During the 18 years of his career, the main character of Goblin has never tripped any scandal. Who doesn’t love him, right?
Recently, on October 4th, Gong Yoo appeared in Entertainment Weekly for an interview about his upcoming film Kim Ji Young, Born in ’82. He also had an interview with Jung Yu Mi. It was reported that Gong Yoo cried while reading the scenario for the film and ended up calling his mother. He then responded to this news by saying, “That was a bit distorted. I wasn’t crying while reading. I’m not sure what the reason was, but I think I got a bit emotional. The first thing I thought was my family. I don’t usually call them, but I suddenly did. I was feeling grateful for how they raised me well.”
This will be Gong Yoo and Jung Yu Mi’s third time appearing in the same work together, following the 2011 film Silenced and the 2016 film Train to Busan.
Besides his upcoming project, what is Ahjussi up to? Apparently, our Gong Yoo doesn’t do social media. During a press conference prior to his Taiwan fan meeting back in 2017, the actor was asked why he doesn’t do social media. Gong Yoo then shared his thoughts regarding the reasons, he answered, “First of all, I don’t like taking selcas (selfies). When I go somewhere, I prefer capturing the moment with my eyes rather than taking photos. Why I personally don’t like social media is because you’re intending to show photos to others and that is the most likely to make you create things. The act of showing a created photo and not portraying as it is… is a little uncomfortable for me.” Well… gwenchana, Ahjusshi!
