Through an interview with foreign media, actor Park Seo-joon expressed his feelings about entering Hollywood by participating in the movie “Captain Marvel 2”.
In an interview with British media outlet The Guardian on March 2nd (local time), Park Seo-joon confessed, “When I first heard that the Marvel Cinematic Universe wanted to speak with me, I couldn’t believe it. Whether I am filming in South Korea or abroad, everything is a challenge for me. So, I did feel some nerves at first. But everyone was so helpful and welcoming that I was able to find my feet really quickly.”
Park Seo-joon is expected to play the role of Korean-American teenage hero “Amadeus Cho” in “Captain Marvel 2“. However, since there is a confidentiality clause in the contract, he remained tight-lipped over the actual details, “I’m just trying to be careful with Marvel-related questions.”
Park Seo-joon, who became a global star through “Itaewon Class” (2020), said proudly, “Itaewon Class appeared in the midst of the Korean movies and drama boom, and I got to make a lot of international fans. It was only a matter of time before the world woke up to the world of Korean film and TV. I personally feel that South Korea has been making a lot of effort and spending a lot of time creating good quality films and series, but it’s always been a bit of a hidden gem. There are a lot of good films and dramas and I want them to be recognised. I feel proud that I am able to contribute to this Korean boom.”
Meanwhile, Park Seo-joon left for Hungary on March 3rd to film the movie “Dream” after recovering from COVID-19.
