South Korean actor Park Hae-jin has opened up about completing ten years in the television industry. The 32-year-old actor is best known for his roles in My Love from the Star, Bad Guys and Cheese in the Trap.

During an interview with Today Online, Hae-jin talked about his acting career. He said: "It hasn't been smooth sailing over the 10 years. There was this time when I didn't work for some time after 2009. I had a hard time going through what I didn't want to go through, but now that I look back, I think the hardships actually helped me grow as an actor. An actor has to express various things; and personal hardships, I think, helps (in my craft)."

Hae-jin also talked on being considered as role model by his beloved fans. He said: "It would be something I would be very grateful about. I do not know in which aspect, but because I live a rather exposed life, I try not to do something that I think would be a harmful."

The Doctor Stranger star spilled details about his personal life and justified fans' curiosity to know about celebrities lives. He said: "I think that is the trend partly because there are many TV programs that feature the personal aspects of celebrities. But actually, there isn't anything special about my personal life. (laughs) Like anyone who works, I go home tired so I eat and fall sleep. There is nothing much to tell or show.. (laughs) I live with my nephews – a six-year-old and a three-year-old – so I play with them."
