f(x)‘s Luna is going to be making her Broadway debut soon!
Luna is set to be one of 3 main roles in the musical Kpop, which is an original musical about the trials you have to go through to make it as a K-Pop star. It’s currently going to be released as a musical on Broadway this year after first starting as an off-Broadway show in 2017.
Regarding the storyline, one of the composers of the musical, Helen Park, talked about how the story reflects much of K-Pop’s important features.
Kpop tells an original story of global superstars, putting everything on the line for a special one-night-only concert event, during which one music idol’s inner struggle threatens to dismantle an entertainment powerhouse.
The world we explore in Kpop is cutthroat, relentless in its pursuit of perfection, full of passionate, hugely ambitious artists, and ultimately a source of joy for the audience to develop the world.
In the musical, Luna plays the role of MwE, one of three K-Pop idols in the production. Luna has tons of previous experience as a musical theatre actress in Korea, starring in musicals such as Legally Blonde, Rebecca, Gone With The Wind, and more!
Luna talked about her upcoming Broadway debut, and shared what an honor it is for her!
Broadway represents the pinnacle of my achievement in this profession. So being able to bring my culture to the fans who flock here to see a Broadway show is the honor of my life.
Preview shows of KPop will start premiering on October 13, 2022, and will be showing for 10 days. The opening show of the musical is slated for November 20, 2022.
