Following after JYJ’s Kim Junsu, B2ST’s Jang Hyun Seung was chosen to be the main character in the musical, Mozart!
He has been casted as Mozart in the musical, Mozart! (produced by EMK Musical Company), to be performed on July 10 at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts in Seoul.
Having always wanted to act since his debut, Jang Hyun Seung was able to make his dreams come true through Mozart!.
“I’m really glad to be making my musical debut with the best production. In order to portray the charming character of Mozart, I’ve been trying to get into character.” Jang Hyun Seung said, “Because Kim Junsu has always shown perfection, and Park Eun Tae, performing in the same musical as I am, excels in what he does, I was very intimidated, but I′ll do my best since it’s always been an area that I wanted to be a part of.”
Producer Yoo Hee Sung said, “Just like when Kim Junsu first started with this production, I was uncertain about this being Hyunsung’s first musical, but after seeing his passion towards this musical as well as his strong will to create his own kind of character, I decided to cast him.”
First appearing in South Korea in 2010, the musical, Mozart! is about the life of the genius composer, Mozart, shown in different perspectives. In the same year, it won a total of eleven trophies at various musical award ceremonies, confirming the production value as well as its popularity.
Along with the reggae hair and jeans, the ability to transition from rock to jazz to classical is this musical’s attraction. Tickets will be sold on May 14 and the musical will be performed at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts from July 10 to 28.
After gathering much attention with 4 Minute’s Hyuna with the song Trouble Maker, Jang Hyun Seung is also planning a comeback with a new B2ST album. He will start practicing for his musical alongside his album preparations.
