This is the 9th year FOCUS has been together with the nation.
We couldn’t have come this far without the encouragement from everyone.
Also, many ‘national stars’ who have been together with FOCUS throughout these years sent their congratulations message and expressed their faith in the ‘national newspaper’ – FOCUS.
Let’s meet our third guest, JYJ Kim Junsu who is soaring high as a ‘national musical actor’.
Not being satisfied with what he has accomplished, he continously makes efforts and seeks for new challenges in order to improve himself. He has told us his own story.
Though still airing in Korea, MBC’s Time Slip Dr. Jin and I Do I Do both have already been sold to other countries in Asia.
Following its appearance at the 18th Shanghai TV Festival this past week, MBC announced it had agreed to export two of its ongoing dramas Time Slip Dr. Jin and I Do I Do.
Time Slip Dr. Jin will be exported to Taiwan and Thailand while I Do I Do will be exported to Japan and Taiwan.
The two weren’t the only dramas sold at the festival as MBC’s I Can’t Live Without You will also be sent to Japan while Feast of the Gods will go to Thailand.
From all the dramas sold, MBC is expected to make some six million dollars in sales.
I thought Park Yuchun would be someone who know about his popularity and position. I thought he would be the hardest to become a friend with. I also had prejudices about the fact he was originally a singer.
However, from the first filming on, he showed an explosive affinity. Not only me, but also to the other staffs, actors and actresses, he approached intimately. And seeing this, I thought to myself that I thought wrong. He worked hard to the extent of not making one think of him as a singer because his feeling as an actor was strong. And that’s why I am thankful to him.

Anyone would think that Park Yoochun and Han Ji Min look good together in Rooftop Prince. It looked like a picture of two pretty and good-looking people standing side by side. The two of them made the viewers even more immerse in the romance of Lee Gak and Park Ha in the drama.
In reality, the two of them have a relationship of noona and dongsaeng with an age gap of four years. They met for the first time through this drama. Through the past four months, they have grown closer as they went through thick and thin together. Park Yoochun followed Han Ji Min as a noona and a sunbae, while she took care of him. The two of them showed a warm relationship, as they grew closer together. Among the production crew of Rooftop Prince, they were the ones who had the most number of reports about rumours of their romance.
“I also think that I look good together with Han Ji Min.”
JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun is getting a lot of attention thanks to his shoulders.
An online community posted pictures of Park and received considerable attention by giving Park the nickname the ‘Pacific Shoulder.’
In the pictures, Park looks handsome in a brown cardigan. His broad shoulders make his face look even smaller and inspire the admiration of many people.
People responded: “You have the best shoulders.” “He has the Pacific shoulder.” “I wonder what kind of exercise he does.” “The hanger is more important than the clothes.”
Park previously appeared on SBS’s series Rooftop Prince, which recently went off air.
JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong knows the meaning of ‘practice makes perfect.’.
On June 14, the production crew for MBC’s weekend series Dr. Jin released pictures of Kim, who plays the role of an officer named Kim Kyung Tak, practicing for the series on the set.
In the picture, Kim is wearing traditional clothes for the series and is practicing martial art during the break.
The production crew says, “Since Kim is appearing on a historical series for the first time, he is practicing hard on how to speak, martial arts, and riding horses.”
The crew added, “He is doing rehearsal like a real take for the action scenes well.”
Handsome’ and ‘cool’ are not enough to describe him. He changes the air around him and mental destruction is when you make eye contact with him.
He’s got this special aura about him. He laughs, plays jokes and doesn’t care about what’s around him. He is so unrealistic.
