Admission wise, Haeeohwa sadly perfoms rather poorly in the box office. It stays in the Top 5 but raked in only 265 thousand admissions in the five days since its premiere.

[Interview] Yoo Yeon-seok, “Did I keep my promise to never change?”

 photo hancinema1.jpg

Yoo Yeon-seok‘s mellow is sink or swim. It’s either purely innocent or cruelly mean. If “Old Boy” and “Answer Me 1994” are the first, then “Architecture 101” and “Perfect Proposal” are the latter.

“Loves, Lies” is somewhere in between them. “Loves, Lies” is the story of the final gisaengs So-yool (Han Hyo-joo) and Yeon-hee (Cheon Woo-hee) who dreamt of being singers. They meet the greatest song writer of the time Yoon Woo (Yoo Yeon-seok).

“Some ask if Yoon Woo is the bad guy. The part which Yoo Woo falls for Yeon-hee was edited out. Yeon-hee says something to Yoon Woo as she’s being hit by her father, “Selling his daughter for some money, that is the true Joseon. I don’t relate to the song, “A Joseon Mind”.

Yoo Yeon-seok is working with Han Hyo-joo for the second time since “Beauty Inside”. He also met Cheon Woo-hee in the same movie.

“I enjoyed working with Han Hyo-joo in “Beauty Inside”. However, we didn’t meet for a long time because there were 21 Woo-jins. I was happy to meet her in Loves, Lies once again. Cheon Woo-hee was also in “Beauty Inside” but we acted the same character so we never overlapped”.

Yoo Yeon-seok took on the role of Yoo Ji-tae‘s younger version in the movie “Old Boy” and left a strong impression but he was in the slumps. He then continued to star in other films but he didn’t show much impact. However, he started to come back to life with “A Werewolf Boy”. “Answer Me 1994” put him in the peak of his career.

Yoo Yeon-seok had said he was afraid he might change because of the popularity.

“I can’t say I didn’t change at all, but I’m not negative. I try to be positive and I always will be. The pressure I get from the fame has made me responsible. I didn’t believe in success before but now more is expected of me so I need to change according to demands”.

Still, Yoo Yeon-seok doesn’t want his passion and emotions to be tainted. He wants acting to be a part of his life and not just a job. “I might be in the slumps at one point but when acting becomes a part of my life, it might get easier”.

‘Beauty Inside’ tells a love story of a man named Woo Jin who metaphors into different faces, ages, gender and even race each time he wakes up. He falls at the first sight on Yi Soo,  a furniture sales person. Love should be a happy feeling but for Yi Soo and Woo Jin, love can be complicated. Why? You may check out the movie review by Kooriyuki on her blog.

It is said that 123 actors / actresses played the male lead character Woo Jin and are you curious on how much the fee was paid for the 123 actors/actresses who played the male lead character Woo Jin?

An Ilgan Sports article was published on August 26 that discuss particularly about this matter! Check it out the article as translated by our translator, @rynnpeace

How much is the fee of 123 actors/actresses who played the male lead character Woo Jin?

Movie The Beauty Inside told the story about the love of Woo Jin, a furniture designer whose face will change every morning when he wakes up. The responsibility to create a unique character is handled by no less than 123 person who played the role of male lead Woo Jin. We are curious how the fee of a tremendous corps of 123 actors/actresses is managed.

Of course, among 123 actors/actresses, not everyone has dialogues or acts in scenes that have impact. There are 21 main actors & actresses who played as Woo Jin : Kim Dae Myeong, Do Ji Han, Bae Seong Woo, Park Shin Hye, Lee Beom Soo, Park Seo Joon, Kim Sang Ho, Cheon Woo Hee, Ueno Juri, Lee Jae Joon, Kim Min Jae, Lee Hyeon Woo, Jo Dal Hwan, Lee Jin Wook, Hong Da Mi, Seo Kang Joon, Kim Hee Won, Lee Dong Wook, Go Ah Sung, Kim Joo Hyeok, Yoo Yeon Seok. If we only see the casting, this movie has equal level as masterpiece but the performance fee is not very surprising. It’s because the fee of one actor that was in a top class category is divided for 123 person. Usually, a top class star who plays the male lead in commercial movie accepts about 500-600 millions won as his guarantee.

Between 123 person, 102 cast who only appeared in one scene each acted with no guarantee and accepted fee as movie extras. Yong Film’s side said “Those cast are agency people who appeared as volunteers. Same with movie staff. The others’ fee is calculated depending on the scene and they were paid as much as movie extras’ fee.”

The fee of 21 major actors/actresses who played as Woo Jin is measured by the portion of scenes. Among 21 person, the actor who accepted the highest fee is Yoo Yeon Seok, the one who is entrusted with narration responsibility and also acted as Woo Jin. It is reported that he was paid 70% from the usual fee he received for his movie guarantees. Except for Yoo Yeon Seok, the other 20 actors/actresses were paid from 10 million won to 50 million won. Seo Kang Joon, Jo Dal Hwan, Kim Hee Won’s shooting placed didn;t change a lot and the actors/actresses who participated in 1-2 scenes are paid relatively lower.

Yong Film’s side said “The total fee of 123 person is as much as the fee of top class male lead in a movie. The fee also similar with the fee of female lead Han Hyo Joo who played as Yi Soo.”

“Director Baek and shooting team, producer and all related actors and actresses met and acted together with good will. More than acting fee, if we can do a good project together, it leave a great meaning. Because Woo Jin is a unique character, since pre-production we thought a lot about the acting fee. But the actors and actressed who acted as Woo Jin have given consideration too so the estimated fee can match up with them.”
