South Korean celebrity Park Bo-gum is not only a good actor; he is also gifted with a golden voice and expertise in playing the piano. In 2019, he visited the Philippines as part of his Asian tour and fluently sang, to his Filipino fans’ delight, a local song titled, Nasa Iyo Na Ang Lahat. The Musical Theatre graduate also hit the keyboard and performed Gary Valenciano’s version of the Steven Curtis Chapman-original song I Will Be Here during the same tour.
This year, Park Bo-gum will star in two much-awaited Korean sci-fi movies: Seo Bok and Wonderland. Written and directed by Lee Yong-ju, Seo Bok is a story of an ex-intelligence agent Gi-heon (Gong Yoo), who gets involved with the first human clone named Seo Bok (Park Bo-gum). The film was originally scheduled for release in December 2020, however, it got delayed due to the pandemic. It is reported to be the first Korean big-budget film that will be released simultaneously in theatres and streaming platform TVING.

Wonderland, on the other hand, is expected to be released in the second half of 2021. In this sci-fi movie, Park Bo-gum will work together with a powerhouse cast including Bae Suzy (Start Up, While You Were Sleeping, Vagabond, Uncontrollably Fond), Jung Yu-mi (Train to Busan, Kim Ji-young: Born 1982) and Choi Woo-shik (Parasite, Fight for My Way, Youn’s Stay). The film is directed by Kim Tae-yong—the man behind the movie, Late Autumn, which starred Crash Landing On You‘s Captain Ri, Hyun Bin.
