FT Island’s Song Seung Hyun debuts as a musical actor in Japan
FT Island’s Song Seung Hyun will debut as a musical actor in Japan.
On September 19, Song will make his musical acting debut in the musical Jack The Ripper, playing the role of Daniel. He will also perform in the musical on October 1 and 2.
Born in 1992, Song attracted a lot of attention by being cast in the role of Daniel as the youngest actor. He has already proved his talent as a musical actor with his good acting and singing skills in the musical Jack The Ripper, which was performed in Korea from August 8 through 23.
Song says, “I’m nervous to meet my Japanese fans as a musical actor because I’ve always met them as a member of FT Island. I’ll try my utmost to give the best performance for them.”
Song is a guitarist, rapper, and vocalist in the popular band FT Island. While he was recording songs for FT Island’s fourth album, Five Treasure Box, which was released on September 10, he has prepared a lot for the musical, spending about twelve hours everyday for practice.
The musical Jack The Ripper has been one of the most popular musicals in Korea for three consecutive years. Since its premiere in 2009, it has been staged twice as an encore performance.
