◆ Kind of like a “TVXQ” style = “Musical is the genre that a performance is maximized with a song, and a song is maximized by a performance.” “Because I did not know acting in the musical field, I decided to think, ‘How about Mozart? How would he react?’”

Xiah Junsu is usually an optimist, but he experienced a feeling of strain like he was being choked at the time of his first performance. “It felt like I went back to the time of our debut.” “There is no Kim Junsu anymore, and there is only Mozart. I went on the stage thinking that music is all I have, and both the pain and the happiness of Mozart for the sake of the music resembled my own feeling.”

It was the first big single performance alone for him. Of course it was burdensome for him. He always performs as one of the five members (1/5) of TVXQ.

“Other TVXQ members cover me when I make mistake, but I thought that in a musical it would be a fight for only me alone.” “However, it turns out that when I say my lines slow, a partner copes with it quickly, and other actors take care of it if I am languid, and we all exchange our performances like that. Kind of like other musical actors are the members of TVXQ (LOL).”

◆ An idol, fan culture = There were many objections to his challenge at this time. It was anticipated by him. “I am the lead character who is from an idol group, it could be said that I am a person who is displeased by the various people that lives in a musical world all the time.” “But there is really much that I am thankful for and I think that I am very fortunate. All of them are warm and they contact with me casually. There were many bashful scenes such as a kiss scene or an intense performance, but I was able to perform it well, thanks to everyone’s grace. I am thankful.”

According to the word from Lee Songjung a musical director, “Xiah Junsu is a person who is the first one to greet and talk to his co-actors and the seniors, and he always creates interesting and fun atmosphere.” Just like the director mentioned, Xiah Junsu’s special affinity (bright and cheerful personality) had helped him. “There are many fans that have contacted with a musical for the first time, and there are considerably quite a number of persons who are drowning in to its charm.” “I am happy if I am able to contribute to enlarging the musical market.”

This performance took the evaluation to be “The performance that the fans had completed.” The intensive degree of the fans made completeness to the performance itself. The prediction that girl fans would change an atmosphere of the musical came off. “Our fans sort out and know where they are at.” “Some of them even studied the point to view the musical in rightful way by learning it at a fan page.”

In fact, he speaks that, so far there was not even a single musical work he watched properly at a theater. The reason is because he was chased around by a long trainee period and a busy schedule. However, he already carried an atmosphere that he had become “The musical missionary.” “I fall into the charm of the musical more and more while standing on the stage.” “Will not 10,000,000 spectator times come for the musical, kind of like a movie sometime in upcoming years? I want to perform the musical again someday in the future.”
