110626 Park Yoochun “SungKyunKwan Scandal vs Miss Ripley”- How Much Has He Matured?

Actor Park Yoochun, in his second acting challenge, has been praised for showing a charm and maturity in his acting that differs from his first drama.

Park Yoochun announced his entrance into the acting world via last year’s KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” and recently returned as “Song Yoo Hyun” the gentle conglomerate heir in MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Miss Ripley.” In his previous role he played a rigid and critical “pretty rich boy,” and swept the KBS Drama Awards ‘ newcomer award as well as the best newcomer and popularity awards at the 47th Baeksang Art Awards, successfully debuting as an actor.

As a singer, Park Yoochun is one of the representative Korean idols, and now he puts his all into acting. After “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” he received numerous good scripts and acting invites but deliberated carefully before picking his next project. Despite being busy with group activities, he found time to study acting and undergo training. Therefore, the actor Park Yoochun in “Miss Ripley” has a more mature and seasoned feel.

As a rookie actor challenging drama for the first time in “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” Park Yoochun had already received reviews beyond expectations. In short, he “has great potential.”  He brought life into the role of Lee Seon Joon, who was born into a rich family, a rigid man who possesses knowledge, manners and is talented in all fields, yet is confused when facing love for the first time. With a blend of gentle expressions and controlled acting, Park Yoochun successfully interpreted the process of growth and maturity in the critical young man.  The audiences and even professionals gave him good reviews. He managed to get not one but two top acting awards for newcomers with his debut work.

Furthermore, in the recent “Miss Ripley,” Park Yoochun plays a charming but firm young man, which is similar to his previous role, but is interpreted perfectly as a distinctly different character. No longer strict, a friendly Park Yoochun displays a gentlemanliness and warmth towards everyone he meets. However, a cloud of mysterious sadness plagues him. His actions show his concern towards his wealthy background as well as the memories of his birth mother.

In a sense, when “Miss Ripley’s” Song Yoo Hyun (Park Yoochun) is compared to Lee Seon Joon in “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” his character seems more complex. Especially in the later part of the drama when Song Yoo Hyun finds out the true identity of Jang Miri whom he loves, the change in his emotions should be one of raw misery. At the crossroads where his fate hangs in a balance, how Song Yoo Hyun’s complex yet subtle emotional changes will be executed is something that people are looking forward to.

Entering into the world of acting through “SungKyunKwan Scandal,” whether Park Yoochun will be able to once again successfully perform with “Miss Ripley” is something to look out for.
