During the press conference on May 5, the actor said that he grew up watching Chow Yun Fat and Andy Lau's films, and continued, "I think that the 'Infernal Affairs' series is very entertaining and are a great set of movies. I think it'd be fun to try an undercover role. Does it suit me?"
He also named another Hong Kong actor he respected, saying, "I like Tony Leung Chiu Wai, so I think I'd also like to try out roles he'sn done. I have respect for Tony Leung Chiu Wai's acting."
Gong Yoo was then asked if he would be willing to take on a role like the one Tony Leung Chiu Wai had in film 'Lust, Caution', also starring Tang Wei. The actor answered, "I've received this same question in Korea before, where they asked me if I wanted to try a film like 'Lust, Caution'. I think that if a production's overall message or mood is good, something like revealing scenes will not hinder it."
On May 6, Gong Yoo will be meeting with his Hong Kong fans at 'Gong Yoo Live - Make a Wish in Hong Kong'.
