JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun may have a soft and warm image, but the singer/actor would like nothing better than to hit up the wild outdoors.
During the December 17 press conference for his MBC drama, I Miss You, Park Yoo Chun was asked by one reporter if he had any desire to appear in a variety show.
The JYJ member responded that he did want to appear in variety shows again and added he probably hadn’t been on a variety show since 2008.
When asked which program he would want to appear in, Park Yoo Chun surprised everyone by selecting SBS’ wilderness survival program The Laws of the Jungle.
He explained, “I normally enjoy programs like that. I like pitching tents at three in the morning, getting bitten by mosquitoes, fishing and eating what we catch. It sounds like fun.”
With SM and JYJ’s long-winding legal suit finally seemingly settled, many have been wondering if it now paves the way for the JYJ members to be able to return to variety shows on Korea’s networks, which they have effectively been barred from appearing in since the legal battles with SM Entertainment first began in 2009.

At the press conference of MBC “I Miss You” on December 17, reporters asked Park Yoo Chun about his opinions on variety and reality TV shows. He responded, “I haven’t been on a variety or reality show in so long. Not since 2008, I don’t think so. I think it’d be different to talk to someone in front of the camera than talking to the same person in private. It’d be fun.”
When asked, “Which variety or reality program do you want to appear on?” Park Yoo Chun picked SBS “Rules of the Jungle.” He explained, “I want to go on ‘Rules of the Jungle.’ I just like those kinds of things. Before I started filming ‘I Miss You,’ I went on a road trip without a destination and ended up sleeping in a tent at 3am. I got so many mosquito bites that night. I also really enjoy fishing. When ‘Rules of Jungle’ first came out, I thought to myself that I’d love to be a part of that show.”
