Just like how the 30s-40s are the heydays of actors, the once faltering actors in their 20s are beginning to exhibit their vigour again.
Dazzling visual is a given, further using exemplary acting foundation, the actors in their 20s who have carved their place in the primetime dramas captured the attention of female audience, thus resulting in the effect of rising viewership ratings. Since the beginning of the year, from Jang Geunsuk, to Kim Soohyun, Yoo Ah In, Lee Seunggi, Park Yoochun, and Joowon, etc, it is expected that the power of the 20s be constantly exhibited.
– Park Yoochun, standing out as an actor, not idol
Park Yoochun (27) who has received the public’s love through SBS “Rooftop Prince”, will meet the audience in November via MBC Wed-Thurs “I Miss You” (Scriptwriter Moon Heejung Director Lee Jaedong).
“I Miss You” is a traditional melodrama that depicts a love story like hide-and-seek of a man and a woman who lives while embracing their wounds from when they were 15 year-old after being robbed of those first love memories. Park Yoochun portrays homicide detective Han Jungwoo, a man who cherishes his yearning for his first love and who turns beastly when chasing after criminals. Yoon Eunhye is being cast as Park Yoochun’s first love.
Park Yoochun embarked on his road as an actor through KBS’ “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”. Winning a Best New Actor award with this drama, and the subsequent MBC’s “Miss Ripley” and SBS’ “Rooftop Prince”, solidified his role as an actor. The upright crown prince Lee Gak time travelled 300 years and arrived today, Park Yoochun acted the completely different daily tasks in comedic manner. Having acted only in gentle and composed roles, Park Yoochun demonstrated his comic acting. Also, his accurate pronounciation and alternating between strong and soft tones are a given, though his exquisite emotional expression are even more helpful to aid the audience to immerse into the show. Especially in the scene where he faces his beloved Park Ha (Han Jimin’s role) and was being honest with his feelings, he played out romantic to the ultimate, and captured the hearts of the audience.
In the end, Park Yoochun once again used his acting and completely eradicated worries like “Would it be okay if he takes the title role?”. Because of this, it is unsurprising that everyone is really excited about the love story to premiere in November in which he takes on the lead role. Just how much will Park Yoochun’s acting improve again in “I Miss You”, let’s anticipate.
