Actor Jung Woo Sung says his good looks are a hurdle he has to cross.
Jung Woo Sung featured as a guest on the January 22nd episode of MBC FM4U's 'Bae Chul Soo's Music Camp', and the actor discussed his 25-year acting career. DJ Bae Chul Soo asked what it was like to be one of the most handsome Korean actors, and Jung Woo Sung said, "It's expected," adding "That's a joke I make often, but I feel embarrassed saying it here."
The actor then talked about his good looks affected him, sharing, "It's a judgment on a part of myself as a person, but it's not an absolute judgment. It's just a fraction of me, and the rest is up to me to fill out. I try to live my life thinking that judgments on my movies and myself whether they be compliments or criticism are not my own."
He continued, "In a way, judgments on my looks are a hurdle I have to cross. I have to cross them, and as an actor and person, I have to mentally convince viewers. You don't communicate better because you have good looks. You have to communicate through acting."
