Park Seo Joon fans, get ready as the actor's chance of breaking into Hollywood might not be that far off!
In fact, his latest movie The Divine Fury has been gaining positive reviews including one from Hunger Games and Red Sparrow filmmaker Francis Lawrence. "I was truly mesmerized by ‘The Divine Fury.’ There was a warmth to it that I never expected from watching the trailer, and it was bold and full of brilliant imagination. The experience was so powerful that it deeply lingered with me on my way home afterwards," he told the Korean movie's director Kim Joo Hwan in their meeting last month.
"The acting was excellent, the mise-en-scène was beautiful, and the visuals left a strong impression. I think I witnessed the birth of a very charming hero who makes you anticipate the story to come," said the American director whose assistant even called Seo Joon the "Asian Ryan Gosling"!
Asked if he's ready to make his Hollywood debut in a new interview, Seo Joon said, "I don’t want to get ahead of myself but since an opportunity like that could come my way as well, I think that I’ll need to always be prepared. If such an opportunity arose, I’d have no reason to refuse. Because opportunity comes to those who are prepared, I’m working on studying foreign languages.”
Looking forward, PSJ. Also, happy 8th anniversary!
The Divine Fury is coming to Philippine cinemas this August 14.
