[by Choi Song Hee, translated by Sora Ghim, photo by Kim Chi Yoon] He went beyond expectations. After ‘Sea Fog,’ Park Yoo Chun has more of an actor image now, than a singer. Regardless of the criticism and disbelief in him for acting in a big screen film, Park Yoo Chun proved them wrong.
I always thought he was only a shining star. He’s always been involved with other celebrities who always have a smile on their face, but as soon as we started to work, Park Yoo Chun showed he has a deeper side to him. Even with the start as an idol singer and peoples’ doubt in his skill in acting, he has come to the point where being called an actor is no longer awkward.
For his recent film, ‘Sea Fog,’ bntnews met with Park Yoo Chun for an early morning interview and pictorial shoot.
It started with a little conversation, asking about his health after hearing he was suffering from the effects of a cold, to which he replied, “Just a little [sick]” and laughing lightly. His confidence and quiet manner of speaking showed his ability to calmly overcome any hurdles in his way.
For his first movie, everyone though he would choose a genre he’s good at, such as a melodrama or romantic comedy, so it came as a surprise when he was casted for ‘Sea Fog.’ It seemed like he was prepared to hear this response. He became serious and expressed his true emotions about accepting the role and what he did to make it easier for him to meet the expectations set for him.
At the comment that his choice for his first big screen role considered to be unexpected, he merely shook his shoulders with the reply, ‘I don’t know. I never felt that it was unexpected.” After some thought, he added, “It does seem out of my usual genres. It’s the truth that I was attracted to this heavy and complex production.”
