On February 19th, Seohyun completed her final performance as Yeonwoo in the musical, “Moon That Embraces the Sun”. After the January 20th press call and her first public show on January 21st, Seohyun was able to successfully and skillfully portray her character over the span of a month. Along the way, she received tremendous support from friends and family, SONEs, and her fellow members. Hyoyeon was in the audience for Seohyun’s final performance. During the final curtain call, her cast mates encouraged Seohyun to give a speech to the audience, commemorating her role in the musical. After introducing herself as Seo Yeonwoo, Seohyun went on to say that it was her first musical and though there were many flaws, she made memories that she would never forget because she was with great people. She finished off by saying that she will work hard to be a better musical actress. Seohyun then gave a big heart in response to the applause, bowed to the audience, and gave one last wave, peeking through the final curtain before it fell.

Afterwards, fans prepared a celebratory event for Seohyun with cake, gifts, and banners reading, “Seo Yeonwoo, you’re the only one”. SONEs cheered enthusiastically and congratulated her for a successful debut as a musical actress.

Standing in front of all her fans, Seohyun fielded a few questions including, “Did it hurt when you fell in the musical?” and “What did you worry most about the musical?” Seohyun answered, “It didn’t, but there was a bruise when I took off my clothes at the end of the day,” and, “There isn’t a thing that I didn’t worry about.” Seohyun also briefly gave a short speech, saying, “I have wanted to do a musical for so long, but I thought I was not prepared for it, and I still think that I’m not perfectly prepared. However, I wanted to try and work hard for it so I started later than other people. I always studied for it watching the unnies perform, and I’m so happy that I got to live my dream with you guys cheering me on and giving me strength! It feels like every single one of you is on my side and it really makes me happy. I will show you a better musical actress in the future. I will make a promise right here. I will become a great musical actress. I will answer to your love. I love you!” She was happily moved by the support, again bowing, waving to all her fans, and giving one last big heart before having to leave.

Earlier today, Seohyun tweeted a few pictures of her precious memories from the musical, including Hyoyeon’s visit on the final performance, while also saying, “I just finished the last stage of my first musical ‘Moon That Embraces the Sun’! Thanks to everyone who made unforgettable memories while helping me and cheering me on. I love you~! To everyone who loved Seo Yeonwoo! I sincerely thank you ^^”.
