Park Seo Joon recently teamed up with W Korea to grace the cover of the July issue!

In the interview following his photo shoot, Park Seo Joon spoke about his 10th debut anniversary, thoughts on his future, and more.

Park Seo Joon made his entertainment industry debut in 2011 with an appearance in Bang Yong Guk’s “I Remember” music video. This year marks his 10th debut anniversary, for which he held an online fan meeting titled “Park Seo Joon, Comma.” The actor commented, “Already 10 years? Seeing that I’m still doing it, I figure that I’m doing well. When I was in my twenties, I was just happy to be able to work. Now, I think that I have to expand a bit more from there. I began thinking that being good at just one field of work is not the end.”

He also shared, “When I do interviews, I’m often asked which project was a turning point for me, but every single one was a turning point to me. My thoughts on any given project can be different from objective indicators or the reactions of others. There are often times when projects are divided into successful vs. less successful ones based on numbers. However, every project I’ve appeared in has created an opportunity for me to grow from my past self and experience new things.”

The interviewer mentioned Park Seo Joon’s ability to portray all kinds of genres, and the actor explained that he’s thankful to have developed an image due to the characters he’s portrayed over time, but being an actor means more than just appearance.

He elaborated, “I began as an extra and have gotten to this point by slowly increasing my screen time. What I realize now is that working hard at the role given is basic for actors, and what is do in addition to that is extremely important. I’m talking about stuff like attitude on set and character. This isn’t the correct answer but just my personal opinion.”

The actor also discussed his experience on “Youn’s Kitchen” and more recently, “Youn’s Stay.” In the latest season, Park Seo Joon worked in the kitchen rather than as wait staff, and he was asked whether that was more comfortable for him.

He replied, “I just do the role I’m given. Since they said I was in charge of cooking this time, I just thought that I’d have to work hard for the kitchen to run smoothly. Also, since I was able to show a lot of sides of myself in ‘Youn’s Kitchen,’ I hoped for Choi Woo Shik to get more attention this time. Woo Shik is good at English. Everyone who appeared on the show did their best in their individual roles.”

To conclude, Park Seo Joon spoke more about his future. He commented, “Two years ago, I began to have this thought. Working on a project is so fun and makes me happiest, but I don’t know if I’ll live the rest of my life like this. Rather than say ‘I’m going to live as an actor forever,’ I want to leave a lot of possibilities open. Nobody knows the future, and acting may not be everything in life. I’m also a bit curious what my life will look like in 10 years.”

Park Seo Joon added, “Thankfully, this work is both what I enjoy and what I’m good at. Since I want to do better, I will constantly work harder, but I also think, ‘Can I do that for the rest of my life?’” With a laugh he continued, “What I’m sure of is that I’ll keep acting for years to come.”

Earlier, Sports Chosun had reported that BTS‘ V and Park Hyung Sik would make guest appearances in Peakboy’s new music video. It is now confirmed that all the members of Wooga Squad would appear in Peakboy’s upcoming hip-hop single. Written and composed by Peakboy, “Gyopo Hair” is a tribute to the hairstyle that was popular in the 90s. The song will release on July 25 at 2:30 pm IST.

For the uninitiated, the Wooga Squad comprises five members – BTS singer V, actors Park Seo-joon, Choi Woo-shik and Park Hyung-sik, and artiste Peakboy. While V, Park Seo-joon and Park Hyung-sik formed a friendship when they worked in the K-drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth, Park Seo-joon introduced the duo to his other friends Choi Woo-sik and Peakboy. Today, the group is called Wooga Squad.

During their special reunion in early July, the Wooga Squad members revealed what they have in the pipeline. Park Seo-joon said that he was currently shooting for Concrete Utopia. There’s also much speculation that he will be in Captain Marvel 2 as well.

V revealed BTS was working on their new album. Park Hyung Sik said he was busy with the drama, Happiness. Choi Woo Shik remarked, “Hyung Sik actually came right after his drama filming. He has to go again right after this, so I’m grateful.”

Park Hyung-sik worked with Park Seo-joon and BTS singer V in Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth. Their collaboration led to the trio becoming great friends. Eventually, Park Seo-joon introduced the duo to his other friends Choi Woo-sik and Peakboy. Today, the group is identified as Wooga Squad.

While the group has always gushed about each other, Park Hyung-sik had once called BTS singer V and Park Seo-joon his soulmates. The actor, speaking with a Korean publication, described his bond.

“When working on projects, you meet people you can get along with. There are people you keep in touch with effortlessly. I consider the [two] members I worked with in the drama ‘Hwarang’ as my soulmates. I continue to see them, and I tend to say things such as ‘What are you doing?’ or ‘Let’s eat together’ frequently,” he said, speaking with Star News in 2019, as reported by Soompi.

Later that year, The Heirs star also called V, Park Seo-joon and Choi Woo-shik his ‘refuge.’ Speaking with Herald Pop, Park Hyung-sik said, “We meet often and make completely ridiculous lame jokes. It’s so fun. They’re my only refuge, a place where I can heal.” He added, “Honestly, it’s not easy for everyone to be a good match, but when we got together, it was crazy. Everyone’s so funny.”

Reacting to the interview, Choi Woo-shik told Herald Pop, “I saw the interview in which Park Hyung Sik said, ‘They’re my only refuge.’ Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Sik, and Kim Tae Hyung (BTS’s V) are all kindred spirits.” The Parasite star added, “You need friends to share the stress and worries that occur while working, so I completely understand why Park Hyung-sik said, ‘They’re my only refuge.’ I also think of it that way. It’s fun to share our concerns with each other, and it’s also fun to play together. They are friends like no other.”
