‘Silla’ Interview with ‘Byeol-yi Seo’ playing role in Frarang

‘Silla’ Interview with ‘Byeol-yi Seo’ Playing role in Frarang

Hi 🙂

I finally have had an interview with Frarang!

Thanks for Byeol-yi to join the interview!

1.  Please explain the character of ‘Frarang’ in one word.

As I act Frarang, one word ‘Lady’ is reminded.

A word ‘Mother’ also came up but ‘woman’ is more fit to it.

‘Woman’ literally means ‘ A woman who became an adult’.

Sometimes she is alone but finally strongly overcomes the loneliness.

Therefore, I would like to give the word ‘Lady’ to Frarang.

‘Lady’ has strong meaning.

It is an word to explain ‘to become a real adult having a wide heart to embrace everything’.

2. Which part do you have concern to describe Frarang?

I think that it is important to describe the change of Frarang through the time and her age.

I have focus on acting to show the Frarang’s growth in the whole story.

At the first scene, she is 16 years old who falls in love with Abitin and has separation with her lover.

And it takes very long time to have her baby, Feridun.

As going to the rest of part, Frarang is not presented on the scene but she have her ages as the time flows.

Therefore it is difficult to act each different ages in the short times. 

3.  I think you have difficulty to describe the emotion through the change of Frarang’s ages.

I think that it is not easy to describe one’s whole life in the short time.

The figure is changed time to time and the emotion as well.

For example, right after having love, the scene changes to separation so the emotion is needed to change very fast.

It is difficult to play controlling the emotion.

4. Which scene do you think that you could describe the emotion more if it has line or song?

If I could say in the scene, I could describe more even with the sound of breath.

For example, at Feridun’s coronation ceremony, before her son rises to the throne,

Fararang sobs as she lets her father go.

As I have monitoring to the scene, I found that I could not describe my emotion in 100%.

If I could have sound of crying, it could be better I think.

Most scenes of Frarang is almost like this.

If I could have line or song, I could explain more as it is restrained character.

5. Is there any change from the first act of Frarang?

The character of Frarang has not only dancing but also acting so I need to put the emotion in each time.

In the first period, it was awkward to describe the emotion only with dance without line
and it was very difficult but now I became free from this.

I have tried to explain the scene as a real in the formation.
It was very hard at the first but now I’m very comfortable from this.

6. Which scene do you think to be remembered by the audiences?

<Silla> is very colorful and spectacle.

But there is a scene with a deep emotion.

It is the scene of separation between Frarang and Abitine.

They try to be calm but they have huge sorrow in their heart.

Frarang dances to explain her emotion under the moon enduring sadness.

I hope the audience remember Frarang in the scene with their heart.

Backstage, The Secret Place of the Performance ‘Silla’.

Backstage, The Secret Place of the Performance ‘Silla’

I visited the backstage
to discover more about the performance ‘Silla’
Where is the secret place to make the spectacle of the show.

The first place I visited is
Department of stage on where the stage director and crews work!

They manage all props for using each scene and they direct and give order of the cue sign for each scene.

Every day, they check the stage through the rehearsal
and they keep tension for the perfect performance without any mistake!
Every day is like the premier!

However, the most important thing that the director care about is ‘Safety’.

As there are many dangerous equipment such as wires and fire papers for the colorful performance,

he put the safety at the first.

Safety if the first, the second and the third! It is really important thing!

And my next destination is…?

Department of Sound engineering in charge of the magnificent sound of ‘Silla’!

As it is an audial part,
the director control the sound volume fiting the each scene and situation
and also he make the valance of the music between the auditorium and the backstagef
in order to make the actors in the stage can hear the music well.

Director, You are ssso awesome!! >_<!!

The last one is department of light in charge of the stage color.

The department of light take the visual part.

So they make various kind of light through the movement and choreography of the dancers
and fitting the emotion and athmothphere of each scene, they describe warm or cold color throught the light.

Also there is a ‘follow light’ which follow the protagonist on the stage.

I was thinking that the light moves automatically
but in real, there is a hidden people who work hard in invisible place.

So I was really impressed about it 🙂

How was the backstage tour with me?

Through the discovery of the backstage where people hard work for the colorful stage,
I have gotten more attraction for the performance~!

On Thursday, April. 27, 7:30 pm (Korean time) !

You can see this wonderful performance through the live broadcast on Naver TV!
