Actor Lee Dong-gun commented being on Musical ‘The Bodyguard’.
On the 4th, ‘The Bodyguard’ production presentation was held at Blue Square Chaos Hall, Hannam-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Actor and Actress Kim Sun-young, Son Seung-yeon, Park Ki-young, Haena, Lee Dong-gun, Kang Kyung-joon, and Ye Joo-yeol, Head of CJ ENM’s Performance Business Division, attended.
Lee Dong-Gun said “The film ‘the Bodyguard’, which I met when I was young, still lingers on my heart. So when a suggestion for the musical appearance came, it was hard to refuse” after he decided to perform ‘Bodyguard’ as his first musical debut.
“Because Frank doesn’t dance and sing, all I have to do is act hard, so I’m confident that I can digest the role of Frank” he says.
The musical is based on Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner’s film of the same title, which has been popular around the world dealing with the love story between a bodyguard and a pop star threatened by a stalker.
The film includes 15 immortal OST that set the No. 1 score on the Billboard chart for 14 consecutive weeks, including “I Will Always Love You,” “I Have Nothing,” and “Run To You.”
Kim Sun-young, Son Seung-yeon, Park Ki-young, Haena are to play role of Diva Rachel Maron, and Lee Dong-gun and Kang Kyung-jun are starring her best bodyguard Frank Palmer who protects her.
The musical ‘The Bodyguard’ will premiere at the LG Art Center from November 28.
