‘You are indeed very fair-skinned’. The comment that naturally came out from the impression of his ramyun CF after meeting Park Yoochun. Apart from that, though filled with curiosity and desire to know, he is currently not yet tied down to a fixed image. As an actor, no matter what work he is getting ready to draw out, he will always give a ‘whitish’ impression. (T/N: clean image i.e.) Between the youthful smile and the manly shoulders, there was no clear definition of the immaturity and maturity. However after the last episode of SBS’s ‘Rooftop Prince’, he is no longer the new canvas that needs to be painted on. Putting aside the portions where he is capable of completing, this new actor was able to create scenes immediately where veterans might not be able to do so. The last scene, incident and story was able to bring upon the future development resulted from the past. Even so, Park Yoochun still remain as ‘white’ and not other colours. The ‘pure white’ thinking he possessed is just like a night of snowfall, it quietly covers up the inadequate footsteps and used its deep and solid power to fine-tune its weapon.
Amongst the singer-born new actors, to grade Park Yoochun’s distinct acting with an objective view, is his way of narrating without the correct answers to convince the judge. To actors, if he is unhappy with the technique after training, it shows that though his acting is of a beginner status but as an actor who takes on the character convincingly, Park Yoochun is one who is amazingly able to find a fast track and understand the theory naturally. Be it in Lee Sun Joon of KBS ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ or Song Yuhyun of MBC ‘Miss Ripley’, he presented the result within the boundaries. With his refreshing acting, the viewers are able to feel the ‘motherly-love’ for these characters even if it forbids the common worldly concerns. Park Yoochun’s acting convinced the viewers and made them acknowledge the improving drama. However to those who are unable to understand this point, the criteria for reviews of Park Yoochun’s portrayal of characters and works, would also definitely be different. Han Ji Min’s comment of “He is unexpectedly a good actor” is obviously a compliment but on the other hand it is also a kind of mandatory game. Overthrowing these prejudices, we will realize there are no ambiguous reviews against Park Yoochun. Agreement or disagreement, it all depends on the person’s point-of-view. Read More →
