What kind of person is an actor?

What kind of person is an actor?

The actor is also a mirror that reminds the audience of hope, warmth, and harsh reality. Those who are tired of their daily lives receive laughter and emotion from their works, and dream of the lives of actors living on stage for a while. I want to shout my story to the world, and I also imagine thrilling excitement on stage.

Actors’ performances also project reality. The audience reflects on the bitter reality through the actors. It is an opportunity to criticize and reflect on how I live and whether the society I live in is legitimate for me.

What is learning for the actors themselves? I asked actors Yoo Seong-ju, Lee Ki-seop, Kim Do-hyun, Shin Sung-min, and Choi Ho-joong what the actors meant to them standing on the stage.

Actor is one of the jobs. I’m just giving someone a little joy with this job.”

An actor is also a profession. Even those who play a special role in the eyes of the audience are for the actors themselves. Actor Yoo Seong-joo, who is starring in the play “Fighters,” answered the question of “What is an actor?” and said, “I don’t think actors are very different from other professions. I think it is one of many jobs. And actors can meet the countless jobs on stage. As an actor, he does not go on stage with a strong sense of mission. However, it is a job where actors can go to the end with fun.” However, the audience is getting more because they have no forced intention of delivering something great to others. The sincerity reflected in it is more valuable because it is silently faithful to the role of an actor.

Actor Lee Ki-sup of the musical ‘Gun Election’ also gave a similar answer. “Acting is just a job. Is there anything special? Like all occupations, it is an existence that can be of strength to someone. It’s rewarding, that you accidentally pass by and can be a joy to someone.” Actor Lee Ki-seop said that all jobs can be a strength to someone, but in fact, it’s not as great as the power the actor gives directly to the audience. The small joy they give has a big impact on the lives of the audience, but they accept it humbly.

“A life where you always strive for better things”

Actors can humbly accept their roles because they always have bigger dreams. Actor Lee Ki-sup said about the hardest part of his acting career, “As all actors do, we wait for the right time. Waiting for my highlight that I don’t know when I’ll come. Even if that time comes, you can’t catch it unless you’re always trying. You should always run at full speed as if you were running a hundred meters. But I can continue to do it because it’s fun for the actor.”

The actors always have a high ground like a dream. There’s always a place to go up, and there’s a lot to learn. Actor Choi Ho-joong of the musical “Goddess Is Watching” said, “The job of an actor is to learn.” You learn a lot from all the works and characters. Many people are always watching, so they receive silent feedback that they must constantly develop. That’s why I always try harder,” he said. Is there a more valuable life than trying to learn more and always thinking about development? Actor Shin Sung-min of the musical “Goddess Is Watching” was careful to even use the instruction to learn because there was still so much to learn. He said, “I don’t think I’m an actor yet. As an aspiring actor, an actor is a ‘dream’. It’s what you want to be. It is my greatest pleasure to communicate with the audience when I am on stage. I dream of greater communication,” he said.

“I want to convey my innocence to the audience”

Apart from the profession of actors, what can be given to the audience as a human being is their pure and free soul. Their lives in pursuit of innocence without being worn out by the times of the world are hope for others. Audiences get a glimpse of the clear world through actors and get hope that “the world is still worth living.”

Actor Kim Do-hyun, who is on the stage of the play “Gwanghae,” delivered this message with his first word. His first words were, “What is an actor? In a word, I am.It was (laughs). “Actor is a person who has to have the heart of Peter Pan regardless of the flow of the world. You should keep a pure heart even when you become an adult. But it’s not easy. My heart keeps growing into an adult. If you go into practice with an adult mind, it becomes difficult. When you are young, you should play like a naughty boy and live an actor life without greed with an open mind. When you are young, you don’t have a frame of mind, so you respond to small things with wide open eyes. However, as you become an adult, the door to accept becomes smaller as you gain experience. I want to give the audience a childlike heart. No matter how hard it is, I want to convey the innocence that makes me laugh.”

 Story

The star who got 100,000 views (?) on YouTube at an unknown busking performance! Looking at the male protagonist walking along the same path, I thought that efforts do not betray me.

Seeing my brother who wanted to make his brother successful but couldn’t do anything for him in the end, I thought I should do it firmly without being swayed by people around me.

Unplugged festival that could not be done due to the heroine’s amnesia. In the end, Orange Sky’s friendship, which we wrote together on stage, was touching.

 Busking to promote

Uniquely, the last promotional comment was like buskingIt’s time to shoot, so I filmed a video As expected, busking concept properly


Conclusion: I really recommend it👍🏻

Unplugged Daehakro Theater

I went without much expectation, but I really enjoyed it.

It will be a comfort and support for those who choose a different path due to reality and those who are struggling at the crossroads.


I hope that many actors and plays that must have been hard due to COVID-19 will be known now.

HyeHwa University Road Play <500 to 30>

“The main characters who live like a family in a 500 to 30 studio villa. It’s a quarrel, but it’s a rare neighborhood in this era. There’s something wrong with them. The murder of the landlord. With everyone becoming suspects, can their relationship be beautiful to the end?

a suspense comedy that transcends genres

 

When I looked at the project, I thought it was a minor topic. The story of a small citizen living in a poor one-room villa that costs 500 and 30 won. Doesn’t it fit well with short stories or timely one-act dramas? It’s a concept like the old drama, “Moon of Seoul.” However, the difference between “murder case” was edge. In the play, the tension that constantly catches the eye is important, but the moment a murder occurs, the tension rises sharply.

The attractive point of this play is “Line” above all else. It’s a joke that’s constantly I laughed so hard the whole time because of all the ad-libs and buzzwords. It’s an amazing joke that makes you feel down when you’re serious.

Moreover, there was an unimaginable “twist” that I couldn’t help but be surprised until the end. Because of the nature of the play, it doesn’t have a detailed suspense plot like a well-organized mystery thriller. I didn’t have high expectations, but I think it was an unexpected and enjoyable stimulus because it was a good play.

a stormy event

After sitting in the theater and taking pictures, the two main actors suddenly came out. He greeted me, took a seat, and took a picture! That’s what I’m going to do. I took out my phone and started taking pictures!

Eventually, two local kids appeared and posed to lighten up the mood and take pictures. I was sitting on the left side of the audience, and he was in the complete opposite direction, so I zoomed in quickly.

They play many roles in the play. Especially the one with the yellow crown.

The role itself overwhelms the atmosphere in the play, but how natural you are! I always feel it, but the people who play are mysterious.

If you post your pictures on Instagram, you’ll get presents through a lottery. There are various other events. Before COVID-19 started, they shared tteokbokki. But I think the actors are more disappointed that they can’t do that because of the situation.

​a better play to watch together

Why is there a play in this current situation? I’m sure there were people who thought that. It was actually a performance that I was invited to watch through a blog. I applied because I wanted to see it right after my busy schedule, but I thought there was no popular play invitation from a blogger like me who is not as popular as I am, so I went alone. It’s hard to have dinner somewhere after COVID-19, right? When I was in college, I used to watch a lot of plays, and I went to see them alone, so I didn’t think it would be awkward.

It wasn’t awkward, but I think it would have been better if I watched it with someone 🙂

My prediction that it wouldn’t be a very popular piece was 70 percent off.

It’s a play that quite a lot of people will enjoy watching. The regular price of the ticket is 35000 won, but I think you can buy it cheaper on the reservation site. I think it’d be good to go watch it when you want to refresh yourself.

It’s been a while since I came out to Daehak-ro after the play, but I didn’t want to just go, so I went to a nearby cafe.

They gave me a ticket and a discount coupon for a nearby cafe, so I went there.

I came back home after controlling the aftertaste of the play with a cup of tea, wearing a mask and getting off.

Opera House Etiquette and clothing

It is basic to enter the opera house formally.

Casual clothes are okay, but most people wear dresses or suits.

There is an opera scene in 007 Quantum of Solace, and he almost wears that kind of outfit.

I watched it with my grandmothers in the same room, and they were dressed like they were in a movie.


Etiquette and clothing-

1. It’s basic to wear a suit. But since we’re tourists, let’s dress casually

2. Too light clothes such as sweatsuits, crocs, white sneakers, slippers, and shorts may be restricted from entering.

3. You can leave your clothes, so if the weather is cold, you can wear a padded jacket and leave it.(It’s a little hot indoors)

4. Let’s keep clapping after the performance. Until the actors come on stage and say hello (very long)

5. The opera claps at the end of the curtain

6. During the 근처 스크린골프장 performance, vibration is prohibited from taking pictures, so don’t turn on your cell phone because you’re curious about the time or Kakao Talk.

7. Let’s not move because there’s an empty seat in front of us.

8. Be careful not to cause noise (such as plastic bags)

– Unfortunately, there are no Korean subtitles.

There are English subtitles and Japanese subtitles.

If you reserved the concert, let’s read the plot of the concert and read the commentary.

It’s much better than just looking.

It’s good to print it out and read it before the show starts.

– You can see the performance well in an expensive place.

The second row on the second, third and fourth floors looks like more than half of the stage (the second row on the stage is not visible because of the wall) and you can see it standing up.

You have to listen to the sound and watch it with subtitles.

It’s better to see it on the 4th and 5th floors to see it cheaply.

You can buy tickets on the same day at a low price in line before the performance starts, but you have to wait about 2 hours.

After the performance, the actors come out one by one.

Half of the people on the first floor are leaving and half are giving a standing ovation.

I think we can take pictures then. Many people are taking pictures on the first floor.
