Q: The most memorable musical performance in 2012 is?

If we were to choose the most successful performance among the musical performances this year, it would be Elisabeth and Wicked.

2 musicals. Our team has discussed, and we have decided to opt for Elisabeth. This is because the investment of the performance depends on the solid numbers.

No matter how good is the performance, if the breakeven point is more than 90%, it would be very difficult to decide, because even if it is profitable, the profit will not be more than 10%.


We started off by choosing Elisabeth, it is because idol Kim Junsu came for an audition. Because of Kim Junsu, just by selling out the tickets, it can exceed the breakeven point by 60%. Before the performance started, the sales of the other performances without Kim Junsu was not performing well.

Even when it was only a day before the official performance, we were worried whether it is going to be a success and we felt very depressed. These worries disappeared completely after we have seen the first performance. Everything fits well from the completeness of the performance to the performance arrangement/layout.

Best tickets sales among the musical performances in first half of year 2012.

8 awards in The 6th Musical Awards. Good results in tickets sales, artistic qualities and so on.

Q: How strong is Kim Junsu’s ticketing power?


Kim Junsu’s performance fee shares up to 99.7 – 99.8%, it’s an unimaginable number. The ticketing sales numbers on the first day of the tickets are available for sale has also set a high record. Kim Junsu’s every performance can be sold off within an hour time. I’m wondering, is there any other musical which is also able to reach this level?

T/N: I’m not very sure about the breakeven point and the profit part. Please correct me if I’m wrong as I really have no idea on how these actually work. I guess this is actually an interview with the investors of the musicals. That’s why they were being asked about what made them decided to invest for Elisabeth and how did they actually make the choice.

Are we in the era of JYJ?

JYJ members Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun, and Kim Junsu are each excelling in films, dramas, and in musicals, drawing the attention of the fans and the industry giants alike.

First is the member Kim Jaejoong who has made his big screen debut with the movie ‘Jackal Is Coming’. He has demonstrated in television dramas that he is a more than capable actor and he’s ready to expand his potential into films. Kim Jaejoong plays an A-list star in the movie and he hasn’t shied away from making himself look ridiculous to make the character come alive. He’s been praised by the industry insiders for his passion and hard work.

Even though ‘Jackal Is Coming’ is Kim Jaejoong’s first film, he has shown acting abilities much beyond his experience and he portrays his character in the a perfect way, which is sure to hit a chord with the moviegoers. Kim Jaejoong has taken his first step in the film industry with the movie ‘Jackal Is Coming’ and many are curious as to how and if he will make a comeback with another hit at the box office.

At similar timing member Park Yoochun has started appearing on the MBC drama ‘I Miss You’, taking over the character Han Jung Woo from child actor Yeo Jin Goo. Park Yoochun will be playing the main character that lives his live in regret and sorrow for not being able to protect his first love. It’s expected that the actor will make many female fans cry from their hearts with his amazing acting.

His acting truly stood out in the drama ‘Rooftop Prince’ and his excellent acting skill is unquestioned. The viewers’ anticipation is high on how Park Yoochun will portray the deeply hurt Han Jung Woo, whose childhood experience still haunts him as an adult.

I don’t know how i must put these feeling into the words. There are many mixed feeling in my chest that right now. I always said this over and over again that i really proud to the boys….they never stop to makes me amazed with every thing that they already showed til now.

I am  sad because this boy still keep endure unfair and injustice treatment from some people, i also felt angry every time i read or saw how the government or some people still give a ridiculous or lame excuse for cover up the injustice that the boys get. But i also thought about this again and again……..there are many troubles that the boys must faced which in the end became a blessing for the boys.

Thanks to God, now the boys can started to be recognized as a group with a many talents. Even though they are not in a big entertainment agency, not being supported by a big amount of money like their condition in the past, not able to promote in music  show,  instead being disappeared or down which some people really wanna see it happen and i am sure many people really looking down them especially when the boys decided to walk out from their previous agency.

The boys proved them that they are wrong…….The boys keep stand up and learn to cope with everything that started changes and which makes me very glad. The boys keep being humble and always appreciate to everything that they have. The boys started to show their real talents that keep bury in deep of the darkness when they are still their previous agency. Even though they allowed to create a new songs or do what they can do but it seem that SM not give the boys chance to exploring their talents more and i guess i already figured out why those people do that and my suspicious about it is proved by how fast the talents that the boys have started to grew and showing the result after they left that agency.

Thanks to God for everything that the boys have and faced makes them became like now. I am really grateful that God give this path for the boys. It’s true that the journey is still long and hard but if it’s compared with the achievements and the unforgettable moments that the boys have, i guess it’s nothing…..I always believed that the banning thing is one part of trouble that disguised to be a blessing for the boys. Maybe God create a wall (with a banned matter) so the boys can achieve every things that they got now which they maybe can’t have it if they already got their freedom. Everything happen because there are a reason behind it and every problem always have the solution.

Junsu Kim has won the Best Actor for a Leading Role

18th Korean Musical Awards was held at Olympic Hall at Olympic Park, Bang-I dong Seoul on 29th October.

He could not even leave his seat for a while as if he could not believe that he had been called for the award, and sent his regards to fans and other actors/actresses with softened tears in his face and the host Jimin Hong gave him a hug for celebration.

“I don’t know whether I’m the one to receive such a big prize…”, started Junsu Kim with speechless-comment-with-pleasure.

“I guess this award is from many people and other actors/actresses’ love for me and I would like to thank to every actor/actress, staff and audience since Mozart three years ago”, he continued with tears.

He commented, “I’m so astonished and so out of my mind. Thank you so much. Thank you for my loving parents who are always on my side, and Mr. Chang Ju Baek and C-JeS family who have been my sincere supports since we had a lot of changes. I also would like to send my sincere thanks for my members Yuchun and Jaejoong who gave me  a lot of encouragement when I stated musical for the first time. Thank you for the staff at EMK who cheered a lot for me who had absolutely no idea about musical.

The producers of musical ‘Elizabeth‘ denied rumors of JYJ‘s Junsu getting paid 60 million KRW (approximately $54,000 USD) per show.

The producers, EMK Musical Company, stated, “It is not true that Junsu took 1.92 billion KRW (approximately $1.7 million USD) as a guarantee after 32 shows.

EMK Musical Company also added, “For 120 shows, ‘Elizabeth’ costs 9.5 billion KRW (approximately $8.7 million USD) for the production, or 80 million KRW ($73,000 USD) per show. That includes the venue fees, the copyright fees, the actor expenses, promotional costs, along with stage and set costs. It doesn’t make logical sense for one actor to take 75% of the total production cost. 

The company is currently planning to take legal action against the media outlet that reported about Junsu’s pay.

On October 29 at 5:20 p.m., the 18th Korea Musical Awards was held at the Seoul Olympic Hall in Bangi-dong, Songpa-gu, and Kim received the best leading actor award for his musical Elisabeth.

After receiving the award, he stood before the audience and stated, “First of all, I want to glorify my God in heaven.” His tears interrupted him for a moment.

Then he continued, “I’m not sure if I’m qualified for a great award like this. Many of you have shown me great favor through this award. I give thanks to all actors, staff, and everyone who have been there with me since my first musical Mozart three years ago. I’m so stunned at the moment and my mind went blank. Above all, I would like to thank my parents who always had strong faith in me, and CEO Baek Chang Joo, C-Jes family, Yoo Chun, Jae Joong, and all the other EMK family.

“To be honest, musical is not just a play to me; it means something more. Thanks to it, I could stand and sing on stage again, I could be invited to an awards ceremony like this, and I could be awarded with such a great award that I thought would never happen in my life.”

He concluded, “I thank you so much, and I will work hard to repay your love and support and keep striving to contribute to musical.”
