'KPOP' sets full Broadway cast
K-pop star Luna will lead the new musical.
KPOP has announced its full Broadway cast, joining the previously announced K-pop star Luna in the leading role. The show will begin performances this fall, playing its first show October 13 at the Circle in the Square Theatre.
The cast also includes Julia Abueva, Will Brill, Major Curda, Joomin Hwang, Jinwoo Jung, Jiho Kang, Amy Keum, James Kho, Bo Hyung Kim, Eddy Lee, Jully Lee, Min Young Lee, Timothy H. Lee, Abraham Lim, Kate Mina Lin, Aubie Merrylees, Patrick Park, Kevin Woo, and John Yi. Among them, Kim, Woo, and Min Young Lee are K-pop musicians who have each launched solo and group careers. A total of 16 cast members are making their Broadway debuts.
KPOP takes audiences behind the scenes of the K-pop musical phenomenon, centering on artists preparing for a special one-night-only concert. One performer has a struggle that threatens one of the industry's biggest music labels. KPOP premiered off Broadway in 2017 and now has the distinction of being the first Broadway musical about Korean culture.
