Then he shared a habit that helped him in the drama, saying, “I ran lot in the park near my house so that I would be physically fit. While running, there were times I wanted to give up, but I didn’t give in and ran even more, which helped me a lot when I was filming the library scene in ‘All of Us Are Dead.'”
Yoon Chan Young recalled his audition for “All of Us Are Dead,” saying, “I auditioned for ‘All of Us Are Dead’ while I was working really heard to prepare for regular college admission after failing to get in early admission. I wonder if there was a moment when I was as calm as then. I was that into the character. After a while, I heard that I passed the audition, and the next day, I received news that I had been accepted into regular college admission.”
