Park Jae-beom Returns To The U.S.

Singer and actor Park Jae-beom left for the United States today after wrapping up filming of b-boy pic "Hype Nation."

Park had been in Korea since mid-June to shoot the Korea and U.S. joint production about a dance contest between Western and Eastern b-boys.

While in the country, he carried out a variety of other activities as well, including signing with major talenthouse SidusHQ, releasing his solo debut single "Count on Me" and performing at an annual two-day music fest.

He will return to Korea on August 24, in time to take part in his Asia fan tour which kicks off in Seoul four days later. He will then visit several countries in Asia including Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, the Philippines and Malaysia.

Park, 23, made his debut as the leader of the popular K-pop band 2PM but left the group and the country last September when controversy fired up over remarks he wrote on his MySpace account while a trainee at agency JYP Entertainment (JYPE). 

He had been staying in the U.S. since, dancing with his b-boy crew Art of Movement and signing with American online media company Digital Media Wire (DMW) to manage his global career in the entertainment business.
