Hwang In Youp Talks About Late Debut

"But after entering my late 20s, I suddenly felt like I've used up too much energy in my early to mid 20s. So, I learned to relax and accept some things the way they were in life."

Although he waited for a long time, Hwang In Youp feels happy and blessed that he can be part of a series and move as an actor.
