Interview With Choi Soo-jin
In an interview with a magazine, when being asked about how she felt about her major role from the first work, she answered that it’s actually the biggest burden. “In the musical The Wizard of Oz, I played the role of Glinda, a good witch, and I had a chance to participate as an ensemble. I’m here for an ensemble scene where my role doesn’t play. I was worried that I might not have as much endurance as the actors who have experienced an ensemble. I was able to experience both the role and the ensemble while appearing in the scene where I danced and acted together. I was really grateful to have such an experience. I worked really hard then.”
She wanted to do a musical titled Jekyll and Hyde. She said that she wants to play a role that she doesn’t think she can do well. “Many actors look for roles that they can play well with. There are a lot of people who are good at it, so it’s right to play the role according to their preferences. But I want to play a role that I am not good at. When I say I want to do a musical, Jekyll and Hyde, everyone thinks of Emma. But the role I want to play is Lucy. I really like the songs that Lucy sings. I also want to do a small theater piece. Especially, the musical Finding Mr. Destiny. At first, I couldn’t relate to the female character, but the more I know, the more attractive it is. She has a lot to analyze.”
Musical life means a lot to Choi Soo-jin. She said that all her life is tuned toward musicals. In real life, she appears as an actor only when she is immersed in the role. That’s why she tries to live in order to be good at acting, and try to get musical roles. “I try to generate energy. There are some actors who are calm and explode on stage, but I can’t do it well. I think of Choi Soo-jin on stage every day.”
