[TRANS] ToH’s Actor Jeon Dong Seok Mentioned About Junsu

[many parts omitted]

There are alot of talks about Xiah Junsu taking part in musicial ‘Tears of Heaven’, is there any pressure for you to act in the same character as him?

“There wasn’t any pressure. Because the viewers have different view points of me and Junsu Hyung-Nim is what I think.

What kind of person is Xiah Junsu like since you have seen him up-closed?

“He’s really like a easy-to-get-along elder brother from the same neighbour. Although he’s 2 years older than me, he takes good care of me.”

You have a character that likes to win, so do you find that Xiah Junsu is your rival in terms of ticketing power and awareness?

“Nothing of that sort. In comparision to me, Junsu Hyung-Nim has started out his activities from when he was young and he has a lot of experience. I don’t have much experience as compared to him and I don’t have much on stage experience. I still have a long way to go in future.”

Everyone is always debating about celebrities’ attitudes during filming or interviews. Some celebrities show attitudes of lacking sincerity because of their busy schedule and stress, however, there are other celebrities that are professional, responsible, and modest. What are the differences in celebrities attitude in work?

◆ “Sensitive, late, missing appointments, lack sincerity…” celebrities with “BAD” attitudes

◆ “hard working, modest, polite…” celebrities with “GOOD” attitudes

JYJ’s Park Yoochun (25) with his humble and honest attitude also became a hot topic during filming for last year’s KBS drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Even though he is one of the most popular idols, but during filming he has an appropriate mindset of a newcomer, receiving favorable praises from workers. Out of all the lead actors, Park Yoochun was the only one that declined having a exclusive chair prepared for him at the filming site. When this information spread, netizens responded with favorable comments and showed enthusiasm for his acting.
