[TRANS] 120316 DBSK & Yunho Mentioned in EXO-K Interview with High Cut Magazine + NU'EST Interview in Pledis Boys Magazine

SM Entertainment’s fresh faces, EXO-K, recently graced the cover of ‘High Cut’, a fashion publication that has some of K-Pop’s most iconic stars under its belt. Amidst the magazine’s glossy pages featuring the six up-and coming-idols, the EXO-K boys sat down for a brief interview, spilling their pre-debut stories, dorm room antics and future goals. While the boys seemed timid and shy by the unfamiliar atmosphere of an interview, High Cut’s first encounter with these young idols proved to be a down-to-earth and a heartwarming one.
When you first joined SM, who was the one sunbae you wanted to be close with?

Chanyeol: When I was younger, I wasn’t really in the know about idols or singers, but the first idol group I ever got into was TVXQ. Out of the five members, I liked Yunho sunbae the most. He was just so charismatic and I respected his unconditional care and leadership

Suho: Yunho sunbae has helped us so much throughout our trainee days. Whether it be dancing, singing or performing, he was always there to help us. Leeteuk sunbae has also become a great help to us too. He always taught us that manners, responsibilities and teamwork comes first before anything in this line of work.

[TRANS] 120315 “Elisabeth”, Which Kim Junsu Is Actively Performing In, Tops Interpark’s Daily, Weekly, Monthly & Yearly Sales Charts

On 14 March, “Elisabeth” became a topic of discussion after it ranked 1st, in Interpark’s daily, weekly, monthly and yearly sales charts among 342 musicals.

The margin between the musical which ranked 2nd on the weekly charts with a sales figure of 4.7%, and “Elisabeth’s” 18.7%, proves “Elisabeth’s” exceptional popularity.

“Elisabeth’s” box-office boom is also unusual in the musical industry overall.

Although “Elisabeth” is being performed for the first time locally, it has been receiving much attention since a few years ago, for being the most anticipated production, catching the eyes and ears of audiences. After it opened, the response was explosive, and the seats were all sold out for consecutive days.

“Elisabeth” not only beat anticipated musicals such as “Notre Dame de Paris” and “Wicked”. It also surpassed “Doctor Zhivago”, which has received much interest as it features Jo Seung Woo, and French musical “Mozart Opera Rock”, to be ranked 1st on the sales charts.

Top actors and actresses including Kim Seon Young, Ok Joo Hyun, Ryu Jung Hwan, Song Chang Ui, Kim Junsu and Park Eun Tae showcase large-scale performances which encompass both perfect performances, and an ever-changing stage. Under the glamourous theme, the musical depicts the story of a true character, Queen “Elisabeth” from the Imperial House of Habsburg in Austria, and a fictional character, “Death”, who is in love with her beauty. The musical, which has both the elements of beautiful music as well as harmony, has been highly acclaimed worldwide for this reason.

Relevant personnel from Interpark expressed, “Not only were the presale figures very high, the response from the audience in the stands has also proven it to be the a top performance. Applause sounds after every scene, and the entire audience gives a standing ovation each time. This surprised even the members of the musical industry. Also, it has been a long time since a musical has had shows which sell out on both weekdays and weekends, irrespective of how the cast switches around.”

A member of the audience who watched the performance expressed, “It was large-scale, and with the actor’s and actresses’ good acting skills, coupled with their singing abilities, I think it was well-worth the money. It feels like I’ve been compensated for the high ticket price.” This member of the audience also said, “It is an interesting musical which is rare nowadays. I would recommend it to my friends, and I feel like watching it again and again,” expressing her satisfaction after watching the musical.

On another note, the musical “Elisabeth” will be holding performances at the Samsung Hall in Blue Square, Hannam-dong, till 13 May.
