I recently paid attention to Park YuChun. I think that he is too good looking
GuangZhou Daily: We heard that you really like Hallyu start Park YuChun. Do you follow news on artists too? Do you have other hobbies? In classical music field, do you have any idols?
Chung Kyung-wha: Park YuChun indeed is one of the artists I paid attention to recently. After watching “Rooftop Prince”, the male lead is too good looking, I was totally mesmerised by him. It was like I was under his spell, staring at the television screen attentively. Later only I knew that he is one of the members of JYJ, Park YuChun.
I like visual arts a lot. I would go to the museums or exhibitions at every place I have been. I like to draw too. If I am not a violinist, I might have became a paint artist.
