Yeo Jin Goo’s surprise voice appearance in tvN’s new weekend drama Start-Up draws attention.
In the first episode of Start-up, which aired on Oct. 17, AI speaker Jang Young Sil from Jiphyeonjeon Tech, which Kim Sun Ho’s company was considering investing in, appeared.
According to the drama’s official website, Jang Young Sil never answers questions properly, but like how even the broken clock is sometimes pointing at the right time, it gives one or two smart answers.
After the broadcast, speculation continued that the male actor’s voice for Jang Young Sil was similar to Yoo Jin Goo’s voice. In particular, the opinion gained more support as director Oh Choong Hwan, who is in charge of directing Start-Up, previously worked with Yeo Jin Goo in Hotel Del Luna.
In response, an official of the production team confirmed, “Yeo Jin Goo is the one who played Al speaker Jang Young Sil’s voice.” Since an AI speaker is officially introduced on the website, attention is being paid to when Yeo Jin Goo will appear as a voice next.
Meanwhile, Start-Up is a youth romance drama that depicts the “Start” and “Up” (grow up) of young people who have entered the world of start-up.
