Joo Ji-hoon is Don Juan
Joo Ji-hoon (Devil, Goong) is debuting on the musical stage in a production of Don Juan. Last seen in the movie Antique Bakery, the 27-year-old Joo promises to show a “whole new side of me that hasn’t been seen in dramas or movies.” That shouldn’t be hard, since we’ve never seen him sing or dance the flamenco before.
He’ll alternate the role alongside musical actors Kim Da-hyun and Kang Tae-eul, and while Korean actors will take the acting roles, the dancing will be performed by 13 Spanish flamenco dancers, including Maria Lopez and Ricardo Lopez, who led the version of Don Juan that premiered in Montreal in 2004.
In addition to the musical, Joo has a movie that’s preparing for release on February 5, the melodrama Kitchen which co-stars his Devil castmate Shin Mina. The musical will premiere on February 6 and run through March 8.
