Cold, aching eyes and calm, steady shoulders— Park Yuchun
1986 June 4th
Actor, general remarks: Let’s look back at the obstacles in Park Yuchun’s acting journey. His dancing and singing abilities were already at the top, but for his acting skills, it was a dangerous attempt; if he did not act well, he would be laughed at for “rotten acting”. Ahn Nae Sang, a senior actor who acted with him in his debut drama ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ once said this, “Normally, if ‘it’s alright that I don’t do this’, a person will just leave it and not care about it anymore, but I can feel that Yuchun will spend a lot of effort to understand how to do it.” Park Yuchun is an actor that has both the ernest sincerity of an idol as well as unrestrained performance ability. After ‘Miss Ripley’, ‘Rooftop Prince’ and ‘Missing You’, there is no voice that questions his acting ability.
I saw it right from the start: PD Kim Won Suk (director of ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, in an interview on ‘PD Channel’) said, “At that time, we were discussing to pick one member from Dong Bang Shin Ki; right from the start, Yuchun was being considered more than the others. He has a face that’s pure, transparent and good-looking, his voice is also very good, although he did need the basic training of script analysis. Even though at first when he practised with the script, I felt it was a bit lacking, but he really has an abundance of expressions and is also very talented. Now I am still saying, definitely must let this friend go and act.
Estimated acting fee: TV drama each episode 50,000,000+ won
Plans for next project: Still in discussion for next work, will be decided in 1~2 months; as a singer, JYJ activities are expected to be announced in October~November.
