An entertainment reporter revealed Park Sung Hoon’s prestigious background and education through the Free Doctor program (tvN): “On screen, Park Sung Hoon plays the son of a tycoon. In real life, he also comes from a wealthy family. Most members of the family have graduated from prestigious law and medical schools. Park Sung Hoon himself graduated from a famous international school.”
“In the family, he is the only one who joined the entertainment industry, so members often refer to him as a ‘mutant.’ But this is not a negative term. Members also express surprise when someone with artistic talent suddenly appears in the family. Park Sung Hoon’s father fully supports his pursuit of acting,” the reporter revealed about the family’s reaction when Park Sung Hoon chose to become an actor.
Park Sung Hoon officially debuted in the entertainment industry in 2008. In addition to acting, he also shines on stage. Prior to The Glory, the actor left a deep impression on the public through the television drama My Only One.
