Ever since we fell in love with the drama “Reply 1988” and all of its main characters, we’ve been anticipating the actors’ comebacks. After seeing Hyeri and Ryu Jun Yeol in their new series, it’s finally Park Bo Gum’s turn to appear in his most recent series, “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds”! The wait is almost over, but before this drama arrives, we have to share a few of the reasons why we cannot get enough of Park Bo Gum as an actor and as a person!
While Park Bo Gum is now recognized as a talented actor, many are surprised to know that he is musically gifted as well! He began studying the piano when he was five, and always wanted to become a singer-songwriter. While he was in school, he sent a video of himself playing the piano and singing to many different talent agencies, and at one point he actually became a vocal trainee. However, he was advised to try acting, and the rest is history.
Even though he did not end up being a singer, there is no denying his musical talent in this video of him singing and playing his own accompaniment!
Obviously we love Park Bo Gum as an actor, but he is just as charming as a musician as well!
During his climb to fame, Park Bo Gum quickly gained the reputation of being a kind and thoughtful person. The accounts of his respectable behavior never seem to end, and it seems to be only a matter of time until we hear about his next mannerly encounter! Whether he is visiting his costar’s parents, working his hardest, or greeting fans, he never ceases to impress with his behavior.
Watch this adorable clip below of him being thoughtful, even when he has just been informed that he is being “abducted” and sent to Africa for the reality show “Youth Over Flowers.”
Even when he realizes that he can’t bring all of his luggage and he has only spent twelve hours in Korea, he looks after the filming crew first!
It’s no wonder that Park Bo Gum’s consideration has influenced his fans as well; they even made donations in honor of his birthday!
It may seem shallow to list his visuals as one of the reasons why we love Park Bo Gum, but his handsome features are impossible to ignore! After a photo of him in high school resurfaced, people were astonished to see how young he looks. There’s almost no difference between his appearance now and how he looked in school!
If the photo above somehow didn’t overwhelm you, then enjoy this clip from a photo shoot – it’s guaranteed to impress.
Those glasses were too much to handle, but we are not complaining!
Not only is he talented and thoughtful, Park Bo Gum is also humble about his accomplishments, and thankful for all of the love he has received. He tends to be overwhelmed by his fans’ love and is often brought to tears at fan meetings, where he profusely thanks fans for their support! He also shared at a fan meet that he enjoys taking the subway, and he sees no issue taking it as it is always punctual.
Once, an employee of Park Bo Gum’s agency shared how he insisted on hailing a taxi for the reluctant actor, only to turn around to see him hightailing it to the nearest subway station exit. Always keeping it real – that’s Park Bo Gum.
Another instance of Park Bo Gum’s modesty is when he made a cameo appearance on the 293rd episode of “Running Man.” When Song Ji Hyo contacts him for a mission, he is happy to help her and even lets her off with a very easy task. He merely wants to take a photo with her and receive her signature, flattering Ji Hyo with his request. Watch the adorable encounter below, as both of these stars become starstruck with one another!
It is nice to see Park Bo Gum remain humble, and not let his popularity get to his head!
As he seems to be genuinely sweet, it’s no surprise that he is incredibly innocent as well! Whether he causes an accident or someone pulls a prank on him, Park Bo Gum is always shocked when things go awry. The incident pictured below is just one of many of the unfortunate situations that befell him while he was on “Youth Over Flowers” with his “Reply 1988” costars. He manages to back up their vehicle into a hotel, smashing a taillight in the process. Of course no one blames the shocked and apologetic maknae, but none of them argue when he states that driving is not his “thing.”
Park Bo Gum gets shocked again when Red Velvet’s Irene pranks him during a live broadcast for April Fools’. The two of them were emcees for “Music Bank” and Irene picked the perfect moment to trick her innocent partner. Watch the adorable clip below where he tries to figure out what to do when Irene suddenly appears to be sick.
He stood as still as a statue for so long, it almost seems like he has never had someone pull a prank on him before!
2015 was an important year for this young actor, as he starred in “Coin Locker Girl” “I Remember You,” and “Reply 1988.” His popularity rose exponentially, and he was cast as the male lead in his upcoming drama “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.” It’s nice to see him as a main cast member! He’s been able to show off a wide variety of emotions and characters during his career and almost always wins the audience’s affections whenever he appears. He grabs our attention and hearts, whether he portrays a hardworking and innocent baduk champion, a psychopathic serial killer, or an optimistic student stuck in debt. This ability to transform completely is one of his greatest charms, and a talent that even some experienced actors will envy!
Enjoy this short compilation of his numerous characters and wide array of emotions, to experience the versatility of Park Bo Gum.
We absolutely love his intense and emotional acting!
Since Park Bo Gum has won over our affections, it’s no surprise that he is a favorite among the cast as well. He conveys a cute younger-brother image to his fellow actors, who enjoy interacting with him and watching over him during filming.
He charms them with his adorable antics and blinding smiles!
After “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” released footage of the script reading, we quickly realized that we are definitely in for another chemistry-filled series. Watch the adorable interactions between Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung below!
The two of them are just too cute together!
