As the year of 2014 slowly draws to a close, with only two months left to go, many entertainment sources are guessing the winners of the annual movie awards, which will be disclosed at the end of the year.
Three young male actors — Park Yoo-chun, Kim Woo-bin and Lim Si-wan — are the favorites for the “best new actor” category.
1. Park Yoo-chun

Park Yoo-chun recently made his screen debut in the film “Haemoo,” or Sea Fog.
Park portrayed the delicate emotions of his character and showed natural acting skills in the movie, gaining higher reputation as an actor.
The fellow actors and directors of the movie were often quoted complimenting his acting.
“Park totally threw himself into the movie, and everyone was able to notice how much effort he put into the movie,” senior actor Moon Sung-keun said during an interview with a local news outlet this month.
Before his his film debut, the singer-actor was often praised for his acting skills in television dramas such as “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” “Rooftop Prince” and “Missing You.”
Group ZE:A member-cum-actor Im Siwan revealed his affections toward Kim Jaejoong.
The production conference for tvN’s new Fri-Sat drama ‘Misaeng’ was held in a conference room at COEX in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, in the afternoon on October 6th; and Im Siwan and its other leading actors had attended.
Im Siwan revealed his affections by saying, “We forged a really good connection,” about Kim Jaejoong who starred together with him in MBC’s ‘Triangle’ that finished last July.
Continuing he conveyed his wish, “I felt that Kim Jaejoong always took care of me like I was his dongsaeng. I want to meet again in a next project if there’s a chance”.
Note: Previously at BIFF Open Talk, Yuchun chose Im Siwan as his acting-idol rival.
Im Siwan speaks about Park Yuchun’s praise, “At that time, I filming ‘Misaeng.’ Amidst that, I received the news and gained strength. I am thankful for that.”
Yuchun said, “I did not know that Im Siwan who appeared in ‘The Attorney’ was a singer. I initially thought he’s an actor. But I heard from Jaejoong-hyung that he started off as a singer.”
**Parts unrelated to Yuchun were omitted.
It has been reported that JYJ’s Yoochun mentioned ZE:A’s Siwan as his ‘rival’ among all idol-actors.
During the recent Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) open talk session, Yoochun was asked a question in regard to whom he considered a rival out of all ‘acting idols’ that have continued to switch back and forth between acting and idol activities. In response, the singer-actor answered, “There have been many lately, so I’ve been watching a lot of dramas from time to time. The one who appeared in ‘The Attorney’? Im Si Wan—I didn’t know he was a singer. I thought he was originally an actor.”
Yoochun continued to compliment Siwan’s acting abilities by sharing, “I had thought of him as an actor without knowing that he was a singer, but Jaejoong told me that he is also a singer.”
Meanwhile, the 19th Annual Busan International Film Festival will continue on until October 11.

Note: This is an Excerp of Jaejoong’s interview with THE FACT: ‘My brother’ Im Siwan and ‘my darling’ Baek Jinhee
“Im Siwan is kind of shy of strangers but as we worked in this drama, he has opened a lot. Because his house is near mine, sometimes he would call and say ‘Hyung, let’s have a drink’. He’s like my real brother.”
They had a lot of scenes together in the drama, so their chemistry was very important. It seems that being close in real life helped a lot.
“Of course! We worked very well together. Im Siwan is the type who only satisfies he fully knows the script inside out and I’m the type who thinks the sense of immediacy is important. So we were on the same wavelength. I knew how to react to what he prepared.” Read More →
