Park Seo-joon’s father’s name is Joon, and he works as a government official. His mother’s name is Mrs. Joon, and she is a homemaker. He has two younger brothers.

Details about Park Seo Joon’s family or parents remain undisclosed, as the actor has intentionally kept his personal life, as well as that of his family, private from the media.

His younger brother is married and has a two-year-old daughter. Park Seo Joon has shared that living solo in Seoul created a sense of loneliness, and it was his niece who ignited his yearning for the warmth of a family.

Remarkably, his niece even recognizes and points him out when he appears on television. Could this experience possibly pave the way for him to become a wonderful husband and father in the future?

Park Seo-Joon relationships

There were once rumors circulating about his romantic involvement with actress Baek Jin Hee, his co-star in “Gold, Appear!” In the drama, they portrayed hesitant and immature newlyweds, creating a palpable on-screen chemistry.

Reports suggested that Seo Joon relocated to the actress’s neighborhood to foster a closer connection, and they were even spotted wearing matching jackets. While he confirmed both aspects, he clarified that the move was prompted by parking issues in his old neighborhood, and the jackets were sponsored. This swift clarification put an end to the speculations.

His relationship with SISTAR’s Hyorin also sparked curiosity, especially since they grew close during “Dream High 2.” Adding to the intrigue, Seo Joon’s parents were acquainted with Hyorin.

A few years back, he was spotted assisting Hyorin, who seemed to have injured her leg, prompting many fans to speculate about a potential romantic connection. In an interview, he affectionately referred to her as “my diva” and emphasized that Hyorin is genuinely his only female friend. Such sentiments add a sweet touch to their friendship.
