MBLAQ turns to a new chapter in their activities this year.

From August 5, they will be flying to Mexico to officially begin their international tour.

They are scheduled to have a concert of considerable scale on August 8 in Mexico City Pepsi Center. A Latin Grammy-winning Mexican band Reik will be joining them on stage as special guest. Following the concert, MBLAQ will be featured in a music program aired on Televisa.

After they wrap up their activities in Mexico until August 11, MBLAQ will head to Japan. They will be hitting Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya during their tour in Japan, using ZEPP concert halls. Further plans are still under negotiation with local management companies.

MBLAQ is signaling their foray into the Latin music industry as they start their international activities in Mexico. The group received “love calls” from several different countries, including Brazil, Chile, and Peru, but Mexico became their final decision as their first destination in South America. MBLAQ marks the second K-Pop star to have performed in Mexico, after Kim Junsu.

Their activities had run into logistical issues in Japan this past year, halting further concerts in the country. MBLAQ is now back, more than ready to show fans in Japan what they have in store. They already have an illustrious beginning having reached #1 in Japan’s Oricon charts upon their debut.
