JYJ’s Kim Jun-su cast in ‘Elisabeth’


Kim Jun-su from boy band JYJ, who was recently discharged from his 21-month military duty, is making his long-awaited return in the upcoming musical “Elisabeth.”

According to EMK Musical Company on Friday, Kim will play the role of Der Tod, a character that personifies death, from Nov. 17 to Feb. 10 at Blue Square in Interpark Hall, central Seoul.

“I am very happy to be back on stage playing the role of death. I will do my best to showcase an unforgettable performance [for my fans],” Kim said.

Singers Park Hyung-sik and Leo will alternate with Kim in playing Der Tod. Meanwhile, singers Oak Joo-hyun, Kim So-hyun and Shin Young-sook will take turns playing Elisabeth.

Kim debuted in 2004 as a member of boy band TVXQ, but left the group in 2010 along with members Park Yoo-chun and Kim Jae-joong to form the group JYJ.

He has also pursued a career as a musical performer starring in the musicals “Dracula” (2016) and “Dorian Gray” (2016).

Kim will be holding his “2018 Way Back Xia Concert” from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2, at Jamsil Arena in the Jamsil Sports Complex, southern Seoul.
