Seo In-guk as Jong-doo in the movie ‘Wolf Hunt’
[아시아경제 이이슬 기자] “If you meet him in person, he is a man of great charm.” Director Kim Hong-sun said about actor Seo In-guk (35). I wondered. What kind of demonic charm are you emphasizing so much? Seo In-guk, who was facing him, was a cute young man who cried after watching the animation ‘Lava’, and said he couldn’t watch entertainment because he was too immersed.
Seo In-guk, who I recently met at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, said, “The unconventional story and characters were attractive.
‘Wolf Hunt’, which was released on the 21st, depicts a hard-boiled survival action in which the most heinous criminals have to be transported from the Pacific Ocean to Korea, in an extreme situation that has never been seen before. Director Kim Hong-sun, who directed ‘The Conspirators’ (2012), ‘The Engineers’ (2014), and ‘The Metamorphosis’ (2019).
Seo In-guk disassembles as Jong-doo, a mad criminal, revealing his intense face. They fight against the police, who must escort criminals, to somehow seize the ship and escape. He recalled, “It was like an animal that didn’t see humans as human beings.” He then compared him to “a character similar to a bear hunting by harassing its prey.” He created a strong image with full body tattoo makeup. He said, “I was discussing this and that design, and I got the look. I liked the uniform pattern on the neck like a snake skin. It took about 3 hours to put on the makeup.”
He said, “I challenged the villain for the first time in 10 years. I’ve received a lot of offers to appear in the role, but Jong-doo was attractive. He came to me like an inherent evil rather than a lust. ‘ he said vigorously. “The director liked the complex Sambaekan. I gained confidence and tried to express Jongdu’s evil with his eyes. Fortunately, the response was good, so I’m proud.”
Seo In-guk also exposed his back to express his intense bell pepper. He said, “I wouldn’t have done it if it was an unnecessary device, but I saw that there was a reason why it was necessary for the play.
Seo In-guk, who usually likes exhilarating action movies, enjoyed acting in ‘Wolf Hunt’. “It was concise and focused on instinctive action,” she said. He further explained, “We don’t make gestures to hit and subdue someone, but instinctively do them to destroy. The cruelty is revealed.” He chose melodrama as his favorite genre after action. “When I see a melodrama, it hurts my heart and I cry. It’s sad. It’s a structure in which conflict exists unconditionally, so it hurts my heart no matter what the ending is. I watch it sometimes when I want to cry. I like movies that express absolute love.”
Seo In-guk, who made his debut as a winner of Mnet’s ‘Superstar K’ in 2019, started acting as an actor in the 2012 drama ‘Reply 1997’. He said, “The more I act, the more greedy I become. I have my own secret recipe and a professional mindset.” He continued, “The number of roles I want to challenge in the future increases. The desire to do better increases.”
“Sometimes I drink alone and ask myself. There are good things, there are bad things. There are parts where I have to give up in order to sing and act, but if I think about it the other way around, I come to the conclusion that the present is happy. I have a personality that hates complicated things. I’m like, ‘It’s better for me to lose money.’ I’m planning to hold a concert and preparing an album. I don’t usually work on a set period, but a song I like is coming out little by little, so maybe I can show it soon. Expected around the beginning of next year. Do it.”
