Gong Yoo In Talks To Star In New Film
Actor Gong Yoo may be making his silver screen comeback in an upcoming film!
On August 3, Gong Yoo’s agency confirmed that he had been offered a role in the new film “Seo Bok” (literal title). A representative stated, “He is currently reviewing the offer with a favorable outlook.”
Should Gong Yoo accept the casting offer, the movie will be his first acting project since the hit tvN drama “Goblin,” which ended in January 2017.
The upcoming film is a modern reinterpretation of the classic legend of Seo Bok, a courtier who served China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huang, the Qin Dynasty ruler famously obsessed with achieving immortality. After setting sail on an impossible quest to find the elixir of life for Qin Shi Huang, Seo Bok is said to have never returned from his journey.
“Seo Bok” will be helmed by Lee Yong Joo, the director behind the popular 2012 film “Architecture 101.”
