Many know that he is close friends with singer-actor Park Hyung Sik, actor Choi Woo Shik, and BTS member Kim Taehyung. But not known to many, he also hangs out with popular Korean professional footballer Son Heung Min.
In the recent episode of tvN's special documentary, titled Sonsational, Park Seo Jeon and Son Heung Min two talked about their bromance. The documentary special follows the life of Son, who is the captain of Korea's national soccer team and currently plays for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
