The actor surprised many by actually addressing these comments directly and positively, stating that he had intentionally gained weight because he felt it was appropriate for his role in the drama as being a police officer.
Fans were impressed by Yoo Seung-ho's healthy attitude. Yoo Seung-ho has been an actor ever since he was a child, and would seem a ripe target for body image issues. However, his apparently innocent reply suggests that he only interpreted the weight gain statements as a mundane matter of fact rather than something malicious. Meanwhile, "Memorist" is Yoo Seung-ho's first drama since "My Strange Hero". In it, he plays the title role of a police officer that reads minds as he tries to solve murders.
