Excerpt from Kdramastars article :
According to his agency, King Kong Entertainment, the 31-year-old actor will soon begin preparations for the musical, which opens on Nov. 21.
“The event means a lot to him because he has been craving a chance to take the stage as a musical performer,” said a King Kong representative.
Since graduating Sejong University, Yoo appeared in two theater productions, “The Good Person of Szechwan” in 2008 and “The Understudy” in 2009.
“The Man Who Walked Through Walls” is based on a story by French author Marcel Aymé. In the story, a 42-year-old man named Dutilleul wakes up one day to realize he can walk through walls. Suddenly his unremarkable life is transformed into a very remarkable one. He wants to become an extraordinary burglar and the ability to walk through walls can help him realize that dream. Dutilleul also finds love. He meets a married woman named Isabelle, who is locked in her room by her possessive husband. The walls of her bedroom do not present a barrier for Dutilleul.
Yoo will share the musical role with singer and actor Lee Ji Hoon, who was last seen in the drama “You’re The Best Lee Soon Shin.” Isabelle will be played alternately by actresses Bae Da Hye and Moon Jin Ah.
Tickets reservation can be made starting from September 22nd, 2015 on Interpark website.
