Sporting a new look, Yoo Yeon Seok made a public appearance on 3 August 2015 to promote his newest movie, Beauty Inside. First, Yoo Yeon Seok joined co-stars Han Hyo Joo, Chun Woo Hee, Lee Dong Hwi (who shares the picture below) and Park Seo Joon to meet the press at Lotte Cinema.
Following the press screening, news from Nate went online that describes the difference between Park Seo Joon, Lee Jin Wook and Yoo Yeon Seok’s “Woo Jin”. HanCinema translated the original news from Nate and we quoted Yoo Yeon Seok’s part below:
Yoo Yeon-seok is considered as a ‘warm’ Woo-jin. Although Woo-jin changes every day the public wasn’t confused about who he was thanks to Yoo Yeon-seok’s heart and narrations. His melodical voice started the movie and only in the end did he make an appearance. He leaves a strong impression as he is the last one to appear.
The acting of the actors and actresses in this movie is also praised by Munha News journalist, Jeon Yeong Hyeon. The journalist wrote through a post by NEW that “actors and actresses whom we think cannot be seen in one movie, for one character they came together and showed rich acting”. Others are also giving positive reviews of the movie. Are you excited already waiting for this movie to premiere?
Few hours after the press screening, Yoo Yeon Seok greeted the fans who came to Beauty Inside Showcase. He received very warm applause and pretty louder screams when he introduced himself as the actor who plays the last Woo Jin. Gone are the days of unknown for Yeon Seok. Through his official facebook account, Yoo Yeon Seok expresses his happiness of meeting fans again after a long period of not seeing each other.
Acted as the MC of the music showcase is Yoon Jung Shin who sings the main soundtrack of the movie. Lee Dong Wook who was absent from the press screening joined the cast members in the showcase. Yoo Yeon Seok and Lee Dong Wook bantered cutely during the showcase, showing their close relationship as labelmate in KingKong Entertainment.
During the talkshow segment, all cast members were asked to answer YES or NO to few questions. For the first question, MC Yoon asked the cast members whether they feel sexy the moment they woke up. It’s funny to see that Heohwa cast members (YYS,HHJ,CWH) all raised “O” while Park Seo Joon and Lee Dong Wook said no. Yoo Yeon Seok admitted that he is feeling sexy waking up although he played it down later by saying that his body doesn’t look good these days.
For the second question, Yoon Jung Shin asked if they have a weapon to capture the opposite sex’s attention. Yoo Yeon Seok sheepishly raised an “O” and mentioned that he wants to speak in all honesty but he will be in trouble if he does that. He continued on by saying that he likes to help other people taking picture these days. By doing that, he said that they can grow closer naturally. He mentioned his liking to polaroid and reiterated that he loves to use polaroid because it gives different feeling from photo taken by camera or phone. Since he is currently working in a project (movie Heohwa) together with Han Hyo Joo and Chun Woo Hee, he took pictures of the two actresses in the shooting location using polaroid.
The showcase continued with a game with four lucky audiences who happened to know person named Woo Jin in their life. They were paired with each actor playing Woo Jin to make rhymed sentences using “Hong Yi Soo” as the first syllable of each sentence. Chun Woo Hee couple won the game but was having no luck when it came to winning prize where the actor would do a task as mentioned in the prize board. Yoo Yeon Seok and the audience he was paired with got “back hug” and he did it using only his right hand, fluttering hearts and causing some noises from the roaring audience.
At the end of the showcase, all cast members and Director Baek Jong Yeol sit together on the stage for a group photo. Once again, Yoo Yeon Seok and Lee Dong Wook acted all witty, joined their hand to form a shape of heart. Bromance yo!!
Yoo Yeon Seok is scheduled to join another promo cycle of Beauty Inside by attending the VIP premiere in Yongsan CGV on 12 August 2015 at 8 PM. All the best for the premiere, Yoo Yeon Seok Ssi!!
