Park Bo-gum stole the hearts of many Asian fans in his recently concluded K-drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. He is now emerging as one of the most sought-after South Korean actors.
His acting prowess was visibly evident in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, which stole the top spot in K-drama ratings.
Blossom Entertainment says Park Bo-gum’s popularity has translated into more business.
“He’s firmly established himself as a lead actor through this drama. We’re getting more than three times as many requests as before for his appearance in dramas,”said Seung Byeong-wook, a senior official at Park’s management agency Blossom Entertainment.
The Korea Institute of Corporate Reputation collected 34,665,904 pieces of data for 20 CF models. Park Bo-gum stood proudly at the top of the October data with 8,618,542 points, almost four times of his previous month data.
At a recent interview, when Soompi asked the actor about his soaring popularity, Park Bo-gum said, “I didn’t feel it while the drama was airing, but it hit me during fan meetings afterwards. I was surprised to see more people than I expected. I greeted them because I was so thankful, but it became even more crowded. What I realized then was that other people could be harmed due to my actions and words.”
There’s more good news for Park Bo-gum fans. The Hallyu heartthrob has been confirmed to host the 2016 KBS Drama Awards on December 31.
Meanwhile, fans of Park Bo-gum are eager to see the next big project featuring their favorite star.
