Yoo Yeon Seok’s 20th anniversary of debut. It’s already been 20 years since our debut. Today’s actor Yoo Yeon-Seok feels relaxed and stable. Yoo Yeon-Seok, who is meeting with viewers through JTBC’s ‘The Interest of Love‘, recently showed off a face that has both boyish and adult looks coexisting through a photo shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.
In the interview that followed, Yoo Yeon-Seok said about ‘The Interest of Love’, “I want you to feel a sense of empathy more than anything else when you see the acting of an actor like me. But this time, I just wanted to be good at what I’m good at. It’s not a transformation or a challenge, but I focused on the details like delicate eyes, giving and receiving, and coy eyes, so I think the viewers feel comfortable.”
As for the reason for choosing an authentic melodrama, “I had a vague wish that ‘the last work in my 30s would be a melodrama. It’s not a love that can be or face adversity and hardship, but it’s so realistic that it hurts my heart.”
This is Yoo Yeon-Seok, who debuted in 2003 with ‘Old Boy’ and celebrated his 20th anniversary this year. When asked about constants and variables in acting, Yoo Yeon-Seok said, “Constant is my wish to act for a long time until I get old, and it seems that every work has a variable. A new character, new platform, and new genre every time… Coronavirus is also a big variable. And thanks to that, the situation in the market, where OTT is more familiar than movie theatres, was also a new variable.”
Also, “At the beginning of my debut, I acted with the mindset of ‘Let’s endure for 10 years’, and then in my 10th year, I received a lot of love with ‘Reply 1994’, so how lucky I am. After that, another 10 years passed and the 20th anniversary. There were countless variables. I am just grateful that the people of Edo remind me of the actor I am and that I can continue to act. I want to continue to act as I do now.”
