BoA’s Agency to Branch Out Into Stage Musicals

13 December 2007 - 01:25 PM

I don't if anyone put this up already....its came out 12-9

Pop stars BoA, Gang Ta, The Grace and TVXQ are to make the leap to stage musicals, which are enjoying a wave of popularity in Korea. SM Entertainment, the stars’ agency, said Wednesday it will start producing stage musicals next year. Other pop singers like Ok Ju-hyeon, Bada, Hey, Kim Tae-woo and Andy have already appeared in stage musicals to great success.
The Broadway musical “Xanadu” is highly likely to be the first show presented by SM Entertainment. Although the company did not officially confirm this, it apparently struck a license deal and is now seeking to rent a mid-sized theater with 600 to 800 seats, having already enquired at such venues as the M theater in the Sejong Center for Performing Arts or the Towol theater at the Seoul Arts Center. Yoo Hee-seong, the executive director of Seoul Metropolitan Musical Theater, said, “SM Entertainment’s musical division leader asked me whether it would be possible for SM Entertainment to rent the M theater in 2008 to present ‘Xanadu.’ I said the major theaters are booked, so it may be possible in 2009.”

“Xanadu” is an affectionate send-up of the 80s movie flop starring Olivia Newton-John. It is attractive to SM Entertainment as the company’s first musical show since it is a light comedy based around some catchy pop songs.

The company has been looking for ways to diversify since the music market shrank to a quarter of the size of its heyday. The entertainment giant has already purchased four small theaters including Teenteen Hall in Daehagno. It has an agent on Broadway and says it is pursuing license deals for several popular musicals. SM Entertainment director Lee Soo-man has already mentioned the possibility of branching out into musical production, especially to showcase BoA, several times.

The reaction of industry insiders was mixed. Kim Byeong-seok, the head of the performance department at CJ Entertainment, said, “SM Entertainment’s advance into the musical industry will play a positive role in boosting the size of the total market.” But he warned success of a musical depends on the quality of the show rather than the popularity of a star or a composer. “SM Entertainment needs to be careful to bear that in mind.”

동방신기는 내달 초 출시되는 모바일 게임 ‘알럽! 동방신기!’속 주인공 캐릭터로 등장했다. 동방신기가 게임 속에 등장하는 것은 이번이 처음이다.

‘알럽! 동방신기!’는 동방신기의 숙소에 든 도둑으로 인해 어려움에 처한 동방신기를 도와주면서 시작한다. 이후 함께 지내면서 의상 코디 및 숙소 인테리어 등 일거수일투족을 따라다니면서 게임을 즐긴다는 내용이다.

특히 동방신기의 미공개 사진들과 실제 음성을 삽입해 현실감을 높였다.

‘알럽! 동방신기’는 게임러쉬와 지오인터랙티브가 공동 개발한 모바일 게임으로 내달 초 SKT, KTF를 통해 출시되며 LG텔레콤은 12월 중순께 서비스 된다.

동방신기는 지난 5일과 6일 양일간 대만 타이페이 중산 축구경기장에서 대만 첫 단독콘서트를 성황리에 개최했으며 오는 12월 15일과 16일에는 태국 방콕에서 두 번째 콘서트를 열고 현지 팬들을 만날 계획이다.
