Rising K-actor Park Bo Gum has such a sunny boy-next-door image, he’s basically the successor to Song Joong Ki making it even more adorable that they are good friends in real life. That makes me want Park Bo Gum to do a dark tortured type melodrama like Song Joong Ki did with Nice Guy, a transformation of image that also sharpens his immense acting talent. When I see this recent late spring pictorial of Park Bo Gum in Bazaar China, hanging out with a car in an traditional residence, I love the slow tinge of melancholy in the air. Having him do a tougher leading man drama role will have to wait as his next project is playing the Joseon prince in romance manhwa turned drama Moonlight Drawn by Clouds with Kim Yoo Jung. I don’t mind waiting for this boy to keep impressing me even if he coasts on the Answer Me 1988 buzz for awhile longer.
