VIXX’s Ken And BTOB’s Changsub Talk About Taking On The Role Of Tsukasa (Goo Jun Pyo) In “Boys Over Flowers” Musical
Recently “Entertainment Weekly” interviewed Super Junior’s Sungmin, VIXX’s Ken, and BTOB’s Changsub for their upcoming musical “Boys Over Flowers.”
The reporter noted that Ken had played a prince in the “Cinderella” musical and asked how much of his real personality synchronized with the role of a chaebol heir.
“About 45 percent,” Ken said. “Because I’m not rich… and I can be a bit dumb.”
When Changsub was asked how he was cast for his first-ever musical, he said, “My company got me the role…”
He added, “It’s my first musical and I’m playing a lead role so I feel a big burden, but it inspires me to practice more.”
The boys are also asked to sing some pop songs in a “musical” style. Ken takes on “Sorry Sorry” in honor of Super Junior’s Sungmin, while Changsub tries to sing VIXX’s “The Closer.” Although the latter was a bit of a failure, Sungmin tried to prop his colleague up, saying, “It was like watching ‘Jekyll and Hyde.'”
