The press call for musical ‘December: Unfinished Song’ was held recently at Seoul’s Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, and saw the presence of director Jang Jin along with cast members like JYJ’s Kim Junsu, Oh So Yeon, and Kim Ye Won.
A press conference was held after the preview screening where Junsu said, “I was really nervous and wanted to do my best to bring out the emotions of my role in the 80s and 90s. Up till now, I have never been in a humorous style of musical, so it was really interesting to hear laughter from among the audience members during the musical.”
He added, “If you want me to say what’s different now compared to my past musicals, I think it’s the unruffled laughter of uncles in their 40s and 50s. It’s my first time hearing this sort of laughter, and I feel really moved when I see this response. I have always been hearing voices from female audience members, so it is a special feeling for me to hear the voices of male audience members this time.”
‘December’ is a musical that was produced to mark the 50th anniversary of the late Kim Kwang Suk. Park Geun Hyung and Kim Junsu will play the lead role of Ji Wook, while Ji Wook’s first love will be rotated between Oh So Yeon and Kim Ye Won. Ji Wook’s friend, Hoon, will be rotated between Park Ho San, Lee Chang Yong, and Lee Jong Joo; The father will be rotated between Song Yong Chang and Jo Won Hee; the mother will be played by Hong Yun Hee, the role of Sung Tae will be played by Im Ki Hong and Kim Dae Jong, while the role of Yuri who has a crush on Ji Wook will be rotated between Kim Seul Gi and Jo Kyung Joo.
