In a recent story, The Guardian revealed an exclusive interview with Park Seo Joon. They mentioned the time when the “Itaewon Class” actor found out that the Marvel Cinematic Universe wanted to get in touch with him.

Park said, “When I first heard that the Marvel Cinematic Universe wanted to speak with me, I couldn’t believe it. I actually couldn’t believe it.”

As expected though, he didn’t spill specific details about the upcoming project. “I’m just trying to be careful with Marvel-related questions,” he said as MCU actors are sworn to secrecy.

“I’m not someone who has a fear of challenges, but whether I am filming in South Korea or abroad, everything is a challenge for me. So, I did feel some nerves at first,” he admitted. “But everyone was so helpful and welcoming that I was able to find my feet really quickly.”


PSJ is reportedly in Hungary as he resumes filming for an upcoming movie with IU. He previously tested positive for COVID-19 but has now fully recovered.
