Gong Myung Talks About Playing A God For His Upcoming Fantasy Drama
Gong Myung is the latest celebrity to be featured in Marie Claire!
In his interview for the magazine’s April issue, the actor opened up about what acting has taught him about himself, his latest co-stars, and projects he is currently working on.
He recently began shooting the upcoming tvN drama “Bride of the Water God” (tentative title), where he plays the role of Biryeom, a god who lives among humans.
“In the past, I played mostly ‘daily life’ characters, so it was easy to find references for the roles. I could actually observe people living that life,” he explained. “But this time, you have to read the scenario and become part of an imaginary world. It is difficult, but it’s also fun. It feels like I’m becoming a part of that world.”
When asked what he would do if he was an actual god, he revealed that he just wants to be able to teleport. “So once I finish work, I could go straight to my room and go to bed in an instant,” he joked.
“Bride of the Water God” is scheduled for release in the second half of the year. The drama, which is based on a popular Korean manhwa, will also star Nam Joo Hyuk and f(x)’s Krystal.
In the meantime, Gong Myung can currently be seen alongside actress Jung Hye Sung on “We Got Married.”
