[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu successfully concludes the musical, ‘Elizabeth’

[NEWS] JYJ’s Junsu successfully concludes the musical, ‘Elizabeth’

JYJ‘s Junsu has successfully completed his third musical, ‘Elizabeth‘, amidst standing ovations and tears.

Playing the character of ‘Death’, Junsu performed a total of 32 times for the musical, selling out seats within 10 minutes of pre-sale tickets going on sale. With his history of records, stable acting, and singing talents, he’s managed to create a new name for himself as a musical actor.

Composer Sylvester Levay of ‘Elizabeth’ commented, Kim Junsu’s ability to lead each scene was amazing, and his interpretation of his character was nothing short of charming. He’s an actor who knows what perfection on stage means.

Music director Kim Moon Jung added, “I was surprised by the level of detail he put into his movements. He’s a prodigy of musicals.

For the final performance of the musical on May 2nd, Junsu commanded the stage for the entire 160 minutes, captivating the audience with his charisma. His ability to accurately express happiness, sadness, and anger brought out a standing ovation from the 1,700 audience members.

Following the completion of his performance, Junsu expressed, “I feel that it was luck that I was offered ‘Elizabeth’. It’s a personal honor for me to have created an amazing work such as this with our nation’s top stars, and I learned a lot from the experience. I’d like to thank our audience members who filled up the seats from the first day to the last.”

[NEWS] 120410 Musical Elisabeth’s Death (Tod), a fascinating dance which invades your soul!

[NEWS] 120410 Musical Elisabeth’s Death (Tod), a fascinating dance which invades your soul!

Kim Junsu’s ‘Death (Tod)’ dominates the stage with his unique presence.

Whenever the Angels of Death with blonde hair and black wings dance their terrifyingly beautiful dance, ‘he’ will appear without fail. His sweet words of temptation with a dreamy whispered melody agitate and pierce through the listener’s heart. Like a devil, while his warm whisper ‘Only I can understand you’ is soaking through your cold and lonely heart, he steals your soul away.

The main focus in the story of musical ‘Elisabeth’ is the character Queen Elisabeth but unexpectedly, the one standing in the background of this story is ‘Death’. Having an unrestrained childhood but after a dramatic happening, Queen Elisabeth of Austria had her freedom snatched away and lived a life of a manipulated puppet. The fate of Elisabeth whose soul was tied up invisibly can be seen as a hanging marionette in a puppet show and the one who controls over the restrained soul of the Queen is indeed ‘Death’.

The composer of the musical, Sylvester Levay explained about ‘Death’ in an interview ‘A charming character who seduces the audience’. In addition, ‘He is so charming that he gives the audience a strong strength to shake off the fear of death.’ Sylvester Levay also shared a touching anecdote ‘There was a girl who was sick and afraid of death but after watching the musical, she gained back the desire to live a happy life.’ Just like what Sylvester Levay has said, the allure of ‘Death’ in this musical is fatal. How to portray such a character which is not human, beast, angel or even devil?! With the feet as fast as a hidden eagle and footsteps as sensual as a killer leopard, he comes closer and stabs his dagger to the vital point of the target.

While a beast moves its body in order to hunt for prey, ‘Death’ and his Angels dance their appealing dance in order to put the target’s forever love into Death’s hand. The fascinating dance between the party who seduces – ‘Death’ and the Angels of Death- and the party who tries to escape – Elisabeth- is paradoxically extremely beautiful and magnificent. Not only Elisabeth but even the audience fell for his dance.

Indefinable appearance is also an interesting point of the multicoloured ‘Death’. Particularly, the songs of ‘Death’ are also filled with various aspects. On the wedding day of Elisabeth and Joseph, he sings “Are you sincere with your choice? Your reverie about him is just an illusion”, then shouts out crazily “The last dance. My last dance. I will dance with you in the end. You are only mine” and shows the insane jealousy of a ‘man who fell in love’. However, while demanding Elisabeth’s son- Rudolf to rebel “What is there to hesitate. You are rescuing the world. Right now, this is fate. Only you can rescue this collapsing world”, he is an ‘evil’ who is playing with the hope of life.

The musical doesn’t build any restriction for ‘Death’. Coming from the depressing sensibility of Elisabeth, his symbolic presence also changes with Elisabeth’s state of mind; one moment, he would fill up her loneliness with love but the next moment, he desperately wants to set free every string of hope. He is a shadow who follows after Elisabeth endlessly. Also, it might be reasonable that he said to Elisabeth “Only I can understand you and give you the freedom”. ‘Death’ is no other than another self of Elisabeth that she invented in order to express the irresistible dark greed.

Being able to meet 3 different actors with 3 different colours of ‘Death’ on stage is another unconventional enjoyment in the musical ‘Elisabeth’. Having different personalities, Ryu Junghan, Kim Junsu and Song Changeui diversely interpret their own charming ‘Death’.

Specially, Kim Junsu’s ‘Death’ has received favourable comment from the audience and dominated the stage with his unique presence. Younger than other two actors, he has given an unexpected charming interpretation in response to the doubts about how he would portray a nonhuman character. Simply as a sensual and manly character, while forming a love triangle with the Emperor Joseph and Queen Elisabeth, he becomes a ‘dangerous being’ which is not woman, man, human or spirit and above that dangerous boundary, he reveals his deadly beauty.

Being neutral in between woman and man, sometimes in whispering high tone, sometimes in low tone, the seducing Kim Junsu goes back and forth in both sides and surprises the audience with his dual voice which creates a clever combination. Not belonging to any particular area, he added his unique sensibility into the bisexual allure of the transcendent ‘Death’ who attracts anything, and revived the appealing character.

[Eng/Jap] Praises for JUNSU’s TOD from experts

[REVIEW] 120409 Reviews of XiahTod on Twitter!

(@ccoccary writes music and lyrics, and translates lyrics for musicals. @nylong is a musical director)

@ccoccary: Kim Junsu, the ‘Death.’ His voice-sharp and full of harmonics-sucked up the whole theatre like a huge vacuum, carried by his movements like a leopardess. He really is an incredible person, who deserves applause and cheering. I want him to do Oscar of Rose of Versailles.(T/N: Rose of Versailles is a animations that was very very popular in Korea)

@nylong: @ccoccary Lepoadessㅎㅎ I think the Tod character in Elizabeth essentially needs to be bisexual. You shouldn’t expect eternalness to a love of a bisexual. His love equals death~

@ccoccary: @nylong He was so pretty.. I usually think it’s unattractive or weird when a man is pretty but he was fantastic!

@nylong: @ccoccary You fell in love with actor Junsu’s charm. Why don’t we dedicate(T/N: ‘dedicate’ means making a musical only for a specific actor) a musical (to him)ㅋ 3 weeks with just one character.

@ccoccary: @nylong Ku-hakhakㅋㅋㅋLet’s make a fortune firstㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋBtw I was his fan since Mozart! Such a vacuum-like actor Kimㅋㅋㅋ

@Poison_Tree I became a big fan(of Junsu) after watching Mozart! ㅋㅋHe is really suited to this role! Feels like a mix of boy+a beast from the cat family+woman? (To be honest I don’t prefer that kind of vocal but Kim Junsu makes me overpass the wall!ㅋㅋㅋ)

@ccoccary: A voice that has a lot of harmonics like Junsu sounds husky(Lee Haee, Lim Jae Bum, Lee Sora, etc). A voice is not a simple wave, but many waves overlapped, and it’s different for everyone because the distinct shape of the waves are different. Junsu’s voice is husky, and at the same time, a voice that hits like an arrow.

(@charmingmermaid is one of the ensemble of Elizabeth)
@charmingmermaid: I didn’t know well (about Junsu) because I never listened to his songs or watched his performances, and wasn’t even interested before. But I became a fan while keep listening to and watching Junsu-ssi’s performance these days. Ah..He’s really good.. I think he’s getting more suited to the role everyday. Really so beautiful~ #fb

[@ eunyshow is a reporter]

@ eunyshow : @ enkiJ87 I don’t know how to descirbe the feeling he is not like a human. The character of Death, which had not been right, seems to be on my hand after watching XiahTod. Diction and vocalization became better like another person. And as I watched from the front seat, characters become alive… T

@ eunyshow: Music composed by Sylvester Levay. More I listen, different tones and frequencies of vibration penetrate into weakness of human. Also, we can see how much he loves Tod from his music. XiahTod’s interpretation of the character is very interesting. Musical Elisabeth… shining stage from ensemble to the main cast.

 ❤

[@ lalalamiso is a reporter and @ babyilike is PR]

@ lalalamiso: wow wow I cannot get away from the seduction by Death of XiahTod in Elisabeth. Daebak (amazing)! It was wonderful night to spend good time with [I omit names of people]! Junsu’s mother that I met at the back stage was really pretty and thank you for giving birth an amazing son~~

@ lalalamiso: @ babyilike I am into XiahTod’s magical charm! I realized why people say/praise Junsu, Junsu. He work in harmony with OkEli, Min Youngki and Lucheni very well. I want to see it again!

 ❤

[@ jihyuk_park is a reporter]

@ jihyuk_park: XiahTod was strange but fatal. Especially when he came out wearing cotton flannel leggings in Act 2, I almost shouted out send XiahTod to figure skating. The stage with lots of effects was also fun to watch. I think all the actors and actresses were best today.

@ jihyuk_park: I thought Tod was not a human when he came out from behind the bed at the scene when he first meets Rudolf. I wondered how many actors there can be who can express the character ‘Death’ very well like him during the scene Mayerling-Walzer where he leads Rudolf to Death

 ❤

[@ kelee33 is a make-up artist]

@ kelee33: Elisabeth… by Xiah Junsu and Ok Juhyeon!!! It is really charming…I…didn’t know Xiah Junsu but he is really good… ^^ pic.twitter.com/cW0Whg60

[NEWS] 120331 Musical ‘Elisabeth’ is Kim Junsu’s mini concert (?)

[NEWS] 120331 Musical ‘Elisabeth’ is Kim Junsu’s mini concert (?)

JYJ member Kim Junsu’s role ‘Death’ in the musical is in the center of attention. In ‘Elisabeth’, his role is a transcendent character that follows Elisabeth around and seduces her with the desired freedom which only he can give to her.

In fact, the special characteristic of the role Tod is in the combination of songs and choreography rather than his lines in the musical. Therefore, if Kim Junsu’s acting in the role ‘Tod’ was set aside, the musical could be mistaken as a small unique musical concert.

From a soft ballad or a thrilling dance song to a sweet yet sorrowful duet, the songs flowing through his lips in each scene are painted with various colours. Even the sound of his breath seems like a poem being recited, one moment he came closer and whispered the murmurs of sweet love; the next moment he shouted and burst out like fireworks, showing the Black Devil’s allure. With a sexy and detailed choreography added up, his stage was sublimated into a supreme performance.

‘The last dance’ is the highlight of the show where the audience can feel Kim Junsu’s full energy. There is no need to include any further explanation; this scene is enough to explain why he was casted by the producers and why his ability was acknowledged by some of the greatest artists in the world like Robert Johanson or Sylvester Levay.

The superb scene which can only be seen in the combination of Kim Junsu’s ‘Tod’ and the ensemble ‘Angels of the Death’ stands out from the rest. It was a moment where not only Elisabeth but everyone in the audience fell for the allure of ‘Death’. The addictive melody and a strong performance which no one can take their eyes off for just a single moment have lifted the climax of his devotion and perfection higher.

The overwhelming ovation when Kim Junsu appears at the curtain call reminds of an actual concert. Getting up out of the seat, everyone in the audience clapped their hands while singing along or swaying their shoulders to the rhythm, and enhanced the sound intensity of the concert hall to the maximum.

After enjoying fully the climax of the show, even when the light in the hall was on, the audiences still haven’t realized that they have get up out of their seats for a good while. The excitement of the audience couldn’t fade away at all. That is the power to portray ‘Tod’ from a different dimension of the musical genius Kim Junsu.
