Park Seo-joon needs no introduction in the world of rom-com K-Dramas. With a decade of acting prowess under his belt, the actor has charmed viewers with his versatility, but recent revelations hint at a new direction for this beloved star.
In a candid confession during a recent interview with a Korean media outlet, Park Seo-joon revealed his decision to steer clear of the beloved romantic comedy genre.
HERE'S WHAT HE SAID
He stated, “Till now, I’ve done many rom-coms, so I started wanting to do other genres.”
The desire for a breath of fresh air is palpable in his words. Despite his deep-rooted affection for rom-coms, the actor yearns to embrace diverse roles that challenge him as an artist. "Although each rom-com is different, I wanted to change the genre. I want to keep it fun. I’ve been challenging myself since ‘Secretary Kim,’ and I think I haven’t chosen a rom-com since then, and will continue to do so moving forward," Park Seo-joon affirmed.
With a touch of regret, he explained that while he cherishes the romantic genre, his eagerness to explore the uncharted territories of acting is irresistible. "Of course, I like rom-coms, and I think that the genre is challenging, so I’m not saying I don’t want to do rom-coms, just that my desire to try something different is greater," he added.
