Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, And INFINITE’s Sunggyu Cast In Military Musical

On July 3, it was announced that actors Ji Chang Wook, Kang Ha Neul, and INFINITE’s Sunggyu were cast for a military musical titled “Shinheung Military Academy” (literal translation).

Already known for their talents on stage, the three were selected through open auditions. They plan on beginning rehearsals for the musical somewhere in Seoul early July.

The musical takes place in 1910 and tells the story of young people who gathered in Manchuria to start a military academy during the Japanese colonial era, as well as their efforts to restore their country’s independence from the Imperial Japanese Army.

Ji Chang Wook and Kang Ha Neul, who previously worked together on the musical “Thrill Me,” are already garnering excitement after news of their reunion.

Produced by the military with the help of the production company, Shownote, the musical will hold its first stage in September at the National Museum of Korea and plans to show a total of 19 shows. It will also hold a nationwide tour by the end of the year.
