For those who follow me on Twitter, you all know of my current obsession with Park Seo Joon! So this post shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Seriously, where has he been all my life?? I just love him so much after watching Witch’s Romance, as you can see from ALL the posts I’ve written about the drama. Last year I was really into Lee Jong Suk and Yoo Yun Suk, this year 2014 definitely is Park Seo Joon for me. I’m realizing there’s a pattern going on now because I always have IT boys I go crazy over every year. Previous years included Kim Soo Hyun, Yoon Shi Yoon and Song Joong Ki. Don’t get me wrong, I still adore them all of course but Park Seo Joon is my bias these days. Just so many young male actors these days who are so fabulous, my poor fan-girl heart really can’t take it sometimes lol.
I was telling a couple friends before that it’s too bad Witch’s Romance was aired on cable, if it was shown on one of the major broadcasting network stations, Park Seo Joon’s popularity would be even more explosive I’d bet, maybe to the level of Lee Jong Suk’s popularity last year, quite possibly. Park Seo Joo I admit, isn’t someone you see at first glance and think he’s incredibly striking or drop dead gorgeous, but he does have that genuine boy-next-door charming quality about him. It’s not only until you see him acting on screen do you realize how attractive and charismatic he truly is. He really plays his character Dong Ha to a T, who’s so sweet, lovable, earnest, and all around wonderful guy, I think any girl/woman would die to have him. Anyone who knows me relatively well, would know how much I love my cute boys and my ideal type is the boy-next-door kind of look. As mentioned in a previous post, I love Seo Joon’s expressions throughout the drama, you can see even when the scene isn’t focused on him, he’s still so in character and constantly reacting to all of his surroundings. For a rookie, I must say he’s doing a mighty fine job! I feel like I must watch his previous dramas now, even though they are dramas I’m not that interested in (i.e One Warm Word and I Summon You, Gold) but for Seo Joon I’m willing at least to skim through it to see how he is. His drama debut was in that awful mistake of a drama Dream High 2, and I do admit skimming through it when it aired. I skimmed it again a while ago to see Seo Joon and I almost didn’t recognize him with the guyliner. If I really like his roles in his previous dramas, I’ll most likely tweet about it or even blog about it too, it really depends.
I first saw Seo Joon in Running Man (184) and he left quite an impression with the audience and the RM members. He was on the previous week’s episode (198) and he’s so great in variety. He’s very competitive, athletic *ahem* and has the body to prove it. I hope he’ll come on the show more often, the last 2 episodes he’s been in have all been hilarious. His trademark song on the show now is Frozen’s Let It Go and I just about died laughing every time it played. It would be nice to have him on the show with less guests, so he’d have more screen time and they should play more athletic games, which I can tell he really excels at. It was so cute when he got paired off with Song Ji Hyo and they played the pickled radish game. They totally had no problems with their lips touching because according SJH, “We are actors!” Damn right LOL. My bff said she loved the episode too, especially SJ who was so entertaining and kept smiling so handsomely throughout!
It’s too bad not THAT many people are watching the drama and seeing how amazingly wonderful Seo Joon is and his off the charts blazing chemistry with Uhm Jung Hwa. I tried to get a few of my friends to watch it, but they simply aren’t interested. One friend even Google’ed up him up after I was raving my love for him and saw a horrible photo of him and said “No offense, he’s not that cute” *SIGH* Oh well that’s too bad, they’re just all missing out, I can have Seo Joon ssi all to myself then pwahaha. SJ recently landed his first role in a film *hurray* but I really hope he does another drama soon where he can play the lead again. I’m going to really miss seeing him every Monday and Tuesday. I’ll just re-watch WR if I’m missing him badly.
On a bit of a random note, is it just me, but I REALLY like the way Seo Joon’s eyelids cover his eyeballs LOL. You all know what I’m talking about right?? It’s really unique and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone with that kind of “eye” look. Oh and by the way did you know Park Seo Joon has already completed his military service? Yay!! Which means he doesn’t need to interrupt his rising acting career and us fans won’t have to cry because he doesn’t need to leave for 2 years. What a smart boy to get the mandatory military service out of the way first *cheers* Anyways I’m just going to spam you with tons of photos and some videos in the rest of the post. Enjoy!!
Here’s 2 videos from KeyEast where’s doing some photo shoots. Trust me, you’ll want to watch it!
Here’s another cute, fun and summery shoot he did with fellow labelmate cutie Lee Hyun Woo and child actress Kim So Hyun
I tried to look up PSJ in Dream High 2 and came across this video of him singing and dancing in a group with JB and JR of the current group GOT7. SJ looks almost like a completely different person right?
Here’s some really fun photos from the photoshoot for the poster of Witch’s Romance
And lastly some BTS photos from the drama!
