Park Seo Joon's role in The Marvels has not been confirmed yet, but the actor already made a record upon joining the team.
When Marvel Studios announced Phase 4 of Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans expected that something would continue Larson's 2019 film Captain Marvel. However, the company offered more to fans by releasing the miniseries Ms. Marvel on Disney+ and planning The Marvels.
The hype intensified when reports about Itaewon Class actor Park Seo Joon joining the team emerged. At that time, his agency, Awesome Entertainment, refused to give further details about where he would be appearing, his character, or his filming schedule.
But after leaving the country, fans confirmed that the actor is indeed part of the MCU film.

Park Seo Joon Wraps Up The Marvels' Filming
Two months after leaving the country, Park Seo Joon returned home on November 2 and was spotted at the Incheon International Airport.
Even after his return, the actor nor his agency has revealed more information about his role. However, fans created a list of the potential roles he probably got in the franchise.
Some suggested that he potentially got Amadeus Cho's role. The character is a well-known Korean superhero in Marvel Comics who acquired Bruce Banner's powers. However, he is too young for the role, and the character is not connected with Captain Marvel in any way.
Meanwhile, another assumption involved Noh-Varr or Marvel Boy. He is a soldier in the Kree Empire who lost his parents and girlfriend after Dr. Midas attacked the Earth.
These should still be taken with a grain of salt. But regardless of Park Seon Joon's role, he just set a new record by joining the cast members.

Park Seo Joon set a new record when he accepted the offer from Marvel Studios.
After officially joining the flick, he became the third Korean to appear in a Marvel Studios flick following Claudia Kim in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ma Dong-Seok in The Eternals.
He also established his empire locally by leading award-winning K-dramas, including She Was Pretty, Itaewon Class, and What's Wrong With Secretary Kim, among others. The actor also played a minor role in the highly acclaimed film Parasite.
