Actress Park Bo-young showed respect for office workers during a press briefing Wednesday for her upcoming movie “You call it passion,” featuring the story of a struggling rookie reporter.


The 25-year-old actress said, “I experienced the daily lives of office employees for three months (during the film shoot) although it is just part of their lives.”

“It was tough day by day and I thought they are so admirable,” she added.

Regarding the word “passion,” Park said, “The word ‘passion’ doesn’t sound positive for the youth today because of so-called ‘passion pay’ here. It sounds rather negative.”

“Passion pay” is a satirical term used in South Korea where many employers exploit young people as cheap labor on a short-term basis, saying they should be passionate enough to put up with poor treatment.

“I hope young people can view the term in a more positive way through this movie,” she added.

The movie “You call it passion” featuring the story of a rookie entertainment reporter who is struggling with her boss, is set to hit theaters on Nov.25.
