[Info] 130429 Five Fun Facts About JYJ Yoo Chun (As Actor)

[Info] 130429 Five Fun Facts About JYJ Yoo Chun (As Actor)

Here are a few facts you may not know about Park Yoo Chun.


Park Yoo Chun, also known as Yoochun and by the stage name of Micky Yoochun is so popular throughout Asia, that when he travels with his group JYJ, airports are often immobilized by the arrival of eager fans.

Although you may know a lot about the singer-turned actor, here are a few more facts.

1. Park Yoo Chun is very close to his brother, Park Yoo Hwan, who is also an actor. The brothers immigrated to America with their parents but were separated when Yoochun left to pursue a career as a singer. The experience was difficult for both of them, but today the siblings are closer than ever.

“My brother is like a father to me,” said Yoo Hwan, who appeared in the drama, “A Thousand Days’ Promise.”

As to who is a better actor, Yoochun says his brother’s acting is more natural than his, but he is better at being emotional.

2. The role of Han Jung Woo in “Missing You” proves that Yoochun can turn on the tears. The line his character kept repeating was that he was not really crying but the wind was making his eyes tear up. But it was so cold on set that it actually interfered with his crying.

“When the chilly wind is blowing, it’s not easy to cry,” said Yoochun. “And in the cold wintry weather, my mouth often became frozen when I was saying my lines.

3. He does not think he is a good actor yet or necessarily very attractive.

“Honestly, I need makeup in order to look good, and because I became an actor all of the sudden after being a singer, there is a lot of room for improvement,” said Yoochun.

When praised for his work, he said. “It is not because my acting is good; rather I think my personal experiences show through my acting. As I have experienced crying bitterly before, it was possible for me to cry in scenes like that.”

4. He would like to grow hair longer again, as it was in his early JYJ days, but drama roles get in the way.

“After “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” my hair was so long I could tie it up, I like long hair like that. But after I cut it off, even if I want it long again, I can’t do it. If I want to let my hair grow long, I need to have one year of no work, but there is work continually.”

5. He is so busy that he considered adopting a daughter but decided his schedule was too demanding. He so enjoyed interacting with the young actress Kim So Hyun when he starred in “Rooftop Prince” that he began to think about how much he would like to have a daughter.

“I really love daughters,” said Yoochun. “I fantasize about having a loving family. When I marry I think I will be able to have a daughter like So Hyun.”

[Trans] 121202 Park Yoochun, “My Younger Brother Made Me Very Proud Of Him”‏

[Trans] 121202 Park Yoochun, “My Younger Brother Made Me Very Proud Of Him”

Park Yoochun who is currently acting as the lead in MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Missing You’, recently praised his younger brother in an interview, “In the past, I have a feeling that I had to lead the family (as a family head) but now my younger brother’s strength is getting stronger gradually that he made me feel that I have some parts I can depend on.”

Ever since his younger brother Park Yoohwan (21) debuted as an actor last year’s February in MBC weekend drama ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’, he experienced a total of three dramas last year, including MBC ‘Gye Baek’ and SBS ‘Thousand Days Promise’, making his face and name known. Especially in ‘Thousand Days Promise’ where he acted as the younger brother of Soo Ae, his sincere tearing acting gained attraction.

This year, he was chosen to be the lead in Channel A ‘Strongest Kpop Survival’, followed by a six month stint in MBC sitcom ‘Can’t Live Without You’.

Park Yoochun laughed saying, “Yoohwan seems to be acting very well. As he have acted in sitcom and dramas, he has more acting experiences than me.”

He continued to emphasize, “His non-stop filming of 110 episodes recently is very commendable. Seems that since the both of us are acting, we are able to understand and relate to each other. Thus it feels really comfortable and good.”

Park Yoohwan is the typical example of ‘started acting through his brother.’ Living together with his older brother and mother, he returned to Korea after spending 6 years in America. Before he found his goal at acting, he was at a lost with no dream.

However through his older brother Park Yoochun, he developed an interest in acting and after a year of acting classes, he received a pass immediately at his first audition and acted in ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’.

Park Yoochun said, “It’s only a few years ago that I became an actor together with Yoohwan. It was really unexpected. My younger brother is currently doing very well and I am very proud of it.”

[Trans] 120606 Lee Tae Sung: “The Prejudices I Had Towards Idols-Turned-Actors Were All Broken By Yoochun

While “Rooftop Prince” was being broadcast, Lee Tae Sung would often demonstrate his close friendship with Park Yoochun through Twitter. To Yoochun, who had suffered the loss of his father in the earlier stages of filming, Lee Tae Sung had sent a message full of genuine care, “Although you are doing very well now, just be a son that your father would be proud of. Don’t say such heartbreaking things. You just experienced it earlier than others would. Press on.” Naturally, it makes people wonder how Park Yoochun is like in his eyes, as a colleague.

“Before the filming, I had my doubts as to whether Park Yoochun, who had started off as an idol, would be able to take on the role of Lee Gak well. So I think the way I looked at Yoochun was influenced by these social perceptions. Although he has quite little experience with filming productions as an actor, if you were to look past that, he is really very hardworking. Despite the tight filming schedule where we did not even have time to sleep, he was still able to familiarise himself perfectly with the script. He had to deal with some tough situations while filming, and in the latter half his physical condition got worse and worse, but he was still able to take on what is equivalent to 3 different roles, right up till the end. He is a good actor.

110925 Video Park Yong Ha Story Jaejoong Cut

[Vid] Jaejoong Talks about Park Yong Ha

Jaejoong: An actor who had much desire for his craft?Jaejoong: Very much… How do you say… shall I say laughter? I feel that he was very much overflowing with smiles. Worries… He was someone with a lot of worries, always. To refrain from showing those worries—he tried hard to do that also. I don’t know what it was, but he always had so many worries. And the counseling on those worries—we had many of those, as hyung and dongsaeng. But I remember his face—the face that, even in the midst of them, never once lost the smile.

Jaejoong: Ah… he was a singer who always worked hard, and also always worried for the sake of his fans.

Jaejoong: A while ago… when I had gone to the United States and maybe two to three days had passed… I heard of the news. In the United States… as soon as I landed in the Los Angeles Airport, I had a call from Yongha hyung. “Where are you.” “In the US.” “Ah, so you’ve gone to the US. When you come back, let’s have a drink together.” He had said those words to me.

And even before that, when we had met in Japan, he had spoken repeatedly about that concert. Very much… let us keep improving, improving. Those words, he had told me repeatedly, over and over. But, then suddenly such a thing happened… Just… My mind had no thoughts. I was… for a very long time, just blank…

Jaejoong: He was someone that did not give off the feel of being a celebrity, at all. He was someone like the hyung next door. When you look at the results and the feats that Yongha hyung had accomplished in his life, he had a very high stature. Despite that, he showed himself as someone who, separate from the renown and popularity of celebrities, was a human being exactly like everyone else—very often.

So I feel that perhaps that is why the people around him loved very much the Yongha hyung, the man.

Jaejoong: When Yongha hyung did not have too many activities in Japan, we were in Japan quite a lot because of group activities. There was a time in which we lived in Japan for six months, a year. If my contact information changed, of if the contact information of those friends in Korea changed, then we would lose touch with each other—this happened from time to time. But in my voicemail, “My number changed. Are you healthy? Your health is the most important thing, so take care of it. And I miss you. And also… even once… I should go to you, to see you.” He’d say that. But many people say that—“let’s meet, let’s have a drink.” Often, those words just end in words. But he was someone who really kept to the words that he spoke. He really came all the way to Japan. Yongha hyung… before he left… he came to see a performance of ours, in Japan. He did say that because of a schedule he had to go out in the middle, but… He was someone who really kept every word.

Jaejoong: First, as a basic thing, we talked about music a lot. And also, performing—we talked about it a lot. We talked about acting also. We also talked about women. Yes. How do you say…? Really, what is strange is that he felt lonely a lot. He felt lonely quite often, but he relieved the loneliness with other things. I think probably that thing was music. Even though his main career was that of an actor… he’d say: “I really want to sing. I really want to sing, and… I want to begin anew, from the very beginning.”

Jaejoong: I think all the fans know. The musician or the actor they like… from behind the scenes, “how hard do they work for our sake?” I think the fans know the answer to that the best. He worried so very much. On stages that were so big, he had performed many times, and he also had so many fans. But for the sake of the fans in Japan… “from the little theatres, from the very beginning, I want to begin performing anew.” He’d tell me that in his worry, and would repeatedly ask me whether I thought that was okay. Because he had such a loving heart for the fans like that—probably that is why, even now, the fans are waiting for Yongha hyung.

Jaejoong: Ah… When I think of Hyung, already laughter comes forth from me. I… from Hyung… truly so many things I think I learned from you for a long time… and to the many people around me… the kind heart that Hyung showed… I am conveying that… and I want to also show it as you did… And also, your mother, your brother-in-law, your older sisters… I would contact them, have meals together with them and such… but now that you aren’t here… really you are missed…. The place where you are now—I visit it often… and talk to you very often, but… Ah… I do not know. But, I don’t know. More than any other thing, I wish that you are also happy where you are. So that even by just looking up at the sky, we will continue to have your smile come to our minds… please, continue to protect us… I wish you’d smile down at us. Really really, I love you. Thank you.

Translation 110630 Kim Junsu, “I Would Like To Act Out Musicals in Theatres Too.

[Trans] 110630 Kim Junsu, “I would like to act out musicals in theatres too.”‏

“Falling in love with musicals, next year, the year after next, I would like to act out musicals in theatres.” Moving onward from Xiah Junsu to Kim Junsu, he met us in a cafe at Cheongdam-dong on the 29th.

Upon talking about musicals, this new actor who debuted in musical field for 2 years would passionately discussed with us, but when facing burdensome inquiries, he would be alike to the idol singer who debuted for 8 years, displaying his experiences and confidence.

Within the idols who challenged musicals, Kim Junsu is definitely the topic. Other than the subsequent lead acting of great works, the tickets that were sold out within a short time, the high performance fee etc, were the topics of discussion.

Even though the raging topics, why did you decided to step in with musicals from the start?

“It’s just the right timing. Although I did received projects from movies, dramas and there are free slots in between schedules…. but compared to anything, music is still the most important. So I was thinking since it a must to have music, why not take a try at musicals? When I first acted in musicals, I did not think that I would end up loving it. (laughs)”

After the debut musical ‘Mozart’, you were asked to lead in ‘Tears of Heaven’, this simply is a follow-up victory.

“I seems to have slightly understood what musical is about until recently. In the beginning, it felt very tiring even though there’s no mistake made, now I’m slowly learning through the amicable cooperation with the other actors… and starts to notice the reactions of the audience. Thus the musical performances for every day is different.” He continued introducing the so-called ’3 seconds difference’ on stage. “There is a scene in Mozart where I followed the Baroness, how many seconds should I back-faced the audience after finishing my lines so that I can display to the audience the feel that I wanted? The most suitable timing is about 3 seconds. (laughs)”

Other than this, he was often pointed out that his delivery of lyrics was not as strong as professional musical actors.

“Singing in musical is totally different from singing songs. For example, the usage of ‘banding’ (a singing technique where the note was dragged and blended into the next word) was not appropriate. The lyrics has to be sang out one word by one word. Compared to other actors, maybe it was not easily differentiate but it would still be better that l changed my way of singing.”

As a musical actor and actively as an idol singer, do you feel that you have slowly became closer to any character?

“But if I were to stand on JYJ’s stage now and to sing with my way of singing in musical, it would probably be a torture to the members. Even my hand signals has slowly increased. (laughs) I think for me right now, it is to slowly forwarding towards the way of ‘Even if I was a singer, I’m also a musical actor.’ Just as though there’s a switch in between the two, where I can freely move around.”

There were a lot of controversies. Like the rumours of ten millions of performance fees and the ability to become the male lead due to the investment by the company (you belonged) etc. When asked about the question of ‘idol glamour’, Kim Junsu surprisingly gave a calm and outright attitude while giving an answer.

“I understand that the choir department actors were able to stand on stage after working hard for a long while. I received this ‘gift’ of being the lead actor after my hardwork as a singer, this is at least how my thought is. As for the high performance fee rumours, I think it’s not only in musical that there are such rumours right? No matter it be drama or CF, there were many issues for the receipt of fees that broke records too… It’s just that the musical industry was so bad and thus the unique appearance of such rumours, right?”

Do you have any contributions that you wanted to do or ambitions that you have in the future involvement into musicals?

“Next year, or the year after, I would like to act in theatres. If I can be ambassador-like and create the effect of supporting musicals, it would be a rather grateful thing. But to do till such, the first step should be having audience who watch, and to have the love of the public, then the public performance can be a success, and followed on by more investors. Therefore, the production company and actors will be able to create a more fruitful work, and afterwhich wouldn’t there be a possible promotion to overseas?”

Due to the contract issue between JYJ and ex-company SM, the broadcasting activities were restricted by their contract. (T/N: JYJ was not directly restricted due to contractual problems. Refer to legal news.)

“It’s currently still in an unclear state. Due to the difficulties currently, we just have to try working in other directions, this is very exhausting. If there were things we wished to do, we’d have to think about how to do it in another way, and then not to give up on any hope.”

He is currently a young adult of 24 years old, are there any plans for army enlistment? He jokingly replied, “When performing the story in ‘Tears of Heaven’, I ever thought, ‘Why not bring forward the enlistment, it actually would be not a bad experience, isn’t it!’.”

“I received a health check last February and of course it’s a must to enlist for army. (laughs) The results for the health check is 3rd grade (note: 3rd grade is for person who had injuries but still able to be enlisted in army and an approximate of 22 months.) There’s a bit of disappointment for the results. I’m a man afterall, and has the pride of a man, I thought the results will be of 1st grade. Hopefully I can be enlisted after maximizing the activities I can do.”

We asked about the greatest change after involving in musicals.

“During the empty period (lawsuit with SM), musical came to me, and now I only listened to music from musicals. I hope to become an actor who is able to inspire and touch the audience.”
