    7. Itaewon Class (2020)

    If you’ve seen a photo of Park Seo Joon sporting a chestnut hairstyle, it’s for his character in the K-drama Itaewon Class. PSJ brought out his A-game as the endearing, head-patting Park Saeroyi (aka our favorite "sajangnim") who never let anyone stop him from achieving his goals. 

    Itaewon Class brought us one of our favorite barkadas in the K-drama world — the DanBam squad. PSJ, Kim Da Mi, Kim Dong Hee, Lee Joo Young, and Chris Lyon's diverse characters in this show were truly remarkable and gives a new meaning to newfound friendships.

    Bonus: Dream High 2 (2012)

    Park Seo Joon as a K-pop idol? Yes please! The star-studded Dream High 2 (Kang So Ra, Park Ji Yeon, JB, and Jin Woon, plus a loooot of other special guest appearances) is where you can see PSJ dancing and singing, just in case you want to see his other skills. We love a multi-talented actor!
