I’ve been mentioning Kang Ji-hwan‘s musical for a while, and Cafe In has finally lifted the curtain on its Tokyo Globe Theater run with its opening show on October 16.
The following are photos taken from that first performance, which features Kang in a comic-melo performance playing two roles: as a playboy sommelier, and as a friendly date coach. Kang received a standing ovation for his performance, and gave fans a little something extra with a prepared encore number.
This production of the musical will put on 23 shows and runs through November 7. More than 20,000 theatergoers are expected to attend the performances in Japan; meanwhile, Cafe In will run in Seoul through the end of the year, starring SS501’s Kim Hyung-joon in the lead.
