JYJ Kim Junsu appeared on the stage of musical ‘Mozart’.

Receiving new actor awards and popularity awards from last year’s prestigious award shows, “The Musical Awards” and “Korean Musical Award”, Kim Junsu who successfully debuted as a musical actor returned once again as music genius Mozart.

Nicknamed ‘Xiahzart’ and grabbing a place as musical actor, Kim Junsu received a nomination for the Best Actor award with seasoned actors such as Jung Sung Hwa and Jo Seung Woo etc, in the “5th The Musical Award” held on the 7th of June.

During the open rehearsal for Mozart, Kim Junsu had expressed, “To me, ‘Mozart’ is not just a simple musical work, it gave me a feel that I have once again descended to this world.”

Reappearing on Mozart’s stage, Kim Junsu said, “Have been thinking about wanting to reappear, presenting the looks of the best stage. I have been having many thoughts for the past 1 year about Mozart, about music and would want to present a different production of Mozart from last year’s.”

Additionally, Im Taekyung, Park Euntae, Kim Junsu, Chun Dong Shik will be performing in musical “Mozart” till the 3rd of July at Sungnam Arts Centre with Kim Junsu having 13 performances.

Waaa! Junchan! Why are you so busy? I hope you won’t push yourself too much.
Hearing news of you being sick will make so many of us worry. 😦

Q. How do you find Xiah Junsu, having performed in the musical “Mozart!” together with him?

– He is really excellent. There are four main lead actors for “Mozart”, and amongst the four of them, he was the first to have memorized the lines, the actions and the lyrics. He was very hardworking during the rehearsals, and he always had this determination to want to give his best. A few days ago I heard he won the best newcomer award in “The Musical Awards”, and I was worried that people who have not seen him performed would say that “it was an award won based on popularity”. In the musical I play the role that antagonizes Mozart, but because (Junsu) was so outstanding in his acting, I even felt apologetic about having to oppose him. I told him before, that I hope he will continue doing this, and he himself also expressed that he wishes to carry on performing in musicals.

You appeared in Mozart! with Xiah Junsu. How was he?
He did really well. Out of the four people who played the lead role in, he was the first to memorize all of his lines, blocking and lyrics. He would work hard during rehearsals and he had a strong foundation of determination to work off of. A couple of days ago, I heard that he won the Best Male Newcomer Award for ‘The Musical Awards’, and I worried that people who hadn’t seen his shows properly would devalue his achievement and call it ‘an award that caters to popularity’. My role (Mrs. Weber) was a villain who torments Mozart, but his acting was so good that I felt bad for tormenting him. I told him that I wanted him to keep acting. He himself said that he wants to keep doing musicals.

Are all idol stars like that?
Not at all. Aside from Xiah Junsu, I heard that Yesung from NamHanSanSung worked very hard as well. I also heard that Daesung and Seungri did well in Cats and Rain Shower respectively. I heard that although Jessica was lacking in preparation time, she had a desire to perform in the musical. These are the most unfortunate cases; they have plenty of drive, but lack the necessary circumstances to succeed.

It seems that not many idol stars appear in licensed musicals. Cats, Mozart, and Legally Blonde seem to be it? Why is that?
With big productions, foreign staff from overseas come for the audition process. People are never cast just because they are idol stars in these situations. Therefore, there is a chance that idol stars may not get the part. So entertainment agencies usually don’t let the idol stars audition in the first place because of this.

[TRANS] 100609 The Story Of “Mozart!” And The Award Winners

June 9, 2010

Best Female Supporting Actress – Shen Young Soo (Baroness)
Best Male Newcomer – Kim Junsu (Mozart)
Popularity Award – Kim Junsu (Mozart), Jung Seon Ah (Constance)

2010.06.07 Met Mozart again at the Sejong Cultural Center Theater!

The musical that reignited the entire musical world in the first half of 2010, “Mozart!”, having had its last goodbye performance in Ansan a short while back, came back together for a special performance in the “4th The Musical Awards”. After having not seen each other for a while, the actors and actresses finally met once again, and they were filled with happiness. In order to give encouragement to the respective nominees, a lot of the audience came for the award ceremony.

Seo Pan Hee, the other actor of the musical, along with all the crew who have provided much help, the crew members of Yehn Hong Kwan planning agency, and Kim Junsu’s parents all gathered at the Sejong Culture Center Theater today for the event.

The award ceremony finally commenced! All the works that received a lot of love from the audience were featured one by one on the stage along with the award presentation for the actors, working crews and best works. Kim Junsu, who became Mozart again began to feel nervous~

“Mozart!” won awards for Best Female Supporting Actress, Best Male Newcomer, Male and Female Popularity Awards. Even though the results were slightly disappointing, each time the word “Mo” of “Mozart!” appeared, however, the entire audience would give its loudest cheers and applause, and that moved us deeper than getting an award.

It was time for a gathering after the end of the award presentation.

In order to celebrate Kim Junsu’s, Shen Young Soo’s and Jung Seon Ah’s win, and also to thank all the actors for the perfect performance they have put up for the audience, we gathered for a small celebration after the award ceremony, which only ended at dawn.

From the preparation stages to the actual performances to the final closing curtain, the representatives of EMK have been working tirelessly…composer Ryoo Hee Seong, who was strict at times, would also take good care of the actors…Lee Ryeon Young, our dance instructor and Han Jung Ahn, our costume designer, who both left a deep impression on everyone for the dance moves and elegant costumes…and best newcomer Kim Junsu, who first went to Kang Nam for an event by the award sponsor before coming down to the venue of gathering…

Park Gun Hyung, our MC host for tonight…the other hero of our performance Park Eun Tae… Seo Pan Hee, who has been laughing with “Mozart!” from the start to the end of the award ceremony…Shen Young Soo, who cried while receiving her award, and for wanting South Korea to remember her as the actress Shen Young Soo rather than “Young Soo”…most popular actress Jung Seon Ah…Woo Man Suk, who joined other events before joining us at the “Mozart!” gathering…Yun Jung Eh, who constantly brought laughter to us by displaying his sense of humour during the performances…also, to all the managers and crews who constantly were at their back, left and right in order to help them shine brighter…everyone sat around and chatted to their hearts’ content, and nobody left even thought it went way past midnight.

“Every time our actors received an award, they would mention ‘EMK’, we are really grateful. We will definitely find a way to repay all the actors, actresses and crew.” – Yehn Hong Kwan Representative

“I was afraid I would forget all the difficult lines during the performance, so even up till now I would memorize them from time to time. Currently, I have also been listening to the musical’s CD often.” – Kim Junsu

“When Junsu first came to join us for practice after his return from Australia, he only used two days to memorize all the actions and lines, and it was indeed very shocking. That moment completely changed my preconception of him.” – Shen Young Soo

“I didn’t really like EMK initially, but now I like it a lot.” – Jung Seon Ah

We were once filled with worries when faced with the initial challenges of bringing in the musical “Mozart!” locally for the Korean audience, but thanks to everyone’s passion and support, we have achieved a massive success. Once again, we would like to extend our thanks to everyone, do keep a lookout for a re-make of “Mozart!”

DBSK’s member, Xiah Junsu (actual name: Kim Junsu) has been nominated in the “Best Newcomer” category in the 4th “The Musical Awards”.

Xiah Junsu made his debut on the musical scene through the musical “Mozart!”. Even though his decision to debut as a musical actor was questioned in the initial stages, he eventually won over the critics as the musical progressed, and even broke the sales record for the ticket sales!

Also, in this nomination for “Best Newcomer”, other than Ok Ju-hyeon, who has already become a musical actress, there are no other idol artistes; thus, the possibility of Xiah Junsu winning this category is higher.

The 4th “The Musical Awards” will be held on the 7th June, 7PM at the Sejong Cultural Centre Theater. Nominations were chosen from amongst musicals held in Seoul and the Province of Gyeonggi from 1 April 2009 to 30 April 2010. All of these musicals are either medium or large-scale, and have seated at least a 400-strong audience.

I went to Korea to watch Park Euntea’s last day of Seoul performance on February 19.
It is difficult for even a person concerned like us to secure a seat of
this Korean musical “MOZART!” performance.
Even the third floor seat is impossible to get, it is packed day after day.

I managed to receive a first floor seats for me and my friend who accompanied me and
we were able to watch performance of Park Euntae.

I decided to enjoy the performance purely this time, so without working to check clothes,
I enjoyed the song, dance and the music fully.

To be frank, I who watched it only on the first day was surprised very much!
All of the casts performed even better than before!

Each scene was refined even more to the perfection.
The dance of the ensemble went great too,
and even the sound of the orchestra was better this time.
I was really moved to feel that they must have continued to work harder one after another.

↓Euntea after he ended a last performance at Seoul on the 19th
with the audience’s full shouts of joy. This was taken just after that.
He really shined.

Popular idol group TVXQ’s member Xiah Junsu’s pictures that he took with the cast of musical ‘Mozart!’ have been revealed.

Xiah Junsu of group TVXQ, who boasts great popularity in Japan and sets new records and rewrites history every time they release an album, is not only a singer anymore; he has been praised for his efforts and acting skills in his debut musical. The pictures he took with the cast and staff of ‘Mozart!’ were put up on a cast member’s mini homepage and are drawing attention.

Min Young Gi, a cast member of ‘Mozart!’, did not hold back any praise and said, “I was worried at first because Kim Junsu is the youngest and this is his first time acting. But the passion and talent inside of him is astounding. If I had to pick the best genius Mozart out of the four people who took the lead role, I can easily choose Junsu. He is Xiahzart, who sings with his entire body.”
