Yook Sungjae “I’m terrified of a director who doesn’t know BTOB… I don’t think I’ll ever be able to set my feet on this floor again.”

BTOB’s Yook Sungjae revealed the casting secret of ‘Who Are You – School 2015’ (hereafter Who Are You).

In the MBC ‘Point of Omniscient Interfere’ broadcast on the 1st, Yook Sungjae appeared and told the daily life of filming ‘Gold Spoon‘.

Since Yook Sung-jae emerged as the representative “Acting Idol” in the entertainment industry, he has proved himself as a multi-entertainer by appearing in “Who Are You – School 2015”, “The Secret of the Village-Achiara,” “Goblin,” and “Gold Spoon.”

On this day, Yook Sungjae revealed the secret behind the casting of ‘Who Are You’, which became a success drama. Yook Sungjae said, “My nickname at the time was ‘Wook Seongjae’” and “I was auditioning and the director said, ‘BTOB? Are you an idol? What is BTOB?’ At that time, BTOB was not well known, so ‘We are people who work hard and have dreams. I don’t think that’s what you’re saying,’” he recalled at the time.

At that time, I thought I couldn’t be on this floor anymore. But suddenly a call came. Gong Taekwang’s character in ‘Who Are You’ is similar to my personality now.” – he said

He also introduced the behind-the-scenes story of his appearance in “Gold Spoon.” Yook Sung-jae said, “I asked the director if there was a special reason for casting me while filming, and he said, ‘I picked it because I thought you would have good stamina because you was just discharged from the military.”

He continued, “Actually, I didn’t know there would be so many action scenes. If I knew, I would learn to act professionally. With this incident as an opportunity, I wanted to learn to do action scenes professionally and challenge myself with action movies.”
