T/N: Yoshio Inoue is a musical actor who was cast as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Japan back in late 2007. The article below is his column at Monthly Musical March issue entitled “My Musical Story part 3″. Yoshio Inoue traveled to Vienna and London before for his part 1 and 2 articles and now the Seoul story is published.
I watched Korean version of Mozart during my last visit to South Korea! I watched it two times.
TVXQ Junsu who acted as Wolfgang is amazingly popular, I was surprised to see hundreds audiences that came from Japan.
I found myself having some conversation with the other audiences which was always followed by a question, “And what do you think about Junsu’s Wolfgang?” it’s truly a hard question to answer, and I’d been in trouble for so many times due to this. ^^
However, I think he was a very cute and charming Wolfgang.
After the performance, I was able to meet with Junsu at the backstage.
Since it’s just right after the end of the stage, he must be exhausted, however he showed a concern to me instead, and for him being so gentle, I’m thrilled!
And as I told him, “I was the Wolfgang in Japan” We began to share various experiences of our each other performances.
He said, “At the last death session, I always think that I’m actually dying,” and I unintentionally shouted, “Yes! Me too!!” showing a strenuous agreement.
It was only a brief conversation, but since we had experienced the same role thus I feel that our heart shared the same deep feeling, I’m really glad.
