It was revealed on the 7th that TVXQ's leader, U-Know Yunho will take on the main lead role of Prince Shin in the upcoming Goong musical scheduled for this September. The musical is an adaptation of popular drama with the same name and catapulted Joo Ji Hoon into stardom although his star has somwhat dimmed in the last year and he is now serving in the army. This will be Yunho's second attempt at acting after his drama debut with Heading Into The Ground last year which was somewhat unfortunate. The musical producer revealed the reasons for choosing Yunho, "We decided to choose Yunho because of his exceptional dancing, singing capabilities and mastery of the stage. All that has been demonstrated on stage through concerts. Added to his prince-like appearance, there's no ideal person other than him for this role. We look forward to a charismatic showing by him for his musical debut." Others confirmed for the musical include Lee Chang Hee and Jung Dong Hwa, SNSD's Sooyoung's sister Choi Soo Jin and MILK's member Seo Hyun Jin. Group Eight will be producing the musical and it will start from September 8th at the Seoul National Museum's theater.
