Music & Acting:
“Even if I release a solo album, I want to include one or two pieces of music or songs and essays etc; I want to present it in a slightly special way.”
Park Yuchun mentioned in passing that his works gave him the opportunity to meet colleagues who are like friends. With Han Ji Min from ‘Rooftop Prince’ and Oh Jung Se from ‘Missing You’, they talk like there is no need to rest to take a breath. Seems like these 2 persons are a special existence for Yuchun.

Epitone Project’s ‘Let’s Go’:
The song Yuchun listens to when feeling sad: Epitone Project’s ‘Let’s Go’.
“Let’s go! Let’s go for a walk, walk towards those distant days somewhere, when we once laughed.
When I’m sad or depressed, I will listen to Epitone Project’s ‘Let’s Go’. I like Epitone Project’s style of music. Although it is about love, it makes you think of the time when you were young and had no worries, and so I like it.”

Crew Cut [hairstlye]:
Looking at what some keywords are for Park Yuchun
After ‘Missing You’ ended, he suddenly got a crew cut; not only the colleagues in the company, even fans were shocked. But because fans said even the shape of his head is beautiful, he was very happy. Asked him why he did that, his answer was very innocent and childlike. Because by chance he saw a photo of Wentworth Miller from American series ‘Prison Break’; and he also had the idea of cutting it fresh and short.
People around him tried to stop him from getting a crew cut, but when he appeared a little later, all his hair was gone. “It is not that I have to go against the majority. I might face some opposition but I also wish that people would respect my opinion. I have my philosophy and thinking to make decisions based on different circumstances. Ah! When I wanted to get a crew cut, in my heart, I measured the benchmark if that could be done.

Memories of Winter:
5 months ago, when Yuchun was filming ‘Missing You’, he was most afraid of the severe cold. But he said it must be correctly said this time, it is more accurate to say that he hates filming in winter.
“‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’ also was shot until the end of November and I thought I was going to freeze to death, not to mention filming in the depths of winter… it felt like we were filming in the Antarctic. Once we were filming outside Soo Yeon’s house from where the Han River could be seen, the temperature seemed to have dropped to minus 20 degrees. It was a scene where my feet were sticking out and I had to walk in the cold, once I heard ‘Cut’, I yelled ‘Ahhh’ because it was too cold.”
On the other hand, his memories of winter have an artistic feel.
“I like winter. It seems I can say that all the things that come to mind when you think of winter, I like them all. Mountains covered by endless snow, the scene of sunrise, the gurgling stream breaking through the ice and flowing on, ski slopes that can be skied down in a refreshing manner, warm fish soup, windows covered with mist…”

Excerpts from Yuchun’s Interview
In retrospect, I’ve got really big achievement while acting every moment to feel that is interesting. No matter what challenging, I wanna act without fear.
Personally, I wanna grow old like Masaharu Fukuyama. not pressed for work, got family, and good acting. I wanna be an unaffected singer even if that music isn’t outstanding, (omitted) and even for me, if ‘melo’ happened to me, cause my life has only just got golf or documentary channel. haha!
Q: What is melodrama acting?
A: It’s challenging. that trauma doesn’t go with this word(T/N:a challenge) melodrama is things I wanna try and also one of the genre for my wish while growing old. at that time maybe I’ll get my variety of looks that I can compare my another worlds.
When shooting set was enjoyable, it also had a synergistic effect.
It’s the best to act, as an actor.
While he takes out ShinSegae (New World) DVD, Yuchun replied. “Although I become 40 years old, I wanna be an actor like them (T/N: Lee Jungjae and Choi Minsik, etc.) like as they can in depth acting.”
“I may not always forced my way unconditionally. some people may oppose me but I hope they respect my opinion. In making my decision, I have my philosophy of working things out.”
I wanted to play Han Jungwoo cause he has agonizing recollections of his first time in love. I thought I could see closeness in appearance between Jungwoo and me. other character in other work does but Jungwoo was extra special.
