The Broadway musical ``Legally Blonde'' has captured the spotlight with its star-studded cast, which includes Lee Honey, Jessica and Kim Ji-woo.
The musical, based on the 2001 movie of the same name, is getting a Korean version for the first time and opens Nov. 14 at the COEX Artium in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul. The show will be presented by PMC Production, renowned for creating numerous homegrown shows such as ``Nanta,'' ``Jewel in the Palace'' and ``Brothers Were Brave.''
Jessica will alternate the lead role of Elle Woods with Lee Honey and Kim Ji-woo.
"This is the first foreign-licensed musical we are producing,'' Song Seung-hwan, head of the company, said. "This musical has excellent technique and a storyline in harmony with music better than any other musical. Although it's a licensed musical, we have to localize it to Korean tastes,'' the director said.
