25August2014 [FAN] My Discovery Journey with Park Yoochun


MY DISCOVERY JOURNEY WITH PARK YOOCHUN

I have been a silent reader of PYCSGFC (both facebook and website). I have enjoyed visiting these sites daily and always marvel at fans or Chunsas (though I am sure of what that means 🙂 ) having the courage to pen down their feelings and thoughts.

I am not good at writing but there is this urge in me to tell my story of how a certain individual has influenced my outlook in life..

Is this fate?

I first watched(?) Rooftop Prince in 2012. I had a surgery and was house bound. My husband bought 2 K-dramas me to “kill time” at home. One was the Ojakgyo family and the other was Rooftop prince.

When I started watching Rooftop prince, I did not enjoy it..i blamed it on the fact that the quality of the DVD was not good and it was continuously disrupted. I stopped and kept the DVD sitting in my cupboard for another year.

Sometime in Dec last year, I was on a long vacation. I kept staring at Rooftop prince DVD and told myself.. OK…let’s try again and I went to the stores to purchase a 2nd set of better quality.

Part 1: YOOCHUN THE ACTOR

That BEGAN my amazing discovery Journey with a certain prince who captured my attention BIG time. I do not how to describe the feeling.

Yoochun was not the best looking person in rooftop prince (at least not to me!) BUT there is something about him that catches your attention. I was attracted to his acting and actually his eyes!. He was able to portray the character so well and I could actually feel for Lee Gak.

Who is this person??..

I was curious and started to look for his other projects

Sungkyunkwan Scandal was the next Drama which I watched and I was completely blown away thereafter. Now I find him ATTRACTIVE, GOOD LOOKING and his eyes speaks volumes. I was completely sold and obviously till today.

I have watched all his projects and he improves by leaps and bound each time. I kick myself for not discovering him earlier!.. To be exact, HE was in my cupboard!

He is inspirational

a) Love and relationship

The more I read about his life and his struggles, the more I respect him and yearn to be strong as him. His love for his family and tight relationship with his members (JYJ) has been very inspirational for me. There are many instances which I take things for granted and always believe that there is time to show love to family and friends. That is not true at all. In a blink of an eye, families can be taken away from you and friendship can just die if one does not make an effort to do more.

b) He walks the talk

Yoochun does what he says he would do..in short JUST DO IT!.

He does not care how others react or look at him. I love the way he comments on why he wears slippers all the time. Being comfortable is more important than thinking of what others may say to you. Being true to yourself is important

c) He is sincere and thoughtful and believes in himself

I have read his interviews over the last 9 months and it is becoming increasingly clear that he has matured a lot (compare to his first years of debut). He is very strong in his beliefs and I cannot imagine how much he has gone through to shape his character now.

What have I learnt?

3 very important lessons;

  • Always believe in yourself and keep the faith
  • Always cherish your loved ones
  • Do not waver once you have made your decision. Do what you say you are going to do

I may have only known him for 9 months but it has been amazing. He is an unpolished diamond/gem. The more mature he gets, the more you will discover how wonderful this person is.

Part 2: THE DAY WHEN I FINALLY MET YOOCHUN THE SINGER

An Empty Space For You (OST from Miss Ripley) was the first song which I heard Yoochun sing. He has a very deep voice and if you close your eyes, you can feel the softness of his voice caressing you. It is very soothing.

You will never forget his voice. It sticks in your mind. I feel relaxed when I listen to his songs. Someone once said that his voice is like honey that slides down your throat. I could not agree more. He is so multi-talented. I sincerely hope that he will release his solo album one day. It will be a shame to not let others hear his voice.

I thank Yoochun for introducing me to JYJ. Needless to say, now my entire mobile phone is filled with their music and songs.

I finally had the opportunity to attend their concert!.. I am very very lucky to be able to purchase the tickets for the concert in Seoul.

Yoochun On stage

Forget the actor Yoochun. He is like a different person!.

He exudes charm, passion and sexiness on stage. I was mesmerized. He connects with the audience by just his voice and when he looks at you, you will not be able to look away. It is as though he sings to you and you alone. If you ask me what is his biggest asset, I would vote for his eyes. He speaks to you through his eyes

You may think that I was sitting very near the stage but I was not. Sitting in Jamsil stadium and listening to him live is one extraordinary experience which I will never forget. He need not dress sexily on stage. He has loads of charm and very flirtatious if he wants to. For those who think he is chubby, you are wrong. He is just right

JYJ= Just US

When JYJ performs their voices are so well harmonized. I now fully understand the power of ONE and their new album is aptly named JUST US. They are indeed the kings. I pray for their success and many years of friendship and togetherness.

My thoughts

I started writing by saying that this is a discovery journey with Yoochun. I have been very blessed to have this opportunity and the journey does not end here. Since knowing him, I have found myself praying for him every day for his health and happiness and I wish him every success.

Last but not least, I ask myself this question: Am I a Chunsa? Maybe if I know the true meaning of it, I will say yes.

  1. @beanie,welcome to the club. Like you, I was mesmerised by Yu Chun. Yes, I wrote that his voice is like honey sliding down your throat. It felt that way, the first time I heard his voice in ” Miduhyo”. Especially the narration at the beginning and the end. And he was only 17 or 18 years old then. Manly voice.

    But Yu Chun is more than his voice. He is more than his acting. He himself recognised that when he said so recently. He is Yu Chun the person , we have all come to recognise. The reason we love him. Infact to me, he is like family. It doesn’t matter he doesn’t know I exist. Suffice that I love him from afar.

    I too was fortunate to be able to see him in Jamsil Stadium. The thought and vision of him “sharing the same sky as me” in that stadium left me a special feeling. No, no,I didn’t think he was a god. But the reality hit me that here is a fellow human being, young as he may be, empowering many by his life example. And giving happiness to many others by sharing his talents in singing and acting.

  2. Hi @beanie, I enjoyed reading your discovery journey with Yuchun..He is a very interesting and attractive person. He has many good inner qualities in addition to his physical qualities. Sometimes, I find him a paradox too. Besides his eyes, his beautiful smiles always cheer me up.

  3. @beanie:

    Are you a Chunsa? I am 100% sure that you are! This – “Since knowing him, I have found myself praying for him every day for his health and happiness and I wish him every success.” That’s a Chunsa right there! Yuchun’s angel (cheonsa). 🙂

    I laughed out loud at this: “To be exact, HE was in my cupboard!”

    Like you, it was also in Rooftop Prince that he got me curious. So I went into SKKS like a very curious cat and bahmmm! He totally had me at IBUSHIO! That was only last year too. Sigh. It feels like I’ve known him for a hundred years now.

  4. Hello everyone:
    I am glad that we all share the same interest. It took me a while to put together my thoughts and have the courage to write this.
    @CHUNworm: thank you for explaining the meaning of Chunsa….Yuchun’s angel!. am proud to be one of the many.

  5. @Chunworm, Ha ha ! I couldn’t stop laughing whenever I read your ” IBUSHIO ” ! t never fails to amuse me. Because that “excuse me” ( or calling for attention) was so insignificant to me . And it was in the beginning stage of Episode 1 too.

    If he can ensnare you so early in the drama, you are in deep trouble !

    It took me 4 full episodes of SKKS, grumbling and cursing at the director for casting a “not-handsome-can’t-act” punk as main lead, until his charm began to enfold from Episode 5 onwards. I was like the proverbial frog in slow boiling water. I had no idea Yu Chun’s charisma was slowly growing on me from Ep 1 to Ep 4 until it was too late.

    After Ep 5, my whole life changed. The rest is history.

  6. “If he can ensnare you so early in the drama, you are in deep trouble!” @Yc Love, I think that may have been because I was already the proverbial boiling frog at “Ibushio” haha! You see, I started out with Rooftop Prince. It was so subtle for me I had no idea I was getting in too deep. It was like, when he shouted Ibushio, I was jolted out of my daze. But it was too late by then, I was a goner. Haha!
