One of the most successful Korean actors, Song Joong Ki prefers living in a low-profile manner as he lets all his projects do the talking instead. Aside from the significant recognition of his talent, the 35-year-old actor is also well-known for being warm and considerate to everyone around him.
Actor Park Hoon, who once worked with Joong Ki on Descendants of the Sun, guested on the variety show Problem Child In House and shared a story about Joong Ki that surprised all the hosts. He explained that there were parts of the series filmed in Gangwon province, and they filmed near his home that was located 10 minutes away. As the set was often dusty and dirty, the cast frequently took showers.
Once they arrived, Park Hoon’s mother was so happy and greeted Joong Ki ecstatically as if he were her son. Later, Park Hoon found out the true reason why Joong Ki wanted to go to his house and could not be more touched.
Park Hoon said, “I only realized it after it was over, but it turns out he had purposefully wanted to go to my house to show my mother that we are filming together. He wanted to reassure her that he is there to support me. Afterward, my mother also told me that Joong Ki had sent her fruits, which I didn’t know he did. He is a really caring person.”
Always looking out for his castmates, Joong Ki behaved genuinely warmly again towards the Vincenzo cast during variety show Game Caterers. Intentionally letting the other actors sit in the front and center seats so they can have more screen time, Joong Ki instead quietly positioned himself in the last seat in the left corner. Avoiding the limelight, he also appeared to make mistakes on purpose during the game segment, so others are given more chances to participate.
