JYJ’s Park Yoochun, who acts in SBS Wednesdays and Thursdays drama Three Days, is gaining popularity in China.
The office which Yoochun belongs to, revealed on the April 15 that in China, fans have formed a new nickname and started calling Yoochun “Tae Man”. This new nickname is formed by combining his drama character’s name Han Tae Gyeon’s “Tae” and “Man” (which means manliness). Not only this, the number of members in Yoochun’s fan community in China’s supporter site Baidu exceeds 230,000.
Yoochun’s popularity doesn’t ends here. Before the drama Three Days started airing, China fans gathered an estimated amount of 20 million yen (approximate USD195,500), and purchased the outdoor advertising located in Beijing, Chongwen Gate, Guorui Shopping Centre Main Door. On the advertisement, it wrote “365 days, 8760 hours, 525600 minutes, 31536000 seconds. We are hoping to meet you everyday (We are missing you everyday). And we wish Yoochun’s drama Three Days will be a big hit!”
China’s female adult fans even sent a coffee catering car straight to the drama film site, taking care of not only Yoochun, but also all the staff from the production crew.
In the meantime, China’s biggest animation site Youku and Tudou’s Three Days total production exceeds 300 million times. After an interval of two years, the SBS drama Rooftop Prince which was aired in Korea in 2012, was ranked 7th under the ‘Popularity Drama Ranking’.
Three Days shows soaring force while gathering an audience rating at 1st place in Korea at the same time.
