After making amends with Psy, Kim Jang Hoon will be leaving Korea for a long while.

Kim Jang Hoon′s agency stated through a press release on October 12 that "Kim Jang Hoon planned to wrap up his promotions in Korea by next spring and then tour America and China in a 20-city national tour. Recently the plans have mostly been confirmed."

It explained, "Kim Jang Hoon will be taking up a directing spot for the performance team in China′s biggest broadcasting group, the Shanghai Media Group, and so he′s talking things over with his Chinese agency."

"Three years ago, Kim Jang Hoon turned down the offers because he never thought of leaving Korea, but he′s seriously thinking it over now after the recent series of events," it added.

Kim Jang Hoon also opened his mouth through his agency. "My leaving Korea is a personal matter. I saw the limits to my personality after getting through a few events, and I was disappointed by myself," he said.

"If I′m in Korea, a lot of unexpected schedules come my way since I′m healthy, and so I can′t help but strain myself," he added. "I want to empty my mind and return with a broader heart. I′m not leaving Korea because I hate it, but because I want to live happily there."

"After five years of preparations, I made the conclusion that I could hold concerts outdoors in eight or 12 states for my America tour from April next year, starting from New York and wrapping up in L.A. I′m confident I′ll be able to set a new global trend in performance, and I′ll concentrate on taking up a new challenge as a singer and heightening the status of Korea."

After his health returns, Kim Jang Hoon plans to release a teaser video of his new ballad single on October 25. He will then leave for Taiwan and Shanghai, China to talk over specifics about his concert.
