Son Seok Gu made a guest appearance as Special MC in the broadcast of the SBS reality show on November 21. After introducing him to the Panel of Prominent Mothers, Shin Dong Yup pointed out, “It’s been about five years since he made his acting debut, but this is the first time he has appeared on a variety show.”
“I was on a radio show once,” explained Son Seok Gu, “but this is my first appearance on a variety show on television.”
host Seo Jang Hoon then brought up the fact that the actor had studied abroad in Canada during elementary school – and that his parents had decided to send him abroad because he was an unusually shy student.
“When I look back today on how I was then, I am a little amazed myself,” said Son Seok Gu. “Well, I’m not that shy, and when I started working as an adult I got a lot better. But looking back how [shy I was], even I feel like it was almost like a disease. As soon as school was over, I went home straight away, and on the weekends I just stayed home and didn’t go out. Even if my parents took me somewhere, for example to a department store, I couldn’t say a single word until I got home. “
“So my father was very worried about me,” the actor continued. “And at some point I also had the feeling that something had to change too.”
Later, when asked about his real life dating style, Son Seok Gu replied, “When I lived in Canada, I had a girlfriend and it was Valentine’s Day. Saw a photo of this really cool restaurant on an island that needs a boat to go to and I decided to take it there based on that one photo I saw. So we took the boat to the island, but when we got there the island itself was completely shrouded in darkness so we had to take the boat and come right back. It was then that I realized: ‘Dating is not easy.’ “
“After that, in order to prevent such a situation in which I apologized, [my date], I try to plan my appointments in advance, ”said Son Seok Gu. “But I don’t think I’m very good at it.”
As for his ideal type, Son Seok Gu revealed that he wants to date someone who is funny and humorous. When Seo Jang Hoon urged him whether that’s the only thing that matters to him, the actor replied playfully, “It’s one of about 25 things that are important to me. But someone who has fun and a sense of humor is really important to me. “
