Actor Park Seo Joon Goes Viral For Taking Photos With Himself Years Later
Park Seo Joon is one of the hottest actors ever.
As he’s been acting for about a decade now, he’s in tons of our favorite K-Dramas…
He’s also in our favorite movies…
Now, while he’s had a successful career in South Korea for years, he’s about to gain an even bigger fanbase with his new role in the upcoming Marvel Studios film The Marvels, set to be released in 2023.
This, of course, wouldn’t be the first time that Park Seo Joon has suddenly gained even more fans. Each time one of his K-Dramas is released, more people discover just how talented he is.
And with each new role, they discover fun facts, trivia, and iconic moments related to the actor. So, now, while he’s as popular as ever, some fans are currently discovering the time that Park Seo Joon did a photoshoot… with himself.
The actor has been endorsing international brands for a while, namely Gong Cha and Laneige. He’s also the exclusive model and spokesperson for the Korean food brand, Bibigo by the No. 1 lifestyle and food company in South Korea, CJ CheilJedang.
According to Bibigo’s website, “The name Bibigo comes from the Korean word to ‘mix,’ combined with ‘go’ for an exciting line of products that are delicious and convenient.” They offer a wide array of products, including Mandu, their signature dish, making Korean food easy and accessible to everyone. You can find their products around the world, even in the United States.
In fact, the Bibigo is the Los Angeles Lakers‘ current partner. They made history together as the Korean brand became not only the first international partner for the team but also the first Korean sponsor for any NBA team.
As Park Seo Joon is essentially the official face of the brand, you can literally see him all over some of their products. He’s not on everything, but he is on most, especially pre-packaged food products. So whether you’re buying seaweed, soup mix, or dumplings, you’re sure to see him!
So, it’s only natural that Park Seo Joon would run into himself in the form of a cardboard cutout while out grocery shopping. Back in 2018, around the time he first began modeling for Bibigo, he uploaded some photos of himself… with himself at a store onto his Instagram account.

The post withstands time as it’s as funny now as it was then when he first posted it. It’s no wonder that the photos keep resurfacing on the internet years after.
Just last year, with the popularity of JTBC‘s Itaewon Class, fans discovered that he is just as much a fan of himself as we are of his! We love to see it.

Now, it’s been three years since Park Seo Joon first shared the photos. Yet, fans are again rediscovering these iconic photos. And, this time, it’s going viral. A K-Drama fan blog posted the photos of Park Seo Joon along with a couple of extra shots in which he posed with himself. This time, with a witty caption.

It is clear that he has a great sense of humor! Remember when he took photos with the coffee truck his buddy BTS‘s V sent him during the filming of Wrong’s Wrong With Secretary Kim??
You know what they say, “Be your own biggest fan!”
