Jo's much-anticipated return to the stage was marked with controversy following reports that his salary would be the highest for any musical theater actor in Korean history. While producers fear that demands for similarly high fees could follow (which could eventually put them out of business), others say that the fee is justified, based on the hope that Jo will help spark a renaissance in a once vibrant but now stagnant musical theater industry.And true enough, when tickets went on sale, the demand was so high that the online reservation server broke down after 15 minutes, with all of the performances in which Jo is scheduled to appear already sold out.
Jo made his small screen debut in MBC 'sHorse Doctor, a 2012 historical series based on a true story about a Joseon -era low-class veterinarian specializing in the treatment of horses who rises to become the royal physician.
