Musical “Bachelor’s Vegetable Store” is based on the true story of a young man who turned a tiny vegetable store into a nationwide franchise and it boasts 300 hundred million each year. It will take place on February, at the Sunshine Theatre.
This time, this musical has new faces for the main cast who are from Korean idols. They are CROSS GENE’s Seyoung, TEENTOP’s Ricky, BOYFRIEND’s Donghyun, and ZE:A Minwoo.
Then, before performing the musical, they have a press-conference in Seoul Studio, Korea.
◆ First of all, please introduce your self and your role
Donghyun: Hello. I’m BOYFRIEND’s leader, Donghyun. In this musical, I'm playing a role of Yoonmin, a very active and free man who just returned from abroad. I’m looking forward to it, because I can show a different side that I’ve never shown before on the stage.
◆ How do you feel when you being cast in this musical?
Donghyun： I’ve performed at musical before, then I heard so many fans asked me to do a musical again, also I myself want to do it again. So when I being cast in this musical, I was so happy. And I did a lot of mistakes before, so this time I want to do better. I’m so nervous, and also fell happy.
◆ What is the point that you want to appeal here (when performing the musical), through your role?
Donghyun： Through Yoonmin’s role, I want to show an active and free character to everyone.
◆ This is the first time you meet as the casts, how is your impressions?
Donghyun： I saw Minwoo (ZE:A) many times on the TV, but this is the first time we meet and talk, and he’s really a simple person. I’m so happy.
◆ How was your group members’ reaction when you being cast?
Donghyun: Their reaction was very good. BOYFRIEND’s members teased me as well. In the last musical, even they are younger than me, they copy-cat my crying scene. And they said they won’t come to see me this time, but then they said they was joking and will come to see me.
◆ Reffering to “Vegetable store” topic, please tell us vegetables and fruits do you like.
Donghyun：I like all fruits. There’s nothing I like better. I like all. When it comes to vegetables, I like chili, garlic, and spring onion. Because vegetables can be eaten with meat.
Seyoung： I like fruits better than rice, so I eat a lot of fruits. I have no fruit that I dislike. I like garlic out of the vegetables the most, unlike my members who really dislike it. When we go eat meat, I like garlic’s area the most, I’ll be the one who eat the whole garlics.
Donghyun: Me too (high-touches with Seyoung）
◆The last, please give a message for Japanese audiance.
Donghyun: I always have no much time when I meet the fans every time I go to Japan, so they come to Korea and ask me to come to Japan again, makes me really want to go. And to have this good chance because you asked me to do a musical many times, I'm so happy. I would be happier, if many audiences would like to come and see this musical.
