[TRANS] 100517 The “4th The Musical Awards” Nominees for “Best Newcomer” – Xiah Junsu

Termed as the ‘new blood’, the nominees for ‘Best Newcomer’ in the “4th The Musical Awards” have caused a new flurry of activity within the Arts scene.

In one of Korea’s most prestigious musical theatre event “The Musical Awards”, even the newcomers have attracted a whole lot of attention.
From the appearances of idol star Xiah Junsu, senior ballet dancer Kim Ju Yeon and ex-Miss Korea Lee Ha-nui, one can see that the scope of the musical scene has indeed widened. They are also facing strong competition from other musical actors for an award that comes along only once in a musical actor’s entire career. Because of this, after the list of nominees in the respective categories were being released on the 12th in the event jointly sponsored by BC Loun.G, there was a huge focus placed upon the category of “Best Newcomer”.

Let's review on some of the nominees who have brought about a whole new direction and possibility to Korea’s musical scene.

[Best Newcomer – Male Actor]
Possessing great courage amidst an excellent vocal ability – Xiah Junsu.
On the 26th of January, the Sejong Center Theater was completely packed.
That was the debut of DBSK’s Xiah Junsu (real name Kim Junsu; 24 years of age) in the musical “Mozart!”.
For the 15 sessions that he acted in, all 45,000 tickets were completely sold out in a short time span of three hours.

In a situation where people were worried about his status as an idol, Xiah Junsu won them over with his singing abilities.
Thanks to long hours of trainings and his numerous experiences on being on stage, it was almost impossible to detect the anxiety within him.

The key is in the acting.
Being a greenhorn in acting, he once said that “I do not want to play Mozart, I want to become Mozart”, then he stood on stage as Mozart himself.
And because of that, the other actors who star in the musical evaluated him as an actor with "natural acting abilities".
