Ryu Seung Bum′s Dorky Side Shines Through in ′Comeback′
Actor Ryu Seung Bum showed off his dorky side in Comeback.
Ryu, who plays the role of An Jin Oh, a character who fakes his own death to get his own insurance money, joined his co-stars for the press premiere of Comeback at a CGV in Wangsimni on March 19, to discuss his role.
Ryu said, “I was able to properly show my dorky side through this film. There were even times when I thought to myself ‘Is it okay to act like this?′"
But Ryu’s clumsy acting will be sure to provide the main comic relief throughout the movie.
Ryu added, “Making my debut at such a [late] age, it wasn’t easy for me to outwardly express my image. However, I was able to show everything that I had this time.”
When asked why he chose the role of An Jin Oh, Ryu replied, “When the president of CINE2000, Lee Choon Yun, showed me the movie script, he said ‘Instead of saying ‘No’, choose the role you want.’ That’s how I ended up in the movie. As much as it is an entertainment movie, I hope the audience will find it amusing.”
In Comeback, two top secret researchers are trying to find a missing corpse. The cast includes Ryu Seung Bum, Lee Bum Soo and Kim Ok Bin.
Comeback will be released in theaters on March 29, and is recommended for viewers 15 years and older.
