“When being asked if he becomes more understanding towards his bodyguards that protect him in real life after filming Man x Man, Park Hae Jin laughed, “My bodyguards are like my brothers and family members. They are the ones that most look forward to me starring as Kim Seol Woo. But they are of not much help to me acting this character because in this drama, Kim Seol Woo is a special agent disguised as a bodyguard. However, I did learn from them the correct and polite way of addressing clients and the proper way to open car doors.”

Park Hae Jin’s performance in the drama had received praises. However, he was modest and said his performance is only worth 60 marks. He said, “I have never been satisfied with my works. I really cannot appraise my ownself but I would say around 60 marks? I always feel that I can do even better. “


“Park Hae Jin went to Hungary Budapest for 3 weeks of overseas shooting. He ate well and slept well there. He said, “The working hours there during filming have to adhere to strict rules. Thus, we had to have our meals punctually and abide by the shooting rules and requirements. I was surprised. Actually, from filming perspective, this is a normal schedule. But in Korea, the situation is completely opposite. Due to the tight schedule, not only the actors but the shooting crew also can’t have decent rest and sleep. Thus, we were all very pleased to be able to work together in a better environment. Normally, overseas shooting is challenging and schedule is very tight as we have to complete shooting within the limited time as per plan. But this time, the whole shooting process was full of happiness and thrill. ” .

.Park Hae Jin said the first shooting location is very dusty and the second location is really a prison where the real prisoners were imprisoned. Although Park Hae Jin did not talk to them, but being at close proximity with these burly overseas prisoners was an unforgettable experience for him. Park Hae Jin further revealed that the prison officers that appeared in the drama are all real prison officers. Hence, viewers may feel that they are so realistic.”

“Earlier, Park Hae Jin filmed “Cheese in the Trap” which is of romance genre. This time round, he is filming another drama with heavy masculine flavour following Bad Guys. He said he personally prefers filming movies and dramas with masculine flavour. However, when reading new scripts, there is no special preference for a particular type. He will take up the project if it is suitable for him. As he had acted many roles before, now he would like to act as an ordinary person. He said, “I am keen on acting as a lonely and timid person, like a real story that often appears in our normal daily lives. If I could put down all the burden to narrate a story relating to happenings in our daily lives, I would definitely gain alot from it. “

Earlier, Park Hae Jin came to Hong Kong to attend his wax figure event. However, he did not have time to sightsee. He likes the food and shops in Hong Kong very much and hopes to stay a little longer. Like other Korean actors, Park Hae Jin grew up watching HK movies. He has been paying attention to HK movies and amongst them, he had watched all the movies of Leslie Cheung screened in the later period. Andy Lau and Chow Yun Fatt are still his idols. Park Hae Jin even commented, “I often say, if I have the opportunity to work with Stephen Chow, my dream has come true. ” (THE END) .

Insights on Park Hae Jin… the actor, his ideal type, Song Joong Ki


In an interview of Park Hae Jin, Park Sung Woong and Kim Min Jung with the Taiwan Media on 19 May 2017, we were able to learn some insight on our man of the hour, Park Hae Jin,  He is currently starring in the JTBC drama Man to Man where he plays as an undercover agent who was assigned as a bodyguard to superstar Yeo Un-gwang.  Here are some of the news sharings:

When asked about his ideal type, Park hae Jin said that he likes quiet girls. [Is it me? 🙂 ] He feels that it is important to meet someone whom he can spend the rest of his life with.  He hopes that in the future, his other half has similar personalities as him, someone who shares similar interest as him and they can have discussion about anything under the sun.

Park Hae Jin revealed he knows Song Joong Ki personally but this was the very first time he worked with him. He praised Song Joong Ki for being a very nice and upright person, and is an excellent actor.  He said that he often pays attention to his works. [Actually really good actors usually pay attention to works of other good actors because they want to learn more, showing humility and appreciation to the works of others.  Lee Jong Suk also does this as he watches works of other actors too.]

Park Sung Woong said that even though Park Hae Jin has now become a Hallyu star, there is no change in him.  He continues to be extremely respectful towards seniors, maintains a very good attitude and also very professional.  He is very happy to work with him again.

Park Sung Woong mentioned that at the beginning, naturally everyone felt a bit awkward.  So after the 1st script reading, they went  drinking together and they became closer and filming became smoother.  H praised Hae Jin for knowing how to socialize.  Even though he doesn’t drink, he would still often attend the gatherings.

As for Kim Min Jung, she said that at the beginning, there was not much time for her to cultivate understanding with Park Hae Jin.  Thus, during shooting, they had meals together and became closer.

“That PBY was my leading lady, that entire thing was a burden”

As soon as a drama ends and especially when it had a successful run, the actors would be baraged with a lot of interviews here and there.  I caught this one interview from http://www.mydaily.co.kr and it was in Hangul, fortunately my dongsaeng @stroppyse from Soompi translated this and I was given permission to share this on my blog.  Thank you dongsaeng!


“That Park Bo Young was my leading lady, that entire thing was a burden”

In the JTBC Friday-Saturday drama ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’, the ‘actor’ Park Hyung Sik’s performance was judged to have risen a level. It is the first work where he was able to cast off the title of being an idol and was considered to be a true actor. And so, he is now known as ‘new actor’ Park Hyung Sik.


“ From the very beginning, ’Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’ was a very burdensome work. The director took me in that state and basically had to raise me. It was to such a degree that he had to drag me out like that. (Comment: He means that he was very nervous, and that the director had to provide a lot of guidance to get his performance.) Having acted while hearing ’try it as you want to do it’, for the first time, I realized that I was able to act like this. It was because there were many seniors actors and a good teacher like Park Bo Young with me. This is the first time that it’s been so much fun while shooting.”

During the interview, Park Hyung Sik used the phrase “feeling burdened” several times. During the broadcast run of ’Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’, his response to reporters’ questions was to confess to feeling burdened. When asked “What was such a burden?”, Park Hyung Sik answered “That the actress Park Bo Young was to be my acting partner, that entire thing.”


“Those whom I respect so much, Jo Jung Seok, Cha Tae Hyun, Song Joong Ki and other senior (actors), Park Bo Young acted with them. How could someone who was able to match performances with such good actors now be matching her performance to a newbie like me… it wouldn’t be right if I became a big problem for the production, so I felt very burdened by it. And then on the day of the script reading, I also made a mistake. Everyone was very worried, but (Park Bo Young) said to me ’Why are you trying to do it by yourself. Trust the director, trust me, and let’s do it’. Since she grabbed my hand like that, I was able to be more comfortable.” (Comment: He’s talking about PBY metaphorically grabbing his hand to steady and guide him rather than actually taking his hand.) Once his body was able to relax, as if taking to water, Park Hyung Sik was able to start becoming the slick leading male actor Ahn Min Hyuk. Park Bo Young also said in an interview complimenting him “Park Hyung Sk was entirely Ahn Min Hyuk”.

“In about the middle of the drama, I gained some confidence. I think I was able to start becoming more confident when I started going to the director a little less. At the beginning, because of my worrying about the character, I really went to the director a lot. However as I became more confident, without hesitating by myself, I was able to “Go”. (Comment: This means that instead of deliberating and hesitating, not knowing what to do, he was able to take the character and act his scenes out.) In truth, even after that, I asked Bo Young noona once. Whether I was a little better now. Noona answered me with a smile ‘Are you still worrying about things like that’. I liked that matching of our performance very much.

The Proposal – Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

What I love about Strong Woman Do Bong Soon is that it did not cheat on important matters that us viewers would appreaciate.  In a very Ahn Min Hyuk fashion, he prepared a very thoughful proposal to Do Bong Soon amidst the lovely sakura trees, it’s petals falling like snow, like blessings for their love.  I hope I’d still be able to make fan arts for this drama after its run.  That remains to be seen. 🙂

All about Ahn Min Hyuk feels

The whole time that I was watching Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, I found that its strongest point is Ahn Min Hyuk’s unwavering love to Do Bong Soon.  I made a music video hoping to capture all the feels in the song I chose.  Listen, enjoy and share.

The hug and kiss scene fan art – SWDBS

The episodes 11 and 12 proved to be two of the most memorable part of Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.  Unexpectedly we were treated to a very emotional hug scene in episode 11 of which I have a separate article posted.  On episode 12, we had been waiting and despairing when the kiss would happen.  No worries, we always do that in kdramaland, even as early as episode 1 people would ask when the kiss would be.  It was quite a wait for the Avengers and was pleasantly appeased when Ahn Min Hyuk (Park Hyung Sik) and Do Bong Soon (Park Bo Young) did kiss in episode 12.  Here are my fan arts/wallpapers on these lovely scenes.
