Korean singer Jang Woo-hyuk has been offered to appear in a martial arts pic by Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen, according to his agency on Friday.

The singer was approached by Yen at the China Music Award and Asian Influential Awards (CMA), held in China on March 28, where he was invited to the premiere of Yen's film "Ip Man 2" and also asked to appear in the third installment of the martial arts movie.

An official at Jang's agency said nothing has been set as of yet for the singer other than his solo concert in China on May 8.

He added, however, that the Korean pop idol is open to "taking on challenges into various realms if he has the time."

Yen, who won the "Asia's Most Influential - China" award at the CMA, is a prominent Hong Kong martial arts actor, director and film producer. He has appeared in numerous action flicks including "Hero", "Blade II" and "Once Upon A Time In China II" alongside Chinese movie star Jet Li.

Jang, 32, made his debut in 1996 as a member of the now-disbanded idol group H.O.T and embarked on his solo career in 2005. He visited China several times for his musical activities in the country after he completed Korea's mandatory two-year military service.

He was named the most influential Asian performer at the CMA last week.
