Park was born on July 11, 1971, but on his birth certificate, he was born in 1973 because his parents registered his birth in 1973. He spent his childhood in Suwon. When Park was in junior high school, he only went to school for two days and then stopped going. He hated everything about school. Because of that, he moved to Inchoen and stayed for 2 years. To support his living expenses, Park worked as a waiter and seller at the market. After finishing his GED (General Equivalency Diploma), he returned to his hometown.

 

Career

Park made his debut in 1993 with Sanulrim theater. He saw an ad looking for new recruits for a theater troupe in a sports newspaper and then applied for it. Luckily, after the audition, Park got accepted right away. However, acting was not his first dream. Park did acting because he was greedy. But, because Park was already a member of theater, he thought he could do much better in acting so he applied for the theater department of Seoul Institute of Art. Unfortunately, he got rejected. Then, Park applied again a year later and got accepted. His first show was the musical Subway Line 1 and theater production Seoul Note. In 2002, Park received praise for the first time with his musical Fire Carmen.

After playing with his theater troupe, Park got cast for the short film Alex in Shinchon and marked it as his debut movie. After that, he only got offers for short films or minor roles. The work that turned his acting career was the medical drama Behind the White Tower. In the drama, Park’s role is Hong Sang Il, one of the doctors in the hospital. This drama got high ratings in South Korea because of its impressive production. To get into character, Park even observed people at a university hospital and studied for free.

To challenge himself, he took a role in the movie The Mimic. This movie marked his first horror movie since debut. Park’s role in the movie is Minho, a husband that is suspicious of the daughter his wife brought. After accepting the script, he became curious about the finished product with sound and visual effects. So, he started to search and study about The Mimic ghost. The other reason Park chose this movie is because he always liked psychological horror movies like Kill Bill.

Not only in movies, Park also acted in many dramas. He became the main character for the first time in the family drama Super Family 2017. In the drama, Park became Na Chun Il, a married man with a daughter in adolescence. Even though the drama got low ratings, Park’s comedic performance left an impression on viewers. His character left an impression because he was not yet married but he played a father character. In the press conference for the drama, he expressed his thoughts.

“I have never been married. I have never been a father so I don’t have much affections and such feelings. To have these feelings, I remember my cute nephew,” said Park.

Park’s favorite actor is Javier Bardem from the movie No Country for Old Men. He was impressed with Javier’s performance and wants to play a strong character like Javier’s character in the movie.
