Actor Heo Seong-tae (46) realized his popularity in Australia. On tvN’s ‘Busan Countryhead in Sydney’, which aired on the 23rd, Heo Seong-tae, Lee Si-eon, Ahn Bo-hyun, and Kwak Jun-bin (Kwak Tube) left for Sydney, Australia.

Before starting their working holiday, they went to the bank to set up a payroll account and card. Working Holidays is a system that allows young people between the ages of 18 and 30 to experience the local culture and language while working and traveling abroad for a year.

With the exception of Kwak Jun-bin, all three were over 30, so they were granted short-term employment status, not working holiday visas. Heo Seong-tae, who worked for two months in Papua New Guinea when he was a college student, easily completed the job based on his experience.

On the other hand, Lee Si-eon had difficulties communicating in English with a bank employee. The employee asked, “Why are the cameras filming outside?” and Lee Si-eon replied, “We are filming a Korean TV show.” When asked if he was famous, he said, “Yes. I am an actor.” When an employee asked what movie he appeared in, Lee Si-eon replied, “Lee Si-eon,” and laughed.

The employee asked, “Can I watch that movie on Netflix?” Then, as if the Netflix movie ‘Squid Game’ suddenly came to mind, Lee Si-eon pointed out Heo Seong-tae, who was an actor, and the worker was surprised to recognize Heo Seong-tae.

Heo Seong-tae, born in 1977, became an actor for the first time in 2011 through an acting survival program. After playing small roles and independent films, in the 2016 film ‘Secretary’, he showed his presence by acting slapped by Song Kang-ho. Since then, he has appeared in various works such as ‘Criminal City’, ‘Namhansanseong’, and ‘Squid Game’.
