Jung Yumi courted for big screen romance with Yoochun

Jung Yumi (God of the Workplace, I Need Romance 2012) is having quite the busy year in film and TV, and it looks like she’ll be going right from romancing Yoo Ah-in in Kkang-chulie to being paired with Yoochun (I Miss You) in his big screen debut. She’s still considering the role, but I hope she takes it. I like the pairing, enough that I wish this were a dramaland romance instead.

The project is play-to-film adaptation Sea Fog, from blockbuster director-turned-producer Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) and screenwriter-turned-director Shim Sung-bo (Memories of Murder). It stars Kim Yoon-seok (Thieves, Wandeuki) as a fishing boat captain who goes so broke that he decides to turn his vessel into a smuggling ship, and begins the very dangerous business of sneaking people across the border between China and Korea. Yoochun plays a member of the crew that faces off with the captain.

The story is about a perilous journey with one particular group of stowaways and the ship’s crew that’s falling apart at the seams. If she signs on, Jung Yumi will play a stowaway on the ship, a young woman hoping to cross the border to find the brother she lost contact with. And during the journey she’ll share a steamy romance with Yoochun. Apparently the role is racy enough that it’s cause for concern in getting a leading actress to sign on, so they’re simultaneously tinkering with the script while casting. Let’s not be hasty now. You still have to leave enough steam to power the thing. Ahem.

Once it finalizes casting, Sea Fog will begin production, and plans for a 2014 release.

I heard the original scenes were too racy for most actresses, so they are toning it down. Considering how much flack Song Ji Hyo still gets for Frozen Flower, all this years later, I see why the actresses are worried.

Jung Yumi is one of the best actresses of her generation.

MYC is an OK actor for an idol (he is improving), but she blows him away in the acting dept. (not to mention the looks dept. as well).

Staph. Please sheath your claws; many fangirls' hearts are bleeding.XD

Off course Jung Yumi is awesome and that's why so many Yoochun fans are excited and hope that she will accept the role. He can learn lots from her and Kim Yoon-seok.

Btw, many Yoochun fans don't find him all that handsome, either. Somehow they still find him irresistible though.

Jung Yumi is a very good actress, in fact she's so good that she has good chemistry to her leading men. I think her pairing with Eric in Que sera-sera is so great that in my opinion, it will remain the best acting Eric has ever done in any of his k-drama. Mickey will learn a lot from her, and yes, she's a great kisser, no inhibitions when it comes to kissing (referring to I need romance 2 =)

Except she's a stowaway so there'll be less bed scenes and more cargo scenes. Or maybe shipdeck scenes. Or rat-infested hole scenes.

So we finally will see Park Yoochun naked on screen? Wow.
He will be the first idol actor who took such challenging role. Oh,and I like Jung Yumi. She is cute (and good at kissing too *ahem*). I think they will look compatible even though she is older than him. Go for it, girl!

I'm actually liking this very much & kind of hope she takes the role.

To be honest, Yoochun still got that Idol image to preserve. I don't think he would do anything dramatic (...say like 'Frozen Flower').

I think he prepared for it. his LINE post he said that he think about it for sometimes and he want to try it. and asking fans to support it.
to think that the script hasn't change, he knew the risk already.

and i'm ready for chunbutt~!!!!

If he wants to break away from drama and create a new, serious actor image it's exactly what he'd do, don't you think? He needs a gutsy, high-profile role for this, he abviously found it.

he got many good role, good PD and well, some bad screenwriter, but it were still good project overall. even the a-list actor can't find something like that in a row. now after all of that, he got the best blockbuster director-turned-producer in his belt, what is that if not luck? (sure, hardwork counted)

Oooh. Interesting. I was hoping for an up and coming actress, preferably younger than Park Yoo Chun but Jung Yu Mi would still be alright, she looks younger than her age anyway. And I really wonder how "racy and steamy" those scenes would be, for her to even consider the role..?

Yoochun has been working out all summer to make his body sea-worthy. Ahem, it would be such a shame if all of his hard work is for naught.

Jung Yumi is awesome and she will make a perfect Hongmae. Ok, keep tinkering to win her over; but pretty please try to keep the bed scenes at Titanic-steamy level. XD

Calm down girl. You are judging him without even wait for the movie.

Are u sure you are disappointed because he is an idol or your fangirl heart cannot take it? I love Yoochun too. But I believe in him no matter what.

Secondly, is not like he will play in a porn movie or what. The movie is dark and thriller pack one.The bed scene is not the main focus of the movie, its more like cherry on top :)

i myself not that excited abt those scenes, but as long as it's needed to deliver the story or character, i'm cool with it. for such a top class director like bjh, i believe he won't add those scene just for mere reasons like fanservice, but it must have something to do with the story. and also, the original stage play of this movie has bed scene, so it must be important scene as well. But who knows, since they are in the middle of modifying the story for a better results, we must accept whatever to comes, since it's the best decision.

I believe it will still tolerable to watch..I trust Park Yoochun the most and this Sea Fog team as well..I just wish it is not another FF scenes coz it's really overboard for me..But the main story is not about romance right..So let's wait n see..

i'm not jealous. if he doing that scene he will be the first idol who doing sex scene. its a bad image for him and his group. i dont like the direction of this movie. why can they just focus the tension between kim yoon seok and yoochun or the crew. yes its not a porn movie but usually k-movie sex scene like soft porn.

If he really wants to be an actor, and it seems that he does, then I applaud him for taking a role based on the acting challenge rather than what it might do to his precious idol fanbase.
One of the issues I have with idol actors, besides the fact that most of them can't act, is that what they do is so perfectly calculated for maximum fanservice. They might as well be winking at the camera. I respect actors that take risks; a villain role, a dark character, a role that exposes them literally or figuratively.

With all due respect, this kind of fangirl talks really frustrates me. JYJ might be considered an idol group still, but they are grown-ass men that fought for years to extricate themselves from a controlling agency. Why should they allowed themselves to be dictated by a fandom full of fussy mother hens? As veterans of show biz, they and their advisers--not fans--know what's best for the group.

As you well know, Yoochun has never allowed his fandom to "own" him. Regardless of some fans' objections, he is committed to this project. I think that you are judging prematurely. The movie hasn't even started filming yet. But since it appears that your mind is already made up, then to watch or not to watch is your prerogative.

You're right^^. And, honestly, I don't think JYJ members can still be named "idols" since they don't even appear on tv as entertainers. They are artistes, singers, actors and like you said, all grown-up men. And they are free to have any activity they want. There's no mamagement company that can impose them what to do and what not just for the sake of the fangirls.
Actually, I think those butt-hurted fangirls are a minority, since most of JYJers I know (and I'm administrating a fansite so I'm in contact with many other fans all over the world) support Yoochun's project and we're actually drooling over the upcoming hot bed scenes. Also, majority of JYJ fans are not teenagers that can't handle a bed scene involving their oppa.
So, please, fangirls that are commenting here, either you're JYJer or cassie or simply a chunsa, try to be more mature and understanding, ok?
Park Yoochun fighting!!!! Sea fog fighting !!!! I'm sure Yoochun will do his best.

You ARE judging him. As I said, the main focus of the movie isn't the bed scene. And as the article above said, they currently amending the bed scene. So we doesn't know how's the bed scene going to look like. Yoochun has been in the entertainment biz for 10 years. He knows what he has to do than you and me. Yes he is an idol but he is also an actor now.

Lol. The bed scene could only take 30seconds or 5 minutes. We doesn't know.

I don't know why people are fussing about sex scene while the plot isn't nothing about that. Even dramas usually has bed scene. If you watched the stage play, you will know that the bed scene was far from porn and racy

How can we get a second Frozen Flower? A movie that was all about making a child for the King.

This is a story on sea. A lot of tension will build up within the crew and sometimes a relief in a stressful situation is sex. For grown-ups at least.

I think some people here are too concern about the bed scene. They currently changing the bed scene, modifying it. So we might get it or not.

I have to blame allkpop for make such controversial title. What a bitch. All of the Korean news doesn't have title like that, but they made up one to attract readers.

I am a JYJ fan, and a Chunsa. I am also a fan of Korean movies. If you paid attention to the expected plot of the movie, you have all the reasons to expect a movie that will be hard to watch. I t will most likely be a violent movie. You can watch Memories of murder (Sim Sung-Bo writer and Bong Joon-Ho writer/director), to have a taste of that violence. This is YC's debut on silver screen. This is not a romantic story, and not a movie for under-aged girls. Yoochun is a grown up man, not an innocent young boy. I believe in his choice, and I am glad he only listens to his instincts and principles. I am confident he will do an awesome job. Fighting YC.
