Today, Park Yuchun let Thai press interview him personally with a fun-filled atmosphere.
Q: How did it feel having fanmeetings in a lot of contries already?
YC: This is the second time I get a chance to hold a fanmeeting in Thailand. I’ve been to a lot of countries in Asia before this. I’ve met with fans in many places. Good memories received from fans in every country. I’m happy I get to hold a fanmeeting in Thailand this time around as well.
Q: This is practically a one-year anniversary of your first fanmeeting here. How does it feel?
YC: A second fanmeeting in Thailand. What I wanted to say to my fans who’ve been waiting for me for a whole year is…. all of you have given me strength. I’ve been to Thailand as a part of JYJ many times, but this time I came here alone. Please give me a lot of support. I often had events in Thailand, so it feels familiar like it’s my own home.
Q: Congratulations on the Netizens Awards and Best Hallyu Actor at the 2012 Seoul Drama Awards from Rooftop Prince. Do you think you’re highly accomplished in acting now?
YC: I’m glad I received Netizens Awards for 2 years in a row. I never thought I would be chosen for it. I felt that my friends and all the fans have given me love and support. That’s way I had that chance. In the past, I thought I wouldn’t have won anything because I didn’t act well enough. When I actually won something, it didn’t make me feel successful but made me wanted to try and work harder to repay for all the support I’ve gotten from all my fans.
Q: When will we get to see Yuchun’s new drama?
YC: Nothing has been planned so far because a drama was just recently finished, but I think there will be another drama soon for everyone to watch before the end of the year.
Q: Out of the 3 dramas you’ve acted in – Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Miss Ripley and Rooftop Prince, which one is the hardest?
YC: The first drama was Sungkyunkwan Scandal which put me under a lot of pressure because I had to do well and not let everyone down. After that, it was Miss Ripley. This one was less stressful than the first one and I acted like I hoped to. The latest one was Rooftop Prince which was a role I’m familiar with. I could act more comfortably and put all my energy into it. I got use to acting and it turned out good.
Q: I’ve heard you wanted to try acting as a ‘schizophrenia’. Why would you?
YC: I think it’s hard to act as someone with mental problems. I wanted to give it a try to show everyone I can do various types of roles.
Q: What would you like to say to all the fans about this fanmeeting?
YC: I wanted to say something about Thailand. My parents like Thailand a lot – the staff also. I wanted to take my parents on a trip to Thailand. Thai people are warm-hearted and sincere toward foreigners. I wanted to take my parents to see all the famous tourist-attractions in Thailand. Thai girls are very beautiful, too. All of my fans, please come to the fanmeeting!
