Park Hyung Sik Confirmed For Musical “Elisabeth” + JYJ’s Kim Junsu Considering Role As His First After Discharge From Military
Park Hyung Sik will soon be appearing in his first musical in two years, while JYJ’s Kim Junsu may also join the cast!
On August 28, it was confirmed by Park Hyung Sik’s agency UAA that he will be appearing in the upcoming production of the musical “Elisabeth” and playing the character Der Tod (also known as The Death).
After making his debut with ZE:A in 2010, Park Hyung Sik has appeared in many musicals and dramas, and his most recent musical was “The Three Musketeers” in 2016.
Kim Junsu’s agency C-JeS Entertainment also recently confirmed that he is considering appearing in “Elisabeth” after his discharge from the army on November 5. They stated, “We ask for your understanding about the fact that we cannot convey any concrete plans as he is still in the midst of fulfilling his duty as a conscripted police officer.”
Kim Junsu previously played the role of Der Tod in “Elisabeth” in 2012 and 2013, and he earned the Best Actor award at the 2012 Korean Musical Awards for his portrayal of the character. It is common for more than one actor to take a role in a production of a musical in Korea, allowing the cast to alternate performances.
“Elisabeth” will open on November 17 at the Blue Square Interpark Hall in Seoul.
