Minutes before the live show, Kim Seonho’s staff shared a photo of the actor on Instagram, “Touching The Void, Kim Seonho’s first performance! It will start soon.” Kim Seonho is wearing a Touching The Void jacket while he sits on the stage facing the seats, musing. Even though his face is not shown, he still radiates handsomeness and his gaze at the audience seats seems to convey profound gratitude for all the things in his life that made him reach this far. It could also mean savoring the vibe of theater where he began acting, grew as an actor, met great long-time friends, and perhaps, where he will grow old performing.
Although thousands of fans overseas are not able to see him perform live on stage, they sent him warm messages across social media: “Welcome back to theater!” “Congratulations!” “All the best!” “Break a leg!” “Fighting” “You will nail it!” “Enjoy the stage!” “Always rooting for you!” “We are so proud of you!” “We love you always!” Many fans also expressed, “You are worth the wait, Kim Seonho!”
