I totally get why Park Bo Gum may not be a lot of people’s cup of tea, though I think way more people like than dislike him based on his wild popularity in Korea. He’s got this beaming smile and clean cut good looks, liking him can be likened to loving white bread but I find way more depth in his acting than his looks convey. It’s way better for him to take a break from romantic leading man and take on action/thriller/mystery/horror genres for the next year or two to re-establish his non-heartthrob cred which he had earlier on. Much like his real life BFF Song Joong Ki getting dirty for A Werewolf Boy and turning into a womanizing schemer in Nice Guy before heading back to K-drama sanitized male lead territory in Descendants of the Sun. Up next for Park Bo Gum is playing a clone opposite Gong Yoo in sci-fi movie Seo Bok so that’s a big step in the right direction. On his off days he can shoot more Coca Cola CFs like this one and just spread the sunshine.
