Gong Yoo expressed his feelings about working with Park Bo Gum.
An online press conference for the movie Seobok was held on the morning of October 27 KST. Gong Yoo, Jo Woo Jin, Jang Young Nam and director Lee Yong Joo attended the event.
Seobok tells the story of former agent Ki Heon, who is given his last order to protect mutated human clone Seo Bok, who holds the secret of eternal life. With many people seeking to obtain that secret, the two are caught up in an unexpected situation.
About Seobok being the first Korean film to feature the subject of a cloned human, Director Lee said, “It all started from the fear that finite humans (mortal) have. It’s a concern that everyone has.” He also added, “Human clone is the main subject of our film, but it’s not the only theme. It will be different from other movies that revolve around human clones.”
Gong Yoo introduced his character Ki Heon as “a former intelligence agent with deep trauma who lives alone in the dark in pain.” The actor added, “He is given the last mission of his life and that’s protecting Seo Bok.”
To the question of what it was like working with Park Bo Gum, Gong Yoo said, “The exact opposite of Park Bo Gum’s usual pure and innocent image that we are so familiar with came out for the first time in Seobok.”
“Even when we were acting together, his eyes were so attractive that I joked, ‘You have to play a villain role. Look at your eyes. So mean,’” he added. “I think Park Bo Gum’s transformation will be one of the charms of Seobok.”
Seobok will be released in December.
