Hallyu star Lee Byung-hun will release his first studio album in Japan. Lee’s official Japanese website reported that the actor was recently chosen by Japan’s leading automaker Toyota as the model for its ad campaign for its latest SUV, the “RAV 4.” Lee will be making his first TV commercial appearance in three years.
The site added that the actor will release a single album this season featuring the new song “Some Day,” which was featured in the Toyota TV ad campaign. “Some Day” was composed by renowned Japanese songwriter and producer Yasushi Akimoto.
Lee performed the song during a fan meeting tour in Japan last year and received a favorable response. Lee’s single album will feature two versions of the song–rock and ballad.
