“Three Days” Park Yoochun’s Fans Go to Crazy Lengths to Show Their Love
On April 15, C-JeS Entertainment said, “In China, Park Yoochun’s popularity is explosive. Putting together ‘Tae’ from his ‘Three Days’ character name Han Tae Kyung and the word ‘man,’ the term ‘Tae man’ was coined. On major Chinese portal site Baidu, the members in Park Yoochun’s fan community number 230,000.”
Such is the power of the lead actor in a series. With Park Yoochun’s popularity, fans in China gathered roughly 200 million won (approx.. $192,000) and bought a billboard by the front gate of a shopping center in Beijing. On the billboard that spans roughly 10,700 square feet, the fans wrote, “365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds. We want to see you every single day. We hope Yoochun’s new drama ‘Three Days’ becomes a huge hit, and we congratulate you in advance.”
Moreover, a Chinese “aunt fan” club for Park Yoochun even sent a coffee truck to the set of “Three Days” on a cold day, taking care of not only Park Yoochun, but all of the staff, as well.
The total view count for the drama has hit over 300 million between Youku and Tudou, and Park Yoochun’s old 2012 drama “Rooftop Prince” made it all the way back up to seventh place.
