The musical ‘Goong’, which is garnering great attention for casting TVXQ member U-Know Yunho for its lead role, has revealed its teaser poster.
With a unique fantasy setting of ‘Korea of 2010 is a Constitutional Monarchy’, the teaser poster perfectly captures the crossover concept as it shows Chae Kyung, who becomes a princess overnight, wearing an elaborate wig and imperial family uniform but also holding a mobile phone and teddy bear. On this original drawing from the comic book, they added the title of ‘Goong’ with imperial designs which reflected their confidence of becoming Korea’s best domestic musical.
Netizens have been showing a heated response to the recent announcement of the musical’s cast including TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho, saying things like “The sync between the characters in the book and the cast is amazing. I can’t wait for the musical,” and “It’s definitely worth the wait. I can’t think of a better person to be a prince than U-Know Yunho, with his prince-like looks, great singing and dancing skills and polite character.”
They also expressed their expectations for the domestic musical by saying, “Please make this a great musical. So that it becomes the stepping stone to further diversify domestics musical contents!” and “I can’t wait because this will be a domestic production, and will be different from all the other musicals that are imported from other countries. I hope that it becomes a production that will aid in the development of the Korean musical culture.”
The musical will be co-produced by MaeilKyungjae Media Group (Daily Economy Media Group) and Group8, and will begin showing on September 8th at the Korean National Museum.
