Gong Myung, the South Korean actor, recently opened up about the changes he went through after being discharged from the military.
He sat down for an interview to promote his upcoming movie, Citizen of a Kind, and talked about how his life changed after being discharged from the military.
Citizen of a Kind is an exciting chase drama that follows the story of Deok-hee (played by Ra Miran), an everyday person who falls victim to voice phishing. Things take a thrilling turn when she receives a rescue plea from Jaemin (played by Gong Myung), a member of the fraudster group.
However, in the drama, Gong Myung portrays Jaemin, an ordinary college student who unknowingly gets caught up in a voice phishing organization.
In Ramiran’s review of meeting Gong Myung, who just got back from the military, she mentioned, “He returned from the military and suddenly became an uncle. He used to be like a little baby, and I kinda miss that,” she said.
After hearing this, the 29-year old actor playfully mentioned that Ra Mi-ran told him he turned into a dog after his return. He also shared that he had the chance to meet his seniors before enlisting and recently reunited with them. Reflecting on himself, he feels like he has become a more cunning person. Now he finds himself saying, “Yes.”
Gong Myung went on to say, “I’m in my 30s, but I’m not sure. I think there are changes that come from being in the military. No matter how well you manage your military service, there are things that change when you return, and there are times when I get laughed at as well.”
When asked if he had any anxiety while serving in the military, the actor mentioned he never let any anxiety or doubts affect his self-esteem or confidence. He made a conscious effort not to dwell on those thoughts, and even if they did come up, he made sure they didn’t bring him down.
