Is it just me or does Park Seo Joon and Lee Jong Seok give up strikingly similar vibes? It’s probably always been there but since I’ve never paid attention to Lee Jong Seok until recently after Dr. Stranger, it feel like discovering a new set of facetwins. Park Seo Joon is in the pages of the July issues of Marie Claire and High Cut magazines, both of which almost always delivers great pictorials. Instead of dull uninspired shot angles, Marie Claire mixes and matches full body snaps with close ups of the models face as well as plays around with filters and clothing color combinations while High Cut loves sharp geometric shots that are edgy without being weird. Park Seo Joon’s pictorial excellently captures a varied appreciation of his boyish looks mixed with sexy charisma. He’s one of those young up-and-coming actors that has the looks to be a leading man and the acting talent to keep building his resume.
Park Seo Joon is also a very savvy project picker and his last three dramas have all yielded great feedback for him starting from supporting turns in I Summon You, Gold! to Warm Words and his most recent being a leading man turn in the cable drama Witch’s Romance. I wasn’t interested enough in WR to watch it all the way through since I already love the TW-original My Queen and didn’t see anything drastically different in WR to warrant spending another 16 hours with the same story. But the few episodes I watched was a treat for Park Seo Joon alone and he’s one of those actors that seamlessly gets into whatever character yet bring a sliver of his own unique flavor that carries through all his roles. I hope he does another drama this year and if not perhaps a movie supporting role to keep pushing himself when he’s still young and the sky’s the limit.
