Actor Gong Yoo revealed his concern after the drama “Goblin”
On September 29th, the YouTube channel “DdeunDdeun” uploaded a new video titled “Chuseok Holiday is Just An Excuse” featuring Yoo Jae-suk, Gong Yoo, Jo Se-ho, and Yang Se-chan.
When asked, “Do you even feel anxious?”, Gong Yoo said, “Of course. I didn’t know how to deal with it. It happened once in my 20s and once in my 30s”.
The actor continued, “Such concerns cannot be explained clearly like saying ‘This is what makes me worried’. For example, the huge success of ‘Goblin’. Even when the work did well, I didn’t feel happy. It’s a good thing that the drama achieved good results, but apart from that, there was a time when I was out of my mind and I kept feeling empty”.
Gong Yoo shared, “It’s not that I felt tired when things went well. I just did not enjoy the spotlight or happiness of the successful work at the time it was popular. But it’s hard to tell this story openly. It was the time when everyone was enjoying such great happiness, so I was afraid that it would sound extravagant and unreasonable if I said I felt weird”, adding “After going through ups and downs, the way I looked at the world around me also changed. I was so nosy when I thought that I didn’t want to hurt anyone”.
