Romi Park (朴 璐美 Paku Romi) (born January 22, 1972) is a Japanese actress and seiyū of Korean descent. Her blood type is AB. Born in Edogawa, Tokyo, she graduated from the Tōhō Gakuen College of Drama and Music, and studied in Yonsei University. At the first Seiyū Awards, she won "Best Main Character (female)" for her portrayal of Nana Osaki. Her most well-known roles are usually tough, calm, and mature preteen or teenage boys. Her female roles also fit the "tough/punk lady" archetype. She has a cat named Kogito and a Dachshund named Sarang.


Because the first hanja in her given name, (Ro) doesn't exist as a kanji in most popular Japanese encodings like JIS X 0208, her name is usually written differently by Japanese internet users to avoid using the gaiji 璐, which may not display properly on many computers and is cumbersome to input. For example, the Japanese language Wikipedia entry writes her name as 朴ロ美. (See Japanese language and computers for more on character encoding problems.)
