JYJ’s Yoochun shared his experience in his acting debut in the big screen at the press conference for the movie “Sea Fog”. He joined the rest of the movie casts at CGV in Apgujeong earlier today.
“I took the role as ‘Dong Shik’, the youngest member of the crew, who falls in love with ‘Hong Mae’ (Han Ae Ri) at the first sight. Even after the teaser was released not too long ago, I still feel very nervous. Movie is definitely different (than dramas),” said Yoochun.
Despite the fact that it was Yoochun’s first role in a movie, he got a lot of praises from his co-stars and director.
“I think the industry has found a good film actor,” said Director Bong Jun Ho.
“He (Yoochun) has a good attitude towards acting and working as a team. He will be able to continue his acting career for a long time,” said Kim Yoon Suk, a Korean veteran actor who took the lead role as captain Cheol Ju.
“Sea Fog” is based on a 2007 stage play “Hae Moo”, which tells a story about a true story of the Korean fishing vessel “Taechangho” incident in 2001 in Yeosu. The 69-ton fishing boat’s crew had to struggle through a tragic accident while transporting illegal immigrants in the midst of sea fog.
The movie is a joint production between director Sim Seong-Bo and Bong Joon-Ho as the producer. It will be released in Korea on August 13.
