[Trans] 140103 Stars Who Will Shine In The Year Of The Wooden Horse (1) – Park Yoochun


2014 is upon us. Sports Hankook has created a list of stars who will shine in the entertainment industry this year, the year of the wooden horse. They may be rookies or veterans. We have given them the name of ‘New Risers’, stars who will rise to success in the New Year of 2014.

#Park Yoochun is set to captivate the movie industry and the drama industry at the same time

[SWOT Keyword]
S(trength) – Solid acting, success in previous productions, trustworthy seniors
W(eakness) – Stamina, schedule
O(pportunity) – Two-pronged approach, ‘You, Who Came From The Stars’
T(hreat) – Joo Sang Wook, Lee Min Jung, Kim Hyun Joong

Kicking off with Micky Yoochun. But these days, people are more familiar with the name ‘Park Yoochun’. The title of ‘actor’ sounds less awkward on him than the title of ‘member of JYJ’.

He was a leading role from the start. Making his debut with ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ in 2010, he has appeared on ‘Miss Ripley’, ‘Rooftop Prince’ and ‘I Miss You’. He has encountered a variety of genres, like comedy, history and thrillers. He never suffered from any ‘acting controversies’, something that has followed every idol who has transformed into an actor. It would not be wrong to say that Park Yoochun is the most successful idol-turned-actor in the industry.

His solid acting and the success of his previous productions has landed him a major role. He has been chosen as the leading role of SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday miniseries ‘Three Days’, which is kicking off with a 10 billion Won investment. As the creation of screenwriter Kim Eun Hui, who has worked with successful actors like Park Shin Yang and So Ji Seob in ‘Sign’ and ‘Ghost’, the drama is a great choice for Park Yoochun.

‘Three Days’ is already set to become a success. Though there are still two months left till the drama begins airing, Kim Eun Hui has already written more than half of the entire script. The drama is set to be of a high quality as she won’t be scrambling to finish off her script. ‘You, Who Came From The Stars’, the preceding drama of ‘Three Days’, already has a viewership of 25%. If they current trend continues, ‘Three Days’ has a high possibility of beginning with a 30% viewership.


2014 is set to be a great year for Park Yoochun as an actor because he will also be making his big-screen debut through Director Bong Joon Ho’s movie ‘Sea Fog’. If Park Yoochun is able to succeed in his two-pronged approach, he will solidify an unparalleled position in both industries.

A representative of the entertainment industry stated, “Kim Soo Hyun and Song Joong Ki have both made their mark as top stars by appearing in both movies and dramas. Park Yoochun is still considered more of a ‘star’ than an ‘actor’, but if ‘Three Days’ and ‘Sea Fog’ succeed, he will establish himself as the most influential Hallyu star and actor of the industry.”

The weight on Park Yoochun’s shoulders is slightly lighter because of the experienced veterans at his side. In ‘Sea Fog’, he will be working alongside stars like Kim Yoon Seok, Moon Sung Geun and Kim Sang Ho. In ‘Three Days’, he will be working with Sohn Hyun Joo, Yoon Jae Moon, Jang Hyun Sung, Choi Won Young, Park Ha Sun and So Yi Hyun.

The representative also added, “In both movies and dramas, the ensemble is extremely important. This is a great opportunity for Park Yoochun as he will be working with the most well-known and talented actors of the industry.”

However, there are rising powers Park Yoochun must be wary of. ‘Three Days’ will be going head to head with KBS 2TV’s ‘Emotional Generation’, which will feature Kim Hyun Joong, and MBC’s ‘Cute Returning Single’, which will feature Joo Sang Wook and Lee Min Jung. Analyzing the cast, the power of the screenwriters and the statistics of the previous Wednesday-Thursday dramas, ‘Three Days’ has the upper hand. However, this does not mean they can be relaxed about it. The tables can turn at any moment, and Park Yoochun must be on high alert.

It is imperative that Park Yoochun takes care of his stamina and schedule in order to succeed this year. He must begin filming for ‘Three Days’ as soon as he finishes filming for ‘Sea Fog’. He must make sure his schedule is well-balanced in order for him to be in the best condition possible. Both productions have many outside filming sessions, which means that it is important for Park Yoochun to take care of his health.

[News] 120329 ‘Rooftop Prince’ Park Yoo Chun Always Plays The Role Of A Rich Guy

[News] 120329 ‘Rooftop Prince’ Park Yoo Chun Always Plays The Role Of A Rich Guy

JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun always plays the roles of a rich guy in all of his TV dramas.

In SBS’s series Rooftop Prince, which started airing on March 21, Park plays the double role of a crown prince named Lee Gak and the son of a great industrial family named Yong Tae Yong.

He has also played the roles of a rich man in other two series and people are paying a lot of attention to him because he plays the same type of role but shows a different side in each series.

Park played the role of Lee Seon Joon, the only son of a high ranking officer in times of King Jeongjo in KBS’s series Sungkyunkwan Scandal. His father is a Cabinet member in present times.

 In addition, he played the role of an heir named Song Yoo Hyun, who will succeed his family business in MBC’s Miss Ripley in 2011. He even enjoyed a date with Lee Da Hae in his private helicopter.

In his current series, Rooftop Prince, Park has moved up in social class and has became a crown prince. He also plays the role of Yong Tae Yong, who will take over a Home Shopping Company. In the first episode of the series, Park drew a lot of attention by cruising on a luxurious yacht, which belongs to the company, with Lee Tae Sung.

Even though Park has been playing the roles of rich guys, he shows different charms in each series. Park is showing off his charismatic and comic charms in the current series.

People responded: “Park looks good playing the role of a rich guy.” “Park plays the roles of high ranking people in succession. Hyun Bin couldn’t have even done that.” “Where can I find this kind rich guy?”

The production crew for the series says, “Everyone wants to play the role of a rich guy but Park has been playing the role three times in a row and it even surprised us. Park will capture the public’s attention by showing off his great sense of humor in the series.”

The March 28 episode of the series received 11.2 percent of the audience rating (AGB Nielsen Media Research) and is finding his way to the top among other series which air every Wednesday and Thursday.

[Trans] 120117 JYJ Yoochun, “Miss Ripley” Making Of DVD To Go On Sale!

[Trans] 120117 JYJ Yoochun, “Miss Ripley” Making Of DVD To Go On Sale!

Yoochun, who showed his great potential as an actor in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, created a commotion with the selection of his next project “Miss Ripley.” Challenging an adult romance which is very different from his previous work, Yoochun showed delicate emotional acting, and the “making of” video clips full of talent and charm will be on sale.

Differing in appearance from the period piece “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” , Yoochun shows a more natural cool style and captures the hearts of the fans. From his mischievous ways in front of the staff and co-actors, to his nervousness as he focuses his energies before the shoot, (this video) is filled with various expressions of Yoochun that cannot be found in the actual show. Also, there are “backstage” comments from Yoochun, who speaks during the breaks in filming.

 Aside from Yoochun, (the show features) Kim Sung Woo, who showed overflowing charisma in his acting in “Iris”, Lee Da Hae, who has had many hit dramas such as “Chuno”, and actress Kang Hye Jung, who has been active in movies. With such a strong cast of actors gathered on set, the atmosphere was surprisingly congenial!

As a result of the harmonious atmosphere on the set, Yoochun was able to become closer to the other actors, who were older that him. He showed cute sides of him that were different from when he was overflowing with nervousness, allowing people to see his “frank humour”.

Drawing its inspiration from the suspense novel bestseller series, “Ripley”, this work depicts human nature which revolves around a continuous chain of lies and desires. The overwhelming professionalism of the actors is also shown – how they switch from serious, when they act out thrilling scenes of lying or being lied to, to their natural sides in the offshoot.

In particular, the camera, which focuses mainly on Yoochun, shows scenes from his comments, to him drawing portraits of the staff, to him signing for his fans, making the honest side of Yoochun available to everyone. Fans will not be able to resist seeing scenes such as (Yoochun) receiving guidance from the trainers during the training and swimming scenes that are featured in this volume. Also, Yoochun’s comments throughout filming breaks are also recorded.

We are glad to be able to know the true feelings of Yoochun as an actor, who says he realised the joy of acting through this work. Contrary to the theme of “lies” that is presented (in the drama), this volume is rich with content of Yoochun’s “frankness”.

[TRANS] 111216 New Drama “Miss Ripley” Hits Japan! Exclusive Interview With Actor Park Yoochun

[TRANS] 111216 New Drama “Miss Ripley” Hits Japan! Exclusive Interview With Actor Park Yoochun

The drama DVD will be released in Japan in February 2012. Park Yoochun, who has been receiving a great amount of praise as an actor, shared his memories about his shooting process with us at The Banyan Tree Club & Spa Seoul,  the hotel where the outdoor shoots for “Miss Ripley” was done.

Acting while thinking about “The situation of a first love”

“The Song Yoohyun which I portray is innocent and doesn’t know anything about love, a person who mulls over his problems and doesn’t talk about it.” This is what Yoochun says about his role in “Miss Ripley.” As he explained, Yoohyun was born to a Japanese mother and Korean father, and his mother passed away when he was 9 years old. Following that, he studied at the University of Tokyo, and has the Japanese name Yutaka, as well as Korean name Yoohyun. His father remarried, and hoped that his son would take over the business. If this was a typical drama, the main character would be rebel against his father and refuse to take over the business. However, Song Yoohyun is a straightforward man who grew up in a proper manner, and it was probably because of this that he bumps into the beautiful Jang Miri at a student hostel in Seoul, and falls in love with her at first sight. His expression at that moment in time is probably a true expression of Yoohyun’s innocence, leaving a deep impression.

“The director said that to Song Yoohyun, Jang Miri is his first love, so he wanted me to express the emotion of being in love for the first time. However, when I was acting I was not thinking about my first love, instead immersing myself in the character of Yoohyun then expressing the emotion.” Compared to the innocent Song Yoohyun, female lead Jang Miri, despite living in a student hostel herself, felt that “men who are living in a student hostel must be poor,” so prior to knowing that he is a chaebol, always treated Yoohyun in a cold manner. To escape her bitter past, she lies that she is a graduate of the University of Tokyo, and starts working in a hotel. She dates both Kim Seung Woo’s character Jang Myung Hoon, and Song Yoohyun at the same time. Although she is the female lead, her role has a strong image of an “evil woman.”

“If it were me, I definitely wouldn’t be cheated by a person like Miri. As long as there is something slightly strange about his/her actions or words, I will be able to tell that it is a lie. Ah no, there are times which I can’t tell as well (laughs). If you were to ask if I was someone who would be easily cheated or not, do I look like the type who will be easily fooled? I feel that I haven’t really been cheated before, and can detect a lie at a glance. When chatting with staff, I can tell immediately if they are lying. If it’s being fooled by a girlfriend? Hmm… then maybe I won’t be able to tell (laughs). I think my mom would say “You’re still not there yet.”

Saying with an innocent face that he cannot be fooled, then saying that he might be fooled, Park Yoochun’s air of purity seems to fit well with the character of Song Yoohyun.

In the drama, Song Yoohyun falls in love with Jang Miri and expresses this directly. But considering it carefully, Song Yoohyun does not understand how Miri grew up, and her character. Furthermore, Miri showed no interest to him at first, treating him in a cold manner, pushing him away, and despite being treated this way, he fearlessly expresses his feelings for her. Even though Miri’s friend, Moon Hui Joo (played by Kang Hye Jung) expresses her interest in Yoohyun, he doesn’t waver at all.

“I think that anyone could fall in love at first sight. But whether that will lead to love, I don’t know. Personally, I hope that love can last for a long time, and develop slowly. Of course, if I meet someone I like, I will work hard to show her my charm. Song Yoohyun is a optimistic person, and we are similar in that aspect. But in terms of having a special method of “if you do this, you can definitely get the girl,” I don’t have that (laughs).

“To touch a person’s heart is really difficult. If you ask me what you should do to move someone, I don’t have an answer to that too.”


In that case, have you considered how you would need to touch someone as an actor?

“That is not something that I have really thought about. But that is to say, isn’t the fact that I haven’t really thought about it, the reason that touches the hearts of the viewers?  To do things with the aim of touching other people’s hearts, I think that as an actor, things are a little different.  The character of Song Yoohyun is like that as well, a person without such motives. When I was reading the script, what first attracted me to the role of Song Yoohyun was his completely straightforward personality. I am like that myself, and after my debut I was faced with all kinds of situations and I would always give it my all. Therefore, I felt that Yoohyun and I are very similar, and was attracted to him. Compared to the plot of the drama, it is more important to accept the role of Yoohyun.

It is not simple, obvious changes, but the expression of subtle changes that is very difficult.  

Initially believing in Miri completely without any suspicion, Song Yoohyun finds out the truth about Miri in the second half of the drama, and causes Yoohyun’s world to shake. The suspense of this part of the show is thrilling. “Although Song Yoohyun’s character and mindset hasn’t changed, but a part of him has become cold. If Yoohyun had, after finding out about Miri’s lies, changed his feelings and attitudes completes, it would have been easier to express. However, to show no change in his basic emotions, and showing subtle differences instead is very difficult.”

Park Yoochun manages to express these complex yet subtle emotions well through his acting. In terms of acting, what are the points that he looks out for?

“Instead of just the physical appearance, and things that can be seen with your eyes, I focused on how to express the lines in my own way. For me, I am one of those “holds on to the script till the last minute, studying the script” types, but for this role, I placed more focus on how to blend Song Yoohyun’s character into my own.” During the filming period, there would also be times in his daily life where he would accidentally show glimpses of Song Yoohyun instead. “Song Yoohyun is always well-dressed, elegant and well-mannered.  So during the shooting, I naturally maintained good poise, and even the way I held my glass while drinking champagne was better than usual (laughs.) In ways like these, Song Yoohyun’s actions became part of my daily life.

Shooting at The Banyan Tree was difficult, but created many memories

Another point to look out for in this drama is Yoohyun’s crying scene.

“When reading the script, there were scenes where Yoohyun would cry. If it were me, I would not cry (at these scenes.) On the other hand, there were situations where Yoohyun would not cry, but I would feel like crying at. This made the actual shooting difficult. When I was reading the script, I felt like crying, yet I had to express a different emotion during the actual shoot. This is why acting is interesting, isn’t it.”

Even though the plot of the drama progresses in a thrilling way, there were many meaningful episodes that occurred during filming.

“Song Yoohyun works in a hotel, so we spent a lot of time in this hotel where we are at now, The Banyan Tree.  In the corridors of this hotel, we shot the scene where (Yoohyun) first met Kang Hye Jung’s character Moon Hui Joo, and that was a really difficult scene. This was the scene where Moon Hui Joo, who works in housekeeping spills cleaning detergent on Yoohyun. However, for this portion, the “detergent-spilling” scene was shot separately, and it wasn’t Kang Hye Jung, but the director of photography that poured the detergent on me. The director of photography had said with enthusiasm “This is what I’m good at,” (laughs) But the detergent got into my eyes, and it hurt a lot. Furthermore, the corridor we filmed at was really narrow and crowded with staff and actors, over 30 people, so it was really warm and unbearable, and just thinking about it is difficult.

My image in the first and last episodes are different, I hope that you can feel my progress.

For you, this main role in a drama is your second project after “SungKyunKwan Scandal.” Compared to the past, how do you think your mentality has changed?

As “SungKyunKwan Scandal” was my first time shooting a drama, I think the viewers were more accepting, or should I say that due to it being my first time acting so they were more kind and protective of me. However, with my second project, this is different. Although they are fans, the number of people who have a more critical eye on me has increased as well. This means that I feel more pressure. But because I really did work very hard on this drama, so if I were to be praised, I would be very happy.

Speaking truthfully, what is the charm of “Miss Ripley?”

I cut my hair at around episode 11. Actually, I was supposed to cut my hair once I started working at the hotel, but the timing wasn’t right. Actually, I think that I was a little fat when I had cut my hair short previously, and that was probably why my short hair was a failure. This is why I wanted to challenge (short hair) again, wanting to try it out in the drama. I think it suits me better now, what do you think? (Laughs) Seriously speaking, as this is my second project, I was acting with a portion of my mind thinking that my acting skills were still very weak. But acting with this constant need to work harder in mind, I’m thinking, “Comparing the first episode to the last, wasn’t I very different?” I want to show my progress to everyone, and this is what I wish to bring to my fans.
