Personal Quote:

[after winning Mnet 20's Choice Movie Star Award, 2013] 20's choice! I can feel the youth and passion! Of all the outstanding candidates, I, who look like in 50s but actually in 40s, got the honor to be given this award. I'd like to give this award to Seung-Ryong Ryu in his 20s, who continued to uphold passion for acting even though he was penniless and went through a hard time. See more »

Trivia:

He has had to acquire 5 languages for the roles in his films over the last 2 years: Manchu language (a Qing dynasty commander in 'War of the Arrows'), Spanish, French and African (a versatile ladies' man in 'All About My Wife'), and Japanese (a Japanese pirate in the upcoming film 'Battle of Myeongryang').
