Korean star Kim Seon-ho will star in the play “Touching the Void” next month.
His agency Salt Entertainment has released the schedule for “Touching the Void,” which will run from July 8 to September 18 at Daehakro Art One Theater 2 in Jongno, Seoul.
“Touching the Void,” which will star Shin Sung-min, Kim Seonho, Lee Hwi-jong and Lee Jin Hee, is based on the 1988 book of the same name written by mountaineer Joe Simpson. This is the experience of Simpson and Simon Yates on their descent from Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes.
A film of the same name was released in 2003 and a play premiered in the UK in 2018.
In the Korean play, Kim Seon-ho will play the role of Simpson. He will appear in the play from July 9.
This will be Kim Seon-ho’s first comeback project since October, when the drama “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” ended and a personal controversy erupted. He will also star in the film “Sad Tropics”, which began filming last December.
Kim Seon-ho began his theater career in 2009 with the play “New Boeing Boeing”.
In May, Kim Seon-ho wrote a letter to fans and said, “Sometimes a month felt like a year, while there were other times when I couldn’t keep up with my time. It made it difficult for me to manage my emotions. I believe you would have gone through the same thing because of me,” according to SBS News.
He added, “I’m sorry to have put you through a difficult time because of my shortcomings. I know how hard it is to heal after being heartbroken. I am sincerely sorry for those who supported me because I fear that you have a scar in your heart.
“Thanks to you, however, my time is slowly on the right track. I’m a little hesitant about how this letter will be understood by you, but I hope that everyone who supports me will have a time that passes according to your terms; neither too fast nor too slow,” he said.
