Jung Yunho Receives Praise For His First Appearance In ‘Queen Of Ambition’ And Proves His Potential

TVXQ’s Jung Yunho received positive reviews for his first appearance in the SBS drama ‘Queen of Ambition’.

Jung Yunho made his latest appearance, not on stage, but as Baekhak Group’s next-in-line chaebol Baek Do Hoon in SBS’ new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Queen of Ambition’ on the 15th. This will be his first regular appearance in a drama in approximately four years since the 2009 MBC drama ‘Heading to the Ground’.

Baek Do Hoon didn’t seem so different from the other chaebols we’ve seen in other dramas in the past. He is a college student who is also an ice hockey player for his school’s team and has no interest in running the company. After a fateful meeting with the female lead Da Hae (Soo Ae), a romance between the two was foretold as the typical ‘impossible love’ between a rich man and a poor woman was drawn out.

However, Jung Yunho molded himself into Baek Do Hoon’s character with his own unique charm and is planning to grab the hearts of female viewers. his appearance in an ice hockey player’s uniform matched with his boyish looks to give him a daring and masculine image.

The considerate manner in which he acted around the woman of his interest made Jung Yunho’s character shine brighter. In the teaser video for the following episode, Baek Do Hoon was seen asking Da Hae, “Do you have a boyfriend?” and beginning his advances on her.

The viewers’ reaction to Jung Yunho’s first appearance wasn’t negative. Most of the opinions included, “His acting has improved a lot compared to the what it was before”, “Though he’s still awkward at times, I can’t wait to see what Baek Do Hoon will be like,” and “Baek Do Hoon’s appearance helps the fast pace of the storyline.”

The acting activities of idol stars hasn’t always been successful. This is because it can be a ‘dangerous choice’ to appear in a drama based on a pervious image and charm alone, without much preparation or experience though their acting skills may be lacking as a singer.

Amidst the different opinions that surround acting idol stars, there are some who have successfully shown good results within their acting careers. In the case of JYJ’s Park Yoochun, he has appeared in both modern-day and historical dramas such as MBC’s ‘Miss Ripley’ and SBS’ ‘Rooftop Prince’, and has been improving his skills as an actor through various dramas, receiving high praise from viewers.

Jung Yunho has also put much consideration in his decision to return to acting. During the ‘Queen of Ambition’ press conference on the 9th, he stated, “I hope this drama becomes a stepping stone that helps me become more successful as an actor,” and “I’ve worked on the parts I was lacking in, and I hope to show improvement.”

Regarding this, a representative of SM Entertainment stated, “Jung Yunho does have plans made as a singer, but he is working hard to focus his efforts on his acting for now.”

Though he is one of the most popular idol stars in Korea as a member of TVXQ, the title of an ‘actor’ is still unfamiliar to Jung Yunho. But he has the potential to succeed. With ‘Heading to the Ground’ ending with more disappointment than satisfaction, many are curious to see what kind of reviews Jung Yunho will receive as an actor in his second drama ‘Queen of Ambition’

Girl, why are you raining on YH like that, he's just finally receiving some type of acknowledgement for his hardwork. Why rain on his thirsty fandom? ...

yawang has the potential to be pretty interesting if they don't fuck it up halfway through.
but yunho's acting is still nothing to write home about. he improved from HTTG but that says nothing cause that he was shit there.

That, I agreed with. He improved from HTTG, form of speech is definitely better.
pepper 17th-Jan-2013 05:41 pm (UTC)
SM's PR team are on a roll aren't they? First, IGAB is the next "Bohemian Rhapsody", and now Yunho can act? What's next?

I remember praising article of his acting too when they released HTTG... You can always trust SM's hype machine to be on full speed!

jlie_ly 17th-Jan-2013 06:47 pm (UTC)

He has improved sure but it could really not get worse. He was so awful in HTTG and Poseidon and now he just really sucks.
Yunho I know you want to persevere and keep progressing and I love you for that but some things are just not meant to be.

Blocked. Dang.

I haven't checked out Yawang yet but I really hope he has improved. He was awful in HTTG.

I'm really interested with Yawang's plot line. The ratings weren't that bad either.
bloodyhanie 18th-Jan-2013 12:25 am (UTC)
OP's title almost suck me in and waste my bandwidth but reading all the comments, I have this spidey sense that this article just the same when they (SME) try to hype the flop HTTG...
Anyone watched Yawang in here? Need opinion on his 'improved' acting before I'm start looking for it. How good is he? Or it is just a hype, like always? TQ
