Lately in Korea one of the hottest performances loved by those who enjoy a cultural life is ‘musical’. So The Inha Times interviewed club BOM(봄).
The Inha Times(IT) : Give us a short introduction of BOM. What is the main activity and how do you guys do it?
BOM : BOM is the one and only musical theater troupe in Inha University. Since all our members gather for performance in real, we usually practice singing and acting. When the performance schedule is set, we prepare a musical with all members or we also do a gala show after practicing solo songs.
IT: How could BOM be organized?
BOM : BOM was organized in 2014 and around that time in our university there were so many acting clubs and singing clubs but there was no musical club which combines singing and acting. So one of our seniors(a class of 13) and his friends with a lot of interest about musical organized BOM to let students experience and try musical easily, a genre which can be a bit unfamiliar to a lot of them.
IT: What difficulties does BOM have in preparing a musical and how does BOM get over the difficulties?
BOM : Since it requires dance, singing and acting at the same time to prepare a one musical, we need to devote a lot of time to it. So we are doing our best to get familiar with all of the members to practice for that long time in a good mood. Also since we use MR in theater we need to borrow external equipment quite often which requires a lot of money too.
IT: Have you ever done a creative musical? If so tell us about it and if not how do you think of doing it?
BOM : We’ve never done a creative musical yet. But if one club can write the lyrics, compose songs, record the songs and write a script by itself it would be the best! I hope a lot of talented and passionate students to join BOM so that we can do a creative musical together someday.
IT: What is the attractive point of BOM among various clubs in Inha University?
BOM : As I mentioned BOM is the one and only musical club in Inha University! So in our performances, you can laugh or be moved enjoying singing, dancing and acting together on the same stage.
IT: What is the most impressive performance that BOM did? Give us a brief introduction of it.
BOM : Actually we haven’t done a lot of performances since BOM was organized only a few years ago. But if I need to choose one among what we’ve done I’d choose the first performance that we did on January 2015. It was a gala show with solo songs that every member prepared by him/herself. It was very meaningful because it was the first performance of BOM with all founding members.
IT: Tell us what you want to say to Inha University students.
BOM : Do you think a musical is still far from you? You don’t need to think it’s too hard. All the members of BOM are the same students like you. We just work hard by practice for it as well. Musical is a genre much better than your expectation. Don’t hesitate to watch and even try a musical! The door of BOM is always open for you :D
