Park Yoochun recently showed off his fluency in English through MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley‘.

In the episode that was aired on May 31st, the singer-turned-actor intrigued viewers by speaking English in a scene. Playing the role of ‘Song Yoo Hyun’, Mondo Group’s sole heir, he gave a speech at the vice president’s induction ceremony. He was able to smoothly deliver the rather difficult and long lines in English, speaking about his group’s vision.

Yoochun had lived in the U.S. when he was younger, and is therefore proficient in English. He is also fairly fluent in Japanese, from his days of carrying out promotions in Japan.

Meanwhile, ‘Miss Ripley’ capped off a good opening week, registering a rating of 14.3% for episode 2, an increase of 1.1 percentage points from it’s debut episode.

Park Yoochun has returned.

When Park Yoochun made his acting debut through the drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, he was chosen as the idol-turned-actor with the most talent and success and made many disregard the stereotypes placed on him.

Park Yoochun played the role of the handsome, wealthy and smart yet haggard Lee Seon Joon and surprised many with his natural vocalization, despite the fact that it was a historical drama, and his on-screen chemistry with his fellow actors. Being one of the major factors in the success of the drama, Park Yoochun was given the honor of receiving the Best Male Newcomer Award at the recently held ‘Baeksang Arts Awards’.
His second challenge is MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Miss Ripley’. The production is a typical melodrama that centers around a woman whose lies snowball and tangle her in her own web of never-ending lies. Compared to the light nature of his previous drama, which revolved around the love and dreams of youths, ‘Miss Ripley’ deals with quite a heavy theme that requires subtle and delicate expressions of emotions.

Park Yoochun plays the role of Song Yoo Hyun, the perfect Prince Charming of our generation. With a warm heart and a kind spirit, Song Yoo Hyun believes that Jang Miri truly loves him, when she is only using him for her own success, and ends up falling into a state of distress and despair.

One could say that his character differs completely from the haggard image of most conglomerate successors in the drama industry these days. His new character is also completely different from Lee Seon Joon of ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’. This might make it harder for Park Yoochun to fall into his character. He has been given the responsibility to create a whole new image for conglomerate successors.

In the recent ‘Miss Ripley’ press conference, Park Yoochun confessed that he felt pressured about his role as he said, “I felt really pressured by my role,” and “I worry if I’ll be able to express the character well. I thought and worried a lot about acting even after I chose this drama as the follow-up to my first production.”

Regarding the difference between Lee Seon Joon and Song Yoo Hyun, Park Yoochun stated, “The difference lies in their methods of expressing pain. Song Yoo Hyun is a character who always starts off everything with a smile. I think he’ll be a character who is bright but has many tears.“

Many are curious to see if Park Yoochun, who gained popularity, the favor of critics and awards for his role in ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, will be able to showcase improved acting skills while creating a new image for conglomerate successors in the drama industry.
