[TRANS] 100209 Idol Stars, The Unbearable Temptation‏

The “it” item of today’s culture is idol groups. (omitted) These days, idol stars seem to have fallen head over heels for musicals. (omitted)

Many have written positive reviews for Xiah Junsu’s musical acting, which began on the 26th last month, stating that he was so good that it was hard to believe that it was his first performance.


One of the reasons why idol stars should not enter the musical market is because “If that person is set as the main character only because of the fact that his or her ticket power is great, the identity of the musical could be damaged.” Many experts have stated that the majority of idol group members who participated in musicals last year did not pay much attention to the execution of their roles.

Musical critic Won Jong Won stated, “I don’t see any interest from idol stars who are participating in musicals to use this opportunity to expand their hidden talents and skills.” He also said, “Using them as a marketing tool only to sell a lot of tickets will bring a big blow not only to the musical market, but also the idol star’s image.

The foundation of these low reviews of idol stars on the musical stage stem from the fact that they are almost ‘isolated’ because of the fact that ‘They do not rehearse as much as they should because of their busy schedule’ and ‘They are so immersed in their star quality that they treat their fellow musical actors unkindly and do not work well with others.’ (omitted)

The reviews for Mozart!’s Xiah Junsu are mostly positive.

One staff said, “It may be because he was a trainee for such a long time that he has a positive and active attitude and he can pick things up extremely fast.”

Xiah Junsu also spent some time in the hospital because of stress that accumulated from many things including rehearsals. He would repeatedly go to the hospital for a day from fatigue and then perform the next day.

The staff member also said, “Xiah Junsu works hard every day to break the prejudices against idol stars in the musical market,” and “I think his hard work paid off with great results.”

Conclusively, ‘Mozart!’ is being labeled as a successful musical that is attracting large crowds of audiences.

Xiah Junsu proved not only his ticket power in ‘Mozart!’ but his abilities and competence as a musical actor.

[TRANS] 100127 Notice: Additional Seats For Mozart Performances By Junsu

Hello everyone. Thank you for your interest towards “Mozart! The Musical”.

All the “Mozart!” performances by Kim Junsu have been sold out. However, we receive a lot of enquiries about seat availability every day, and thus we have decided to open up an additional seating area that is not utilized for other performances. The additional seating is shown below, from the grey areas upwards. This area is the same as the S seating area.

There might be some limitations for some of the seats in those areas, and 20-50% of the stage might be blocked. Even so, if you wish to watch the performance, the tickets for these seats can be bought online, one ticket per person, at the price of KRW$50,000.

[TRANS] 100127 Xiahzart! “Kiss Scene Was Cute.”

Fan Account #1:

Junsu is genius. A truly gifted singer!!
Simply amazing Junsu! Once again I learned that Junsu can do everything and anything so well!
As soon as Junsu appeared on stage, I was so overwhelmed and I started to cry right away
and I could not see anything. Because of his passion, his powerful voice,
he gave me goose bumps throughout his performance.
He sure is a man who keeps working hard and we surely fall in love with this guy.
I am sure his condition was not perfect due to his recent sickness, yet his performance was superb!
I noticed that when he is not with the other members, he looks taller in person, and very handsome and attractive. But then, to my surprise, a real kiss scene was there!
Real kiss scene……I cannot even write a comment about it, because I am still in shock.
My dolphin and angel Xiah is now a grown man…..
The other fans at the performance said that, his parents, Junho, Yuchun and Jeajoong were there.
Yuchun was with his mom and his friend. And the fans said that Jeajoong and Yuchun were watching them at the third floor.
(T/N: They could not get VIP ticket??)

Some said that JJ, JS and YC were spotted at the Karaoke place. It must have been to celebrate, Jeajoong’s Birthday together.
And after that they went to Yuchun’s house. I hope they had a great time together.
I am still in shock at this moment of time as I write this report. Junsu’s performance was amazing and that kiss scene….
many more days…..Junsuah~~~

Fan Account #2:

I just saw Junsu’s Mozart performance. His singing voice gives you goose bumps all over your body.
Actually, I saw Junho walking by me after the musical, but I could not move or stand up
because Junsu’s magnificent performance made me speechless and numb.
I could not move my body for a while after the show had ended.
We all talked about Junsu’s kiss scene.
His kiss scene did not look bad at all to me; it was not that deep scene at all to give me a shock.
I just simply thought “Junsu and she look cute together.”
More than anything, what I thought was that I want as many people as possible to see his performance.
He looks like a fish (T/N Dolphin?) released in the water!
His performance is magnificent and Junsu is truly amazing singer/performer!
You all must see Xiahzart!

[News] 100127 Xiah Junsu At Musical Mozart! The Sejong Center Filled With 3,000+Fans!

Dong-A- Ilbo (Donga Daily) News (Korean)
2010-01-27 12:02


Rare scenery, that more than 3,000 seating’s were filled up with the TVXQ fans at the Seoul world sect, “Sejong Cultural Center”

where a performance of the musical “Mozart” was opened on the 26th. The place was filled with the TVXQ fans to watch the TVXQ member Kim Junsu (stage name Xiah Junsu) who played the leading role of the musical Mozart on this day.

Even a ticket tout appeared to sell the ticket to women fans of around the age of 20 years old. This is the first musical appearance for Mr. Kim. (*T/N: Korean news editor wrote Mr. Kim here, which is culturally appropriate sir name for the musical or opera performer.)
15 times of his performances (more than 45,000 seats) that Mr. Kim appears are sold out at the end of last year after an interval of ticket advance sale only in three hours. And the first stage performance was predicted to appear to be the concert place of TVXQ.

The fans hurried up to take the first hand photos of Mr. Kim at the Sejon Cultural Center lobby on this day, and also every time Mr. Kim finished singing during his musical performance, the fans gave him great cheers.
The fans even raised their voice yelling “AH!” when the scene where Mr. Kim kissed with the co-star, 콘스탄체.
(*T/N: Her name is pronounced “Constanche” here written in Korean. Is she Korean?)

EMK musical production company appointed 35 male guards for an advance sale confirmation and the ticket confirmation for this performance.

Only the fans that brought an advance sale confirmation letter messages were able to enter the lobby area. EMK set the entrance area restrictions into consideration to secure the security of Mr. Kim and the audiences. They will take the same step for a performance on the 28th and they will make it public in the near future to clarify their security majors for the future performances.

Mr. Kim is also appearing in Mozart at Taegu performance, (from February 26 to March 7) for five times, and the server was downed at the time of the ticket sell on the 13th for the massive interest of the fans to purchase the advance sale ticket.

[TRANS] Junsu’s ‘Mozart!’ Earned Of 4 Billion Won

TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu has increased sales by approximately 4 billion Won ($3.5 million).

Xiah Junsu will take on the lead role of Mozart in the musical ‘Mozart!’. ‘Mozart!’ opened at the Seoul Sejong Cultural Center on the 20th.

Many in the domestic musical industry are saying that “‘Mozart!’ already had the money needed to cover the productions costs even before it had its first show.” The total production costs for ‘Mozart!’ is around 4 billion Won. There is no other way to explain this situation other than the ‘Xiah Junsu phenomenon’.

Calculating the Ticket Sales

There are 4 people who will play the role of Mozart and they are Xiah Junsu, Park Gun Hyung, Lim Tae Gyung and Park Eun Tae. They will be rotating every day for the performance. As soon as ticket reservations were open to the public, the number of tickets left on the nights that Xiah Junsu was scheduled to perform quickly depleted till they all reached ‘0’.

The Sejong Cultural Center’s theater has 3000 seats. 452 VIP seats, 890 R seats, 538 S seats, 482 A seats, 362 B seats, and 256 C seats. The price for the tickets range from 20,000 Won ($18) to 120,000 Won ($106) on weekdays.

In the case that a show is performed on a weekday, one performance brings in 234.8 million Won ($ 206,000). On weekends, each performance brings in 264.6 million Won ($233,000). As Xiah Junsu is scheduled to perform in 8 weekday shows and 7 weekend shows, he is bringing in sales of 3,730,600,000 Won ($3.28 million).

There are also the provincial performances to consider. There will be shows in Daegu and Suwon and currently, Xiah Junsu is confirmed to perform in Daegu. There are 1954 seats in the Daegu Gaemyung Art Center. Xiah Junsu will perform in five weekend shows in Daegu. If the amount earned each night in Seoul is multiplied by two-thirds to find the revenue in Daegu, Xiah Junsu would still have earned ‘Mozart!’ 850 million Won ($747,000) in ticket sales.

If both these amounts are added, it totals in at 4,580,600,000 Won ($4.03 million). If Xiah Junsu decides to perform in more provincial shows, this number will rise. EMK Musical Company, that is in charge of ‘Mozart!’, seems to be expecting sales of side products such OST CDs and pamphlets to rise rapidly as well.

Male-Female Ratio is 1:9

According to the information about people who reserved tickets for ‘Mozart!’ on ticket reservation site Interpark, 92.5% of buyers were female while 7.5% were male. This seems to be the strength of the Korean and Japanese female fans.

Usually, women do attend musicals more than men but never has the division been so apparent. The people who watch the musical ‘Chicago’ are 64% female and 36% male. Even for ‘Hairspray’, the division is 66% female and 33% male.

A representative of ‘Mozart!’ stated, “Thanks to Xiah Junsu, we were able to draw the public’s attention to the field of musicals more than we’ve ever been able to before.”

There are some who are wary about Xiah Junsu’s first musical show, but many are saying that we must wait and see. The musical staff commented about him and said, “It may be because he was a trainee for a long time, but he has a very active attitude when it comes to learning about the musical and he learns things very quickly.”

Xiah Junsu was hospitalized recently due to fatigue. He was there for one day and was told to rest after being diagnosed with an accumulation of fatigue.

Xiah Junsu’s first performance will be on the 26th. As the role of Mozart has been divided between four people, it is near impossible to not be compared to the other three. This is probably the most stressful part for him. He must now prove that his capability as a musical actor is as great as his ticket power.

[Trans] 100108 Modern Mozart Make-up, It Fits Park Gun Hyung And Kim Junsu Well

Interview with make-up artist of Mozart!

Make-up Artist Kim Yoo Sun has a unique love for wigs

“I want to hear ‘Your work for the musical Mozart! was good.’”

Musicals ‘Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Empress Myeongseong’, ‘Hairspray’ and ‘Chicago’. What is the similarity between these unique musicals? Extravagance. And that extravagance existed because of make-up artist Kim Yoo Sun.

“I prefer musicals because they are more extravagant and larger in scale than plays,” says Kim Yoo Sun and he has been put in charge of make-up for the musical [Mozart!] that is “a position any make-up artist would envy.”

This was his first official interview so he was shy at first but he showed his unique love and pride for wigs throughout the interview. We met with the man who has lived since November buried in the 200 or so wigs that are to be used in Mozart!

“I fell in love with the music of Mozart!, and I’m confident.”

Although he has helped with musical productions for over 20 years, the scale of Mozart! is different from others as the 200 handmade wigs required for the production compare with the 100 imported wigs that needed repair in ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and the 80 handmade wigs in ‘Hairspray’. His words are not exaggerations when he says, “Wigs account for 95% of the job,” and that “This is the biggest amount of wigs I’ve worked with yet.”

However, make-up artist Kim Yoo Sun accepted this job with more confidence than stress from responsibility. He, who grew up with music close to his side since he was young, expressed what his feelings were when he was given the job offer and said, “I heard Mozart’s music, and I fell in love with the crossover of the genres of rock and classical,” and “A job this big of a scale requiring over 200 wigs is a job any make-up artist would envy.”

Modern Mozart make-up, it fits Park Gun Hyung and Kim Junsu well

The entire cast must wear wigs, each role has at least three and as many as seven. Each wig was duplicated three times. It can be inferred that the wig production of Mozart! is at least two to three times bigger than past jobs. It takes around a week to make each wig, and there are around 20 designers employed for wigs. They began making wigs after the casting of the cast was finished in November.

Since the head block (shape of the head) is different for each person, each member of the cast requires his or her own wig. This applies especially for the four Mozarts (Lim Tae Gyung, Park Eun Tae, Park Gun Hyung and Kim Junsu).

Like his explanation that “Mozart is the center of the spotlight visually in this musical,” Mozart enters the scene wearing jeans and sporting ‘drag hair’.

It would have been difficult to make a modern Mozart, but to him, who “Traveled to 30 countries for overseas shows and saw various cultures,” the blending of modern and past was not very hard. He was able to add a modern twist for all of the cast instead of just focusing on Mozart.
