Busy with a movie and JYJ activities, Park Yoochun could not take on a drama with an unclear future.

[TRANS] 131220 ‘December’ Kim Junsu Says, “I’ve Never Received A Response Like This In 10 Years”


Singer and musical actor Kim Junsu has expressed his feelings about appearing in ‘December’.

During the ‘December’ press call that was held at the Sejong Culture Centre on the 20th, Kim Junsu stated, “I felt a bit of pressure because this musical has never been performed before. I was nervous because I was the first to play that role.” Kim Junsu participated in the opening performance of the musical on the 16th.

Kim Junsu emphasized the focal point of his acting as he stated, “I tried to express the emotions of the 80s and 90s. I’ve never performed in a musical that has a comical element before, so it’s so strange and fun to hear the audience laughing as we perform,” and “This is the first time that I’ve heard people in their 40s and 50s laughing out loud in the audience. It’s something I haven’t experienced before, but I like it.”

This kind of response from KIm JUnsu is expected. He’s probably used to the screams and shouts of young women in their teens and twenties. But as ‘December’ uses the music of the lake Kim Kwang Seok, Kim Junsu and the musical has been receiving a positive response from the older generation.

Kim Junsu plays the role of Ji Wook, who lives with the pain of his first love. His reinterpretation of Kim Kwang Seok’s classics, like ‘If Only Painful Love Wasn’t Love At All’, ‘Because of Love’ and ‘December’, has been met with thunderous applause from the audience.

Meanwhile, the musical follows the 20-year-long love story between Ji Wook and Lee Yeon. It has been met with a positive response from the planning processes because of its utilization of the late Kim Kwang Seok’s music. It will be performed from the 16th of December till the 29th of January at the Sejong Culture Centre.

The press call was held after the day’s performance, and Kim Junsu stated, “My aunts came to watch the musical together, and they came to my waiting room after the performance in tears,” and “There were a few things I had missed out on because I hadn’t had those experiences in that time period, and they explained those to me.”

He continued to say, “They said that they teared up, just from hearing that Kim Young Sam had been chosen to be Korea’s next president. They told me that watching the musical brought up old memories for them,” and “It made me realize that there were a lot of emotions present in the musical that I wasn’t responsible for. There are moments that will touch everyone, regardless of age or gender.”
