Kim Junsu To Reprise Leading Role In Musical “Dracula” For First Time In 4 Years
JYJ’s Kim Junsu will be reprising his role in the musical “Dracula”!
On November 11, his agency C-JeS Entertainment stated, “At the time of the first run of the show, Kim Junsu shed the dark and scary image of Dracula and portrayed a more relatable vampire with a painful past. And now, he will be returning to the production after four years.”
The musical “Dracula” is based on the novel of the same name by Bram Stoker and tells the story of Dracula, a vampire who has loved one woman for a thousand years. The musical premiered in Korea in 2014 and held a two-week encore performance in 2016. As the 2016 performances wrapped up in February and the upcoming performances will begin in February 2020, it will be four years since he played the role.
Kim Junsu performed in both the 2014 and 2016 stages, and he is set to return for the 2020 stages as well. He stated, “‘Dracula’ brings new challenges every season. I’m so happy and excited to be greeting everyone through ‘Dracula’ for the first time in a while. I will work hard to prepare for the role so that I can make an unforgettable performance for everyone.”
The musical “Dracula” will be performed from February 11 to June 7 in 2020 at the Charlotte Theater in Seoul.
