Biography

Born in Seoul on 16 June 1993, Park is the youngest of three siblings. His mother passed away when he was in fourth grade. His name means "precious sword" (寶劍). He started learning to play piano when he was five and initially wanted to be a singer-songwriter.

Park was in the swimming varsity team of Seoul Mokdong Middle School. During his sophomore year of high school, he sent a video of himself singing and playing the piano to prominent talent management agencies which led to several offers. Consequently, he chose Sidus HQ and became a vocal trainee of the company. Park, who have never thought of becoming an actor, later changed his career path after a suggestion that he would do well acting. After graduating from Shinmok High School, he enrolled at Myongji University's Film and Musical Studies Department. In 2015, he represented his university's cultural overseas exchange program where he traveled to cities in England, France, Italy and Switzerland.

Considered a "New Generation Hallyu Star," Park is also known for his upstanding persona. He is a Christian and volunteers to play piano for his church. Advertisers often cite his "boyishness and manliness", "easygoing and high-class image" and "bright and positive vibe". Colleagues describe Park as kind and polite with Blind co-star Kim Ha-neul saying, "his personality is really good, and he’s also very good at acting."

    “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” Co-Stars Say Park Bo Gum Goes Beyond His Role

    September 21, 2016

    On a recent episode of MBC’s “Radio Star,” “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” stars Park Chul Min and Lee Joon Hyuk appear as guests on the show, where they talk about the amazing qualities of Park Bo Gum.

    During the episode, the MCs comment, “We heard that both of you love Park Bo Gum. And that even when he’s not filming, he’ll come and do errands for the wardrobe staff.”

    Park Chul Min describes Park Bo Gum’s good deeds, saying, “One time he didn’t have filming, but he was in the wardrobe staff car. Usually when actors don’t have filming, they don’t come on set. Even if they do, they sit next to the director.”

    Lee Joon Hyuk also praises the actor, saying, “Park Bo Gum is integrity itself. He’s transparent like water. And his eyes are like a black hole that you can’t get out of. He doesn’t drink or smoke. He thoroughly maintains himself and is really kind.”

    Park Bo Gum carries traditional Korean outfit best, says costume designer [PHOTOS]

    Moonlight Drawn by Clouds airs every Mondays and Tuesdays at 10 p.m. KST on KBS TV. Facebook
    Hanbok designer Lee Jin Hee could not stop gushing about her latest muse from the period drama, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. The fabricator is seemingly awestruck by Park Bo Gum's aura and the poise he reflects in the traditional Korean dress. The 23-year-old apparently plays the 19th century Crown Prince and is seen donning the vibrant coloured ethnic attire.

    Through her social media account, the dress designer relayed: "I worked on a lot of projects, and I've met a lot of actors. There have been many actors who have great bodies and a great figure for clothes, but I think this is a first for an actor who can perfectly portray the feeling and message that I intended, as if he is one with the clothes."

    She states that Bo Gum has a natural talent which enhances his ability to complement various attires. Jin Hee also uploaded a series of Bo Gum's pictures wearing Hanbok on her social media and captioned it: "Crown Prince Bo Gum never fails to surprise me".

    "These are clothes with which I thought a lot about the presence and class. [Park Bo Gum] wore the clothes almost exactly the way I had first imagined," she further wrote.

    Jin Hee, who is a professional period dressing designer, previously revealed that a Hanbok takes at least 4-months to get ready. She told Soompi: "Making a single hanbok costume takes about four months to complete. A lot of care goes into making an outfit that matches an actor's image."

    Talk about her favorite actor yet again, the costume designer added: "Park Bo Gum fundamentally really liked the outfits that I designed. When I would be on set, he'd often grab my hand and tell me, 'The outfits are so beautiful.'"

    South Korean actress Jung Yoo Min has opened up about Hallyu star, Park Bo Gum. The duo are seen together in historical drama, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.

    During an interview with TV Report, the 32-year-old actress gushed about the 23-year-old actor. She said: "Everyone thinks of him as an angel. In real life, he's way more angelic [than people think]. He takes good care of the people around him, tries to do things for others first no matter what it is, and is really cool. Even though he's younger than me, I want to call him oppa."

    Yoo Min added: "Even my manager said he was so engrossed in the monitor [when Park Bo Gum was filming]."

    Previously, Song Joong Ki praised Bo Gum while he attended the 2016 Seoul Drama Awards. He said: "I knew 'Moonlight Drawn By Clouds' would do well, but I didn't know that it would do this well. I'm sincerely thankful, and want to thank everyone for loving Bo Gum."

    The 31-year-old actor added: "It would be great to play brothers some time, or even two guys that fight over the same girl. Regardless, I would like to work with [Park Bo Gum] in a project."
