VIXX's Ken wins musical theatre award

On July 9, VIXX member Ken won the rookie of the year award at the 12th annual Daegu International Musical Festival (DIMF).

Since May, the singer has performed in “Hamlet” in a manner that is being called “perfect character acting.” As a result, at the end of every show, Ken and the cast got a standing ovation, proving the quality of the production.

In his winning speech, the singer remained humble and grateful for the opportunity to appear in the musical. “I am so happy to be on stage as a musical actor” and “honored and delighted to win the rookie award,” he said. Further, he went on to thank the actors, directors, staff members, and the audience who helped him through the performance.

Meanwhile, since making his musical debut in 2015 with “Chess,” Ken has starred in various productions including “Cinderella,” “Titanic,” and more. However, considering that he is recognized as one of the most talented idol singers in the music industry, his crossover to theater almost seems inevitable.

I love watching fancams of his performances in Cinderella and Hamlet. Everything is so pretty and sparkly, like a dream. <3 His voice is really special.

Great work, Ken!!!

Congratulations Ken! I'm so happy for him because he definitely works just as hard in his musicals as he does in vixx or whatever solo promos he has and I'm glad it's been recognized officially.

Yeah you can definitely tell the passion is there. I think in one interview he said that's what he sees himself doing in the future. (?)

I love seeing Idols find a niche and passion in another capacity like musical theater. There's so many ways a singer can get fulfillment that isn't necessarily being at the very top of the pop industry. Good for him and lovely Luna who won too

Yeah, her career seems to have branched out a bit. I really liked her beauty videos last year.

I've been watching Hitmaker, man it's so frustrating how you can't watch anything with him in it without jokes at his skin color :(((((((((((( I screamed when he hit Hyuk for saying something about him lol. I am waiting for the day hakyeon pops the fuck off on the others, do it before you enlist plzzzz
