[NEWS] Seungri, "Xiah Junsu was awesome as Mozart" (110208)

During an Interview, Big Bang's Seungri mentioned JYJ member Xiah Junsu, causing a controversy.

Seungri, through a micro-blog "YOZM", mentioned the muscial "Mozart!" which Xiah Junsu took on, and said that the director casted him first, but after listening to the songs, he told the director that "I can't do it."

Seungri said, "It was a song that I will not be able to absorb. Since it was Xiah Junsu, he was able to break it down like that, if it had been me, I don't think "Mozart!" would have existed. Since it is a big hit, it hurts. But if I had took it on, I don't think that I will be able to receive that much attention like Xiah Junsu now."

And "When I saw the scenario of "Mozart!" I immediately had the thought that "I can't do this". It seemed that no matter how I tried, I wouldn't be able to do it. That's why I told the director "I am sorry. This does not suit me. If there is another good production next time, I will think about it again." And after that the director immediately approached Xiah Junsu."

Seungri added, "Originally it was supposed to be Jo Sung Mo. But because Jo Sung Mo Sunbaenim sustained an injury to his leg, he became unable to do it. So the director approached me. After I said that "I am unable to do it", the director immediately went to Xiah Junsu and Xiah Junsu was a complete success."

Netizens which saw Seungri's interview said "It is really rash of him to mention the real name.", "He called Jo Sung Mo Sunbaenim, but why is Xiah Junsu mentioned as "Xiah Junsu sshi"... DBSK debuted first, so he was lacking in thought right from the way he mentioned him" etc... On the other hand, some netizens defended him, "He was honest and frank.", "He didn't have pretenses."
