2AM’s Jo Kwon and B1A4′s CNU Want to Break the​ Idol Mold Through New Musical “Chess”

In the June issue of the magazine Singles, 2AM‘s Jo Kwon and B1A4‘s CNU are featured in a dark and haunting photo shoot and also answer questions about their upcoming musical “Chess.”

“Chess” is an internationally renowned musical that first premiered back in 1984. It is set during the Cold War, when a Soviet grandmaster chess player, Anatoly Sergievsky, challenges the current world chess champion, an American grandmaster named Freddie Trumper. The two end up fighting over a strong-willed woman, Florence Vassy, who is Freddie’s manager.

As with most Korean musicals, several actors will be alternating in each role.The role of Anatoly will be played by Jo Kwon, CNU, SHINee‘s Key, and VIXX‘s Ken. Freddie will be played by Shin Sung Woo and Lee Gun Myung. Actresses Ahn Shi Ha and Lee Jung Hwa will be taking the role of Florence.

In the interview with Singles, Jo Kwon and CNU were asked if they ever get competitive over the fact that they’re sharing the lead role.

“We don’t have the luxury of using up emotion on that kind of thing,” replies Jo Kwon. “We’re rehearsing all week for more than five or six hours. Right now the only thing I think about is ‘Chess.’”

When asked about his goals as a musical actor and not an idol, musical rookie CNU replies, “First of all, I think I have to do a great job starting with my first work. My name means ‘trustworthy friend.’ I want to live up to my name so that people will go see my work because they trust me.”

“I’m the same,” answers Jo Kwon. “I always want to break the mold. I started doing musicals because I wanted to break away from my image as an idol. The first generation of idols-turned-musical-actors, like Ock Joo Hyun and JYP‘s Junsu, have a lot of box office power but they also get great reviews because of their talent. As someone in the second generation, I have even more ambition about musicals.”

Singles magazine also posted a photo on their Instagram of the two as they played chess behind the scenes on their shoot.

The musical “Chess” will open in Seoul on June 19.

SISTAR, Jo Kwon, Ken, & CNU pose for 'High Cut' and talk abou​t dating & current relationship status

'High Cut' dropped pictures from its 150th issue on May 21, but if you haven't purchased yourself a copy yet, the magazine also uploaded pictures onto SNS and through media outlets for all to enjoy!  You can still ogle the attractive models that graced this issue, including SISTAR, Jo Kwon, B1A4's CNU, and VIXX's Ken.

The SISTAR members turned into complete beach babes for this shoot, showing off their fit bodies and voluminous curves.  The boys go for a bit more mellow, less fun yet still charming concept as they lounge in comfortable casual wear.

Regarding the girls' shoot, 'High Cut' said, "SISTAR, who say that they always enjoy water sports, enjoyed beach volleyball and surfing in Hawaii, where the sun beats down on them, for a fun and refreshing time."

The boys talked a lot in their interview portions with Jo Kwon talking about the fact that his name always gets mentioned in articles about Ga In's boyfriend, actor Joo Ji Hoon. He said, "Nothing concerns me.  Words like 'He's taller than Jo Kwon, he's superior' frustrate me.  Of course as a joke."  He had also confessed recently on TV that there was a 'some-girl' in his life.  He said, "I am 27 right now, and it makes no sense if I am still a solo.  Even in the past, I had somebody whom I was in a 'some' stage with.  Even now I have somebody whom I am meeting with good feelings."

In the meantime, B1A4's Baro had his first dating scandal with his co-star, Kim Yoo Jung, not too long ago.  Regarding this, CNU said, "Yoo Jung is a 17-year-old child, so I don't now what people were thinking.  She's a young student, so how could you view it like that? I was also watching the game through a live broadcast.  I thought, 'Oh they just went to watch soccer,' but the article came out as a dating rumor."

Meanwhile, Ken still was not involved in any scandal.  When asked if he was dating or not, he said, "Idols don't date," making everyone laugh.  He continued, "I learned how to act the part of someone in love through monitoring [others].  People tease, don't they, saying, 'Did you learn from books?'  It was really like that.  I dated before I debuted.  We broke up when I entered the company."
