Fans have taken to Twitter to express their desire to be slapped by Gong Yoo in these hilarious tweets.
There were a lot of takeaways from the South Korean hit series, Squid Game. It is taking the world by storm for its gripping story, the well-written characters, and its social commentary. While there are disturbing things that happen in the show that may stay with the audience even after they are done watching the show, it's the actors who are leaving an impression on them. The popularity of model-turned-actress Jung Ho Yeon, and actor Wi Ha Joon have skyrocketed - thanks to the success of the show.
Other than the lead actors, there is another person who has stolen hearts with a cameo that barely lasts 10 minutes. It is none other than Gong Yoo of Goblin and Train to Busan fame, who shows up at a crucial time in the show. He plays a salesman who recruits participants to play in the Squid Game at train stations. He challenges Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae) to a game of "ddakji" and promises to pay him for every round he wins and slap him for every round he loses. That one scene where Gong Yoo slaps Gi-hun has now become iconic with fans of the actor, new and old alike, wanting to experience it themselves.
