Wait… am I dreaming? This is too good to be real.
you’re not dreaming girl 😉
But I think L and Light had reversed hair color. L hair should be black in color.
Maybe junsu wanna try a new character of L? Well, lets see hows junsu play his role this time. And to take role as L isnt easy too.
I mean a new image of ” L”
maybe junsu will change his hair when the performance will be near it’s in june
Oh my god!!!

Thank you JYJ3 for posting this great news!!
OMO! WHAT A YEAR OUR XIA IS HAVING FIRST FLOWER NOW DEATH NOTE AS L DAEBAK!!
OMG THIS’S MY FAV ANIME/MANGA EVER, N JUNSU WILL BE IN IT…I WANNA WATCH IT SO BADLY *sorry for the caps, basically losing my sane mind hahaha*
OMG!!!! JJ must be so jealous! XD XD XD
that’s really cool!
OMG hsvjfjfjhgfjqsqfjfgh I’m out of words is that a dream !!!
No role is too strange or shocking that Junsu can’t handle. He’s done it with Elizabeth and Dracula, this will be no exception 🙂
I am not familiar with “Death Note” but I still so excited to hear that he will be in another musical!!!!!! I am so happy for him that he is going to get to play such a popular character!!!!!!
Deathnote was an extremely popular series of Japanese films. You can buy them or even probably watch them online somewhere.
Am I the only one who thinks those shinigami are waaay too sexy for their Death Notes? (So sexy it hurtsss.)
And Misa is so lovely asdfghjkl; I’ve always liked this character, and the actress they cast is so pretty. Now I really wanna watch this.
Junsu as L is unexpected though. I mean, how much more different can a character and an actor get? Junsu is made of sugar and sunshine, and L… well… loves sugar? (The only remotely happy thing about him.)
I’m sure Junsu will slay the role though. It will definitely be interesting to watch.
