After her successful debut in Seoul as a stand-up comedian, Park Na-rae, 33, will perform in other major cities next month.

Park, one of the most sought-after stars in Korea, will bring the sex-comedy show "Glamour Warning" to Daegu (July 20), Seongnam (July 21) and Jeonju (July 28), following sold-out shows at the Blue Square I'Market Hall in Seoul last month.

Netflix, the international media-service provider collaborating with her for the work, said the recorded version of the show will soon be available for users.

It is a meaningful step forward for Park, who said her dream is to create a "K-comedy boom" in other countries, during
a recent interview with The Korea Times.

"We have so much funny comedy material with so many talented comedians in the country," she said. "I hope more people pay attention to K-comedy."

Since her debut as a KBS comedian in 2006, Park has gained popularity for her slapstick humor and frank talk on various TV shows, including tvN's "Comedy Big League" and MBC's "I Live Alone."
