JYJ′s Kim Junsu is Burdened by Single-Casting and Location of ′Death Note′ Musical
JYJ′s Kim Junsu shared about the burden of being single cast in the music Death Note.
On June 1, Kim Junsu attended the press conference for musical Death Note at the Floating Island in Banpo, where he shared that he felt some burden about his single-casting.
"I had a lot of worries this time around. However, as I made the decision on the single-casting, I thought it was the best time to be with great actors, whom I can lean on."
"I will be having the most shows in my musical career. If 15 shows have been the most, this time, the musical will open up to 22 shows," said Junsu. "Also because the location is in Seongnam, I am a bit nervous as it′s a bit off the metropolitan area. But I′m glad and reassured to be doing it with great actors."
Kim Junsu has been cast as the character L, a mysterious detective that attempts to solve unsolved cases from around the world. Through the ′death note,′ L goes against a battle with Light (Hong Kwang Ho), who wants to become the god of the new world.
The musical Death Note is based on the original manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The musical is a project created by Japan′s art director, Kuriyama Tamiyaga, music composer Frank Wildhorn, and music director Kim Moon Jung.
The Korean version of Death Note will run between June 11 and August 11 at the Seongnam Arts Center Opera House.
