Actor Son Seok-gu has shared his thoughts on the recent controversy over his comment about "fake acting."

Son Seok-gu met with domestic journalists at a cafe located in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 7th and discussed the recently released Netflix series 'D.P.2'.

'D.P.' is a Netflix series that tells the story of the military desertion arrest team (D.P.), Jun-ho (played by Jung Hae-in) and Ho-yeol (played by Koo Gyo-hwan), who constantly collide with unchanged reality and irrationality. In this series, Son Seok-gu passionately played the role of officer Lim Ji-sub.

In addition to receiving praise for his performance and the production, Son Seok-gu has also recently become the subject of controversy. At a press conference for a play he appeared in, he referred to the acting in the play as "fake acting," which drew public attention. Senior actor Nam Myung-ryul also criticized Son Seok-gu for his arrogance. Son Seok-gu later explained himself on JTBC's 'Newsroom.'

Regarding the situation, Son Seok-gu stated, "The reason I apologized to senior Nam Myung-ryul was that I felt bad about jokingly calling it 'fake acting' among friends," clarifying that "I actually think there is no definition of fake or real acting. The moment I talk about it, it feels like I'm just catching the tail of it with words. Acting is acting. I think there is no need to attach any modifiers to it."

He also added, "I've never met senior Nam Myung-ryul personally. I even asked him to come in a letter, but he hasn't come yet. I know he's doing a play right now."

Furthermore, he spoke about the weight of his words gaining more significance as he becomes more popular, emphasizing that "having a good intention is important." Son Seok-gu said, "Even if I have good intentions, I can make mistakes in what I say, and it can be distorted, misunderstood by someone. Then, it is important for me to correct it later. It is important to start speaking with good intentions, not to be too careful with every word because it's so important. It's not right to be too cautious and feel down about expressing myself honestly. If something goes wrong, misunderstandings can be resolved, and if there are bad feelings, apologies can be made. I think this may be healthier."
