Veteran actor Oh Young Su, from the Netflix original series Squid Game, made a guest appearance on MBC’s Hangout with Yoo, and gave viewers some wise advise about life. Oh, who has been acting for 58 years, greeted host Yoo Jae Suk with a handshake.
This program, although usually full of fun and games, took a turn for this episode, as Oh poured out some deep messages about his insight on life.
Our society tends to think that you have to only be first place. But although second place may have lost to first place, they have beaten third place. Everyone is a winner. To me, a true winner is someone who does their best in what they enjoy and works hard to reach a certain level of expertise.
— Oh Young Su
In terms of his wishes, “I don’t have anything special, but maybe just a worry. To live without any problems with my family. I’ve received a lot of things, big or small, by not becoming greedy. Now, I want to return all the things I have received.”
As an example, he stated, “When I was younger, I would pick flowers from the mountain, but now at this age, I would just leave it and come back again to see it. I think it’s the same thing with life. To leave it as is, which is very difficult to do.”
