Fans are also pempered with the release of Japanese trailer of the movie as well as a dedicated website for the movie.

Yoo Yeon Seok’s Japanese fans will need to wait a little more when it comes to the release of his latest movie “Haeeohhwa”. The movie is slated to air in January 2017 under a title “Kaigo Hana”.

Heartache as Yoo Yeon Seok (almost) bids ‘goodbye’ to his character on Haeeohwa, Kim Yun Woo.

Out of the ordinary, on a fine evening of April 19, around 8 pm KST (and around 4 am San Francisco time), he uploaded in a row 6 pictures of him as Yun Woo onto his instagram in the span of 7 minutes.

5 out of the 6 photos were black and white and all pictures are coming with the same hashtags, #KimYunWoo and #Haeeohwa.

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.

Haeeohwa hwaiting!!

[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”.
