Having dipped into all types of dramas like historical drama, love and comedy, Park Yuchun again challenged a love drama. In MBC drama ‘Missing You’ that started airing on 7 Dec 2012, he acted as Han Jung Woo who exudes valiant masculinity. Putting aside the actor’s standpoint, as viewers, the expectations were also great. With this work, he would transform once again.
“After ‘Rooftop Prince’ ended, I considered what it would be like to cast off the existing image, then Han Jung Woo appeared. Read the script, my heart was stirred, I felt that with just this role, I could do a 180 degree transformation, the chance to change my role has finally come. Although the heart-stirring feeling and a feeling of burden rushed in at the same time, this role was totally different from my previous roles, and I also had the confidence that I could act it sufficiently well.”
Park Yuchun’s worries about acting are now more specific. By chance, he read the news of the interview of actress Jeon Do Yeon, and his passion for acting became even hotter.
“In Jeon Do Yeon sunbae’s (senior) interview, she mentioned Ha Jung Woo sunbae, saying that she never thought he would stand firm as an actor so quickly. This is a statement that contains many thoughts. How does Ha Jung Woo sunbae differ from me, that he could stand firm as an actor in one go? Seeing a person with good acting skills, I can only admire. How to act that way, how to grasp that kind of feeling….. really very envious, really very cool. I think that, as an actor, if you don’t miss out on your own journey of growth, the radiance will not fade. Even if you gathered dust, just shake it off, stride and walk forward , then you will be able to stand in front of everyone with better acting, isn’t it?”
He himself is very strict towards ‘Park Yuchun the actor’, but he is definitely the acting talent that is currently receiving the most attention. In fact, he was also once in the casting selection for some work that had explosive reverberation.
“If the work that I did not choose becomes successful, I will think ‘this is really not mine’. ‘If I acted in it, it may not have that kind of popularity.’ This is how I myself think through it. Of course, I also resolve to find better works.”
