“It was sad and I cried so much. It’s such a touching production.”
Audience members of the first performance of ‘Tears of Heaven’, the global project musical featuring Kim Junsu (TVXQ’s Xiah Junsu), were busy wiping tears away as they left the theater.
The first performance of ‘Tears of Heaven’ was held at 8pm on February 1st at the National Theater in JangChoong-dong, Seoul. All 1500 seats were sold out and fans of Xiah Junsu who were unable to secure tickets flocked to the theater to see if they could buy scalper’s tickets. But it was close to impossible to get even those as the show had already been sold out for more than 20 days.
‘Tears of Heaven’ is a large-scale musical centered around a love story that blooms amidst the war in Vietnam anbd it targets the global market. A total of 3 years and 6 months were put into the preparation of the musical and five countries (Hungary, USA, Canada, Czech Republic, Japan) were visited in the process.
In the production, Xiah Junsu plays the lead role of Jun, a Korean soldier in Vietnam who falls in love with a Vietnamese woman and gives his all to her; he showcased charismatic acting skills and explosive vocal abilities.
The dramatic scenes in Vietnam, San Francisco and Seoul captivated the audience who couldn’t help but clap enthusiastically at Xiah Junsu and Yoon Gong Ju’s perfect performance. Women could be seen wiping tears away as they left the theater for intermission after the first act.
In the second act, the earnest love between the Korean soldier and Vietnamese woman that overcame an ill-fated love and death made the eyes of audience members prickle with tears, and many women could be seen wiping these tears away as they sat deep in thought watching the show.
When the performance was over, the entire crowd gave the production cast a standing ovation.
On this day, Jung Sang Yoon and Jeon Dong Seok, the two actors cast alongside Kim Junsu for the lead role, as well as Lee Haeri were seen amongst the crowd as audience members.
The third round of reservations of 4,500 seats for ‘Tears of Heaven’ was sold out in 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Kim Junsu, who showcased his extreme ticket power by selling out the first round of 15,000 seats in 5 minutes and the second round of 13,000 seats in 3 minutes and 30 seconds, set a new record by selling the third round of tickets in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Xiah Junsu stated, “I really want to thank the musical, the musical maniacs who love me, and my fans. The lights, set and audio system that a global staff worked on was so perfect. ‘Tears of Heaven’ will be a great performance that could be put on Broadway with pride.”
The large-scale musical ‘Tears of Heaven’, that was created by global giants of the industry, held its first performance on February 1st and will keep playing at the National Theater’s Haeoreum Hall until March 19th.
