Korean actor Ryu Seung-bum has confessed the difficulties he had to describe a mathematician in the upcoming pic “Perfect Number.”
The talented actor said he had troubles depicting the genius mathematician and playing in deep melodrama scenes for the first time, at a press conference for "Perfect Number" at the CGV movie theater in Seoul on September 19.
“Acting in a melodrama used to be a kind of an assignment for me. And it was my first time to portray self-scrificing love. So I talked about my worries with Cho Jin-woong for hours with a few drinks,” the comedy actor said.
Ryu then added, “I still have a question whether this kind of unique love is even possible in the real world. But at least I was able to describe and experience it in the movie thanks to the crews' help.”
Helmed by actress-turned-director Bang Eun-jin of “Princess Aurora” (2005), veteran actor Cho Jin-woong will co-star as Min-bum, the detective in charge of the murder case.
The mystery feature will first be introduced at the 17th Busan International Film Festival [BIFF] on October 7 and hit local theaters on October 18.
