Choi Jin Hyuk Confesses That He Cried Because Of His Popularity From “Gu Family Book”


Actor Choi Jin Hyuk recently talked about being moved to tears because of the attention and love he has received from his role in drama “Gu Family Book” as Gu Wol Ryung. 

On June 25, Choi Jin Hyuk stopped by as a guest on MBC FM4U’s “This is Park Kyung Lim of 2o’clock Date.” 

When Choi Jin Hyuk was asked, “When was the last time you cried?” he replied, “During the scene where Yoon Seo Hwa was dying, I think I cried a lot then.” 

He went on to say, “For me personally, there have been many times I found myself in tears. There were things that upset me from work or with my parents. There have also been times when I found myself crying alone and other times when I’m at the brink of tears because of something mortifying that I can’t really share on the radio.”

“The last time I was in tears….I think was about a week ago. I held my mother and started to shed tears after we had received close to 60 business calls. This was after I released my “Best Wishes to You” OST from ‘Gu Family Book.’ My mother had also received calls from her friends and it caused her to cry as well. We didn’t even celebrate with alcoholic beverages but instead cried a lot together.”
