‘All Shook Up is a 2004 American jukebox musical created around 24 of ElvisPresley's songs. The story is based on William Shakespeare's 1602 play 'Twelfth Night.' Four different idols will be playing the main lead role as Elvis Presley. The three idols are g.o.d’s Son Ho Young, ZE:A’s Dongjun, Block B;s U-Kwon and B1A4 Sandeul.
Son Ho Young commented, "I'm happy to be participating in a piece that I really like. I am anticipating Elvis to have a whole new look compared to Chad, which is the role I took on last time. I am preparing for the role with a fluttering heart."
In addition, Dongjun said, "I am honored to have gotten the role of Elvis and because the role has such a distinct personality I think I will be able to show a very different side of me. I will work hard to show that I have grown as a musical actor."
Sandeul commented that he is honored to receive the opportunity to sing Elvis Presley's classic hit songs on stage and that it is making his heart sing. He added, "I am also honored to be working with talented actors and I will try to work hard so that I don't become a burden. Please anticipate and support the musical 'All Shook Up.'"
As his first-time musical role, Block B's U-Kwon revealed his thoughts on participating in the piece and said, "Because it's my first musical, I am anxious and nervous. I will work hard to fulfill the role of Elvis, a man who is just as charming to other men."
In addition to these four charming idols who are participating in the musical, Kahi will also be playing the role of Sandra, the woman with dangerously charming qualities who steals the heart of Elvis.
The first showing of 'All Shook Up' will be on November 28 and be running through February 1, 2015 in Hongik University Art Center Theater.
