Six-member boy group BEAST will officially debut in Japan in late November, according to its agency Cube Entertainment on Friday.

Cube explained that the boys will kick off their singing career in Japan through a major showcase on November 27 at Tokyo Big Sight, a large convention center which can accommodate some 10,000 fans.

Cube also said that the band will release its full-length album in the country early next year in collaboration with local record company Universal Music Japan.

Japanese paper Sports Hochi pointed out it is rare in Japan for a one-time showcase to be held in such scale. The paper also said tickets for the group’s exclusive concert sold out in 20 minutes last Wednesday.

On the day of their showcase, the boys will take a helicopter to reach the stage in Tokyo upon their arrival at Haneda Airport, a special event limited to famed celebrities like Michael Jackson. BEAST also plans to perform with a real lion on stage.

Three days prior to the showcase, BEAST will release a package of a premium edition of their album and DVD on November 24.
