On August 14 in the afternoon, news outlets reported that Yoo Yeon Seok was considering (and shortly after confirmed) to perform in a musical titled “Le Passe-Muraille” (The Man Who Walked Through Walls).

Based on a short story published by Marcel Aymé in 1943, it tells the story about Dutilleul, a man who lives rather a mundane life as a civil servant. One day, he suddenly gain an ability to walk through walls. At first he was not happy with the extraordinary ability, even tried to get rid of it but couldn’t. So he had to live with an ability he didn’t want to have, and never use it intentionally. Later he has a new boss at work who makes everyone’s life hard including his, and Dutilleul gets to use his power to get back at him. Feeling the satisfaction out of it, he then started to crave for the thrills and adventures by using his power.

Yoo Yeon Seok is no stranger to musicals himself. He has experienced participating in musicals during his college days in Sejong University. But this musical marks his official musical debut.

The musical is said to start in November, but the finalised performance schedules and other details have not yet been determined. Once he wraps up his Haeohwa movie filming, he’ll start practising and doing rehearsals for Le Passe-Muraille.
