If I nominate Park Shi Hoo for hardest working actor in Korean entertainment at this very moment, I don’t think anyone could possibly disagree. Just hours after wrapping up filming for his hit drama The Princess’s Man (I’m not done watching, so don’t tell me the ending or ask me what I think – I love it so far is all I can say), he attended his now trademark fan viewing of the final episode with members of his fan club in Seoul. The next morning he was on a flight to Busan to walk the red carpet for the APAN event that night, APAN being the acronym for Asian Pacific Actor’s Network, an organization he is involved with.
I know Park Shi Hoo has made a name for himself playing second leads who end up swiping the heroine at the end of the drama, or just stealing the show all around, but after TPM, I don’t think we’ll ever see him as a second lead again. I still think his acting is splotchy, but when he nails it he’s on fire. And even if some folks I know call him an albino bird with moobs, everyone is pretty much in agreement on this – he rocks in TPM! Have some cute pictures of him on the red carpet at BIFF, with a very boyish haircut to boot.
