[Eng translation] Yoo Yeon Seok’s hand written letter to fans at 2018 All About YOO fanmeeting.

New Doc 2018-10-15 18.21.56_1

Hello. It’s Yoo Yeon Seok.

Once again, I get to write a short letter to you (fans) for this Fan Meeting. This is the only way that I can repay and reply to all of you fans who have written me letters in the past.

When you all hold this letter in your hands and are reading it, I suspect that the fan meeting would be over and you all would be returning home in the evening. How was today? Did you enjoy yourselves? ^^

As this fan meeting is to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of my debut, and I think it will be memorable as a more meaningful and joyful occasion because of it.

To be honest, I completely forgot that it was my 15 year anniversary, and I just concentrated on filming my drama, until one day a fan congratulated me on my 15 year debut anniversary. Because of that I felt a strange sense of responsibility. At the filming location, I felt always a sense of newness, unfamiliarity and difficulty. Because of this, I had forgotten that it had been such a long time since my debut.

But now I go to the shoots, and find that my juniors increase one by one, and the days in which I get called a senior at these shoots become more and more frequent. And because of this I feel a greater sense of responsibility and burden that I have to carry as an actor.

I felt once again, that the reason that I could continue on as an actor like this, was due to the unconditional love and support from all of you fans. Thoughts of you fans who steadfastly loved me came to mind. Although there were times when I showed you guys an unsatisfactory side of me, you all send such words of encouragement that it gave me so much strength to continue.

If I look back, it could be said that 15 years is a long time, but if you look at my future as an actor, you could also think that it’s not such a long time in that perspective.

Please continue to send love to me and have great expectations for me as I continue into the future. In return, I will continue my best efforts to be that actor that through the long term that you follow my career, continues to show something new and different.

Once again, I thank you for your precious steps in coming here.

I love you ❤

The actor who loves all of you
Yoo Yeon Seok

(Quote) Yoo Yeon Seok, on having fish dishes with Seo Hyun Jin and Jin Kyung for health

When shooting for a drama, it is essential to stay physically fit. While filming for this drama, Yoo Yeon Seok has been making efforts to take care of his health and stamina. During ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ filming, Yoo Yeon Seok has developed eye twitching condition due to the accumulated fatigue that he eventually found an Oriental Medical clinic (to treat it).

The Oriental Medical clinic was recommended by Seo Hyun Jin and Jin Kyung. Because he takes herbal medicine a dietary control is essential to him. Together with Seo Hyun Jin and Jin Kyung the Oriental Medical clinic siblings(?), they ate fish dishes for health. ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim’ filming set was in Paju. The three of them went to ‘conquer’ all of the restaurants that serve fish dishes in Paju.

“Hyun Jin and Jin Kyung sunbae have stomach problem and both of them went to the same Oriental Medical clinic, and they recommended me the same clinic when I had eye twitching symptoms. When eating herbal medicines, you have to take care of your diet like not eating meat or flour. As a result, the three of us have the same diet. All we could eat were fish and vegetable dishes. We mainly look for restaurants that serve fish dishes. As we ate all varieties of fish dishes like grilled, sushi and steamed fish, we regained our energy.”

(Quote) Yoo Yeon Seok, on wanting to travel alone to think and ask questions to himself

Although his dream was to become an actor since he was young and that he is steadily building his filmography regardless of box-office record, he is questioning himself endlessly.

Before deciding on his next project, he will travel alone to give time to himself, in order to question his own self.

“I’ll quietly go to Vietnam after finishing my pictorial schedule. I’ve been to other countries in Southeast Asia but I have never been to Vietnam so I want to go there.

There are a few quiet places in Vietnam. I’ll go there in order to think (to myself) again” he said. (Yoo Yeon Seok’s interview with Asia Globe, January 2017)

(Quote) To you, what kind of actor Yoo Yeon Seok is?

“I’ve found the answer as to the question of ‘a good actor, the best actor or the needed actor’.

When I first started acting, I worked hard to become a good actor. I tried my best to hear that “There’s a new actor who is really good at acting”. When I got a lot of love, I was greedy at that time to be the best. Now I want to become an actor that is necessary for every kind of work.

If I ever decide to quit acting, I want to hear others’ saying, “I wish to see his acting again.” I also want to become an actor that staffs and producers need. I am not sure whether it will be feasible or not, but I thought of becoming an actor that is necessary.” (Yoo Yeon Seok’s interview with Chosun Ilbo, January 2017)
