TVXQ begins Asian leg of '20&2' tour in Hong Kong


TVXQ will kick off the Asian leg of its “20&2” tour starting Saturday in Hong Kong, the boy band’s agency SM Entertainment said Wednesday.

It will be the first time in over four years that the band will hold solo concerts in Asian countries other than Korea.

After starting in Hong Kong on Saturday it will move to Bangkok, Thailand, on Feb. 3 and Taipei, Taiwan, on Feb. 24.

The band is set to perform tracks from its recent ninth full-length album “20&2,” released on Dec. 26, and other "one-of-its-kind performances during the concerts," its agency said.

More countries will be added to the tour list in the coming days, according to the agency.

Detailed information, including ticket sales for the concerts, will be on the band’s official social media account.

TVXQ recently held two concerts on Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 at the newly opened Inspire Arena on Incheon’s Yeongjong Island, celebrating its 20th anniversary.

TVXQ debuted in 2003 as a quintet and became one of Asia’s biggest boy bands in the 2000s. Three members — Kim Jae-joong, Park Yoo-chun and Kim Jun-su — left the band and agency in 2009 and the band started a new journey with the remaining two members, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin. It has released hit songs such as “Hug” (2003), “Rising Sun” (2005) and “Mirotic” (2008) and many more.
