Beast's Yang Yo-seob grabs musical lead

By Kim Ji-soo

Yang Yo-seob, main vocalist of the K-pop group Beast, will star in the musical "Full House," Cube Entertainment said Wednesday. The musical is based on a Korean cartoon series that was adapted into a television drama in 2004 with Rain and Song Hye-gyo in lead roles. Yang will play the character that Rain played. The drama was a big hit in Korea where it recorded 40 percent ratings and also became popular in Southeast Asia.

This is Yang's third musical appearance. He first appeared in the 2011 musical "Gwanghwamun Love Song," and followed it up with a starring role in the "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat" last year winning favorable reviews.

Chu and his daughter will film their commercial in early March, and it will be released in April.
