[20160210] Yoo Yeon Seok Made Cameo Appearances in Play ‘Death of A Salesmam’

Yoo Yeon Seok made a comeback on theater stage through cameo performances in Lee Soon Jae’s commemorative play ‘Death of A Salesman’. He acted as ‘Howard’ in the play’s two scheduled performances on 10 and 11 February 2017 at the Uijeongbu Arts Center.

Yoo Yeon Seok played a role of ‘Howard Wagner’, boss of the company where Lee Soon Jae’s character (Willy Loman) is working at. Howard was actually named by Willy, but he later fires Willy as he sees him as liability and ignores the contribution Willy has made to the company for many years. Howard is portrayed as a character who is extremely proud of his wealth.

Yoo Yeon Seok brings out his ‘Howard’ on stage in a clean-cut suit, sleek hairstyle and glasses. KingKong by Starship Entertainment, that’s how his agency is now called, released a series of Yoo Yeon Seok’s photos of during the rehearsal. He can be seen studying his script and practiced on stage.

Being on the same stage with Lee Soon Jae must have been a very special gift for Yoo Yeon Seok. He has been very open about his admiration toward Lee Soon Jae who is also his professor at Sejong University. OSEN reported that Yoo Yeon Seok feels very grateful for the opportunity to act along side Lee Soon Jae. He feels that he is being reborn as a true performer after this play. He is very happy even though he appeared only in the second act for 10 minutes in this 3-hour musical.

The play ended with an applause to all performers, and OSEN noted that the role of Howard is particularly important as he shows Willy’s situation accurately. Howard must be played with a perfect gesture and the newspaper praises Yoo Yeon Seok for nailing the role. He managed to draw the audience deeper into the play while maintaining his unique performance.

Congratulation for your successful performance, Yoo Yeon Seok!! Cannot wait to see you again on another stage.

[20160116] Instagram Update: Yoo Yeon Seok Bids Farewell to His Kang Dong Joo

They said good things eventually come to an end. So does the role of doctor Kang Dong Joo to Yoo Yeon Seok. As ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is nearing its end, his time playing doctor Kang is also numbered. This role must be a sentimental one for him as he took to instagram to share a farewell melancholic message to his white doctor gown and name tag.

English translation:

I’ve been wearing this doctor’s gown for 4 months. Today is the last time… ㅜㅠ #DoldamHospital #GeneralSurgeon #KangDongJoo

Not long after he posted the sentimental note, Yoo Yeon Seok shared another photo on instagram to thank actress Park Shin Hye the coffee truck she sent to his drama set.

English translation:

Queen, thanks~^^ The support warmed the hearts during the last shooting. Shin Hye ya thank you~~ Romantic Doctor + Doctors = Romantic Doctors

Wonder why he called address Park Shin Hye as ‘queen’ on his instagram post? If your minds immediately wander to ‘Royal Tailor’ movie, you will surely get a right answer. In the movie, Park Shin Hye plays Yoo Yeon Seok’s queen whose relationship to the King turned bitter at the end. Luckily, Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye continues to be good friend long after their movie ended. She previously showed her support to Yoo Yeon Seok by attending his musical ‘Man Who Walk Through Walls’. Oh, let’s not forget that our Teacher Kim is also in ‘Royal Tailor’ as the King’s tailor.

Conflict and blood aside, the best thing about episode 16 and 17 are the heart thumping scenes of our Dong Joo and Seo Jung. The two lovebirds still tried to hide their blooming romance but heck, who are they going to fool? We are talking about peculiar people in Doldam hospital where everyone has the ability to see right through some facades.

Good news is, love wins over pizza and we got to see our couple acts like they’re in a relationship. So, all we can ask is, “Sunbae, how does resting your head on Dong Joo’s pacific ocean wide shoulder feel?”

[20161231] Yoo Yeon Seok Brought Home Prizes from SBS Drama Awards

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.

English translation:

“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).

 photo SAF8.jpg

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..

 photo SAF13.jpg

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!!
