With this, the "Coffee Prince" actor spills the tea as he graces Esquire Korea's cover for their April issue.


In the interview, the 41-year-old A-lister looked dapper in his all-white ensemble.

During the chat, Gong Yoo talked about his working relationship with Park Bo Gum. The "Goblin" star shares how the 27-year-old actor reminds him of his younger self.

"Although it's our first time meeting and collaborating, I think about that age range that I've experienced and think, 'What kind of thoughts does Bo Gum have now and what kind of mindset does he have as an actor?' which creates a special kind of bond," he shared.

As for the "Record of Youth" star's attitude towards work, Gong Yoo lauded the young actor and said that "he is extremely responsible, bright, and always smiling."

However, the A-list celebrity thinks that Park Bo Gum still has inhibitions and "certain worries he has on the inside."

In the movie, Gong Yoo portrays the role of a former intelligence agent Gi-heon. For his final mission, he was tasked to secure the safe transfer of the first human clone ever named Seok Bok, played by Park Bo Gum.

The genetically mutated human clone is said to be the key to uncover the secret of eternal life. Unfortunately, the duo faced struggles and was caught up in dangerous circumstances due to several forces who wanted to take Seo Bok.
