Translation: 게이와 레즈비언이 결혼한 이유는? Why Would A Lesbian Marry a Gay Man?

:
From yesterday’s links, this was the only article that I felt I could translate in a reasonable amount of time. A review on Two Weddings and a Funeral from Money Today is honestly more of a lineup than a critical review of the musical. I guess I’ll have to see it and let readers know how it is ^^ 
“Among all people, when I see you my  heart trembles.

“Among all people, when I see you my  heart trembles. This feeling that I can’t resist. This emotion I can’t hide.” 
A gay man and a lesbian have a marriage in disguise. The man’s goal is to relieve his parents while the women’s goal is to adopt a child. This wedding of course ends in divorce. It could almost be counted as a ‘marriage in order to divorce’.  After the man and woman achieve their anticipated goal, they each dream of a happy life with their real partner. 
2012’s Independent Movie ‘Two Weddings and a Funeral (TWF)’ has come to the stage as a musical play. Script-writer Chu Min-ju, (Healing Musical 빨래Closer, Our Bad Magnet) and Kim Tae-hyeong (known for his polished directing skills in the plays The History Boys and Bad Boys) worked together to create a new set of clothes for the musical play. 
After its box-office success as an independent film with more than 50,000 viewers , TWF was then made into a comic and is now transforming into a musical play. Unlike a straight musical or play, the unfamiliar sounding ‘musical play’ is fundamentally a play, but with music taking up an important role. 
In fact, on one side of the stage the keyboardist resides playing music that creates the drama’s flow; this music helps us unravel the character’s emotions throughout the important scenes of the play. 
Film director Kim Jho Gwang Su, in charged of the direction of the play. in a press call stated that “I wanted to meet an audience through a variety of genres. For an audience that was consuming material that included LGBT contents, I was happy to present it in the form of a musical play: a genre that includes both music and the stage.” Furthermore, “I hope that you can understand this as a play that shows the many types of love stories in the world rather than creating any sort of difference between same-sex and opposite-sex love.” 

Jeong Dong-hwa and Park Seong-hun are double-cast in the role of Min-su, the dutiful child who does not want to betray his parents’ expectations. The bold faced vegetable store bachelor Tina, who is in love with Min-su, is played in rotation by Oh Eui-sik and Kang Jeong-u. Cha Su-yeon and Son Ji-yun play the role of Hyo-jin, the gynecologist that wants to become a mother while Hyo-jin’s lover Seo-yeong the documentary maker is played by Lee An-na. Indispensable to the play are Kim Hyo-sook, Kim dae-jong, Lee I-rim, Yoo Sang-uk, Gu Do-gyoon and Lee Jeong-su. 
TWF, the ordinary love story of extraordinary people, will be playing until the 30th of November at DCF Daemyeong Culture Factory in Hall 2. Tickets run from 10 to 50 thousand won.
