Hyolyn, who occupies an unrivaled position in K-pop with her charisma and powerful voice, is to embark on a world tour.

“2024 Hyolyn Show World Tour Concert" will kick off at the Taipei International Convention Center, Taiwan, on Feb. 25. The next destination of the world tour is yet to be unveiled.

The upcoming world tour is Hyolyn's second. Her first world tour, "True," took place in 2019 and had her perform eight concerts in seven countries including England, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Taiwan, Malaysia and Japan. Since then, Hyolyn has performed only in South Korea and Taiwan.

Hyolyn recently made her comeback as a member of Sistar19, a unit of the now-defunct girl group Sistar, after an 11-year break. The new single "No More (MA BOY)" topped the iTunes global chart shortly after its release on Jan. 16 in nine countries around the world, including France, Spain, Australia, Germany, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Turkey, and Malaysia.

As a pop opera singer and a musical actor, Kai is determined to show his unique strengths and broad spectrum of talents, his agency EMK Entertainment said.
