The concert will be held in London at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on December 12. The music will celebrate the work of the writing duo composer Richard Rodgers and lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II.
There will be two performances total featuring songs from musicals like Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music.
Park is known for her work on Broadway and in other musical theater venues. She starred in the Broadway musical adaptation of Mean Girls from 2018 and 2019. She was also in the ensemble cast for several popular musicals like The Sound of Music and Mamma Mia! Later, she became known for her role as Kimber on the hit Netflix original series Emily in Paris.
Kim is better known for his roles in television series like “Lost” and “Hawaii Five-0.” However, he does have musical theater ties.

He reprised the role on Broadway from May 3 to June 26, 2016, at the Lincoln Center Theatre in New York, NBC News reports.
Kim posted about the event on social media, saying he was so excited to begin sharing projects with his fans now that the SAG-AFTRA strike is over.
