Interview: Park Bo Gum Talks Favorite Songs And Role Models Ahead Of His Asia Fan Meeting Tour

Park Bo Gum is soon embarking on an Asian Fan Meeting Tour and ahead of his stop in Jakarta, Indonesia, Mecima Pro connected us with the breakout actor to hold an interview. If you can’t make it to the tour, we hope you will enjoy a little peek into his mind from us.

But if you are in or around Jakarta remember to buy tickets to see him (in real life!) when he stops at The Kasablanka Hall, Kota Kasablanka on January 13! Tickets are on sale now at

Now, if you’ve ever wondered about who Park Bo Gum jams out to in his (limited) free time or who he sees as his role model – read on (and prepare to smile):

What songs do you currently like right now?

I’m listening to “Last Dance” by BIGBANG nowadays.

What are some acting roles you want to try in the future?

If I get a chance, I would like to try as many characters as possible. I want to try teen romance, before I get too old. Since I wore many beautiful hanboks in “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds,” how about I show the beauty of Korean school uniforms in my next project? (laugh) And I want to try a music-inspired project, like the film “Begin Again” or “Sing Street.”

Who would you say is your acting role model, or an actor that inspires you?

I believe every person I meet through each project is a role model. I learn not only acting skills but also life wisdom through them.

Do you have anything that you’d like to say to your international fans?

Even though I have never officially worked in any other countries, thank you so much for loving and supporting me. I am more than grateful to have a chance to meet my fans through this Asia Tour. I hope to make beautiful memories for all of us. Stay healthy, and I hope you will have many happy events in your lives.

Thank you to Park Bo Gum for his honest answers and to Mecima Pro for coordinating the interview. All of you lucky fans in Jakarta, you’re in for a real treat at his fan meeting!
