Perhaps the biggest first obstacle in dating is finding the perfect guy—the so-called diamond in the rough. This is especially true for K-drama fans. Our standards have been raised due to hours of watching our celeb oppas be the perfect boyfriends to their leading ladies.
Park Seo Joon, in particular, is one actor who plays the boyfriend roles so well. From his role as the former taekwondo player-turned-MMA fighter Ko Dong-man in Fight For My Way to the handsome-but-narcissistic CEO Lee Young-joon in What's Wrong with Secretary Kim?, he has proven time and time again that he's the ~king~ of rom-com.
It's really no wonder why everyone thinks he would make the *perfect* boyfriend. Below, we've listed down the top reasons PSJ is the complete package:

He's a gentleman.
One of the things we immediately look for in a guy is if they have gentleman-like qualities. Park Seo Joon, of course, sets the bar high. Check out this clip from tvN of him blocking the sunlight from Park Min Young's face. The actress also revealed another one of his considerate actions: "The left side of my face is better, but he said the left side of his face is better, too. Yet, he lets me stand so that the left side of my face shows. He is very considerate."
