[Trans] Singles April 2013 – Park Yoochun (Prologue)

[Trans] Singles April 2013 – Park Yoochun (Prologue)


The atmosphere during the photo shooting is very quiet. In order for him to concentrate on his emotional acting, everyone looked at him quietly, cheering him through eye contacts.

When the photo shooting ended, he once again returned to the very charismatic 28 year old Park Yoochun who smiled cheekily and spoke sincerely.

“Compared to gratefulness, there were more of guiltiness,” This is his response about their fans who waited for them and towards the enquiry about the Tokyo Dome concert in April.

The young Micky Yoochun with a clean attractive outlook who would have a cute smile on even at the slightest joke, went through a worrying period alike to a youngster who left home. He has now transformed into a true man who can naturally act in romantic and action drama. Due to this period of time where everyone went through a turmoil of joy, anger and sadness, JYJ and their fans developed an even special relationship.

From ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ to ‘Missing You’, those who only became fans to the recently transformed Actor Park Yoochun, would probably forgot that he is originally an idol singer. He neither chose the safest way to walk nor is the type who would care only about himself during acting or portraying the acting that his agency created.

 It is also because JYJ had a high obstacle wall that obstruct them and the public. When we told him that we collected some enquiries from the fans for him, Park Yoochun who heard this, laughed out saying, “I feel so insecure. Because our fans are not that innocent.”

It suddenly dawned onto us that actually before he became a mysterious actor who seems to be isolated from the world, he is actually a singer who sweat it out, communicating on a stage. When speaking about acting, he would be careful and humble, saying that he is still a newcomer at acting. At that moment, he is also a very friendly and straightforward mannered young man who would look at others in the eyes when talking, yet not overly done. It was a witty interview. Thus in that 50 minutes interview with Park Yoochun, it seems as though it was a short 5 minutes.

[Trans] Singles April 2013 – Park Yoochun (Part 1)

[Trans] Singles April 2013 – Park Yoochun (Part 1)‏

Q: JYJ will be having a concert at Tokyo Dome this April. As this is your restarting activity in Japan, fans had high anticipation for it. How’s the preparation for now?

We also feel that it is a very meaningful event. I hope we are able to present a variety of performances. However there is a limit to the factors that we wanted to bring into the performance. Considering what we have, we will do our best in expanding the concert. Hopefully we are able to satisfy the fans’ anticipation. I will complete this performance with a mindset that, “This is the last performance.” I performed many times in Japan but I had never had this thought that “This is the last performance.” Looking back now, I can’t helped thinking, “Ah, I should have performed better that time.”

Q: We previously mentioned that this event is very meaningful. After going through many restrictions and difficulties, I think you guys would feel the preciousness of fans even more, right?

I guess so. Rather than unclear thinkings like “performed till I am unable to hold the microphone” or “till I am so old that I am unable to attend events”, there is a bit different this time. With such thinking, rather than gratefulness, I felt a sense of guilt towards the fans. With regards to activities in Japan, I always said that “If we were to do it like this, we will be able to do it in a very interesting way.” But it is not like this in actual. Therefore, to some extent, it made me very fed up, and also apologetic. Whenever there are events in Korea, Japanese fans would participate. I really felt sorry and touched.

Q: Is there also a feeling of “restarting henceforth”?

Yes. I really like the activities in Japan. To be honest, though the event at Tokyo Dome is going to be held, it is not as if all things has turned smooth sailing. Even now, Avex is still preparing to halt the event once again. (JYJ has won again their former Japanese agency Avex in a two year lawsuit. According to the judgement, the contract has ended and they are able to start their activities again.) I really has this thinking. “It’s good enough that we have this opportunity to perform.” Therefore when I had the chance, I hope to present a lot to the fans.

Q: When will you be releasing your album?

If only I can finished it before the concert this time, that will be good. I want to present a soft gentle style in the album, and rap as well. Due to such ideas, I was confused when I was composing! When I was composing a certain style, I thought again “Oh, I want to add another genre into the song.” Then I would add in many types of factors and was unable to find the balance for the song. If I were to present such an album I wouldn’t be satisfied either! Even though I knew fans are anticipating my album, I think that I should slowly, completely finished each song’s story before I present it out.

Q: I am anticipating a soft gentle music! Many fans would want to listen to Park Yoochun’s ballad album.

I faced quite a lot of difficulties during lyrics writing. In the past, I would write the lyrics then after which I would read the lyrics and add in the melody that comes to my head. However this time I had a change. I considered a lot on accompanying music and the smooth relay of the melody. Thus when I am done with the composing and add everything together, I realised it doesn’t suit the lyrics anymore. The arrangement and the melody would be very grand and when all are placed together, the lyrics seems to be out of place and it doesn’t sound compatible with the melody. Therefore I am still unable to write the suitable lyrics for it. From now on, I will finished all one by one.

Q: After drama ‘Missing You’ concluded, the haircut you had aroused discussions. Why did you decide to have changes to hair style so frequently?

To be honest, my body doesn’t belong to me only. To change a hair style is not an easy thing. Due to my work, I would have to follow such rules. But I think I still have a bit of selfishness, “I think I want to have a hairstyle of my own style.” Though it is important to find a hairstyle that suits oneself, changing hairstyles can also help me in relieving stress. As I have too many things done that were not up to my choice, I have this thinking that as long as it doesn’t result in me reporting to the prosecutor’s office, it should be okay even if I did that? (laughs) People around me are asking how am I going to film advertisement in this hairstyle?! Ah, to be honest it’s good to have so many endorsements but if I am unable to get any endorsement, I would think that it’s because I am not their type. Then I would work harder in my next work to reach their requirements then. But it is due to my hairstyle, this seems to be on another level of discussion. (laughs)

Q: Until now, which is the hairstyle that you like the most?

In fact I actually wanted to shave a hairstyle like Hareem and then tattoo on the scalp. Haha! Joking! Personally, I prefer long hair. After the end of ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, my hairstyle then was long enough to tie a ponytail. Almost that length. But once I cut it short, I would not be able to grow it out again. I think I now understand why girls would find it hard to grow out their hair. Same as my mother. Furthermore if I were to grow out my hair, I might not be able to work for at least a year. However I am working for the whole of this year.

Q: In the previous interview, you mentioned before that if you are unable to work (in the entertainment industry), you would work in the farm with your members. Do you think this would happen?

At that time, I really did had this thinking. I will really give up being an artiste. I left the previous company with such thoughts. I sincerely ever thought that I would give up everything and live with my family just like that, just taking care of them. But the other members pulled me back. We are each other’s support.

Q: As you have been living under the limelight, it wouldn’t be easy for you to give up everything, right?

I am the kind of person who wouldn’t care about such things. In the past, I just want to live my life peacefully somewhere. I can do any kind of work. Since I have already done those tough work in the past, what else is there that I am unable to do? (laughs)

Q: When did you work in those hard labour before?

That was before my debut. It was for my trip to Korea.

Q: In the drama ‘Missing You’, there is a term to describe you, ‘chemical reaction terminator’. To have chemistry between actors, one had to listen to the other’s lines and actions. It would be difficult to understand other’s acting when you are a newcomer but for Yoochun, you seems to give an impression that you would react to the opposite’s acting from your first drama onwards.

Senior actors and directors did said this before, that my biggest forte is also my strength. For the first drama, I really acted without knowing what acting is. Because the other party is talking, I listened. Usually when anyone else is talking, people would usually listened to them isn’t it? In the beginning, I had no idea what it meant. Now I finally knew that listening to others is very important. Therefore it’s the same during memorising of lines. When facing a lengthy line or filming soon after the receipt of the script, reading the lines is the same as common communication. Naturally one would be able to memorise the lines. Filming would be more interesting this way. Acting would be more natural and that impromptu acting would be even more mesmerising.

Q: Idol-born actors don’t usually have good results. An actor’s life needs more freedom and Yoochun is considered to be living freely. There were many human interaction issues experienced and compared to other idols, your emotions seems to be expressed more fulfilling.

Due to own’s experience and also as an artiste, these experiences are very helpful to acting. Having personal experience and thus knowing such feelings, it would be easier to express it out. I saw seniors who would go on a trip after a drama ended. Though sometimes it was for a photo spread, but to see more, rest more and to interact more, is a process of accumulating experience. It is necessary for an actor’s life. It is benefiting.

Q: When you first decided to act in ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, did you expect acting to be a big part of your life?

Of course not. At that time, I just thought that I should try and was not confident. As it is a saeguk drama, the burden was huge. Therefore I tried and thought to myself that if I find it interesting, I would then try continuing. (laughs) Actor is a job that is tough and yet needs attention and is very charismatic.

Q: After a drama ended, you would definitely found out about certain new feelings and skills, it must be interesting. How’s this time round?

‘Missing You’ is one that can be understood easily and the scenes can be imagined. However in the beginning, I seems to be unable to be indulged in it. My way of expressing doesn’t seems to be suitable for the scenario at that time and it made me had a hard time. But thankfully the character is quite different from my previous work and fans who watched the drama saw something different too. This made me satisfied. Actually this is the most difficult. I am still the same yet I have to portray a different character. I cannot simply change the way I speak or the actions or expressions and the feeling would be different. Thus I have to be become more sensitive. It’s great that everyone saw him as ‘Han Jung Woo’. I am very happy.
