Choi Soo Jin, who will be standing on her first stage on September 27, said, “There are many difficult things about taking on the role of Yoo Jin. I’m taking care not to miss any emotions or special movements. I’m especially putting in a lot of effort to make a new Yoo Jin after the pure and clear Yoo Jin Choi Ji Woo portrayed. I hope this piece will come as a big present to those who have not forgotten the drama Winter Sonata and still love it.”

On her younger sister Sooyoung, Choi said, “My little sister always prays for me, and she gives me more strength than any other words or materials can. She always comes to my musicals to cheer for me, so I believe she will come this time also. I want to show her my best as her big sister.”

Director Yoon Suk Ho, the skilled director behind the beautiful scenes and brilliant directing in the Endless Love dramas, Autumn in My Heart, Winter Sonata, Summer Scent and Spring Waltz, is the head producer and art director for the musical Winter Sonata, while Yoo Hee Sung will take on the role of producer.
