Yunho becomes sword-wielding Night Watchman

girlfriday: NoooooooooOOOOOooooo. Yunho is the latest addition to MBC’s fantasy sageuk The Records of a Night Watchman.

javabeans: I… am going to be positive about this. I have to be positive about this. My mental health depends on it.

girlfriday: Positive. Right. Searching for the silver lining…

javabeans: Maybe he took acting lessons? Maybe he learned how to emote onscreen? Maybe he learned how to say lines like a normal human?

girlfriday: Maybe he plays a character who doesn’t speak? Maybe he’s a ghost?

javabeans: Sadly (I mean, uh, happily!) he plays a human (which is where having spent the past few months, hopefully, enrolled in human-emotion acting classes will really pay off) who sees ghosts. But on the upside, he is “a cold-hearted man of few words.” Score?

girlfriday: It also says he’s popular with the ladies, but only has eyes for one girl.

javabeans: That’s good for him, because there’s nothing like heartbreak to draw the viewer’s sympathy, and we all know his acting won’t do that.

girlfriday: You mean, it WILL, because of all those classes! What happened to the positivity, man?

javabeans: Oh, right. Yes. The heartbreak will be exxxxxtra heartbreaky because he will have learned how to act it so well. Maybe he got his heart broken in real life recently!

girlfriday: Poor Yunho. Sometimes I feel bad for being mean, but I swear, it’s not personal. We would LOVE it if you were better!

javabeans: I actually really like him as a person (as far as I can tell from his variety persona), which is why I feel so bad for having such a visceral reaction, like seriously gag reflex level, to the thought of him acting in things.

girlfriday: And more importantly, why does he have to do it near Jung Il-woo???

javabeans: You’re making it really hard to be positive, you know. Maybe they will have mad bro chemistry. Maybe they will be the opposite of Yunho and Siwon in Poseidon, who were supposed to have intense rivalry-chemistry, and instead made me confused about what they were feeling. Siwon would be appropriately angry, and Yunho would look nice and then say mean things. The words said one thing, and the face said another. I was super confused in that show.

girlfriday: But that’s all in the past, right? Because three years is plenty of time to get your brain re-wired for emoting and stuff!

javabeans: I want to say more positive things, but honestly, the nicest thing I can say is “He seems nice in real life?”

girlfriday: That counts for something.

javabeans: I suppose I could be worse…

girlfriday: It could be Changmin?

javabeans: Or he could be the funny guy and not have to emote!

girlfriday: Yes, because he surely took comedy acting classes alongside the human emoting ones!

javabeans: That sounds entirely possible and even plausible. Yep.

Wow, reading the comments below is crazy. Let me just point out the obvious to the fan girls who have descended on this post- not everyone who thinks Yunho is a terrible actor says so, because they are some form of undercover JYJ fans. Accusing long time readers of this site and the actual site owners, and even being downright rude and insulting does no favors to you, your fandom or your bias.

The excuse that he is so nice, he is working hard, etc., does not change the fact that he is a terrible actor, and people who were interested in the drama before his casting, have a right to voice their dissatisfaction.

The fact that SM is trying to find him a second career, as he is an aging idol, is laudable, but that doesn’t mean drama fans have to play along. His last casting attempt was met with a petition; however, they managed to hide it well this time, so fans of this drama couldn’t react in time.

If he insists on acting, despite knowing how terrible he is. And if he doesn’t have the fortitude to accept his own limitations, then he should accept the backlash as well. So, Yunho fans, stop polluting the comment section and exposing your bad behavior to all. Peace!

I only saw him once in a drama with Go Ara, that was long time ago.. But, I don't think that he is as stiff as Taecyon! Eh ;-P

I don't understand why ppl make it such a big deal.. JIL is not that great either, I'm a fan of JIL but I have to admit sometimes his acting a bit off too. (O.. O.. please don't kill me fangirls!!)

Let's hope that they will bring the best out in each other acting, JIL probably be the one who will lead the entire cast because he is the more experienced actor that Yunho and Go Sung Hee.

FIGHTING!

I think almost everyone has the same reaction.

I don't follow him much but I think he is genuinely a good person from what I read/seen and heard from shows and fans, and that is what I like about him. But like for reals, SMEnt really is shoving him down everyone's eyes/ears and throat.. urghhh...

I hope he had some lobotomy so that emotion can get through his eyes and face and voice or maybe just one those so at least I could be positive about this... urghhh I sound so mean but I really like him, but for his acting not so much...

I was super about this cause it is JUng Il woo but... ... hmmmnnn....

I think SM is especially pushing Yunho into dramas because he's going to enlist into the military soon. After he comes back, Changmin might be in the army. So what's he gonna do? I don't think he's vocally strong enough to put out a successful solo album, he doesn't really have a footing in variety shows, he might do musicals...but more likely than not, it's going to be dramas.

*sigh* I love you Yunho, but why. Why :'(

I agree.
His vocal is not that good either, especially if he has to do solo. His just a lil above average, and is never considered as one of idols with good vocals (his old friends in DBSK Junsu & Jaejoong are the ones who always get praises from experts). So many singers have better voice than his. Maybe with the help of autotunes he can make it.
And musical? Nope. That's hard! His old work doesn't really impressed many, except his (die hard) fans.
He's only good at dancing, but there are many good dancers beside him. And being a dancer only can't be that "prestigious".
Variety shows needs someone with 4D character to make it interesting, which is not him.
So, he really has to do something so that when he comes back from military service, he can still shine. Drama has wider range of audiences, and actors/actress usually are more famous than singers, so there he goes... trying to be an actor. But, well... >_>
None of his "talents" are exceptional. Poor him.

He also doesn't do much in terms of composing/songwriting so music production seems very unlikely..

Well I guess if all else fails he could take the path of Jaewon (formerly of Blackbeat in SM) and choreograph/teach trainees.

0

He is great at dancing that is defintely his forte. It was once revealed that he partly cheographs for their music and other SM artists.

(Also, I doubt the role will require dancing from him.)

So as Deliane said, he could go into cheography/ teaching the trainees in dancing.

0

I won't completely disagree with you as I also think Yunho's one of the worst idol-turned-actors out there (although it hurts to admit), but he actually has a lot of talents on the human and social side!
Becoming a dance instructor is probably the best future for him, because he's just an awesome human being (he donates, funds scholarships, supports kids who have a bad start into life -and he's always the first sunbae to support, teach and warn his hoobaes-) and he can dance pretty well :D
And I think his slower solo songs are pretty good; you should totally check out "November with Love"

@jaelin
LMAO.....Yunho is a good singer, not the best, but he does have a nice voice. I hope you realize that unlike some idols, Yunho can actually sing live and dance at the same time. He actually sounds better live than some singers.
Yes, his acting in past dramas was very bad, but he's pretty good at theater. He got positive reviews from critics for his performance in the Goong Musical. He should stay away from Kdramaland but focus on being a musical actor.

@jaelin
"none of his talents are exceptional." hahahaha at the ignorance....Yunho was voted BEST IDOL DANCER many times on Super Idol Chart Show. Many fanboys especially members of EXO admire him because of his awesome dance skills. By the way, Yunho is a good singer and expanded his vocal range since TVXQ relaunched as a duo.
Check out his live performance below.

You don't need to feel sorry for him.He is a good singer despite not being a main vocalist.If Rain and KHJ went solo, anyone can.
This is the first time i se someone looking down at yunho talent like this when majority of people know that he can do well solo.

What a joke! He is talented enough to do well solo. Most of kpop fans ( even non tvxq fans) and experts can see it.Minority doesn't count.

Lo, JYJ stans flocking here and even linking each other and RTing at twitter this article is really pathetic.

Focus on criticize his acting as it is what this article is about, but some just have to take the oportunity to start bashing, calling Yunho talentless when he's good at singing, dancing he does composes and wrote lyrics too. Please, don't bring your agenda to this site, it looks ugly and sorta pathetic.

We get it, you don't like him, but don't lie or start such comments and don't start this type of 'campaign' between you guys to gain upvotes here, it's really childish.

As for Yunho acting, he needs to improve a lot, really hope he will.

0

I think another reason SM keeps pushing Junho and Changmin into acting is because they are somewhat jealous over the success JYJ have had in their respective turns at acting. I think JaeJoong, YooChun and Junsu were probably the more talented members of DBSK so when they broke away SM was left with not as much talent. Then SM tried every dirty trick in the book to keep those 3 from gaining success but they worked around SM and proved that they had the talent to get to where they are now. I also feel bad for YunHo but he made the wrong decision to stay with SM. If they had stayed together they could be doing something similar to Shinhwa after their military service.

The lawsuit was a turning point for members of DBSK.

They can choose to stay as idol for the rest of their life but to keep challenge their talents in drama, movie, musical, and others can make they more mature and think there more things that they can do.

I'm happy for DBSK duo that working hard to stay, maintain and increase their name. It just they're not suit in acting..

JYJ that had the guts to walk away from SM and had (still) outcast from tv station... well, they got talent doing drama, movie, and musical. *salute*

0

I SO agree with everything you said!!!

It's unfortunate because if they had stayed together, they definitely had the potential to be uber-popular even in this idol-crazy day and age...and I don't think any current group will match the longevity of Shinhwa.

I was sick and tired of all the crap that SM pulled to try and block JYJ from being successful...that didn't work out too well, did it? ;)

0

I think what made DBSK stand out was that each member had talent, which combined to create something unique in both charisma onstage and vocally. Its hard to say the three who left are more talented per se, but overall they definitely were the more popular members, with Junsu in Korea and Jaejoong in Japan.

I wouldnt go as far to say that Yunho and CHangmin should have left because clearly they dont regret their choice, and they've established themselves with new fans in Japan (raking in the money) and also worked on their weaknesses. Yunho is a better vocalist now and Changmin has come out of his shell more on variety shows etc.

However as a fan I think I'm more concerned about the duo's longevity. JYJ each have individual pursuits that could go on past enlistment for a long time, whilst I don't really know how TVXQ as an idol group could continue. Shinhwa is doing great but overall the limelight has left them and each member has solo activities. So naturally Yunho and Changmin have each looked to variety shows or dramas so as to continue to work in the entertainment industry.

0

The entitlement and delusion in your comment is ridiculous.
Where exactly JYJ is now?
Doing dramas with average ratings? Or in Jaejoong case pathetically below average?
Winning popularity awards that they owe to their fangirls most than real critics? Because there is nothing in their acting to really brag about, they are mediocre at best.
Releasing bad bad songs or amateur compositions only good to their deluded fans.
Acting as cringewhorty "rock stars"?
Or looking like emaciated corpses or bloated messes?

What makes you think Yunho and Changmin will be better at jyj side than where they are now?

At a place where they are making millions of dollars and looking really content and fulfilled.

Yunho doing a drama has nothing to do with anything. Does he looks like he is being forced to make this drama? Or more like he is following a personal dream and being stubborn enough to keep trying?
I will go for the latter, so, how Yunho doing a drama has to do with him making a "wrong" decision that wasn't wrong to start with.
Keep being you deluded self if this makes you feel better and left Yunho and Changmin alone, belittling them and their efforts won't change anything, they will never get back with jyj and many fans are ok with that.

0

imo, i hardly think SME’s world revolves around jyj. (Most jyj fans like yourself would like to think so but....)

SME is not letting their artistes venture into other entertainment fields to make anyone jealous.

SME is merely doing what they are suppose to do. Manage their artistes. Doing so by investing in them as assets, allowing them to venture into various entertainment fields in order to put their names and faces out there and increase their worth 〈answering your question why they put yunho, changmin or ANY OF THEIR OTHER ARTISTES in movies and dramas and variety〉 If there is competition, that is natural and expectant. That is why it is done and how it is suppose to be. Biz decisions are not made out of spite or jealousy of the nature or such situation you describe. To think this way is pretty childish or ignorant about how big business works.

@Alice Does he looks like he is being forced to make this drama? Or more like he is following a personal dream and being stubborn enough to keep trying?

No, he just looks like he doesn't get the message that acting is not part of his skill set and therefore he should concentrate on other things he's good at.

I don't know why you idol fangirls seem to think your oppas are entitled to acting careers no matter how much they suck, and I don't even know what JYJ is or why you seem to hate them so much. But you don't seem to have registered that a good performance in a low rated drama is still a good performance.

Quit being angry and delusional just because your bias doesn't have what it takes, and go support him in whatever he does do well.

About the enlistment thing, SM are being stupid about it (what's new?). As it much as it will hurt, it's better to get them to enlist together and disappear for two years, instead of individually, where we don't see them as a duo for FOUR years and have to put up with mediocre side projects just to get our TVXQ fix.

As much as I love Yunho, I still think he has a lot more to improve on his acting career. but yes, positivity!!! I hope that he does take up on those acting classes and hope not to ruin this drama. He probably doesn't intend to, but his awkward acting might be the ultimate reason for me to hesitate a bit. I'll give it a shot anyway bcos Jung Ilwoo's in it.

For the other comment you said above, I hope you realize that A LOT of idols do NOT write their own songs. Yunho actually wrote lyrics and composed music multiple times for his solo songs, which became a big hit especially in Japan.
You never know...he might focus on music production someday.

I know that most idols do not write songs, and I don't think that they need to either. Their job is to execute the song, dance, concept and create a whole package on stage. I've listened to most songs that Yunho has had a hand in being a long time DBSK fan so I know that he has dabbled in music production (my favourite would be Tied Ship). Nevertheless i was just stating that I don't think it seems to be his main priority like it is for say GD who works with other groups as well. Hence trying to expand to acting.

I might as well add that a few commenters brought up Yunho's other talents as a way of explaining why he is determined to keep acting. The number of upvotes for some comments just shows that stans from either side have flooded the article.

None of them have ever crossed it out completely, but I definitely think that Junsu will be focusing on musicals even when he comes back from the military.

Junsu is definitely one of a kind...not to get himself into dramas because he has the self-control not to, knowing that he isn't comfortable with acting (without singing). He's the best singer out of the 5 that was in TVXQ, so that alone is enough for him and I'm happy for him.

Both Yunho & Taecyeon have similar... determination(?) but sadly the end results were (still are in Taecyeon's case) always disappointing.

Man Yunho is like my ultimate bias. I really love him to bits. But every time I hear he will be in another drama...it's like...just no. I feel really bad cause he really is A NICE NICE GUY. But he is just not fit for acting. I appreciate that he tries, I do. But at some point he has to realize that it's not going to work out. OH WRITING THIS HURTS ME.

But how is he going to realize it when it fact it does work out? I mean, he is being cast in dramas again and again, and not in teeny tiny roles either, so it's working for him, isn't it?

Personally, I just cry for all the actors than can actually act, but will not get roles because they are not idols. Just makes me mad and sad. I can think of so many that I wish would get bigger roles, would get their break... but then another idol that cant act is cast instead.

Has he accepted? Nooooo !!! Why Yunho?? Anyone in their right minds knows he can't act? Perhaps he made improvements? Like Yonghwa...But he's even worse than Yonghwa. I cringe when I watch him 'act'.

JYP must have arm wrestled them into giving him a role. Otherwise why????

LOL, good one! This reminds me of a Friends episode where Joey Tribbiani tried so hard at his minor acting role as an injured man but totally sucked at it. In the end, his role was changed to a dead man. Hahahaa

*repeatedly banging head against wall*

Whyyy, casting director, whyyy???? :( This decision alone has the potential of going into Wtf territory, if they're gonna surround Jung Il-woo with supporting actors like Yun-ho :/

...Unless...this was intentional for the purpose of noise marketing?? If that's the case, they should damn well know that the casting of Jung Il-woo alone guarantees buzz.

I don't have anything against Yun-ho the singer, but he really needs to stop venturing into acting -- for sanity's sake. If there was a slight iota of marked improvement over the course of his roles, I'd happily let him be cast for the role of a ghost. Unfortunately, since that's out of the picture...please just let him be one of those stoic, men-of-few-words type of guy then. Please...don't ruin a drama that eagerly anticipating :(

Surprised when i saw this, really didn't think yunho will try again, he's really persistent isn't he.

I really love him,but not as an actor.....he was embarassing to watch in HTTG, but i thought he was a bit better in yawang sooo i'm still holding out hope. maybe he will be great at action....hoping, praying, don't ruin the drama pleeease

I feel like I'd only be okay with this casting news, if they decided to cast Jung Il Woo's bffs as the other night watchmen (and Yunho can totally be the Song Woo Bin of this ghostbusting-F4...meaning he only appears in three scenes per episode).

I have been screaming NOOOOOO since I read the News. No matter how much I love DBSK(all 5) and YunHo .... I just cannot tolerate YunHO acting and above that he is acting with Jung Il Woo ... Oh please GOD. Jung Il Woo will eat him up. Oh drama god why are u doing this to us.
YunHO I love you singing, dancing, HIP thrusting, smile ... But I am so sorry I cannot even stand your acting you ruin me on your first drama ...that soccer drama.

I feel your pain. Yunho being cast in a drama you don't really care about is one thing, but his being cast in a drama you're really looking forward to, opposite one of your favorite actors, is waaaay more painful. (It's exactly how I felt when I learned PMY was gonna be the female lead in A New Leaf, opposite the insanely awesome pairing of Kim Myung Min and Kim Sang Joon.) But yes, he does seem like a really nice guy, and hopefully his acting has improved. Miracles can happen, right?

Yunho~ You: NO, you know? But I love your voice!

I was just going to say the same thing myself, mary! SM Entertainment, if you insist on sticking your actors/entertainers in a high-profile (could this be considered high profile?) upcoming drama, why not choose someone like Song Jae Rim, who can actually, yunno, act?!?!

Nothing personal against Yunho; from what I've seen he does seem like a nice guy. But please, just don't!

Jaejoong has improved so much with his current drama triangle. LBS and other veterans A lists actors in his same company sure played a bit part in it.

But poor Yunho, he still can't find his .He just does not have the talents for acting.

I don't know what JYJ is (I thought they were all members of DBSK? )

Never heard any of their music, don't follow boy groups, but you're deluded if you think a Yunho-as-actor fan has any room to trash Jaejoong's work

Sorry, Yunho (though you're one of my biases kekeke), but I think you've got to get soooo much loooooooong waaaay in order for you to act that decently....

But, because of Mr. Positivity telling me to endure a bit, I think my conscience tells me to give him a third chance for this.
