A LOOK AT OH YEONG SOO’S ACTING CAREER;
In the theatre, Oh Yeong Soo is a household name. In 1976, he joined the theatre troupe Gwangjang and began his career. After a year of preparation and observation, Yeong Soo made his stage debut as a supporting character in “A Daytime Walk in the Park,” his first play. He’s been a member of various theatre companies in the country, including ‘Seongjwa’ and ‘Yeoin.’ After joining ‘Yeoin,’ the actor landed his first main role in “A Streetcar Named Desire” as Stanley Kowalski. Yeong Soo earned his first acting prize at the Baeksang Arts Awards for playing the lead part in the 993 play “Blooming and Falling, Blooming and Falling.”
Yeong Soo thought his role in the 2003 film “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring” would be his first and last in cinema. Director Hwang Dong Hyuk, on the other hand, had a different plan. Because the actor and director had previously been unable to work together due to scheduling issues, they reconnected in the year 2020. As a result, Oh Yeong Soo joined the cast of ‘Squid Game,’ and history was made. Following the play, the veteran actor received numerous offers for commercials. However, he has turned down all of the offers.
OH YEONG SOO TALKS ABOUT PLAYING OH II NAMIN SQUID GAMES;
‘Squid Game’ was a worldwide hit within days of its publication. The show featured hundreds of people who were stranded on an unknown island, playing games from their youth in the hopes of winning millions of dollars. ‘Squid Game,’ the first Korean show to top the US charts, had a lot to say. Except for one, every individual was going through something so desperate that they were willing to risk their lives. Oh Il Nam, called Contestant 001, was the old man who no one wanted to be coupled with and was viewed as a liability. However, as time went on, we discovered that Oh Il Nam was the real culprit.
Ali was deceived by Sang Woo in ‘Gganbu’, which remains one of the show’s most dramatic episodes. Gi Hun was even caught cheating Il Nam in order to win the game and rescue himself. Oh Yeong Soo opened up about how he cried after filming that moment. Thinking about Gi Hun, who led such an honest life that he had to deceive an elderly man with dementia in order to exist, let the actor realize their own human limitations. After completing “Squid Game,” Oh Yeong Soo is expected to return to the theatre stage in March to play Sigmund Freud in “Freud’s Last Session.”
