Actor Jung Woo Sung spoke his honest thoughts on debuting in Hollywood during an interview for his latest film “Scarlet Innocence.”

When asked whether he has gotten any offers to venture into Hollywood during his 20-year career, Jung Woo Sung replied, “Going abroad should not be an actor’s ultimate goal.”

He added, “Of course, filming foreign projects is up to the individual, and they will have a reason for doing so.” Then he frankly stated, “Hollywood is a white-dominated industry, so unfortunately the main character has to be white. But I want to be a main character.”

He further explained, “I’m not sure why Asian actors must make it their goal to enter Hollywood, if it means that they will end up playing villains and supporting characters.”

Lastly, he commented, “Obviously, advancing to foreign industries isn’t something that can be deemed right or wrong,” emphasizing, “but it’s necessary that there is someone who thinks from this point of view.”
