Hong Yo-seob Personal Life
When it comes to an actor with a more gentle image than anyone else, and an unrivaled actor who brings his own sense of stability to the screen in any scene, he naturally comes to mind Hong Yo-seob. His life as an actor has also reached 40 years. However, despite the certainty of the character as an actor who has been strengthened for such a long time, surprisingly, Hong Yo-seob is an actor that cannot be easily seen in a CRT. This is because he is not prolific, refrains from appearing overlapping, and lives with a thorough life as a free person.
“It was about twenty-six after I was discharged. That era was the so-called ‘the era of being caught if you speak,’ but it is to cool those ‘sounds to be caught’ in small theater performances. Originally, my major was the Department of Journalism and Broadcasting, but after seeing it, I transferred to the Department of Theater and Film.”
‘I couldn’t even think of it’. Hong Yo-seob expressed that he became an actor. What his father said to himself he chose such a path became his lifelong guide. “Do what you want to do. Just don’t be embarrassed to your wife or friends.”
Beside that, Hong Yo-seob also had knee surgery that changed his life. And at a similar time, there was one more secret that changed his life. It’s related to politics. Perhaps even more strangely, there was no political temptation for a person in such a position. “In the past, there has been an offer to recruit members of the National Assembly. But when I saw that, people who were really embarrassed appeared as candidates for the National Assembly. I refused because I thought it wasn’t. But when I injured my knee, former President Lee Myung-bak was elected as a presidential candidate, and the campaign was in full swing. At that time, I was the last support speaker in the broadcast campaign.”
He did not know the details of former President Lee Myung-bak, but was told that he was not empty. However, a call came to him asking him to give a support speech on the air. “I am not a political party or politician,” he said, and he revised the manuscript. “I went to the station to record with it. But when I arrived at the broadcasting station, there was a problem. The manuscript whose tone was changed was placed. As I read, they were completely politicians. How did that happen at the urgent timing of the recording day?”
“Because the BBK scandal (stock price manipulation incident) broke out. According to the original manuscript, I want to tell what kind of person my father is and I was talking stiffly. But right now, it was about becoming a politician. When I showed it to my wife and friend who came together, I was worried, ‘If I do this, it will be a big deal.’’
The person who asked him persuaded him, but no matter how much he looked at, it wasn’t this. “If I was going to do politics, I already did it. I came back saying ‘I can’t.’ Seeing a few years later, I would almost rotted in 4-5 years. Still, the tone of the manuscript before the BBK incident was very good, but I’m sorry.”
Hong Yo-seob has the generosity of a person who cares. He travels in remote places around the world and loves the sea. This is what he wanted to do before getting old. He, too, was thinking about how to live these days when he gets older. Seokmodo is one of his favorite escape to go these days.
“In Seokmodo, Incheon, there is also a hot spring complex with strength, good fishing, and good water. It is also good to build a small house there. I also want to grow eel. Because I like water. Growing eel takes a lot of effort. Then you can keep working, isn’t it fun? Living with dirt buried.”
He said calmly that it would be nice if no one could remember him. He said that he did not make people memorable just because he was determined. Like the water and wind he loves, like his father, who loved life but was not afraid of death, he has lived that way. There was no regret for his refreshing answer. He did not go wrong because he walked only the path he believed was right, and he once again envied him enjoying the real freedom that money and honor could not buy.
