On the December 11 episode of SBS's new talk show 'Because Lee Dong Wook Wants To Talk', actor Gong Yoo recommended some of his favorite movies to viewers including works by Joaquin Phoenix, Clint Eastwood's 'Gran Torino', and more.
The talk show's host Lee Dong Wook then pointed out that Gong Yoo did not mention any horror genre films, remarking, "You can't watch scary movies, right?" Gong Yoo laughed and answered, "I hate scary movies. I just can't watch them alone."
Lee Dong Wook agreed, "I know, I can't watch scary movies either. I've never seen a horror film in theaters in my life." Here, co-MC Jang Do Yeon reminded both Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook that they recently worked on 'horror genre' productions, including 'Train To Busan' and 'Hell Is Other People'. Lee Dong Wook immediately stated that he was okay with being in them as an actor, but Gong Yoo shared, "When I was filming 'Train To Busan', the makeup and costumes were way too real. And even though I knew that these were people wearing makeup, and they're here to play the parts of zombies, I still ran like mad every time we filmed."
He continued, "And then the 'zombies', they would come near me with their makeup and with blood all over themselves. They would come near me and go, 'Gong Yoo...' and I would be so scared, and they would go, 'Can we take a picture together?'."
