What’s The Difference Between An Idol vs. An Actor? BTS’s V And Park Seo Joon Capture The Contrast In “Jinny’s Kitchen”

It’s all in the way they treat the camera!

While discussing how to cook ramyun, Park Seo Joon comments that he finds it better to add the flavored powder first before the noodles. He mentions how adding the powder “makes the water boil faster” as he continues cooking.

Personally, I add the powder first. I heard it helps make the water boil faster?

V, standing next to Park Seo Joon, listens while looking at his friend and co-worker. Soon, though, V starts looking around—as if he’s searching for something.

Confused, V asks Park Seo Joon where the two of them should be looking while having the conversation—to which the actor answers, “I’m talking to the ramyun.”

V: Who are you talking to? (Which camera are you looking at?)

Park Seo Joon: Me? I’m talking to the ramyun.

V: Oh…

Since the episode airing, this short-but-significant interaction has gone viral among K-Pop and K-Drama fans for capturing the most essential difference between idols and actors: Making eye contact (or not) with the camera.

While actors are, as part of their work, seldom looking directly into the camera during their shoots…
