Musical “The Days” has unveiled the star-studded cast of their upcoming 10th anniversary performance!
“The Days” is an original Korean jukebox musical based around the songs of the beloved later singer Kim Kwang Seok. It is set in the security office of the Blue House, the residence of the South Korean president, and takes place over 20 years.
The musical first premiered in 2013 to acclaim from critics and audience members, and went on to sweep 11 total Creative Musical Awards. For the past 10 years, “The Days” has set records with each season and is now considered one of the greatest jukebox musicals. Since its premiere, the musical has garnered over 550,000 viewers.
Ahead of the musical’s upcoming 10th anniversary, “The Days” has unveiled its star-studded cast that includes both returning actors and new members. Returning cast members who have participated in every season since the premiere include Yoo Joon Sang, Seo Hyun Chul, Lee Jung Yul, Kim San Ho, and Park Jung Pyo. New cast members include Kim Gun Woo, GOT7’s Youngjae, and more.
Starring in the lead role of Jung Hak are Yoo Joon Sang, Lee Geon Myung, Oh Man Seok, and Uhm Ki Joon. Jung Hak is the head of security at the Blue House and a cold-hearted perfectionist.
