Ryu Seung Ryong is a South Korean actor. Ryu began his acting career in theater before progressing to become one of the most versatile supporting performers in Korean film and television. In 2013, he starred in "Miracle in Cell No. 7," which became the third highest-grossing Korean film of all time, and in 2019, he starred in the comedy film "Extreme Job," which is presently South Korea's second highest-grossing film of all time. Ryu is the first Korean actor to star in four films with over ten million viewers each.
Miracle in cell no. 7, where he played the handicapped father served as a turning point for Ryu as he took the first lone main character in his career, and the film became his major work, drawing over 10 million audiences and winning the Best Actor at the Grand Bell Awards and the Grand Prize at the Baeksang Arts Awards.
His recent movie, perhaps love is ranking no. 1, with sales of 4 billion won moving eternals to rank no. 2 on the box office. We hope to see more of Ryu's movie break record in the Korean movie market.
