JYJ’s Park Yoochun couldn’t overcome the barrier imposed by MBC Entertainment.
The network’s entertainment news program, “Section TV Entertainment News” has been revealed to have also snubbed coverage of Yoochun’s new drama, “Ripley“, right after they cancelled his appearance on the variety show, “Come To Play” not too long ago.
On May 17th, reporters and members of the press gathered at the production conference for “Ripley”. However, reporters from “Section TV Entertainment News” did not appear, which is highly unusual since this news program always appears at drama production conferences.
A representative from the program stated, “We had too many items on our hands“, but members in the entertainment industry are accusing MBC Entertainment for minding the uncomfortable relationship between Yoochun and SM Entertainment.

On May 17th, MBC’s new drama “Ripley” held its production conference at the Banyan Tree with lead roles Kim Seung Woo, Lee Da Hae, Park Yoochun, and Kang Hye Jung in attendance.
As it’s his second drama, Yoochun was asked to explain the difference between his role in “Ripley” and his role in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.”
He answered, “Well, I’ve gone from wearing hanbok to suits now… I think the way the two characters express pain is different. Unlike ‘Lee Sun Joon’, my character in ‘Ripley’ starts everything with a laugh. He’s always smiling, but it only takes a moment for him to begin shedding tears.”
He continued, “There was definitely a lot of pressure, and even after I decided to take the role, I was still worried over whether I’d do well. One of my greatest concerns was how the viewers would perceive me, especially since they thought well of me with my previous work. Everyone treats me so well at the recording so I’m able to take part in it comfortably now.”
[News] Kim Seungwoo, “What did I do at [Yuchun]‘s Age?”
Actor Kim Seungwoo attracted attention by praising actor-transformed Yuchun.
At the “Miss Ripley” press conference held on the 17th in Seoul Joonggu Jangchoong-dong Banyan Tree Hotel, Kim Seungwoo stated, “after seeing Yuchun, I wondered about what I did at that age. He is a self-confident actor.”
Furthermore, he explained “when I saw Choi Seunghyun (T/N: Bigbang’s T.O.P) while filming the movie ‘Into the Gunfire,’ I wondered, ‘how can he be so serious at such [young] age?’ I felt a similar feeling towards Park Yuchun. When you become popular at a young age, you can get a bit big-headed, but he isn’t anything like that.“
