[TRANS] 131129 On His Appearance In ‘December’, Kim Junsu Says, “I Have High Expectations For Myself”


Singer and musical actor Kim Junsu has expressed his sentiments on appearing in the musical ‘December’.

Kim Junsu attended the open rehearsal session for ‘December: The Song That Hasn’t Ended’, which was held at the Sejong Culture Center, and said, “My character Ji Wook is quite different from the roles I’ve taken on in past musicals.”

The singer has appeared in ‘Mozart!’, ‘Tears of Heaven’ and ‘Elisabeth’ in the past and has been recognized by critics and musical-lovers alike as a talented musical actor. While his past characters have been quite dark and required heavy makeup, he will be playing the role of an average joe in ‘December’.

He will be playing the role of romancer Ji Wook, a college student who has returned to his studies after fulfilling his military duties. Ji Wook is an average guy with a bright personality who enjoys poetry, music and romance. Kim Junsu plans to put his own spin on the emotional character who meets the love of his life.

Kim Junsu said, “The characters I’ve taken on till now were quite abstract. I always had to act in environments, like the Austrian royal palace, that I had never experienced before, so it actually feels quite awkward having to express a character and story that is more realistic.” He continued to add, “I think I’ll be able to showcase an energetic performance because my character feels so real. I have high expectations for myself as I take on this new challenge.”

Meanwhile, ‘December’ starts in a boarding house in 1992 and depicts the 20-year-long love story between Ji Wook, Lee Yeon and Hoon. The musical has been garnering much attention since it was announced as it will incorporate music from the late Kim Kwang Seok. The musical will be performed at the Sejong Culture Centre from the 16th of December till the 29th of January, 2014.
