Synopsis
Based on true events, the story is about a large 69-ton fishing boat’s crew as they attempt to smuggle in illegal migrants in order to keep their fishing jobs. But their plan goes wrong when they meet a tragic accident while transporting the thirty or so illegal migrants on the ship amid a heavy sea fog. And amid the chaos, the youngest crew Dong-sik tries to protect a young female migrant who he falls in love with against the crazed Captain Kang and other crew members.

Director’s Comment
Based on a true event that took place in Yeosu, 2001, HAEMOO is a combination genre film that fuses crime thriller and melodrama. Ordinary fishermen face moments of hell as they take on the role of smuggling illegal Korean-Chinese migrants. Stuck in thick sea fog, I wanted to portray the innocence and personal sacrificial love that rise from clashing of this generation’s pain, human desire, human desire and morality in a moment of grave adversity.

[News] 140806 Park Yoochun Talks About Unconditional Love and Envying His Character in “Sea Fog”

yoochunshanghaifanmeet5

JYJ member and actor Park Yoochun touched on the subject of love during a recent interview about his latest film “Sea Fog.”

On August 5, the star sat down with news outlet Asia Economy to talk about his thoughts on the movie. He began by confessing, “Dong Sik, who I play in ‘Sea Fog,’ is very naive. He is the type of person that I have always admired.”

“Since the beginning of middle school, I have earned money by myself. I have carried the responsibility for my life since then, and seeing Dong Sik take care of his grandmother and work hard jobs, I noticed similarities between Dong Sik and myself,” the talent continued.

“Although me and Dong Sik share a number of traits, we are still very different. I like his way of taking rapid action thanks to his simple way of thinking and his way of pushing forward with his plans. I envy him, and I think our era needs people like him. There are not many people like Dong Sik, I think,” he confessed.

“‘Sea Fog’ is a movie that the current era needs. It shows pure and innocent love that you do not see in our modern society,” the actor said, and revealed his yearning for unconditional love, “Nowadays, people consider the terms before looking at the person, but Dong Sik and Hong Mae (Han Ye Ri) love each other unconditionally. I miss that kind of love, and I am jealous of them.”

“Sea Fog” starring Park Yoochun premieres on August 13.

‘Sea Fog’ is the story of six sailors who come across a boat of stowaways on the high seas, spiralling them into a situation they could have never imagined. Park Yoochun plays the role of Dong Shik, the youngest crew member of the ship who falls in love with Hong Mae.

Kicking off his acting career in the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, Park Yoochun has taken on a variety of roles in ‘Miss Ripley’, ‘Rooftop Prince’, ‘Miss You’ and ‘Three Days’, and has been recognized as a talented actor. His chemistry with Kim Yoon Seok in ‘Sea Fog’ is one of the most-awaited partnerships of the year.

Park Yoochun stated, “The other actors were completely focused on researching their characters, even when they weren’t filming anything. Their gazes were intense at every moment. During the entire filming process, I saw them as the crew of the ship, not as actors.” Director Shim Sung Bo expressed his satisfaction with the actor as he stated, “Once I met Park Yoochun, I knew that no other actor could measure up.”

Bong Junho said, “I’m very happy about the fact that the movie industry has gained such an amazing actor,” while Kim Yoon Seok said, “Though we’ve never met before, we got along like a duck to water, and now, he feels like family.”

He continued to explain, “We were required to shoot an action scene in a small space, and the entire inside of the boat was made of metal. He kept banging into the walls as he moved around, but he didn’t make a single complaint and waited till we were done filming to get his injuries treated.”

Kim Yoon Seok continued with his high praise for Park Yoochun by saying, “He’s extremely sincere about his acting, and I think he’s going to have a long and bright career as an actor.”

[TRANS] 140610 Woman Who Threatens Park Yoochun With Personal Information Leak Is Given A 10 Month Prison Sentence

chunnielawsuitjailforculprit

A woman in her thirties who threatened to leak information about the personal life of JYJ’s Park Yoochun (28) has been given a prison sentence.

On the 10th, Judge Han Sung Soo of the Seoul Central District Courts sentenced Ms. Kim (30) to 10 months in prison.

The courts stated, “The damages amounted to 100 million Won and the two sides did not reach a settlement,” and “The nature of the crime is severe as the defendant deceived the victims, and negatively affected the image of the celebrity and entertainment agency.”

However, the Courts did take into account that the defendant returned the money she took, as well the fact that the details of what was saved on the mobile phone device in question were not released.

Last February, Ms. Kim found the mobile phone of one of Park Yoochun’s close acquaintances in front of a building in Chungdam-dong. She then called Mr. Park and his agency and threatened to, “Release the pictures and texts saved on the mobile phone.”

Ms. Kim met with the owner of the mobile phone, who was a manager in Mr. Park’s entertainment agency, and demanded 100 million Won in return for not releasing any of the information contained on the device. Ms. Kim was soon caught after receiving the money, and was handed over to the Courts to be tried for her crimes.

[TRANS] 140604 Park Yuchun Fanmeeting Housewarming Party in Seoul – Kim Jaejoong’s Birthday Message

jaeyoochunbirthdaymessage2014

Until last year’s birthday, I still thought as before, another year has just passed. Ah~ time flies so fast. Every birthday, aside from saying Happy birthday or I love you, I actually can’t do anything special for you~ However, I think the fact that we send congrats messages to each other is very meaningful (Yoochun butting in: “self-justification”) Every time I receive or send a message, I also gain much strength. So, even if it’s just a short message, I hope it can make you laugh out loud. (Yoochun: “I feel like that hyung is acting” [laughs]) I also hope that it can make you moved. (Yoochun butting in again: “His acting is going too far whoa~”). Is there anything that you want? Hyung will buy for you (Jaejoong’s way of talking is very funny, the audience burst out laughing). If you don’t want something very very very expensive, if it’s something reasonable, I’ll buy for you. And also… (Yoochun: “Why so long??!?” The audience burst out laughing) I know you must be with your fans now but… Yoochun ah, in Hug days, you had bowl hairstyle (Korean fans calls it “apple” hairstyle). At that time, you only satisfied when you got your hair puffed up as high as 2 knuckles. There were times like that (Everyone burst out laughing again). You should show that cheerful image to your fans in front of you, show them funny reactions. And have a good time~

Editors Note: Happy Birthday Yoochun 2014

jyjrelaychunniedocumentarysiamesetwins

It’s a wonderful thing! Micky Yoochun is celebrating his 28th birthday with Korean fans, friends, and family. It’s been a long haul from debut to now for Park Yoochun aka Micky Yoochun. Probably one of the less obviously gregarious members of both DBSK and JYJ, Micky is an intense, sensitive, talented pianist, composer, singer, and actor. He is a loyal friend to those he chooses to include in his inner circle, and a born leader. Yoochun leads behind the scenes through the ability that he has to influence others. This influence is a reflection of his heart reaching out to others, and their response of trust. There isn’t much pretentiousness in this man. I admire his honesty and integrity, and that part of him that reveals the injustices. Micky will tell you in word or action when he’s had enough, and there is no going back. Twitter is a prime example. When he was through, he was through.

On a personal note: Yoochun, you can be shy and reclusive at times; yet this serves well to allow you rest time. You need to keep your energy reserves up, and it is wise not to allow people’s expectations to dictate your lifestyle. Public work, whether as an entertainer or other form of public servant is demanding and tiring. You tend to pour your all into everything you feel passionate about, but if you don’t–oh well…you are notoriously famous for ignoring people’s outrageous demands.

I believe that you can accomplish anything you put your effort into. You are the most remarkable actor. You make your characters come to life. I forget that it’s you, thus high praise and kudos indeed. Your latest drama, ’3Days’ displayed you at your finest. You made us proud.

This ten year span has yielded great rewards as well as heartaches for Yoochun, whether as a member of DBSK, JYJ, an individual artist, or a devoted son. A lot of support has come from his family and team members; and I believe from fans and supporters as well. I sincerely want to see Micky continue to achieve and to grow. I believe that he is an ethical person, and I pray that his choices will always reflect that part of him whether as a member of JYJ, or as an individual influencer and achiever. I hope the best of life, peace and joy will always be there for the person of Park Yoochun.    :)   <3
