Meanwhile, Ji Chang Wook’s agency, Glorious Entertainment, sends a word of caution to all musical attendees.
Hello, this is Glorious.
With the approach of winter, we would like to make a request.
Recently, we have a small concern regarding Ji Chang Wook’s musical performances. Actor Ji Chang Wook places importance on having natural communication with fans. Hence, in order to allow for interaction between Ji Chang Wook and fans, we make special effort not to impose restrictions on this. However, we have recently noticed that a small number of fans have shown excessive interest in Ji Chang Wook, which might pose a danger.
Although we are sincerely thankful that fans love Ji Chang Wook and show interest in him, we feel that this should not come at the expense of other people. This is especially so, as the musical is not a show meant for Ji Chang Wook alone. The show is put together by the joint effort of many actors and staff and is meant to be shared together with the sweat and passion of all of them, but the excessive behaviour of a small group of fans motivated by their love for Ji Chang Wook has affected the other actors and staff who are working with him on the musical. Of course, this has also affected third parties who were also at the performance venue.
We are sincerely thankful for the love you have for Ji Chang Wook. But we would like to make an earnest plea that you maintain order at the same time.
We will also work hard on our part. We sincerely plead that you avoid any behaviour that will affect Ji Chang Wook and everyone else at the performance venue. If the disorderliness continues, we will have no choice but to persuade Ji Chang Wook and prevent him from having face-to-face interaction with fans before and after the performances.
The staff of Glorious felt uneasy seeing the situation after yesterday’s performance.
We are very aware of everyone’s deep love for Ji Chang Wook, so we carefully posted this notice.
The temperature range this November is big. Please take care of your health!
Glorious was actually very polite in their phrasing of this announcement, so my apologies if it ended up sounding harsh in English. To add my two cent’s worth on this issue, it does not come as a surprise to me that the agency made such a notice. Ji Chang Wook has always been very gracious in meeting fans after his musical performances to say a few words and give out autographs, but after experiencing a surge in popularity since Empress Ki, he has been unable to do so because of the huge crowd of people waiting to meet him after each performance. These days, he can’t even make his way into his car without having to force his way through the crowd. The behaviour of some overly-excited fans yesterday caused unhappiness among many — the performance was interrupted by fans exclaiming or laughing at inappropriate moments, which distracted him when he was acting; phone alarm notifications could be heard during the performance, and some fans even tried to touch or push him after the show. (There were both Korean and foreign fans at yesterday’s performance)
For any of you who may be flying to Korea to watch his musical, please be mindful and observe proper theatre etiquette by not talking loudly during the performance, and please turn your phone to silent mode so as not to disturb other members of the audience or distract the actors. Also, do take note that no photography or videoing is allowed at the curtain call this year. If you intend to send him off after the show, be careful not to hurt the people around you. In any case, just be a careful and considerate fan girl, and enjoy the show! 🙂
