I saw the musical; Jekyll & Hyde for the first time by the South Korean version, and I become to like this musical.
I enjoyed same things and differences between the South Korean version I saw and this Japanese version on the day.

* South Korean version I saw:

I had seen some motion pictures of this Japanese version in advance. At that time, I had thought the Korean version would be superior to the Japanese version in various aspects, but after I saw this stage, I found the Japanese version is also splendid.
Main casts were splendid of course, and singing, performance, and dancing of casts for ensemble were also splendid!!

CD: South Korean Muisical: HEDWIG New Make-up (Mr. Cho Seung-Woo Version)

I am very happy to have this CD, because this seems to be live recording, so I can imagine actual stages well!
There are two CDs. In the second CD, several pieces from the first CD were recorded in different arrangements and rhythms, so we can happily taste two types of one song.

I have the CD of 2013 version, too.
(Here is a motion picture at recording.)
I think singing of Mr. Cho Seung-Woo has become better and been more polished than the 2013 version CD.
Further, this version is live recording! His live singing seems to be so good!!
Also, Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's rock singing is very rhythmical and beautiful, not just noisy, so we can listen them very comfortably.

Same as the 2013 version CD, I like "Wig in a Box" best in this CD. It is very beautiful piece!
I think I will become fond of all HEDWIG musical songs through these CDs.

Pictures of the jacket inform me of the scenes of stages.
Here is a motion picture which shows his new make-up and styles.
