Park Seo Joon And Chun Woo Hee Offered Lead Roles In New Drama


 Park Seo Joon and Chun Woo Hee may be appearing in a new drama together.

 On February 10, agency Chun Woo Hee’s agency, Namoo Actors, stated, “Chun  Woo Hee is considering appearing in a new drama called ‘Ssam My Way’ (tentative  title).”

 If Chun Woo Hee accepts this offer, she will be playing her first lead role in a KBS  drama.

 When reports that said actor Park Seo Joon will also be appearing in the drama,  his agency, Keyeast ,corrected their situation, stating, “It is true that he has been  offered a role in ‘Ssam My Way,’ but nothing has been decided yet. This new drama  is just one of many works that he’s been offered to appear on.”

 It clarified, “He hasn’t even looked over it yet.”

 The role he has been offered is the main character Go Dong Man, who was once a  tough student during his school days but is now just an ordinary part-time office  employee.

 This new drama, airing in May, deals with two ordinary people who strive to  become the best in the current society where educational background matters  most.

Park Seo Joon And Kim Ji Won Confirmed As Leads For Upcoming KBS Drama

Park Seo Joon and Kim Ji Won will be starring in KBS’s upcoming drama titled “Fight My Way” (tentative title).

“Fight My Way” is a romance drama that shares the story of two young people who try to take the paths they want in life despite the harsh reality that keeps bringing them down.

Park Seo Joon will be playing Go Dong Man, a former taekwondo player who used to be famous but ends up becoming a nameless mixed martial arts fighter. Meanwhile, Kim Ji Won will play the role of Choi Ae Ra, a woman who works at a department store’s info desk but dreams of becoming a news anchor.

The two characters have known each other for a long time, and they are such good friends that they can even joke about each other’s past break-ups. The drama aims to capture viewers’ hearts with a realistic romance story, rather than a sugar-coated one.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Hi I'm new in this thread. Thanks to Hwarang I now found my new obsession - a guy with cute smile and hot bod named Park Seo Joon ^_^

I like him since She Was Pretty but Hwarang change my affection towards him into another level.

I just finished watching all his episodes in RM and 1N2D and I especially love his variety show appearances because he gives his all when playing the games and he looks very comfortable around the permanent members too.. have a feeling he is a nice guy in person :wub:

Now that Hwarang has finished I am currently catching up to his old drama, Witch's Romance and next will be Kill Me Heal Me. Feel a little regret why didn't I know this guy earlier. :wacko:

I can't wait for his new drama with Kim Ji Won. Wishing him more success in future. ^_^

Y'all, I really can not wait for Fight My Way/Ssam My Way to premier. With all the action-thriller-intense dramas coming out in May and June, it feels good to have a light hearted romance to fill the void. I first saw Park Seo-Joon in She was Pretty and I saw him a little bit in Hwarang (I didn't watch that entire drama, but I did check out the first two episodes, it looked really cute!). I'm excited to see what he does in Fight My Way.

Eastern Philosophy Professor Analyzes Celebrity Stage Names To See Which One Is The Best


It looks like Park Seo Joon made a good decision to use this stage name of his!

During the June 6 broadcast of a Beeteem TV variety program, a “Believe It or Don’t Believe It Tuesday’s Fortune” (literal translation) corner featured philosophy professor Jo Gyu Min, who utilized the “five elements”—wood, fire, earth, metal, water—of Eastern philosophy to analyze the stage names of various celebrities.

He named Park Seo Joon as having made the best choice, as his stage name would manifest as “earth-earth-metal” in the five elements, a harmonious combination. However, the actor’s real name Park Yong Gyu would be “earth-water-wood,” an incompatible relationship. Therefore, Park Seo Joon is a better name based on this analysis.


However in Sulli’s case, he explained that both her real name (Choi Jinri) and stage name appeared to be incompatible with her person. As for both Seo Kang Joon (real name Lee Seung Hwan) and Block B’s Zico (real name Woo Ji Ho), the professor deemed that their real names were much better in comparison to their stage names.

Here is the Park Seo-joon interview! We will try to do some more, so let us know if anyone has any stashed away!

박서준 Interview

너무나 솔직해서 훈훈한 [따뜻한 말 한마디]의 그 남자.
So honest, therefore, so warm, the man from One Warm Word

따뜻하다 박서준
Park Seo-joon, you are warm

따뜻한 말 한마디]의 수확은 이 남자. 결혼관도 라이벌도 너무 솔직해서 훈훈하다.
This man is what we got from One Warm Word. He is so warm because he is so honest about his outlook on marriage and rivals.

아침 촬영이라 짜증 났죠? 얼굴도 붓고.
전혀요. 시간이 그때만 비니까 할 수 없죠. 요즘엔 전시도 영화도 다 끊었어요. ‘
Are you annoyed because it is a morning shoot? Your face is swollen as well.
Not at all. I only have time in the morning, so I have no other choice. I recently stopped going to exhibits and movies as well. 

드라마 <따뜻한 말 한마디> 찍느라고요?
그렇죠. 예전에는 혼자 전시도 보며 잘 돌아다녔는데, 요즘엔 시간이 생겨도 안 나가요. 귀찮아서 집에만 있어요.
Because of the shooting schedule for One Warm World?
Yes. I use to walk around and do things like go to exhibits, but I don’t do that anymore even if I have time. I just stay at home now because I am so tired. 

취미도 없어요?
촬영이 있으면 거기에 매진해야 하니까 다른 부분을 포기하는 거죠. 컨디션 관리가 중요하니까요. 패션에 관심은 많아요.
컬렉션을 챙겨 본다기보단 옷을 사서 코디해 보는 게 재미있어요. 본인 수준에서 적당하게 쇼핑만 한다면 스트레스 푸는 수단으로 좋은 것 같아요.
Do you have a hobby?
When I am in a drama, I have to give up other things to fully focus on it. It is important to pace myself. I am interested in fashion. I am not necessary watching fashion shows, but it is fun to buy clothes and match them. Dependent on your financial situation, if you shop moderately then shopping is a good way to release stress. 

요즘 꽂혀 있는 스타일은 뭐예요?
믹스 매치를 추구해요. 슈트에 조던 운동화, 청바지에 구두를 신죠. 패션을 다루는 방송에서는 옷차림 레시피를 얘기하잖아요.
전 별로예요. 대중의 관심을 끌기 위한 구성이지만, 패션에 대한 고정관념만 생기죠. 패션은 정석이 아니라 시도예요.
What style do you like recently?
I like to mix and match styles: Air Jordans with suits or jeans with dress shoes. Fashion shows talk about the recipe for dressing up but I don’t like them that much. They are there to draw attention from the public, but it only creates a stereotype of fashion. Fashion is trial and error, not a standard procedure. 

인터뷰 후엔 <뮤직뱅크>에 MC 보러 가죠?
가수들의 축제에 괜히 낀 것 같고, 생방송 중 실수도 많아 어려워요. 그래도 적응하기 어렵다기보단 새로운 경험이라 생각해요.
내게 주어진 일이니까 성의를 다해야죠.
After this interview, are you are going to MC for [Music Bank]?
I don’t feel comfortable being at a singer’s party (music bank is all about singers), also it is difficult because the show is aired live and I make a lot of mistakes. However, I take it as a new experience rather than something difficult to adapt to. I do my best because it is my job. 

새로운 걸 즐기는 편인가요?
무엇이든 회피하지 않고 즐기려고 해요.
Do you enjoy new things?
I try to enjoy them, not dodge them.

두려운 건 뭔가요?
특별히 없어요. 대신 20대 후반이 되면서 고민이 생겼어요. 연기자나 가수나 매력을 파는 직업인데, 그 매력에도 끝이 있잖아요. 모두 소진되면 어떻게 해야 할까요. 소위 그릇에 비유하잖아요. 내 그릇은 얼마만 한지, 혹시 이미 찼는데 억지로 만들어내는 건 아닌지 고민이에요. 대중은 자극적인 걸 원하니까요. <뮤직뱅크>에서도 보면 아이돌들이 매번 더 센 콘셉트로 나와요.
What are you afraid of?
Nothing in particular. But I do have one concern as I move into my late 20’s. Entertainment is a job that sells your charm, but charm has its end. What should I do when I spend all my charm? People usually compare this to a bowl (in capacity), so I think about the size of my bowl a lot, is it already at it’s maximum, am I artificially making more space. 

연기자들도 변신에 대한 강박이 있잖아요. 
그 문제에 대해 생각을 많이 했어요. 갑작스러운 변신은 ‘오버’인 것 같아요. 무리가 오고 소화가 안 되죠. 제 경험치가 이만큼인데 80대 노인 역할을 할 순 없잖아요. 제가 할 수 있는 것들을 선택하면서 필모그래피를 채우고 싶어요. 지금 해야 할 것도 얼마나 많은데요.
Actors have an obsession on transformation, right?
I have thought about this a lot. I think sudden transformation is “unnatural” (he said “over”… in Korea, people say “over” a lot for exaggerated or excess. Perhaps “extra” might be a good term). Then I have to force myself and it becomes artificial. With my current experience, I cannot take the role of an 80-year-old grandpa. I want to fill my filmography with things I can do now. I have a lot of things to do as of now. 

박서준 Interview

계획도 잘 세우던데요. 연기학과에 진학하고, 2010년 5월에 미리 군대를 다녀오고, 그해에 소속사 찾고, 1년 동안 준비해서 데뷔하자고 계획했다죠. 
계획을 짜진 않았고 바란 거죠. 무언가를 하고 싶다, 할 것이다라고 생각하면 몸이 움직이고 있더라고요.
It seems like you make strategic moves. I heard you went to acting school, returned from Army service in May 2010, found an agency in that year, and prepared for a year and debuted.
I didn’t make a strategic plan, I just wanted it. When I want to do something, and I am determined to get it, my body is already making a move. 

[금 나와라 뚝딱!] 출연도 잘됐고, 바라는 대로 이뤄졌네요.
계획보다는 동기 덕분이에요. 그만큼 하고 싶었기에 움직인 거고, 그 결과가 온 거죠.
You were cast in Pots of Gold successfully, so you accomplished things as you wished.
It is not because of my planning, but my desire. Because I really wanted it, I made a move, therefore, I got the result. 

지금의 가장 큰 목표는 뭐예요?
굉장히 많지만, 저는 연기자이기 전에 사람이잖아요. 좋은 아빠, 좋은 남편이 되고 싶어요.
What is your biggest goal?
I have a lot, but I am a human being first, then an actor. I want to be a good father and a good husband.

아내가 직업 없이 가정을 돌봤으면 한다고요.
그건 변하지 않을 거예요. 제가 그런 환경에서 자랐기 때문에 제 아이도 엄마 손에 자랐으면 좋겠다고 생각해요. 어렸을 때 평생의 관념이 정립된다고 하더라고요. 사랑받지 못한 아이는 성인이 돼서 문제가 생기는 듯해요. 대인관계가 원만하지 못하거나, 극단적으로는 범죄자가 될 수 있죠. 저도 좋은 아빠가 되겠지만, 특히 아이 옆에는 엄마가 있어야 해요. 정답이 아닐 수 있지만 지금 제겐 이게 정답이에요.
You want your future wife to be a house maker.
I don’t think that will change. I grew up in that kind of family, so I want my kids to grow up under their own mother’s care. I heard that the ideas that are formed when kids are young, follows throughout their life. I think that kids who are not loved when they are little, have trouble when they become adults. Something like they won’t have a good relationship with others or in an extreme case, they could become a criminal. Of course, I will be a good dad, but especially, kids should have their mom next to them. Maybe this is not the right answer, but it is the right answer for me for right now.

보호해 주고 싶은 여성이 좋아요. 키가 크면 혼자 알아서 잘 살 것 같아요(웃음). 자꾸 신경 쓰이고 걱정되는 여성이 좋더라고요.
그런 분들 중엔 아무래도 마른 타입이 많아요.
What about their look?
I like someone who I can protect. If she is tall, I think she will be okay without any help (laugh). I like someone who constantly makes me care and worry. They are usually thin.

연애할 때 리드하는 스타일인가요?
연애할 때 다 받아주고, 무조건 잘못했다고 했어요. 그런데 반복이 되니 문제가 생기더라고요. 감정 표현을 하기 싫어서가 아니라 싸우기 싫어서 참는 건데 제가 바본 줄 안다니까요. 참다가 겨우 얘기를 꺼내면 변했다고 해버리니까 어쩌라는 건지.
앞으로는 불만은 바로 얘기하고 서로 맞춰가며 사귈 거예요.
Do you take the lead when you are in a relationship?
When I was in a relationship, I always accepted everything and said I was wrong. But when this situation is repeated, it creates problems. She thought I was an idiot. But I did it all because I didn’t want to argue with her, not because I didn’t want to express my emotions. When I reached my limit, and I talked about it with her, she told me I changed. What can I do? When I date someone in the future, I will tell my frustration to her and we can adjust to each other. 

유년 시절은 어땠나요?
오디션을 볼 때 자주 받는 질문이 있어요. “넌 언제 가장 행복했니? 언제 가장 슬펐니?” 막상 안 떠오르죠? 대부분 그럴 거예요. 연기자는 감정을 표현해야 하기에 이런 것들에 예민해야 해요.
조울증까진 아니어도 감각이 살아 있어야 하죠. 그래서 이런 질문들을 하는 거고. 덕분에 기억의 조각들을 하나씩 꺼내 봤어요.
누구나 자라면서 크고 작은 상처를 겪잖아요. 저 역시 남이 볼 땐 별거 아니어도 힘든 일이 있었죠. 불행은 주관적인 거니까요.
중학교 때였는데, 그때마다 라디오를 들었어요. 슬픈 연기를 할 때 이 기억들을 떠올리진 않지만, 제 감성의 바탕이 되어 있죠.
How was your childhood?
When I am at an audition, there is one question they ask frequently: “When were you the happiest? When was your saddest moment?” It is hard to remember those moments, right? I think it is the same for most people. Actors should be sensitive to those things because we have to express our feelings. Not like bipolar-ness, but our emotions should be alive. That is why they ask those questions. Because of that, I had to take out all the pieces of my memory. Everyone experiences some kind of pain. I have also had hard times, even though my hard times may not be a big deal for others. Misfortune is all subjective. I was a middle school student, whenever I was hurt, I listened to the radio. I don’t remember those moments when I act sad, but those are the basis of my emotions. 

나를 돌아보는 직업이네요.
멋진 만큼 구설수가 많은 직업이기도 하죠. 하나를 얻으면 하나를 잃는다고 생각해요.
It is an occupation that makes you look back.
It is a cool occupation, but we also experience a lot of gossip. You gain one, you lose one. 

어떤 배우가 되고 싶어요?
교수님께서 배우는 죽을 때까지 배우라고 배우래요. 우스갯소리 같지만 맞는 말이죠. 기라성 같은 선배님들도 연기를 모르겠다는데 저는 오죽하겠어요. 그래서 어렵게 생각하지 말고 즐기기로 했어요. 시간이 흐르면 제 연기 철학이 정립되고, 배우라는 타이틀에 어울리게 되겠죠. 더 시간이 지난 후엔 후배들에게 영감을 줬으면 좋겠어요. 제가 누군가를 롤 모델로 삼듯이.
What kind of actor do you want to be?
My professor told me that an actor is an actor (bae-oo, bae-oo-da), because you have to learn until you die. [in Korean, actor and learn has the same pronunciation, bae-oo, bae-oo-da,배우, 배우다, so that is a play on words). It sounds funny, but it is true. All the famous actors say they don’t know what acting is, so how can I know it. So I decided to enjoy it rather than thinking about it too much. With time, I will have my own idea of acting and will be better suited for the “actor” title. I want to be an inspiration to young actors when I get old just as I look up to older actors. 

롤 모델이 누군데요?
그때그때 달라요.
Who is your role model?
It depends on the circumstances. 

지금은 누군데요?
누군가를 따라 하기보단 나만의 경쟁력을 가져야 해요. 롤 모델보단 자극을 받는 또래들이 있죠. 지드래곤, 유아인 씨도 자기만의 색깔이 있잖아요. 그들처럼 저만의 색을 만들어가고 싶어요.
Who are they now?
Rather than copying others, I should develop my own identity. Instead of role models, I have peers that inspire me. You know how G-dragon and Yu Ah-in have their own color. I want to develop my own color and character.

박서준 Interview

또래 배우를 언급하다니 놀랍네요.
악성 댓글 보면 남 잘되는 거 못 보는 사람들도 있죠. 전 인정할 건 인정해요. 저보다 한 살 어린 김우빈 씨가 지금 각광을 받고 있잖아요. 제가 봐도 잘해요. 부럽기보단 나도 잘하는 것을 키워야겠다란 자극을 받죠.
It is surprising that you are mentioning your peers.
When you read bad comments, there are people that can’t stand someone who becomes successful. I acknowledge things that deserve acknowledgment. Kim Woo-bin, who is 1 year younger than me, is very popular now. He is very good in my point of view as well. It inspires me to develop my own strength, rather than being envious. 

서준 씨가 잘하는 게 뭔데요?
말하기 좀 그렇네요. 매력은 상대방이 느끼는 거지 내가 말할 수 없잖아요. 음…, 사람을 편안하게 해줘요.
What do you do well?
It is hard to say. Charm is not something I can say, it is something others feel about me. Um… I make people feel comfortable. 

만난 지 3시간밖에 안 됐지만 편안해요.
예전엔 낯가림도 심하고, 대화를 지속하기도 힘들었어요. 고민하다가 방법을 찾았죠. 제가 하나를 오픈하면 상대도 오픈하더라고요. 장난을 치다가도 진지할 땐 진지하게 다가가면 상대가 저를 편안하게 여기고요.
It has only been 3 hours, but I feel comfortable.
I was shy before, and it was hard to keep up conversations. After thinking about it for a long time, I found a way. When I open up, others open up as well. People feel comfortable when I am playful, but when needed, I become serious. 

만나봐야 아는 매력이네요.
브라운관을 통해서는 알 수 없죠. 이런 좋은 면들이 드러나도록 노력해야겠지만, 그렇다고 가식은 싫어요. 보여지는 직업이라 오히려 꾸밀수록 한계가 빨리 드러날 거예요. 그렇게 갑자기 무너지면 혼란이 클 거고요. 처음부터 솔직하게 드러내고, 저만의 좋은 점을 만들어가는 게 중요하죠.
It is a kind of charm that can only be recognized when seeing you in person.
It is hard to be recognized on TV. I will try to reveal this good side of myself, but I don’t want to fake it. My job is showing myself, therefore, if I fake it, it will reveal itself quickly. Also, it will be chaotic once it is revealed. I think it is better to be authentic and build up my own strength. 

오늘 만난 서준 씨의 모습을 대중도 알았으면 좋겠어요.
스타는 배우가 될 수 없지만, 배우는 스타가 될 수 있다고 생각해요. 저는 우선 배우가 되고 싶어요. 돈이나 인기 때문이 아니라 정말 좋아서 시작한 일이라 천천히 갈 거예요. 어떤 강박관념 없이 즐기면서. 이른바 스타가 된 뒤에도 저의 마음가짐과 행동들이 사람들에게 긍정적인 영향을 끼치도록 노력할 거예요.
I want the public to recognize you as we recognized you today.
Stars aren’t always actors, but actors can be stars. I want to be an actor first. I will take it easy because I started it because I like it so much, not because of money or fame. I enjoy it without obsessing. When I become a so-called star, I will work hard to be a positive influence to others. 

모델 출신인 줄 알았다. 185cm의 키, 스타일리스트가 바짓단을 접지 않을 만큼의 다리 길이. 스태프들은 그의 몸매를 ‘대박 사건’이라 불렀다. 그는 연기학과에 진학했지만 데뷔보다 먼저 군대 생활을 겪었다. 홀가분하게, 하지만 조금 늦게 25살에 데뷔했다. 이제 3년 차. 주말 드라마 <금 나와라 뚝딱!>에서 안정적인 연기와 훈훈한 상의 탈의로 라이징 스타가 됐고, 현재는 <따뜻한 말 한마디>에서 낮에는 은행의 청경 반장으로, 밤에는 요리사로 일하는 바른 청년 역할이다. 제복과 앞치마를 하이패션으로 승화시키는 실루엣은 여전하다. 인터뷰를 위해 마주 앉을 때는 다리까지 덮는 긴 패딩에 페도라를 매치했다. 그는 패션을 사랑한다.
그의 말을 빌리자면 ‘눈만 높아져서 지출이 많아지는 게 문제’일 정도로. 그는 말투도 답변도 거침없다. 유년 시절, 결혼관, 또래 배우에 대한 감정을 거르지 않는다. 자신이 솔직하면 상대도 솔직하고 가까워질 수 있다고 믿는다.
오랜만에 꾸미지 않은 담백한 인터뷰. 그와 친구가 되고 싶었다. 

I thought he used to be a model. 185 cm tall, long legs where stylist don’t even need to fold his pants. Staff members called his body a “Big hit.” He went to an acting school, but he went to the Army first. He debuted at 25 without any strings. Now it is his 3rd year. With the weekend drama Pots of Gold he became a rising star with his top undressing scene, and now in One Warm Word he is a decent young man who is a bank security guard by day, and a chef at night. He even makes a uniform and apron highly fashionable. He matched a long padded jacket and fedora for the interview. He loves fashion. In his terms, “It is a problem that he spends a lot of money on clothes because his standard became higher, but not his income.” The way he talks and his responses are trouble-free. He didn’t filter when he talked about his youth, his outlook on marriage, or his ideas of his peers. He believes when he is honest with others, they will also be honest with him. It was a clean and plain interview without any acting out. I wanted to be his friend.

Hi Everyone! Here is another Park Seo-joon Interview:


I removed the photos so the page doesn't take forever to load.

Elle Magazine Korea | September 29, 2016 | Translated By Bah+Doo

갖고 싶은 남자, 박서준
The man everyone wants, Park Seo-joon

박서준은 자신의 것이 아닌 길을 걸은 적 없다. 오로지 자신의 선택과 리듬에 맞춰 보폭을 넓혀왔다. 드라마 <화랑: 더 비기닝> 촬영을 끝낸 그가 LA 길 위에 섰다. 거리낌 없는 이곳에서 지금까지 만나본 적 없는 박서준의 한 페이지가 완성됐다.
Park Seo-joon always did things in his own way. He expanded his stride using his own choice and rhythm. He is standing on a street in LA after the drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth. A chapter of his life that no one has ever seen before was completed here.

드라마 <화랑: 더 비기닝> 촬영이 끝나자마자 LA에 왔어요. 지금 마음 상태는 작품이 끝난 후에는 빨리 털어내려는 편이에요. <화랑: 더 비기닝>이 사전제작 드라마이기에 포스터 촬영도 해야 하고 후반작업도 남아 있지만 일단 촬영이 끝나 후련해요. 한적한 분위기에서 복잡한 생각 없이 지낼 수 있어 좋기도 하고요. 여기에 온 뒤로 휴대폰을 거의 보지 않다시피 하고 있어요.
You came to LA right after the drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth shooting ended. How do you feel? After a drama ends, I try to forget about it as quickly as possible. Because Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth is a pre-produced drama, I feel relieved since the filming of the drama ended, even though I still need to shoot posters and do post production work. I am really enjoying all the quiet moments without having to think too much. I have hardly looked at my cell phone since I came here. 

노랗게 염색한 머리 이야기를 안 할 수 없어요 이번 화보를 위해 해봤어요. 궁금했거든요. 예전부터 이 스타일로 화보를 찍어보고 싶었는데 실제로 하면 어떨지. 저도 제 모습을 알아가는 중이에요. 머리 때문에 말이 많다는 건 알아요. 사람들이 저를 떠올렸을 때 어떤 이미지가 연상되는지 모르겠지만 이를 의식하며 뭔가를 한 적은 없어요. 하지만 저를 작품과 캐릭터로 기억하는 사람들은 파격적이라고 느끼거나 왜 했냐고 할 수 있겠죠. 이런 반응을 걱정하는 것보다 제가 보고 싶은 모습을 남기는 게 더 중요하다고 생각해요.
I can’t just not mention your blond hair. I did it for this photo shoot. I was just curious. I always wanted to have a photo shoot with this hair style, but would I really do it. I am figuring myself out as well. I know people talk a lot about my hair. I don’t exactly know what kind of image they have of me, but I never decide to do anything because of other people’s opinion of me. However, for someone who remembers me from TV or the characters I have played before, they think it is shocking or may ask me why I did it. For me, it is more important to leave the image I want to see rather than caring about other people’s reaction. 

화보를 촬영하면서 컷마다 꼼꼼히 확인한 이유를 알겠어요 원래 화보든 드라마든 초반에만 모니터링을 해요. 결과물이 어떨지 대략 보이거든요. 그런데 이번에는 저도 모르는 모습이라 정말 궁금했어요. 화보에 대한 반응과 상관없이 저로서는 재미있는 작업이었어요. 내년이면 서른이 되기도 하고, 앞으로 이런 시도를 하기 어려울 것 같아요.
Now I understand why you were so particular about each cut while shooting the pictorial. Actually, for either pictorials or dramas, I only monitor the beginning of the work. I can kind of guess what the outcome will be. But this time, I was really curious because I also couldn’t predict what the outcome would be. It was a fun project for me regardless of the public’s reaction to the pictorial. I will be thirty next year, so I think it will be difficult to try something like this in the future. 

일과 개인의 삶을 철저히 분리하려는 태도가 느껴지는데요 사람들은 할리우드 파파라치 사진을 보면서 ‘출연료 입금 전후’란 우스갯소리를 하잖아요. 그런데 어떻게 365일 내내 완벽한 상태를 유지해요? 작품을 하는 동안 배우는 엄청난 긴장 속에 살기 때문에 그 외의 시간에는 자신을 놓아줘야 해요. 새 작품을 할 땐 캐릭터에 맞게 잘 준비하면 되고요. 하지만 사람들은 스스로 그린 이미지에서 벗어난 모습을 보고 싶지 않아 해요. 인정하고 싶지 않지만 저도 이미지로 먹고사는 사람이에요. 대중이 봤을 땐 그렇단 말이죠. 그러다 보니 자제하고 조심해야 하는 부분들이 생길 수밖에 없고, 함께 일하는 이들에게 피해를 주지 않기 위해 적정선을 지키게 돼요. 제 성격을 아는 사람들은 “마음 편하게 해”라고 말하지만 그러기가 쉽지 않아요. 하나를 얻으면 하나를 잃을 수도 있어요.
I feel that you are trying to completely separate work and private life. People are joking about the difference before and after getting paid (before getting paid: plain, after getting paid: sexy) when they see pictures of Hollywood stars by the paparazzi. How can I maintain perfect conditioning 365 days of the year? When actors are working, we are in a high-tension environment, so we should let things go between projects. When we start a new project, we just need to be prepared for the new character. However, people don’t want to see an image that deviates from the image they created in their mind. I don’t want to accept it, but I make a living with my image. At least, the view of the general public is like that. Therefore, there are some things that I have to control myself and be careful of, also I draw a line in order to not hurt the people I work with. The people who know my personality tell me, “Try to be relaxed” but it is not easy for me. When you gain one, you might lose one (there are trade-offs).

그런 어른스러운 면은 이 일을 하면서 더해졌나요 원래 성격이 그래요. 혼자 상처받는 건 괜찮은데 저 때문에 다른 누군가가 힘들어 하는 건 못 견뎌요. 그래서 독단적으로 행동하지 않고 주위 의견을 들으려는 편이에요.
Did you become more mature like this after working in this industry? I was always like this. It is okay to get hurt, but I can’t stand someone suffering because of me. That is why I don’t do things dogmatically, rather, I try to listen to others. 

대중이 바라보는 본인에 대한 이미지는 뭐라고 생각하나요 아마도 지금까지 로맨스와 멜로물을 주로 했으니 그런 데서 연유한 모습이겠죠. 제가 소년미가 두드러지는 타입은 아니라고 생각해요. 보호해 주고 싶은 느낌이 들진 않잖아요. 그보다 성숙한 남자의 매력이 아닐까 해요.
What do you think the general public’s view of your image is? I guess the image is based on my roles in romantic dramas or melodramas. I don’t think I have much of a handsome boy image. I am not the kind of person that needs to be protected, right? Rather, I think I have a mature man’s charm. 

박서준이라는 사람이 어필할 수 있는 또 다른 매력은 호불호가 갈릴 수도 있지만 가식적으로 행동하지 않으려 해요. 겉으로만 친하게 지내고, 마음에 없는 이야기를 하고 싶지 않아요. 그래야 할 이유도 없고요. 그래서 직접 만나거나 겪어보기 전까지 그 사람에 대한 선입견을 갖지 않아요. 가끔 실수를 하기도 하지만 이런 솔직한 태도가 매력이 될 수 있다고 봐요.
What is your other charm that can appeal to people as, human-being Park Seo-joon? Maybe some people like or dislike this, but I try not to be fake. I don’t want to be friendly only on the surface, I don’t want to talk about something I don’t mean. I have no reason to do that as well. So, I try not to have preconceptions of someone until I meet them in person or experience them. Sometimes I make mistakes, but I think my honest attitude can be charming. 

사람에 대한 촉은 좋은가요 많은 사람들이 그렇겠지만 몇 마디만 나눠도 나와 맞는 사람이구나 할 때가 있어요. 반면 온종일 시간을 보내도 불편한 사람이 있기도 하고요. 그런 경우에는 기본적인 예의만 갖춰요. 그 이상은 유난인 것 같아요. 지인들에게 자주 하는 말은 “괜찮아?” “밥 먹었어?” 별 말 아닌 것 같지만 이 또한 애정 어린 표현이에요. 누가 관심도 없는데 괜찮은지 안부를 묻겠어요. 친한 사이에는 장황하게 말을 늘어놓지 않아도 다 통해요.
Do you have a good sense toward people? I guess it is the same for a lot of people, I have those moments that immediately feel like I can get along with them well just with a short conversation. On the other hand, some people make me unconformable even if I spend all day with them. In that case, I just maintain my basic attitude. If I do more than that then I think it is an exaggeration. I often say to my friends “How are you doing? Is everything fine?” or “Did you eat yet?”. It doesn’t sound like much, but it is my expression of kinship. Who would ask how someone’s doing if they don’t care about knowing? When you are close to each other then you don’t have to say much.

그렇다면 20대를 마무리하고 있는 박서준의 2016년은 안녕한가요 올 한 해는 <화랑: 더 비기닝>이 전부였다고 이야기할 수 있어요. 연초부터 시작해서 최근까지 촬영하느라 정말 바빴어요. 하지만 사전제작 드라마라 방송 노출이 적었어요. 어떤 사람들은 제가 아무것도 안 하는 줄 알더라고요. “박서준 확 죽었네”라는 이야기도 들었어요. 죽긴 왜 죽어요. 열심히 드라마를 찍었는데. 연말에 방송될 예정이라 이 작품으로 1년을 꽉 채우게 될 것 같아요.
Then how is your 2016, the last year of your 20’s? I can say [Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth] was everything this year. I was really busy with it since the beginning of the year. But it was all pre-produced, so I didn’t have much drama exposure. Some people thought I didn’t do anything this year. I even heard “Park Seo-joon is almost dead” (ie. his career is going downhill). Who is dead? I was working hard shooting this drama [Hwarang]. I think I will spend all of 2016 with this drama since it is scheduled to air at the end of the year. 

한 번 사는 인생, 자유롭게 살고 싶은 화랑을 연기했다면서요. 이 정도만 들어도 전작들과 분명 다른 느낌이 들어요 첫 사극 작품이란 의미가 커요. 굳게 마음먹고 시작한 도전이었죠. 사극 분장이 어색하지 않을까 걱정했고, 촬영하면서는 현대물에서 접하지 못한 감정들을 많이 느꼈어요. 나름대로 잘 표현하려고 노력했는데 과연 제가 느낀 대로 고스란히 전달될지 궁금해요.
I heard you acted in Hwarang with the concept of “You live once, live freely.” Just hearing that, it feels really different from your previous projects. It is meaningful for me because it is my first historical drama. I firmly made up my mind and to the challenge. I was worried, what if I look weird in a historical drama, and while filming I felt a lot of different emotions that I never felt in modern dramas. I tried hard to express them in my own way, but I am wondering if my feelings were expressed well. 

화랑의 이야기라면 액션 신도 많았을 텐데 몸을 쓰는 연기는 어땠나요 데뷔 전, 그러니까 작품을 하고 싶다는 열망으로 펄펄 들끓었을 때 나중에 도움이 될 것 같아 승마도 하고 검도, 합기도, 복싱을 배웠어요. 놀랍게도 몸이 그것들을 기억하더라고요.
The Hwarang story should involve a lot of action scenes, how was it? Before my debut, when I was super enthusiastic about work, I learned horseback riding, Kendo, Hapkido, and boxing. Surprisingly, my body remembered the moves. 

경험이 많아야 연기도 잘한다는 말에 동의하나요 어느 정도는요. 20대 초반, 군대를 다녀와서 세상을 너무 모르고 산 게 아닌가 하는 생각이 들었어요. 아버지가 엄해서 온실 속 화초처럼 평범하게 자랐거든요. 하지만 세상에 나를 던지고 부딪히면서 깨달은 게 있어요. 느끼고 경험하는 건 시간과 비례하지 않다는 거죠. 1시간을 놀아도 한 달만큼 느낄 수 있는 게 중요해요. 감각이 발달돼 있으면 작은 것도 크게 받아들일 수 있어요. 배우란 직업이 특히 그래요. 감각의 날을 세우고 있어야 받아들이는 폭이 크고, 표현하는 것들이 공감을 살 수 있어요. 저도 평소 예민함을 유지하려고 해요. 가끔 남들은 대수롭지 않게 여기는 일을 힘들어할 때도 있지만요.
Do you agree that you can act better with more experiences? To a certain extent, yes. In my early 20’s, after my military service, I realized that I didn’t know the world much. I grow up normally and strictly because my father was very strict. But I realized one thing when I was experiencing the world. Feeling and experiencing don’t always have a linear relationship with time. It is important to feel like you spent the entire month even though you only played for an hour. When your senses are well developed, you can perceive a tiny thing as if it is big. This is especially true for actors. When your senses are sharp, you can perceive more and what you are expressing can be accepted from the audiences. I try to stay sharp. Even though sometimes I suffer from something that is not important for others. 

순조롭게 커리어를 이어나가고 있어요. 20대 초반에 막연히 그려본 모습과 얼마나 닮아 있나요 누군가는 더 잘됐어야 한다고 하거나, 또 다른 누군가는 너치고는 엄청 잘됐다고 할지도 몰라요. 어느 쪽이 됐든 나중에 돌아봤을 때 후회하지 말자는 마음으로 최선을 다했고, 결국 여기까지 오게 됐어요. 결과는 제가 어떻게 할 수 있는 부분이 아니라고 봐요. 결과가 좋으면 좋은 거고, 아무리 노력했어도 원하는 게 나타나지 않기도 해요. 그렇지만 최선을 다하면 담담히 받아들이게 돼요.
Your career is progressing smoothly. How similar are you now to the future image you vaguely imagined for yourself in your early 20’s? I guess some people think that my career should be further along than it is now, or some people may say that I am a lot more successful than I deserve. Whatever the case, I try my best not to regret anything for the future, now I finally ended up here. I don’t think I can control the result. If the result is good, it is good. Sometimes you don’t get what you want to even though you put a lot of effort into it. If I did my best then I just accept the result. 

반대로 전혀 예상하지 못했던 의외의 고민은 드라마든 영화든 작품을 할 수 있길 바랐지, 지금처럼 어떤 작품으로 어떤 연기를 해야 하는지 고민할 줄은 전혀 몰랐어요. 또 제게 팬이란 존재가 생기리라곤 상상도 못했어요. 연기는 오랫동안 해 왔기 때문에 작품을 할 때마다 어떻게 해야 할지 계산이 서지만 팬들은 어떻게 대해야 할지 고민이 많아요. 누가 정답을 알려줬으면 좋겠어요.
Did you have any unexpected worries that are opposite of your expectations? Back then, I only wished to do anything, drama or movies, I never expected to worry about what kind of work I was in or what kind of parts I will perform. Acting styles are rather easy to choose because I have been acting for a while, but it is difficult for me to know how to treat my fans. I wish someone would tell me the correct answer. 

29세의 남자 박서준은 자신의 삶에서 어떤 역할을 찾고 있나요 여러 가지가 있겠죠. 가족을 이야기하면 좀 더 살가운 아들이 되고 싶어요. 밖에서는 안 그런데 집에만 들어오면 무뚝뚝해요. 아무래도 누구보다 가까운 가족은 나를 잘 이해해 주겠지 하는 마음이 들잖아요. 나름 살갑게 대하려 노력하는데 잘 안 돼요. 친구들에게는 예전만큼 자주 보지 못하더라도 언제나 편하고 거리낌 없는 친구로 남고 싶고, 사회적으로는 사람들에게 받은 사랑을 돌려주고 싶기도 해요. 어려운 상황에 처한 사람들, 특히 아동들을 돕고 싶다는 막연한 생각을 갖고 있어요. 그러고 보니 제 인생 자체가 이런 막연함으로 굴러가는 것 같아요.
What kind of role is 29-year-old man Park Seo-joon searching for in his life? There are many. As a member of a family, I want to be a more affectionate son. I am not like that outside, but at home, I am pretty brusque (or blunt). I think my family will understand me well because we are the closest. I try to be more affectionate to them but it is not easy. For my friends, I want to remain comfortable and close, even though we don’t see each other as often as we did before, and as a member of society, I want to return all the love the fans give me. I have vague ideas of helping people of need, especially little kids. Come to think of it, my life goes on with these uncertainties. 

삶의 행보가 멋져 보이는 사람은 글쎄요. 연기적인 고민을 하느라 인생의 롤모델에 대해 깊게 고민한 적 없었어요. 이건 나중에 생각해 봐야 할 문제인 것 같아요. 만약 그럴 만한 가치가 있는 사람을 찾는다 해도 제가 그런 인생을 살 수 있는 건 아닐 거예요. 그러니 저만의 것을 만들어 나가는 게 더 중요하다고 봐요.
Who is your role model? Well, I haven’t spent too much time thinking about role models because I am busy thinking about acting. I will think about it later. Even if I find someone to look up to, I don’t think I can live the same life. Therefore, I think it is more important to live my own way. 

남은 20대의 시간 동안 해보고 싶은 건 그 시간도 결국 작품 하느라 고생하지 않을까 해요. 곧 새 영화 촬영에 들어가는데 매번 그랬듯 잘해 내고 싶어요. 그리고 연말에는 <화랑: 더 비기닝>을 보고 있겠죠. ‘그때 왜 저렇게 했지?’ 하고 자책하면서.
What do you want to do for the rest of your 20’s? I think I will spend my time working hard. I am going to be in a new movie soon and I want to do it well. And I will watch Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth at the end of year while blaming myself, “Why did I do that before?”

Hi Everyone!!  Here is another Park Seo-joon interview below! The rest is in the spoiler!

거침없이 말하고, 거침없이 움직이는 박서준.
Park Seo-joon speaks without hesitation; acts without hesitation.

박서준과의 만남을 앞두고 1년 전 인터뷰를 다시 꺼내 읽었다. “이번에 잘해야 다음번에 [엘르]와 또 인터뷰하죠!” “명색이 배우인데 이 정도는 해야죠!” 플레이어로 친다면 공격수. 과감한 플레이로 날카로운 첫인상을 남긴 선수였다. ‘직구’가 연상되는 솔직한 대답이 박서준 하면 떠오르는 이미지다. 드라마 [마녀의 연애]가 끝난, 홀가분한 상태의 그는 또 어떤 얘기를 들려줄지 에디터로서, 사심 가득한 여자로서 기대됐다. 그리고 스트라이프 티셔츠 차림의 가벼운 복장으로 촬영 장소인 부티크 호텔 펜트하우스로 들어와서 박서준이 맨 처음 꺼낸 말. “오, 수영장에서 수영해도 돼요?” 안 될 게 뭐 있나. ‘완전’ 되지! ‘리베로’처럼 자유로운 영혼의 소유자, 이번엔 거침없이 물속을 누비고 다녔다.
I read the interview we did one year ago before my meeting with Park Seo-joon. “I should do well so I can have another interview with Elle again!” “I am an actor, so I should do at least this much!” When compared to an athlete, he is a striker. He was a player that left a sharp first impression with a bold play. A person who gives honest answers like a ‘fast ball’ is the image I have when I think of Park Seo-joon. I was looking forward to this interview with him as an Editor and a woman with a selfish motive, with the anticipation of the kinds of stories the free and easy Park Seo-joon will tell us, since first finishing the drama Witch’s Romance. When he showed up with a striped t-shirt at the shooting location at a boutique hotel penthouse, the first words he said were, “Oh, can I swim in the swimming pool?”. Why not? “Of course, you can!” Just like a Libero, a free spirit, he swam in the water without hesitation. 



[엘르]와는 딱 1년 만의 만남이다. 그때 찍었던 화보 B컷을 집에 붙여놨다.
It has only been a year since you last met with Elle. I put the B cut pictorials on my wall at home.
그사이 포인트가 될 만한 두 작품 [따뜻한 말 한마디], [마녀의 연애]에 출연했다. 그러네. 정말 1년 만이라 나 역시 감회가 새롭다. 그동안 쉬는 날 없이 계속 촬영만 했다.
You were in One Warm Word and Witch’s Romance which could be considered your turning point. That is true. It has been a year, I also become a little sentimental as well. I was working continuously without any break. 

매니저에게 들으니 오늘이 [마녀의 연애] 촬영 끝난 지 3일째라면서 맞다. 작품 하면서 집에 있는 시간이 거의 없었으니까 잠을 좀 잤다. 차 안이나 대기실이 집처럼 느껴질 정도다.
I heard from your manager that today is the third day after finishing the drama Witch’s Romance. Right. I slept a lot at home since I didn’t get a chance to spend that much time at home while working. I even felt like the car or the waiting room was my home.
이제 사람들이 다 알아보지 않나 그렇지도 않다. 시청률이 잘 나온 건 아니니까. 거의 촬영장에서 지내다 보니 확인할 기회도 없었다.
Are people recognizing you on the street now? Not at all. The ratings weren’t that great. I spent most of my time at the shooting location, so I didn’t have a chance to check it out as well.
박서준이야말로 [마녀의 연애]의 최고 수혜자가 아닌가 그런가. 첫 주연을 맡은 작품이니까. 나 자신을 시험해 본 기회였던 것 같다. 그리고 뭐 결과도 나쁘지 않게 끝난 것 같다.
You are the best beneficiary of the Witch’s Romance though, right? Is that true? It is because it was my first main role. It was a good test to myself and the result wasn’t that bad.
전작에서 연기한 배역들은 저마다 복잡한 가정사로 인한 아픔이(?) 있었다. 이번 작품에선 박서준의 밝은 성격을 보여줄 수 있었네. 밝은 모습이나 어두운 모습, 둘 다 내 안에 있어서 그저 상황에 맞게 연기한 것 같다.
Your previous roles had some kinds of hardships due to complicated family histories. In this drama, you were able to show Park Seo-joon’s bright side. I have both a dark and bright side, so I just acted accordingly.
회를 거듭할수록 엄정화와의 커플 연기가 물이 올랐다. 사실 애드리브가 많았다. 처음 드라마 시작할 땐 ‘윤동하’란 인물의 분위기를 어떻게 연출할지에 대해 생각 많이 했다. 그걸 기초로 극이 진행될수록 캐릭터가 구체화되면 차츰 뭘 해도 상관없는 단계가 되거든. 마지막엔 동하가 익숙해져서 진짜 편하게 놀면서 했다.
Episode after episode, your couple acting with Um Jung-hwa became more fluid. Actually, we had a lot of ad-libs. When we first started the drama, I thought about the character of Yoon Dong-hwa a lot to figure out how to express his moods. While the drama progressed, the character came to life based on that, eventually, it didn’t matter what I did. At the end of the drama, Dong-ha became so familiar to me, so I didn’t need to try at all. 

Park Seo Joon Elle 2014 플라워 프린트 셔츠는 Blindness. 팬츠는 스타일리스트 소장품.
The flower print shirt is from Blindness. The pants are from the stylist’s collection.

애드리브도 상대가 받아줘야 가능한 법인데. 일단 감독님이 나와 정화 누나가 편하게 연기할 수 있게 내버려두는 스타일이다. 우리 드라마가 쉽게 말해 ‘좀 막 해도 되는’, 애드리브가 잘 사는 로맨틱 코미디여서 대사를 마구 던질 수 있는 여건이었다. 어쨌든 정극은 아니니까 이것저것 생각나는 대로 대사를 치고 그게 웃기면 방송에 나갔다.
Ad-libbing is only possible when the other person responds to it. First of all, the director let me and Jung-hwa noona act freely. Our drama was a so called ‘Do whatever’ romantic comedy where ad-libbing works well. Therefore, we were able to say whatever we wanted to say. Anyways, it is not a traditional drama, so I changed the dialog whatever way I wanted to change it and if that got a laugh then it was broadcast.
‘로맨틱 코미디’계의 새로운 왕자로 떠오르는 중인데. 나만의 표현을 좋게 봐주시니 기분 좋지. 지금 내 나이에 맞게 표현할 수 있는 부분을 보여드렸을 뿐인데.
You are becoming a new rising prince of the romantic-comedy genre. I am glad you are favorable to my expressions. I just showed the sides of myself that I can only express at that age.
‘반지연(엄정화)’ 같은 기자 여자친구 어떤가. 연예부만 아니면 괜찮지 않을까(웃음). 간접적이긴 했지만 난 되게 신선했다. 극중 정화 누나가 기자였지만 기자로서 연출된 상황을 심도 있게 겪을 수 있었던 건 아니라서 좀 더 사랑하는 사람을 바라보는 눈으로 봤던 것 같다.
How would you like a reporter girlfriend like Ban Ji-yeon (Um Jung-hwa). I guess it is okay If she doesn’t work for the entertainment department (laugh). It was really refreshing even though it was an indirect experience. Even though Jung-hwa noona was a reporter in the drama, it wasn’t like I could experience the deeper sides of her reporter life, so l looked at her more like a lover.
기 센 여자에게 ‘대시’하는 일 자체가 쉽지 않을 것 같은데. 겉으로만 보면 그렇지만 내가 정말로 그 사람이 궁금하다면 대화를 나눠 보면 되는 문제다. 강한 척하는 사람일수록 오히려 여린 구석이 많다. 어쨌든 사람은 누구나 비슷한 것 같다. 여자들이 남자는 다 똑같다고 말하듯이 내가 볼 때 여자도 다 똑같은 것 같다! 그렇지만 왈가닥 타입은 별로 좋아하지 않는다. 나는 항상 여자는 여자다워야 하고, 남자는 남자다워야 한다고 생각한다. 그게 매력적인 것 같다.
It seems like it would be difficult to chase after a bossy woman. It Looks like it, but If I am really interested in that person, I just need to talk to her first. Whoever pretends like they are a strong person, can also be soft on the inside. Anyway, people are similar. Just like women say all the men are the same, I think all the women are the same to me! However, I don’t like unruly girls. I always think women should behave like women and men should behave like men. I think that is more charming.
무려 14살이란 나이 차이에 대해선? 띠동갑을 훌쩍 뛰어넘는 나이인데 몰입이 어렵진 않았나 나는 원래 여자를 만날 때 나이 차이보다 정신 연령, 코드가 맞아야 한다고 생각한다. 대화가 통하는 게 더 중요하지 않나. 그동안 연상의 여자를 만나본 적이 없어서 걱정하긴 했다. 근데 정화 누나가 워낙 소녀 같다. 선배 또는 누나와 연기한다는 생각이 전혀 들지 않을 정도로 편하게 연기했다. 어차피 로맨스 연기를 해야 하는데, 괜히 나이를 의식해 연기가 어려워지면 마이너스다. 진짜 여자와 남자로 생각하는 게 좋지, 나이 차이는 시청자가 느끼는 표면적인 설정일 뿐이라고 생각했다.
How about the 14 year age difference? Did you have any difficulties while acting because the age gap was more than a decade? When I meet women, I always think the mental age and codes (match) are more important than the age difference. Being able to communicate is more important, right? I was kind of worried because I never dated an older woman. But Jung-hwa noona was so much like a young girl. I acted so comfortably that I didn’t even think I was acting with a seonbae or a noona. I have to act romantic with her anyhow, so thinking about age and making acting even more difficult because of it is of no use. It is better to think that it is between a real man and a real woman. I think the age difference is just a set up for the audience.
드라마에 주연으로 출연한 건 처음인데 [마녀의 연애]가 박서준에겐 새로운 도전이었겠다 많은 신을 소화해야 한다는 점에서 그렇지. 그만큼 내가 보여줄 수 있는 게 많으니까 힘든 동시에 재미도 있었다.
Witch’s Romance is your first main role in a drama, so it should have been a new challenge for Park Seo-joon. It is true in terms of spending more time in front of the camera. At the same time, I can show more things about myself, so it was hard, but fun as well.
아, 정말로 볼수록 연애하고 싶은 욕구가 커지는 드라마더라. 다정한 눈빛 발사에 필요할 때 알아서 척척 해주는 스킨십! 남자들이 좀 보고 배워야 한다. 나는 어색한 게 싫다. 로맨스를 표현하려면 오글거리는 장면을 연기할 때가 많다. 그걸 최대한 어색하지 않게 표현하기 위해선 키스할 것 같을 땐 그냥 넘어가고 거꾸로 전혀 엉뚱한 타이밍에 스킨십을 하는 거다. 상대방이 봤을 때 어떻게 행동하면 어색함이 묻어나지 않는 자연스러운 모습일까가 관건이었던 것 같다.
Ah, the more I watched the drama, the more I wanted to date. It had lovely gazes and skinship when needed! Men should learn from it. I don’t like awkward moments. To express romance in the drama, I have to do a lot of cheesy scenes. To make these scenes normal, I don’t kiss when I have to and I touch when it is not the right time. The key thing was finding the type of acting that looked natural without being awkward.
엄정화와는 완전 친해졌겠다? 그럼! 많은 신을 함께 소화했으니.
I guess you become good friends with Um Jung-hwa? Of course, since we had a lot of scenes together.
여자가 봐도 매력 있는, 친해지고 싶은 ‘언니’ 타입이다. 가까이에서 본 그녀는 어땠나? 배울 점이 참 많았다. 아무래도 누나가 현장 경험이 풍부해서 한 신을 찍을 때도 준비를 참 많이 해오시더라.
She is a cool ‘eunni’ type and is attractive to woman as well. How was she? I had a lot to learn from her. I think she has a lot of experience, she even prepared a lot for only one cut. 

둘의 호흡이 척척 잘 맞더라. 일상생활에서 나누는 대화처럼 대사도 툭툭 던지고. 나는 연기자인데도 불구하고 아이러니하게 ‘연기한다’는 느낌이 참 별로인 것 같다. 내가 가장 편해야 한다고 생각한다. 그런 생각이 누나와도 잘 맞았던 것 같다.
It seems like you two got along well with each other. The conversations in the drama looked just like you were saying them in day-to-day life. Even though I am an actor, ironically, I don’t like the feel of “acting.” I think I should be the very comfortable and relaxed. My idea matched well with noona’s.
애정 신을 촬영하는 건 어색하지 않았나? 물론 처음엔 어색했지. 근데 나중엔 어색하게 느끼는 것도 웃기고 편해졌다.
Did you feel awkward to take on love scenes? Of course, it was awkward in the beginning. But the feeling of awkwardness became funny and natural for me.

오늘을 위해서 그간 한 꽤 많은 분량의 인터뷰를 읽어봤다. 보통 질문을 하면 최대한 그 질문에 맞춰 대답하려고 하는데 마음에 들지 않으면 사정없이 내치는 듯한 인상이 들더라. 새로운 질문을 던져야 새로운 생각으로 새롭게 대답할 수 있다. 그런데 늘 똑같은 얘기를 하니까 의미가 없는 것 같다. 시간을 버리는 것 같다. 그래서 신문 인터뷰가 재미없다. 다들 ‘컨트롤 C’, ‘컨트롤 V’ 버튼 누르는 것처럼 똑같은 질문을 하니 지루하다.
To prepare for today, I read a lot of your previous interviews. Usually, when people are asked something, they try to answer to match the question, but it seems like when you don’t like the questions, you just pass. When I am asked new questions, I can have new answers. But when the interviews are the same old same old, there is no meaning doing it. I feel like I am wasting my time. Everyone’s questions are like ‘Ctrl-C’, ‘Ctrl-V’ (or copy and paste), it is boring.
‘곤조’가 있네. 느끼는 대로 이야기하는 거다. 새로운 자극을 받아야 나도 새로운 생각을 할 수 있다. 반면 나에 대해 여러모로 재미있게 준비해서 질문하시는 분들도 있다. 그럴땐 내가 대답을 잘 못하는 상황이 생긴다. 그러면 나도 생각할 기회가 생기니 뭔가를 얻어서 가는 거다.
You have a ‘temper.’ I am just saying what I have felt. When I have new stimulations, I can think of new things. On the other hand, some interviewers prepare fun and good questions. In that case, sometimes I can’t find the right answer. Then I have a chance to think, so I get something from the interview.

새로움에 대한 갈망이 많은 사람인데, 틈이 없는 생활에서 영감은 어떻게 얻나? 일단 작품을 할 땐 그 안에서 떠오르는 것들을 표현하는 거다. 내가 가진 것들을 표현하는 거지 새로운 걸 만들려고 하면 더 이상해지는 것 같다. 나이가 들수록 자연스럽게 계속 다른 ‘내’가 작품 속에 묻어 나오는 것 같다. 그래서 ‘윤동하’는 27세의 박서준이 표현할 수 있는 딱 그만큼을 표현한 것뿐이다. 내년엔 28세가 되니까 그때 가선 또 다른 모습을 이야기 할 수 있겠지.
You have a thirst for new things (or knowledge), how do you get inspired with your busy schedule? I express what I have in that moment when I act. I just express what I have, I don’t try to make up new things because it makes my acting unnatural. As I age, different sides of myself come out naturally in pieces. Therefore, ‘Yun Dong-ha’ is an expression of the 27-year-old Park Seo-joon, no more than that. I will be 28 years old next year, so I can talk about a different me next year.
작품 하나하나가 나이테인 셈이네. 그래서 과거 작품이 소중하다. [따뜻한 말 한마디]를 끝낸 게 불과 몇 달 전이지만 아마 다시 그 작품을 하라고 하면 못할 거다. 그때 그 상황에서 최선을 다했기 때문에 똑같이 못하는 거다. 연기자라는 직업이 참 좋은 것 같다. 내 모습이 영상으로 남으니까 과거의 내가 어땠는지 알 수 있잖아. 어쨌든 나는 매 순간 즐겁게 살고 싶다. 죽어 있는 것처럼 시간을 쓰는 게 싫다.
So, each of your projects is like your growth ring. That is why my old projects are important. It has been a few months since I finished [One Warm Word] but I don’t think I can do it the same again. I did my best at that time under those circumstances, so I can’t replicate it now. I think being an actor is a good occupation because my appearance is locked in the film, so I can always remember who I was previously. Anyhow, I want to enjoy moments. I don’t want to spend my time as a dead person.
삶을 드라마처럼 느끼면서 나는 그 순간 느끼는 감정이 ‘최고’라고 생각한다. 물론 되돌아봤을 때 아쉬운 점도 있지만 솔직히 그 상황에선 그게 최선이었다고 생각한다. 연기할 때도 아직 감각으로 하는 편이다. 뭔가 계산해서 하는 것보다 자연스러운 게 좀 더 나은 연기 같거든.
Do you feel real life as if it is a drama? I think the feeling you have at that moment is the best. Of course, in retrospect, I have some regrets, but I think it was the best thing I could do at that moment. When I act, I still follow my instincts. I think acting naturally is better than acting with calculated moves.
대화를 좋아하는 사람 같다. 사람 상대하는 게 가장 어려운데 또 재미가 있다.
I think you like conversations. Interacting with people is the most difficult thing, but it has its own fun factor.
어디 가서 절대 기죽는 스타일은 아닌 것처럼 보인다. 자신만만하다. 자만처럼 보이려나. 내가 나를 지켜야지, 안 그러면 살아남을 수 없는 바닥이다. 내가 나를 사랑해야 한다. 이 일 자체가 사생활 터치가 심하니까. 우울증으로 힘들어하는 상황도 생기잖아. 이해가 가더라. 사람이 한번 바닥으로 떨어지면 다시 올라가기가 쉽지 않잖아. 그런 심경을 나도 느껴봤기 때문에.
You look like you don’t get discouraged in any circumstance. You look confident. Do I look too sure of myself? I have to protect myself, otherwise, I won’t be able to survive in this industry. I have to love myself. My personal life gets meddled with a lot because of my job. Quite a few people are depressed. When people hit rock bottom, it is difficult to get back. I have also felt those emotions.
2012년에 데뷔하고 난 뒤로 별로 어려움이 없었던 걸로 아는데. 작품 하기 전에 그랬다. ‘내가 과연 배우 생활을 견딜 수 있을까’란 의문에서 시작해 좀 깊이 생각에 빠졌던 것 같다. 근데 나는 내가 회사에 들어간 뒤에 배우를 준비했다고 생각하지 않는다. 내가 본 것, 듣는 것, 느끼는 것 전부 트레이닝이 아니겠나. 필드에 나온 게 오래되지 않았다뿐이지 준비는 계속 하고 있었다고 생각한다. 그 과정 속에서 왠지 내 시간만 멈춰 있는 것 같았다. 주위에 사람이 없는 것 같기도 했고. 그런 생각을 계속 반복하니까 우울해지더라.
I thought you didn’t have any hard times since you debuted in 2012. Before I started in this profession, I asked myself ‘Can I survive the life of an actor?’ and it got deeper. But I don’t think I started to prepare myself as an actor after I joined the company. Everything I saw, heard, and felt are all training, right? I think I was always preparing myself to be an actor even though my acting career is short. During that process, I thought my time has stopped. I also felt like I had no one around me. It was quit depressing to think about those things over and over again.
모순된 삶이지. 누가 날 알아줘야 캐스팅이 되는데, 너무 잘 알려지는 건 또 싫으니. 일상을 방해받긴 싫다. 나도 편하게 생활하고 싶으니까. 거리를 걷고 있는데 사진 찍자고 하면 얼마든지 찍을 수 있다. 하지만 누군가와 함께 있을 땐 불편해지더라. 굉장히 사소한 거지만 그런 점 때문에 자꾸 갇히게 된다. 집에 늘 혼자 있게 된다.
It is a very contradictory life. You can only be cast if people know who you are, but at the same time, you don’t want to be too well known to the people. I don’t want my daily life disrupted. I want to have a comfortable easy life. It is fine with me if someone wants to take a picture with me on a street. But it becomes a little uncomfortable when I am with someone. It is trivial, but it makes me not want to leave my house. I stay home alone frequently.
소속사 1호 배우라던데. (김)수현이가 프로필이 있는 상황에서 소속사와 계약했다면 내 경우는 프로필이 없는 상황이었다. 우리 회사 입장에서 처음 키운 신인이 잘되는 과정이라서 그런 표현을 자주 쓴다.
I heard you were the first actor at your company. (Kim) Su-hyun signed his contract while he already had his profile, but I signed my contract without any profile. My company likes to say I am the first one because I started my career there and I am growing well.

I feel like I'm running this thread or at least taking it over, lol.

Here is another interview from Elle, it's the last one. I think I'm crowding this forum out by posting the actual interview. Maybe some people reading don't want to see all those words everywhere? Just in case, I won't post the entire thing here. Someone else can feel free to copy it over here though, I don't mind!


Have a great day everyone!
