One of our friends is going to see Dongwan in Hedwig, and we have come up with a last-minute photobook project that she can hopefully hand to him when she goes. How last-minute? Well, we have less than a week. =X It’s hopefully a simple project, but if we don’t get enough in time or if ends up that we ourselves are too busy to finish it, we will save it for a future date (perhaps his birthday combined with a larger project). Interested? Read on.

Came to support Hedwig! With #Hakwonjeon [the name of their castella cake] from Busan’s #OPS bakery. Ugly person between the self-luminous beauty of #Son Seungwon and #Kim Dongwan… #Hedwig #Sonwig #Dengwig

Dongwan got bread from the famous OPS bakery as a gift from fans too when he went to Busan for a stage greeting for his movie, “Deranged” back in 2012 (here).

The song he’s singing is Yoo Jae Ha’s “Because I Love You” (click here to listen to the original with Eng subs). The shirt he’s wearing was a fangift.

[The Musical, September 2014] “The man who is off the road, Hedwig’s Kim Dongwan”
Having returned to the judgment stage known as Hedwig, Kim Dongwan says that he has now completely fallen under the spell of the character known as Hedwig. He says that now he likes “Wig in a Box” and Tommy’s “Wicked Little Town,” more than before, that they are songs that calmly recite Hedwig’s sadness and defend this woman’s struggles.
TN: I was actually going to wait to translate this after we got better scans and also after I got through all the other 2011 interviews for Hedwig Rewind, but the interview was just too wonderful to wait. And while I didn’t plan for it to work out this way, it seems kind of appropriate to read this after I just before posted his 2011 interview from the same magazine with the same interviewer. It’s long, but in my opinion, you will come out of it with a deeper impression of Kim Dongwan.
