South Korean actor Gong Yoo has no plans to settle down soon. The 37-year-old actor apparently wants to concentrate on his career at the moment.

During an interview, Yoo opened up about his thoughts on marriage. He said: "I'm now in my late 30's and I've been thinking a lot about marriage and family. To be honest, I've decided to push aside thoughts of marriage and personal questions for now."

"This is an important time for me," he added, "and how I spend it will change how I spend my life after my 40's. I was influenced a lot by director Kim Ji Woon when we were working together. He asked me how much time I thought a person had to enjoy life on their own. He said that in Korea, a person depends on their parents until they're in their 30's, so we only have the time from our 30's to our 60's to fully enjoy ourselves."

He continued: "I'd previously thought that a person needed a partner to not feel lonely, and to be taken care of when you're old and sick."

Yoo revealed on his Facebook page that he will be soon seen in a drama called Goblin in December.
