Yoo Seung-ho’s Personal Life and Ideal Type


Yoo Seung-ho has already served his two-year mandatory military service from March 2013 to December 4, 2014. He worked as a regular soldier who reportedly trained new recruits.

Yoo Seung-ho was born and raised in Incheon, and he is the youngest of two siblings. He graduated from Baekshin High School in February 2012 but did not pursue college in order to focus on acting. Though he has received several offers for special admissions into universities, he rejected them all. But, he said he can go to college when he feels like it in the future.

“I didn’t go to college because I didn’t want to study. I said the same thing at an interview at the time, but the article excluded the part about me saying I didn’t want to study and made my image better than I had intended to make it,” he explained. “In secondary school, I studied because my parents told me to, but I honestly didn’t like studying. I still feel that way, so I have no thoughts of going to college. Maybe, I’ll go if I feel like studying some day.”

When it comes to his dating life, he doesn’t have any scandals since his childhood career in 2000. But, the South Korean actor revealed that he already dated before.

“To be honest, I’ve dated a few times before. I’ve never said this in the past, but I think it’s better to say it now than to hide it and lie about it,” Yoo Seung-ho said during one of his interviews.

Yoo Seung-ho also revealed that he is more careful and afraid about dating or talking about it. For him, dating is such a difficult topic to discuss.

But, at the V Live with Kim So-hyun, he said that he is attracted to her. But, he also added, “I just like people I’m attracted to. Instead of someone perfect, I’m more attracted to people with a few flaws. I have an upright image.”
