It’s been almost a month and Filipino fans are still over the moon that South Korean actor Park Seo Jun took the centerstage at the Smart Hallyu Hangouts, a virtual meet where they got to watch the interview with the Itaewon Class lead actor. 

During the hangout, Park Seo Jun shared how he misses being with his Filipino fans since his last fan meeting in the Philippines in September 2019, but he still feels happy to be with his fans even just virtually for now due to the pandemic. 

Some most searched questions by the audience about his career and personal life were thrown to the Fight For My Way lead actor that he willingly answered, a few fan messages were read by the actor himself while 2 lucky supporters were given the chance to even have a video call with him. 

Grateful for technology, fans were still able to get to know more about Park Seo Jun, and here are some of the things they discovered about their favorite oppa during the event. 

He treats his Bichon Frise dog as his friend 

We often see Park Seo Jun’s dog, Simba, on his social media posts so he was naturally asked about him. He said that he treats Simba more like his friend than his pet. He even joked that probably in dog years, they are of the same age.  Further, he shared that he doesn’t train Simba to do tricks since he doesn’t want him to be stressed but he definitely loves spending time with him. This really shows his affection for Simba. 

He thinks action on TV shows and in real life are very different 

When he was asked what was his secret as an actor, he said that action in real life and on TV differs in a way that the latter is more like choreography so he has to practice really well. And his secret was he quickly picks up on choreography and he actually enjoys the physical activity. This is also the reason why he played a lot of characters like Fight For my Way that involves a lot of action. 

He’d prefer to visit a vacation spot if given the chance soon 

During the hangout, Park Seo Jun reminisced about his visit to Boracay. So he was asked if he does want to be in a scenic vacation spot or a city when traveling for vacation. He said that it really depends from time to time but if given the chance now, he’d prefer to be in a vacation spot so he can relax. Fans would probably be looking forward to seeing his beach photos if that would really happen especially because of his physique. *wink wink*

His personal goal 

In a segment where Park Seo Jun was asked a question for each letter of his initials, he was asked about his personal goal in life. He said he has many goals but it all sums up to being a good person. They followed that up with a question on what his idea of a good person is.

Park Seo Jun said it’s someone who is a good influence, one who works well and also when it comes to family matters, someone who is a good son or daughter. He shared that he’s not blind to the fact that his fans are influenced by him so he lives up to the role of being a good influencer. 

He likes hanging out with his family 

On the same segment, he was asked where he stays the most at home and he said he likes staying in the living room. He currently lives with his parents so he likes staying there so he gets to see them and spend time with them while eating or watching TV. He makes up for lost time through that since he barely gets to see them when he’s filming a new project. Now doesn’t that show he’s really a good and sweet son? 

He found his role in What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim so exciting 

During one part of the hangout, he was shown an excerpt of his role in What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim and he got so embarrassed. He said that his narcissistic role on the show is the total opposite of his personality. Nevertheless, he found the role very exciting and fun to portray since he was able to try a lot of things and had fun with his character. 

He likes to keep a fun and enjoyable environment on set 

Park Seo Jun was also asked about his romantic comedy Kdrama She Was Pretty and he shared that there were a lot of scenes where they were laughing and goofing around. So he was asked if he’s the kind of person who is laughing all the time or someone who makes others laugh.

He shared that he doesn’t make others laugh because he figured out that when he tries to do so, it doesn’t really come off as funny. But he insisted that he’s still someone who makes sure that the environment on set is fun and enjoyable for the people he’s working with. 

His fans’ love and support gets him going 

Some fans gave really heartwarming messages for Park Seo Jun that he was so moved by all of it. He said that everything that’s been happening to him and he’s been blessed with was made possible because of his fans and that their love and support is what really motivates him and keeps him going. 

He had always wanted to be an actor 

Park Seo Jun was asked in one of the segments what job he would have if he were not an actor. He really pondered about it and wasn’t able to give an answer because he admitted that he wanted to be an actor ever since he was young. But he also said that he’s not closing his doors to doing something else other than acting.

He considers a few things before saying yes to an acting role  

During the hangout, Park Seo Jun’s different acting roles were discussed so he was asked what he considers when choosing a project. He shared that before, it was just character-related but now, he considers if it is entertaining and fun for the viewers and he also thinks it’s important to think about the message it’s trying to convey to the viewers. 

He has two upcoming films

Fans are definitely elated to see Park Seo Jun back on Kdramas or better yet on the big screen so he was asked about his upcoming projects. One he has on the pipeline is his movie “Dream” which they still need to finish filming in England and will be coming out soon. He also has another movie “Concrete Utopia” which he filmed in Korea. He has also shot to global fame having been cast in the upcoming Marvel movie.

Netflix confirms second season for ‘Squid Game’

Let the games begin (again)

Mi TV P1

Besides the slew of new Marvel series from Disney+, the arguable leader of the last year’s streaming world is Squid Game. No other series has been more effective at bringing together millions of viewers in a communal clamor of “you’ve got to see this.” Now that the first season has come and gone, everyone’s asking what’s next for the South Korean thriller.

Well, if you’re a fan of the series, you’ll have more on your plate soon. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos has confirmed that Squid Game is “absolutely” coming back for a second season. The confirmation was announced during the company’s recent fourth-quarter earnings call. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk has also confirmed that he has plans for a follow-up story.

A second season might take a while, though. Neither Sarandos nor Hwang have confirmed a set schedule for the title’s production. Further, neither party has hinted at what additional content for the series might look like.

Squid Game was one of Netflix’s most popular titles last year. With enough development, the South Korean title can easily turn into the next major franchise for the streaming platform. Even without Netflix’s help, the series has already sparked a major trend in pop culture including costumes and video games.
