Actor Anupam Tripathi, who is well-known as Ali in “Squid Game,” tells how he feels about rising to become a world syndrome on “Radio Star.” Anupam revealed from the behind-the-scenes story of his unexpected method acting in order to be immersed in the role of Ali Abdul to his SNS followers, which has increased about 1,390 times.
MBC’s high-quality talk show Radio Star (planned by Kang Young-sun/Director Kang Sung-ah), which is scheduled to air on December 1st, will be a special episode with the theme “Hang in there and you can do it” with Park So-hyun, Hong Hyun-hee, Noze and Anupam as guests.
Anupam is an actor who started studying acting at the Korea National University of Arts and has appeared in big productions such as “Ode to My Father,” “Descendants of the Sun,” and “Hospital Playlist.” Recently, he has become a world star by playing the role of No. 199 Ali Abdul in Netflix’s successful drama “Squid Game,” which caused a global syndrome.
Anupam said, “I remember vividly the day when the Squid Game was first released,” adding, “The number of my SNS followers before its release was 3,000, but now it has increased to 4.17 million.” At this time, Hong Hyun-hee burst into laughter after hearing about the unexpected interest of global fans toward Anupam.
Anupam recalled portraying Ali Abdul in “Squid Game” and tells the behind-the-scenes story of his unexpected method acting. The actor surprised everyone with his dedication who are willing to sacrifice his body, saying, “I wanted to know Ali Abdul’s pain.”
Anupam, who has been living in Korea for 11 years, told everyone about his difficulty adapting to life in Korea. While working as an Indian theater actor, Anupam decided to go to Korea to study, saying, “I wanted to learn acting properly.” Recalling that the process of learning Korean and learning culture was not easy, he made people surprised by confessing, “There were times I had to live through a day with strawberry milk and bread.”
Anupam overcame the difficulties of living in another country with his “inner power” and excitement. Along with many reports calling Anupam a “super insider” who was really famous at the Korea National University of Arts, a story about his special relationship with college senior Park So-dam will also be revealed, raising the viewers’ curiosity. In addition, Anupam, who has perfectly adapted to life in Korea, suddenly confessed, “I have a Korean name. I’m Seokgwan-dong Ahn”, making many people question the story behind his name.
Above all, “Radio Star” is drawing keen attention with the appearance of people who heated up 2021, ‘Squid Game’ actor Anupam and ‘Street Woman Fighter” NOZE. The two rising stars are expected to present a dance collaboration to the OST of ‘Squid Game’ and show scenes that can only be seen on “Radio Star”.
Anupam’s method acting in ‘Squid Game’ can be found on “Radio Star”, which will be aired at 10:30 P.M on Wednesday, December 1st.
