[NEWS] Onew in talks of being the lead actor in a musical

SHINee’s Onew along with label mate, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun are in talks to take on the lead role of SM Entertainment’s musical adaption of the popular West End production, Singin’ in the Rain.

Singin’ in the Rain was originally a movie produced in 1952 and adapted into a musical in 1983. SM Entertainment’s subsidiary, SM Entertainment Culture & Contents (SM C&C), bought the rights of said musical and are now in the works of producing it.

A representative of SM Entertainment stated that, “Both idols have an extraordinary passion for musicals. In their previous ventures (into musicals), they were well known to be hard working during rehearsals despite their jam-packed schedules. They have great talent and they show effortless skills.”

SHINee’s leader, Onew has appeared in two musicals over in the past few years; he first made his musical debut performance as Jubong in the 2010 production of Brothers Were Brave and also took on the lead role of Drew in the hit rock and roll musical, Rock of Ages.

Singin’ in the Rain will start its first run on June 5 ending on August 3, showing at Chungmu Art Hall in Seoul.
