Frank's Rudolf will open in South Korea in November 2012. The production will be presented by EMK Musical Company who also staged The Count of Monte Cristo

Not much info so far, but a tiny poster can be seen here

And according to this footage from Dress Rehearsal, it seems that in Korea "The Writing's on the Wall" has been replaced by "Fear and Desire". It's still a duett between Taaffe and Larish which is good. But the scene is staged as in the Vienna version was Mary's confrontation with Taaffe.
I loved the song in Hungary but not as a replacement of the 1st one. So...either they've eliminated Mary's meeting with the Prime-Minister and now is Larish who goes, or they've decided to re-stage the duel between Taaffe and Mary.

Actually it's not really a highlights album.

Two actors recorded the love songs (and The Steps of Tomorrow, though not clear if it will have chorus). By the way, those 10 tracks were recorded twice, in Korean AND in Japanese, by the same people. YesAsia has both CDs cheaper than SoM ;)

I found a video of Oak Joo-hyun performing "Only Love" in concert (posted on NanKnighton.com).

I couldn't find the Japanese version of this recording on YesAsia, though, only the Korean one. Does anyone know more about that?

The Japanese version is here. It's basically the same recording but sung in Japanese I think. I've only bought the Korean one so far, I'm waiting for Monte Cristo to have them both shipped at the same time.
