Hello guys, it’s me, BOM! It’s great knowing that our actor/actress introduction has been widely favored, that gives BOM a lot of thoughts on the introduction of the next celebs.
Then I realized that I’ve only carried out the intro for Kim Da Mi, and haven’t mentioned her super famous counterpart – Park Seo Joon.
My mistake That’s why in today’s episode, BOM is going to talk you through this superb talented and adorable actor.
Let’s begin – Go Go~ I will be upset If you viewers don't hit the LIKE button I will be really sad 1.
BEFORE HIS DEBUT Park Seo Joon (Park Yong Kyu) was born on December 16, 1988, a Sagittarius.
Being the eldest son of the 3 in his family, he initially harbored a dream of being a baseball player, on the field with his brother.
However, things took an unfortunate turn when his father’s business went bankrupt At the time, the tuition fees for the 3 boys were a massive burden to the family, making it difficult for the boys to continue their baseball-playing dream.
Upon recognizing the talent of his sibling, Seo Joon brought things to the table with his father and gave up on baseball.
Giving up on his interest left Seo Joon with a monotonous school life Back then, there was only Animation club available as his greatest comfort He became very excited for gaining popularity after his first time cosplaying at the fair His ever-since passion to become an actor encountered his family’s disapproval “How can such an introvert be an actor?!” Born in a family with business tradition, it is no surprise that his parents didn’t encourage him on his actor dream But Park Seo Joon wasn’t any average man who would easily give up In an interview, he once said: “I didn’t engage in show business for money.
Acting came to me as an unexpected destiny.
To persuade his parents, he focused vigorously on his study and consequently ranked 5th in class (previously 36th) His parents contended with his pursuit, yet they required him to maintain his grades, no detriment allowed Upon remembering that time, he said: “I couldn’t continue acting if my rankings ever let be dropped 3 times.
” His following 2 years witnessed his most vigorous efforts as he always rushed to the acting institutes after a long day at school In the next 3 years, Seo Joon only had 3-4 sleeping hours As a reward for his relentless endeavor, he was admitted to the acting department of Seoul Institute of the Arts (서울예술대학교) After enrolling in the course, Seo Joon used to experience a loss of direction.
He said “I tried my best in the last 3 years to be admitted to this institute, but afterwards, I lost my greatest attempt” Comparing himself to his peers who started their career from an early age made Seo Joon feel left behind Many people around him said: “It’s already late for you to debut, hurry up” , but he could find no chance to be on set As a consequence, our guy experienced a rough time in his career.
However, Park Seo Joon overcame his anxiety “Regardless of my late debut, I was dying to be an actor” After changing his view, at his 19, he entered military service So that there would be no halt in his career Well all his fans don't have to worry about his military service inference from now on 2.
AFTER DEBUT After being discharged, Park Seo Joon signed with Key East Entertainment But for various reasons, after casting and filming some scenes for several times, these films were all eradicated.
After ups and downs, Park Seo Joon once or twice wondered whether he should give up on his acting career.
But as BOM told you at the very beginning of this episode, Park Seo Joon isn’t someone who will give up that easily His goal was to be an actor, so he got himself together and learned kick-boxing, kendo, hapkindo, horse-riding, etc.
to prepare for imminent roles Officially debuted through the release of “I remember” MV (Bang Young Guk) in 2011, his career started taking off His first series “Dream High 2” was highly appraised SiWoo was his first step to the world of acting.
In the following year, his “Park Hyun Tae” in “Pots of Gold” (금 나와라, 뚝딱!) won our guy great public attention.
At first, his character, a rebellious gangster, was much disliked by the audience But gradually, his amorous character conquered the audience’s heart The movie marked his first award for acting, and was also a significant turning point in his career.
Appointed for the MC position at Music Bank of KBS, he attracted a considerable amount of teenage fans within his reign – in one and a half year.
FILMOGRAPHY Never does Park Seo Joon want to be molded in one same character type, he embarked on every role he could From a high-school student in art school in “Dream High”, a fiery Yoon Dong Ha in “Witch’s Romance” a funny and charming Oh Ri On in “Kill Me Heal Me” a warm-hearted dictator Ji Sung Joon in “She was pretty”, a confident Go Dong Man who always thrives to become a professional fighter in “Fight for my way” a super-rich narcissist Lee Young Joon in “What’s wrong with Kim Secretary?” or a risk-taking Park Sae Royi in “Itaewon Class”, etc.
During his 9-year acting career, his characters have never been identical The great part about Park Seo Joon is that audience don’t have the feeling of seeing Mr.
Park himself on screen, but rather harmonizing themselves with his character in the scenes With this great acting, it can be said that he has been really painstaking for every of his roles.
To not lengthen the speech, let BOM introduce to you his 2 famous films “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim?” and “Itaewon Class” With more than 50 million views for the webtoon version, “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim?” has Park Seo Joon play the role of the super narcissist Lee Young Joon.

=)))) Just kidding, everything but modesty He always overrates himself as “a perfect person that can never belong to anyone”, and changes only take place when he unexpectedly falls in love with his 9-year secretary He isn’t a perfect 10 on the scale of 10, but his narcissism is the most adorable feature Obviously, Park Seo Joon has done quite a nice job with this character At the heated period of this series, everyone believed that Park Seo Joon has that “4D charisma” Not to mention the perfect chemistry he and Park Min Joon have in the series His next series is “Itaewon Class” in which he removed the fancy and hilarious Lee Young Joon to become the concerning and serious Park Sae Royi One and a half year since “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim?” is over, Park Seo Joon once again proves himself with this series Also a webtoon-based series about the youth’s startup, their pursuit of freedom in the Itaewon borough, the series has gained great public favor and reached an impressive rating As a professional actor, Seo Joon has experienced 42 times of haircutting to maintain his unique “chestnut” hair style Within the next 6 months, he constantly cut his hair once every 4 days You can’t mess with his seriousness 4.
LOVE FOR ACTING It can be said that, to Park Seo Joon, there’s nothing he can’t do to fulfill his roles Much as he received ferocious objections on undertaking hot scenes as Yoon Dong Ha in Witch’s Romance for complete emotional expression or kiss scenes with his best friend Choi Woo Sik in “Family” sitcom, he’s ready to face adversity for his roles In 2015, Park Seo Joon hosted a fanmeeting to meet up with his fans On that day, his father appeared.
When the MC asked “Now what do you think when you look at your son?” he replied: “My son is the best” The recognition of his father who once disapproved of his pursuit made our guy burst into tear for happiness He didn’t hesitate to cry in public at that time More than anyone else, Park Seo Joon was longing for this recognition after years of endeavor His family’s recognition was every he ever wanted, not any prizes or cachet Although he is always a talkative and humorous person on the screen, he is, in fact, a taciturn introvert behind the scenes.
He shares that, for the love of acting, he is more sociable and he’s trying more and more every day.
Being an actor is, perhaps, the only force that can pull him out of his comfort zone.
Park Seo Joon is persistent with his decisions Although his starting point is later than his peers, he always tries to better himself day by day At his 32, while his 2 brothers have already settled down with their families and followed in their father's business footstep, Park Seo Joon follows his own path and continuously improves his performances BOM hopes that you will be filled with positive energy after watching this clip about Park Seo Joon to apply in your everyday life Sometimes, being stubborn is a good thing BOM will be back in the next episode with more amazing actors/actresses Don’t forget to hit the LIKE button and SUBSCRIBE for more updates of BOM Annyeong~.
