Film and musical actor Jo Seung-woo (Tazza) is currently serving in the military, but with his discharge fast approaching (October), interest is heating up about his next career move. There are reports that he will return in the musical Jekyll and Hyde, which he has acted in before. (Watch clip below.) His management gave a more cautious answer but confirmed that Jo is “considering it seriously.”
Jekyll and Hyde is scheduled to raise its curtain on November 28 in Seoul and will run for five months. Jo will be released from military service at the end of October, so he’ll have to jump right into rehearsals.
This musical is the one that solidified 30-year-old Jo’s status as a bona fide musical star. He debuted in 1999 in the film Chunhyang, then went on to act in The Classic, Love Phobia, Tazza, and Go Go 70′s. His most recent project before serving army duty was The Sword With No Name, a historical romance-melodrama with Su Ae.
