OCT 22 News:
Actor Park Bo-gum wins ‘older’ women’s hearts
“Park Bo-gum, the 23-year-old star of the recently ended TV series “Love in the Moonlight,” is basking in that glory more than ever and enjoying a phenomenon shared by few others in the industry, with a following of women not only in their 20s and 30s, but also in their 60s and 70s.
Park portrayed a young and mischievous crown prince who falls in love with a woman disguised as a eunuch. In his endearing character, the “mothers” and “grandmothers” who watched the series saw the manifestation of the son they always wished they had. His traditional attire and conservative manners as a Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) prince probably added to his charm.”
Excerpts from English translated article by KPOPHERALD
“Park Bogum captivates fans from teens to grandmas… reminiscent of ‘Yonsama syndrome’
His schedule for the rest of 2016:
” Park Bogum who finished (filming) ‘Moonlight Drawn by Clouds’ is now carrying out commercial filming schedules which have piled up. In November he will be travelling to Europe and US for a photoshoot which also doubles as a holiday.
There are also plans underway for a fanmeeting tour around Asia from the end of the year.
Director (of Blossom Entertainment) Seung ByeongOk relayed: “He (Bogum) lost so much weight while ‘live filming’ his drama, he was (almost) in the state of being on the brink of collapsing” and that “He will rest for the time being and will choose his next production in the first half of next year”. “
Due to his extremely kind, polite and respectful image added to his wonderful talent for acting his role as Lee Yeong, Bogummy has sparked romantic feelings in teens, and triggered the maternal instincts in noona to grandma fans…
From some photos which had spread over the internet, it appears he has some new demographic as well…
