Four years have passed since JYJ member Park Yu-chun tackled his first major role in KBS’ “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.”
To date, the 27-year-old K-pop idol and actor has forged a rock-solid television career for himself, starring as the lead in a string of four steady crowd pleasers, including SBS’ “Rooftop Prince” and MBC’s soap “Missing You,” all of which nabbed respectable viewer shares.
This year, he is poised to make his big-screen debut in “Sea Fog,” a film produced by “Snowpiercer” director Bong Joon-ho, and is also knee deep into filming his latest project, SBS’ political thriller “Three Days.”
With a week till the launch of his newest TV series, Park revealed how he came to star in “Three Days” at the show’s press conference in Seoul on Wednesday.
“I believe I received the first script last summer,” said Park. “The moment I got the script I remember saying that I really wanted to star in this series.”
Of his latest role, Park said, “I am doing my utmost to fully capture and convey the various emotions that my character feels.”
During filming, Park injured his shoulder. Despite this injury, Park has continued filming.
Co-star Son Hyun-joo revealed the gravity of the injury at the press event, saying that “Park Yu-chun can hardly move properly right now.”
Park hinted that there’s much to look forward to in “Three Days,” saying, “There are a lot of high-quality action scenes in the drama. I think it will be refreshing to watch.”
