Yeo Jin Goo Jokes About Box Office Hopes for New Film on “My Little Television”
Kim Gura won the competition last time, and he’s gearing for the win again this week. Since his section is all about movies, he invites young star Yeo Jin Goo as one of his guests to talk about his upcoming film.
Yeo Jin Goo stars in the Korean War film “Western Front” with Seol Kyung Gu. As Kim Gura and his guests chat about the movie and Yeo Jin Goo’s success, Kim Gura asks Yeo Jin Goo how many people he expects will go see it.
“There have been a lot of films lately that have sold over 10 million tickets,” says Yeo Jin Goo, “but I don’t expect that.”
“However, because of the same syllable in my name and Seol Kyung Gu’s, I expect there will be 9.99 million tickets sold,” he jokes. The number nine can be pronounced as “goo” (alternatively written as “gu”) in Korean.
“Western Front” will be hitting theaters on September 24.
