On August 26, it was revealed in various news outlets (e.g. Naver) that one of our favorite military men, EXO’s Xiumin and SHINee’s Onew, have been confirmed to star in the Republic of Korea Army‘s upcoming musical called Return: The Promise of The Day.
This is the Army’s original musical production that connects previous musicals Mine, Sail of Life, The Promise (starring Super Junior’s Leeteuk), and Shinheung Military Academy (starring actors Ji Changwook and Kang Haneul). It’s based on the discovery of the remains of combat heroes who sacrificed their lives to protect their country in the Korean War. Return: The Promise of The Day will be performed in Olympic Park’s Woori Finance Art Hall in Seoul from October 22 to December 1.
According to this article, other idols who are currently serving in the military, including Jo Kwon, VIXX’s N, BtoB’s Changsub, Yoon Jisung, and INFINITE’s Sunggyu and Sungyeol, will also take part in this musical. The official poster is also available on the link.
