Gone are days of the unknown for Yoo Yeon Seok.
Following his successful portrayal as Chilbong in Reply 1994, Yoo Yeon Seok has steadily gained more recognition from the public. He is being invited to VIP premieres and his presence doesn’t go unnoticed any longer. Fans were seen cheering at him while camera are rolling and flashing on him. His red carpet fashion is also noticed. While some of them nearly propelled him into fashion terrorist status, others are considered fashionable. In sum, Yoo Yeon Seok can certainly put his unnoticable red carpet moments – which he revealed on Hwasin – in the past.
On 15 July 2015, Yoo Yeon Seok was spotted attending the VIP Premiere of The Guest (손님) starring Chun Woo Hee, his co-stars in Beauty Inside and Heohwa. His “Warm and Cozy” co-star, Kang Sora, was also seen in the red carpet although the two stars appeared separately.
After nearly a month hiatus, he recently returned to the red carpet of “Memories of the Sword” VIP Premiere on 11 August 2015. Yoo Yeon Seok’s attendance was confirmed a day early when list of VIP Celebrity attending the premiere went online. He came to support Director Park Heung-Sik who also directs his newest movie, Heohwa. Yoo Yeon Seok’s former and current co-stars as well as his past movie director were also in attendace. Park Hae Il and Director Lim Soon Rye of “Whistle Blower” as well Chun Woo Hee of “Beauty Inside” are among the VIP guests. Meanwhile, Lee Gyeung Young who played along side Yoo Yeon Seok in Whistle Blower and Perfect Proposal is one of the cast members of “Memories of the Sword”. What a tiny world.
When it comes to his own movie, Yoo Yeon Seok is a man in black for the VIP Premiere of Beauty Inside on 12 August 2015. His outfit matches the majority of his co-stars who came also in black. Seems like many of the cast members were in agreement to color-coordinated their outfit. Yoo Yeon Seok was looking really happy and spotted linking arms with actress Han Hyo Joo to greet press and fans in the VIP premiere red carpet.
Recently considered by Korea JoongAng Daily as this summer’s must-see movie, “Beauty Inside” is set to open August 20.
