‘Three Days’ Action Director Says JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun is a Natural Born Athlete
The action director of Three Days praised JYJ’s Park Yoo Chun for his action scenes.
As SBS’s Three Days is a drama depicting forces behind the assassination of the president and the national security guards, it features many high-level action scenes.
Taking the role of security guard ‘Han Tae Kyung,’ Park Yoo Chun has earned the nickname of ‘master of action scenes’ as his action scenes in the elevator, train, hallway and through a window have been selected as the best scenes of each episode.
Director No Nam Seok, who is in charge of action scenes in the drama, said, “I met Yoo Chun for the first time when he filmed the train action scene for the fourth episode and felt that he is naturally very quick in his movements. When I taught Yoo Chun certain moves, he quickly learned to do them with great acting. The other actors also praised him for his action skills."
He added, “There are not many actors who can pull off the action moves that quickly and smoothly but Yoo Chun, who has a third-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and has experience being an athlete, is one of the best. He also doesn’t like to use a double for the more difficult scenes because he has high expectations for his acting. That has to lead to great scenes.”
Director No Nam Seok also chose his favorite action scene so far saying, “All the action scenes were great but I think the one where he goes against ten others on the train was the most thrilling one. As the drama is half way over, I’m sure Yoo Chun will continue to show great action scenes.”
