In addition, I hope the new year will be so happy for the whole World.
Personally, I wish I will be healthy and be able to spend a calm daily life.
Also, I will be happy if I can listen many Mr. CHO SEUNG WOO's singings in the new year.

South Korean TV Drama "The King's Doctor (Horse Doctor)" OST

Regarding this drama;
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King%27s_Doctor

Recently in Japan, this drama has been repeated to be broadcasted in Japanese several TV channels.
Almost every day, we can see this drama in our TV.
So, I have recollected this OST which I bought several years ago.
This is a Japanese version OST, and we can listen opening parts of all pieces in this site.
I like these very beautiful music. Also, this OST has a very good reputation in Japan.
However, unfortunately, there are no Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's singing and no his pictures on the jacket....

Here are some main pieces in this OST. (I have found the audio sources.)










Three of them, a Japanese singer covered. Here is a motion picture.



I enjoy both the drama and music very much again recently.

By the way,…

Congratulations on Winning a Popularity Award, Mr. Cho Seung-Woo!!

I saw the 5th Yegreem Musical Award through the live broadcasting.
(It is a South Korean Musical Award.)

Mr. Cho Seung-Woo has won a Popularity Award, it seems to be elected by internet voting. Congratulations!!!
However, unfortunately, there was no live performance of "Werther".
Also, I wish all his musicals had been broadcasted live in such way.....

He talked much during both a presenter and an Award winner, but unfortunately I was not able to understand his words....
However, I am very happy to see him live. He seems to be very healthy, and I like his current hair style.

When a lady regarding "Sweeney Todd" won some Award and got down from the stage, he moved to the step from the stage and outstretched his hand to help her. I think such his character is a reason why I am a fan of him!

His Award history was revised on his Wikipedia.

After live broadcasting, I was able to read the news about this Award in Japanese.

After I got the imformation that Mr. Cho Seung-Woo would appear on this stage, I watched this musical movie.
There are many wonderful and beautiful songs like "Jekyll & Hyde", and I think they are difficult to be sung...

In these motion pictures, Ms. Ok Joo Hyun as the master of a pie shop is outstanding.
I have seen her first in musical.
I have found her singing motion picture. (She sings a song from the musical: Rebecca)

< Casts >
Jekyll & Hyde: Mr. Kanji Ishimaru
Lucy: Megumi Hamada
Emma: Rena Sasamoto

I saw the musical; Jekyll & Hyde for the first time by the South Korean version, and I become to like this musical.
I enjoyed same things and differences between the South Korean version I saw and this Japanese version on the day.

* South Korean version I saw:

I had seen some motion pictures of this Japanese version in advance. At that time, I had thought the Korean version would be superior to the Japanese version in various aspects, but after I saw this stage, I found the Japanese version is also splendid.
Main casts were splendid of course, and singing, performance, and dancing of casts for ensemble were also splendid!!

I saw Ms. Me…

CD: South Korean Muisical: HEDWIG New Make-up (Mr. Cho Seung-Woo Version)

I am very happy to have this CD, because this seems to be live recording, so I can imagine actual stages well!
There are two CDs. In the second CD, several pieces from the first CD were recorded in different arrangements and rhythms, so we can happily taste two types of one song.

I have the CD of 2013 version, too.
(Here is a motion picture at recording.)
I think singing of Mr. Cho Seung-Woo has become better and been more polished than the 2013 version CD.
Further, this version is live recording! His live singing seems to be so good!!
Also, Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's rock singing is very rhythmical and beautiful, not just noisy, so we can listen them very comfortably.

Same as the 2013 version CD, I like "Wig in a Box" best in this CD. It is very beautiful piece!
I think I will become fond of all HEDWIG musical songs through these CDs.

Pictures of the jacket inform me of the scenes of stages.
Here is a motion picture which shows his new make-up and styles.

Recently I am ver…

CD: South Korean Original Musical "Werther" 15th Anniversary

(*This article had been late owing to my schedule; music and English tests....
As I wrote in the article, I have written this at last!)

----------------------------------------
* Revised on Feb. 21, 2017

Luckily, I was able to get this Original Sound Track in the begining of this year.
I was not able to go to Seoul to see this musical, so this CD is so precious for me.

This OST set consists of 3 CDs. Three "Werthers" sings in each CD.

This is a South Korean original musical, so the music differs totally from the opera "Werther" composed by Massenet.

*There are some opera "Werther" motion pictures here.

The music of his South Korean original musical "Werther" is also very beautiful. Singings of actors and actresses and the orchestra playing of chamber music are also very wonderful, so I like this CD so much.
It includes various types of music and all of them are wonderful!!

Here is a motion picture of t…
