Tickets went on sale on Thursday for “Closer” the stage play starring Moon Geun Young in her theater debut with co-star Eom Ki Joon, and was sold out in two minutes for its first show.
That puts Moon’s selling power on comparable levels with top idol stars; two other productions that sold out with similar speed were the musical “Mozart,” thanks to the name draw of Xiah Junsu, and the “Goong Musical,” thanks to U-Know Yunho.
Moon Geun Young alone would be reason enough to check out the play, but part of the interest, I’m sure, comes from the strip-dancing her character performs in the play. I wouldn’t call the interest necessarily prurient, but driven by curiosity; Moon grew up in the public eye and has successfully made the transition to an adult actress, and has done so without playing on a sexual image or “sexy transformation.” (She attempted a sexier image once in her late teens but the public wasn’t buying it, since she still had such a strong “cute” image.) Therefore this play is the first time she’ll be portraying an overtly sexy/sexual adult role.
“Closer” will open on August 6th and runs through October 10th.
Below are a few photos snapped behind the scenes at rehearsals.
