Ever since Park Seo-Joon first appeared on our TV screens, his star power has endured. And no matter what role he does, he has this certain charm that gets us every time—he’s the “Master of romantic comedy,” after all!
While we do watch his dramas to see his gorgeous face, it wouldn’t be a success if it weren't for his on-screen partners, too.
So, as we celebrate PSJ’s 32nd birthday today, we want to know, who among PSJ’s leading ladies is your favorite?
Hwang Jung-eum in She Was Pretty (2015)
Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon’s pairing in She Was Pretty is proof that opposites do attract.
PSJ played as Ji Sung-joon, an aloof guy, who after years of studying and working in the US, returns to Korea as a magazine editor. While Hwang Jung-eum plays Kim Hye-jin, Sung-joon’s childhood friend and a clumsy and quirky but driven magazine intern.
Despite Sung-joon’s strong and arrogant personality, he grew into a charming man who eventually falls for the funny Hye-jin.
Kim Ji-won in Fight For My Way (2017)
Do you agree that men and women can’t just be friends? Well, Kim Ji-won and PSJ in Fight For My Way proves it right.
Choi Ae-ra (Kim Ji-won), an aspiring television announcer, and best friend Ko Dong-man (PSJ), a former taekwondo athlete-turned-aspiring MMA artist, grew up together chasing their dreams. After years of hiding her feelings for Dong-man, the two best friends fall in love.
Park Min-young in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim? (2018)
Park Min-young and PSJ’s on-screen chemistry in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim? was too real that fans suspected they were dating in real life. Though they denied the rumors, we still can’t help but feel kilig just thinking about it!
Min-young plays Kim Mi So, Vice Chairman Lee Young-joon’s (PSJ) secretary of nine years. Tired of her boss’ narcissistic and arrogant ways, Mi So declared she’ll resign. Young-joon is caught off guard and asks her to wait until they find a replacement. Later on, the two develop a romantic connection, which they decided to hide from their colleagues.
Kim Da-mi in Itaewon Class (2020)
They say age is just a number—and indeed it is! Despite their age gap, we found an interest in PSJ and Kim Da-mi’s love story on Itaewon Class.
Da-mi plays Jo Yi-Seo, a talented social media influencer in her late teens, who develops a crush on a random guy she met in Itaewon named Park Saeroyi (PSJ). Seeing that Saeroyi is struggling to keep his business afloat, she decides to help him by volunteering as DamBam’s manager.
Though it was a one-sided love at first, in the end, Saeroyi let go of his feelings for his childhood friend Oh Soo Ah and went for Yi-Seo.
So, who’s it for you?
