Seo In-guk, “In the past 13 years, I cried many times and suffered a lot of burnout..” 

Seo In-guk (35), the main character of the movie “Project Wolf Hunting”, expressed his thoughts on the 13th anniversary of his debut.

Actor Seo In-guk had an interview with MyDaily at a cafe in Palpan-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 20th ahead of the release of the new movie “Project Wolf Hunting”.

“Project Wolf Hunting” is a hard-boiled survival game (not available for teenagers) action movie. The movie is about a brutal rebellion that begins inside a huge moving prison on the sea that transports heinous criminals from the Pacific Ocean to Korea and depicts an extreme survival game that has never been seen before. Director Kim Hong-sun, who became the master of genre films through “Contractors” (2012), “Technicians” (2014), and “Transformation” (2019), took the megaphone.

In particular, Seo In-guk takes on the role of Park Jong-doo, the first villain role in his career.  He has written a new character for his life by perfectly portraying the cruel villain with crazy eyes. Park Jong-doo is a first-degree murder criminal who reigns as an object of fear for even criminals, as if only ‘evil’ exists in his DNA.

Seo In-guk debuted in the entertainment industry after winning Mnet’s reality show “Superstar K Season 1” in 2009. After leaving a huge impression on the viewers as an actor through his performance in the 2012 drama “Reply 1997”, he has been well-loved by the public as an all-rounder entertainer.

When asked about his feelings on his 13th debut anniversary, Seo In-guk confessed, “The debut is one of the biggest things in my life, so in some way, it seems to be a short time, but in another way, it also feels long to me. I’ve had lots of worries and made many efforts, there were definitely hardships and times when I cried”.

He then honestly shared, “I think the 13 years that I’ve been through is a part of my way to complete myself. That’s what made me who I am now. So I’m really looking forward to how I will turn out to be in the next 10 years. Looking back on it, there are things that I’m proud of and I hope I can continue doing that. Sometimes when I drank alone, I suddenly wondered, ‘Will I ever get tired of this job?’. Of course, I did feel burned out and wanted to give up on everything many times. Sometimes I became lazy, but sometimes I felt like investing everything in my work and working passionately enough to throw away all of my personal things. Whenever I want to let go of something I love, I try to overcome it well and go on expressing my feelings in my next work or music.”

In addition, Seo In-guk said, “What I regret is that I’ve never traveled alone. I don’t often go out of my house. But every time people look at me, they think I’m an active person. I did the MBTI test twice and got INTP both times. Everyone was surprised when I told them about that. I want to travel alone and recharge myself then develop a more positive mind. I hope I can turn myself in a good direction quickly even when I’m having unstable emotions.”

He smiled and added, “What I’ve been doing so well is that I’ve lived a hard-working life all this time. Looking at the list I’ve left so far, I feel proud that I have lived a good life.”
