Park Seo-joon on his role in The Marvels
As quoted by SBS Star, Seo-joon said, “I think they checked my vocal range before making the songs I had to sing, so I wouldn’t have trouble singing. During filming those scenes, I tried to focus more on capturing the character’s emotions than on singing well.”
Talking about being a part of the film for a few brief moments, Seo-joon said, “I think Aladna and Prince Yan are the place and the figure that is important for showing the growth of Carol Danvers. Some might think my part in the movie is too short, but I believe it plays a crucial part in the overall narrative of The Marvels.”
Seo-joon made his debut in the MCU as Prince Yan in the film. In the film, Carol Danvers (Bree Larson) and her team pay an emergency visit to Aladna. An unusual past connection between Prince Yan and Carol is revealed. However, his screen time lasts about two to three minutes in the film’s total runtime of 105 minutes.
Hindustan Times review of The Marvels
The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “A whole new world of Aladna, which is like a page out of an Asterix comic book more than Marvel’s, is a breath of fresh air. Firstly, like Wakanda, it’s set in a natural location, devoid of VFX. The landscape of a Corsica-like island lends the place an exotic but relatable appeal. The fact that the first language there is song-and-dance allows Disney in Marvel to take over for a musical intervention. It’ll be a fascinating spin-off to see how Captain Marvel landed on that planet, with Park Seo-joon as Prince Yan.”
