Yesung: “Historical musicals are my destiny” – Two South Korean historical musicals, this time followed by a Western one
Super Junior member Yesung, who has been involved in a spiral of musicals said that: “This is the third time that I’m being involved in musicals. The previous two musicals were South Korean historical musicals, and this time, I’ll be taking on the challenge of doing a Western historical musical.”
Yesung attended the press conference for the musical “Spamalot” on the 31st (of August), which was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Seoul Plaza Hotel that is located at Taepyeongno, Jung-gu, Seoul.
“Spamalot” describes about the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, who are on the quest to search for the Holy Grail. Yesung will be taking on the role of “Sir Galahad” in the musical, and not only does he have to be in charge of the section with the highest notes in the musical, there are also many comical scenes that he has to do. Aside from that, exciting scenes from the “Phantom of the Opera” would appear in the musical as well.
During the press conference, Yesung revealed to the reporters that “previously, the musicals Nam Han San Sung and Hong Gil Dong that I’ve participated in have a gloomy atmosphere” and that “although the musical this time isn’t as gloomy as those preceding it, but it is a Western historical musical. I have the thoughts that ‘historical musicals are my destiny’,” he laughed.
He also said that “In this period of time, I couldn’t take part in many of the rehearsals because I have to perform in the Super Junior and SMTown concerts.” However, he mentioned that “I will show everyone the image of a true musical actor.”
Aside from that, those joining Yesung in the musical include Park Youngkyu, who is making a comeback on stage after a lapse of five years, Jung Sunghwa, the representative of Korean musical world, and more. Performances are expected to begin from 1st October at the Seoul Han Jun Arts Centre.
