K-pop boy band 2PM member Junho has marked a pleasant start to his solo singing career in Japan, while starting on vigorous overseas promotional activities for his debut movie “Cold Eyes.”

Junho wrapped up his first solo concert tour in Japan “JUNHO 1st Solo Tour Kimi no Koe” held at Tokyo’s International Forum last night, his agency JYP Entertainment said in a press release Friday.

With 2PM members Jun. K and Wooyoung’s support backstage, last night Junho first performed “Heartbreaker,” the tune from his debut mini-album “Kimi no Koe,” and filled up the set-list all with his self-written songs except two cover tunes.

Celebrating the very last night of his two-month tour, the two-hour concert was also aired live on 42 screens in 38 theaters in Japan, electrifying his fans around the country.

The musician, who expanded his career to acting with his debut movie “Cold Eyes,” flew to Singapore today to attend the thriller movie’s press conference, red carpet event and international gala premiere tonight.

The film, set to open in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei next Friday, has also been invited to the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, the biggest film fest in North America.

According to the festival’s guest list announced last week, Junho is expected to visit Toronto with the movie’s directors and cast members including Seol Kyung-gu, Jung Woo-sung and Han Hyo-joo, but the schedule will be set around next Wednesday, an official with the movie’s producing company told TenAsia on Friday.

The gala screening of “Cold Eyes” will be at the Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto on September 13, with two more screenings set for the two following days at different theaters.
