“Mata Hari” is based on the dramatic life of charming Mata Hari, who was shot to death on suspicion of being a double agent during the World War I. Mata Hari falls in love with warm-hearted Armand (Leo), who embraces her inner side which is hidden beneath her fancy life of Moulin Rouge.

Um Ki-joon and Song Chang-eui were also cast as Armond.

VIXX’s main vocalist Leo has received rave reviews after partaking in his first musical “Full House,” with stable vocal and acting.

“After watching musicals such as ‘Elizabeth’ and ‘Rebecca,’ I always wanted to join in production of EMK. It’s an honor to be on the stage with senior veteran actors,” said Leo.

The musical will be staged at Blue Square in Seoul from March 25 to June. 12.
