SNSD lead lands musical role
The show, based on a Japanese novel, is a love story between a surfer boy and a girl named Kaoru who cannot go outside during the day due to a rare disease. Kaoru keeps her hopes up by singing songs that she writes herself.
The book was originally written by Aya Denkawa in 2006, and has been made into a drama and film in Japan.
The musical will be staged in the M Theater at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts from May 7 to 29.
