JYJ member Junsu has announced the conclusion of his performance in the hit musical ‘Dracula’. Junsu expressed how he felt about finishing the project, tweeting on September 4, "Finally... It's the day I have to let you go. He's longed for you for 400 years, so why is he leaving like a dummy... He should never let go. I'll let you go today my precious... I'll miss you terribly, Dracula." He also posted the below image of himself playing Dracula and his love interest Mina Murray.
Junsu played Dracula from July 15 to September 4 at the Seoul Art Center Opera House. Junsu is a South Korean singer-songwriter, dancer, and stage actor. He is a member of the Korean pop group JYJ, and was one of the original members of boy band TVXQ.
Kim made his debut in 2003 as a member of TVXQ, a boy band produced and formed by South Korean record label and talent agency S.M. Entertainment, having previously been a trainee for six years. He had released four Korean albums, four Japanese albums, thirty Japanese singles and several Korean singles during his first six years in the music industry as TVXQ.
In 2009, Kim and fellow TVXQ members Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment, arguing that their exclusive contracts were unilaterally disadvantageous towards the artists and should be invalidated. The Seoul Central District Court ruled in favor of the three and granted an injunction suspending their contracts. The trio reunited and subsequently formed JYJ (formerly known asJUNSU/JAEJOONG/YOOCHUN in Japan).
