Singer and actor Park Yoochun has proven his global popularity yet again.

It was belatedly found that the news of Park Yoochun being chosen to play a role in SBS’ new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Three Days’ was covered in a Malaysian newspaper.

The newspaper reported the news and included a detailed explanation of the drama. It also included a photo of actress Park Ha Seon, who has been chosen to act alongside the singer.

As a member of JYJ, Park Yoochun is extremely popular all throughout Asia and has been receiving immense support from Malaysia since his MBC drama ‘I Miss You’ aired in the country.

There was a rough patch due to conflicts between SBS and the drama’s production company, but agreements were reached last weekend and it was decided that filming would begin this month.

Park Yoochun will begin filming for the drama next month as he is currently working on the movie ‘Sea Fog’. A representative of ‘Sea Fog’ stated, “We are currently working on the schedule with his agency so that there are no scheduling conflicts between the movie and the drama.”

With over 10 billion Won invested in the drama, ‘Three Days’ will feature stars such as Park Yoochun, Sohn Hyun Joo, Park Ha Seon, Soh Yi Hyun, Yoon Jae Moon, and Jang Hyun Sung.
