From Chestnut To Pineapple: Park Seo Joon Debuts New Haircut And We're All For It
He shows off a handsome new look after the successful finale of his most recent K-drama hit, 'Itaewon Class'
K-drama fans would be familiar with top Korean actor Park Seo Joon's latest hit 'Itaewon Class', a not-your-regular K-drama show with a plot to beat! It tackles an emotional and inspirational story about revenge, entrepreneurship, and love, and is headlined by Park Seo Joon and Kim Da-mi, the tandem that brings lots of flavor to this Netflix Original Series.
After 16 episodes, it finally ended recently, and while we are going to miss this show, we can always re-watch it, and at the same time, be patient about what's next for our favorite Korean stars! Case in point: Park Seo Joon's exciting new show with top Korean actress Jun Ji-Hyun. We say relax, stay patient, watch other K-dramas for now, and before you know it, the show will be ready for us to devour!
After the Itaewon Class finale, the actor has been active on social media, posting snippets of behind-the-scenes photos from the show.
PSJ's Instagram game is so strong, we wait for his updates on a daily basis. And just a few days ago, he surprised his fans by debuting his newest look, the 'pineapple' cut as he called it.
He has been sporting the 'chestnut' haircut for a while now, especially made for his role as Park Saeroyi in Itaewon Class, and we must say we've grown to love it already. Seo Joon is no stranger to changing hairstyles, and as with many other Korean actors, reinventing one's look seems to keep fans just wanting more!

And while we really find the quirky chestnut look adorable, we have to make way for more PSJ goodness in our lives. He recently blessed our feeds with back to back posts about his new hairstyle, the 'pineapple' haircut, saying the chestnut is out, and the pineapple is in:
He even gives us a glimpse of what it looks like from another angle, in case you were wondering (we know you were!)
