Park Si Hoo interview by www.vdfly.com
Park SI Hoo debuted in 2005 with “Sassy Girl Choon-Hyang” but his career did not take off until he acted in “Family Honor”, “Prosecutor Princess”, “The Princess’s Man”, etc. and finally reached the pinnacle in what the Chinese call “it takes 10 years to sharpen a sword”. Although PSH who was born in 1978 was rather slow in taking off, he made it up with dramas that fans all love. And he is so considerate to fans that he gains the nickname of “Warm Male”.
Although his career dropped to its nadir last year, he jumpstarted his acting with his first Chinese movie “Scent” and returned to the big screen. In addition, the theme song he sang for the movie “The Sound of Your Coming” was very well received. At the moment, “Scent” is showing in cinemas everywhere. PSH and Chen Ran went on a roadshow to promote the movie, and they arrived at Shanghai on August 18. At the press conference, the two posed intimately for photos, eliciting screams from the audience. Something worth mentioning: on that day several hundred fans were there to support PSH, and among these were many 40- or 50-something “Auntie fans”, testifying to PSH’s charisma.
Park Si Hoo in attendance
To gratify his fans’ wishes, PSH sang the theme song of “Scent” (The Sound of Your Coming) without music, making his fans very excited and enlivening the whole event. After the press conference, PSH graciously agreed to be interviewed by our reporter in Shanghai, smiling so charmingly that our reporter was almost overwhelmed.
Q & A
Q: Did you notice that today many fans who came to support you today are “Auntie fans”. Looks like you have great charisma.
A: Ha!Ha!Ha! ….. (shy) Maybe it’s because I have played all kinds of roles and so can satisfy fans of different ages.
Q: It must be partly because you are very good to your fans which is why they are unwavering in their support. Mr. X [Korean actor] has already proposed to Miss Y [Chinese actress]. Have you considered finding a Chinese girlfriend?
A: Actually if the opportunity arises, I’m perfectly willing to fall in love with a Chinese girl. I prefer a girl of good character – kind, considerate, and encouraging to a man which will make me feel gratified.
Q: In “Scent” you not just played lead but also sang the theme song “The Sound of Your Coming”. Did you feel the pressure?
A: If I tell you there’s no pressure, I would be telling a lie. In order to sing this song well, I practiced Chinese really hard. I hope my fans and moviegoers like it.
Q: You sang very well. If it is released as an album, it will sell very well. Right now on the internet there is a poll going on called “Asia’s 10 Most Handsome”. After two rounds, you are still in contention, and you remain in the Top 20*.
[*ED: Actually PSH is in the Top 10.]
A: Thank you. I feel very honored to be a candidate among so many Asian artists. I thank my fans for their support. I will work hard and come up with more quality works in the future. And of course I hope fans will support my new movie “Scent”.
Right now competition is very fierce on “Asia’s 10 Most Handsome”. After the first two knockout rounds, many handsome stars are eliminated. Those remaining stars are giving us constant surprises. For details, please go to our official website.
