Korean actor Park Seo-joon discussed how he takes care of his mental health and how he has been dealing with fame in an interview with T: The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore.
Seo-joon revealed that he opens up to his close friends whenever he faces difficult problems to keep his mental health in check.
"Sharing with others doesn't necessarily solve my problems. But after I talk to someone, my worries feel lighter. So I open up to my close friends and share the hard times. Although it doesn't solve my problems but I regain my energy to carry on. So I try my best to share them" he said.
On the cover of T Singapore’s June issue, South Korean actor Park Seo Jun (@bn_sj2013), who, beyond being an accomplished performer and the lead of the hit series “Itaewon Class”, emphasises forging close connections with his fans through social media. “In some aspects, sharing my day-to-day life may not be special, but I feel it’s worthwhile because I found a way to return favours to my fans,” he says. .

While he spends a large part of his time in front of cameras, Park Seo Jun (@bn_sj2013) can hardly imagine a life otherwise. “Filming has become a part of my life,” he says. “Rather, I sometimes feel weird and empty when the cameras stop rolling.” In the June issue of T Singapore, the actor opens up about dealing with mental health, his acting roles and the state of the Korean entertainment industry. .

The K-drama star was also asked on how he balances his personal life and his life on the spotlight.
He relayed, "As an actor I try very hard to separate my life from my character. I make sure that my personal life is not affected by my character. The harder I try, the more it works out. I get to have my own personal life and my acting life although I haven't mastered that yet."
Seo-joon added, "Eventually there will come a time where I will get used to all of this, although it's still a bit difficult for now."
