SidusHQ, one of Korea's largest talenthouses, is set to wrap up talks with former boy band 2PM leader Park Jae-beom and sign him onto the agency within the week, according to an official at SidusHQ on Tuesday.

"We have yet to finalize the contract -- we are negotiating on the details -- but we will reach a deal with him this week if nothing in particular comes up," the official told Asia Economic Daily over the phone.

The official showed caution in responding to reports saying the young singer is slated to appear in upcoming SBS TV series "Secret Garden," remarking "It is not easy to talk about it because he has not signed a contract yet."

Meanwhile, Park's solo debut single album, featuring the English, Korean and remix versions of song "Count on Me," went on sale today.

"Count on Me" is a rearranged version of American singer B.o.B's hit song "Nothin' On You" which he made famous in Korea after posting his cover of the song on his video site YouTube channel. B.o.B then recorded a new version of the song with Park instead of originally featured vocalist Bruno Mars.

Park, 23, is a Korean-American singer who debuted as the leader of popular K-pop band 2PM but he left the group and the country last September when controversy fired up over remarks he had written on his MySpace account while a trainee at agency JYP Entertainment (JYPE).

Park had been staying in the U.S. since, dancing with his b-boy crew Art of Movement and signing with U.S. online media company Digital Media Wire (DMW) to manage his career in the entertainment business.

He returned to Korea on June 18 to begin filming for the b-boy pic "Hype Nation."
