Having recently been invited to the Toronto International Film Festival, Yoo Ah In spoke in the interview about his acting process for his role as cult leader Jung Jin Soo in the upcoming Netflix drama series “Hellbound.” “I wondered how making such a serious, intense, and shocking story could be so pleasant,” he commented.
About working with director Yeon Sang Ho, known for directing the film “Train to Busan,” Yoo Ah In said, “He never lost his sense of humor. It was really enjoyable to watch how he strove towards his own intended result and the message of the project.” He added that acting in the role of Jung Jin Soo was a process of figuring out the absolute solitude and loneliness of the character.
