[Interview] 20100510 PlayDB – “Thrill Me” Their Gaze

Intense Attraction: “Thrill Me” Ji Chang Wook and Kim Ha Neul

After its first staging in 2007, “Thrill Me” returns for the fourth time this year. We met up with the two people closest to the lead characters. It’s not simply because they are of the same age as their characters in the musical, but because of their very powerful look of confidence at having made it to the stage, and the wavering look of uncertainty in their eyes about their unforeseeable future.
