The actors behind the “Gak-Ha Couple” from the SBS drama ‘Rooftop Prince‘, Park Yoochun and Han Ji Min, are raising eyebrows because of their similar answers to questions about their free time.
The actors have been incredibly busy with endorsements after the drama ended, and apparently, the two plan on going on trips, separately, to finally rest. After the final broadcast of ‘Rooftop Prince’ on May 24, they’re reported to have not been able to relax for even one day. They both stated when asked what they’d do with their free time: “I’ll rest no matter what happens.”
Yoochun is planning to go to the hospital to check up on an injury he suffered during filming. The actor is reported to not be feeling well as he’s been also touring the world with JYJ from the beginning of the year. Management agency C-Jes Entertainment stated, “He plans to rest and revitalize his health.”
The JYJ member will be flying overseas this June on a vacation, and Han Ji Min is reported to be planning a trip abroad in June as well.
