On the 18th, I met Kim Moo-yeol, the star of the movie 'THE ROUNDUP: PUNISHMENT', at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Seoul.

'THE ROUNDUP: PUNISHMENT' is about detective Ma Seok-do (played by Ma Dong-seok), who returns to fight against Baek Chang-gi (played by Kim Moo-yeol), a former special forces mercenary who runs a large-scale online illegal gambling organization, and IT industry genius CEO Jang Dong-cheol (played by Lee Dong-hwi). ), a movie depicting a crime eradication operation carried out together with the Kwangsoo Unit and the Cyber Team. Kim Moo-yeol plays the role of Baek Chang-ki, a former special forces mercenary villain who runs a large-scale illegal online gambling organization.

Kim Moo-yeol married Yoon Seung-ah in April 2015, and had a son in June last year. Kim Moo-yeol said, "When I'm working on set, I miss my son and think about what he's going to do. It's just that I look at pictures and think, 'He's cute,' but I didn't think that I should take responsibility as a father with a son while acting. But recently, as a father, I've become a father." “I felt a sense of responsibility. It was on the news recently, and my mother and mother-in-law came to watch it, and it was my son’s first time watching it on TV.” He then confessed, "He said he was amazed to see his father and his voice on TV. It was only then that I started to think about how I should live as a person, not just as an actor."

When asked if his 10-month-old son recognizes his father, he laughed and said, "He responds to my voice and calls me mom and dad. Even mom knows how to talk."

When asked what it was like to be 'Dad Kim Mu-yeol' rather than actor Kim Mu-yeol, he replied, "I can't believe it. Even though I'm watching it, I wonder if it's real. It's like going back and forth between reality and unreality." He smiled and said, “When I sit facing him, I wonder, ‘Is he really my son?’ I change his diaper, feed him, and put him to sleep. It’s amazing to see him sleeping.”

When asked who he resembles, he replied, "I swell a lot and it looks like that. When I wake up in the morning, my baby is swollen. The baby usually sleeps on his stomach. That's why he swells even more." He added, "People who meet in the morning say the baby looks like me. It's because the swelling is less. People who see the baby in the afternoon say it looks like its mother. They say the baby's face keeps changing as it grows."

'THE ROUNDUP: PUNISHMENT' will be released on the 24th.
