I don't remember this one, quite a different interpretation of Electricity. Anyone know what was the performance.

It was the Korean Musical Awards. Just as the US and the UK have awards shows, so does S. Korea. Here is another video from the show to give you more of an idea of what that show was like:

Above all, what excites musical aficionados the most this year is the upcoming Korean production of “Billy Elliot” which is coming onto the stage for the first time in seven years. According to Seensee Company, auditions are currently being held to find Billy, a young boy who trades boxing gloves for ballet shoes. The production company has opened up auditions for all boys across the country whose height does not exceed 150 centimeters and those whose voices have yet to change. The show will be staged at the D-Cube Art Center in Sindorim, western Seoul from November to April next year.

This is an excellent interview with Simon Pollard, about preparing the Billys and the opening night.
