Famous idols who go into acting often share a very similar issue. The position of the roles they get is very central compared to what their skills at the time can actually handle. Park Yoo-chun showed promise straight away, by managing to carry the role of a lead in his very first work a lot better than what a lot of idols or other rookies manage.
Park’s career in the Korean drama scene started with ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal‘ in 2010. Since then, he has been having a very steady career in this industry and has also made his entrance into movies with 2014 film ‘Sea Fog‘. Park’s strength in terms of choices comes from the fact that he does not go for romance alone, neither do his efforts only go as far as will be beneficial to his career as a musician.
He has done melodrama and he has done suspense, always going for darker works where he can explore characters and evolve his acting, making it clear that he takes his job as an actor as a second career, not just something done on the side. This shows in his acting as well.
As most actors, Park is not without flaws and his performances can sometimes feel a bit too safe and anemic, but fully embodying a character is something which takes experience and work. His basics are good and he engages viewers, which is a great starting point for any performer and something he can really evolve through in the future.
Park Yoo-chun is one of the most promising actors to come from the music scene in recent years. He has shown good sense, the devotion to work hard for this job and promise in his acting. The future will hopefully hold great things for him and for viewers.
