Hailing from The Royal Ballet company, Leticia Stock has earned an impressive resume by dancing in classics like “The Nutcracker”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Giselle”, as well as, a host of others in picturesque Europe.  Accomplished choreographers Wayne McGregor, Christopher Wheeldon, Liam Scarlett, and Twyla Tharp are just some of the big names Leticia has worked with.

Recently, BTSCelebs was given the opportunity to ask the new Joffrey Ballet dancer several questions to learn a little more about this rising talent.

BTSCelebs: Describe yourself in a few sentences.  

Leticia Stock: I’m a very easy going person and like to enjoy my time on and off stage. I’m very driven and perfectionist, which sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes makes everything more difficult. 

How did you get interested in ballet?

I started very young watching my sister dance. I just wanted to be like her.

Why did you choose to be a part of The Joffrey Ballet? 

I think the Joffrey Ballet has great repertoire and great opportunities to dance amazing roles. Also, Chicago is a great city to live in.

Tell us about one unforgettable experience you’ve had in Chicago since you’ve joined Joffrey.

I’ve just moved two months ago so I’m still making memories and finding out great places in Chicago.

If you had the chance to choreograph one Broadway show, what show would it be? Why would you choose this particular production?

Chicago :). I just love the songs.

Which show from Joffrey’s upcoming season are you looking forward to the most?

Our triple bill “Across the Pond.” I can’t wait to dance another piece by Liam Scarlett.

Many people are excited for the new season. Please give us one word you think best describes The Joffrey Ballet’s 2018-2019 season.

Exciting.

Rom-coms to fill the weekly void between Seo Kang Joon’s “The Third Charm” episodes

This is the second article that was pitched for a DramaFever release but didn’t make it to publishing.

JTBC is currently airing The Third Charm, which is about a couple’s realistic relationship over the course of a 12 year period. Seo Kang Joon and Esom’s on-screen chemistry make some viewers anxious for the next episode. To fill that weekly void, I created this list from DramaFever’s former library of rom-com programming.

Check out the list and feel free to search online for your favorites!

Manhole (available on Viki.com)

Time traveling comes in handy for a hopeless romantic who is trying to stop his lifelong crush from marrying someone else. The young guy uses a magical manhole to travel back and forth through time to win his childhood friend’s heart before its too late.

Our Gab Soon (available on Viki.com)

A Common law couple, friendly divorcees and even a married pair in a loveless marriage are all thorns in one struggling young couple’s side. They believe lack of financial stability is the reason they haven’t wed yet. However, the negative influences around them may be making an even bigger impact.

One Percent of Something

Arrange marriages seem undesirable, but for one rich guy it’s the only way to gain his coveted inheritance. His late grandfather requested that he marry an elementary school teacher and live with her for 6 months before he can obtain any part of the family wealth. He didn’t expect to develop real feelings for his wife during their contract marriage.

My Secret Romance

One night stands are never a promise for lasting love, but for a businessman and a veterinarian the impossible happened. After a few years separation, the pair unexpectedly reunite to realize that they have been in love with each other since that one fateful night.

Next month, actor Sung Hoon will also star in the brand new Oksusu rom-com I Picked Up a Celebrity on the Street.

Bonus: Longing Heart (available on Hulu.com)

The Third Charm (The Third Way Of Love) currently airs every Friday and Saturday on JTBC and it’s streaming at OnDemandKorea.com.
