‘Lucid Dream’ has its reasons for choosing Park Yuchun as its hidden card.
When it came to choosing the “hidden card” in movie ‘Lucid Dream’ (directing by Kim Joon-sung/production by Road Pictures), they decisively were able to choose Park Yuchun and Park In-hwan. ‘Lucid Dream’ is a memory-trace SF thriller movie where Dae-ho(Go Soo) uses lucid dreams to look for his son who was methodically kidnapped 3 years ago, to look for clues hidden in his memories and chases after the criminal.
Commonly appearing in the dreams of many people around the world, it is Park Yuchun who leaves a strong presence with the role of “This Man” in the set-up of shared-dreaming being done. Why did ‘Lucid Dream’ choose Park Yuchun as their hidden card?
This Man acted by Park Yuchun is the mysterious character who suddenly appears in Dae-ho’s lucid dreams. This Man takes off from the scene in haste when he is discovered by Dae-ho inside the dream, and vanishes abruptly at the end of Dae-ho’s chase with him. Dae-ho experiences confusion at the appearance of This Man; and then one day, he happens to come across This Man in the real world. This Man lets Dae-ho know about the existence of shared-dreaming.

Movie ‘Lucid Dream’ will be released. The part people are interested in as much as the fresh material on lucid dreaming is actor Park Yuchun’s performance.
Park Yuchun will be appearing as This Man in movie ‘Lucid Dream’. He turns up in the dreams of Dae-ho(Go Soo) –who tries lucid dreams to look for clues about the criminal who kidnapped his son–. But as a mysterious man who appears in Dae-ho’s dreams, he takes off in a hurry and causes Dae-ho to be more confused. Afterwards he comes to face-to-face with Dae-ho in the real world, and as the person who divulges about shared-dreaming, he is the hidden character in the movie.
At Park Yuchun’s return to the big screen, interests in it were gathered since last year. Although Park Yuchun, who is in the middle of serving his military service currently, could not be in attendance at the movie’s official promotions, the interests in his ability and acting have been amassing.
According to Director Kim Joon-sung, there wasn’t additional editing in respect to Park Yuchun. Director Kim said, “This Man is an interesting character who drifts between the dreams of people who are well-informed about lucid dreaming,” and, “Park Yuchun immersed himself well into the role of This Man. I am grateful to him. I didn’t attempt to make additional edits”.
Director Kim Joon Sung of “Lucid Dream” sat down recently for an interview about the upcoming film with news outlet Sports Chosun. In the interview, he was full of praise for JYJ’s Park Yoochun, who plays the mysterious man that appears in the dreams of lead character Dae Ho (Go Soo).
Kim Joon Sung first revealed that he had initially intended for Park Yoochun’s role to be just a cameo.
“I thought it was a great honor when Park Yoochun joined ‘Lucid Dream.’ He had high value as an actor after he swept distinguished awards in Korea with ‘Sea Fog.’ The production team and I wanted to give such a Park Yoochun to the audience as a surprise gift. Back then, Kim Soo Hyun and U-Know Yunho‘s surprise cameos in ‘Miss Granny’ and ‘Ode to My Father‘ [respectively] attracted public attention, so we wanted to continue [that kind of] effect. But the casting was revealed too early, so it could not be a surprise gift anymore,” he explained.
He then went on to praise the actor, saying, “I had a general prejudice against idols, but it disappeared because of Park Yoochun. Worrying, his breathing when running, and his gaze, the acting was all that of an actor. He shines clearly as the actor Park Yoochun, instead of the singer Park Yoochun.”
The director continued, “Of course, there was the controversy about his incident before the film release, but I wasn’t worried. The points that Park Yoochun showed in the movie were so good, I had confidence that [the film] would not be affected by the scandal. It’s a pity that he could not attend the [press] preview, but he and I both support each other in our hearts. I hope we can meet again in the future with a good character and a good production.”
“Lucid Dream” opens in Korean theaters on February 22.
[PHOTO] 그럴때 있잖아. 분명히 내가 있었던 공간 나와함께 했던 사람들 내가 겪은 일 인데,시간이 지나면서 그곳에 내가 있었나 싶게 아득하게 느껴지고 그냥 꿈이었던 것만 같은거.. 어제 유튜브를 보는데 갑자기 추천 영상으로 쓰리데이즈 메이킹 필름이 떴다. 왜 그게 떴는지 모르겠지만 오랬만에 그시절에 일하는 영상속에 나를 보니 감회가 너무 새로운거야😶 맞아 2014년도 의 나는 저렇게 일하고 있었지. 하루에 세시간 이라도 잘수 있으면 행복하고 청담동까지 왕복 세네시간을 걸려 출퇴근을 해도 힘들지 않고 정말 재밌었는데.. 보구싶다 그시절 우리 태경팀도😢😶
다시 한번 높게 날아오를 수 있길💓
This was the time then. Specially what the people who were together with me and I have experienced in the space where I was, I want to be there as time has passed. It feels like it was far in the past and seems like it was just a dream.. I was watching YouTube yesterday and suddenly I came upon ‘Three Days’ making film as a recommended video. I don’t know why it came up but the memories from seeing me in the video working in those days long ago, I was filled with a feeling that’s so new😶 That’s right, the me of 2014 was working doing that. I was happy I got to sleep even if it was three hours per day. It wasn’t hard even making the commute that took three or four times traveling back and forth to Cheongdam-dong. And it was really fun.. I miss it. And our Tae-kyung team, too, in those days 😢😶
To be able to soar up high once more💓
