Okay, just how many movies Yoo Yeon Seok did in the past year?
We are about to lose track, to be honest. He literally spent most of his time last year filming movies after movies (plus lots of CFs). If Na PD did not kidnap and ship him off to Laos with Son Ho Jun and Baro, we were really in danger of not seeing him in the small screen all year long. Youth Over Flowers first aired in September and ran until October 2014.
The Informant and Royal Tailor were released in October and December 2014 respectively. Expectation was running high before turning tide with the push back of Perfect Proposal‘s release date to June 2015. Not to mention all the bits and pieces about his movie with Moon Chae Woon titled The Mood That Day to keep the fans on their toes. Then came Warm and Cozy which released all Yoo Yeon Seok’s fans from fear of their favorite actor never to make a return to the small screen.
“When it rains, it pours”
Now we have an update on his even newer movie, Beauty Inside. Joining Han Hyo Joo and Park Seo Joon, Yoo Yeon Seok appeared in a promotional video of the movie.
The video released on Naver (click HERE) allures prospective audience to enter a competition by shooting a video like main character, Woo Jin. The contest opens today [2015-04-29] until 3 May 2015. The winner of the competition will have their name put on the credit title.
The movie Beauty Inside is based on the 2012 American social film with the same name sponsored by Intel and Toshiba that won the commercial awards at the 2013 Clio Awards & Cannes Lions. The Korean adaptation stars Han Hyo Joo as Yi Soo on whom Woo Jin has a big crush. According to enewsworld, Woo Jin is a man who wakes up as a different person every morning, across all genders, ages and nationalities. Kinda scary, don’t you think? Well, not necessarily when you have literally all the stars out there to play this unique character. The stars casted to play as Woo Jin include our Yoo Yeon Seok, Park Seo Joon, Lee Beom Soo, Lee Dong Wook, and Lee Jin Wook as well as Park Shin Hye and Japan’s Ueno Juri. Sounds like we got a star-studded movie here.

Prior to the promotional video, there are photos leaked from the shooting locations. Yoo Yeon Seok himself posted a couple of photos [P1, P2, P3] in Praha when he apparently shot his scenes with Han Hyo Joo. Though he never really posted his picture with Han in Praha, no worries… we got it all covered.

Yoo Yeon Seok also took a behind-the-scene picture with child actor Park Min Su who has kindly shared it on his instagram.

The release dates for both Beauty Inside and The Mood That Day are still unknown.
What we know, Yoo Yeon Seok is still scheduled to shoot a new movie, currently titled “Hae Uh Hwa“, with Han Hyo Joo. This movie was supposed to start filming in April but KingKong Entertainment Ceo Lee Jin Sung has kindly confirmed that the shooting will only happen in early summer. So let’s be thankful, the free timeslot created by the pushback enabled Yoo Yeon Seok to accept Hong Sisters’ offer to play Baek Geun Woo in Warm and Cozy.
Guess it’s fate, people…
