Actor So Ji-seob, who has steadily continued his preparations to advance to Japan, will kick off his singing career in Japan as a rapper.
Nikkan Sports said Sunday that So will debut as “Rapper G” in Japan on Feb. 27 with the song “‘Lonely Life.” It said So made news in Korea in August when he anonymously released an album comprising two single tracks.
Known for his mega-hit Korean dramas “Sorry, I Love You” and “What Happened in Bali,” So finished his military service last year and appeared in the Japanese film “Kita Gegegeno’s 1000 Years of Curse Song.”
Then, prior to the release of his Korean film “Rough Cut,” he appeared as himself in the music video of “Lonely Life” in a project album called G. He then showcased a digital single under the name “G-sonick,” hiding his identity.
So has not performed as Rapper G in Korea, so fans are wondering if he will first debut in Japan. So is currently filming the SBS drama “Cain and Abel” (written by Park Gye-ok, produced by Kim Hyeong-sik) as well as a joint Korean and Chinese film, “Sophie’s Revenge.”
