News mentioned that the Korean wave (Hallyu) is experiencing a crisis, especially the most important Japanese market which is being shaken. But there are also a few stars that have defied the trend and is continuing the lifeline for the Korean wave. Park Yuchun is the most representative one.
A Japanese official said that dramas with Park Yuchun in the lead role can sell at US$200,000 per episode in Japan. Besides Bae Yong Jun, the originator of Hallyu, only Park Yuchun and Jang Geun Suk can reach this standard of a Class A Hallyu star.
When the news that Park Yuchun is acting in ‘Three Days’ was released, it created a significant stir in markets from Japan and Asia to Europe; the production company has already received many love calls from overseas buyers; the scale of investment for ‘Three Days’ will be more than 10 billion won.
He is seen as the next-generation actor with the most potential.
It is time to remove the tag “idol-born” before Park Yuchun’s name.
Once a top singer who was active across national borders, when Park Yuchun took up the challenge of acting, many people were prejudiced against him. However, with the successful debut of ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, and after acting in ‘Rooftop Prince’ and ‘Missing You’, he has firmly secured his position as an actor.
Putting aside viewership ratings and public reaction, there is another reason why Park Yuchun’s name is mentioned repeatedly. It is because they who are called “the great masters” have selected him one after another.
After he finishes filming the movie “The Sea Fog,” Park Yoochun will return to the small screen in the SBS drama “Three Days.”
The drama will focus on a president who disappears after shots are fired. Yoochun plays Han Tae Kyung, one of the president’s elite bodyguards.
According to his agency C-JeS Entertainment, Yoochun was attracted to the drama because of its well-crafted script and the possibility to work with the drama’s writer and director. Kim Eun Hee, who wrote the CSI-style forensics drama “Sign” and the hacker thriller “Phantom,” wrote the script for “Three Days.” The director, Shin Kyung Soo, who worked on “Deeply Rooted Tree” was also a draw.
Hallyu Star Park Yoo Chun (27) has been casted as the protagonist in SBS’s new drama ‘Three Days’ (tentative title), said his agency C-JeS Entertainment on the 4th.
‘Three Days’ is a drama about the presidential bodyguard tracking down the president who disappeared in vacation and figures surrounding it. It is a collaborative work of the writer of ‘Sign’ and ‘Ghost’ Kim Eun Hee and the PD of “Deep-rooted Tree” Shin Kyeong Su.
In Park Yoo Chun’s role as Han Tae Kyung, he transforms into an elite bodyguard.
C-JeS Entertainment explained, “After seeing the solid story and good synopsis, (he) decided to take it up.” and “special material, plan of a first attempt, there is a high hope in meeting excellent results” he explained.
A member of the group JYJ, ever since the success of 2010 KBS 2TV ‘Sung Kyun Kwan Scandal’, SBS ‘Rooftop Prince’ and MBC “Missing You”, Park Yoo Chun has established himself as a hallyu star performer.
