A survey targeting 77 officials in Korean musical industry to choose “influential person” in Korean musical industry.
The landscape of Korean musical world has changed. Investors’ influence has also grown noticeably. On the other hand, the influence of theater has drastically decreased. Culture Department of DongA Daily and musical magazine ‘The Musical’ jointly conducted a survey on “Who is influential Korean musical market?” A questionnaire was sent to 100 people working in musical field (musical agencies, producers, investors, actors, staffs, theaters, etc.) from the 7th to the 19th, and we received responses from 77 people.
When the survey was conducted 4 years ago, among the actors, Jo Seung Woo (#4) was the only cited in top 10. This year, including Kim Junsu (#8), there are 2 actors in the list.
Compared to 4 years ago, from #8 to #10, Kim Junsu, Kim Yang-seon (director of INT E&T sector of Interpark), Lee Ji-na (musical director) are 3 new entrants. It shows the fast changing landscape of the musicals market.
