110807 Which Star Made The Most Successful Idol To Actor Transformation? ’1st Place Goes To Park Yoochun’

JYJ’s Park Yoochun, who has made his mark as an actor through ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and ‘Miss Ripley’, has been chosen as the star with the most successful idol to actor transformation.

The ‘Suspicious Best’ corner of the KBS 2TV ‘Entertainment Weekly’ episode that aired on the 6th garnered much attention for ranking the best idol to actor transformations.

Chosen for the number one spot, Park Yoochun became highly popular for taking on a handsome Joseon Dynasty bachelor, even acting out embarrassing scenes. He then took on the role of a successor to a conglomerate who shows an innocent and pure love to one woman in MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’.

T-ara’s Eun Jung and Jiyeon took second place together. Jiyeon appeared in ‘God of Study’ as a cute high school student who was hiding a lot of pain and recently continued her acting career through a horror movie. Eun Jung played the role of the ‘bad guy’ in ‘Dream High’ and helped raise the popularity of the drama.

Third place went to 2PM’s Taecyeon. Though he didn’t have many lines, he showcased a masculine gaze that fit his character well. Fourth place went to Girls’ Generation’s Yoona, who received much love nationwide from her role as Saebyuk on ‘You Are My Destiny’. Yoona did well in absorbing one character for a long period of time and helped raise the ratings for her drama. Fifth place went to Jung Yong Hwa, who pulled at the heartstrings of his female viewers in ‘You’re Beautiful’.

110804 First Park Yoochun, Now Kim Jaejoong, “JYJ Specializes In Acting As Managing Directors?”

(T/N: To explain the roles that Song Yoo Hyun and Cha Mu Won play in their dramas, there isn’t really an english equivalent but assuming “Chairman” = the guy who runs the entire company, they are probably the “Managing Directors” , ranked below the Chairman but above the Department Heads)

Are JYJ all acting as chaebol managing directors?

In the first episode of SBS’s “Protect the Boss” aired on 3 August, Kim Jaejoong plays the role of Managing Director, and achieved success in term of national drama ratings.

In “Protect the Boss,” Kim Jaejoong plays the role of DN Group’s 2nd Division Planning Department Head cum Managing Director. His character Cha Mu Won is engaged in a rivalry with Cha Ji Hun, his cousin and eldest son of DN Group’s Chairman.

Cha Mu Won manages all the operations in the company in place of the troublemaker Cha Ji Hun, is both capable and handsome, the always gentlemanly “Prince of the Financial World.”

In 2007, Kim Jaejoong participated in the movie “Postman to Heaven” with Han Hyo Joo, and following his role in the Japanese Fuji TV drama “Sunao Ni Narenakute” last year, this is his first time acting in a Korean drama.

Kim Jaejoong, who is starring in his debut domestic drama, collaborated perfectly with Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee and other actors, receiving positive comments from the netizens such as “excellent acting with his eyes” and “Just like a real 2nd generation chaebol.”

Before Kim Jaejoong, in the recently aired MBC drama “Miss Ripley,”Park Yoochun played the role of famous resorts group Mondo Group’s heir and Managing Director Song Yoo Hyun.

JYJ members are continually taking on the role of Managing Directors, earning comments from the netizens such as “They are professional “Managing Director” actors” and “Kim Junsu should play the role of Managing Director once” and other comments.

110720 Park Yoochun Goes To Make Way For Kim Jaejoong! Why Are JYJ Focusing On The Domestic Drama Industry?

Kim Jaejoong is out to dominate the doemstic drama industry following Park Yoochun, who has already made his mark with KBS2′s ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’.

Kim Jaejoong will be playing the role of Cha Mu Won, the prince of the financial world, in SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’ in a love rectangle with Choi Kang Hee, Ji Sung and Wang Ji Hae.

As if performing a baton touch with his fellow member Park Yoochun, whose drama ‘Miss Ripley’ has just ended, Kim Jaejoong has stepped up to dominate the domestic drama industry with a new drama.

Park Yoochun and Kim Jaejoong are already extremely popular within Asia as singers. But we have not been able to see JYJ, a three member group consisting of the two aforementioned people and Kim Junsu, on domestic music programs since the group as formed. Because of this, Kim Jaejoong and Park Yoochun have been greeting their fans through dramas.

Considering the fact that many idol stars are juggling an acting career on top of their other activities, regardless of the fact that they are constantly followed by the ‘actor-turned-singer’ tag, the two JYJ members’ transformation into actors isn’t special at all.

However, one can easily see from their recent unilateral cancellation notification with regards to the KBS Jeju Nomination concert that they face many obstacles in their domestic activities. To combat this, the members are expanding their playing fields through dramas, not music programs, as Kim Jaejoong, Park Yoochun and Kim Junsu, not JYJ.

Thankfully, Park Yoochun has been recognized for his stable acting skills through ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ and ‘Miss Ripley’. Many are curious to see if Kim Jaejoong, who is next up in line, will receive similar positive feedback.

A representative of Kim Jaejoong stated to enews on the 20th that, “Kim Jaejoong has been receiving continuous acting lessons since last year,” and “Though he isn’t taking any acting classes at this time as he is filming for his new drama, he reads over his script diligently and is giving his all for the drama.“

JYJ’s Park Yoochun(25) is currently suffering from shingles.

A representative of Park Yoochun stated on the 20th, “Last week, we discovered while filming for MBC TV’s ‘Miss Ripley’ that he has shingles. Though his face is away, he has hives across his chest and back,” and “It happened because his immune system weakened due to exhaustion, stress and malnutrition from filming almost every day of the week.

Park Yoochun ended filming for ‘Miss Ripley’ on the 18th and has been receiving treatment while continuing with his schedule, which includes filming for a CF. “The doctor said that the best thing for him would be to rest and take a break, but because he already has a set schedule, he is unfortunately completing his activities while receiving treatment.

Regarding the fact that Park Yoochun wasn’t able to attend the ending party of ‘Miss Ripley’ on the 19th, the representative stated, “He was filming for a CF but his condition worsened and he sweated a lot,” and “He really wanted to attend the party but with weeks of exhaustion stacked up and shingles, his body was in no condition to go anywhere. We’d like to apologize to the staff for his absence.”
