DJ: The Promise performed for the first time yesterday in Daegu. Are you tired?
Leeteuk: I am a bit tired but I’m okay. I had a very fun time.
DJ: How were the reactions of the audiences from Daegu?
Leeteuk: Because the musical’s setting is in war time Daegu, it became a very meaningful performance. And the audience welcomed us very well so I was very happy
DJ: Your role this time is a soft-hearted, and caring role. Is it close to your real personality?
Leeteuk: People who watched it say it is close to my personality. Because I tried to show the character my way, I think it appears to be similar
