Yoo Yeon Seok, along with actress Park Bo Young and rapper Tiger JK, is confirmed to join MNet’s new music show titled ‘We Kid’ as a permanent mentor.
Yoo Yeon Seok personally announced his participation in the show through an instagram post on 01 February 2016. He posted a cheerful photo of himself with Park Bo Young and Tiger JK.
Yoo Yeon Seok will act as the children’s mentor in creating a trendy and unique musical stage. According to Kim Young Bum who is in charge of directing ‘We Kid’, Yoo Yeon Seok was chosen because he is seen as a talented actor who has shown outstanding performances in drama, film and even musical. As someone who also shows great interest in child psychology, he is a perfect fit for ‘We Kid’.
Yoo Yeon Seok himself reveals that he learned about the use of play (theater) as child psychological therapy in the past. He sees that a child’s behavior is very much influenced by the way he was raised. For his villain acting gig, he also learned that there must be some trauma involved if a child behaved badly. Therefore, he considers listening to children as a way to understand them and to solve their concern.
With Yoo Yeon Seok on board, the show officially enters production with another surprise. Each mentor receives support from another star who happens to be close to them in real life. Yoo Yeon Seok is joined by Baro, Park Bo Young with Lee Kwang Soo, and Tiger JK with wife, Yoon Mi Rae. Each mentor will team up with a professional music composer. Yoo Yeon Seok and composer Yoon Il Sang join forces to make a ‘sweet & hitmaker bro’ team.
‘We Kid’ will premiere on 18 February on TvN and Mnet at 9:40 PM KST. MC Kim Sung Joo (JTBC’s Please take care of my refrigerator) will be hosting. Be sure to catch the seemingly interesting show!
