PARK YUCHUN – THE SKYLIGHT OF A PERSON
You may not have ever met someone like him: When he is quiet, it seems like all the darkness is gathering around him, when he smiles, all the light in this world is shining on the very same person.
People who like him will accept him all, including his fatty cheeks, and also the “surface of the moon” that even he himself disliked.
Sometimes, he will show his lazy side, but when stretching and yawning he will wrap his upper body up warmly while wearing the slippers for his barefoot, so that it will give him the stimulus of contrast temperature difference. It seems that he cares about nothing, also seems like he cares about a little about everything. So he will turn his all energy into power, moving forward without stop.
See you again as a chaebol
After a long time struggling between “Yoon Eun Hye” and “Lee Da Hae”, Mr. Park finally choose the latter, and he will have to show his acting along with the seniors. Maybe because of his aristocrat aura that writers want to set up an image of “chaebol”, “master”, “noble man”, or any other words that that we can see on him. Whether it is “Lee Sunjun” or now “Song Yuhuyn”, he all benefits from this treatment, to a newbie like him, this is already good enough.
First time when I saw the casting list, I was scared. Except Park Yuchun, no one in the three leading actor/actresses are amateur. I can’t help but feel that towards works, this rookie guy is brave. Normal people, who have already had a good start, will pick up an easy-to-do drama with popular taste, so that they can protect their popularity. In contrast to those people chasing popularity, he chose to learn the real skills that will last long enough for him to perform in this area.
“Before I became an singer, I always wanted to act. When I filmed for Sungkyunkwan Scandal, someone asked me: “Why did you wait till now to decide to act?”. But I feel that, even now, it is a little bit early for me to act.” No one can deny Park Yuchun’s capabilities, on stage, he is an outstanding singer, off stage, he is a flawless idol who knows how to manage his image.
I do not know if Song Yuhuyn is a bad man or not, but for Park Yuchun, this is not an easy role to play. Not to mention other things, this Song Yuhuyn is supposed to be 32 years old, 7 years older than Park Yuchun. So when you see some initial information, you can imagine a story like this, deceiving or being deceived, two men around a woman, one man is tangled between love and hatred, while the other man is a good man like a good rain after the long drought. I do not know among them who will be the final winner and who will be the cannon-fodder, but according to my past experiences, none of them will be ugly (laugh). This time Song Yuhuyn played by Park Yuchun is a full package good guy, he can cast aside himself to chase after the person that he likes, he can often put some thoughts just to have a little romance. In business, he is a charming, witty and humorous gentleman, but at the same time a firm decision maker with unlimited power. (Does this writer know Park Yuchun personally?) This does not say that he is the second lead, but of course, the script can be reversed at the last minute (see “Dream High”), let alone it is not even launched yet.
Originally I did not think that Park Yuchun would pick this project, because in 2010 MBC results did not look good, although there were some hits, but low ratings pushed writers to tears. Now looking at the list of MBC, there are two names that should not be missed, one is Park Yuchun whose drama will start airing in May, the other is Park Yuhwan, his younger brother. We can not judge anything yet, but we can hope that the two brothers can attend the ceremony at the end of the year together.
As long as the road is still ahead, he will not stop chasing
Park Yuchun is very honest when it comes to his goals. Even if the title “artist” today is extremely heavy on him, he does not want to break away from his initial goals to walk another path. “I’m still busy the same as before, carries along with it the burden. From the beginning, I has understood this point, and has always been burdened with such burden, so to me, it is not important.” The burden of being a singer, for Park Yuchun, pales when compared to not being able to see his most beloved mother and brother. Not being used of getting up early has long ago melted in the endless missing of his family, until the missing gradually became his power. Leaving the company that trained him indeed made him disturbed, but seeing the situation now, I feel that it was the right choice. Jaejoong said that he now smiled more than before, Yuchun also said that he was happier, that is it, let’s support their choice.
When “The Nameless Song” came out, I was shocked. In my initial impression of Park Yuchun, although he was not a person to hide his emotions (or to say he himself does not want to hide), but this way of venting his anger with such an upright manner through music all of a sudden shocked people. It’s not that he is the kind of person who does not dare to rebel, it’s just that he has always been regarded as an absolutely lethargic one. Let’s say if you poured a drink on him, he would simply unhappily sweep his eyes at you, then brush off his stained clothes, and slowly walked out of your sight. It’s not that he cannot quarrel, I just feel that someone with a refined life like him will not bother to argue with you. But when other people asked him about his feelings when he wrote this song, he was surprised, or he just simply was not aware that he was getting such a hot attention from people, even one smallest gesture of him could be the next headline, many people are waiting to see his stuck-in-panic appearance, and of course, there are also many people who are looking forward to his success.
Real warriors dare to face their bleak life, moreover, their life has anything but bleak. That so-called case of justice, no matter how the other party was crushingly defeated under the daylight, it did not mean that they would be abide by laws and not intervene in their activities like before. So when the TV directors explained to them the decision to cancel the programs , it was not something too difficult for them to accept, because they have experienced the same situations before. From the first day that they stepped out of that door, they had known themselves that they would have to face this painful situation. But they had not known that this struggle in muddle, would lead to respect and admiration of so many people.
Organizing activities at their own expenses, by now they have been used to it already, however when they see the support from their fans, whatever pain will be cured in a blink of an eye. Park Yuchun has always been a person who treasures hearts, although occasionally he appeared as a carefree one (laugh). When the program meticulously prepared for fans got cancelled, somehow he felt powerless and could do nothing, felt like crying, but actually wanted to laugh at it. He wanted to move forward regardless of all these, but there are always someone who are eager to show off their weakness. All kinds of barkings and shouts are nothing but to cover their inner fears. Therefore, you’d rather pass by them and throw a smile with contempt.“We made up our mind, and we were even prepared of abandoning all the glory we owned. At that time, we did not consider that such situation would happen, but now, despite of that, we still want to leave.” So, being that aware, are there still things to be afraid of?
A fatherly brother
One said: “I regret of posting my bother’s picture, I’m afraid that my situation would bring troubles to him.” while the other said: “I want to become a younger brother that he will be proud of.”, for fear that other people do not know how close those two brothers are. In Park Yuchun’s heart, family is the hardest lock to open. In the early years, he always hid under the covers crying because of homesick, forcing other members to give him the overflowing maternal love. Now his family is around him, he has more things to worry about, for instance when his mother wanted to open an ice-cream shop, or when his younger brother wanted to start his own career, not wanting to live under his halo for his whole life. The broken family since he was small left Park Yuchun an childhood that was not as happy as it should be. A kid stuck between adults became of victim of marriage phobia, and the father in Park Yuchun also had to mature. Children usually have to bear their childhood fears for their whole life, so even now when he has grown up already to become a mature man, we often see his not bright and cheerful expressions, no matter how many pains his heart has to bear, it is his habit that can not be changed anymore.
Originally Yuchun opposed Yuhwan to step in this circle, but eventually failed to beat his brother’s insistence, so he just gave up and let his brother do as he wished. At the press conference, seeing his younger brother spreading his wings from his coverage, a paternally proud smile never left his face. From the appearance of Park Yoochun, maybe many people will not believe that this guy is the backbone of a family, because he seems to “follow his heart” too much. But the truth is, he is not really a carefree person. He has responsibilities as a son, responsibilities as an older brother, and responsibilities as an idol if you want to take it up. “Last concert in Japan, I suddenly thought of something, until when can I keep holding on. First of all, I want my mom, my brother, the fans, the staffs and all people around me to be satisfied, and then, one day, by then perhaps my mom will have difficulties to walk, I want to stay by her side for her.” We rarely heard Yuchun talking about his father, many speculations were made about him, but all ended up in failure. That time when he was awarded, he said while choking down his tears that he wanted to be a filial son to his father and stay by his side, it was one of a few mentions about his father. And when holding on his hand the shining starlight trophy of “Newcomer Award”, he said that his father was watching the TV, his expression at that time was so happy. “My father is sick, so far he has not seen me with my girlfriend. I hope that before his conditions deteriorate, I will be able to bring my girlfriend home.” Whether career or family life, Park Yuchun is currently moving in a good direction. And maybe soon, the actor Park Yuchun will climb on another peak.
