Taemin Interview on Musical Goong
"I have comprehensive experience in acting, singing, and dancing before, so from there I began to seriously consider doing musicals, too. I also had intensive training on diction and pronunciation (for this). The part I found difficult is the analysis of the character. SHIN is a prince who wants freedom and I had to analyze how to do such character. Acting like royalty is very necessary but it was difficult to smoothly act as such at my age. In SHINee, performance is important; but in a musical, the song lyrics are important. The venue is at a small theater, which is different from when we do concerts, so I think it’s essential that my voice can be clearly and directly heard throughout."
