Daniel Choi in rehearsals for The Musical

Daniel Choi, who is hard at work preparing for his upcoming drama The Musical, released these photos of him via his Twitter account, which show him practicing his piano-playing skills.

As Choi had never learned to play, the producers offered to find him a double for scenes requiring his character to perform, but Choi insisted upon learning in order to play those scenes himself. That means he has been learning in his spare time, in between filming scenes for the series. One producer explained that he bought a piano without telling them, in order to keep up his practicing every day.

The drama plot unfolds as various people are brought together in their dreams of creating a top musical, which includes our talented songwriter (Choi), a medical student with aspirations of being a musical actress (lead actress Gu Hye-sun), a cool-headed producer (Park Ki-woong), and a diva stage actress (Ok Joo-hyun).

Choi is pictured in these stills looking casual as he is seated at the piano. All I can say is, it’s a heckuva lot better than whatever in jeeves Gu Hye-sun is doing in the following behind-the-scenes shots. I’m sort of used to Gu showing up in wacky outfits, but this one takes the cake. Even if the costume is for a drama and obviously not a personal choice.

(Apparently the photos come from a scene where Gu’s character is told by a friend that musical actors have to have guts in front of the public, and that “all musical actors in New York do this.” LOL. Is she gutsy, or dumb? The scene was shot with some secrecy, but as it was outdoors in public — in Korea’s theater district, Daehakro — sharp-eyed bystanders were able to recognize her.)

Gu Hye-sun the actress is gutsy(for wearing that ridiculous outfit in front of all those bystanders), her character though? probably dumb :P haha but this seems interesting.

It's lunch break at the office and fortunately all my co-workers had already left, cuz I laughed so loud at this. ^^

Yep, awkward. Plus except for her singing and playing the piano for Gu Jun Pyo's birthday (awesome, imo) in BOF, her Geum Jan Di really convinced me that, like fellow Kim Hyun Joong, she should consider taking acting classes. Who cast them in the first place anyway?

Speaking of piano, DC reminds me of Hyun Bin and Kim Myung Min learning how to play this instrument - in "MNIKSS" and "Bad family". Sweet memories.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! It's Sailor Moon cosplay!!

This is bringing all sorts of memories for me. It was actually the live-action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon that got me into Asian dramas to begin with. (Well, that and Hana Kimi.) Even though I never really watch the cartoon, a friend told me to check out an episode or two on YouTube, because it defied description... and down the rabbit hole I went.

Sailor Moon life action was total crack! :D

There was a musical as well, which was not bad. Maybe that's what they are trying to do there?

Oh that's funny! You used the exact same description as my friend and I. PGSM was total crack!! I couldn't stop watching! These photos remind me how far I've come.

LOL I forgot about the musical! Nice connection! Though I bet they were just coming up with the craziest outfit they could.

Daniel choi looks awesome!

omg, I hope GHS's character isn't dumb! Please let her play a strong, driven character! My mom is watching BOF right now- my brother and i have been peeking in. I think it is more bearable when you have someone to make fun of it with while watching it.

Anyways, the sailor moon costume really brings back memories. I love sailor moon!

Seriously? I find it hard to believe that a person who can become a medical student can actually think that wearing a sailor moon suit will lead her to success as a musical actress.

Learning to play the piano is not easy. Kudos to him. I guess one has to watch the drama to find out what the sailor moon outfit is about. I must say GHS has never shy from a challenge . It seem interesting and different from the usual . When and which TV station is going to air it?

Whew...an actress that isn't over concerned with her image is a good thing...on the other hand Miyu Sawai might have an issue with her debut role being made fun of LOL

Yes, I watched PGSM. I also watched Sailor Moon anime back when you paid $200 to have all the fansubs put on vhs tapes and sent to you by VKLL since all the seasons weren't available in the States in the 90's. Did the same thing with DragonBall Z tapes in the 90s too...how far fansubbing has come.

But I digress...cosplay away Go Hye Sun...cosplay away

DC... finally... manly hotness...

Not that I'm bothered with pretty young men - they are good as eye candy.
But I prefer this kind of hotness.

GHS... no comment *lol*

Please let GHS's character be a strong character. I am so sick and tired of her playing Jandi type roles. But based from the stills, I kinda doubt it.

oh dear! I spot Sailor Moon!! hahaha... i must say that the pop culture... back in the early 90's hahaha, I have since then left much of that behind and have gone on to dramas and hot boys and men like Daniel Choi ^^ I can honestly say that piano is not easily mastered since I have been playing for over 16 years and still haven't mastered it. I however will cheer Choi on in his efforts!

All this makes me think is that she's "fighting evil by moonlight and winning love by daylight"~

I am not embarrassed that I actually know the Sailor Moon opening song.
