Seungri has challenged dancing, singing and other specials talents of his for the musical, thus getting positive comments.
“Originally, the number of people attending the musical was only 30% [I think he's talking about Sonagi]. However it has soared to 90%. It was really a hot sell, and the comments received were great. I’m so happy. I was like I always were, dancing and singing, and at the same time, I could feel the charm of acting.
Singers also need acting skills. Although some singers think that their acting skills are bad, personally, I feel that singers are like artistes who stand on the stage, and use their vocals and dancing skills to perform. When actors/actresses kiss during TV dramas or movie, the audience would usually say, “Wow! So pretty, so handsome!” TOP and Lee Hyori’s kiss on stage is just the same thing. Watching it with a happy mood is enough.”
He wants to continue to try out acting, so he chose “Theatrical movie” as his subject in university, and from then on, he focused on musicals,trying to culture his own abilities.
”I want to do something that I always wanted to do. I have a dream, I want to act out in the musical, “JEKYLL&HYDE”, with the role, JEKYLL, the youngest teenager.”
During the preview of “The Phantom Of The Opera”, he was lucky that through others’ recommendations, he met JEKYLL Brad Little.
“I was delighted. We ate together too. Others introduced me to him, saying, ‘He is one of the singers in Bigbang, and wants to be an actor in a musical’. Brad Little has performed 600 times. Ahh… I really want to try it out too. After serving in the army, I would reach the suitable age to act as JEKYLL. For that day, I must work hard.”
