Yoochun Talks About Upcoming Military Enlistment and How JYJ Considered Enlisting Together as a Group


JYJ’s Park Yoochun, who will soon be making his big screen debut through “Sea Fog,” recently sat down for an interview with Star News on July 30 to discuss his very first film, as well as his thoughts on his upcoming military enlistment.

The new film, “Sea Fog,” is receiving attention, as it will be Yoochun’s final project before entering his military service. The JYJ member expressed, “If I could, I would like to do one more project before going. But that’s not something I can simply jump into because I want to—the timing has to be right.”

For now, Yoochun is expected to leave for service within this year. However, he carefully shared his wish to enlist next year, if possible.

He continued, “It would be great if I could do another project before going. But on the other hand, it’s also a good thought to go to the military soon and comfortably return to acting when I get back. I’m anticipating that the range in which I can act will widen when I come back from the military.”

Yoochun also talked about the enlistment of the other JYJ members, Jaejoong and Junsu: “At first, we thought about enlisting together, but we decided that’s not what we wanted to do. It seemed like a good idea, but after thinking about it, we decided that it would be better to do individual activities while each of us go separately.”

Meanwhile, Yoochun will be starring alongside actors Kim Yoon Suk, Lee Hee Jun, Moon Sung Geun, Kim Sang Ho, and more in “Sea Fog,” which is set to premiere on August 13!
