“Miss Ripley” was just one test; after experiencing trials, Park Yuchun set out with a new challenge in March 2012, through SBS “Rooftop Prince”, he showed his comic acting.
Having started his acting with a historical drama, Park Yuchun in “Rooftop Prince” acted as ‘Lee Gak’, the main lead who adds comic elements in a fantasy historical drama. Through Lee Gak, Park Yuchun’s true value totally shone forth. With just 3 works, he consolidated his status as an actor and also gained fame as a true and worthy lead actor. Park Yuchun did not have any greed, his only aim was to ‘enjoy doing it’, and thus only focused on the role.
“I totally let myself go. Just simply thinking about Lee Gak, and that’s why I was able to act. I did not think about how to make myself look good, just focused on Lee Gak. Instead there were scenes that were edited away because my expression was too realistic.”
At the shoot, he no longer shrunk back. If he had parts that he did not understand, he actively asked questions to seek acting solutions. “Acting in this drama, I naturally merged into the scene. In the past, I used to be anxious, now not anymore. If I didn’t know what kind of feeling is a better interpretation, I would ask without any hesitation.”
It seems that through “Rooftop Prince”, he has only now become a true actor.
