5 Dramas Featuring Park Seo Joon

5 Dramas Featuring Park Seo Joon

Park Seo Joon ascended quickly from a background character to Korean drama superstar. His handsome good looks and character adaptability have made him a popular male lead for romance and action dramas.

About Park Seo Joon

Born on December 16, 1988 in Seoul, South Korea. Park Seo Joon started acting in minor roles and worked his way to male lead characters. PSJ did his mandatory military service right out of school, so he can focus solely on acting going forward.

She Was Pretty

I thought PSJ did a satisfactory job in She Was Pretty, but he was dramatically upstaged by Choi Si Won’s second lead who stole the show for many viewers. The show is about a woman who has been bullied for her looks but manages to get a job at a popular magazine. She is courted by two men, one with a connection to her past. If you like makeover dramas or are a fan of Super Junior, you might enjoy She Was Pretty.

Hwarang Poster

KBS went after the harem fans with the historical fantasy drama Hwarang. Unfortunately, the lavish costumes and sets couldn’t help improve falling ratings as the drama aired. The eye candy quotient for fans of male harem dramas does not quite make up for the lack of plot, but if you’ve got a rainy day and nothing else to do, you might find enough action to get you through the lull.
