Actor Son Seok Koo shared that he desperately realized his own popularity.
When asked if he realized the popularity, he honestly replied, “I can feel it.” He confessed, “‘My Liberation Notes’ and ‘The Roundup’ came out at the same time, so should I say it’s a ripple effect? I didn’t know I was that popular in the beginning. Because I was filming ‘Big Bet’ overseas back then. While filming ‘My Liberation Notes’, the director told me ‘If you do this, your popularity will increase a lot. Instead, be careful about what you do’, so I thought a lot about that. Let’s be careful about what we do. Let’s not get too excited.”
Yoo Jae Suk said, “At that time, you were so popular that the news of your return from the Philippines was reported exclusively. When articles appeared, people in the ‘My Liberation Notes’ group chat room asked ‘Is a foreign actor visiting Korea?’ Is that right?” Son Seok Koo made everyone laugh by revealing, “Lee El showed me an article. She was like ‘What? Are you a foreign actor?’“
