Actor Kim Seon Ho to Make Long-Awaited Comeback in a Theater Play Performance, “Touching the Void”
Kdrama fans, the long and heartbreaking wait will be over very soon! Our beloved “Start-Up” and “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” actor Kim Seon Ho to make his highly-anticipated comeback in a theater play performance called “Touching the Void”.
On May 13, Korean media reported that actor Kim Seon Ho would star in a theater play performance by The Best Play with the title “Touching the Void”. This wonderful news also appeared on the official Instagram account of Kim Seon Ho Salt Entertainment agency, confirming the actor’s comeback.
What is “Touching the Void” About?
Produced by The Best Play, “Touching the Void” is a theatrical play telling the stories of two mountain hikers who take on a path and journey nobody has attempted before. The play is based on the true story of British mountaineers Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, who climbed the western ice wall of Siula Grande in the Andes Mountains of Peru in 1985 using an extremely technical pathway.
This performance will mark a crucial time in South Korean theatrical play performance history. That is because “Touching the Void” will also feature the rare and unique ‘mountain distress’ situations. Previously, it was extremely challenging to perform such play on stage because of the technology limitations.
However, Kim Seon Ho theater play performance comeback, “Touching the Void,” will awaken your five senses and imagination. With its magical moments, you will travel from Scottish Pub to a huge rock wall in England’s national park. Then, suddenly, Kim Seon Ho and his colleagues will invite you to join them on an electrifying journey to the middle of a snow mountain in Peru.
A Grand Comeback as The Main Character in “Touching the Void” Theater Play Performance
So, what is Kim Seon Ho character in this seemingly magnificent theater play performance?
After a beautiful showcase in his previous stage, “Ice”, in this play, Kim Seon Ho will play the main character, Joe, who gets trapped in the wilderness of snow mountains.
Joe is the elder mountaineer of 25 years old who climbs the Peruvian Andes with his younger partner, Simon Yates (23). Despite having limited experience, they decided to embrace their courage and embark on a first ascend using an extreme technical route of the West Face of Siula Grande mountain (6,334 meters) in 1985.
When both young mountaineers reached the summit, the bad weather suddenly swamped them. As a result, their descent journey became a life-threatening situation that challenged both their lives and their relationship. Especially after Joe slipped, fell, and broke his tibia, his survival was incredibly based on Simon’s empathy and loyalty.
Kim Seon Ho and His Journey of Careful Reset and Remedy Back into the Korean Entertainment Industry
Previously, despite the false controversies and cruel slanders against him, Kim Seon Ho managed to solidly secure his movie debut, “Sad Tropics”. Then, however, the actor also announced that he wouldn’t take any more projects aside from “Sad Tropics” and its related promotions. It made us wonder if Kim Seon Ho decided to go on a hiatus.
But no, he didn’t. With the constant support and resilience of his Seonhohada crusaders, our King of Expression, Kim Seon Ho, is slowly making his journey back into the Korean Entertainment industry. He simply needs to take time for a careful reset and remedy.
As we all know, the previous slanders against Kim Seon Ho had taken a huge toll on him. That is especially considering his reserved nature. The whole nation turned against Kim Seon Ho without further examination as if he was some kind of sinner.
Then, after the true story revealed, Kim Seon Ho turned the table. He fought back and became the first actor who canceled the cancel culture itself. And, of course, it was all thanks to Kim Seon Ho’s kindhearted nature and his loyal Seonhohada fans.
Still, it doesn’t mean that the harsh accusations meant nothing to him. That is why Kim Seon Ho took his time away from the public and chose to start over with a theater play performance.
After all, Kim Seon Ho once mentioned that it was his acting classes for theater play that had cured his traumatic past. It helped him overcome his traumatic childhood, and learned that getting attention is not something he’d need to fear.
“I changed after studying plays; it was kind of like training. I overcame my trauma and started acting.”Kim Seon Ho.
How “Touching the Void” Character Joe Helps Kim Seon Ho Heal and Fulfill His Promise
So, how does “Touching the Void” help Kim Seon Ho heal?
Kim Seon Ho’s role, Joe, is someone who gets badly hurt during his journey back from the summit. His survival purely depends on how far his partner, Simon, is willing to risk his life to help him.
Hence, this character would require Kim Seon Ho to channel his inner feelings of being helpless and vulnerable amidst the harsh circumstances around him. Additionally, he must embrace the feeling of being 100% dependent on his partner in their journey back into civilization.
In such a situation, Joe will help Kim Seon Ho heals himself and accept his feelings and circumstances better. Moreover, embracing and performing Joe’s feelings and emotions during those frightening moments will make Kim Seon Ho understand that when all odds seem to be against him, his most vulnerable situation is really a defining moment to make him return stronger than ever.
Loyalty and Betrayals
Additionally, the role of Joe in “Touching the Void” will also help Kim Seon Ho realize a deeper appreciation in the people who are willing to fight with him.
In the play, Joe has his partner, Simon, who’s willing to risk his life to help him return alive. At the same time, Kim Seon Ho has always had his Seonhohada crusaders who are willing to go to such length (and over) to help their beloved actor make his long-awaited comeback unscathed.
The difference is, while Simon betrayed Joe in the end, Seonhohada will always have Kim Seon Ho’s back. They will defend and fight for him even in the most impossible situations. Seonhohada gives Kim Seon Ho a precious sense of loyalty that is extremely priceless and unrivaled, which he would soon better realize and thankful for through his role as Joe in “Touching the Void”.
And ultimately, by accepting his vulnerability and circumstances, Kim Seon Ho will be able to become an actor who can repay all his fans’ support wholeheartedly, just as he promised.
