Gong Yoo Names The Role Of His Lifetime
It was recently reported that Gong Yoo had cried while reading the scenario for the film and ended up calling his mother. Gong Yoo responded to this in the interview with “Entertainment Weekly” 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 of was my family. I don’t usually call them, but I did suddenly. I was feeling grateful over how they raised me well.”
This is Jung Yu Mi and Gong Yoo’s third time appearing in the same work together, following the 2011 film “Silenced” and 2016 film “Train to Busan.”
When this was brought up to the two actors, Jung Yu Mi laughed and said, “It could be the last,” which surprised Gong Yoo. “This is the first time I’m hearing about this!” he said as Jung Yu Mi laughed before saying, “I was joking!”
Gong Yoo was also asked to name “the role of his lifetime.”
“That’s really difficult,” he said. “But the first thing I thought of when I heard ‘role of my lifetime’ is ‘Goblin.’ It was a drama that allowed me to show a lot of things. As an actor, I was able to show various things such as seriousness, affection, sentimental sadness, and comedy.” He joked, “Also, I was a god. I felt like the world belonged to me.”
