According to an insider in the musical industry who spoke with enews recently, “Kangin has been cast as the lead and will appear on stage on September 1 at Tokyo’s U-Port Hall when the musical Goong will premiere.”

In the musical, Kangin will portray the role of Lee Shin.

In the drama and musical, Lee Shin is the crown prince who possesses good looks and intellect and is a bit prickly on the outside but holds a warm heart inside. There is a certain amount of expectation for Kangin who received praise for his acting in Attack on the Pin-Up Boys.

In 2009, after a series of incidents, Kangin temporarily halted his activities with Super Junior and enlisted in the army in July in 2010 before being discharged this April.

Regarding Kangin’s casting, Group Eight, the production company behind the musical Goong, remained mum telling enews, “Nothing has been decided yet,” while SM Entertainment said, “It is true [Kangin] has received many offers from musical productions.”
