Overcoming his sadness, JYJ member Park Yoochun’s acting shone till the end.
In the SBS drama “Rooftop Prince”, the “Sugar cube” couple Lee Gak (Park Yoochun) and Park Ha (Han Jimin) share an emotional love that crosses through 300 years, and ended on 24 May.
The strict image of the crown prince from the Joseon era, the happy image in the modern day where he works hard to deal with society, and the tender image during his romantic moments with Park Ha, Yoochun displays various charms in his role, showing an even more mature image that helped drive the atmosphere of the drama.
Yoochun’s role as Lee Gak is in harmony with his previous characters in KBS 2TV’s “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and MBC’s “Miss Ripley”, and he, who is well loved by the viewers, has expressed various characters well. With the unique nature of a Time slip, he had to move back and forth between a period drama and modern drama, and he performed both roles perfectly in a fresh and interesting manner.
Also, despite the the difficult period at the beginning of the drama where time was tight and his dearest father had left the world, he held it in and performed passionately, shining even brighter. During then, Yoochun, who returned to the set of “Rooftop Prince” earlier than expected to continue shooting, had thought of the fans, viewers, the staff who were working hard and felt that he could not wait any longer.
In the middle of filming, Yoochun had tweeted on his personal account, with the message “Father, I want to meet you. So much so that I’m going crazy”*, worrying the fans, and recently he tweeted, “These last few days of filming will feel longer but go by faster than any other day. Rooftop Prince is a production that gave me sorrow and joy… and has made me a stronger person,” showing that he has become stronger.
Amidst a busy schedule, he was also faced with the crisis of a traffic accident. Early this month, Yoochun met with a traffic accident while travelling to his shooting location, and said that he felt pain in his neck and waist, but due to his tight schedule, he did not go to the hospital and continued filming, which shocked everyone around him.
Even though he went through difficult trials, Yoochun expressed his own role very well, making “Rooftop Prince” shine even brighter.
