South Korean actor Park Seo-jun got a taste of the tropical when he was in Singapore on Friday (3 November). Donning a blue pinstriped shit underneath a khaki sweater layered with a navy blue blazer on top, and matching navy blue pants with black patent loafers, Park looked ever the Korean heart throb as he met the media for a press conference at Hotel Intercontinental. While there was no chilli crab or Hainanese chicken rice for the ‘Hwarang’ star, Park had his local delights in the form of the pandan cake and coconut juice.
KBS’s “Hwarang” recently finished its run, but many of us might still be suffering from “Goblin” and “Legend of the Blue Sea” withdrawals and have yet to start on it. The term Hwarang translates pretty much directly to “Flower Gentlemen” or “Flower Knights”, but don’t let that name fool you, they were an elite fighting force of the Silla Kingdom in ancient Korea also well-versed in the arts and culture. “Hwarang” retells the tale of the organisation’s formation, but in true K-drama style, adds some romance and court intrigue into the mix, along with a star-studded cast of gorgeous actors for you to pick your favourite from.
