Kim Hyun Joong: Upcoming Concert Tour in Japan

Kim Hyun Joong's agency, Keyeast, said on September 28 that the tickets for Kim Hyun Joong's national concert tour in Japan that will begin this upcoming November were all sold out and they are considering holding additional concerts.

According to Keyeast, they began selling a total of 30,000 tickets for seven concerts in 7 cities in Japan -- Osaka, Sapporo, Sendai, Hiroshima, Yokohama, Nagoya, and Fukuoka -- through a mobile site from September 20, and around 90,000 people had accessed the site to buy the tickets, which were completely sold out. A person from Keyeast said, "Those who could not buy his concert tickets are requesting we hold additional concerts in other cities, so we are thoroughly considering adding more concerts." Kim Hyun Joong had successfully finished his first showcase in Japan last July, and he is planning to present songs included in his first mini album, including a song entitled "Break Down," and in the second mini album -- which will be released in the middle of next month -- during his concert tour.

Ballarat: Gold Museum and Sovereign Hill

After having a sumptuous lunch at Golden Crown Restaurant we went to Gold Museum in Ballarat, a city with a splendid gold rush architecture and fine gallery.

THE GOLD MUSEUM extends Sovereign Hill’s story of Ballarat, a majestic provincial city built on the wealth derived from the great Australian gold rushes of the 1850s.

An impressive glass-fronted building with commanding views, the Gold Museum offers an award-winning gift shop specialising in the sale of gold nuggets and Australian-made gold jewellery and fine giftware.

SOVEREIGN HILL is where Australia’s history comes to life. It’s just like stepping back in time - from the hustle and bustle of Main Street where costumed ladies and gents parade their new-found wealth, to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where you can pan for real gold and it’s yours to keep. (If you could really find one)

Exploring Sovereign Hill on foot is a perfectly recreated example of gold rush life during Victoria's Golden Era and went underground for a fascinating gold mine.

At Sovereign Hill, you can see a spectacular $100,000 gold pour, venture underground on a fully-guided gold mine tour or catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the town. Go shopping 1850s-style and visit hotels, schools and a theatre with goldfields entertainers. See steam-driven machinery in action and chat with our wheelwrights, candlemakers and confectioners as they ply their trades. On our streets and in our theatre, you will be entertained by costumed goldfields characters who are happy to pose for a great photo.
