On November 24, Elle magazine released a photo stills with actor Park Bo Gum in Los Angeles on their official homepage.
During their latest interview, he said, “I recently went to the LACMA Art+Film Gala. It was an honor to be there together with my seniors, who were representing Korea. I’d heard that Leonardo DiCaprio was participating to host the event. I saw him, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jaden Smith, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in person. It seems that I am watching a movie to see so many Hollywood actors in front of my eyes.”
Regarding about his own fans and meteoric rise to fame, he showed a little bit of regret. “I was amazed to see so many people gather during the Gyeongbukgung fan signing and in the Philippines during our vacation. Before, I could meet and greet all my fans one by one, but now it’s so difficult remembering all of their names. And my actions sometimes can cause misunderstandings. If I bow on one side, I’ve heard people from the other side asking why I didn’t bow there. Because my sincere thoughts might seem to be distorted, I’ve had a lot of complicated feelings recently.”
Another con of his newfound fame? “I can’t ride the subway anymore,” he said. “But I think I can still ride on the bus, though. It’s a double-edged sword, one is I’m grateful that people recognize and support me, but still there are definite downsides to that.”
