South Korean singer and actor Seo In Guk has opened up about managing two successful careers simultaneously. The 29-year-old artist started his singing career after winning the talent reality show Superstar K in 2009 and then was noted for his acting in Reply 1997.

During an interview with Yeonhap News, Guk talked about his career in the entertainment industry. He said: "When I debuted as a singer, I experienced a lot of hardships, but I held it in without telling anyone. That's when I did 'Love Rain', and even from my perspective, my acting was bad."

"It was luck that I met '38 Police Squad' and director Han Dong Hwa. I wasn't portraying the kind of acting style I was aiming for effectively, but all that became shattered by meeting one director. The role of Yang Jung Do in '38 Police Squad' was a turning point for me," he added.

Guk is thankful to his acting and singing career, and revealed he cannot choose one between them. He said: "I get asked that a lot, but they're both careers that I love, and it's difficult for me to gravitate toward one more than the other. Even when I'm acting, I carry my computer around and work on music."

He added: "I want to become an actor whose productions will get people to say, there are lives like that, when they watch me, and I want to become a singer who can tell people's stories."
