The actor then continued, “From then on, I removed my age from my profile altogether. They kept asking me about my age, so I asked, ‘How old do you think I look?’, and answered positively when they thought I was born in the 70s. In the end, I ended up getting casted for that project, a movie called ‘My Brother is Back’ (literal translation). 

In addition, Yoon Kyung Ho confessed that after the audition, he admitted to the production team that he lied about his age.

According to the actor, at that time, the production team said, “I thought you were older. But that’s good. If you said your real age, I think we would have prejudice. Continue to lie about your age in the future.”

Yoon Kyung Ho then revealed that he not only lied to the production team, but also to his co-stars about his age, saying, “At the time, I worked with actor Lee Ah Hyun. Senior Ah Hyun doesn’t know about my age yet, and I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize”.
