This year has been filled with Korean celebrities making heartbreaking confessions, and Korean actors are no exception.
Here are 3 Korean actors who made heartbreaking confessions this year.
- Song Joong Ki
For the film Space Sweepers, Song Joong Ki played the character Kim Tae Ho.
During a press conference, Song Joong Ki revealed that he viewed Kim Tae Ho as someone who had given up on life. He then shared that he felt very similar to Kim Tae Ho.
Song Joong Ki concluded by sharing that Kim Tae Ho didn’t stay this way forever, as he met a crew that helps him in his life.
“After Tae Ho goes through many ups and downs and gives up on life, he meets a crew that helps him find meaning in life, gain courage, and feel a little more motivated. In that sense, the crew helped him a lot.”— Song Joong Ki.
- Yeo Jin Goo
In an interview with GQ Korea, actor Yeo Jin Goo spoke about how the K-Dramas The Crowned Clown and Hotel Del Luna helped him become a better actor.
Before acting in The Crowned Clown and Hotel Del Luna, Yeo Jin Goo was in a slump and wasn’t satisfied with his acting. Due to this, he went to receive help from his director and seniors. Thankfully, Yeo Jin Goo was able to get out of the slump after acting in these two K-Dramas.
“Before, I was in a slump that wasn’t quite a slump. I listened and received praise while continuing to work, but I wasn’t satisfied with myself because I had no choice but to get help from the director and seniors. But with Hotel Del Luna and The Crowned Clown, I did my own analysis into the scene, made more opinions, and did what I prepared. It was my first time acting like that, and I learned a lot. It made me excited to start work on the next project.”— Yeo Jin Goo
- Choi Ye Bin
In the K-Drama Penthouse, actress Choi Ye Bin played a young bully who suffers painful family circumstances that push her over the edge. Choi Ye Bin revealed that playing a bully wasn’t easy for her.
Choi Ye Bin also shared that her back muscles were in a lot of pain when she was filming, so she’s had to do a lot of back stretching recently.
“Since Eun Byeol was a character who was always tense, my upper back muscles would be in pain after always being up. I do a lot of back stretching these days.”— Choi Ye Bin.
