Although he’s shown his face through variety shows and commercials, if you watch a movie, he’ll show his game in about 4 years from now. and if you include a drama, it will be its first time in 3 years since < Classe Itaewon>.

Park Seo-joon met reporters at a cafe in Sogyeok-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 18th and said, “We continued filming after ‘Itaewon Class,’ but everything will be released this year. to make a work is to meet audiences and viewers, but I felt stagnated because there was no reaction, either good or bad reviews,” he said. mindset of enjoying the moment rather than feeling overwhelmed,” he said.

is a film based on the true story of the 2010 Homeless World Cup. Hongdae, played by Park Seo-joon, is a K-League soccer player. He trains harder than anyone else, but in the team he is right behind Park Seong-chan (Kang Ha-neul). Hongdae, who has come under fire for assaulting a journalist, is taking on the role of national team head coach for the Homeless World Cup to “clean up his image”. Hongdae practices football with homeless people who have a lot of stories but lack skills, and tries to shoot a touching documentary with PD So-min (IU).

Director Lee said he planned before making the movie . He personally covered the homeless and created the character stories, and accompanied the Homeless World Cup held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 2015. Park Seo-joon said his perception of homelessness had changed a lot after participating in this film. He said, “Isn’t there a certain image that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘homeless’? It seems that I haven’t been able to look more closely at the fact that there is no one without a story, and that no one became homeless because they wanted to be homeless. The movie was an opportunity to completely break those things,” he said.

Hongdae also has a complicated history. The mother, who is being prosecuted for committing fraud, comes to Hongdae and asks for a loan. I practice breaking my bones, but the game is not going well. Park Seo-joon explained that he tried to play the character Hongdae in three dimensions without confining him to a specific image.

“Rather than going with an abstract framework of ‘this character is like that’, I try to think ‘this person could be like that’. It doesn’t matter how serious a person is, when you meet a real close friend , you can be talkative or shy. Humans have so many different facets, and I think a character can’t be three-dimensional the moment you confine them to the thoughts that define them. Depending on the given situation in Hongdae, I I expressed it with the mindset that it could be like that outside the football field, even if it is like that inside the football field.

Just like Hongdae, who feels like he’s falling behind teammate Sung-chan, Park Seo-joon also felt inferior. He said: “Of course there are times when I feel inferior and I have complexes, but I think these are the best weapons to develop myself.” went. But when I got over it, I felt like I was leaping forward. He continued, “Every job is a challenge that makes me think, ‘Can I really do well? I already know very well that working hard to overcome this is my forte. You have to dig yourself into a corner to do it,” he said. “Rather than worry, do it. I do it with the mindset of “Let’s bump into each other”. There are times when it’s easier than worrying when we cross paths.

Park Seo-joon plans to present several works, starting with which will be released on the 26th. In the summer, , in which he starred, is on screen.
