gift of talking to him and meeting him in person.
His second Japanese album, 'HEAT', which was released in July, ranked #1 on the Oricon daily and weekly charts, selling a total of 200,000 albums in the country. He surpassed TVXQ and Japanese singer Yamabbi to rank the third on the Oricon monthly chart and came up to #20 in the single rankings, which was the highest for a Korean singer in the market.
He also reaffirmed his status as a major Hallyu star when he ranked #1 on the Taiwan MTV chart, Amazon Japan and other Asian charts, spreading the K-Pop popularity worldwide.
After a very successful year with his music, he finished his long 7-month schedule by being the finale to the Japan Fireworks Festival and came back to Korea.
He now plans to focus strictly on the drama "City Conquest," where he will play Mir Baek and plans to show a much more charismatic side which contrasts from his previous images as the soft-spoken gentleman.
