SINGAPORE - Two of K-pop's hottest stars - Running Man's Kang Gary and singer Jung In - will perform one night at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) charity event at the Padang on Aug 16. 

Organised by NTU students, NTU Fest, which is open to the public, aims to raise money for an endowment fund for needy Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students.

Prior to the evening concert, Education Minister, Mr Heng Swee Keat, will officially launch the carnival at the Padang.

Mr Heng will also flag off the 4.8-km 5TYLO MILE-O fun run, which will take participants through Singapore's historic Civic District, starting from Esplanade Park along the Singapore River through Fort Canning Hill and back to the Padang.

K-pop stars performing their hit singles Kang Gary and Jung In are expected to perform their latest hit single Your Scent as well as songs from their previous albums.

The full-day event culminates in a special performance by Korean rapper Kang Gary, best known as one of the seven hosts of the hugely popular entertainment show Running Man.
