Ryu Seung-ryong expressed his satisfaction with acting alongside Jo In-sung and Go Yoon-jung in the series ‘Moving’
Ryu Seung-ryong said, “I haven’t been able to watch Moving in real time. Many people seem to be waiting to binge-watch it. I’m receiving a lot of DMs on Instagram, and it’s doing better than I imagined. When I walk by, many people greet me with affection.”
‘Moving’ depicts the stories of children living in the present while hiding their superpowers and parents who have hidden painful secrets about their past. Ryu Seung-ryong plays Jang Joo-won, a character with the ability to regenerate infinitely no matter what injuries he sustains. Due to this ability, he was once called a monster and wandered through a dark past. However, he later became a top-secret agent for the National Intelligence Service. The story also portrays his past, including losing his first love Ji-hee (played by Kwak Sun-young) and raising his daughter Hee-soo (played by Go Yoon-jung) on his own.
Ryu Seung-ryong is known to have gifted a bouquet of flowers to Go Yoon-jung, who plays his daughter, before the shoot. He commented, “We had a formal meeting, and we were in the COVID-19 era, so we ate lunch boxes. I gave her flowers in colors that suit her. It was meant as a gesture to take care of her because we have a special relationship in the series.”
About Go Yoon-jung, he said, “She has a bright energy. Thanks to Go Yoon-jung’s portrayal of Hee-soo, she became the driving force behind my heart, a motivation that could replace Ji-hee.”
He continued, “Working with good actors was great, and I’m looking forward to her future. Like a temperature rising on a thermometer, she’s an actress who can maintain it, and I have high expectations.”
The chemistry between Ryu Seung-ryong and Jo In-sung, who play former and current colleagues at the National Intelligence Service, also contributed to the popularity of ‘Moving’.
Ryu Seung-ryong remarked, “It’s a serious drama. If you overdo the comedic parts, it’s challenging.” He praised Jo In-sung, “Jo In-sung is excellent at acting cool. Strangely, just hearing his breath made me smile, so there were many NG (outtakes).”
He continued, “Just looking at him visually is fun. Jo In-sung understands everything when you say it once.”
In the final episode of ‘Moving,’ a final showdown between super-powered individuals from the National Intelligence Service and North Korean agents took place.
Ryu Seung-ryong said, “I was worried it might end sadly, but I’m grateful that it ended happily. I watched the last three episodes in the theater and thought, ‘It’s fortunate.’ I clapped like a seal, not because of what I did, but because I was so grateful to the production team.”
