The musical will mark Leo’s fifth musical since making his debut as a musical actor in 2014 as Lee Young Jae in Full House. He has participated in the musicals Mata Hari as Armand, Monte Cristo as Albert, and The Last Kiss as Prince Rudolf.
Outside his career as a musical actor and as a VIXX member, he has successfully launched his solo career through his first extended play, Canvas. Recently, he wrapped up his three-day solo concert.
