Gong Yoo revealed that he doesnt have SNS accounts because of these reasons.
Gong Yoo held a fan meeting in Taiwan to meet his countless Taiwanese fans after a successful run with his hit drama Goblin.
During the fan meeting, there was a QA section and a fan asked Gong Yoo the following question:
Gong Yoo! Why dont you have any SNS accounts?
Gong Yoo answered the fans question by telling her the reasons why he didnt have any accounts, clearing up the matter once and for all.
First of all, I dont have SNS accounts because I dont like taking selfies and photos in general. I like to see things in person rather than capturing them in photo form. Also, most of the time these services are used to share photos. So when you show a photo, you have to package and edit it in a certain manner and I dont like it because its unnatural. I dont like thinking about editing and how this photo could be seen as.
Gong Yoo also further explained by saying that this was just his personal opinion and stance. He does not think having an SNS account is bad but it just wasnt for him personally.
