Dreams do come true, that’s what we believe here in YeoNiverse.
For the past few months, our collective dream of seeing Yoo Yeon Seok in a hit drama has finally came true. His drama, Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, is undisputedly one of the biggest hits in 2016. His acting is also receiving recognition as he received the Excellence Award for Genre Drama Category at 2016 SBS Drama Awards. Congratulations, Dr. Kang, eh Yoo Yeon Seok!!
He later went to Instagram to express his happiness from receiving the award, his gratitude toward fans, and new year wishes.
“I receive a very big award thanks to the fans who always love and cheered me on. Thank you and I love you. I’m starting 2017 feeling so happy. Everybody be well and Happy New Year.”
For Yoo Yeon Seok and his co-star Seo Hyun Jin, 2016 SBS Drama Awards gave them two more awards. The first one is ‘Best Couple Award’ that they received alongside Lee Jun Ki and IU (Moon Lovers) as well as Lee Minho and Jeon Ji Hyun (Legends of the Blue Sea).
When Yoo Yeon Seok was asked how he felt about receiving the award, it’s almost unbelievable yet amazing how he could give off a cheesiest possible response. He said (as quoted from ‘unstoppable sun‘) :
Ours is a medical drama so we really weren’t expecting anything. Having received this…we’re always at the hospital in gowns filming, but seeing Hyunjin-sshi in a dress, it feels like I’ll go into arrest. Sunbae, I think I need CPR!
His comment is sooooo cheesy, everyone burst out laughing and poor Seo Hyun Jin had to show her curled fingers to the audience. Seo Hyun Jin literally gave the same response to Yoo Yeon Seok’s cheesy lines, both in the drama and real life. Meanwhile, we had a collective meltdown in embarrassment here in YeoNiverse and immediately wished that he just go home. kekekeke..
As if Yoo Yeon Seok’s remark is not embarassing enough, SBS tried to up the cheesiness level with their Best Kiss Award that is based on votes casted by 100 idols. The winner is none other than our beloved romantic doctors who set fires on our scenes with their sizzling chemistry and kiss scenes.
With this award, are the idols giving a cue to ‘more steamy kisses in the future’? muahahahahaha…
It seems that their kiss scenes are so electric that the two were even asked on the same thing during on red carpet. Got to love Seo Hyun Jin’s response as she admitted to enjoying it. Meanwhile, Yoo Yeon Seok said he was actually nervous about kissing in doctor white gown. Well, at least he later told the world that it is not illegal to kiss in the white gown.ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
All in all, Yoo Yeon Seok in ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ is the best 2016 could bring us. Dream do come true and here’s to more success for Yoo Yeon Seok and all YeoNizens in 2017.
Happy New Year!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!!
