Pop star Park Hyung-sik has garnered good notices as an actor after he played an attractive, rich young man in a recently ended melodrama.
Park debuted with boy band ZE:A in 2010 and started his acting career in 2012. At first he did not make much of an impact, but his latest soap seems to have established him as a real actor.
Park sets his own goals and strives to achieve them, but he says he is not a competitive person. Because he started off as a singer, he understands he has a long way to go as an actor. "Rather than being jealous of others' success, I want to focus on pursuing my own interests and being myself," he adds.
He is usually very optimistic but recently found himself anxious at times. "I felt stressed as I thought I should have done better, and I started to worry if I failed to meet people's expectation," he recalls. "I was getting greedier."
Now more confident in his acting abilities, Park hopes to appear in another romantic comedy as he is drawn to love stories seasoned with humor. "I want to keep performing as both singer and actor, but I know it's a tall order," he says.
