[Lily's Take] Yoon Kye-sang Humbly Denies Being Called a Top Actor

2018/03/20 Source

After "The Outlaws" became a huge hit, actor Yoon Kye-sang, who played the main villain in the movie, became one of the hottest actors in the K-cinema world.

On March 20th, an entertainment news reporter visited Yoon Kye-sang for an interview at his advertisement filming set. Even though the visit was unannounced, Yoon Kye-sang happily greeted the reporter. The reporter meant to surprise Yoon Kye-sang but instead, he was surprised at how the actor didn't even flinch. Yoon Kye-sang explained, "Since I was active in a boy group for most of my career, I'm good at keeping my poker face".

Last year, Yoon Kye-sang proudly joined the league of top actors with the movie "The Outlaws". He was a big star to begin with, but after the movie, he became the undeniable top actor. When the reporter mentioned this title given to him by the public, he humbly smiled and answered, "Not even close. I need to learn humility and start from the bottom".

"The Outlaws" accumulated total of 6.8 million views since its release date. Yoon Kye-sang shared, "We were actually wishing for just going over 2 million views in the beginning. At the celebratory party, the views hit 3 million. I thought it was a dream. I had so much fun checking the total views every day".

The actor also shared a bit fellow cast member Jin Seon-kyu. "When I was in the drama "Road No. 1", I met Jin Seon-kyu. He was such a splendid actor, I became his pupil. When he won the Best Supporting Actor award at 2017 Blue Dragon Film Awards, I thought a miracle happened. As I watch watching him give his acceptance speech, I was in tears".

Yoon Kye-sang is currently filming a new movie "MAL-MO-E: The Secret Mission". He said that unlike "The Outlaws", it's a heartwarming story full of hope.
