Popular comic-turned-drama “Full House” gets a musical treatment. As earlier reported, the musical features a cast of idols, including BEAST’s Yoseob, A Pink’s Jung Eun Ji and VIXX’s Leo, among others. “Full House” races towards its grand opening with the release of a poster.
“Full House” the musical follows closely the 2004 drama that tells the story of Lee Young Jae, a prickly actor who comes to share his house with down-on-her-luck writer Han Ji Eun and how their marriage of convenience turns into love.
BEAST’s Yoseob, VIXX’s Leo, Kim San Ho, and Seo Ha Joon alternate for the Lee Young Jae role, played in the drama by Hallyu star Rain. A Pink’s Jung Eun Ji, JOO, and Kwak Sun Young will alternate for the role of Han Ji Eun, originated by Song Hye Kyo.
The idol cast is raising anticipation with their appearance in “Full House.” Yoseob has previously proved his ability with musicals, starring in “Gwanghwamun Sonata” and “Joseph’s Amazing Dream Coat.” Jung Eun Ji alternated as lead for “Legally Blonde” in 2011. VIXX’s Leo, though he is taking on a musical for the first time, is also expected to live up to his potential.
“Full House” the musical had been in development since 2009 but has finally come together when producer Song Jae Jun got the right composers and arrangers to join in the project.
“Full House” opens at the Hongik Daehakro Art Center Grand Theater on April 11.
