The perfect man promotes his drama in Japan.



100521 Yunho from Magazine "The Television" Vol 20

I would like to challenge simple things in front of me, and would like to improve myself!

Yunho played the reading role for the first time for the drama "No Limit ~Heading To The Ground~" broadcasted in Korea last autumn. He passionately played the role of Cha Bong Gun, who was a soccer player famous throughout the world.

'Bong Gun, who believes in himself and overcome barriers, was a crossover with the previous myself, who was practicing hard to achieve my dream "to sing and dance on stage". Immediately after I read the scripts, I wanted to play the role. I think I was able to advance forward playing the role of Bung Gun. Days have passed after the filming was completed, but Bong Gun still lives in my heart. I would be delighted if the character of Bong Gun would remain in the hearts of those who have watched the drama.'

Under the pressure of his first reading role, Yunho recalls that he was supported by the costars, staffs, and moreover, the supports from the fans.
'Fans prepared food for us at the location place, and participated as the audience in the soccer stadium. The staffs said "You have nice and good fans", and I was very proud. The fans who believe in me resemble my own self.'

Showing his conscientious acting throughout the drama, we can feel the possibility of the actor Yunho. Which are you more interested in, singing or acting?
'My friends asked me "Which will you go on with?" I think that both are the same when it comes to expressing yourself. Singers also act in the range of 3 minutes. So, I do not want to focus on only just one method, but I would like to make a new challenge in various fields.'

Yunho is famous not only in Japan and Korea but throughout Asia. But he is not content with his position, he says with sincerity, 'I want to do my best more and more. I am feeling the true meanings of "Gift, like genius, only means an infinite capacity for taking pains." I would like to challenge simple things in front of me with passion, and would do my best to improve myself, so everyone, please support me!'

100525 Yunho: “I Won’t Force Myself To Do Something I’m Not Willing To”

DBSK’s leader, Yunho, challenged the role of the main lead in the youthful romantic comedy [No Limit~ Heading To The Ground~] for his acting debut. As an artiste, he states his reason behind challenging this work.

When I saw the script, my thinking was that even if it’s going to be very tough, I will still very much want to act out this character. I felt the main lead’s character was very similar to mine; no matter what obstacles he may face, he still believed in himself and would work hard to overcome the obstacles.

The character that he is portraying is Cha Bong Gun, a passionate soccer player, someone who would go all out to reach his goal.

Bong Gun, who was initially very rash and wild, later meets a lot of people, and with their support, he starts to change and in the process of it, mature. While I was portraying his character, I also felt that I had grown along with him. When the filming ended, even up still today, the character of Bong Gun is still alive within me.

He also spoke about how if there were to be anymore good productions from here on, he would continue the path of being an actor.

If I were to suddenly say “I like acting more!”, it would probably be a lie (laughs). But, I do feel a different type of attraction [to acting] as compared to music, so as an actor, I would want to improve myself further. My goal would be to be like Johnny Depp. To be able to act out different types of characters and possess different images, and be loved by everyone, be it a man or woman, young or old, is really no mean feat.

You seem to be interested in Japanese television dramas.

Aren’t those romance dramas that are emotionally-evoking very popular in Japan (laughs)? That’s why I want to try to act out a character that is very emotional. If I could work with Takako Matsu, that would be good. I have watched both “Love Generation” and “Hero”. I was really attracted to the parts where it was intellectual yet sexy at the same time.

Speaking of soccer, you seem to be anticipating the World Cup, which will start on 11 June.

I like it when everyone is passionately cheering while watching the match. I am definitely very passionate about it~ (laughs) I even went over to Germany four years ago to watch the match live. I like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Japan, I like Hidetoshi Nakata, who has already retired. I hope both the Japan and Korea teams will do their best.

As your fans, they would probably be watching out for your every move…

I am quite cautious, so I won’t force myself to do something that I’m not willing to. However, with opportunity, luck and confidence accompanying [me], I would like to challenge all sorts of things If I were to do anything next time, please look forward to it (laughs).
