It has been reported that singer Se7en will be making his return to the public eye and kicking off his first official activity since his discharge from the military with his first-ever musical.
Se7en was recently cast as the role of “Der Tod (Death)” in the popular musical “Elisabeth,” which is scheduled to premiere this coming June 13 at Samsung Card Hall located in Blue Square.
The musical tells the story of “Elisabeth,” the Empress of Austria, through the lens of her obsession with “Death,” as her marriage and empire crumble at the turn of the century.
When the musical originally premiered in Korea in 2012, it recorded number one in presale numbers for 10 consecutive weeks, and also took first place in ticket sales for the first quarter of the year. Since its premiere, the musical has opened up 120 shows for a total of 150,000 audience members.
With the return of “Elisabeth” for the first time in two years, Ock Joo Hyun, Shin Sung Rok, Se7en, Jeon Dong Suk, and more will be gracing the stage.
On trying his hand at his first musical, Se7en expressed, “I’m excited and looking forward to standing on my first musical stage. I will show the most dynamic character of ‘Death’ thus far.”
