Park Yong-ha reunites with Park Shi-yeon
Park Yong-ha and Park Shi-yeon may have had a bumpy romance in Story of a Man, but they’re re-teaming for a Park Hyo-shin music video that will take them to Switzerland. Park Yong-ha agreed to take the job as a friend to Park Hyo-shin, while Park Shi-yeon agreed because of her good relationship with Park Yong-ha. (There are way to many Parks in this paragraph.)
The song is yet untitled but the shoots are planned to take place in Jungfrau, Switzerland. Given the slump in the music industry, it’s a bit unusual to spend the time and money on an overseas location shoot, but I suppose they’re pulling out all the stops with/for its three big stars. (One source calls it a “blockbuster” music video.) Director Jang Jae-hyuk had previously shot the “Nobody” video for the Wonder Girls, and singer Park Hyo-shin will also act in the MV, filling out the love triangle.
The story is the sort of awesomely tearjerky stuff that kpop videos are so known for: Hyo-shin and Shi-yeon are in love and living together when he finds out that he’s only got a short time left to live. After learning that his older brother Yong-ha had also loved her, he leaves behind a “sad, beautiful letter.” (Commence tears!)
Park Yong-ha is currently preparing to resume activities in Japan, while Park Shi-yeon recently joined the SBS variety program Family Outing. Story of a Man is currently airing in Japan and enjoying a positive response (no doubt aided by Park Yong-ha’s popularity there from Winter Sonata and as a singer)
