Korean Actress Stages West End CoupThe West End of London is the dream stage for actors in musicals. Although Broadway is the most coveted stage for plays, Westend is the best when it comes to musicals. Most well-loved musicals, including 'Le Miserables,' started off in London.
A Korean has been given the chance to stand on this dream stage. Kim Nah-e, a graduate of the Royal Ballet Upper School, has made a one-year contract to perform eight times a week in the West End.
Kim will perform in Magnum Production's new version of the 'King and I.' As auditions are not yet finished, the final role castings in the musical will only be decided next March.
'As an inexperienced actress I don't expect a big part in this great production,' said Kim who is now in Korea for a visit. 'I have no experience on stage, so I want to learn things one by one.'
