女性自身 (Josei Jishin) is a weekly women’s magazine in Japan
‘Missing You’ will be aired in Japan on DATV from March 28. The 2 leads, Park Yuchun and Yoon Eun Hye, already have a big fan base overseas and just the casting selection was already a hot topic of discussion. The production company said that they have already sold the drama rights to Japan, China, Taiwan. Hong Kong, Philippines, Thailand and other Asian countries. In addition, English dubbing is also confirmed for production, in expectation of export to America and Europe.
[Note: Malaysia is also included. “Missing You” has already started broadcast there on TV9 from end of January.]
Having dipped into all types of dramas like historical drama, love and comedy, Park Yuchun again challenged a love drama. In MBC drama ‘Missing You’ that started airing on 7 Nov 2012, he acted as Han Jung Woo who exudes valiant masculinity. Putting aside the actor’s standpoint, as viewers, the expectations were also great. With this work, he would transform once again.
“After ‘Rooftop Prince’ ended, I considered what it would be like to cast off the existing image, then Han Jung Woo appeared. Read the script, my heart was stirred, I felt that with just this role, I could do a 180 degree transformation, the chance to change my role has finally come. Although the heart-stirring feeling and a feeling of burden rushed in at the same time, this role was totally different from my previous roles, and I also had the confidence that I could act it sufficiently well.”
Park Yuchun’s worries about acting are now more specific. By chance, he read the news of the interview of actress Jeon Do Yeon, and his passion for acting became even hotter.
“Miss Ripley” was just one test; after experiencing trials, Park Yuchun set out with a new challenge in March 2012, through SBS “Rooftop Prince”, he showed his comic acting.
Having started his acting with a historical drama, Park Yuchun in “Rooftop Prince” acted as ‘Lee Gak’, the main lead who adds comic elements in a fantasy historical drama. Through Lee Gak, Park Yuchun’s true value totally shone forth. With just 3 works, he consolidated his status as an actor and also gained fame as a true and worthy lead actor. Park Yuchun did not have any greed, his only aim was to ‘enjoy doing it’, and thus only focused on the role.
“I totally let myself go. Just simply thinking about Lee Gak, and that’s why I was able to act. I did not think about how to make myself look good, just focused on Lee Gak. Instead there were scenes that were edited away because my expression was too realistic.”
At the shoot, he no longer shrunk back. If he had parts that he did not understand, he actively asked questions to seek acting solutions. “Acting in this drama, I naturally merged into the scene. In the past, I used to be anxious, now not anymore. If I didn’t know what kind of feeling is a better interpretation, I would ask without any hesitation.”
It seems that through “Rooftop Prince”, he has only now become a true actor.

Park Yuchun achieved success through “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and appeared in a traditional love drama. MBC TV drama “Miss Ripley” aired in May 2011 was his stage.
Talking about “Miss Ripley”, the first thing that Park Yuchun said was “a sense of burden”. Not sure exactly when but this sense of burden grew bigger and bigger due to pressure and anxiety.
Because this is the second work after the announcement of the birth of a new actor with “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”, Park Yuchun continuously dwelled on “the obsession of must do well” and “breaking through (self) limits”.
In addition, to merge himself into the role of the perfect man Song Yoo Hyun in whom no flaws can be found, he felt difficulties.
“Foreign language, sports, piano, etc all have to be displayed perfectly, that sense of burden was very big. The imperfect me, having to act as the perfect man, it was naturally followed by difficulties. Because of the doubt ‘Can I show the perfect Song Yoo Hyun that the scriptwriter has in mind?’, at the beginning I was very troubled by the embodiment of this character.
