The eyes and expression seen for the first time from the attentive grabbing performance guided by the sound of provocative whistle, Jang Hyunseung is moving rhythmically. Also, it’s noticed for the first time. It’s definitely the man that’s exuding attraction force and the ‘twist’ on stage, it’s Jang Hyunseung’s charm. All these while, the confidence which wasn’t shown previously had dramatically unfold through the unit promotion and thereafter, he is shining even more vibrantly.
"The greatest gain from the outcome of the unit promotion wasn’t being number 1 on music programmes nor the rise of recognition. It was about me experimenting on my own and being able to bring it forward in it’s entirety. Definitely the music, along with the performance, acting, image, all of them are harsh at my ‘eye-level’. In order to showcase a stage of my own, I continued to ascertain, fix and prepare myself. Actually, I became extremely sensitive when it comes to work. Being a perfectionist, I often lashed out at myself. Because of that, whenever I receive lots of stress, my body becomes worn out. While on the other hand, I think that I’m transforming my sensitiveness into driving force and advancing forward. When the tough times become too much to handle, I’ll meet with my loved ones, eat delicious food and chat a lot. Nothing special but I’ll spend some quiet time alone too. Having a rest like that, I’ll toughen up and jump back into work again. Lately, we frequently talk among ourselves regarding our direction. Truthfully for me, even though we might need to have ground breaking strategy for any opportunity, I think it’s unconditional that it will do as long as the music itself is good. Even if I’m called inflexible and single-minded, I can’t be helped. In the first place, I don’t like to go back on things regardless of what it is. A powerful fast ball, I think that’s the best and with that, we need to be more ‘beast’ like."

HYUNSEUNG - MOZART - 22072012
Why can’t you love me
Leopold, Mozart father came to Vienna to see his son - Wolfgang, who had become immensely famous. There Leopold felt that he’s no longer needed, Wolfgang and his father had an argument - about how much Wolfgang had owed his family - like the death of his mother. Wolfgang tried to give his father money so he could quit the Salzburg archbishop but Leopold, very proud, refused and left broken hearted. This conflict with his father left Wolfgang devastated - hence the song ‘Why can’t you love me’ - leading to his eventual breakdown and death.
Hyunseung’s performance today was so much better than on 19th. He got longer standing ovation. He was so much more confident, basically owned the stage.
This is a long version, I include the altercation between Mozart and his father so you can feel Hyunseung’s acting through the dialogues. Listen to his calling ‘father..father’ I find it heartbreaking.
I just want to share this to fellow B2UTIES who couldn’t attend the performance. Hyunseung works really hard and improves tremendously. As the youngest actor to portray Mozart and in only 3 years after debut, he has given justice to the name Beast and also Beauties.
