Gong Yoo Reveals How He Chooses His Acting Projects

Jan 17, 2019

by E. Cha

 

In a recent interview and pictorial for Harper’s Bazaar Korea, Gong Yoo explained what he looks for in a potential acting project.

 

The actor, who will be gracing the cover of the magazine’s February issue, flew out to San Francisco for his shoot. Bathed in the warm glow of California sunshine, the star looked relaxed and charmingly approachable while posing for photos in an array of casual, comfortable looks.

 

Gong Yoo, who most recently appeared in the hit tvN drama “Goblin,” has a busy year ahead of him. He will be starring in both “Kim Ji Young, Born in ’82“—the film adaptation of the best-selling novel—and the upcoming action thriller “Seo Bok” (literal title), which will be helmed by the director behind the popular 2012 film “Architecture 101.”

 

When asked about his decision process for choosing roles, Gong Yoo replied, “I don’t really follow a fixed plan. When I choose a project, my decision strongly reflects my emotions at the time. I don’t want to remain in an obvious, stereotypical place [as an actor], and I want to keep moving.”

 

He continued, “When I choose a project, one of my biggest concerns is whether it’ll be something new and different for me. Because even though I don’t write screenplays and don’t direct [films or dramas], I do creative work and participate in creating a production as a member of the cast.”

 

Both “Kim Ji Young, Born in ’82” and “Seo Bok” are scheduled to begin filming in early 2019.

41 Year Old Gong Yoo was Adorably Scolded During His Photoshoot... After He Did This One Thing

 

 

Gong Yoo made some trouble during his photo shoot.

 

On January 15th, the actor's agency Soop Management uploaded a making film of his photo shoot with clothing brand 'Discovery.' Gong Yoo modeled for the brand's latest collection, posing among the artificial iglos behind him. During the photoshoot, Gong Yoo suddenly got excited and danced along the song played in the studio. Soon, the photographer stopped him from dancing and said, "You have to be serious for this photo shoot."

 

Taken aback, Gong Yoo stopped dancing and posed for the camera. However, he could not stop to feel the rhythm and started to dance again. The only different thing was that he danced with his serious face after got scolded by the photographer. He then said, "I think there is at least one good photo, right?"

 

Not to mention, seeing the 41 years old (Korean age) Gong Yoo got scolded brings laughter to fans. Some of the comments on the web read "He looks so excited while dancing to the song", "Is he really a 41-year-old guy? I think he is a 41-month baby", "I laughed so hard when he suddenly stopped after got scolded by the photographer", and more.

Thank you @2handsintertwined.  I’ve watched this scene and a few others on YouTube many times!  Re Love Alert:  the acting was fine but the script was such a disappointment and unfortunately that was reflected in the ratings and reviews.  Still, see it if you can, to support YEH and CJM, both worthy actors, and very cute together.  

 

You're welcome, sweetie. So you've watched that scene many times! Me too :) So you think the acting in Love Alert was fine but the script was disappointing? Oh. Well, that makes me sad.:bawling: I will try to see Love Alert. And I will always support YEH! :wub:

 

@rubie Ok. SO I'm sorry I mention 3 times. Did you get my PM?

I'm not looking for likes. I just love GY right now. I am thinking of him. And I'm listening to Coffee Prince Sad thing over and over. I'm thinking, "He makes me feel so good inside!" and "I miss him forever and always."

 

So I'm going to share some GY with everyone:

Ok! I wish he winked at me. If he did? I think I would be on the floor! I would faint! "GY please no!!!" I'm sorry that sounds creepy.

You are all like, "She's crazy." and "She needs help." or "She doesn't really like GY." Well, you're wrong! I loooooooooooooooove him!

And I can't say how much because it's so BIG! Hey, he looks so handsome in his white shirt. And his skin looks so beautiful and healthy, and his hair is beautiful. That shirt looks nice with his skin:wub:

And my GY gifs aren't funny! And I'm stalking GY...Just say it! "She wants attention..." Well? You're right! I am trying to be silly everyone. I don't think it's working....Please don't take me seriously. I am always joking. And I love GY so much. I came back. I want to share my love for him!

Annoucement: This is off-topic. I love GY. Please be patient.

 

@rubieOff-topic. I read your message. You are so sweet. I lost all my faith in this website.  I lost all my faith in soompi. I don't have any friends here soompi( @tok-soompi is very kind to me). I don't have any friends on any other threads here. I have no friends here on GY's thread. I always said, "I'm a black GY fan." I always said, "No one likes me." Do you know what I did? I caused trouble in this thread. I said ugly things to so some of the GY fans here. I apologized. They never forgave me. They all left. And I caused trouble in other threads. The mods here on soompi don't like me. I don't think they are fair. You reached out to me in Mr. Sunshine Thread. You made me think, "I can have a friend here on soompi." You made me feel happy. I am so happy I met you in Mr. Sunshine thread. I am happy we shared Mr Sunshine memories there. I am so happy we shared our love. I'm so happy we liked the all the characters in Mr. Sunshine. I will never forget them. I will never forget Eugene. I will never forget Hina. I will never forget Hee Sun's sweet handsome smile. I will never forget. You made all the discussions fun for me. So I think a lot of them are rude. And do I sound like an angry black woman?

 

Me when I see rude GY fans:

Image result for real housewives of atlanta gif

not my gif! credit to owner

"They are so rude."

 

Yes! Call me an angry black woman. Call me other names. Call me a bitter black woman.

Some will say, "She's a dangerous black GY fan." I am his fan too and I am never leaving him.

Well, I'm going to say what I want to say. I'm going to talk about who I want to talk about. GY is a very kind person. And he is a very humble person. He has worked with LBH and other talented actors. I am going to post what I want here. I am going to post him here with LBH. I am going to post him here with Han Ji Min. Why? I think he and Han Ji Min had a lot of chemistry in Age of Shadows. I think she is beautiful. And I think they would make a beautiful couple... I don't know who GY wants as his partner. I like him with a lot of people. I love his scene with LBH in Age of shadows. I like how LBH came into the scene. I like how he has so much class when he acts. I think he is such a professional. I think your eyes are glued to him the entire time. And I like how GY showed respect for him in that scene. I wanted more! I think they match each other well.

 

So I'm going to add:

LBH is one of the first Korean actors I watched. I watched I saw the Devil. So is he the reason I like Korean entertainment? I always ask that. I will always respect him.Yes. But I still respect him as an actor. And I am so happy he returned to dramaland! Do you know how happy I am? Do you know that LBH is a GOD?! He and Song Kang Ho are so talented! I hope GY becomes like them day! LBH really got me as Eugene! I will follow his career. He did movies here the United States.

 

Some ask, "Why is that crazy black GY fan talking about LBH and Mr. Sunshine?!

Me:

Image result for real housewives of atlanta gif

credit not mine not my gif!

 

"Do I still love GY?  YES!!! GY is my number 1"

 

And your reply made me cry. I'm not joking. I'm not being silly. I want to talk to you all the time. I don't just want to talk in PM. I want to share things with you and I want to have fun with you here on soompi. I want to have fun in threads with you. Your reply made me emotional. So please read this. Please please please. I am crying. I have never met anyone as pure and kind as you. Do you think I'm lying? I am telling the truth. You asked, "Where have you been?" That's what you asked me in Mr Sunshine thread...I never want to stop talking to you... You are nicer than a lot of people on this stupid soompi website. @tok-soompi  is not a GY fan. She is always nice. You should ask her to be your friend. But a lot of people on here SUCK. I think they are evil. Everyone in Mr. Sunshine thread is nice than some of the people here in GY's thread. So I don't want to stop talking to you. I need some time to read what you said. And I'm going to think carefully. I want to reply with heart. I need some Kleenex. 

 

Me to you:

Look at his expression. I hope GY can look like this way someday. I can feel all of his emotions. I like the snow.

It's falling around him. He looks like his heart is broken. He looks like he lost something. EUGENE. CHOI

 

 

EDIT: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH  I NEED HIM AND GY TO ACT IN A MOVIE/DRAMA NOW.

Edit: Adding a picture of Han Ji Min...

Image result for ha ji min gif

gif not mine!

Han Ji Min is GY's co star in Age of Shadow. So beautiful. I think she is so sweet. I think she would make GY happy. I think he would love a sweet girl.

 

Edit 3: Mods hate me. So I'm ready. Punish me. I don't care.

Hey GY fans all over the world! I am going to watch Age of Shadows again. Does anyone remember Han Ji Min? She is GY's leading lady in Age of Shadows. She starred in a new drama. I posted her in the spoiler below. Han Ji Min(Familiar Wife, 2018).

Unfortunately, I don't have a GY photo or GIF. He may not be in a drama right now but he's filming a new movie. Soon, there will be promo pics and interviews for the movie. GY fans are lucky as he is one of the rare Korean celebs who is always mentioned in the news despite the less (acting) activities.

 

This clip is the same as @Noor90 has posted at the previous page, the youtube version.

So you said "GY is one of the rare Korean celebs who is always mentioned in the news despite the less acting activities." I don't think this is true because there are lots of younger actors out there. I'm sorry if that sounds mean. I'm glad he found something he likes. I think he's very picky with his projects. I think a lot of GY fans waited a long time for him. Some left. Some liked younger actors. So I think GY is going to compete with younger actors. LBH fans are lucky! LBH is very talented. Why? I think he never loses his acting ability. I think a lot of people can relate to his characters. I think I felt that way. And a lot of people think GY's acting is bad. So I think LBH fans are lucky because they would never say that about LBH. And I think I said, I want LBH to teach him. And I think I said, "Is GY good enough?" I also think LBH's movies will make a lot of money because he can carry his own movie as a lead actor. I ask, "Can GY lead his own movie?" A lot of people don't think he can. And a lot of people didn't like his acting in Train to Busan. A lot of people like Song Kang Ho's acting in Age of Shadows. I am not hating on GY. I am just jealous of LBH fans. Why? I think LBH can act very well. GY needs to practice! I love him. I'm just being honest. I don't want his movies/dramas to fail. LBH's Mr. Sunshine didn't fail. Why? LBH is a gifted talented actor. Does that make sense?

Hahahahahahha. I bet you are all thinking, "Oh poor 2hands. No one here likes her! She's such a crybaby! Why is she acting like she's 5?"

 

I wish I didn't care what GY fans here thought of me, but I do. Why don't they like my posts? 

 

I'm going to stop. I'm just going to get depressed. I'm going to post some GY. If you want to leave. Leave. I'm sick of ya'll skipping my posts. I'm not going to call anyone out. You don't like me? Well, I'm not going anywhere. I'm here for GY. And only him. Do you all have to like me? No. I'm moving on.

 

Me when I come to GY's thread:

Image result for real housewives of atlanta gif rude

 

Ok. Ok. I'm going to be Ok. I should post some GY. Yes. He'll make me happy.

 

GY:

I'm going to post one more. I'm going to leave now. Happy? "Yes! She's gone!"

@rubie @tok-soompi I'm sorry. I think you are both afraid of me. I think my posts here in GY's thread are offensive. I know that both of you aren't his fans. I just wanted you both to know that I'm sorry. Today is a new day in the United States for me. I was feeling depressed. But guess what? I drank coffee this morning. And I used my GY mug. It was a gift for me. I think I feel a little better now...But I'm still thinking I should leave GY's thread and Soompi. I think I should leave GY instagram and twitter. I have said a lot of mean things to GY fans on social media. And I'm a bad person. So what should I do? I think I should let him go. I think it's going to be hard. I'm not asking for you both to pity me. I'm not a victim! Please don't say, "I feel sorry for her." I'm just a bad GY fan. I don't think he needs me. Do you both have any thoughts? Could you post them here?

This is me this morning. I had GY with me :heart::blush::
