On 21st November 2003 the film Oldboy was released marking the debut of Ahn Yeon Seok in Korea’s entertainment industry.
On casting Yoo Yeon Seok, Park Chan Wook said he needed to find an actor who looked like Yoo Ji Tae, but reassured he didn’t just cast him because of his looks. “He’s very good at acting. When we were filming the scene in the chemistry room with Yoon Ji Seo, I was worried that it might be hard for a rookie actor to do, but after he worried a bit, he tried very hard and created that scene.”
Yoo Yeon Seok’s scene in the science lab is quite daunting for a rookie but he did pretty well. 😉 Check out the movie if you haven’t seen it. Be warned of the violence and the total mind-fuck. (Oops! Pardon the French.)
In celebration of his 11th year, YeoNiverse has handed in this wine – made on the same year of his debut – to Yoo Yeon Seok a couple of weeks ago. We hope he gets to enjoy this together with his friends.
Cheers to Yoo Yeon Seok! Your YeoNiverse is here to support you always and looking forward to celebrating more anniversaries with you.
