The "Goblin" star explained that he felt uncomfortable in potentially sharing pictures or information that might be repackaged to convey a different story, Xports News quoted the actor as saying. He also commented that not all social media users or fans may agree with his opinion but it was one of the reasons why decided to forego opening his own online account.
Moreover, Gong Yoo revealed that he does not enjoy selfie pictures or taking photographs of the places that he traveled to. Getting to appreciate the various sights and interesting experiences with his own senses is more enjoyable than taking pictures, according to the "Goblin" star.
