[News] SS501’s Park Jung Min has enjoyed a chain of interests from casting producers since he played in a Japanese drama series


On July 18, Park Jung Min, one of the members of SS501, held a press conference at the Tokyo International Forum to introduce August’s Love Song, a Japanese mobile drama series he has just completed to shoot just before the UN Concert, under the title Friend’s Whistle! Act for Tomorrow, started. It’s unprecedented for a press conference to attract more than 4000 people.

Park has garnered much attention from Japanese media and fans for his excellent acting skill and outstanding fluency in Japanese he has shown in the series as a lead character.

Park’s agency says, “Since he appeared in the series, he has received a chain of calls from casting producers. It seems that his fluent Japanese and solid acting performance drove them to move. This is likely to be a great chance for him to gain more awareness of him as an actor.”

In the UN Concert that started as the press conference ended, Park was loudly cheered by the audience when he first released the theme song of August’s Love Song he wrote and sung for its sound track.

After the concert, a series of interviews with entertainment news channels will be followed. Back inKorea, he will attend the shooting of aTaiwandrama series to play a lead character, which is expected to give him another chance to expand his acting career.
