Director Jang Jin recently posted a photo he took with JYJ’s Kim Junsu.
On the 10th, Jang Jin posted a photo on his personal Twitter account with a caption that said, “The guy behind me, he’s amazing. But he’s so kind, almost to a fault. I’m envious of him, and grateful to him.”
The photo shows the director looking into the camera while Kim Junsu stands behind him with a warm smile on his face. The orchestra behind the two people have also drawn the attention of many.
Netizens who saw the photo left a variety of comments like, “I’m so excited for ‘December’,” “Looks like you guys are rehearsing late into the night,” and “I can’t wait for your first-ever musical.”
Meanwhile, ‘December’, which will feature Jang Jin as its director and Kim Junsu as its leading role, will open its curtains on the 16th of December.
The reason why rehearsals have been delayed for the musical ‘December: The Song That Hasn’t Ended’ has been revealed.
On the 24th, a production representative of ‘December’ stated, “The cast, including Kim Junsu and Park Gun Hyung, have been meeting with Director Jang Jin to create solid characters in daily workshops. This is why rehearsals have been delayed.” According to the representative, “Must licensed musicals have an already-existing character that have a back story,” and “Because this will be the first time ever that ‘December’ will be shown, we don’t really have a guide.”
When news started spreading in September that Kim Junsu would be performing as the leading role in ‘December’, some people voiced the opinion that, “He doesn’t really suit Kim Kwang Seok’s music.” Regarding this, the representative confidently replied, “That’s a non-issue.”
The jukebox musical ‘December’ was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Kim Kwang Seok’s birth and will feature unreleased songs and compositions by the late singer. Director Jang Jin will combine a solid storyline with the greatest technology of the industry to create a musical that makes waves in the industry. The show will commence on the 16th of December at the Sejong Culture Centre’s main theater.
