To be honest I didn’t become a fan of Park Yoochun right off the bat. I think I saw him first in some pictures on Twitter. Actually, I was disappointed back then because I was looking for tweets and pictures of my favorite Taiwanese actor/singer when I stalked some people on Twitter. But what I saw were pictures of a guy with long hair and weird face (later on I found out he was called Lee Gak). Then it was in late 2012 when I watched Sungkyunkwan Scandal on TV. I didn’t know the names of the actors in that drama but I still watched it because I thought one of the actors was cute. Definitely it was not Yoochun, hehe! I told my friend that the main actor was ugly. Oops! Yes, I said that! I thought Yoochun was ugly. Anyway, I can’t remember if I finished that drama or not. During that time I wasn’t interested in K-drama or K-Pop because I preferred artists from Taiwan.
A few months later, one of my co-workers recommended a K-drama. She said that it was very funny and the actors were like idiots so she was sure that I would like it. So she thought I liked idiots? Maybe she was right because after that I searched for the said drama, LOL. The title was Rooftop Prince. I don’t know why but I still didn’t watch it. But I thought the actor looked familiar, hmmm, but then I just shrugged it off.
Then I watched Reply 1997. In this drama, it mentioned about Park Yoochun and TVXQ (fandom). I was amazed when I found out that TVXQ was very popular in Korea. So I searched about that group, but only just a little because I wasn’t into K-Pop, I was only curious. Then I found out that Yoochun was a member of TVXQ. I thought I knew Yoochun. I searched about him and then I found out that he was the main actor in the K-drama that was recommended by my co-worker. Aha! So it was him! Finally in 2013, I watched Rooftop Prince. This drama made me laugh, cry, scream, oh I really wanted to punch someone in the face when I watched it! I was so emotional. I could relate in that drama, seriously, I was so affected. I also met a Korean guy (and his Korean friends) who stayed in our country for years. We became very close and I remembered him because of Lee Gak (Yoochun’s character in the drama) and the Joseon boys (his friends). I fell in love with that guy but he had to go back to Korea and I thought I already moved on but when I was watching Lee Gak and Park Ha in Rooftop Prince I was smiling like an idiot and sometimes I got teary-eyed because I could see my story in that drama (though not exactly the same), of course minus the mystery. I also read somewhere that Yoochun could play the piano, ugh! Another similarity. But I had to stop. It wasn’t my intention to follow his career. I wasn’t really into Koreans, bitter much?
I thought I already forgot about Park Yoochun. I became active on Twitter then and one of my T-list was a big fan of JYJ (especially of Jaejoong). Most of her tweets were about JYJ and again I saw a lot of pictures of Yoochun on my timeline. Shaking my head, this guy couldn’t leave me alone! One day, I was so bored, when I saw some pictures of JYJ on my timeline and there was nothing to do, I tried to search about the said group. While reading blogs about JYJ, I learned a lot of things. I just found out about Junsu and Jaejoong so I searched more about Yoochun, since I already knew something about him before. I started to read all the news and articles I could find on the Internet. At first he made me confused. He had so many faces, sometimes he was handsome, sometimes he was cute but sometimes he wasn’t attractive, LOL! I couldn’t use the word ‘ugly’ anymore! Then I read the term “chunface.” Believe me, I searched the meaning of that! In some pictures he was very thin but in some pictures he was chubby? Haha! And also his fashion style, hmmm, never mind, LMAO! I think I started to appreciate him for real when I saw his airport pictures. He was wearing sandals and he really looked cool. Then I saw him wearing shorts and I saw his tattoo on his ankle, woah! It was sexy!
When I found out about what happened to Yoochun (to JYJ & TVXQ). I thought it was like watching a soap opera. I thought it was very interesting! Because of what I learned, my respect for Yoochun became bigger. I know that he’s a talented actor, he’s a great performer, a pretty idol, but there’s something more special about him. He’s UNIQUE. Yoochun has an amazing personality. I like his sense of humour, sometimes he’s cheesy but it also makes him cute. Actually he is so freaking cute without even trying. He’s a dork and sometimes he’s a flirt but sometimes he’s a shy boy. Awww really cute! But sometimes he looks scary, especially when he’s serious or when he looks angry. But I still find it sexy. I’m so biased. He’s also a genius. I liked it when someone called him a ‘sexy brain’. With his sexy personality I don’t think he still needs muscular body or a six-pack abs, that would only be a redundancy, haha! I’m also proud every time his co-workers, especially the veteran actors, praise his hard work. He’s playful but he’s serious when it comes to his work. He’s a professional. I love his style.
I told my friend on Twitter that she already influenced me, I already became a fan of JYJ because of her, but my bias was Yoochun. And I learned to like TVXQ as well, heh. Maybe she was disappointed but I already loved everything about Yoochun, even his past. I could embrace everything about him. Even Micky Brown was cute for me, LOL. I wanted to know him more so I watched all his videos on Youtube. I watched Sungkyunkwan Scandal again, and this time it was because I wanted to see Yoochun. He looked different when I watched it again. He became very charming, very handsome. I watched it three times. Then I watched Rooftop Prince again, and then I Miss You and Miss Ripley… I even watched his Bandjun dramas when he was still in SM. I couldn’t get enough of him!
I became a certified fan of Yoochun. I support him all the way. I even invited all my co-workers to watch Haemo in the theater with me. I like him as an actor and as a singer as well. And I like everything he does. I also enjoy shipping him with everyone. You see, he’s very shippable! For me he has the most beautiful smile. Sometimes I envy Yoohwan. Why can’t Yoochun be my brother? I want him as a brother, or a friend, and in the future I want to have a son like him. He’s my baby. *Insert Chorus of Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey* — I love to talk about him. Actually, I can talk about him all day long! LOL!
It wasn’t my intention to become his fan but it seemed like there was a magnetic force pulling me toward him. I’m on cloud nine every time I see him. I guess, I was meant to be a Chunsa. 🙂
