Block B’s P.O discussed his acting debut in “Degree of Love” in a recent pictorial.
P.O shared how he came to star in the drama, explaining, “I was active in musicals, and instead of taking my company’s offers for dramas, I first asked to participate in auditions. You are limited if you only take roles that are offered, and I also wanted to experience the challenges my musical friends faced. That way I could also share the same concerns as my friends.”
P.O also revealed the feedback he received from his “Degree of Love” co-stars following the end of the drama. He chose the most memorable comments, saying, “Sim Hee Sub [said] ‘I like your acting style,’ Lee Kang Min [said] ‘I think I experienced the different air that comes from people who grew up with love, like you,’ and Yang Se Jong [said] ‘It was good because I felt [your] consideration while acting with you.'”
After “Degree of Love,” P.O has been busy as the leader of “Boy,” a theater production he made with his high school friends. P.O revealed his affection and responsibility for the work, sharing, “We do everything ourselves from the play to the stage production. I can’t explain in words the feeling of [seeing] something you’ve only imagined become a reality. My friends and I teared up before going up for our first performance. I feel that we are really doing enjoyable work every time.” P.O also added, “I’m planning a long-term performance next spring, so please look forward to it,” raising anticipation for his future activities.
25-year-old P.O touched on his role model as well, saying, “I want to be a person who knows how to love and also receive love, someone who doesn’t make only himself happy, but also those around them happy.”
