Through late 2011, Yanni had performed live in concert before more than two million people in more than 20 countries around the world, and has accumulated more than 35 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 20 million copies.
At least fourteen of Yanni's albums have peaked at #1 in Billboard's "Top New Age Album" category, and two albums received Grammy nominations.
As this genre of music was not well suited for commercial pop radio and music television, Yanni achieved international recognition by producing concerts at historic monuments and by producing videos that were broadcast on public television.
His breakthrough concert, Yanni Live at the Acropolis, yielded the second best-selling music video of all time.
The rumors stemmed off from Lee Sung Kyung's recent Instagram post.
The model-actress shared a photo from Coldplay's concert, which took place on April 15-16 in Korea. The mystery guy in the photo is rumored to be Nam Joo Hyuk.
