Kara’s Park Gyuri’s first performance of “200 Pounds Beauty” was a success and she received positive criticism for her role.
According to Kara’s agency DSP Media the musical “200 Pounds Beauty” that began on October 8 has been sold out for all three showings from October 8-10.
The musical will be showed in Japan until November 6 and will also be shown in Korea and other Asian nations.
The age group that went to see the musical in Japan ranges from younger age groups to middle aged groups. Originally Japanese tradition does not dictate encores and standing ovations but after the musical ended, many demanded an encore. There were three more curtain calls because of the requests for an encore.
Park Gyuri stated, “I am so happy that Japanese viewers received us so well. Although I am receiving attention, I know that there are parts I can improve. I will try my best in order to show a better side of me so that the musical will be successful.”
