SNSD and ‘Mama Mia’ actress released her interview with “The Move” on the 10th of April 2016.
The interview is about Seohyun, who wrote a diary and sang while running on a treadmill, her passion and hard work.
‘Mamma Mia’s Sophie, who has become famous to the public with the movie of the same name with leading actress Amanda Seyfried, who is definitely a bold lady. SNSD’s Seohyun is playing the role of Sophie, who has the bold and determined idea to invite three men who could very likely be her biological father to her wedding, behind her mother’s back .
Seohyun, who usually has a calm and modest image, has broken free from the image of classical dramas and is acting the character of a bold lady. But this casting selection was not because of the fact that she is part of world famous K-Pop girl group, SNSD.
Even though she is one actress in a role that was triple cast, she is an idol actress who still beat out a competition of 350:1 and won the audition.
A reason Seohyun was cast through the audition was because of her ‘passion’, where she made a diary belonging to the mom role, Donna by herself, and practiced.
On the question about Seohyun bringing Donna’s diary to the audtion, Seohyun replied,
“I had already liked <Mamma Mia!>, and I had the opportunity to audition. More than thinking about getting the role, I really liked that I was participating in the audition. But I didn’t want to do just an audition. The story in the musical starts with mom Donna’s diary.
At first I wrote a diary on a scratch pad. But then I was overcome with the curiosity of ‘What would Donna’s diary look like?’. I ended up making it imagining ‘If this was really mom’s diary, how would I read it?”
Seohyun shared the advice she got from Ock Juhyun,.”Juhyun unnie once told me, ‘Even if you do hundreds, or thousands of performances, there is always an audience member who is watching a musical for the first time. For those people, you need to work hard at every performance as if it’s your very first’ and now that I’ve been on the musical stage, I can relate to these words hundred times more.”
During ‘Moon Embracing the Sun,’ Super Junior’s Kyuhyun was interviewed. Back then, Kyuhyun said that when you compare his musical debut to Seohyun’s musical debut, that Seohyun is much better and Seohyun responded very modestly, “I’m so thankful. When I hear this, I feel a lot of responsibility. (Laughs) I think Kyuhyun oppa is so much better than me so the fact that he thinks that makes me want to do even better than I’m currently doing.”
Seohyun has different sides and she shared this by telling about the ‘Mamma Mia’ cast experiencing those sides, “If I become close with someone who didn’t know me well, there are times when they are surprised thinking ‘You had this side in you?’. On broadcasts, I don’t talk a lot and I have a quiet image. (Kim) Geumna unnie, who is triple cast as one of the Sophie’s, told me a lot that, ‘I thought you were quiet but you have a bizarre charm? I think it will be good for people to know this side of you’. Backstage, if mom Donna is reciting her lines, I (playfully) impersonate Sam’s lines.”
I am so proud of Seohyun! She is very modest and hard working and her character is not from your typical idol.
