JYJ’s Yoochun talks about his role in ‘Rooftop Prince’

JYJ‘s Park Yoochun recently sat down to talk about his character in his new SBS drama, ‘Rooftop Prince‘.

On March 30th, he spoke to C-JeS Entertainment, stating, “When I’m at the drama film set, I don’t really have the time to check the reactions so it’s hard to get a feel of how my character’s being received. Everyone at the company told me that I received a good response so I felt really great about that.”

He continued, “There’s a bit of pressure in having to live up to expectations, but I want to pay back the support I’m receiving by focusing on my acting with each new episode, and presenting good skills.”

Yoochun plays the role of Lee Gak, a charismatic young man with a soft heart when it comes to love. After losing his wife the Princess, he wakes up 300 years later in 21st century Seoul. He stated, “Lee Gak is in a very sad predicament right now. He’s in a really big crisis, so I hope that everyone will understand and support the prince!”

A representative of the drama also expressed, “The character is a bit detached from reality so that was one of our main concerns. Fortunately, Park Yoochun’s natural acting skills has helped viewers focus on Lee Gak’s situation at hand.”

The drama is off to a great start, and Yoochun’s character is already melting the hearts of everyone from elementary school students to those in their 40s and 50s!
