In a interview, Kim Bum mentioned that the reason why he accepted the So yi Jeong role in Boys before Flowers because he saw how the Japanese Fans timelessly loved and adored the Taiwanese F4. consist of jerry yan, vic zhou, ken zhu, vanesse wu. even though the drama meteor garden was ages ago. he was hesitant to accept the Yi jeong role because it doesn’t have a lot of filming scenes and he just finished filming EAST OF EDEN.
it happened in October last year a fan meeting in japan there he saw how madly Japanese praised the Taiwanese F4. and suddenly after his encounter with the said story, he realized and said “i want to be an F4 member” and now his So Yi Jeong the womanizer national artist potter.
“yeah good decision kim bum, your perfectly doing a good job potraying the korean version of sojiro! …again in my own opinion…this is the best sojiro..he was given enough acting scenes so far…my gawd, i can’t imagine BOF without ga eul (kim so eun) and yi jeong (kim bum) they’re so perfectly match both good actor, ahhh….this sojiro got class and good acting.=) and one more thing if he went back to japan to promote BOF hey! the japanese fans won’t just be looking at him.. with a question in their mind who the hell is this guy, they will stalked him and go crazy the next time…he visit japan…do you agree with me bloggers?or readers hehe”
