Korean idols The Boss will take to the stage of a philanthropic project in Japan next month alongside Hallyu stars Bae Yong-joon and Kim Hyun-joong.
Open-World Entertainment announced in a press release Thursday that the boys are scheduled to be the opening act for the first series of the “Miso Project” titled “Message! To Asia,” aimed at helping the future of children in Asia, which will be held at the Tokyo Dome on December 14.
The event, set up by Japan’s Digital Adventure TV (DATV), will also feature local singer Hwanhee and international stars such as Japanese singer GACKT and Vanness Wu.
The “Miso Project” is a contribution-based philanthropy project which will help non-profit organization KnK (Kokkyo naki Kodomotachi) donate proceeds from the event to underprivileged children in Cambodia and the Philippines.
“The members of The Boss have always shown a keen interest in charity work and have continuously thought of ways to help the needy children of the world,” an official from Open-World was quoted as saying.
Composed of members Hyun-min, Injun, Jay, Karam and Mika, The Boss (The Boys of Super Space) made their debut in March this year with their single album “The Admirer” and released their second album “Awake” three months later .
The group recently signed with Japan’s Sony Music Record to release their Japanese debut album to launch their official singing career in the country.
“Message to Asia” will be broadcast in the country January 10 next year.
