Park Yoo Chun goes from Sensory Couple to military duty
It's been a great year for JYJ's Park Yoo Chun (Sensory Couple), but the countdown to his entering the Korean military service has begun. (The cute cover photo of Park in uniform is from his popular drama I Miss You.) Find out when he is going and more.
Park Yoo Chun is scheduled to enter the Korean military service on August 27. Although we will miss him very much, the actor can enter the military with great pride and a smile, having accomplished a lot just this year.
In May he successfully completed Sensory Couple (aka The Girl Who Sees Smells.) The unusual plot and his lovely pairing with Shin Se Kyung have made the drama a hit, holding its #1 position on the DramaFever's Top 10 list for weeks. The latest news is that the drama is also getting high ratings in China.
During the 51st Baeksang Arts Awards held on May 26, Park Yoo Chun received the Best New Actor award. It is the 9th honor he's received for his stellar performance in Haemoo (Sea Fog), the acclaimed movie which was also submitted by South Korea as an entry to the Oscars.
I hope Park Yoo Chun will get a nice vacation before his military duty. On the other hand, the multi-talented singer-actor is known to stay very busy. It is also expected that he will hold one or more fan meets to say farewell to his adoring fans.
With Park entering the military after Kim Jae Joong, who already entered on March 31, their singing group JYJ is left with only Kim Junsu. Will Junsu be next?
