“Thinking about immature language and misunderstood sentences
The elder gave me the answer… You will come to see the play.”
Actor Song Suk Gu (40) revealed that he wrote a handwritten letter and apologized to senior actor Nam Myung Ryul (64), who criticized his remarks about “fake acting” as “arrogant.”
Sung Suk Goo appeared on the JTBC newsroom on the 23rd and said, “(Nam Myung Ryul) wrote a handwritten letter and apologized.” He will also come to see the play.
Song Seok-gu said, “When I started acting about 10 years ago, I worked hard to become a good actor, but sometimes I felt like I was being forced to act close to one standard response.” At that time, I often felt this way because of my intolerance and stubbornness.

In the comments: “Seriously, even if you whisper a real game, you have to think about a game that a 350-seat audience can hear. If you haven’t thought about it, I hope you take it back that you were just about to put on a play. Say, “I used to do this, I was good at the media game.” There are many actors who fill 350 places with their voice, even if they whisper. If the whole game is about playing a fictional character, it’s absurd to define what a real game is.”
