Gong Yoo apologized to his mother for not being able to visit her often in the recent past.
During his speech after winning Best Drama Actor at the 53rd Baeksang Awards, Gong Yoo couldnt hold back his tears after mentioning his mother.
He started off his speech by making a joke about his character in Goblin, Kim Shin.
Up until a few months ago, I was a lonely but great Goblin and now Ive returned to being a very vulnerable person.
Gong Yoo then went on to thank Goblins production team, scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook, who had been trying to get Gong Yoo to star in her dramas for years, and all of the loyal viewers who watched Goblin.
Following this, he had a heartfelt message to his mother.
Since I was busy going between my house and the broadcast station, my mother says that shes become a bit disappointed in me recently. She says that I feel like Im someone elses son and not hers.
This is because I havent treated her well recently. I feel so sorry to her. I hope you stay healthy for a very, very long time.
