This week Jennifer won’t be able to post her Perfect Boyfriend due to feeling ill and not knowing who to chose 😮 . So, without further ado, here is this week’s Perfect Boyfriend!

Marianne’s Perfect Boyfriend

Park Sheridan from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Description: A teenage boy, a comic book fan born to an American father and Korean mother. He has golden skin and green eyes. Park LOVES music and reading comic books. He’s considered “weird” amongst his peers just because he’s Asian. He practices tae kwon do and reads comic books on his free time. He’s loyal, even if he sometimes needs a reminder. Park is a romantic, even if he sometimes feels embarrassed to admit it.

Why he should be My Perfect Boyfriend?: 

“Nothing before you counts,” he said. “And I can’t even imagine an after.”
She shook her head. “Don’t.”
“What?”
“Don’t talk about after.”
“I just meant that… I want to be the last person who ever kisses you, too…. That sounds bad, like a death threat or something. What I’m trying to say is, you’re it. This is it for me.” 

“What do you want to show me?”
“Nothing, really. I just want to be alone with you for a minute.”
He pulled her to the back of the driveway, where they were almost completely hidden by a line of trees and the RV and the garage.
“Seriously?” she said. “That was so lame.”
“I know,” he said, turning to her. “Next time, I’ll just say, ‘Eleanor, follow me down this dark alley, I want to kiss you.’”

“I want everyone to meet you. You’re my favorite person of all time.”

“Bono met his wife in high school,” Park says.
“So did Jerry Lee Lewis,” Eleanor answers.
“I’m not kidding,” he says.
“You should be,” she says, “we’re sixteen.”
“What about Romeo and Juliet?”
“Shallow, confused, then dead.”
”I love you,” Park says.
“Wherefore art thou,” Eleanor answers.
“I’m not kidding,” he says.

So, when I read Eleanor & Park, my most favorite aspect of the book was the swoontastic romantic person that was Park. Park isn’t the give you flowers and chocolate sort of guy, but he’s the protect and care for you sort of guy. He’ll defend you, and treat you like the most precious thing in the world. Park has a way of making you feel like the most beautiful person in the world. *dreamy sigh* PLUS he’s a Whovian! THAT’s amazing! I love Park. He’s officially ruined other men for me.

Park is played here by Ricky Kim. I don’t really know who he is, I just googled “half korean” and that’s what popped up. I almost dropped my computer when I saw him. He looks like what I imagine Park looks like!
