Kim Seon Ho Gears Up For Return To Acting With Poster For New Play Based On “Touching The Void”
Kim Seon Ho’s upcoming play “Touching the Void” has unveiled its poster!
After over eight months outside of the spotlight, the actor is currently gearing up to make his return to acting in the Korean version of the play “Touching the Void.” The play is based on the real-life story of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, two British mountaineers who came close to death during their descent from the summit of Siula Grande in the Andes, which was previously documented in Joe Simpson’s book “Touching the Void” and its subsequent film adaptation.
On June 22, Kim Seon Ho’s agency SALT Entertainment released a poster for the upcoming play, which will run from July 8 to September 18 at Seoul’s Art One Theater.
The poster, which offers a glimpse of Kim Seon Ho in his starring role as the stranded Joe Simpson, references the fact that the two leads were the first mountaineers in history to climb the West Face of Siula Grande. The caption reads, “No one has ever seen this view before. Right now, we are the only ones who have seen it.”
