The musical “Death Note,” one of the most highly anticipated theatrical spectacles of the year, has raised its curtain at the Opera House of Seongnam Arts Center in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, south of Seoul.
The show _ featuring music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Jack Murphy and book by Ivan Menchell _ is directed by Japanese director Tamiya Kuriyama. It premiered in Tokyo in April, before staging its first licensed production in Korea.
The musical is based on the internationally popular Japanese manga series of the same name, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. It revolves around high school student Light Yagami, who picks up a “God of Death” notebook, which enables the user to kill anyone. As soon as he realizes the power of the “Death Note,” Light decides to build an ideal world by killing criminals based on his own justice.
In the Korean production, top musical actor Hong Kwang-ho, who just returned from a one-year stint as Thuy in “Miss Saigon” in London’s West End, takes the role of Light, while K-pop sensation Kim Jun-su of JYJ plays Light’s arch-rival, detective L, a genius who tries to put a stop to Light’s immature attempts.
