A performance press conference for the musical “Shinheung Military School” was held today (19 September) at the Theatre Yong in the National Museum of Korea.
Ji Chang Wook said, “While acting, I thought this could be the most difficult character I’ve ever done. I pondered and sought advice on how I should grasp the emotions of Dong Kyu.”
“This character has a lot of inner turmoil. I thought about how I should act in order for him to be a little more relatable to the audience. Though I may be inadequate, I’m performing now with my best effort.”
With regards to him being part of a single cast along with actors Kang Ha Neul and Sung Gyu, he said, “Honestly, it is tiring.” (*Note: Musicals usually have more than 1 set of cast that they rotate around for different performances, but this musical only has 1 set of lead actors so they have to perform in every show.)
He continued, “That’s why I’m working hard to maintain my fitness. There are also many days with 2 rounds of performances. All of us get along well and we even went to get IV injection. We will be fine this week. We will perform in good condition for the rest of the Seoul performances.”
“Shinheung Military School” will have performances staged at Theatre Yong in Seoul’s National Museum of Korea until 22 September.
