Before you start to roll your eyes thinking I am creating yet another outlet here on my blog to love on G.O, let me explain!!!!^^
It is no doubt that my introduction to Korean musical theater was generously delivered to me firsthand by G.O. This is a fact. And I will not deny that you will see him come across this section of the blog from time to time. What I am really trying to accomplish by adding this section, however, is exposure and awareness in general to the very eclectic, powerful and successful musical theater that is coming out of South Korea.
I hope to discuss many aspects of Korean musical theater, including the phenomenon of the K-pop idol gracing many musical theater stages and how their move between concert and theater stages differ, hinder and/or help the productions, as well as the career of the idols themselves. I also hope to use this as a vehicle to introduce western musical theater directors, producers and composers to the amazing talent and productions coming out of South Korea.
Naturally, G.O will be here. It’s a given.^^ But I promise, I will not start with him. >.<
