“Park Bonn’s work is fast-paced, precise and humorous.”
- Hakan Sava? Mican (German playwright)
Berlin-born and Europe-based playwright and director Park Bonn is a prize-winner at the Berlin Theatertreffen Stückemarkt at the age of 30. In June, 2021, he presents his new work on the stage of NTCK. The title of the play LIEBE II means ‘a sequel to love’. Park, who was born and raised in Germany despite his roots in Korea, shares his unique perspectives and insight as someone who is neither an insider nor an outsider. He notes that both K-pops and K-dramas portray people passionately striving for perfection. In the belief that everyone should be involved in the creative process, he has created a lively yet profound story together with the cast and staff members.
A Sequel to Love
There are four people stuck somewhere between this world and the next. They dream of becoming pop idols and sing about the essence of the most common and diverse human emotions. We witness their intense struggle to reach perfection, and their ardent pursuit of their dreams. What is it that completes various forms of love beyond the love between people? What remains on the other side of completed love? Starting with such questions, the play invites us on a journey to find answers from the creative stage through to the final performance. Let us not forget. It may not be as romantic as other romantic dramas, but it certainly is a love story.
Three people have taken their own lives after failing to become pop idols. Although they expect their lives to be over, they continue to exist in the earth core. Still hoping to become pop idols, they decide to cultivate and train a new member so they can form a perfect group together—amidst the grass, flowers and flowing water there.
