[Actor Spotlight] Park Bo-gum

This week the actor spotlight falls on “the nation’s little brother,” Park Bo-gum. Currently starring in tvN’s Boyfriend alongside Song Hye-gyo, Park Bo-gum’s career continues on the upswing with another critical success, and an ever-growing fandom.

Born in 1993 in Seoul, South Korea, Park Bo-gum focused on music for many years until he turned his talents to acting. He made his debut in 2011 with a small role in the film Blind. He then built his resume with a wide range of supporting roles, gaining credibility and attracting notice. In 2013 he won a leading role in weekend drama Wonderful Mama, but 2015 was really Park Bo-gum’s breakout year. 2015 started with I Remember You, and ended with Answer Me 1988. Catapulted into fame after the huge success of both Answer Me 1988 and Moonlight Drawn By Clouds the following year, Park Bo-gum quickly became a household name and was given the nation’s little brother nickname.

Here are some dramaland highlights from Park Bo-gum, followed by his full filmography.

 
I Remember You (2015)

I watched I Remember You after I saw Answer Me 1988, and something felt wrong with the universe when Park Bo-gum didn’t play the smiling puppy. Did he even smile in thus drama at all? It wasn’t exactly lighthearted: Seo In-gook starred as a genius profiler with a pretty disturbing and secret past. There were a lot of great reveals and twists in the drama that I wouldn’t want to spoil, but suffice it to say that I Remember You makes the most of Seo In-gook’s and Park Bo-gum’s talents on the screen. Add Choi Won-young to the mix, and you have yourself a cast that can pretty much carry any story through the requisite layers of darkness (creepy basements, serial killings, etc.), and into light.

 
Answer Me 1988 (2015)

Ah, Answer Me 1988. This installment of the Answer Me series had my heart in a giant knot from start to finish. The story followed a group of families in yes, 1988, and Park Bo-gum was a great addition to the strong ensemble cast. He played one of the neighborhood teens who was a quiet, reserved, baduk-playing genius. Despite really enjoying Park Bo-gum’s portrayal of this character, with all his softness and spaciness and smiles, I think I’m still recovering from the first-lead-turned-second-lead-syndrome that this drama caused me (and so many others). The series is famous for telling a story of young teens, and then teasing out which characters wound up as couples. In Answer Me 1988, it did not go quite as expected. You were either really happy, or really unhappy. It’s unfair to make such a fantastic drama with so much depth just about the love line between two teens, though โ€” the story was wonderfully rich, and no character was left unexplored.

 
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds (2016)

One of the biggest dramas of 2016, KBS sageuk Moonlight Drawn By Clouds topped 20% ratings and created “Moonlight syndrome” (the obsession that can sometimes occur when a drama hits all the right notes and becomes a pop culture sensation). Adapted from a serialized novel of the same name, the story followed the Crown Prince Yi Yeong, played by Park Bo-gum, as he came of age. Co-star Kim Yoo-jung, in a great transition role, played the girl brought up as a boy, who later became a “eunuch” at the court. In addition to having two leads that became even more popular in the wake of this drama, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds also had a strong supporting cast of newer actors like Chae Soo-bin and Kwak Dong-yeon, whose careers have been on the rise since. Every now and then there is a huge, beloved drama that I totally miss the boat on, and Moonlight was one of them. Half the fun is watching it live and getting immersed in the fandom, but I think Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is a soon-to-be K-drama classic that will bear the test of time (and some belated viewing!).

 
Boyfriend (2018)

tvN’s currently airing noona romance Boyfriend has only a few more weeks left in its run. It has been consistent with not only its ratings, but with the pace of the storytelling. It’s deliberate and steady and purposefully told. For a story about a woman with a dating scandal and a chaebol organization at her throat, this drama somehow manages (at least so far) to keep everything even keel. While I sometimes find it slow, I will not say it’s without quality, and the pace and direction are a huge part of that (just contrast it to the high-rated makjang extravaganza of An Empress’s Dignity). Park Bo-gum plays the boyfriend in Boyfriend, and his character, though gentle as a mouse, is shaking up the chaebol world around him. When this drama first started I wasn’t sure what sort of a character he would play โ€” honestly, I expected him to be a little more edgy/dangerous/swoony. Instead, Park Bo-gum plays a sweet and smiling lamb who becomes a calming shelter for Song Hye-gyo’s heroine. I love that this story is about character, class, and collectedness winning over jealousy, greed, and more greed, and I hope it stays as strong in its final weeks. Kill them with that innocent smile, Bo-gum.

    Manhwa turned drama starring Joo Won in this story of a vigilante freedom fighter in 1930s occupied Korea. Park Bo-gum has a small role in three episodes. This is one of those dramas that I know is well-loved, but I somehow missed.

Bogummyyyyy! I loveeee him!

I discovered the brilliant actor that he was in I Remember You, fell in love with the adorableness that was Taekie in AM88 and swooned over the mischievous prince he was in MDBC. Add in dollops of "angel on earth" that was him in Youth Over Flowers and trust me, it's a perfect recipe!

I have dropped Encounter as it didn't attract me a lot but I am gonna turn up for his next project for sure <3

P.S. That smile! Such a sunshine!

Same! My love for SIG led me to IRY, which helped me to discover PBG.
And I was one of the very few ppl who was satisfied with how R88 turned out( helped by the fact that I already knew the endgame.)

I actually fell in love with Ziggy in IRY itself. Like I knew and liked him a lot already but IRY was where he became my fav actor.

Ooh I was okay with R88 ending too, mostly because while I loved both of them, I had called Taekie to be the endgame way before. Still mad that they didn't give Jungpal much scenes in last episode though.
Not getting the girl is okay but not getting a satisfying end to his story was not okay..

For me, as you know very well, I was a goner in R97. My first favorite actor! I was about to give up watching Korean series. He saved kdramas for me.

Yep it was like JH disappeared from the series! He didn't deserve that. Even the parents got more screen time. And even though it was an ensemble cast, the 5 kids were still the center of it all. Him and the funny guy (forgot his name) were completely ignored.

Oh yeah! I remember your posts! They were fun!

Thank you but which posts? I didn't post much about R88.
I mostly discussed JBL with azzo and giegie.

Oh wait there were two posts going around the same time- one was an R88 and one was Weightlifting Fairy ones... maybe you did those?

I call him my Ultimate Bread for a reason, I suppose. Baker that I am, I love the seeming simplicity of bread : All one really needs is flour, yeast, and water. You can mix it up with other ingredients for some pizazz, but even with those three ingredients, something warm, genuine, and deliciously wonderful is delivered into your hands. He livens and brightens dramas with his presence, and is a sturdy, reliable base, so thereโ€™s a trust that, whatever role heโ€™s playing, he will do well and make us feel. (...am I the only one who has these emotions towards bread? Okay.)

And just as time adds depth and complexity of flavor to bread, PBGโ€™s acting has only improved throughout the years. His micro-expressions, smile, and eyes have somehow become even better than they were before. (Or maybe.. maybe Iโ€™m just more endeared. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ)

Now for some simple substitution :
Bread = Comfort
Bread = PBG
PBG = Comfort (unless heโ€™s crying or playing a lovable psychopath, in which case... listen to your best jams and cry as you try to offer hugs through the screen.)

Iโ€™ll stop my rambling with : PBG, youโ€™re swell. Keep up the good work. I donโ€™t want to eat you.

Most definitely my second favorite actor out there, because he manages to make me care about him on a personal level (which I rarely ever care about who an actor is outside of acting). I even named our cat after him. Moonlight is my second favorite kdrama and I just missed live watching this. I have about a dozen kdrama ideas floating in my head and half of them I would want him playing the lead or co-lead. He can play dark, light, mischievous, the lover or antagonist, and as we saw in Reply 1988, the dark horse as well. AND. THAT. FACE. Thank the Lord he has that face and has chosen a career that graces us with it.

The first time I ever saw PBG was in I Remember You and he BLEW me away. Especially after seeing what his real self is like.
I honestly can't think of any other Korean actor in his mid-20s of his calibre, acting-wise.

Since the first time I saw him on screen, he has consistently blown me away. I'm always attracted to his work, not necessarily because he's starring in it (although that's a big incentive), but because it's usually a well-told story. I think he has a good eye in choosing scripts.
MDBC and I Remember You are both in my top 10 dramas, and currently I'm really loving Encounter.
I'm honestly lucky to exist in the same era with such talent.
I hope he keeps on choosing wonderful scripts like these in the future...
And ofc continue to light up the world with his kindness and smile.

Taekie~โ™ฅ๏ธ Reply 1988, one of all time favourites ever. Iโ€™ll always remember Park Bo Gum for playing my most favourite male lead - the kind of male lead who doesnโ€™t yell and look down on the girl that he likes. Who remains soft spoken to her even when they argue or bicker. Taek changed my interest in male leads - his kind is what I look for now in the dramas I watch. Itโ€™s rare I know, and that makes him my most favourite โ˜บ๏ธ

I sadly dropped Boyfriend, but I hope to see him again on his next project - and that he does one again this year.

So my favorite thing he did - it made me laugh out loud - was when Hyori was going on about how handsome he is and Sang-soon says, "I bet he gets tired of hearing that." Just then PBG walks by and just says, "Nope, I don't." and keeps on walking by. Such good comedic timing!

He's just like a ray of sunshine, like someone you see in the morning that makes you feel like your day is better somehow. IRY introduced me to this gem of an actor (everyone loves an adorable psychopath), but he wowed me with Taek on Reply88 and I was team taek all the way so the ending didn't bother me (sorry not sorry), he then graced the screen again in moonlight and I just couldn't look away. I'd have loved boyfriend with another actress (no offense to shk, bcoz I know she's good but since I know of pbg and sjk relationship it's just weird, plz don't hate me).
I hope to visit Korea drama sets one day(maybe I'll run into him, there is no harm in dreaming).

One of my favourite dramas EVER is I remember you and PBG there was just brilliant. Maybe it's because I tend to like melos more, but sometimes it feels like there are lots who can do the sweet role, but to play that character, wow, I was blown away. Mind you, I loved all the characters there and this is the drama I recommend to everyone, but PBG just draws you in. And remembering his....
*Spoiler*

"Why did you not recognise me" just breaks my heart Everytime.
By reading this I realise that first, I can't write good comments and two I really admire his acting so much. I had to write something. ๐Ÿ˜…

I love PBG's smiles in Boyfriend, but every time when his expressions turned dark I feel much more engaged with his character.

As fun as live watching the fluffy Moonlight might have been, I actually don't think as a drama it would stand the test of time as well as I Remember You.

I cannot wait for Bogummy to do a good revenge melo like Money Flower!

He's one of kind actor who can act by his expression alone, whether be a psychopath, a sneaky crown prince, introvert lovable boy and your easygoing but hardworking man. Beside in acting, he also talented in MC, singing, playing piano and very kindhearted man... *hide before start rambling all my love for him. lol*

his smile is definitely lovely and sweet but, i might be the minority here, i find his constant big smile slightly, freaky? lol. idk it makes me feel like sometimes he tries too hard to be perfect.. which i kinda get considering his profession but still, i like him best when he's slightly less perfect and more.. human-like xD

Looks like YG's loss is dramaworld's gain. Yang Hyun Suk is said to have passed PBG during auditions. (Though I probably can't forgive YG more for passing on Honey Lee.) I wonder how Bogummy would've been as an idol.

I also liked him a lot with Red Velvet's Irene when they were hosting Music Bank together. They really had great chemistry and seemed to have worked well together.

PBG is one of my favorite k-actors, because I like him and see a lot of potential in him. He has the screen presence, and he has the acting ability (but I find that he can still improve acting-wise, though he's good).

From the dramas he's been in, I've watched:
I Remember You
Answer Me 1988
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds (but I didn't finish this, I dropped it at around ep 8)
And now I'm watching "Encounter/Boyfriend"

Bobaby is so dang cute, his leading lady is stunning, the whole production is beautiful (and Cuba!) but...why does it always seem like an indulgent aunt is taking out her nephew? When they get down to the romance stuff, it just feels like they are trying too hard to convince us this is HOT...and it's actually rather tepid. Also, I can see the acting, if you know what I mean.

But, oh, my word, is he adorable!

Btw, on a completely unrelated topic...every time Kdramas depict Westerners it always seems so stilted and unbelievable. Americans, Europeans (maybe other Asians, too?) and now Cubans. The scene BoBaby has with the Cuban hotel clerk? No, no, no...they should have asked the actor (if he was one?) to just say what he would normally say...the dialogue there was just so off.

Love Bogummy! I love his acting as Taek in R88, crown prince LY in Moonlight, and JH in Encounter. All of those 3 roles are very different from each other but heโ€™s able to portray them very well. For those of you who have not watched โ€œEncounterโ€, you should give it a try. Itโ€™s very beautiful and romantic!!

You bet @marina. He is a happy soul and have an infectious personality in the most positive way. His last short clip with HyeKyo and the PD was just so hilarious because he was dancing and making some antics around the people while the PD is instructing . He is just so natural. Even Hyori's Bed & Breakfast proved his being so positive, hardworking and the loving personality. There are just so many reasons to love him. Even his fan meets with thousands of people attending, he did not even stop shaking their hands because he wanted the fans to feel that he felt grateful towards them. He portrays his roles amazingly. Facial expressions only will melt your little heart. He is always humble in every project that he is doing, saying he is not so confident but you cant see it in his acting. He is just so versatile in acting. I hope he conquers movies this future years because he deserves being on the big screen.

I loved the way you described him. He is a precious baby boy who has stolen many hearts. We all pray for him more successful projects with great writers and production teams because he deserves the best.
