this was a strategic release...of the news I mean...I personally wish them all the best...
BeeTV is the sole broadcaster for DOKOMO mobile phones and the number of BeeTV user accounts have gone past 1 million~! There will be new updates and recommendations for PIA TV’s readers everyday!
YuChun, a highly popular singer, will debut for the first time in a Japanese television drama. It has become a hot topic not only because of the appearance of YuChun, but also because the drama illustrates “a romance story between a wealthy guy and an average girl”, and such a Cinderella-like romance story is every girl’s dream.
[Beautiful Love~ Kimi ga Ireba ~], which will begin broadcasting on 4th June, will star YuChun as a South Korean typhoon named Youngsu, the heir to Tae Do Group. He is a typical rebellious youth, possessing a superior attitude to everyone around him, and does not trust anyone. He later meets a Korean reporter, Hinata, and they had the worst first impression of each other. What happens then when they meet each other again in Japan?
Playing the character of Hinata is a young actress named Omasa Aya. What kind of romance will YuChun and Omasa Aya play out?
[Beautiful Love~ Kimi ga Ireba ~]
When I found out that I was to star in a television drama I was very ecstatic, but I was also uneasy as all the lines were in Japanese. Moreover, I didn’t have much time to prepare, and there was a great pressure on me because I really wanted to act out the character well, so every night, the staff and I will cut down on our sleeping time just to practice reading the script. However, once I began filming, I felt happy being able to act. Catching the right Japanese accent was really hard, so as I was filming, at the same time, I would inquire from the director, and it was pretty tiring.
The character which I play, Youngsu, has a different personality from how I usually am, so it was a bit harder getting into and understanding the character. He could see that his real self was getting closer to Hinata, and it was not because of money. It is really good to be able to have a girl like Hinata, who can understand Youngsu completely. Omasa Aya, who plays the character of Hinata, is always very bubbly, and she has given me a lot of help. When we filming the last scene, I was a little startled when Omasa was not around. I didn’t know of it at that time, so it shocked me a little.
Through this acting experience, it was really interesting to be able to experience a life different from my own. I would like to try acting out different characters in the future. This television drama is about how both men and women can have a common desire to want to know and understand more people. During this week of filming, I have been moved a lot of times. I’m really happy to be able to share all these with everyone.
YuChun’s First Challenge At A Romance Drama

Airing in September, Micky Yoochun's Korean historical drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" will join in on the "if you want to have high drama ratings, find an idol group" concept.
Recently, high television ratings have all had the same point. Many flower boys have entered into the scene, burning young females' hearts with their handsome looks and warm, caring personalities. The start of this current trend no doubt began with F4 from "Boys Over Flowers". The actors of F4 - Lee Minho, Kim Bum, SS501's Kim Hyun Joong, and T-Max's Kim Joon - were all beginners in terms of acting, but received many invites to film for advertisements after the drama became a big hit.
After that came "You're Beautiful", earning an immense amount of favor from the creation of the group A.N.JELL inside the drama. The groups' members, including FT-Island's Lee Hongki and C.N.Blue's Jung Yonghwa, both gained a lot of attention. Especially since rookie Jung Yonghwa participated in the SBS Music Awards and other shows like We Got Married, he has become a dynamic new star.
Now, everyone's attention is focused on Asia's mega popular group, DBSK's member Micky Yoochun, who will play the character of Lee Sun Joon in "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" that is about to be released in September. Will Micky Yoochun's performance once again guarantee the concept "idol star=high ratings"?
Fans are eagerly awaiting whether or not this drama will once again start up the flower boy current - and there is a great chance that it will.

Omasa Aya and Yoochun star as lovers! The live interview will be coming right up~
Omasa Aya and Yoochun, who has a high popularity in Asia, will star together in a television drama by BeeTV. Omasa Aya will be playing the part of a paranoid 22-year old reporter, Hinata, whose dream is to become a writer.
Omasa Aya (quoted as Aya in the interview below) : This is my first time acting as a career woman, and the outfits are different from what I used to wear, the colour of my hair is also a bright colour. In the scene where I have to act drunk, I even asked the director how I was supposed to do it (laughs).
Even though they faced an intense schedule, the atmosphere was very peaceful when they went to different parts of Kanto for their filming location. However, this is the first time Yoochun-chan is using Japanese to act!!
Yoochun (quoted as Yoo in the interview below) : There was an intense amount of pressure, and I hardly ate anything on the first day.
Aya : You said you couldn’t sleep?
Yoo : Yes, I was still very nervous when I arrived at the filming location. I only got used to it slowly after I became familiar with everyone, it was very trying.
Aya : Yoochun-chan improved in both his acting and Japanese, very outstanding!! I only know a bit of Korean, so I am working hard to learn it. It is really amazing to skip sleep everyday and work hard to memorize the lines.
A banter of Japanese and Korean on a relaxed shooting scene.
How was the first meeting like?
Yoo : Even though we have seen the photographs before, when we met in reality, she looked more mature than me with her black hair~
Aya : At that time, I even got a CD from Yoochun
Yoo : I, didn’t say anything else after greeting her…it was really awkward…it was hard on you (laughs)!
Aya : Please don’t go there again~ (laughs)!! I was also very nervous initially. It was also my first time starring together with an artiste. However, for this shoot, everyone, be it the staff or the other actors, we got familiar with each other really quickly.
Yoo : The surrounding environment was very good! The shoot was always filled with non-stop laugher.
Aya : On certain occasions there would be some weird conversations. I don’t know why, but it felt like we were trying to kill time??
Yoo : Ah!! Round butt pen!! (PS: The pronunciation is the same as Omasa Aya’s last short sentence) Erm…Japan’s laughter gag
Aya : Ahahahahaha
Yoo : This is the atmosphere…most of the time
Aya : Also, we would whistle quite often
Yoo : Actually, we were usually singing songs, maybe next time (laughs)
On the day of the interview, we welcomed Yoochun-chan, who completed his shooting first.
Yoo :When I got the script, I wrote my kana name on it, and it was really tough when I practiced reading the script, but it was a job that left a deep impression on me. Even though it is a straightforward love story, please pay attention to my acting.
Aya : There are also sad scenes, but there are scenes with Youngsu (Yoochun) which involves pleasant interactions too.
Even though Hinata and Youngsu first met each other at the worst time of their situations, but such cases do exist in reality.
Aya : Perhaps…
Yoo : For me…[meeting] Aya was my first experience. I’m kidding! It must have been hard on you (laughs)
"The filming for the drama has already finished halfway. Now, doctor has perfectly blended into my body. Even if we're not filming, I still exist as doctor. Like how innocently blank he can be (laugh).
I feel that although doctor has always been using Japanese, he still unintentionally bursts out Korean words when his emotions get the better of his logical thinking. Because of this, whenever I film such scenes, I will spontaneously add in a few Korean lines.
It is really fun when all 5 of us film. Sometimes, even if I like talking a lot, my Japanese isn't as clear, so it causes everyone to be confused and kind of creates a cold atmosphere. During those times, Tamayama-san will directly say to me, "what did you mean by that?" immediately relieving the situation!
In my opinion, I hope that the 5 of us are be able to achieve happiness by the end. Compared to how doctor will be in the future, I'm more concerned and anticipating how all of us develop."
