‘Family Forever?’
SBS ‘Good Sunday – Family Outing ‘ (‘FO’) is going to keep Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Hyori, Yoon Jong Shin, etc after fall reorganization season.

‘FO’ Jang Hyuk Jae PD answered, “None of current members will be out this coming up season” to a question about if the current members will be changed after fall reorganization which is coming up end of October. Right now ‘FO’ has a ‘family’ made by fixed members of Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Hyori, Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Soo Ro, Park Ye Jin, Lee Chun Hee, and Daesung from Big Bang.

Jang PD said, “current members has a great teamwork and they are perfect to receive love from different age group.” Member’s age group are: Yoon Jong Shin in 40s, Kim Soo Ro, Yoo Jae Suk, Lee Chun Hee, Lee Hyori in 30s, Park Ye Jin and Daesung in 20s.

‘FO’ won’t touch on current members, who helped the show to reach ‘Best Variety (Show),’ and plan to have guests every week like Rain and Kim Jong Gook to add fun.

Jang PD answered related to standard to pick guests that “I am not putting guests because they are idols or to create an issue. Anyone can be part of ‘family’ if their schedule matches and all.”

Meanwhile, ‘FO’ received 23.6% on 19th and 27.5% on 26th on ratings. As they renew their own rating every week, ‘FO’ made a record of getting 1st place out of variety programs.

An hour and half for to give birth to a cat?

What am I talking about? It’s about a time to change a performer of ‘Cats’ from a regular person to a cat on a stage.

A makeup process for ‘Cats’ was finally released after it was thoroughly hidden in a veil. ‘Cats,’ one of 4 best musicals in the world that has over 20 years of history, has been avoiding exposing backstage because they wanted audiences to feel and recognize performers as cats. But after long persuasion, RUG (Really Useful Group, Original Production of ‘Cats’, United Kingdom) introduced a secretive process to Joong Ang Il Bo (The Korean Daily). To be honest, I thought myself ‘Why are they being so complicated? Isn’t it just putting make up and wear costumes?’ But they had their own know-how and experience, and a strict philosophy on participating in the performance.
