Swans are excited to wear ‘The Nutcracker’ stage costume! [The Swan Club/2018.01.24]


(A few days later on a cold winter day) – Hello. / – Hi! – Hello. / – Gosh. – I love what you’re wearing. / – You look passionate. I thought you were someone else. (Director Kim is beautifully dressed today.) (Along one side of the studio,) (beautiful and colorful outfits hang.) (What are these outfits for?) Aren’t they extravagant? – Yes. / – They’re so pretty. Today, we’re going over the outfits you’ll be wearing. (The outfits set the era of the piece.) (They highlight a character’s personality.) (Diverse outfits are worn in a ballet production.) (The swans will try theirs on today.) To see which outfits suit each of you the best, I brought some with me. – Are these yours? / – Yes, they’re mine. I think I saw them on your posters. Yes, on an imagery photo. That’s really pretty. This is what I wore in the first act of “Giselle”. I guess you can call it a semi-tutu. The outfit gives off an innocent young girl vibe, and the French doll wears a similar outfit. It’s a lot like what a shepherd wears. – That last one. / – It’s so beautiful. It’s the outfit I wore when dancing “The Dying Swan”. (Outfit from “The Dying Swan”) There’s no red embellishment in “Swan Lake”. But “The Dying Swan” is a piece that explains death. (The sad short ballet of a dying swan) – That’s why… / – It’s about a dying swan. – Death. / – It’s as if the swan was shot. – So, it looks like blood. / – Yes, blood. I thought it was tears of blood. Let’s check the outfits in “The Nutcracker”. Are they the ones on that rack? Yes. (They are the outfits the swans will wear on stage.) (It’s as if they’re from fairy tales.) (They’re so pretty.) Why don’t you try them on? – Really? / – Could we? I’ll wear it on top. Let’s just see how you look. This is the dress worn by Clara’s mom. I think it’ll suit you. Guys, please close your eyes. Ta-da! (My gosh!) It fits you perfectly. (Ta-da!) (She has transformed into a noblewoman.) (Her arms move gracefully.) Ta-da! It’s as if it were tailor-made for you. As you can see, I’m wearing it. (It fits Jumi perfectly.) – Are you keeping that on? / – Kids, your mom is here. You don’t have to keep it on. Your mom’s here. Let’s eat. You need to study. Have you done your homework? (She’s unbelievable.) Let’s move on to the next outside. – Cheng Xiao. / – Yes? This is for the Columbine doll. It’s adorable. She’s our very own Princess Pink. Why don’t you pose in character? – Let’s see how you look. / – Like this? (Adorable) It was adorable like a fairy tale. It was like being a princess of a fairy tale. Yoonah, I think that’s yours. This is for the French doll. – It’s so pretty. / – Isn’t it? I don’t think it’ll fit. It’s so pretty. – Isn’t it pretty? / – It sure is. Yoonah, you look amazing. – She’s so pretty. / – The colors suit you well. You look so young and fresh. To dress like a doll like that made me reminisce my childhood. Girls are all like that. That’s her genuine smile. It’s real. She’s not smiling for the camera. (Yoonah smiles for real thanks to the outfit.) Sungeun’s next. Do this move. (More) – That’s it. / – You look so pretty. (The outfit brings out the sexiness in Sungeun.) Is it a headpiece? (Yeonjae looks even cuter.) You look so pretty. I should head to the amusement park. We all should. (Let’s go!) We all should go. (While everyone enjoys the party) – Jiwon. / – Jiwon, my gosh. (However) (She seems uncomfortable.) I guess I’m too tall. The outfit’s too small for her. – That’s too bad. / – The length is fine. The bodice is too small, so she’ll need to find another one that fits her. Hers should be comfortable for the grand pas de deux since she needs to be held. (Meanwhile) – But… / – You look amazing. It’s fascinating. (The others pity her.) (Sullen) Truth be told, I was flustered. (She can’t hold back her laughter.) What should I do about my outfit? (I know) I should quickly look for one. (I’ll search online.) What about this? I wore this when I was 18. It’s been ten years though. (Will her old ballet outfit fit her?) What if it’s too short? I can’t close it. (Jiwon’s humiliated.) (Jiwon’s here to get herself a new outfit.) – Do I need to come for the fitting? / – That’s right. I’ll give you a call. – Here you go. / – My gosh. It’s in ivory. – The tutu. / – Yes. It can’t be shorter than this. (How will she look in the finished garment?)
