[TWITTER-TRANS] Junsu & “Elizabeth” convos ~~
(Joo Hyun, 11:32am KST, 120214, RTed by Junsu) When you watch “Elisabeth”, you begin to feel sorry for Joseph………ㅠㅠ
When I went to Vienna not long ago- the room in which Joseph used to work was quite memorable. The room was full of portraits of Sissi and there was even a portrait of her on his desk. They say that the emperor, who was always busy because of all~ the duties he had to complete for everyone, would solace himself with the portrait of his loving wife..
Ah… It’s so sweet..ㅠㅠ
So my heart aches when I hear the lyrics that Joseph sings in the last scene of the first act.. “I can’t survive withohout your love.. I’ll do everything you want me to, just the way you want it.. Though emotions are forbidden for emperors, I will give it all up. I don’t need all the responsibilities that I have. I will betray myself~”
Just because someone’s the emperor, doesn’t mean he can have everything he wants or give up when he feels like it…
That’s what breaks my heart..ㅠ-ㅠ
Here’s another interesting story that you might like to hear, that I heard when I was in Vienna..
In the secret room that really existed (The room that comes up in the ultimatum of the first act is that secret room. In that scene, poor Joseph knocks on the door after washing up and wearing a pretty gown to spend an intimate night with his wife ㅠㅠ), Sissi spent a lot of time hiding there, teaching herself Hungarian (There are lyrics in the cafe scene of the first act that talks about this, right?! “Sissi chatters in Hungarian~ And that makes Sophie mad~”) and they say that she wrote many poems about ‘death’ when she was so lonely and worn out. Could it be that to her, the scary world of death seemed to be vaguely full of freedom…
Sissi, who spent her life in despair and hopelessness because she couldn’t handle anything with her own strength, realized that ‘beauty’ could become an influence, even in politics, and began to invest time into taking care of her looks.. (The reason why Sissi, who vows to get what she wants by her own means, begins to embellish herself in the scene that follows the conflict with death after the ultimatum) Sophie believed that her daughter-in-law was finally doing something right by working hard to attain the image befitting the empire but Sissi, who decided that she had to be stronger than Sophie, was one step ahead of her.. And those who wished to go against the Hapsburg’s rule began to support Sissi more than her mother-in-law…
Did you enjoy that?^^
I’ll post more later…^^
(Joo Hyun, 12:18pm KST, 120214, RTed by Junsu) Has any woman ever imagined what it would be like to be infected with her husband’s venereal disease?
No one would, not even as a passing, vague thought. Because they would feel the worst urges possible if that ever happened…
Not only does Sissi get her son, her own flesh and blood, taken away from her by her overpowering mother-in-law, who is even called ‘the last man in the palace’, but even Joseph, the sole person Sissi felt she could trust as she was grappling with straws to keep her life going,, even Joseph went and had a physical relationship with a woman who had a venereal disease. How could he live wholly after finding out… The venereal disease scene makes my blood boil so much, it’s so degrading and disgusting that it makes me want to throw up..
Sob ㅠㅠ Joseph~ Why did you do that
(Moon Jung, 11:07am KST, 120214) @1215thexiahtic All I did was state the truth!! haha But I think you’re going to have to come up with an explanation?? About the Un… n..?? haha I found your lonely SsiSsi Duck in my room.. Take him.. keke
(Junsu, 1:10pm KST) @mjkim8200 SsiSsi Duck…??????? Oh, oh, oh lol
(Joo Hyun, 1:20pm KST, 120214, RTed by Junsu) There are quite a lot of parts in our musical that come directly from records that have been left from that time period, and I’m about to give you the behind-the-scenes story of one of them.^^
At the emperor’s summer home, when Joseph falls for Sissi and the two begin their rose-colored romance, a family member asks Sissi, “Do you love Joseph?” to which she wittily replies, “I truly love him so much. But if only he wasn’t an emperor.”
Do you remember the part where Sissi sings -If only you weren’t an emperor, we would be happy”- as he enters her room after the wedding~?!
This is the behind-the-scenes story of that part^^
Ah,, I’m having too much fun with this ㅠㅠ
(Joo Hyun, 1:44pm KST, 120214, RTed by Junsu) I feel good because people like these~ hehe^^
Then I’ll write up one more before I have to go to the theater!!
You all know that in the Five Blessings, ‘children’ is not included but ‘dental health’ is, right?
That must have been the case for the Hapsburg empire~ The mother-in-law invades Joseph and Sissi’s bedroom and chastises them on not working hard to have a baby, and then says to Sissi, “Show me your teeth~”.. What are teeth to humans ㅠㅠ
We can’t even find an image of Sissi’s “teeth” in her many portraits.
They say that we can’t find a single portrait of Sissi showing her teeth as she smiles because she had crooked teeth, the only flaw that the beautiful woman possessed…
I’m going to stop here…
Have a great Tuesday everyone~ And please show your warm support for Su Yong Lucheni (@nicedragon0314) as it’s his first performance today~^^
(Young Ki, 1:29pm KST, 120214) Ha-ak!!!!! It’s seriously contagious!!!! I’ll ask Junsu for its meaning tomorrow!!! hahahahahaha Ha-ak Ha-ak!!!!!!
(Junsu, 1:57pm KST, 120214) @poimin73 Ha-ak!
(Joo Hyun, 12:59am KST, 120216, RTed by Junsu) Pleaseㅠㅠ @yapssal One of the staff members of Elisabeth is going through rough times as their child was diagnosed with leukemia. Please help us so that “death” cannot approach this young soul. Please bring a blood donor card and donate it to her at the ticket booth when you come to see the show. Please RT this tweet as well.
(Junsu, 2:43am KST, 120216) Goodnight..~
(Junsu, 2:58am KST, 120216)
(Junsu, 3:41am KST, 120216) Why did Elisabeth… yearn for death..? Did she believe that death would heal everything..?
(Junsu, 3:42am KST, 120216) Or… that death would bring her peace and rest…..?
(Junsu, 3:44am KST, 120216) They say that back then… ending one’s life by one’s hands.. was thought to be somewhat holy and a splendid way to die… Not only for Elisabeth.. but for Rudolph as well…
(Junsu, 3:45am KST, 120216) Nevertheless, suicide is a sin that cannot be erased…!
(Junsu, 3:48am KST, 120216) Everyone, no matter what happens, don’t give up and.. be strong! They say that no one is given hardships that they can’t endure…. ^^
(Junsu, 3:53am KST, 120216) Though I feel bad for Elisabeth…. I pity.. Rudolph more… The scene in which Rudolph begs his mother for help…. Mom, can you hear me?….. This line… always makes me cry..
(Junsu, 3:58am KST, 120216) I wish I was my mother’s mirror.. Because then she’d look at me and talk to me……
(Junsu, 4:00am KST, 120216) These lyrics… A tear always runs down my face while I look upon the Mayerling Incident next to them… I always get told off her wiping my tears away as I leave… Because I’m supposed to be death…….
(Junsu, 4:12am KST, 120216) Because death is alone… couldn’t it be that he was just trying to create a companion who would stay by his side…? Though he’s omniscient and omnipotent.. He’s still alone…… Because… he couldn’t overcome the loneliness…
(Junsu, 4:22am KST, 120216) Come to me now, my lady whom I’ve been waiting for, for so long.. After craving for her for so long, he finally takes Elisabeth to her death… But he loses her once more through that death… Though they become one, it is a love that can’t be reached once more… A lonely death
(Junsu, 4:28am KST, 120216) I feel pity for… all the characters in Elisabeth
(Su Yong, 12:05pm KST, 120216) @1215thexiahtic Even Lucheni..??^^;;;
(Junsu, 2:53pm KST, 120216) @nicedragon0314 Ha-ak!
(Junsu, 2:57pm KST, 120216) @nicedragon0314 Hyung, are you performing today??
