Nam Tae Hyun to star in 'Mephisto' musical tonight despite earlier reports


Nam Tae Hyun will be starring in the 'Mephisto' ('Mefisto') musical tonight despite earlier reports.

On June 7, reports revealed Nam Tae Hyun would be leaving the cast due to controversy surrounding cheating accusations by his now ex-girlfriend Jang Jae In, but producers clarified they were simply in discussion. On June 8, 'Mephisto' producers stated, "He'll be performing on stage today, but we have yet to receive anything about the schedule afterwards."

It's reported producers found it difficult to find a replacement for Nam Tae Hyun, who plays the lead, on such short notice. 

As previously reported, Jang Jae In posted messages allegedly revealing Nam Tae Hyun was cheating on her, and he's since posted a handwritten letter of apology. The two singers confirmed they were dating this past April.

I feel bad for the producers. They're probably tearing their hair out to look for a new lead on such short notice.

Whether to change NTH is the producer's decision based on the box office, but it is strange that a musical doesn't prepare understudy for lead characters. I think the producer wants to see if NTH really affects the box office performance before he makes the final decision.
