Actor Ryu Jun-yeol opened up about the controversy over his transit relationship.

On the 10th, a production presentation for the Netflix series 'The 8 Show' was held at the Ambassador Pullman Hotel in Jangchung-dong, Seoul. Actors Ryu Jun-yeol, Chun Woo-hee, Park Jung-min, Lee Yeol-eum, Park Hae-joon, Joo-young Lee, Jeong-hee Moon, Seong-woo Bae, and director Jae-rim Han attended the event.

'The Eight Show' is a work that depicts the story of eight people who are trapped in a secret space divided into eight floors and participate in a sweet but dangerous show where they 'earn money as time accumulates'. It is an adaptation of the webtoons ‘Money Game’ and ‘Pygame’ by author Bae Jin-soo, which recorded 300 million cumulative global views.

Ryu Jun-yeol's 'transit love rumor' arose during his recent public relationship with Han So-hee and their breakup. In addition, while working as a public relations ambassador for Greenpeace, he showed his pride as a golf enthusiast by serving as a caddy, which drew criticism as 'greenwashing' (an act of promoting an eco-friendly image through advertisements while producing products that actually have a negative impact on the environment).

Regarding issues related to his personal life, Ryu Jun-yeol said, "At that time, posts were posted on social media against my will. Rather than answering them one by one, I thought it was best to remain silent and deal with the resulting criticism." “I have read the critical stories related to this and it has been an opportunity for me to reflect on myself,” he said.

He added, "As it is a production presentation, I think continuing to talk about personal things would be detrimental to the work and my fellow actors. I will do so when I can do a personal interview or talk."

‘The Eight Show’ will be released on the 15th.
