BTOB’s Yook Sungjae Talks Marriage, Children, and How He Was Cast in “Who Are You: School 2015”
BTOB member Yook Sungjae will be opening up about his plans for marriage, having children, as well as the interesting story behind his casting in the drama “Who Are You: School 2015” on the next episode of KBS’ quiz show “1 vs. 100.”
During the recent recording for “1 vs. 100,” which will be airing on July 7, Sungjae shared, “My dream, ever since I was younger, was to marry at 25 years old. I also wanted to have children early so that I could become a friend-like dad to my kids.”
He continued, “These days, my thoughts have been changing. I think I said those things when I was younger without really knowing any better.
The BTOB member also told the backstory behind his casting audition for his first-ever lead role in the drama “Who Are You: School 2015.”
Sungjae explained, “During my audition, the director tried to check my personality, so he kept saying, ‘What’s BTOB? I’ve never even heard of it.’ In that moment, my ears turned red and I told him, ‘We’re working as hard as we can, isn’t it a bit much [to say that]?’”
As soon as he said that to the director, he thought, “It’s going to be hard for me to step into the drama world now.” However, he revealed that the director decided to cast him after seeing him lose his temper, as it was very fitting for his role as Gong Tae Kwang.
This episode of “1 vs. 100” featuring Sungjae is expected to air on July 7 at 8:55 p.m. (KST).
