Korean homegrown musical "My Scary Girl" will be staged at the New York Musical Theater Festival (NYMF).

The musical, which is currently being performed at The Stage in Seoul, has been invited as an official work for the NYMF 2009 Next Link Project.

"My Scary Girl" has been praised as exemplary and developed with revisions through trial runs at workshops and the festival before its premiere.

The musical was originally shown at the 2008 Musical Theater Lab for new musicals in development at the Barrington Stage Company (BSC). It was the first Korean work selected by the BSC, a renowned American performing arts support group.

In addition, the musical was a winner and received support from the second Daegu International Musical Festival last year.

The original cast members will perform at the festival, and the show will be staged in Korean with English subtitles for six days.

The stage adaptation of the movie of the same name, portrays an awkward but romantic relationship that develops between Hwang Dae-woo, a naive English instructor who has never really dated a girl, and Lee Mi-na, a sweet girl who claims to be an art major but turns out to be a serial killer.

Prominent composer Will Aronson provided the music, with lyrics by author Kang Kyoung-ae.

The festival presents more than 30 new musicals at venues in New York City's midtown theater district.

More than half of the productions are chosen by leading theater artists and producers through an open-submission, double-blind evaluation process. The remaining shows were invited to participate by the festival's artistic staff.

The NYMF takes place from Sept. 28 to Oct. 18.
