141003 Park Yoo Chun Talks Acting and Fashion at BIFF Village

[by Nawael Khelil] Park Yoo Chun was invited to share his feelings about his acting career at BIFF Village during the Busan International Film Festival.

‘The Birth of an Actor’ was the title of the corner that was given to Park Yoo Chun on October 3. The singer/actor filmed his first full-length movie this year and impressed both the national audience and the international critics in ‘Sea Fog’ (Shim Sung Bo, Bong Joon Ho). What he showed last Friday was not the top-idol-star side of him (he was in TVXQ and continues his singing career with JYJ) but a mature and honest young actor who is ambitious and down-to-earth.

Park debuted his acting career a few years ago with a role in a historical drama. His efforts led him to a few roles in regular TV projects, from playing a twisted character in ‘Rooftop Prince’ to playing the main character of ‘Three Days’, a zealous bodyguard that will search for the President after a third party attempted his assassination.
He now would like to try romantic comedies. It must be said that his first film, ‘Sea Fog’, is about greed and the subjectivity that concerns a human life’s value. Nothing really romantic here. “I loved ‘It’s Ok, It’s Love’. ‘Begin Again’, ‘The Classic’, ‘Il Mare’, I’d like to film that kind of movies.” When asked about his ideal partner, he confessed “The actress I’d love to film with is currently filming a drama. It’s Jung Yoo Mi, her gentle image looks really beautiful to me.”

Fashion talk now, Park started to develop an interest for clothing as he started to act. Even though his favorite go-to remains slippers, he eventually loves to dress up: “Before, I used to think that I just had to show something new for people to like my fashion, but as I started acting, I realized that I could just trust my own sense. Now, even during my JYJ activities, I always try to compose my outfits by myself.”

The ‘Sea Fog’ opportunity changed his mind on acting. He now would like to focus on this career as it reflects his true personality. “I hope that I will be able to act for many years. With ‘Sea Fog’, I realized and learnt a lot of things. I feel like despite the mistakes I did, I have no regret. It’s a movie that helped me receiving acknowledgement as an actor.” Indeed, even Bong Joon Ho himself praised the new movie star, “Every time I hear about this, I can’t help but feel embarrassed. 5 years haven’t passed yet since I started to act, I can’t really consider myself as an actor so far.”

You never expect such humility from a K-pop star that already has Asia (eventually the World) screaming their name, but Park Yoo Chun is the kind of artist that sets up a line between his various careers, not taking for granted the audience’s love or success only because people like his songs.
