Yoochun is becoming a topic of hot interest in Asia not just as the handsome JYJ member, but as a charming actor.
Recently concluded SBS drama ‘Rooftop Prince‘ has become wildly popular in countries overseas, especially in neighboring China.
Not long after the drama series was launched in Korea, a fan site for ‘Rooftop Prince’ was created on a major Chinese portal site Baidu, and has now nearly 60,000 registered members.
Furthermore, Yoochun’s personal fan site on Baidu has over 80,000 registered members, and special events were held in 4 major Chinese cities Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Chongqing for Yoochun’s past birthday further proving his immense popularity.
‘Rooftop Prince’ related videos on Chinese video hosting service Youku received a total of over 77 million hits, and were voted an average of 9.4 out of 10 by viewers. Furthermore, more than 110,000 comments were left by fans and the series is currently the most popular Korean drama in China. Considering the #2 and #3 most popular Korean dramas are over a year old, ‘Rooftop Prince’ is proving to have had a strong impact on its Chinese fans.
A representative remarked, “This is extremely surprising, as the drama has yet to be officially broadcast in China. The chemistry between the actors, actresses, and the staff members was really impressive, and main character Park Yoochun accurately delivered each of the emotions between the two characters he played, allowing for such an explosive response from fans.”
Meanwhile, ‘Rooftop Prince’ has currently started airing in Taiwan, and is also preparing for its broadcast in Japan.
