An actor named NAM Ho-sub (33) lost his sight on his left eye and almost 90% of vision on his right eye due to uveitis. But he never gives up and tries to be on the stage at his hometown, Sokcho.
A 33-year-old Korean actor named NAM Ho-sub has been losing his sight due to the uveitis on his retina since 2005. His left eye is completely blind and cannot feel the light. Only 10% of his vision remains on his right eye, but it is disappearing slowly. In 2011, he frustrated deeply as an actor on the stage, came back to his hometown Sokcho which is small city in Gangwon Province and has few of professional theater actors and producers. He established his own theater company named ‘Soul Theater’ with his young students, staging some plays on the small place in Gangwon Province. In 2016, when he trained himself for the work named Counter Point, he realized that his vision is getting worse. Physical training increases intraocular pressure on his right eye, so that his optic nerve was damaged. Besides his company members KIM Su-jin(28) and YOON Guk-jung(27) move to Seoul to find better chances as an actor, leaving Ho Sub behind in Sokcho. In this situation his sight getting worse and his company members leaving his side, can he continue to be on the stage as an actor?
