Yong-soo, who plays 001 actor in the series, began his career in 1963 and has been playing in South Korea for almost six decades. He went on to say about the price of fame: "Things have changed. Even when I go out to a cafe or place like this, I need to be aware of what I look like. It makes me think 'being famous is hard' '.



He added: "I have no great ambitions. I have received many things during my life and now I want to leave behind the things I received. Simply put, let's say you go to the mountain and see a flower. When we are young, we pick the flower and take it for ourselves. But when you reach my age "You leave him there just the way he is and come back to see him again later. It's the same with life. Leaving things behind just the way they are. It's not easy."



Two weeks ago, Netflix reported that "The Squid Game" is the series that launched the most successful in the history of the streaming service.

In doing so, she overtook "Bridgerton," the previous series that held the record.
