News: ‘Turned Actor’ Cheondung, “The 5 years of MBLAQ activities was precious..A golden age”

This was what Cheondung said about the last 5 years of activity as a singer from the group MBLAQ.

The fashion magazine SURE just released the photos of now-turned actor Cheondung for their April issue.

With his real name Park Sanghyun, he will begin acting in the MBC weekend drama airing this April “Make a Woman Cry” as the male lead Song Chang-eui’s son Hyunseo. (A/N: Previous reports have been nephew.)  To be able to act as a weak/fragile character, he is working hard to adjust his current diet and stand before the camera with a look that has a sense of darkness.

This is not Cheondung’s first time acting. Having just entered into a new agency and with a fresh determination to begin the first step, he worked on the pictorial and interview with the look and intention of seriousness.

There is a part of Hyunseo that is similar to my real personality, the part that is fragile and that feels sadness is similar, but the way of speaking is different and that I am currently studying on. It’s not easy to do.

He told us that he treasures the three characters of the name MBLAQ (엠블랙), thinking of the five years of activity as a “golden age,” while expressing the openness to the idea of change.

Check out Cheondung’s cool interview and photoshoot on the April issue of SURE.

News: Update on actor Park Sanghyun

Cheondung will be going by his real name Park Sanghyun for his acting credits.

His latest role in the weekend drama Make a Woman Cry, Hyunseo, is the nephew of the male lead Jinwoo (to be played by actor Song Chang-eui). Hyunseo lost his father when he was a child and is living with a broken heart because of it. His weak body is his complex (insecurity), because of the strong, masculine image for men.

Cheondung’s unique and clean image, together with his delicate sensibility, is expected to evoke motherly affection and shake up women’s hearts with his acting.

Cheondung on his determination for the role:

“Make a Woman Cry” is the first step (among many other activities) as actor Park Sanghyun under the new agency. I think this is a great opportunity to make a good impression on the public. With a fresh outlook, I will put forth a lot of effort (into acting).

News: More info on Cheondung’s new role

Cheondung’s character in Make A Woman Cry, Hyunseo, had to take a leave of absence from Graduate School due to a health problem. He is said to have a heart as fragile as glass. Born without a father, he received much love from his grandparents and mother. But still, somewhere in his weak heart darkened.

Cheondung says about his casting into the role,

To be part of a good work such as “Make A Woman Cry” truly makes me happy. As well as Director Kim Geunhong and writer Ha Chungok, I came to admire many actors and to stand among seniors and teachers is really an honor for me. For the many fans and viewers to be completely immersed into the drama, I will try to show solid acting by learning from the most basic foundations.

Caring for Hyunseo is a nurse named Hyojung, who will be played by Lee Da-in, the daughter and sister of actresses Kyeon Miri and Lee Yubi, and previously acted as Hyun Bin’s first love in the movie Fatal Encounter. A pure character with a kind-hearted and innocent personality dating a bad guy whom she loves like no other, Hyunseo falls in a one-sided love with her and thus establishes the conflict in their story.

News: Cheondung to act in upcoming MBC drama airing this April

This will be Cheondung’s first official activity under APOP/Mystic Ent. and his second major role in a drama. He is set to play the handsome son, Hyunseo, of a wealthy family (whose mother, Eunsoo, will be played by actress) in the upcoming drama entitled “Make A Woman Cry.” A young man in his 20s, the character is described to have a “gentle personality” but also with a “dark side.” (A/N: It’s a slight departure from the friendly, cheerful and cute image he portrayed in Nail Shop Paris. Although his character Jin then also had a difficult past, it helped him become the good person he was, so it’s interesting to see how Hyunseo will be like this time.)

The new MBC Drama will be replacing Rosy Lovers in its primetime slot every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) at 8:40PM KST after it ends in April. Written by Ha Chung-ok (whose works also include Pots of Gold) and to be directed by Kim Geunhong (who also directed Gyebaek and Heojoon, The Original Story), it was also previously announced that actress Kim Jung-eun (Lovers in Paris) will be starring as the main character Deok-in, a pivotal figure in the lives of students as she herself tries to recover from the loss of her son.
