[NOTICE] (by King Kong by Starship) New guidelines as to Yoo Yeon Seok’s way back from K-GGLAM performance greetings.

[T/N: 퇴근길 (toegeungil) literally means ‘way back from work’ but in this context, it refers to meeting and greeting Yoo Yeon Seok after show when he’s about to go home after finishing his musical performance of the day (usually fans will wait and meet the musical actors when they’re about to go back home) ]

[#NOTICE #유연석 #YooYeonSeok #AGentlemansGuide #waybackfromwork]

Hello, this is King Kong by Starship.

We are thankful for the fans’ hot interest and love towards the musical 《A Gentleman’s Guide》 starring Actor Yoo Yeon Seok, and we hereby are listing a few guidance for all of us to follow during the ‘way back from work’ greeting.

Due to the increasingly cold weather, difficulties to get the transportations after the late performance as well as safety concerns, (Actor Yoo Yeon Seok) is going to give only brief greetings after the performances on weekdays and Saturdays of the weekends that have 2 performances. We ask for the fans’ co-operation so that there can be an exchange of warm greetings instead of gifts.

For the weekend’s way back from work greeting, where there are 2 performances on the weekend (Sat/Sun), please take note that it will be on Sunday only.

During the weekend’s way back from work greetings, you can personally hand over your gifts and letters to Mr. Yoo Yeon Seok. During this time, please hand them over in an orderly manner to prevent harm towards those who are around you. (We ask for the fans to give way and be considerate to each other when passing the gifts to ensure everyone’s safety).

* This is the ‘way back from work’ greetings schedule.

11.25 (Sun) 2pm performance /
12.1 (Sat) 3pm performance /
12.16 (Sun) 6pm performance /
12.23 (Sun) 2pm performance
(We will make an announcement for the 4th ticketing later.)

※ In addition to the above schedule, we ask for your understanding that during the after performance greetings on weekdays and Saturdays of the weekends that have 2 performances, (actor Yoo Yeon Seok) will only greet you with brief greetings, and will not accept gifts and letters directly. We would appreciate it for the fans who have prepared gifts and letters to deliver them ㅡ with the actor’s name written on them ㅡ to the ticket booking office or stockroom on the 2nd floor, or to the Theater Information Desk on the 3rd floor or through the receptionist.

We would like to express our gratitude to the fans for supporting Mr Yoo Yeon Seok once again, and we ask for your co-operation and understanding for the sake of everyone’s safety and convenience.

Thank you.

[20140916] Yoo Yeon Seok to Appear in Healing Camp

[#NEWS #YooYeonSeok #HealingCamp #YooYeonSeok]

We are letting you all know of some good news! The actor Yoo Yeon Seok will be taking part in SBS’ s “Healing Camp” tomorrow (17 Sept). The plan is for this to be broadcast on the 29th September!

We wonder what the broadcast will be like! We ask for your great expectations^^

Original Post

Since Healing Camp is well known as a heartfelt and warm show, we truly wonder what kind of stories that Yoo Yeon Seok will be sharing with us. Would there be a little story about him fanboying over actress Sung Yu Ri who happens to be one of the hosts of this show? Or would he tell us more about his personal struggles and behind-the-scene stories in building his stage in Korean entertainment industry? Now it is everybody’s guess.
