Park Seo-Joon mentions his friendship with BTS’ V, Park Hyung-Sik, and Choi Woo-Shik and reveals how they all became close despite the age differences!
For the December issue of Star Style magazine ‘HIGH CUT,’ actor Park Seo-Joon so gracefully decorated the cover. He showcased a variety of “street style” outfits, much different from the image we had established of him with a suit and tidy hairstyle.
During the interview that followed the photoshoot, Park Seo-Joon talked about his upcoming film ‘The Divine Fury.’ Park said, “just by looking at the genre, you may feel like this will be just another action film. However, I think it’s going to be a rather heartwarming piece. First, I think the draft itself will be a lot of fun. I’ve always wanted to challenge myself in these types of films, so I’m very excited in general.”
Park Seo-Joon also mentioned his latest drama “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” and revealed the secret to pulling off rather unrealistic settings and lines. The actor said, “that was the hardest part. People had this certain expectation for me, especially those who have seen the original comic. It was a lot of pressure for me to act in accordance to the original work, yet still having to show a new aspect to it.”
He continued, “it took me a while to figure out the tone and the way my character talks. I was always thinking how to not make things awkward with my gestures, always wondering if this particular gesture would go along with the characteristics of Lee Young-Joon. However, I was getting greedy. I didn’t want to let go of this chance because I worried that with my age, I wouldn’t get another opportunity to play in the role of such a character. Also, I knew there will be more dramas based on web-toons now, and there’s bound to be another character like Lee Young-Joon. I wanted to be the first one.”
At last, Park Seo-Joon mentioned his friendship with BTS’ V, Park Hyung-Sik, and Choi Woo-Sik. More specifically, the actor explained how they became so close despite their age differences, which plays a significant role in developing relationships in South Korea.
He said, “I don’t realize I’m older than they when I meet with them. They talk formally to me, but except for that, we are just like any other friends. I think I’ve been partnering up with younger actors in my latest works, so that’s definitely had some impact on my social life. Naturally, we became close.”
