Hey friends! Come hang out at Mokdong Elementary School’s 4th Grade Homeroom 5!

62. “[Emoticon]”
63. “This is so cute… T_T”
64. “OMG, this is from my elementary school! LOL. I used to be friends with Bo Gum back then… He was such a nice kid. Haha.”

This is, however, not the first time Park Bo Gum’s past life has resurfaced and won hearts. While his supposed elementary school friend vouched for his niceness, his friend from middle school had previously revealed that the actor had stood up to school bullies for him. The two remained friends even in High School, and the friend thanked Park Bo Gum for his kindness through an online post.

Just as how you were the only student who didn’t bully me, even if the whole world is against you, I will always be on your side. I can’t forget the time you shared your umbrella with me at the Central Plaza when it rained.

It looks like fourth-grader Park Bo Gum summed up his future personality pretty accurately. He is indeed a “handsome man” and a “good boy” inside and outside of his home equally.
