Park Min-young cast in Sungkyunkwan Scandal



Park Min-young (Ja Myung Go) has been chosen as the lead in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, the “campus youth sageuk” drama that follows a group of popular students studying at Sungkyunkwan, an institute of higher learning established in the Joseon era.

Park will be the next young actress to dress as a male, as did Yoon Eun-hye in Coffee Prince, Park Shin-hye in You’re Beautiful, and Moon Geun-young in Painter of the Wind. Her character enters Sungkyunkwan in place of her sick younger brother, and she’ll form a romantic relationship with Micky Yoochun’s character. She’s a bright student and smart character with the ability to solve problems.

Park is the last to be cast (she replaces Jung Da-young, who had been cast earlier) and joins castmates Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, and Yoo Ah-in. The drama began filming on May 27 and is looking for a premiere date later this year. But first, viewers will be able to see her acting in the special four-episode drama Running Shirt, which premieres this Thursday on MBC.

Park Min-young commented, “I know that people have high expectation for this character. I really wanted to do this project so I’m happy to be a part of it.”

Park Min-young on the set of Sungkyunkwan Scandal



Park Min-young was the last actor cast, but the first to release a photo from the set of drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, as we see above. The image was uploaded by a netizen on an internet community site and labeled “Confirmed, Park Min-young on the set of Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” which then spread to other portals.

The photo must be from the earliest part of the drama, since Park’s character Kim Yoo-hee soon sheds the woman’s hanbok for menswear when she takes the place of her sick younger brother at school. There, she gets to know the characters played by Micky Yoochun, with whom she has a romantic loveline, and his friends Song Joong-ki and Yoo Ah-in.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal will air on KBS and is tentatively set for a September premiere

The boys (and girl) of Sungkyunkwan Scandal



Here we get a look at the first stills of the four leads of the upcoming “campus historical drama” Sungkyunkwan Scandal, which is set in a Joseon-era school that is attended by the scholars and noble young sons of the day — and one young woman who sneaks in posing as her brother and subsequently finds herself in romantic entanglements with her fellow students.

This is the drama debut for DBSK idol singer Micky Yoochun (above), whose casting at best is a big ol’ question mark. I’ve seen a handful of idols make impressive acting debuts so there’s always hope, but the numbers aren’t in the idols’ favor. We’ll see if he’s up to the task, which is no small feat: not only is it a debut role, he’s playing the primary lead, plus it’s a sageuk.

In conjunction with the opening of the drama’s official website on the 12th, there will be special events held on the site that includes the giving out of VIP invitations to the production pres conference, T-shirts, and other paraphernalia.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal attracted interest right from the get-go, having been adapted from a popular novel. Anticipation grew with the casting of each of its hot young leads and the promise of a “Joseon-era F4.” The drama will air in September on KBS.

Seo Hyo-rim joins Sungkyunkwan Scandal



It’s interesting to see that the bright and lively Seo Hyo-rim (The World They Live In) will be joining the cast of Sungkyunkwan Scandal, because her name was one of the main contenders for the female lead role back in earlier casting days, before Jung Da-young signed on, then signed off, then was replaced by current actress Park Min-young.

Seo’s character “Ha Hyo-eun” is the daughter to a prominent government minister, and her marriage has been arranged with the young nobleman played by Micky Yoochun. I’m enjoying the description of her character, which notes that “nobody who meets her could forget her” due to the contrast between her “elegant appearance, her cheap way of speaking, and superficial intelligence.”

Seo is currently acting in the KBS daily drama Fine Windy Day (aka Good Day for the Wind to Blow) and is the host of the variety program Music Bank. This is her first sageuk attempt (although you can’t really call the historical rom-com a straight sageuk), and Sungkyunkwan Scandal will air in September.

Micky says gets along with TVXQ members "like water"


Korean singer and actor Micky Yoochun at a press conference for TV series "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" [Asia Economic Daily]

Korean singer and actor Micky Yoochun has said that he gets along with TVXQ bandmates "like water" despite the recent turmoil surrounding the band.

The pop idol made the remark at a press conference for upcoming TV series "Sungkyunkwan Scandal", where he takes on his first major TV role, held Thursday on the set in the city of Hwaseong in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea.

"We don't keep in touch as often as one might think", said Micky in his first public appearance since TVXQ's announcement that it would cease to carry out its activities as a five-man band. "But we still get along like water, just as we used to. I don't think [our relationship] changed because of what happened".

Last July, three TVXQ members -- Hero Jaejung, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu -- had raised legal issues against major talenthouse SM Entertainment, asking the court to nullify their 13-year contract with the agency.

The legal dispute led to friction also within TVXQ, considered one of the most successful K-pop acts throughout Asia, and the boys eventually announced that they will no longer be working as a group in Korea nor Japan.

Micky explained that around the time the group started breaking up, all the members were busy pursuing their individual activities; U-Know Yunho was shooting his first TV series "No Limit" (MBC, 2009); Max Changmin was filming in Jeju Island; and Hero Jaejung was working in Japan.

"I am excited because I am working for the first time in a while and I want to show fans a new, different side to myself", said the singer. "For the time being, I think I will be absorbed working on 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' and afterwards I want to take on a challenge music-wise".

In the historical drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal", he has been cast as a Confucian scholar named Lee Seon-joon who falls in love with a woman in disguise as a man. He will be playing one of the four main characters on the show, alongside actors Yoo Ah-in, Song Joong-ki and actress Park Min-yeong.

"I have been living a normal life since the incident last year -- I studied music and practiced acting a lot", the singer went onto say. "I went to see movies like other people do. I hadn't been able to spend much time with my parents because I was busy working and I spent a lot of time with them".

Micky, Hero and Xiah have since formed a separate group under Japanese management agency Avex through which they will continue their singing careers in Japan. The trio, who recently performed a series of concerts in Japan as a new unit, will be holding a fan meeting in Seoul on September 4.

"Sungkyunkwan Scandal" will premiere on the small screen in September.

Park Min-young gets comfortable on the Sungkyunkwan set




With a month left before premiering, the crew of Sungkyunkwan Scandal has been moving into high gear, and lead actress Park Min-young has basically moved to the film set — she’s in standby mode practically 24 hours a day, ready to film. The above shot is the latest to come from the set, where Park has made herself at home.

Park said, “It’s not overstating things to say that these days I’m at the filming location 24 hours a day. Since it’s a project I really wanted to do, I’m very attached to it and I’m taking the approach that I have to work hard no matter what. Also, the location is pretty pretty rural so at the end of the day I would have to return to our lodgings, and it’s not like we can come back up to Seoul. So I’ll stay at the set and we’ll keep each other awake. I just think of this as my home and spend my time comfortably.”

Sungkyunkwan Scandal also stars Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, and Yoo Ah-in. It airs on KBS, premiering August 30.

Xiah visited Sungkyunkwan Scandal set, support Micky Yoochun




Xiah Junsu suddenly visited “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” studio to cheer up his band mate Micky Yoochun. Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun are band mate in popular Korean boyband TVXQ .
To cheer up Micky Yoochun acting debut, Xiah bought 100 roasted chicken for all staffs and actors, then stayed until dawn at the studio.

This treat cheered Micky Yoochun very much.
Kang Byungchul who was on studio at that time said that Xiah’s sudden visit made Micky Yucheon very surprised. Though he pretended as usual, he looks very touched.

Another staff who watched those scenes said: Xiah’s support to his friend, who wants to start career as an actor, made us warm also.
When Xiah was asked by production staff ‘How about join us as cameo ?’, Xiah accepted pleasantly, said ‘If you give me opportunity, I will’.
So, don’t be surprised if Xiah will appear in Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal to be broadcast in KBS start August 30.




Seo Hye Rim turned into precious lady in Sungkyunkwan Scandal



Cheerful and lively Seo Hye Rim turned into an elegant lady for her role as Ha Hyo Eun in Sungkyunkwan Scandal.

Ha Hyo Eun is a daughter of a government minister and she was arranged to marry a young nobleman (plays by Micky Yoochun). But later, Micky Yoochun falls to other girl (plays by Park Min Young).

We always love Seo Hye Rim as a tomboy, cute and lovely person (like we saw in Worlds Within and currently airing KBS daily drama ‘ Good Days For The Wind To Blow‘) but in the picture above, she transform into an elegant lady in beautiful traditional hanbok and neat hair.

We eagerly will see the result of her transformation on August 30, when Sungkyunkwan Scandal debuts in KBS2.

Sungkyungkwan Scandal – Interview

Song Joong-ki says will suggest Micky bed scene if ratings fall

Upcoming KBS TV series “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” set to premiere on August 30, has been garnering attention from viewers for a while now for two reasons. One, because it is based on hit romance novel, and two, because of its cast composed of stars Micky Yoochun (playing the role of Lee Seon-joon), Park Min-young (Kim Yoon-hee) and Song Joong-ki (Goo Yong-ha). That is why the questions the four main characters were asked focused on asking the differences between the original novel and the drama, the atmosphere on set and the teamwork. Below are excerpts from the press conference held at the W hotel on Tuesday.

Q: Do you think there have been any changes made to your character in the drama compared to the original novel?

Park Min-young: While my character was more of a lady of refined manner in the novel, she will be more of a playful and mischievous person in the drama. She has become someone who is more cheerful and lively although I don’t know whether it’s because I’m playing the role or because it’s a historical drama with young characters. My character changes more toward the latter half of the show so I think her cute and loveable personality from the first half will have a dramatic effect on it.

Yu A-in: In the novel, my character Jae-shin is so manly and comic-like that I thought, ‘Nobody like this exists in the whole world.’ So I’m keeping the elements that may help add to the fun of the show but trying to leave out the cheesiness. From a realistic standpoint, I guess you could say that he now isn’t annoying?

Park: Jae-shin in episode 8 is cuter and funnier than any guy you’ve ever seen. Like Yu just said, you’ll get to see a lighter version of Jae-shin.

Yu: I’m worried whether I’ve done a good job of taking out the cheesiness but I’m also very worried whether I’m betraying my character from the original work that viewers may be looking forward to seeing.

Q: You had said at a previous press conference that you’re working very hard to become your character Lee Seon-joon. What about now?

Micky Yoochun: The aspect in which I related to Lee Seon-joon the most was in how he feels a pressure that is invisible. I think the reason he becomes so strict about principles is because of how he always tries to read his dad’s mind, and I actually felt a lot of a similar sort of pressure from my work. It’s not something I feel as a star, not that I am even one.

Song Joong-ki: Yuchun, you are a star!

Micky: Anyway, it felt like I was starting to forget who I was although I hadn’t meant to, so I think I was able to related to him a lot in that sense.

Q: How would you rate your own acting based on what’s been filmed so far?

Micky: I’m gonna have to start building up on the points. I don’t think I’m in the position to rate myself.

Song: I realized that Micky is really a hard worker. I actually was had somewhat of a prejudice about idol singer-turned-actors but I was very moved by how hard Micky works. I once gave him advice on his acting which could hurt his pride as an actor but he listened to me with modesty. I hadn’t expected that so I was surprised.

Q: Then how do you feel Song, you who have been considered to sync the best with your character Goo Yong-ha who likes to make jokes and is interested in indulging in sexual relationships?

Park: Earlier on when the ‘hanbok’ fashion show with Miss Koreas was on, Song looked at the cue sheet and said, “The Miss Koreas go out in the first part and then the actors. I guess I’ll just sneak out when the Miss Koreas go out.” There’s a reason the sync rate is so high. (laughs)

Song: (Sighs) It’s true that I said that. My mind woke up even after I had stayed up all night shooting yesterday when I heard Miss Koreas were going to be here. But this is all just part of my concept — I’m not actually like this. Um, and I’m a man too so I guess there is a side to me that’s somewhat like that. Ah, Park! You! (laughs)

Q: Then who do you think is prettier between your fellow actors Seo Hyo-rim and Park Min-young versus the Miss Koreas?

Song: Ha… That’s a really hard question. I think Hyo-rim and Min-young are prettier. It’s actually because it hurts my pride to see that the Miss Koreas are taller than me. (laugh)

Q: There are four main characters in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” but it’s true that the attention is turned to Micky. Don’t you feel disappointed about that as a fellow actor?

Park: Our show is receiving a lot of attention because of him so I feel that we’ve all been blessed. And Micky’s fans send tributes to the set three times a week.

Yu: That’s right. (laughs)

Park: There isn’t much to eat on set because it’s in the Mungyeongsaejae Provincial Park but they sent lunchboxes from a family restaurant to every crew member. There was so much to each. It feels like we’re working with a newcomer actor who is extremely popular.

Yu: A popular newcomer? That’s kind of ironical. (laughs)

Q: But don’t you also feel pressured by such fans? Park Min-young, you in particular must be envied by them because you get involved with Micky in the drama.

Park: A fan once pinched my back on set. (laughs) It stung but I felt that she would do it again if I showed that it hurt, so I just walked by quietly. And then I rubbed it when nobody was looking. (laughs) But I think it’s so cute how she would do that to the actress her idol singer is acting with. I’ve also received notes online saying how much they envy me. But I’ve already been through that with Big Bang so it’s okay. (laughs)

Q: I heard that Xiah Junsu (who?) visited the set too with 100 fried chickens. Was it good?

Micky: It was really good, all cold. (laugh) But I was really touched. He spent his own money for it… And he’s not the type to.

Q: You must sometimes miss being a singer when you see your fans who visit the set?

Micky: I recently held a concert in Japan and the memory from it is still there because I was standing on stage with a mic for the first time in a while. I’m holding a mic right now too but holding it as a singer is very different so I miss it a lot.

Song: What are you talking about? You held a mic at a karaoke room a few days ago. (laughs)

Q: Lastly, what do you expect the ratings to be for the show?

Song: I’ll be happy if the ratings come out well and sad if they don’t but I don’t think an actor should obsess too much over the ratings. I do however, want our show to do better than “Dong Yi – Jewel in the Crown” and “Giant.” (laugh) I’m personally hoping for about 17 percent? Oh, no. I once was in a drama that hit 17 percent on its premiere episode but the ratings kept falling after that. I feel uneasy now.

Micky: It’s the first time I’m paying attention to viewership ratings. I guess you could say we’re safe if we get about 15 percent?

Song: Oh, yes, I’d like it around there too. If it looks like the ratings are going to drop, I’m thinking of suggesting to the scenarist that Micky to a bed scene. That’ll probably boost ratings, right?

Q: Didn’t you say at the last press conference that he doesn’t have such a great body?

Song: Oh, that’s right!!! Then I guess they’d [ratings] fall. Nevermind!
