Singer-musical actor Junsu of K-pop group JYJ was voted the best male musical actor of 2014, CJeS Entertainment said Wednesday.

Junsu received more than 50 percent of votes in the poll conducted by magazine The Musical, the entertainment firm said.

He performed in the musical “Dracula,” displaying his overwhelming charisma. The musical ran at Seoul Arts Center from July to September.

Apparently thanks to Junsu’s popularity, tickets for the musical were sold out before it opened.

“Kim is the best-selling artist in this field. As he showed previously when he played Todd in ‘Elizabeth,’ he proved his talent in expressing a non-human fantasy character again, excellently. His unique and sweet voice made the character more mysterious and desperate. He did not forget to vividly visualize Dracula’s appearance either,” a musical industry expert said.

The singer will hold his year-end solo concert “2014 XIA Ballad & Musical Concert with Orchestra Vol. 3” in Seoul on Dec. 30-31.
