[Park Kun Hyung · Im Tae Kyung · Lee Jee Hoon · Yoon Hyung Ryol, Four – Men – Four – Featured ‘Hamlet’]



The heroes of “The New Musical Hamlet” which is a 3-country-joint project musical including Korea, Broad Way and Prague, were decided. The heroes are musical actor Park Kun Hyung (aged 31), crossover tenor Im Tae Kyung (aged 35), singer and actor Lee Jee Hoon (aged 29), singer and musical actor Yoon Hyung Ryol (aged 25).

On June 12th, the production company “Spell Entertainment” announced that they cast 4 actors who have both singing ability and outstanding look for “The New Musical Hamlet,” which will begin the performances in August.

Park Kun Hyung has been active not only in the musical ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ but also in movies and TV dramas.

Im Tae Kyung showed off opulent sensitivity and expression power in musicals ‘Sword of Fire,’ ‘Jesus Christ Super Star,’ etc.

Lee Jee Hoon, who was on the stage for the musical ‘Altarboyz’ in 2006, is busy acting in KBS 1TV daily drama, ‘You Are My Destiny,’ and singing his new songs as he released his 6th album.

Yoon Hyung Ryol is the hero of musical ‘Notre Dame de Paris.’ He was awarded ‘a new musical actor’ and ‘a popular actor chosen by netizens’ in the second ‘the Musical Awards’ this year.

Spell Entertainment expected, “The musical Hamlet has been recognized for its fine works with its powerful rock music and its fast tempo and people from three countries are participating in producing, so the musical Hamlet will be reborn as a world version.

‘The New Musical Hamlet’ will be performed as open-run (the closing of the musical depends on the audience / box-office record ) at ‘Theater S,’ which is a theater exclusively for musicals and is located in Chongpa-dong, Seoul, from August 21st.

English Translation ^^
by Camael
Subject: 뮤지컬 "햄릿" 관련 안내사항입니다!!
"Hamlet" Musical information!!

알타보이즈 이후 2년만의 뮤지컬 출연이시라
Because this is the first musical appearance since the Altar Boyz musical
2 years ago,

첫공연에 관련된 소식을 손꼽아 기다리고 계실거라 생각합니다.
I'm sure you are all anxiously awaiting information regarding JH's first
performance in the Hamlet musical!

이지훈님의 출연일정은 드라마 스케줄 등과 협의를 하셔야 하는 관계로
Because of Lee Jee Hoon's drama schedule, his Hamlet performance schedule

Lee Jee Hoon Will Appear on His First Musical Hamlet Stage






*Another look on the musical stage is expected. ---------< by reporter Yoo Byung Chol of Break News>

The singer and actor, Lee Jee Hoon, who was cast as a hero of the musical “Hamlet,” will be on his first formal stage. The musical ‘Hamlet,’ which has been on the stage on open run at theater S in the SookMyung Art Center since late last month, is being loved by many women audiences as Park Kun Hyung, Lim Tae Kyung, Yoon Hyung Ryol are appearing as Hamlets.

Lee Jee Hoon is more active than anyone else in 2008 with shooting the KBS 1TV daily drama, “You Are My Destiny” and singing activities after releasing his sixth album and now he is showing himself as a further upgraded entertainer by being on the musical stage.

A producer of the musical Hamlet, Wang Yong Bum said, “Lee Jee Hoon makes us feel sorrowful all the more because he has prince-like looks so much.” “I have found Lee Jee Hoon has grown up as an actor whose acting sense gets better and who is good at expressing thoughts after piling up his acting career since musical 'Altarboyz.'"

He added, “Lee Jee Hoon is a desirable actor I would like to work with in the future.” He introduced Lee Jee Hoon’s stage confidently, saying, “I think his musical ‘Hamlet’ is a formal musical debut stage for Lee Jee Hoon and you can see his starting as a musical actor.”

Musical Hamlet is a work which needs much practices due to intense fencing scenes as well as the singing range that is hard even for the best musical actors. It is true that Lee Jee Hoon didn’t participate in the early practices because of the drama shooting and many other TV programs.

Now at rehearsals ahead of the performances, however, Lee Jee Hoon is showing the hero Hamlet which does never fall behind in comparison with other Hamlets played by other actors. He is presenting the outcome of his underneath great efforts so far. As Lee Jee Hoon, who has been doing his best from a singer with outstanding singing ability to an actor whose acting is recognized, I am looking forward to seeing his another characteristic on the musical stage.

English Translation ^^ Thanks to Camael Esther Kim

Subject: 오라버니께서 카마엘에게 사진 선물을 남기셨습니다ㅋ 18/09/2008
JH Oppa has given Camael a photo present hehe

오늘 공연도 성공적으로 잘 마무리 되었습니다.
Today's performance was also a big success!

저는 공연을 보진 못했지만
일찌감치 현장에 가서 기다렸다
끝나고 오라버니 배웅까지 잘하고
얼른 사진 선물 전해드리려 학교로 왔습니다.^^
I didn't watch the performance, but I went to the theater early and waited outside to greet oppa when he exited after the musical to see him off - and I hurried to school so that I can deliver to you the photo gift from oppa. ^^

7시 30분경 공연장으로 가고 있는데
검은밴이 한대 지나가드라구요.
혹시 오라버니 공연을 보러 온 연예인이 아닐까
나름 추측을 했는데 딩동댕~
SM의 밴이었어요 ㅋㅋ
On my way to the theater around 7:30 p.m., I saw a black van pass by. I wondered if a celebrity could be inside the van, who came to see oppa's musical....and "ding dong daeng~~" ^^ it was SM Entertainment's van hehe

그 밴의 주인공이 누구인진 모르겠으나
소녀시대분들과 오라버니의 절친 강타씨 혜성씨를 뵐 수 있었네요.
너무 놀라 평생후원회 분들께 연락드렸는데
정말 급하게 달려오시는 그분들의 열정에 놀랐습니다 ^^
I don't know who's van it was, but inside were members of Girl Generation (So Nyuh Shee Dae) and oppa's close friends Kangta ssi and HyeSung ssi! ^^
I was so surprised that I quickly contacted Kangtaforever's admin and I was really moved by their passion when I saw how quickly they got there! ^^

아무튼 군복을 입은 강타씨가 입장하시고
조금 후 신혜성씨까지 들어가시고
Anyway, Kangta ssi entered the theater in military garb and a little afterwards, Shin Hyesung ssi entered as well.

시작된 공연!!
저는 공연장 밖에서 기다렸는데
어쩜 목청 좋은 우리 오라버니
시원시원한 고음이 바깥에서도 잘 들리더라구요.
역시 최고의 햄릿다웠어요 ^^
The start of the musical!!
I was waiting outside of the venue, but wow~ how great is our oppa's voice! I could hear his cool crisp voice from outside very clearly. Naturally, he was the best and very Hamlet-like ^^

오늘은 효은 오필리어와 승대 레어티스였는데
공연 보신 분들의 평에 의하면
윤진 오필리어와 은태 레어티스와의 호흡이 더 좋은 것 같다 하시네요 ^^
Today's musical featured Hyo Eun as Ophelia...and Seung Dae as Laertes... However, those who have watched several performances, say that the chemistry is much better with Yoon Jin as Ophelia and Eun Tae as Laertes.. ^^

아무튼 공연은 잘 마무리되고
감동 한아름 안고 나오신 우리 카마엘 가족들과
오라버니를 기다렸습니다.
Anyway, the musical went well and I waited outside for our Camael family who I'm sure were moved deeply, and for our oppa.

생각보다 많은 분들이 오셨었어요.
이럴 줄 알았음 단관을 진행해도 나쁘지 않았을텐데 아쉽더라구요.
There were more people that came than I had imagined. Had I known that this would be the case, it would have been good to get group tickets...and I felt regretful.

오늘은 공연 후 배우들과 스탭들의 회의가 있었던 모양이예요.
나오실때가 됐는데 꽤 늦어지더라구요.
11시가 다되서 나오신 오라버니께
수고 많으셨단 말씀 드렸구요.
미리 거둬뒀던 선물을 매니저님께 전달해 드렸어요.
After today's performance, it seems that there was a meeting with the cast and crew. Lots of time passed before he came out. He came out around 11 p.m. and I told him that he really worked hard. (note: it's a korean greeting like, "well done!" or "great efforts!" ^^) And I gave JH's manager all the presents that I gathered earlier.

이번에도 역시 환한 미소로 일일이 모든 분들께 악수를 다 해주셨구요.
이제 열흘간 휴가라고 푹쉬고 다시 만나자고 하셨어요 ^^
And this time too, like before, he smiled radiantly as he shook each and everyone's hands. He also said that since he now has 10 days prior to the next performance, that we should all rest and meet again then ^^

피곤하실 것 같아서 서둘러 보내드렸는데
내려와서 다시 마주친 것 있죠;;
Because he was probably tired, I tried to send him off quickly but I ran into him again later;

오라버니께서 친히 부르셔서
카마엘을 위해 사진 한장 찍어 올리라고 하셨구요.
그래서 차에 앉아 계신 상태로 한장 찍어 왔습니다.
Oppa called me over very kindly and said for me to take a picture of him to post for Camael. That is why I took a picture of him while he was still sitting in his seat.

따끈따끈한 오라버니의 마음이 담긴 사진
지금 곧 사진방에 올리도록 하겠습니다 ^^
The photo which is full of oppa's very warm heart... I will now post it at the PDS/photo room. ^^

공연하시느라 힘드실텐데
늘 샤방샤방 카마엘을 맞이해주시는 오라버니
감사드리구요.
오늘 오셨던 카마엘 식구들도 모두 수고 많으셨습니다.
I'm sure he's very tired from working on the musical, but he always "Shya Bang Shya Bang-ly" greets and meets with Camael^^ and I thank him for this. And for all our Camael family that made it to the musical tonight, you all did great/made great efforts too.

비행기 스케줄은 드라마 일정에 맞춰야 해서
아직 나오지 않은 것 같구요.
어쩌면 내부적인 사정으로 비공개로 가실 수도 있다고 하네요.
참고하시기 바랍니다 ^^
His flight schedule needs to fit according to his drama schedule, so it is not available yet. And it is also quite possible that his flight schedule may not be released (kept private) due to other reasons... please keep this in mind and take note. ^^

오라버니 말씀대로
열흘간 휴가를 즐기고
다음주 금요일에 또 열심히 달려가보자구요!! ㅋㅋ
As oppa said, let's enjoy the next 10 days, and let's look forward to supporting him again next week Friday!! hehe

이곳 저곳 훈릿 입소문 많이 내는거 잊지마세요~
And please do not forget to spread the word about Hoonlet everywhere~

아참 공연이 끝나고
곧바로 나가실거라 예상했던 초대손님들께서
커튼콜 끝까지 자리를 지키며
자리에서 일어나 "이지훈"을 외치셨다고 해요 ^^
너무 귀여운 친구분들이죠 ㅋㅋㅋ
Oh yes! After the end of the performance, I thought that JH's special guests would leave immediately, but they stayed in their seats until the end of the curtain call and even stood up to cheer "Lee Jee Hoon!"^^ They are such cute friends, aren't they? hehehe ...

[Excellent Choice and Success, Prince Hamlet, Lee Jee Hoon!] 21/09/2008





“To be, or not to be – that is the question.” Hamlet agonized himself whether to fight against harsh fate or to live a life surrendering to lies.

Hamlet, one of the tragedies written by the great English writer William Shakespeare, is a classic everyone may have ever heard of or read at least once. Hamlet, the tragedy, has a background of Danish royal family 400 years ago, and the hero of the tragedy, Hamlet had raised wrath and revengeful thoughts, seeing his mother marry his uncle who murdered his father. But who can really sympathize with the life of Hamlet in such an unusual situation? We can only get the rough idea of it.

There is a man who is experiencing Hamlet’s life with all his mind and body and expressing Hamlet’s life through songs and dances on the stage. He is the singer and actor, Lee Jee Hoon. He is now holding the stage under his control as Hamlet in the new musical Hamlet. He is showing the best performance with maturity, experience and charisma which he gained from his career over 10 years. Audience kept cheering and applauding for a long time after the performance and JH is the very hero of the stage.

“Firstly, as Hamlet is a prince, I am well-matched to Hamlet, don’t you think so?” he joked at the question how he got to join the musical. Then, soon he became serious. “I watched the first Hamlet performance. Of course, I read the book long time ago. I couldn’t understand some parts of the tragedy when I read it, but when I saw the musical, I got to understand the whole things. His father was murdered and his mother married his uncle who killed his father. While he was planning revenge, Ophelia and her father died…Then, I got to understand what drove Hamlet to do so. Only then, I could understand his wrath and regret for the first time. Sincere and human Hamlet is quite a desirable character.”

“I always longed to be on the musical stage. My singing career is over 10 years and my acting is reaching the stage of maturity. I hoped to be on a musical stage which can combine acting and singing. I hoped to show audience my another appearance which people have never seen from me. I hoped to challenge to a new field and receive much recognition.”

When he got the proposal to be a Hamlet, however, he hesitated, too. “ I thought it would be too much for me to be on the stage because my schedule is too heavy. When I show a poor performance, I will be hit by arrows of disappointment as much as their expectation to me.” Besides, 4 people were cast as Hamlet. Park Kun-Hyung, Lim Tae- Kyung and Yoon Hyung-Ryol are recognized in the musical field. Lee Jee Hoon had no choice. He should show the best performance equal to them.

He is preparing with such a resolution. So, he picks up an umbrella when he has time. Fencing match with Laertes, Ophelia’s brother, is a climax of the musical. “I concentrate on the fencing practice. Because the timing is very important and difficult to get.” His agent/manager is the practicing partner.

“As far as I am a singer, I hope to impress audience through songs in the musical where songs can stand out remarkably. Music in the musical is an axis which leads performance. Songs are the lines which convey emotions and do the communication. The vocalization of ballads, the genre of most of my songs, is that of drawing inward. So, I am not ready to throw my voices outward whether it is low or high. That is why I got to be pointed out that I sang like a pop singer when I sang musical songs at first. But I am better now,” he affirmed.

Dance is left open yet. “In the musical, there are many big motions like tap dance and group dance. I think I can dance well enough to bring into line with others. But I feel awkward still now.”

He shows love scenes, too. He kisses Ophelia briefly and he takes off his shirt and pants for bed scene. “Now that I have acted for quite some time, I don’t feel awkward at all, but only I find it hard to get good timing when I take my pants off on the bed…timing is important in that scene.” He is serious and said, “If the drama is good, if there is coherence and if necessary, I don’t decline to be in the nude.”

He differentiates his Hamlet from Park Kun Hyung, Yoon Hyol Ryol, and Lim Tae Kyung Hamlets which stand on charisma and power. “(Hoon-let is) Hamlet with warmth, sweetness and tenderness. Nevertheless, he also dies like other Hamlets at last.”

“I can’t forget the thrill and the feeling which I felt and made me shudder at the moment I came down after finishing my first performance.” “I thought I did the right thing to decide to be in this musical. I also thought that I am in character with Hamlet. At first, I worried and wondered if my new look of anger and outcry could appeal to audience because I had never showed anger and outcry. But after I did it, it served as a chance for me to find a new aspect of myself,” he diagnosed.

“I once turned my eyes to Laertes for a moment, because I shed tears whenever I hear the musical songs which Ophelia and Laertes sing together. But Hamlet is the best. There is no character like Hamlet. Hamlet is a prince, above all,” he laughed mentioning prince again.

Lee Jee Hoon emphasized, “The musical Hamlet is a good work which can make audience feel that a good work is born after a long time.” He showed his confidence, “You will never regret having spent the ticket fee. Though Hamlet is a hero, all characters have reasons for being and their situations are persuasive in the musical.” “You may get another feeling when you watch the musical once again. The more you watch the musical, the more you get to fall into it.”

Lee Jee Hoon gave his word, “I will make up for the insufficient or weak points and show you all I have at the last performance."

Message from Lee Jee Hoon official fanclub - Camael

Recap of Last Friday's Hamlet!

In case some of you have not seen at the Korean Board... ^^

************
Just a short summary in English ^^ (thanks to Esther Kim for the translation)

The Camael President, Kim Kyung Hee, and just a few members of Camael
went to see JH in Hamlet yesterday, Friday (after the 10 days of rest
JH mentioned.. ^^)..

They were seated a little towards the back and there was a
considerable difference in acoustics and sound from these seats...
However, fortunately, the sound came through the speakers very loudly
and so the lyrics were heard very clearly. ^^

Not surprisingly, JH gave a tremendous performance!!
The 2nd part of the show displayed a much more relaxed and natural
JH in his acting and singing, than the 1st part...

It also seems that he changed his wardrobe a bit too...
and some stage props were changed from previous performances too...

And there were special celebrity guests at yesterday's performance too:
Girl Generation's Yoona (Sae Byuk from You Are My Destiny),
Jung Ryuh Won, Park Jee Yoon, and Jazz Pianist Song Kwang
Shik (who is also very close friends with Kangta!^^)...
Also, many of JH's church members came to cheer him on~~ JH was
probably very happy! ^^

And when JH appeared for the curtain call, though they were few in
number, they cheered so loudly that the audience viewers all noticed~hehe
(WAY TO GO CAMAEL!!! ^^)

And after the musical ended, they waited a long time before JH came out..
He was wearing the "training/track" suit he wore at the Japan fanmeeting..
and they all squeezed into the elevator together and were able to talk to
him on the way down..

She gave JH a special gift~ ^^
She searched online and found many articles/comments/reviews
about the Hamlet musical to date... and scrapbooked them together~~
JH was so impressed and commented that he tried looking and couldn't
find any....and asked how she found so much!? ^^

They asked JH if he saw them stand at their seats to cheer...and he
didn't see them.. however, he did hear them!! ^^

Then they sent JH off~~ but of course, there is a photo ^^
As soon as it's ready, she will post it in the photo room~~
JH's next performance is next Friday for those who can make it!!^^

TO BE OR NOT TO BE LEE JI HOON

Singer and actor Lee Ji-hoon (You’re My Destiny, Hello! Miss) is wrapping up his role of the Prince of Denmark in the musical production of Hamlet and had a few thoughts on the experience playing one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters.

The role of Hamlet is actually being shared among four actors; Lee Ji-hoon alternates with Park Gun-hyung, Im Tae-hyung, and Yoon Hyun-ryul. Currently, he’s spending his free time practicing his sword skills, particularly for his fight with Laertes, since timing is the most important aspect in the fight choreography.

Lee explains that he’d always wanted to do a musical, having begun his singing career more than ten years ago and now enjoying a television acting career: “I want to show people yet another side to me that hasn’t been shown before. I want to try new things and be recognized for them.” With the curtain about to come down on the production, Lee hopes he’ll be able to correct all his previous flaws in his last performance.

Hamlet is currently running and closes on September 21.

Recap of 3rd Oct 2008 Hamlet!

(From the Korean Board~~ ^^)

Short English Summary ^^

Past Camael President Lee Sumi ssi posted her recap of the 10/3/2008
Hamlet performance!

She got to Theater S about an hour early and it was quite empty... it was during rehearsal...
She saw JH's sister, brother-in-law, and his nieces there, who came to watch the rehearsal, and spoke with them. JH came out for a second after rehearsal and she asked how his condition was today....and he flashed back his signature radiant smile! ^^

Slowly the theater filled as it got closer to showtime... and she took her seat about 10 minutes prior to the start... she looked around and saw quite a number of people she recognized! ^^
Tae Young (Lee Pilmo) and So Young (Kim Jung Nan) from "You Are My Destiny" were there~~
And so were the two gentlemen that work in the Lohas office with Sae Byuk~~

It was great to see JH up on stage a week after his last performance - he looked great as Hamlet!! And now it seems he's a bit more comfortable with the Curtain Call, as he even ad-libbed with perfect sense and timing for great audience applause~

And Lee Pilmo (Tae Young) cheered, "Lee Jee Hoon!! I love you!!" and the entire theater was full of laughter! ^^

After the musical, the fans all greeted JH....who seemed a bit tired...
but he still greeted everyone so kindly and with smiles and laughter~ ^^

JH will rest on Saturday, but will have another two performances on Sunday. Fighting!!!

Also! After the performance, the stars of "You Are My Destiny" who came
to the show were also greeting JH... and it was a great feeling to see them and each give the "thumbs up!" sign to JH~~ Sumi ssi felt so proud of our JH!!

************

Here is what Eunwon ssi posted in a comment ^^ (summary)
(hope you don't mind my translating~ ^^)

Well...she was there too and sat in the front row~ ^^ so she was unable to see the other celebrities in the back... but she heard some interesting conversations from people sitting around her~~

A few seats away, a man was saying to a woman, "I can see why you wanted to see Lee Jee Hoon up close." And from behind, another
woman was saying, "our two tickets...close to 140,000 WON...that's the
cost of a nice purse... but it sure is nice!! After we get married, let's go watch a show every 3 months." And "Lee Jee Hoon sure is charming!!"
And the first couple a few seats away kept turning to look at the cheering Camaelers~~ hehe ^^ and giggled~~ All the Camael members there did a great job cheering for JH~~!! Everyone in the audience seemed to be one - in unison - in their cheering for JH~~ ^^
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whoa! JeeHoonssi really had a spectular performance! Everyone cheered! We, from this forum, are all very proud of you!!
