Kim will join the cast of The King and I for a limited eight-week engagement, beginning May 3.

While the role marks his first time performing on Broadway, this won't be DDK's first time playing the King of Siam. He previously appeared in a concert production of The King and I at London's royal Albert Hall in 2009.

Kim will be starring opposite Kelli O'Hara, who won a Tony Award last year for the role of schoolteacher Anna Leonowens. The show also won a Tony for Best Musical Revival and Best Featured Actress Ruthie Ann Miles.

Kim revealed his summer plans to fans via Instagram:

Prior to Kim's run, Ken Watanabe, who originally played the role in the revival and received a Tony nomination for it, will also reprise his role for a seven-week run beginning March 1, taking over for Hoon Lee. Jose Llana will fill the role from April 19 through May 1.
