It’s 3:33PM, and right on cue, 28-year-old Park Seo Joon strides into the press conference venue, smiling and posing obligingly for the media. Though the actor may strike an imposing figure, what with his polished appearance and easy smile, the actor confessed during the press conference that he’s actually “a very shy person”. 

When asked to share how he usually prepares for kissing scenes, the actor smiles bashfully at first, and ponders for a few seconds before replying, “I don’t have any special preparations for these scenes. Basically, I’ll try to put myself in my character’s shoes, in order to film a good [kissing] scene.”

Towards the end of the press conference, the actor was also asked to share what he thought was the appeal behind his “boyfriend-like charms”.

Seemingly stumped for an answer, Park Seo Joon thought for a minute, before letting out a laugh, answering hesitantly, “I feel quite shy to have gained this title, actually. I think my appeal is my honesty. I’m pretty curious as to what my fans think my appeal is too.”

Ever the professional, the actor also revealed that he does not let his shy personality affect him when it comes to work.

“[Yes], I’m a very shy person in real life, but when I’m filming, I try to put those thoughts aside, and I try to focus on filming, and take the lead,” he said.

The actor also shared that he had asked his Midnight Runner co-star, Kang Ha Neul , who had dropped by Singapore earlier this year, how his visit went, with the latter sharing that there were “loads of interviews to do” here. The duo had also planned to catch up once they were both back in Korea, only for Kang Ha Neul to end up enlisting in the army for his mandatory military service.

The organisers also prepared some local snacks for the actor to sample during the press conference, with two fluffy slices of green pandan cake and a fresh coconut served on-stage.

Park Seo Joon, who first sniffed curiously at the pandan cake before sampling it, shared that he really liked the taste, and that he had tried something similar before.

The fitness enthusiast, who’s known for his ripped body, also revealed that unfortunately, he has to restrict his diet, and that he can’t enjoy such cakes frequently, even though he likes them.

To wash down the pandan cake, the actor then took a long sip of the fresh coconut juice, and said, “I drink this in Korea as well, though it’s usually packed in a tetra-pak there”.

After a slight pause, he then added, “It’s good for [curing] hangovers,” to chortles from everyone present. 

As for the upcoming year, Park Seo Joon revealed that while he does not have anything specific planned for the next year, he hopes to be able to meet a good project, so as to show more sides of him to the public, not just in 2018, but in the years to come as well.
