Longing for Mom
“Missing You”, the drama starring Park Yoochun, Yoon Eun Hye, Yoo Seung Ho and more will be aired in the Philippines starting the 22nd of April 2013. One of the most popular local network in the country, ABS-CBN already released a teaser for the drama. The drama will be dubbed in Filipino. For sure, all the K-drama enthusiasts out there are excited to watch this!
I Miss You has just started airing in Japan, but already its popularity is being compared to the Winter Sonata boom that swept the country.
A drama official recently told enews, “Reactions are so explosive that some Japanese officials have been saying I Miss You may become the next Winter Sonata.”
I Miss You is currently airing in the hallyu channel DATV, and will soon also start airing in a main channel. This is a surprising feat considering how Japan has been cutting down on Korean content on its main channels following the two countries′ political strifes.
Winter Sonata also initially aired on cable, and after gaining popularity, made it into the government-run broadcasting station NHK to cause a great boom across the country.
The official quoted a local official to have said that “if I Miss You starts airing on a main channel, it will go the way of Winter Sonata.”
“Park Yoo Chun is very popular in Japan, and Yoo Seung Ho has also been gaining popularity as the next generation hallyu star, while Yun Eun Hye is known through her role in Coffee Prince. Hallyu fans have especially been showing great interest,” the official added.
“I Miss You has even been receiving love calls from America and Europe,” the official said. “Park Yoo Chun′s popularity overseas is unimaginably great. We′re first preparing to go to America.”
I Miss You is a romance that stars Park Yoo Chun, Yun Eun Hye and Yoo Seung Ho.
(11:24 to 12:08) Q: What was your impression of Yoon Eunhye and Park Yuchun?
YSH: Actually, I think it would be the same for anyone. I think they would feel very nervous. The impression you have first without meeting yet… I think you would feel very nervous. I felt like that too but when I actually met them, I just felt like he was a close hyung.
I really appreciated he asked me what I would like when rehearsing for the script. Eunhye noona was just like that too. Eunhye noona and Yuchun hyung said they already met a few times in the past when they were doing their singer activities so as both of them were close, I just included myself in and talked with them too.
(13:00 to 13:43) Q: What do you think of Yuchun as an actor?
YSH: Yuchun hyung looked very cool on set. Because you see, I think the ones who have to make the mood control on set are the actors and actresses. So thanks to Yuchun hyung’s presence, the set became brighter and the result became even better of course. Actually, since the staff is having such a hard time, if the actors and actresses play around first and make the mood entertaining, they can all forget their tireness and have a smooth filming. As I saw that, I thought I should learn all these too because I can’t do such things very well. So I really liked Yuchun hyung being like this and it made me want to learn very much such things too.
