Newsen reports that Seon Ho will portray the character of Joe in the Korean play adaptation and he will be joined by actors Shin Sung Min, Lee Hwi Jong, Oh Jung Taek, and Jung Hwan. Additionally, the news site described Touching The Void as a thrilling experience for the audience that "breaks through the limitations of space and time and unfolds on stage."
