[오뉴스=Mai Dang 해외통신원]=Actor Park Seo-Joon, who is celebrating his 10th year of debut this year, departed for London, England on the 3rd this month to film at Marvel Studios for the movie ‘The Marvels’.
At that time, Park Seo-joon's agency, Awesome ENT, said, "Park Seo-joon confirmed his appearance in the Marvel Studios' movie and left the country this afternoon. I would like to thank all of you for your interest and support for Park Seo-joon's new challenge." He said, "Detailed information about the movie, including the name of the project, the character, filming location, and filming period will be announced later”.
Screen Land, an oversea media platform, reported that Park Seo-Joon’s role is likely to be Amadeus Cho, a Korean hero in ‘The Marvels’. Amadeus Cho is a Korean-American scientist who transforms into the Hulk. Helen Cho, played by Soo-hyeon in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', was the mother of Amadeus Cho. With this, Park Seo-joon became the third Korean actor to appear in a Marvel movie after Soo-hyeon (Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Ma Dong-seok (The Eternals). Captain Marvel's second series, 'The Marvels', is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2022.
Meanwhile, actor Park Seo-joon made his first acting debut in the 2012 drama 'Dream High 2' by playing the role of an idol. Then, in 2013, he played the role of the son of a chaebol in 'Gold Come Out, Ttuk Ttuk!’ and received his first acting award. Park Seo-joon later said in an interview that this work was a turning point in his life.
Park Seo-joon first starred in the drama 'Witch's Love' in 2014. He then gained popularity by portraying a young and rich man. After that, in 2015, Park Seo-joon made his screen debut and established himself as a leading actor. In particular, he won the Popular Star Award at the Blue Dragon Film Awards for his role as detective Cha Dong-jae in his screen debut, 'The Chronicles of Evil'.
Park Seo-joon became publicly known to fans in earnest when he appeared as a new part-timer in the entertainment show 'Youn's Kitchen'. He showed a different charm from dramas and movies, an absolutely solid physique and visual appearance. In particular, the way he spoke Spanish, which he only learned in favor to his short-term attributes, and openly communicated with local people was adored by viewers for his efforts and thorough preparation. After the end of Yoon's Kitchen, Park Seo-joon continued extending his popularity by leading the role of a chaebol in the drama “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim”, and achieving a positive rate of 8.7%.
'Itaewon Class' upgraded actor Park Seo-joon one big step further. Through one of the world’s biggest content platform Netflix, the drama was release to more than 190 countries and gained huge popularity in Asia. 'Itaewon Class' spread the popularity of Park Seo-joon across borders as well as with the Korean Hallyu, making him stand tall as a representative actor of the Korean Wave. Many film critics evaluate actor Park Seo-joon as 'a clever actor who is very good at acting'. In 'What's Wrong with Secretary Kim', he skillfully played a narcissist character, but in ‘Itaewon Class’, he played a completely different role as Park Sae-roi, showing his versatile acting skills.
Also, Nia DaCosta, directed the reboot of ‘Candy Man’ and is well known for her anacdotes, is the first black female ever to direct a movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In August 2020, she posted a photo of actor Park Seo-Joon in ‘Itaewon Class’ and tweeted “My new drama boyfriend.” Also, director Francis Lawrence of the 'The Hunger Games' series praised Park Seo-joon as a "Korea's Ryan Gosling" after watching the movie 'Lion'.
From supporting roles to leading roles, and from Korea to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Park Seo-joon's moves are unstoppable. According to the American film database site IMDb, Park Seo-joon was added to the cast list for the Marvel Studios movie 'The Marvels'. If Soo-hyeon won a significant role through auditions, Ma Dong-seok and Park Seo-joon were the first to be contacted by Marvel.
Park Seo-joon, who celebrated the 10th anniversary of his debut this year, was asked by the media, 'What kind of Park Seo-joon will he become in 10 years?" He shared "I was able to live a full life because I was able to enjoy doing what I love, and I think I gained a lot more energy because there are many people who relentlessly support me.” “Looking back on 10 years now, when one wall is over, there is always another one. It doesn't go smoothly, some that ｒｅｑｕｉｒｅ you to overcome with sweat and tears. It will continue to be so for the next 10 years. I just hope that I am not the one who could do any harm but happiness to others”.
