Alongside Leeteuk, actors Kim Moo Yeol and Ji Hyun Woo, who are also currently enlisted in Korean army, will appear in the musical. 8eight’s Lee Hyun and Supernova’s Yoon Hak is also reported to be part of the main cast.
“Star soldiers are working hard for this musical. Ji Hyun Woo and Kim Moo Yeol are actors, so their acting is very good. But the singers are also doing a good job with their acting, so you should look forward to this show,” an official was quoted as saying.
“The Promise” is being produced by the Ministry of National Defense to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Korean War. It is scheduled to open in January 2013 at the National Theater of Korea. The Defense Ministry will announce further details in the coming weeks.
