JYJ’s Yoochun Addresses Kim Soo Hyun Comparisons

JYJ’s Park Yoochun revealed that he’s unfazed by the Kim Soo Hyun comparisons he’s been receiving lately for his royal family role in the upcoming SBS drama “Rooftop Prince.”

On March 5, Yoochun attended the press conference for “Rooftop Prince.” He opened up by saying, “I saw on the web that comparing ‘Rooftop Prince,’ ‘The King 2Hearts,’ and ‘The Equator Man.’ To be honest with you, I don’t really care much about it while filming the drama. Each of the drama has different genres, so I think the fans will like the comic side of ‘Rooftop Prince.’”

He was also asked about being compared to Kim Soo Hyun’s Lee Hwon character in MBC “The Moon That Embraces the Sun.” Yoochun said, “The TV ratings have been high for ‘The Moon That Embraces the Sun.’ I’m jealous of it. But honestly, there’s no pressure. I’m wishing for the drama’s success, but there’s no pressure on me personally.”

SBS drama “Rooftop Prince” is a fantasy romance about a Chosun-era prince time traveling to the future to find his past lover. Starring Yoochun, Han Ji Min, Lee Tae Sung, and Jun Yoo Mi, “Rooftop Prince” will air its first episode on March 14.
