K-actor Kim Sun Ho to Make First Acting Return in Summer 2022 Theater Production of Documentary Survival Tale Touching the Void

K-actor Kim Sun Ho has been cast in the upcoming July 2022 Seoul theater stage production of 2003 documentary movie Touching the Void.

He joins the cast of mostly theater regulars including Lee Hwi Jong playing Joe Simpson and Jung Hwan as Simon Yates. I say this is Kim Sun Ho’s first return since his October 2021 scandal because the movie he just finished filming Sad Tropics is not yet scheduled for a release so this theater play will definitely come out before that.
