110601 Park Yoochun-Park Yoohwan, Brothers Whose Presences Make Ratings Rise
Actor Park Yoochun (TVXQ’s Micky Yoochun) and his younger brother Park Yoohwan are both currently appearing in MBC dramas, and people have been pleasantly surprised to see their dramas succeed in viewer ratings.
On the 30th of May, Park Yoochun made his first appearance in a modern-day drama as Song Yoo Hyun in MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’.
In the drama, Park Yoochun plays the successor to the Mondo Cruise empire who is kind, considerate and delicate. He is also accentuating his charm by showcasing his Japanese and English skills. He garnered great attention from many through his fluent English during a speech in the second episode.
Thanks to Park Yoochun, and Lee Da Hae’s excellent portrayal of a woman who forges her diploma to forget her past, ratings for the drama were at 13.4% on the first episode and 14.3% on the second episode (nationwide statistics from AGB Nilson), making it the drama with the highest ratings for Monday-Tuesday dramas.
Park Yoochun’s younger brother Park Yoohwan is currently appearing in the MBC weekend drama ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’ as Han Ji Woong(Jang Yong)’s half brother Han Seo Woo, younger by 43 years. As a high school student who has lived abroad and is preparing for his college entrance exam, he has been bringing laughter to the viewers as he acts mature in front of his nieces and nephews who are older than him. Recently, he showed the innocent side of his character when he suffered from a nosebleed after falling in love at first sight with Songi(Yoo Sara), who works at his brother’s publishing company.
Since hitting the 20% mark on the 15th of May for the first time, ‘Shiny Shiny Shining’ has been consistently raking in ratings around the 20% range, giving it the opportunity to battle it out for the spot as the most viewed weekend drama.
