In his interview with TV Report, KingKong Entertainment CEO Lee Jin Sung talks, among others, Yoo Yeon Seok’s recent comeback to small screen through MBC’s “Warm & Cozy”.
We are happy to provide you with the translated excerpt of the interview right below:
There were many drama offers for Yoo Yeon Seok, but it was difficult for him to accept them because of his movie filming schedule. But because the crank in of his movie was moved to the early summer, he gained some free time.
Even though he hasn’t able to rest as the drama filming starts, he just thought of it as (a good thing) for being able to do a project naturally, and confirmed “Warm and Cozy”. The Hong Sisters (Hong JeongEun, Hong Miran) had considered him greatly and contacted him.
Last year, Yoo Yeon Seok kept doing movies with opposite characters, so he said that if he’s going to be on a drama he wants to show a lighter character. In movies, he has always shown dramatic characters, so in dramas he wanted to show a comfortable image. I think he really matched this project well in many ways”
