Park Si Hoo interview by www.vdfly.com

Park SI Hoo debuted in 2005 with “Sassy Girl Choon-Hyang” but his career did not take off until he acted in “Family Honor”, “Prosecutor Princess”, “The Princess’s Man”, etc. and finally reached the pinnacle in what the Chinese call “it takes 10 years to sharpen a sword”.  Although PSH who was born in 1978 was rather slow in taking off, he made it up with dramas that fans all love.  And he is so considerate to fans that he gains the nickname of “Warm Male”.

朴施厚接受青春娱乐网专访

因2005年出演《豪杰春香》而出道的朴施厚,一直人气平平,直到后来出演《家门的荣光》、《检察官公主》、《公主的男人》等剧才最终迎来自己事业的巅峰,可谓是十年磨一剑。1978年出生的朴施厚虽然出道较晚,但是大器晚成,他所主演的电视剧无一不被网友所喜欢,对粉丝贴心的他,更是收获了“暖男”称号。

“Scent”

Although his career dropped to its nadir last year, he jumpstarted his acting with his first Chinese movie “Scent” and returned to the big screen.  In addition, the theme song he sang for the movie “The Sound of Your Coming” was very well received.  At the moment, “Scent” is showing in cinemas everywhere.  PSH and Chen Ran went on a roadshow to promote the movie, and they arrived at Shanghai on August 18.  At the press conference, the two posed intimately for photos, eliciting screams from the audience.  Something worth mentioning: on that day several hundred fans were there to support PSH, and among these were many 40- or 50-something “Auntie fans”, testifying to PSH’s charisma.

虽然去年遭遇了事业的低谷期,但是重新整顿好的朴施厚凭借着自己的首部中国影片《香气》再度回归荧幕。不仅如此,他更是演唱了影片的主题歌《你到来的声音》获得一致好评。日前,其所主演的影片《香气》也正在各大院线热映,为了助影片造势,他与陈燃各地奔走宣传,昨日(18日)两人就抵达上海进行宣传。在发布会现场,两人还亲密合影,引来台下观众惊叫连连。值得一提的是,当天有数百名粉丝到现场应援,而这些粉丝中还出现了四五十岁的“阿姨粉”,可见朴施厚的魅力之大。

Park Si Hoo in attendance

To gratify his fans’ wishes, PSH sang the theme song of “Scent” (The Sound of Your Coming) without music, making his fans very excited and enlivening the whole event.  After the press conference, PSH graciously agreed to be interviewed by our reporter in Shanghai, smiling so charmingly that our reporter was almost overwhelmed.

朴施厚出席

为了满足粉丝们的愿望,朴施厚在现场清唱了《香气》的主题曲《你到来的声音》,让一众粉丝雀跃不已,也让整场发布会热闹非常。在发布会结束后,朴施厚欣然接受了青春娱乐网驻上海站记者的访问,迷人的微笑也让一旁的记者招架不住。

Q & A

Q: Did you notice that today many fans who came to support you today are “Auntie fans”.  Looks like you have great charisma.

A: Ha!Ha!Ha! ….. (shy) Maybe it’s because I have played all kinds of roles and so can satisfy fans of different ages.

青春娱乐:不知道你是否注意到,今天过来应援的粉丝当中有不少“阿姨粉”,看来你的魅力很大呢!

朴施厚:呵呵呵……(害羞)可能是我之前所演绎的角色类型比较多样,能够满足各个年龄阶段的粉丝吧。

Q: It must be partly because you are very good to your fans which is why they are unwavering in their support.  Mr. X [Korean actor] has already proposed to Miss Y [Chinese actress].  Have you considered finding a Chinese girlfriend?

A: Actually if the opportunity arises, I’m perfectly willing to fall in love with a Chinese girl.  I prefer a girl of good character – kind, considerate, and encouraging to a man which will make me feel gratified.

青春娱乐:肯定也有一部分原因是你够体贴粉丝,所以她们才会对你不离不弃。你看李承铉都向戚薇求婚了,那么你是否也有想法找个中国女生做女朋友呢?

朴施厚:其实只要有机会的话,我还是很愿意和中国女生谈恋爱的。而且我也比较喜欢善良、人品好、体贴又愿意给男生加油鼓劲的女孩子,这会让我觉得很窝心。

20140820e

Q: In “Scent” you not just played lead but also sang the theme song “The Sound of Your Coming”.  Did you feel the pressure?

A: If I tell you there’s no pressure, I would be telling a lie.  In order to sing this song well, I practiced Chinese really hard.  I hope my fans and moviegoers like it.

青春娱乐:《香气》这部影片,你不仅担纲主演,还演唱了主题曲《你到来的声音》是否觉得有压力?

朴施厚:说没有压力肯定是假的,而且为了能够将这首歌曲演唱好,我一直很努力的练习中文,也希望粉丝和观众们都能喜欢。

Q: You sang very well.  If it is released as an album, it will sell very well.  Right now on the internet there is a poll going on called “Asia’s 10 Most Handsome”.  After two rounds, you are still in contention, and you remain in the Top 20*.
[*ED: Actually PSH is in the Top 10.]

A: Thank you.  I feel very honored to be a candidate among so many Asian artists.  I thank my fans for their support.  I will work hard and come up with more quality works in the future.  And of course I hope fans will support my new movie “Scent”.

青春娱乐:唱的真的很好听,如果出专辑也一定可以大卖。日前网络上有一个“亚洲十帅”的网络票选活动正在进行中,虽然经历了两次淘汰赛,但你的人气一直很高,也保持在“给力区”前二十强之内。

朴施厚:谢谢!能够成为众多亚洲男艺人中候选人之一,我感到很荣幸,也很感谢粉丝们的支持,我一定会努力做好,在未来拿出更多优质的作品回馈粉丝。当然也希望粉丝们能够多多支持我这部新片《香气》。

Right now competition is very fierce on “Asia’s 10 Most Handsome”.  After the first two knockout rounds, many handsome stars are eliminated.  Those remaining stars are giving us constant surprises.  For details, please go to our official website.

据了解, 目前“亚洲十帅”活动竞争愈发激烈,随着前两轮淘汰赛的落幕,不少帅星遗憾落选,榜单上的帅星们更是给人惊喜不断,欲知详情,可以前往“亚洲十帅”官网一窥究竟。

….and Christmas trees were tall

Remember that Bee Gees’ oldie “First of May” which begins…?

When I was small, and Christmas trees were tall…

Flashback to PSH’s birthday bash at Buyeo on April 6, 2014.

PSH and his fans (many Japanese, some Chinese and Korean) planted trees as part of the celebration.

JOFC140822-1

On 2014.04.06

Now fast-forward to August 2014:

JOFC140822-2

In August 2014

And you will find yourself humming another line from the same song:

Now we are tall, and Christmas trees are small…

[ED: Or should it be the other way round?  First we're tall and the trees are small, and now we're small and they're tall... or whatever^^]

The trees have grown/are growing, and they are flourishing!  We would like to think that they symbolize PSH’s reviving acting career.

The above photos are from the JOFC.  Normally we would not have posted these pictures which are meant for members only.  But in this case we are making an exception because these are just pictures of trees and do not involve image rights, so we hope they will cut us some slack.

JOFC also posted a photo of PSH standing before the trees in the field.  Much as we would love to show you that, we dare not infringe intellectual property.  Ha! as luck would have it, we found the photo on Weibo.  Someone enterprising fan actually had the temerity to delete the JOFC logo and in the process cutting off PSH’s legs!
