FNC Entertainment stated, "Choi Min Hwan has always been at the back of the stage playing the drums so this is his first time being in the front of the stage as a main role. Although he is nervous, he plans to show his professional side."
Choi Min Hwan has been casted as the main character of the musical, Jiyong. The character plays the role of a music director and singer that has a bright personality.
The musical was considered the best musicals of 2011-2012 and will be performed overseas in Japan this time. It is special because this musical is solely made with Korean traditional music and can be seen as a way to expand the Korean culture in other countries.
Most Korean productions that go overseas to Japan must have an overseas license to perform. However, this musical is made up of 100% Korean staff, actors and directors so they are able to perform royalty free.
The musical will be performed in Osaka on November 10-12 and in Tokyo on January 1-27.
