Park Bogum talks about his first Manila fan meeting and upcoming role as a human clone

As Park Bogum stepped out from backstage, the fans who luckily won passes to the press conference erupted into cheers. The Korean actor replied to them with a cheerful wave, a heart sign, and even a flying kiss.

“I’ve been really looking forward to this. I’m so nervous, but I really wanted to come here,” he replied in English, to the crowd’s surprise.

This is his third time in the country; first, during the filming of his drama Wonderful Mama, and second, after the hit series Love in the Moonlight as a vacation.

On June 21, though, he was in Manila for May Your Every Day Be A Good Day Fan Meeting at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Bogum noted that the fact he is having an Asia tour is already an unforgettable experience. “I really appreciate the fans. Regardless of what language they speak, they are sparing their really precious time for me. So I prepared for the tour, hoping that they’ll have a good time.”

He said, “It’s my first fan meeting here in the Philippines… but I am just grateful for their support and love.”

Regarding his upcoming movie, Sae Bok, Bogum said, “It’s really interesting movie story… I’ll play a human clone who has the secret of eternal life.”

He will star in the movie alongside Gong Yoo and Jo Woo Jin, senior actors whom he admires, he said.

He added, “I’m just so happy to work with such amazing actors… It’s gonna be a good movie, so please watch it.”

Bo Gum said there is a lot of roles he is yet to try. Asking the fans the kind of roles they want to see him play, they told him to act as a high school student and as a doctor. “He looks young enough to play a high school student,” host Sam Oh observed.

He said his drama characters appealed to the global audience because of the beautiful landscape of Korea.

“All of the characters [I played] remain in my memory because all of those interesting dramas are so precious to me,” Bogum said.

He added, “Every character I played has something in common with me. Also, there were a lot of things I wanted to learn and emulate in those characters.”

In the end, he thanked his Filipino fans for their warm welcome and asked them to make good memories together.
