[Trans] Thoughts About Goong from a Lady Host in Japan

Much thanks to LLS/slimz1808 for sending this translation in my email. Kyu Jong has always been Mr. Nice Guy for me and this lady host in Japan just proves it again.

I read that Goong in Kyoto has been extended for a week. Can anyone please confirm this? Would this mean that Kyu Jong will be staying a bit longer than expected? Kyu Jong's last performance is supposed to be this coming Sunday afternoon , 26th of June (I am sure many would be watching this). Anyway, if it is true, I will be one of the happiest because it means that our Kyu Jong is also made for musical play.


[Trans] After watching Goong [From the blog of Lady Host in Japan show]

I went to watch musical (Goong) which started on the 11th of this month on Tuesday.
I interviewed Kyujong san (who is starring as Shin Prince) before the show. He relates that he was extremely nervous on the first day and was even trembling throughout.
However he sounds pretty relax today even though my interview is just prior to the show. Perhaps because today is already the third day of performance.
Can I say Kyujong san really is a nice guy!
Even though it was a pretty rushed/impromptu interview, he was all ready, waiting for the interview to begin when I arrived.
"Wants to take a photo, can? Will it be alright?"
"Yup, no worries, go ahead."
Ah, wish to repeat again, really a nice guy.

Kyujong san was very hardworking during the show, great voice projection in his singing, living up to the name of Prince Shin, making me very touched.
Frankly, he speaks in a very gentle, warm voice, greatly different from during singing~!
After the performance, inadvertently had a small chat with the audience next to me, "great effort!"
As compared to (Goong) in Korea last year, there is better flow in the current storyline, emotions amongst the characters are more intense too.
I had a short chat with Run san too. Run related in a rather anxious tone that after seeing Kyujong san's stage performance, felt that he is really great, hence will have to work hard for his (Run's) own shows too...
Kyujong san is already very good but I heard from sources that Run san is even better in terms of singing, hence am also interested in Run's show.
And Run san is also very handsome.
Good match to Prince's image.
This interview session will be screened on 17th on 「MADE IN BS JAPAN」(BS JAPAN) at 745pm. Please catch it.

Hi Corrine.

From what I know he's not supposed to be in all shows and will be back earlier than the rest of the casts. Kyu Jong is supposed to performed only until the 26th of July (PM.


Corrine said...

omg really? what do you mean "not supposed to be in all shows?" how can it carry on without him unless the character dies/goes away etc.

it's double cast. two actors for shin and two actors for yul.

liezle said...

@12:12 yes you are correct.

@Corrine hope we get some details of the extension soon. Probably B2M is still arranging for his schedule. ^^ If it's Kyu Jong's last stage on the 26th, I can't wait to see/know how the Kyu Jong will feel about it.
