4 things you don’t know about Gong Yoo

We have seen many sides of actor Gong Yoo over the years – from his roles as a guardian with super powers to a Korean freedom fighter and quietly understated feminist hero – not to mention his role as a certified fashion icon. And yet he is celebrating his 41st birthday on July 10, and we still don’t get enough of him. Here are four things you may not know about Gong Yoo.

1. He almost didn’t participate in Guardian: The Lonely and Great God

Gong Yoo rejected the drama (widely known as Goblin) for five years – unimaginable considering how many actors were desperate to work with Kim after he wrote successful pieces such as Descendants of the Sun and Secret Garden. Eventually Gong saw sense, explaining that at one point he felt scared of acting in dramas.

2. He wasn’t acting in the Train to Busan because he was actually really scared

In an interview with Hankook Ilbo, Gong explained that he gets frightened very easily, and cannot even go in the ghost house in theme parks. While filming the movie Train to Busan, he admitted that he was scared of the zombies – for real. He once shared a story of how he freaked out when the actors playing the zombies didn’t hear the director’s call, and continued attacking him after the cameras stopped rolling. No wonder those scenes felt extra real!

3. He donated 100 million won for coronavirus relief

Gong Yoo donated 100 million Korean won ($84,000) for coronavirus relief measures, joining other K-stars like BTS’ Suga, IU and the director Bong Joon-ho of Parasite . He apparently didn’t do it for recognition as the donation was made under his real name Gong Ji-cheol, his agency commenting that he wished it to be used for medical staff and to support low income and underprivileged people.

4. Gong Yoo’s future plan in 2020

Gong Yoo will appear on screen again very soon, the movie Seo Bok will be in cinemas this year. Which he takes on the role of an ex-agent, with Park Bo-gum playing a human clone.

His next move was choosing “The Sea of Tranquility” as his first Netflix Originals to take part in. But he has suggested he wants to do more than just act. In the show Wook Talk, Gong Yoo showed his ambition to produce more movies later in his career. “I want to discover a good story and start out producing movies from there,” he commented.

Stay tuned and watch the latest korean celebrity news.
