Some of us are barely adjusting to spring, and Joo-won (Level 7 Civil Servant, Gaksital) is already planning his autumn activities. Raise yer hands if you feel lazy. He’ll be returning to his musical roots in the fall, to co-headline the Korean production of Ghost The Musical, based on the 1990 movie Ghost, and pop singer Ivy will be the Demi Moore to his Patrick Swayze. Time to rev up that pottery wheel.
Joo-won debuted as a musical actor in the 2006 production of Altar Boyz and has since done dramas and films, basically without a single break. Ivy was one of the better pop singers of her day, but hit a massive roadblock in her career with a scandal that sent her into hiding for a while, and has since become a musical actor (Chicago). It’s nice to see her name back in headlines, and I think she’ll be great live.

Ghost The Musical by Bruce Joel Rubin (with music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard) is the musical adaptation of the classic 1990 movie where Patrick Swayze dies and lingers around Demi Moore as a ghost (in a totally non-creepy way, even though it sounds creepy on paper). The musical opened at the Manchester Opera House in 2011, went from West End to Broadway, and is now doing UK and US tours. Overseas productions are being planned for Australia, the Netherlands, and Korea.
The Seoul production will premiere in November.
