The Meissa’s Song is a musical set in two countries, the fictional Kamur and Korea. It follows the story of the character Raman, who was born and raised in Kamur, and the process of coming to Korea in search of the Meissa. The interview began with asking L how he feels about being part of the cast for The Meissa’s Song, and he revealed that he’s discovering new sides of himself through this project!

Hello this is Kim Myung Soo. It’s an honor to be a part of such a meaningful project like Meissa’s Song. I am able to find new sides of myself that I never knew through interacting with an audience on stage as I sing and dance and act. I am having fun learning these things through my first musical.

I will work hard to the best of my ability so that I can express the message of the musical to everyone in a bright and wonderful way. Meissa’s Song, fighting!

As the musical requires L to practice rigorous routines of song and dance, the next question he was asked was,

You are probably busy practicing for the musical right now. How’s the atmosphere in the practice room?

L commented on the fun atmosphere at practice, as everyone works hard to bring this musical to life!

All the talented soldiers from each unit have gathered together so every day is fun and there are a lot of fun episodes that happen. We are spending each moment in a meaningful way as we practice for the show.

[My Meissa is] Inspirits, who always send me never-ending love, as well as everyone who continues to care and love me.

I am spending each day having fun while preparing for this musical. We are all working hard to bring a good show during this COVID-19 pandemic. We will greet you all with a great musical. Please give the show a lot of interest and love.
