Park Seo-joon shared his two cents on why he thinks K-Dramas are very popular in different regions of the world.
Why are K-Dramas such a hit in different parts of the world?
For Park Seo-joon, he thinks it is the relatable human emotions that makes Korean series click among different audiences.
“I’m no analyst so I’m not sure. But if I were to venture a guess, I’d think that anyone in the world can relate to the human emotions and feelings of the situations that arise in these K-Dramas,” he said in an interview with Sam Oh for Smart K-Life.
He added, “I also think the actors and crew of K-dramas have improved a great deal which leads to better programs.”
Seo-joon remarked that he was very surprised upon knowing the massive popularity of K-Drama in the Philippines.
“It was surprising because I don’t take on a project expecting popularity and love. I’m also fascinated because our languages are different. I don’t really feel it until now, it still doesn’t feel real. It’s also amusing but most of all, I’m very grateful,” the actor said.
In the same interview, Seo-joon was asked for tips when it comes to style and fashion.
The Korean actor advised, “I think it’s best to know your body type and dress the way you like. If you can dress to reflect your interests, I think that’s good too.”
Seo-joon rose to popularity with his hit drama Itaewon Class, Fight For My Way, and What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim, among others.
He visited the Philippines in 2019 for a fanmeet.
He documented his trip to Manila in his YouTube vlog.
