Through a telephone interview, Park Yoochun’s agency expressed, “At present, it isn’t confirmed that he will act in ‘Attic Prince’ and we have not even had a meeting with the production team yet. Of course this is a good thing, but right now, we are still discussing it and have not made a decision yet.”
Group JYJ member and actor Park Yoochun comes back to TV with SBS’s ‘Attic King’.
Drama department director Kim Young Sub at SBS revealed to Star News on January 10th, “Park Yoochun has been confirmed as the male lead character for ‘Attic King’.”
This marks Park Yoochun’s return to drama 8 months after MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ has ended in July of 2011. Park Yoochun will be playing the role of the male protagonist Lee Gak on ‘Attic King’ to premier in March this year.
Director Kim said, “The contract has not been signed yet but the verbal agreements have almost been reached. The opposite character has not been cast yet.”
‘Attic King’ is written by Lee Hee Myung and will be directed by Shin Yoon Sub PD.
He’s played Prince Charming types before (the noble aristocrat in Sungkyunkwan Scandaland the chaebol in Miss Ripley), but now Park Yoochun is going to play an actual prince for Rooftop Prince, a new SBS drama to air in March.
The story sounds like a fantasy fusion piece, unfolding around a Joseon-era crown prince who loses his beloved princess. He and his trusty vassals skip forward 300 years into the 21st century. How that happens we don’t yet know, but that gives him the chance to meet a woman in Seoul bearing the same face as the dead princess. Insert joke here about how they all look alike? Read More →

In the video, Jaejoong encourages a lot of fans to come check out their videos on the channel and help them gain high view counts. He talks about how the number of clicks reflect the number of their fans, which cause Junsu and Yoochun to crack up controllably over his mistake. Junsu then replies, “Even if we have only 1,000 fans, I’d still be happy!“, a sentiment Jaejoong echoes with the more dramatic figure of 100.
Later, he also posted, “I uploaded this because it’s very funny. I hope that I can keep posting photos like this in the future,” along with a different photo.
