SINGER: Any advice for young actors out there?
YEUN: Confidence. That’s huge as an actor. Confidence can get you a long way. Maybe it’s a cultural thing, being Korean, but my first reflex has always been to exude humility—but it doesn’t help you in acting. For acting, humility isn’t the best thing. It’ll weaken your work. So it’s a head game for me. “Can I really be confident in knowing my skill set is down? Can I perform like I own this role?”
