GOT7’S Jinyoung Revealed That His Character In Real Life Is Almost Similar To Yoo Bobby Who He Played In The Drama ‘Yumi’s Cells’ In An Interview With GQ Korea, Like What?
GOT7’s Jinyoung is currently in the spotlight for starring in the drama ” Yumi’s Cells ” season 2. Jinyoung plays Yoo Bobby, Kim Yumi’s ( Kim Go Eun ) lover after breaking up with Goo Woong ( Ahn Bo Hyun ).
In a joint interview with GQ Korea, Jinyoung certainly did not hesitate to promote his currently airing drama. Jinyoung talked about his character in “Yumi’s Cells 2”.
Jinyoung explained about his statement that said Yoo Bobby had a “good boy” disease. The GOT7 member mentioned that it was related to how Yoo Bobby was always kind to everyone.
“It’s obsessive. Bobby has an urge to do good to others. For all women, even for men. If you look at some of Bobby’s actions, there are many things that can cause misunderstandings,” Jinyoung explained.
“Even though he didn’t appear in the drama, if you look at Bobby’s narration in the original webtoon , you will find the phrase ‘I think we can do it blindly’. I felt it at that time. Bobby has a good childhood disease,” explained Jinyoung.
Jinyoung himself claimed to understand Yoo Bobby’s position well. He feels that he has also been in a moment of being hit by a “good boy” disease like his character. Jinyoung mentioned that he tried to be nice to everyone when he first came to Seoul when he was young.
“I came to Seoul alone at the age of 17 and had no place to lean on. I think the way I survived was similar to Bobby’s. I tried hard to say hello, exaggerated, and spoke kindly,” said Jinyoung.
“I thought I could quickly get a clue about Bobby’s character while reminding me of my old self,” he admits.
Meanwhile, Jinyoung himself first debuted as a duo with Jay B ( JB ) named JJ Project in 2012 under the stage name Jr. (Junior). He made his acting debut through ” Dream High ” season 2. In 2014, Jinyoung and Jay B re-debuted together with GOT7. This time, Jinyoung chose a stage name according to his real name.
