Tiffany Completes Final ‘Fame’ Musical Performance



Last night, Tiffany completed her final performance for the musical “Fame”. In the musical, she portrayed the character Carmen Diaz, a performing arts student with dreams of becoming famous. Her first performance was a little over a month ago, and SONEs showed their support for Tiffany by sending a large amount of rice to celebrate her musical debut. For her final show last night, SONEs put together another special event to show their appreciation and love for Tiffany.

After the final curtain call, SONEs prepared a cake outside the venue where the musical was performed. The cake was surrounded by candles arranged in a heart shape. Once Tiffany emerged from the venue, SONEs cheered wildly and congratulated her for a successful stint as a musical actress. After blowing out a candle on the cake and drawing loud applause from the fans, Tiffany exclaimed, “Saranghaeyo!” to the fans and promised to continue working hard in the future.





The congratulatory fan event ended as Tiffany walked to her car on a red carpet that was lined on both sides by candles. The red carpet and candles had also been prepared by SONEs in attendance. Tiffany turned and waved to her fans several more times before finally getting in her car to return home.

Cho joins ‘Doctor Zhivago’

Actor Cho Seung-woo

By Kwon Mee-yoo

Top actor Cho Seung-woo will join the new musical “Doctor Zhivago” as a male lead.

Initially, model-turned-actor Ju Ji-hun was cast for the role of Russian doctor Yuri Zhivago whose life is shaken by the Russian Revolution and Civil War in the early 20th century. However, he quit the position due to problems with his vocal chords, forcing OD Musical Company, the production firm, to look for a replacement two weeks before the opening.

“People might see me as a relief pitcher or replacement, but for now Yuri Zhivago is my role,” Cho said at a press conference.

Cho just finished his latest show “Zorro” Sunday and leaked his appearance in Doctor Zhivago at the curtain call for his last performance, hinting that he would “bring Russia to Jamsil,” where the theater is located.

The surprise choice was put down to the friendship between Cho and Shin Chun-soo, producer and CEO of OD Musical Company. The company has staged many hit musicals including “Jekyll and Hyde,” which Cho starred in

“The production was facing difficulties as Ju withdrew from the show. After thinking about it overnight I decided to ask Cho to take on the role of Zhivago,“ Shin said. “I have known Cho for years and knew he chooses works based on the artistic quality of the musical. It is absurd to ask an actor to play the role he had already refused, but I could ask again because it was Cho.”

Shin said the production has an understudy, but he thought it would be best to have another actor to play the lead role for the five-month run. “I think it is almost miraculous to hold this press conference and introduce Cho as the new Zhivago.”

“Frankly speaking, I thought Shin was off his rocker when I got a call from him (to join Doctor Zhivago),” the actor said. “Wondering why Shin asked me, I visited the rehearsal room the next day without contacting him. When I saw other actors rehearsing, I was moved by them. I then thought Shin was confident in Zhivago and was somewhat infatuated by his challenging spirit.”

Cho said he saw a video clip of the Australian production of the musical and was fascinated by the music and speedy scene changes which seemed boring in the script. “I was fascinated by the musical as if I was Yuri Zhivago in the vortex of the Russian Revolution,” he said.

The show will open on Jan. 27 at the Charlotte Theater in southern Seoul and run through June 3. The company said Hong Kwang-ho, another actor cast for Zhivago, would cover the show alone until Cho joins the show. It also cancelled six performances since he cannot perform nine shows a week.

Cho said exact date of his first performance will be announced later, but it usually takes about four to six weeks for him to rehearse.

Kim Junsu from JYJ, ‘Being In Elisabeth Was Decided Without Hesitation’

Feelings have emerged of JYJ Kim Junsu’s casting in the musical “Elisabeth”.

On the afternoon of January 17th in downtown Seoul at the Namusan Production Center, the rehearsal of the musical “Elisabeth” was released with Kim Junsu’s comment, “It is an honor to best cast in this musical with such amazing artists.”

Junsu commented, “Without even realizing, it has become my third time being cast in a musical. Still being in a position of having yet to learn, it is a great honor to be able to act amongst such great artists, and to be a part of the creation of this production. I think this will give me the opportunity to learn a lot from my seniors, and just the chance to appear in this production is an honor.”

Furthermore with Sylvester Levay as the music composer (also from the musical “Mozart”) Junsu decided to be in this production without hesitation. “I will work hard for the role I was entrusted with,” Junsu stated.

On another note, the musical “Elisabeth” depicts the dramatic life of Elisabeth, the empress of Austria. The musical will begin on February 9th at the Blue Square Samsung Electronics Hall.
