On this day, Ryu Jun-yeol said, “I have great teamwork with Kim Woo-bin and Kim Tae-ri. Woo-bin is like a real older brother, and Tae-ri is like a friend to me. Both of them are younger than me, but they don’t act like they do. I tend to act cute and play around with my older brothers and sisters, but I feel like I have to take care of them and set an example.”
Ryu Jun-yeol emphasized that Kim Woo-bin is a reliable younger brother who acts like his older brother, while Kim Tae-ri is a friend who is playful and full of laughter. In particular, he mentioned a moment when he felt special feelings even before he became close to Kim Woo-bin.

In this regard, Ryu Jun-yeol said, “I heard about Woo-bin’s health condition shortly after my debut. Actually, it’s embarrassing to say thing, but I’m not that interested in others,” he confessed, “I don’t follow other’s story, and I don’t really watch the news, but when I heard about Woo-bin’s article, I was so amazed that realized ‘I could feel this feeling too’.”
“I felt very strange when I heard that the actor was sick and in a dangerous state. I was in a bad mood that day. It was amazing and grateful that we met in good health later. I even thought, ‘I’ve never had these moments in my life,'” he said, expressing his deep affection for Kim Woo-bin.
The first part of the movie “Alienoid,” starring Ryu Jun-yeol, will be released on July 20th.
