[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.

[Trans] 111206 They Are Indeed Brothers, Even The Passion For Acting Is Similar‏

[Trans] 111206 They Are Indeed Brothers, Even The Passion For Acting Is Similar‏

“My acting is better than hyung, right? (laughs)” (Park Yoohwan)
“Yoohwan’s acting is more natural than me. But his portrayal for emotional scenes are still far on par to mine. Haha!” (Park Yoochun)

New actor Park Yoohwan debuted just 9 months ago with “Shiny Shining Shining”, is currently acting in drama “A Thousand Days’ Promise” as the younger brother of the female lead who is suffering from senile dementia. Park Yoohwan is the younger brother of JYJ member Park Yoochun and Park Yoochun previously acted in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”. On the afternoon of 29th last month, the reporter interviewed Park Yoohwan at SBS drama centre in Gyeonggi-do and through a phone interview with Park Yoochun who was in Hawaii for a photo shoot.

The actor brothers with many similarities Park Yoochun and Park Yoohwan. Younger brother Yoohwan: “We have been busy recently and didn’t have the time to meet.”, and expressed his wish to act in the same project with his brother.

Yoohwan said, “Hyung is like a father to me”, and Yoochun said, “My brother is worth to be praised, I’m proud of him.” There is a reason for such a deep relationship between the brothers. They migrated to America in 1998 but the brothers suffered after facing financial difficulties and their parents’ divorce. Especially when Yoochun returned to Korea for his singer dream, the younger brother Yoohwan who has always been dependent on his hyung, starts to feel the uneasiness.

Yoohwan said, “I couldn’t understand why I had to go through all these issues. And bore grudges towards my hyung who left me. There was nothing I wanted to do and had no confidence to do anything. As I starts to have the thinking of ‘what’s the use of studies?’, I withdrew from school. I was a high schooler then.”

However there was a dramatic change to Yoohwan. One day, Yoohwan followed his hyung to acting classes in preparation for “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and end up falling for it. Yoohwan said, “I found myself through acting. For the first time in life, I had my own dream.” Yoochun said, “Acting transformed Yoohwan from someone leading a dull life with no desire into a very lively person. I used to get rejections from him when I ask him to join me for drinks but now he would initiate to ask me out for a drink.” Yoohwan’s portrayal in “A Thousand Days’ Promise” gained compliments where he was grabbing his older sister who was rejecting treatments while crying out loud and when he endured the sadness and teared while taking care of his sister. Yoohwan then revealed the source for this extraordinary emotional scene, “It was the painful memory when I was young. When hyung came back to America for a temporary visit, I looked at hyung who was sound asleep and upon thinking that we are going to be separated again, I felt so sad and tears just fell uncontrollably. Upon thinking of that situation, I can still feel the sadness somewhere deep within me.” He continued, “The love for noona in the drama is very similar to the love for hyung. During the emotion scenes, I imagined if hyung is the one suffering from senile dementia.”

When reading the scripts, Yoohwan would ask scriptwriter Kim Soo Hyun for advices on acting and take notes of it. In order to perfect his enunciation, he would read out loud for 30 minutes daily. Older brother adored and worried for such a younger brother. Yoochun said, “He would stay up through the night to research on the character. I would advice him frequently that currently it is still the beginning phase, must have confidence (with yourself) and don’t work over painstakingly. But he still overworked himself. Luckily he worked hard in training his body and took good care of his own health.”

Yoohwan recently has been reading actor Michael Caine’s “Acting in Film: An Actor’s Take on Movie Making”. He said, “A quote from the book that left me an impression is, ‘If you have any other plans besides performing, then give up performing right now.’ I don’t know anything else other than performing, thus I won’t give this up.” (T/N: In this case, ‘performing’ refers to acting; a form of performing arts.) Yoochun said, “When I started my activities (as a singer) then, I was bearing the responsibility for my family’s livelihood but I hoped that Yoohwan can break away from the duty of money earning and perform freely (as an enjoyment).”

110906 Unable to Appear On Music Programs, JYJ Turns To Popular Dramas..

[Trans] 110904 Unable To Appear On Music Programs, JYJ Turn To Popular Dramas


Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu, Kim Jaejoong. The trio of JYJ, who split from TVXQ to form a new popular group, have all starred in domestic dramas.

After Park Yoochun wrapped up filming for ‘Miss Ripley’ (MBC) that began in May and ended in July, Kim Junsu made a short but strong appearance in the popular drama ‘Scent of a Woman’ (SBS). And now, Kim Jaejoong is playing the role of Department Head Cha Mu Won in ‘Protect the Boss’ (SBS) and stealing the hearts of drama viewers.

Though it’s normal to see idols taking on a side job as actors, JYJ’s situation is quite different. While other singers appear on music and variety programs while taking on roles in dramas, JYJ can only be seen in dramas.

The forerunner out of the trio who found a way to relieve his stress of being unable to appear on music programs through drama appearance is Park Yoochun, as many already know. Last August till November, he appeared in the fusion historical drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ (KBS) and made his mark as an actor who is sought after by drama producers.

Kim Junsu appeared in ‘Scent of a Woman’ as Asia’s top Hallyu singer ‘Junsu’, who Lee Yeon Jae (Kim Seon Ah) wanted to see before she died. ‘You are so Beautiful’, the OST that Kim Junsu performed live during the drama, drives into the viewers’ ears whenever an emotional scene takes place between the two leading roles (Kim Seon Ah, Lee Dong Wook).

Kim Jaejoong is currently being loved as the creator of the love triangle between him, No Eun Seol (Choi Kang Hee) and Cha Ji Hun (Ji Sung) in the drama ‘Protect the Boss’. Critics have stated that though his acting was a little awkward at the beginning, he is improving as the episodes progress.

CEO Baek Chang Joo of C-JeS Entertainment stated, “As Junsu has already made his mark in the musical industry, he doesn’t want to take on dramas just yet. But Jaejoong and Yoochun will continue to appear in dramas.

The trio have had restrictions placed on their broadcasted appearances since creating JYJ after leaving TVXQ and SM Entertainment in July, 2009. It has been known that SM has been calling for such restrictions as they believe that JYJ entered a dual contract with C-JeS, the focal point of SM’s lawsuit against JYJ. Though the Courts dismissed SM’s exclusive contract suspension injunction against JYJ and C-JeS in February and laid down the verdict that SM must not interfere with JYJ’s independent activities, JYJ have bene unable to appear on the music programs of Korea’s three major broadcasting companies.

Board of directors member Park Jin Hyung of AStory, the production company of ‘Protect the Boss’ and ‘Scent of a Woman’, stated, “Kim Jaejoong was chosen as the first person to approach for the role of Cha Mu Won, and we deemed that Kim Junsu was the appropriate person to take on the role of a Hallyu star in the drama, as well as to sing the OST,” and “SM’s influence doesn’t reach the drama industry, unlike in the entertainment industry, so we were able to cast JYJ in their respective roles without any problems.” SBS PD Nam Tae Jin of ‘Scent of a Woman’ stated, “No interferences took place in the casting of JYJ.”

Translation 110727 JYJ To Release Korean Album This Year

[Trans] 110727 JYJ To Release Korean Album This Year‏

JYJ will release a Korean album in Korea finally. The release date is unconfirmed but JYJ has expressed that “The release is targeted to be this year and is currently in production.”

This Korean album release will be the 2nd album after “The Beginning” release during last year’s October. Upon reporter’s interview, they said, “Although it is good to fix the release date but it is still unconfirmed. This Korean album was prepared in order to thank the domestic fans.”

An interesting point this time will be whether JYJ are able to participate in promotional activities for this album. When the three members sang ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ theme song, Found You, the song came in first place in KBS’s Music Bank but was unable to appear on the programme and resulted in commotion. At that time, KBS expressed, “If it is an official album release, they will be able to appear on the music programme.” To this, CJeS said, “Hopefully there are not external pressure or prohibition this time.”

Additionally, JYJ received the cancellation notice for KBS’s “Jeju New 7th Wonder Wishes Special’ just four days before the broadcast and the representative company have submitted the complaint to the official committee.

Translation 110720 “It Was Impossible For JYJ To Appear’..Because Of Their Lawsuit With SM

[Trans] 110720 “It Was Impossible For JYJ To Appear”… Because Of Their Lawsuit With SM

KBS said, “It will be difficult for JYJ to partake in any non-individual activities until their lawsuit is over.”

This means that there will be close to no chance for JYJ to appear on KBS until their legal suit with SM Entertainment is over.

Meeting with Sports Seoul, a representative of KBS stated, “It will be difficult for JYJ to appear on KBS until the lawsuit with SM Entertainment is over.”

This statement came regarding the fact that JYJ were suddenly unable to perform at the ‘Jeju 7 Natural Wonders of the World Nomination KBS Special Program’ that was held on the 20th. JYJ were schedule to perform two songs for their stage but JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment revealed on the 17th that, “We received a one-sided notification of cancellation four days before the performance.”

C-JeS Entertainment stated, “We received the statement ‘If JYJ perform, it might be impossible for the show to be aired.’” Therefore, an ‘external pressure’ controversy arose that KBS is blocking JYJ from appearing on broadcasted shows. As the representative stated that it will be hard for JYJ to appear on KBS until the end of the lawsuit, the external pressure rumor seems to be somewhat true.

This representative also added, “But JYJ are able to partake in individual activities on KBS,” and “Park Yoochun appeared in the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, didn’t he?”

However, there have been instances in which their individual activities have been restricted by KBS. Park Yoochun was chosen to appear on KBS 2TV’s ‘Kim Seung Woo’s On A Roll’ with actor Kim Kap Soo early this year but received a notification of cancellation the day before filming was to take place. The representative explained, “I’m sure it was JYJ who were asked to appear on the show, not just Park Yoochun alone.”

But when Sports Seoul contacted ‘Kim Seung Woo’s On A Roll’, the representative who answered the phone stated, “Park Yoochun was invited as he got to know Kim Kap Soo from ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’,” and “There was no reason for JYJ to appear together.”

JYJ’s fans have opened up a petition that calls for an official statement from KBS, KBS Jeju and the other sponsors in charge of the performance. They wish for these sponsors to give an exact reason and an official apology to JYJ.
