Kim Junsu won the Best Musical Actor award last year for his role in ‘Elisabeth’. He was also recognized as ‘the musical actor with both skill and ticket power’ in the musical industry. This attention and anticipation must have put a lot of pressure on him.
Kim Junsu said, “I did feel a lot of pressure. I know I say this a lot and it might sound really overused, but I do really feel very pressured.”
He continued to add, “I’m sure any people know this already, but my longing to stand on stage is on the verge of desperation. I’m not able to appear on broadcasted programs, and I’m only able to show my energy through concerts or in musicals. As desperate as I am, I’m going to put all my power and energy into each and every scene. I want to quench my thirst through this stage.”
