Kang Ji-hwan raises a glass to Cafe In’s first show

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.

Even on the prettiest people I always hated those big aviator-type shades. But in that photo above, I gotta applaud the guy for pulling off the look, especially since I have such disdain for big shades - seriously I have no idea why; maybe it was because someone made me watch Empire of the Ants at such a young age (I'm talking to you cuz)? Seriously, big bug eyes gives me the creeps. Or maybe it's because it's such a shame to me that people so willingly cover up their awesome features behind such humongous objects. Anyways, looking good hot stuff! Looking good.

lol. That's deep. I guess you're planning to stop at three (kids)?

Anonymous @11, I think there are subs... which is kind of odd in a theatre.

haha. Yup, I kinda cheated because I already have 3 kids, and am not planning on anymore! LOL But, seriously, how awesome would it be to be a part of that audience to be able to watch K!J!H! perform live?

he looks great. out of curiosity, how does the audience understand what he's saying? are their subtitles somewhere or do they just get the gist through the context?

They probably have some sort of electronic board with the subtitles. That is what they did when I watched this Japanese play. I can't remember what else they did.
It was very different from watching a play in your native language or one that you're fluent in.

nope, Korean, hence the subs for a musical, which is odd but those Japanese ajummas want to know what he's saying!

no question is stupid. ^^

So I'm sure someday I'll go to Korea and Japan. Am I weird that I already know that I'll plan that holiday around stage plays and musicals featuring celebs? I probably am.
