We all know the name “Park Bogum.” When his name comes up in conversation, you would think of him in one of his many roles: the Go player in Reply 1988, the Joseon Crown Prince in Love in the Moonlight, the free-spirited man in Encounter, or more.
But did you know that Bogum is more than just a diverse actor? In fact, he’s a man of many talents! Read on and know more about five ways he can make you fall harder for him:
In between his acting stints, Bogum has been developing his directing chops as well. In university, he directed a one-act play based on Anton Chekhov’s works. He was also the musical director of his graduating class’ production of the musical Hairspray.
In 2015, Bogum joined Music Bank as a co-host with Red Velvet’s Irene. Their chemistry, singing and hosting skills earned them praises as one of the best partnerships in the show’s history. Bogum’s hosting stint earned him the Best Newcomer Award at the KBS Entertainment Awards.
Bogum used to be part of his middle school’s swimming varsity team before he ventured into acting. That skill definitely helped when he was shooting a scene in Love in the Moonlight where he—as Prince Lee Yeong—had to rescue Hong Raon (played by Kim Yoojung) from drowning.
Playing the Piano
There’s nothing more swoon-worthy than watching a man playing a musical instrument. For Bogum, he started playing the piano when he was in kindergarten. He also served as a pianist and choir member at church when he was a kid.
Yes, Park Bogum is a singer, too! In 2016, he released the song “My Person” as part of the soundtrack to his drama Love in the Moonlight.
In 2018, he released a remake of the Jung Jaewon song “Let’s go see the stars” as a promotion for the French outdoor brand Eider. Just recently, he released his first Japanese single “Bloomin’.” Watch the MV here:
