Singer and actor Kim Seong-gyu leaves the musical ‘Kinky Boots’ early due to a jaw injury.

On the 13th, CJ ENM, the producer of ‘Kinky Boots’, announced, “Actress Kim Seong-gyu, who plays Charlie, will be leaving early due to health reasons.”

He explained, “Kim Seong-gyu is inevitably leaving the show because it is deemed difficult to return within the schedule according to the expert’s opinion that he needs adequate treatment and a recovery period after surgery due to a mandible fracture. .”

Kim Seong-gyu’s vacancy will be filled by musical actor Kim Ho-young. CJ ENM said, “Actor Ho-Young Kim, who was with us in the 2016 and 2018 seasons, will join as Charlie. As a result, the performances and casting schedules previously opened from August 23 to September 12 are changed.”

He added, “I sincerely wish for Kim Seong-gyu’s recovery, and I would like to thank Kim Ho-young for making the difficult decision to join in the middle.”

Earlier, on the 7th, Kim Seong-gyu suffered an injury to his jaw during his daily life and was diagnosed with a mandible fracture through a detailed examination. On the 8th, his agency, Double HTN, said, “The surgery is scheduled for this week and treatment is required for a certain period of time after surgery.”
