Kim Jae Wook and Jo Jung Suk will be appearing on the next episode of tvN’s talk show “Life Bar”!

 

The March 1 episode of “Life Bar,” which marks Kim Jae Wook’s first variety show appearance in 10 years, will feature both actors as guests. The two actors are currently sharing the starring role in the new musical “Amadeus,” and the show gave them a chance to show off the piano skills that they had practiced in order to play Mozart.

 

Jo Jung Suk humbly remarked, “At least when it comes to the piano, Jae Wook is Mozart and I’m Salieri.” Meanwhile, Kim Jae Wook revealed that he was nervous about having to play the piano live, saying, “I’m so worried that I might make a mistake on stage, I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night these days.”

 

Jo Jung Suk, who recently starred in the MBC drama “Two Cops,” commented, “After my recent drama ended, I immediately went to the practice room for the musical without resting a single day. I thought it would be hard, but I actually enjoyed it a lot.”

 

The two actors also talked about their past experiences in sports. Jo Jung Suk shared that he had nearly become a Taekwondo athlete, while Kim Jae Wook discussed his brief foray into track and field during his school years.

 

“Life Bar” will air on March 1 at 11 p.m. KST

@RPM I just looked up the Korean articles on Naver that mentioned the name of the program. The program was on MBC, it was called "목표달성 토요일-악동클럽 (Achieve the Goal Saturday)". KJW appeared on the show on January 13, 2001. Below is a clip from that episode on Youtube. You can find KJW at the 0:08 and 17:43 mark of the video:

 

 

Also, for anyone who hasn't seen these yet, here are some new articles from KJW's appearance on Life Bar (the part about him working at a transgender bar):

@Ayame thanks for links and info.

Can you translate the little conversation between him and judges  (according to me with my very low level of korean knowledge --he asked him whether he like rock music and if he were asked to leave the rock music can he do that. But Kim jae wook replied it's difficult for him)

IF there's subbed link of life bar available someday then please let me know.

@RPM Life Bar is one of those shows that usually don't get subbed. It'll probably get Chinese subs within the next few days though. I'll let you know if it does get subbed.

 

As for the conversation, your interpretation wasn't too far off. My Korean level is only around intermediate level (definitely not near fluent at all lol), but here's how I would translate it:

 

Judge: Are you going to do only rock music?
KJW: Yes.
Judge: Do you like rock music?
KJW: Yes.
Judge: But today's audition... this isn't an individual audition, it's a group audition. Even if it were an individual audition, if you had to give up rock music, would you be able to?
KJW: ...
Judge: Could you do songs where you had to dance?
KJW: Ah... I think that would be difficult.

[Lily's Take] Jo Jung-suk and Kim Jae-wook's Hidden Talents

2018/03/04 | Permalink | Source

Actor Jo Jung-suk and Kim Jae-wook shared their hidden talents when they appeared in the talk show, "Life Bar".

"Life Bar" is a show that takes place in a "bar" where the four hosts invite two to three guests every week and share their most honest life stories over drinks and food.

On March 1stJo Jung-suk and Kim Jae-wook shared the story behind their friendship, life experiences, and surprised the viewers with their unexpected talents as they appeared in the show as guests. The two actors started the show with fancy drinking techniques, impressing the hosts.

Jo Jung-suk and Kim Jae-wook began their friendship when they met during the musical "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" 7 years ago and recently reunited in the play "Amadeus" where they are double casted as Mozart.

Kim Jae-wook shared his story about the musical "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", his effort in trying to portray the perfect transgender character by working at a transgender bar while practicing for the show and how touched he was when Jo Jung-suk threw him a surprise event on the last day of performance.

Afterward, Kim Jae-wook proceeded to share his hidden talents of playing the piano. His graceful performance awed everyone at the scene and the viewers who were watching the show late at night. Jo Jung-suk also shared that he has practiced the piano for "Amadeus" though he didn't play at all when he was first casted for the play.

Along with his piano performance, Jo Jung-suk shared his skills in Taekwondo, the Korean martial art. He shared that he has been doing Taekwondo since he was a little boy and quite skillful as he won several medals in tournaments. Before becoming an actor, his dream was to be a professional Taekwondo athlete. Kim Jae-wook also shared his athletic side of him as he mentioned that he was in track and field in school.

These two actors are already such talented actors, and now they are sharing their endless talents in music and sports. Looking at them, it is true when people say, 'birds of a feather flock together', as people of the same sort or with the same tastes and interests will be found together. It is a great friendship found in these likely actors, who are both handsome, charming, talented and full of potential!

@RPM Tagging you so you see this post, although you'll probably see this anyway since you post here frequently lol. Just thought you'd be interested in the articles.)

 

Since I know Japanese I'll be translating some Japanese articles/updates on his Japanese fanclub. Here's a translation I did of an update from his Japanese fanclub 'Luck'. The update has a message from the producer of 'Butterfly Sleep'.

 

2018.03.05 Fan Club Update: Message from the producer of ‘Butterfly Sleep’, Mr. Yamagami

 

Thank you to everyone from the fan club that attended the advanced screening of ‘Butterfly Sleep’! We have received a message from the producer of the movie, Mr. Yamagami Tetsujiro, so we posted it below.

 

(From) 'Butterfly Sleep' Producer / Yamagami Tetsujiro

 

I want to say thank you to Kim Jae Wook’s fan club for attending the advanced screening the other day. 

 

I’m sorry that I had caused some inconvenience for everyone because I was unfamiliar with the process (of the advanced screening).

 

It was my first opportunity to show my movies to people in another way aside from the mass media, so I was a bit nervous.

 

However, I was really saved by the politeness and sincere support of Kim Jae Wook’s fan club. 

 

I was impressed to find that Jae Wook’s personality could be found within his fans as well.

 

As much as he is an actor, Jae Wook is first a wonderful person. That’s what I felt as I worked together with him on set.

 

‘Butterfly Sleep’ was never meant to have a big budget. However, from now on, I have the goal of continuing producing more good-quality films, which includes Japan-South Korea collaboration films.

 

I hope that Jae Wook will appear in more movies in Japan in the near future.

 

Along with Kim Jae Wook, please support the future screenings of 'Butterfly Sleep'. Thank you for your consideration.

 

I hope to see you again in the theaters in the future.

Here's a Japanese article about the 'Amadeus' musical. I translated it to English below:

 

[ARTICLE] Kim Jae Wook participates in the press call for the musical, ‘Amadeus’ - “I’ll do my best”

 

Kim Jae Wook talks about what it was like to play the role of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 'Amadeus'

 

At the press call for ‘Amadeus’, which was held at the BBCH Hall of the Kwanglim Arts Center in Gangnam, Kim Jae Wook said, “I did appear in the 2011 musical ‘Hedwig’, but I am happy to return to performing for the first time in seven years like this.”

 

He also said, “I've always wanted to appear on stage, but this time I've found a great production (to be a part of).  I'll work hard to give a great performance until the end.”

 

As Kim Jae Wook successfully finished his first performance for ‘Amadeus’, he expressed, “I think I have to prepare a lot more on my next performance, but I’m happy this first performance went well. I’ll do my best at each performance.”

Those are the most recent articles the last couple of days. I hope my translations make sense. It's been a while since I've translated from Japanese to English, so hopefully it's not too bad lol. I'll try to find more articles to translate within the next few days. ^^

Sure no problem. ^^ I haven't really learnt that many languages. I do know Japanese up until an intermediate level I guess. I've studied Japanese for 4 years in university, so that's why I can translate now. But for Korean, I only took 1 semester of it in university, so I can read hangul and I know some basic words here and there, but I definitely am not as good in Korean as I am in Japanese lol. I can't translate any article in Korean. I know enough Korean words to look through Korean sites if I'm looking something specific (like when you were asking me about KJW's audition), but that is still pretty basic haha.
