Go Yun’s father is a Saenuri lawmaker
One of the officials on the drama production team confirmed the family relation, according to local media reports yesterday.
In the drama, Go, whose real name is Kim Jong-min, played an agent for the terrorist group called Iris.
“He made up his own pseudonym as he did not want people to know that he is the son of [a politician],” the official was quoted as saying.
“He thought his work has nothing to do with the work of his father, and only a few staff members knew his [true identity].”
As the drama was Go’s first as an actor, he will later sign with an agency and expand his presence.
He is not the first actor with a politician in the family. Eun Ji-won, a broadcaster and former member of boy band Sechs Kies, is the nephew of President Park Geun-hye. By Lee Sun-min
