Today we’ll take a look at what makes him such an endearing boy crush.
If you’re new to Park SeoHam, here is some basic information about him. He was born on October 28, 1993. You may recognize him by the names SeungJun or GyeongBok; this is because he has changed his name a couple of times before. He was born as Park GyeongBok but was teased in school because his name sounded like the famous Korean monument Gyeongbokgung Palace. So, he changed his name to Park SeungJun when he was eight years old. His name changed to Park SeoHam in 2018.
As an idol, he was best known for being the tallest member of KNK at 192cm (at the time). He is currently said to be 193cm tall, although he has said himself that his height varies between 189cm and 193cm each time he checks his height.
He is a former BIGHIT Entertainment trainee and trained with the members of BTS. He later moved on to become a JYP Entertainment trainee where he trained as an actor.
Park SeoHam debuted with KNK in 2016. He was the main rapper and a sub-vocalist in the group. Park SeoHam’s rap has a unique low-pitched tone that appeals to anyone who is listening.

When the director of the drama was asked why she cast him for the role, she said that one of the staff members showed her his Instagram and she felt like she could hear Jang JaeYoung’s voice coming from his photo.
