Popular young actor Yeo Jin Goo referred to himself as a ‘lucky child,’ emphasizing that he is very satisfied with his acting career.
Ahead of the release of his new movie “The Western Front,” Yeo Jin Goo gave an interview with news outlet Star News.
Starting as a child actor and having grown into a high school senior now, Yeo Jin Goo said, “I think I’m very lucky. I’ve done work that I love since I was young, and I’m so happy because I am doing something I love, and I’m getting attention and love for it.”
The young and mature actor then said, “When I see my friends, a lot of them can’t do what they want to do for a number of reasons. I think I have a lot of luck. I’ve never regretted acting from a young age.”
Yeo Jin Goo said, “I don’t lack anything huge compared to my friends at school. I go on field trips and although I can’t attend school all the time, my friends are usually the ones who are jealous of me.” However, he added, “But I do have some regrets about my teens as opposed to my school experience. This will be the last year that I will be able to build memories with my friends during my teen years.”
The talented actor will be applying to university and plans on studying theatre and film. He described the typical experience for a university applicant, saying, “I was taking a headshot for my application and I was so nervous. I thought I was used to being in front of the camera, but my face still stiffened up. I’ll wish upon the Chuseok full moon that I will get into university. I think all high school seniors will be making the same wish.”
Meanwhile, Yeo Jin Goo’s “The Western Front” is a human drama between South and North Korean soldiers who encounter each other due to a secret document three days before the end of the Korean War.
