In this case, Anna (played by Han Seung-yeon), a girl band lead singer who can't sing,...More

It took some 30 years for the Tony Award-winning musical "La Cage aux Folles" to come to Korea. The musical, shortened to "La Cage" here, has been warmly welcomed by audiences here, who are captivated by the show's spectacle.

Press conference for military musical "Voyage of Life" [tentative title] With the increasing number of celebrity officers serving in the military compared to previous years, the quantity and quality of military-produced contents have been changing.

And two years later, the Korean military is producing musical "Voyage of Life" [tentative title] with Lee Joon-ki and Joo Ji-hoon playing the lead roles. If 2008's production 'Mine" was a story about a father and a son, "Voyage of Life" -- produced in celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Korean War -- focuses on the "communication between the war generation and the post-war generation",...More

[photographed by Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] Q: You have attended many press conference outside the military, but it must feel different standing here as a military officer. Lee Joon-ki: The lower rank will go first. (laugh) When I was doing press conferences outside, I felt comfortable and threw jokes around without making any adjustments. But now that I am a military officer, I think I feel a little more nervous and stiff. I don't use the so-called "military speech" but I am disappointed because I feel like a solider at heart. But as a military officer, I feel a sense of duty about doing a production that will be a commemoration for the country. Joo Ji-hoon: I am using casual speech because I have to explain about the musical and the character, but this is actually more uncomfortable,...More
