Published on | Source
Yoo Seung-ho is a star but his true identity is hidden behind a veil. It's because he's only been in dramas and movies. Before and even after he joined the army, he's refused to take interviews and said, "I will do them only when I can clearly speak my mind".
The 'mystery' behind Yoo Seung-ho only led to more curiosity and that was his plan. Now, Yoo Seung-ho is one of the leading actors in his 20s and he finally accepted an interview. He's currently looking forward to the release of the movie "Seondal: The Man Who Sells the River".
Yoo Seung-ho is handsome. He is like a sculpture. He was also struggling to speak honestly to the questions being asked to him. First, we asked if he realized he was a star without 'anti-fans'.
He hesitated before he said, "I get tired of my looks. I see my flaws. I don't think I am that great looking".
Even a few years back, he said he didn't know if he was that handsome. It was preposterous. Yoo Seung-ho said, "I understand why Won Bin said what he did. We don't look at ourselves in the mirror and say, 'This will do. I'm perfect' so you can believe me".
Curiosity about Yoo Seung-ho isn't just about his acting or his work. People want to know what he likes to do, if he's seeing anybody and things like that.
Why doesn't he have SNS?
"I did think about it but I don't want to tell the world about my private life".
When did he last have a girlfriend?
"I don't think I've actually had a proper one. I've asked for blind dates but I never got anything. If I have a girlfriend, I'd like to go to the sea".
We asked about his ideal type. Yoo Seung-ho answered right away.
"She must not lie, she has to be respectful to her elders and I would like her to be appealing more than pretty. I like short hair compared to long hair and I'm not very tall so she should be about 165 centimeters. I like fair skin and I like pants of women not skirts".
Yoo Seung-ho is known for his righteous image. He debuted in 2002 when he was 9 years old and until now, he hasn't had any ups and downs in his life. However, he doesn't think so.
"I've had plenty of good times and hardships. The problems I had when I was young were minor; the things I couldn't do while my friends could like having girlfriends and going on school trips".
"Right before I enlisted, I had so many concerns I wanted to run away". He was a training assistant while he was in the army and he says he learnt a lot from many people who were from different societies.
He was best friends with a senior that was the same age as him. They even went on a trip to Singapore together. That was his first trip with a friend.
Yoo Seung-ho is pretty calm unlike others his age who are busy looking for new stimulants. He gets up at 10 in the morning and has breakfast. From 2 to 6 in the afternoon he works out and eats again. This is his daily routine. He also eats instant noodles before he goes to bed.
He wants to expand his weight. That's because he easily loses weight if he's under stress. He gained 7 kilograms and soon he'll be back with "Seondal: The Man Who Sells the River".
