Park BoGum is one of the few actors who has succeeded in his career in the mid-20s. What another status the mid-20s can have aside from "actor"? Probably, "university student".
Park BoGum is in his final years from graduating Musical department in MyungJi College. For his graduation project, he took a role as a music director and remade the musical "Hair Spray" with his colleagues. Though he had a busy schedule, he didn't give up on his studies and was known to be participating in classes and activities as much as he could.
The stage must have meant a great deal to him, just like any other graduates, since it represents his studies and works for those past years. He wrote a short comment in the pamphlet of the musical, "Though I am not qualified as a great music director, the cheers and helping hands from professors and colleagues were a great help. Also the pressure I get from the project pushed my limits higher. This became one of the great fertilizer to my growth. I will always treasure the time we spent together preparing for the musical."
After the news about him being the director spread, there were countless calls to make the reservation for the musical.
