Gong Yoo's interview with CNN has just aired. During which, the "Goblin" star revealed how he did not have any plans on becoming an actor at all.

Gong Yoo's interview with CNN's "Talk Asia" was aired on Monday, May 29 with host Anna Coren. The interview was actually recorded back in April but airing was postponed for unknown reasons.

Gong Yoo was asked many things in the 30-minute interview with CNN, including what he misses in his personal, private life. In his interview with CNN, Gong Yoo revealed that misses going out for walks the most.

Apparently, back when he was still living a normal life, Gong Yoo enjoyed long walks outside. The actor also enjoyed eating street foods back in the day.

Nowadays, unfortunately, Gong Yoo can't do any of the two without being mobbed by his fans. In the interview, the actor revealed how much he misses being just "free".

Anna Coren asked the "Goblin" star if he wishes sometimes that fans would just simply respect his privacy. "Yes, sometimes I do, if that's possible. But it's not. I think it's impossible," replied Gong Yoo.

Anna Coren also asked Gong Yoo if he always wanted to be an actor. Gong Yoo laughed and said "No". "Then how did you become one?" asked Coren.

Gong Yoo then revealed that when he chose "Theater" to be his major in the university he attended, it was not for him to become an actor one day. It was only when Gong Yoo started to hang out with friends who dreamed of becoming actors that also made him dream of becoming one.

Furthermore, Gong Yoo added that he became more interested in the art of expression as he studied and hung out with his university friends. "I started to think 'Maybe I could become an actor,' but I didn't have the confidence," answered Gong Yoo.

In other news, The Jakarta Post reports that Gong Yoo will be featured on the cover of Esquire magazine in 7 Asian countries! These include Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and Indonesia.

This is the first time in Esquire that one actor is on the cover of different Asian magazine edition at once. Esquire Magazine's June issue featuring Gong Yoo will also be sold in Vietnam and in the Philippines.
