Park Shin Yang Banned, not Stalled

One may be banned physically, but one’s mind cannot be stalled.

Park Shin Yang, a top-list Korean actor received a ban from CODA in Dec 5th, 2008 because he filed a lawsuit against the production which owed him contract money from a TV drama production completed in 2007.  Park Shin Yang won this lawsuit last month (May 8th, 2009).  Right after the court in Seoul gave this verdict, CODA once again claimed that the production company was a victim and the ban is still on.

This ban may only stop Park Shin Yang from doing what he is really good at doing for the Korean TV drama audience.  But this ban cannot stall him from meeting his fans and contributing to the acting industry.  He held two fan meetings at Japan (Tokyo, and Kyoto) last month.  Both had great success.  Next, he is going to he a guest lecturer in NYIT starting mid-Sept 2009 for 4 months, till mid-Dec, 2009, teaching Master Acting and Directing with Professor Bruce Baek.  That’s the announced plan so for.

Here I quote the Serenity Prayer – let’s all learn from it:

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Waste no time sitting around, whining why unjust things happen to him, Mr. Park took the time to do something positive and constructive.  A fighter whom uses dandelion to symbolizes his “you-can’t-rid-me” spirit.

Hollywood producers, I don’t need to remind you that Mr. Park is available for grab, do I?   Here is his profile for your quick reference.

Mr. Park’s half-year ban anniversary is coming up this Friday.  Please join the “Counter Ban for Park Shin Yang” for their 5th email campaign on June 5th – email CODA and its members on June 5th, tell them you are not happy with this unfair and unjust ban decision, and ask them to give Mr. Park back to you.

Mr. Park, fighting!!

    I hope Coda will reconsider hte ban on Park Shin Yang since it will be really sad to waste his talent. He is one of Korea’s best actors and one of those responsible in getting me hooked on Korean dramas.

      Park’s performance is such a joy and eye-opening experience to watch. One of the finest – can’t agree more!
