Stories of the way Park Bo Gum treats reporters who interview him are grabbing a lot of attention on Korea's online communities.
The post that is going viral is titled, 'How Park Bo Gum treats reporters for interviews,' and it describes what the actor does to prepare for the interview. It uses one incident as an example. When Park Bo Gum was traveling to a site for an interview, he said to the reporter, "You must like hot restaurants; I read your article about restaurants in Yeonnam area."
The actor apparently asks for the reporter's name before the interview and looks up the articles the reporter has previously written. He then uses the information to engage in the conversation during the interview.
Apparently he does this for all interviews even though sometimes he meets up with dozens of reporters in a day. Many are praising him saying, "Of course, Park Bo Gum would do this," and complimenting his friendliness even after he has become a top celebrity.
