Although ‘Miss You’ view rate wasn’t very high, it was able to gather a wide-array of maniac fans. In this heart-warming drama, the main characters reflected their emotions in a delicate way, and ‘Miss You’ also had revenge theme and twist suspense in it. It also drew the process of healing the afflicted characters in a warm way, but also unfold in densely woven storyline of violence and revenge. But such bilateral extremes seemed to hurt the drama as it can drift the attention of the viewers.
The characters of the drama ‘Miss You’ led it to be acknowledged for its exquisite acting performance. Park Yu-Cheon was able to calibrate his eclectic spectrum of acting skills as he portrayed playful guy with a deep, sorrowful inner-side. Yoon Eun-Hye showed her potential as a ‘Mellow-queen,’ as she displayed her intricate tear-shedding acting skills and emotions. For Yoo Seung-Ho, it was a glance from the other side, as he perfectly represented a psychopathic murderer character. The actors indeed made the drama not only a star-studded cameo, but also a masterwork that impresses its viewers.

[NEWS] Park Yu Chun and Yoon Eun Hye made successful transitions as ‘I Miss You’ ends
MBC TV Wed-Thu drama ‘I Miss You’ starring former idol stars Park Yu Chun and Yoon Eun Hye wrapped up on February 17th with its 21st episode on a stable note.
Han Jung Woo (Park Yu Chun) takes the bullet for Lee Soo Yeon (Yoon Eun Hye) from Kang Hyung Joon (Yoo Seung Ho), and laying to rest the demons that have plagued him 14 years ago till now. Jung Woo who left Soo Yeon behind 14 years ago, is able to stay and profess his undying love even when death is staring in his face. The first love couple have a happy ending with a wedding ceremony with them only.
From an overall perspective, ‘I Miss You’ seems to be a drama that plunges the young generation into an abyss of suffering, stemming from a feud from the previous generation, and how they manage to endure and survive, but that was just the take from the television station. But frankly, it was the romance aspect that drew in viewers to watch every Wednesday and Thursday night. Park Yu Chun and Yoon Eun Hye who were idol singers that turned into the acting field, were the factors that made the romance story an important aspect of the entire drama.
# Yoon Eun Hye and Park Yu Chun are unsung heroes
Among the hidden depressing storylines that the drama wanted to convey, the dramatic and fantasy romance was the only storyline that was most touching. The production started the drama with the song ‘Magic Castle’ which Jung Woo and Soo Yeon often listened to as the narration opening. With the words ‘Can I believe? You are the princess trapped by magic in my dreams’, it talked of a prince who wants to rescue the princess trapped inside a castle, and hinted at the situation facing Jung Woo and Soo Yeon.
Yoon Eun Hye and Park Yu Chun also appealed greatly to viewers visually with the romance aspect, more so than the veterans who have meatier roles in the drama. Successful past works like MBC TV ‘Princess Hours’ and ‘The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince’, KBS 2TV ‘My Fair Lady’, and many other bubbly and romantic comedies have greatly endeared Yoon Eun Hye to viewers in their 10s and 20s. Thus, Yoon Eun Hye who has successfully made the transition from an idol singer to an actress was definitely a fit for the beautiful princess described in ‘Magic Castle’.
It’s the same for Park Yu Chun who has managed to show commendable acting skills to viewers while possessing the aura of an idol star through KBS 2TV ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ and SBS TV ‘Rooftop Prince’. Transitioning from the plateau of an idol star into an actor has represented another source of income for Yu Chun, and his acting has definitely satisfied the senses and shown its potential lately.
# The two stars with an idol background have satisfied the fantasies of viewers
Starting from the first episode, the drama was able to portray the emotions from the novel ‘Rain Shower’ written by Korean novelist, Hwang Sun Won. With the beautiful cinematography, the drama was able to carry on the visually appealing appearances of Yu Chun and Yoon Eun Hye, from their teen counterparts Yeo Jin Goo and Kim So Hyun respectively. ‘I Miss You’ was able to transplant the visual appeal of the idol stars into the princess and prince fantasy romance storyline.
In addition, Park Yu Chun and Yoon Eun Hye drew much attention right from the audition stage, and it was much easy for them to get along with each other due to their idol star background.
In the final episode shown last night (January 17th), the ending of the couple with a happy wedding was much tamer than the drama’s opening, and it was probably due to that. ‘I Miss You’ is thus set to be a good example of idol stars who managed to transition successfully into the acting field.
