Gong Yoo, who celebrated his 20th debut anniversary this year, surprised his fans when he opened an Instagram account.
Regarding this, the actor shared, “I started doing Instagram, and I’ve realized that a lot of my overseas fans are leaving lots of comments. I’ve made an Instagram account because of these overseas fans.” He added, “Fans from all over the world form groups to contact me and send me gifts. But yet, I had no way of communicating with them. I have a fan cafe that started years ago, but it’s not easy for overseas fans to join it.”
“I was thinking about it while celebrating my 20th debut anniversary and decided to make an account. I’m just posting my pictures, but fans are loving it,” Gong Yoo said. “It’s not much, but they love it so much. It’s true that I didn’t wish for it (opening social media accounts), but I’ve put that down.”
“I only have a few posts, but I can’t help but cringe when thinking about only posting cool pictures. So I uploaded a picture of the squids that I caught (laughs),” he continued. “Some of the old fans are worried about me doing Instagram. So I told them that my account will be somewhere between serious and whimsical slash wacky.”
Meanwhile, Netflix’s The Silent Sea, starring Gong Yoo, was released in more than 190 countries on Christmas eve.
