Gong Yoo expressed his gratitude after BLACKPINK’s Lisa spoke about being a huge fan of his.
In the recent episode of Entertainment Weekly Live, Seobok actors Gong Yoo, Jang Young Nam and Cho Woo Jin appeared to promote their upcoming film.
Gong Yoo showed his affection for Park Bo Gum, who starred in the film but is carrying out his military service, saying, “He is a wise friend who adapts well. I hope he will relax a bit there (in the military) since he has been so busy working for a long time. I miss him.” He also added, “The images Park Bo Gum has matched perfectly with images of Seo Bok. (After I was cast first) I asked the director, ‘What’s gonna happen if he says no?’”
Regarding his “boyfriend pics (pictures of handsome guys you wish were your boyfriend),” Gong Yoo said, “I’m just an uncle next door. I’m too old to get attention with ‘boyfriend pics.’”
Soon, the actor was asked about how BLACKPINK’s Lisa chose him as her “dream guy.” About three weeks ago, Lisa excitedly mentioned that she was a huge fan of Gong Yoo and his hit-drama Goblin when she appeared on Knowing Bros. In response, Gong Yoo said, “I saw the article. I was asked for an autograph so I passed one along. BLACKPINK also has a huge fandom around the world as a global K-pop girl group. I sent it with a message of support. I’m grateful that she watched my drama with affection.”
