During his special interview with CNN, Gong Yoo talked about the ups and downs of being a popular actor.
He described some of the downsides of popularity, saying, Actors are exposed to the public a lot. People judge actors based on the way they live, and those images can be reflected in the characters they play. Thats why I try not to reveal my private life.
I sometimes dont think Im suited to be an actor. Im fine in front of the camera but once I go out in public, I get really shy, he explained.
