Korean pop icon Rain will visit Japan next month for his first concert tour after being released from military service, his agency said Tuesday.

The “2013 Rain Zepp Tour: Story of Rain” will begin with performances in Nagoya on Nov. 14-15, Rain’s management agency Cube DC said.

The tour marking the 11th anniversary of Rain’s debut will also take him to Fukuoka, Osaka and Tokyo, it said.

The 31-year-old K-pop star was released after completing 21 months of mandatory military service in July.

Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, is one of the biggest names in the world of K-pop, which commands a huge following in Korea, across much of Asia and beyond.

In January, he was confined to barracks for a week after he sneaked out to meet TV drama star Kim Tae-hee while on official duty. (AFP)
