From being an adorable, chubby contestant on Superstar K and its first winner, to becoming an idol and actor in the hit drama Answer Me 1997, the star of Seo In-guk is constantly rising. This talented actor was born on October 23, 1987 in Ulsan, South Korea. Although he didn't change his physique much for his last film, he lost about 11 pounds for his role as Myul Mang in Doom At Your Service (202). Because he plays a unique character, he experimented with dyeing his hair with unusual hair colors to further improve his performance.
However, this is not the first time that this actor has undergone a drastic change in weight for a role. In preparation for No Breathing (201) and The Master's Sun (201), In Guk lost more than 20 pounds, as those functions required him to be in good physical shape. However, keep in mind that you didn't lose so much at once. Thanks to his own discipline, he was able to constantly control his weight through exercise and also followed a strict six-month diet.
More than just a talented actor, Seo In-guk is a professional singer-songwriter with a voice that can easily make your heart beat. While studying Applied Music at Daebul University, Seo auditioned for several record agencies such as JYP Entertainment and DSP Media, but was unsuccessful. Seo loved music so much that he eventually studied applied music at Daebul University while auditioning for entertainment agencies such as JYP Entertainment. Undoubtedly, Reply 1997 launched Seo's career, as he chose the lead role when he was just a novice actor.
While his acting skills are not questionable, Seo's piercing eyes also convey a lot of emotions that cause fans to support him to (finally) win the Best Actor award at the 58th Baeksang Arts Awards next year. It's been two years since actor Seo In-guk played a mysterious man with a forgotten past in The Smile Has Left Your Eyes, the new South Korean version of the 2002 Japanese television series. In Doom at Your Service, which is broadcast on Viu, Seo In-guk plays the character of Myul Mang (from the Korean word myeolmang meaning destruction or perdition), a messenger between gods and humans, who unexpectedly meets Tak Dong-kyung (Park Bo-young), an editor of a web novel company who was diagnosed with glioblastoma and only there are 100 days left to live. And as an all-star wish come true, Seo In-guk is welcoming the year with a crime-action movie called Pipeline and a swoon-inducing series, Doom at Your Service.
Like the rest of the main cast of Reply 1997, who used the authentic Gyeongsang dialect for his roles on the Busan stage, Seo had no problem doing the same, since he hails from Ulsan. Seo In-guk and Jung Eun-ji's song, All for You, also won three best soundtrack awards at the 14th edition of the Mnet Asian Music Awards, the fourth edition of the Melon Music Awards and the first edition of the KDrama Star Awards that same time. And as an all-star wish that came true, Seo In-guk welcomes the year with a crime action movie called Pipeline and a faint-provoking fantasy romantic series, Doom at Your Service. In Pipeline, Seo stars alongside his Doom At Your Service co-star, Lee Soo-hyuk, where he takes on the role of Pin Dol-yi, a drilling engineer.
Seo In-guk plays the character of Myul Mang (from the Korean word myeolmang meaning destruction or perdition), a messenger between gods and humans. Soon after, Seo wrote a letter to his fans to apologize and address speculation that he was trying to evade military service.
