Yoo Yeon Seok, in particular, joins the cast and Director Baek on August 30. Still in his ‘stache and (slightly) wild hair-ed mode, he greets the fans in his signature white dress shirt and dark blue jeans. We, in YeoNiverse, are lovin this simple clean look. White surely works the best for him.

‘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.”

[20140929] Yoo Yeon Suk, Lee Jin Wook, and Park Seo Joon in Talks to Star Alongside Han Hyo Joo in “Beauty Inside”

Actors Yoo Yeon Suk, Lee Jin Wook, and Park Seo Joon may be likely to accompany actress Han Hyo Joo in an upcoming movie.

On September 29, a representative of the production team for the movie “Beauty Inside” revealed to OSEN, “Yoo Yeon Seok, Lee Jin Wook, and Park Seo Joon are positively reviewing the offer and are in discussion for casting.”

The rep also explained, “The three people will be portraying one character in different ways. However, the specific details of the role are in the stages of adjustment.”

“Beauty Inside” is a movie that tells the love story of a man who changes into a different person every time he wakes up. It has also been said that Han Hyo Joo will be taking on the lead female character who falls in love with this man who constantly changes into another person.

Meanwhile, the cast and crew of “Beauty Inside” will jump into filming later this year.

Lifted from soompi

Not a bad line up although Han Hyo Joo is not very popular in Korea right now. As for Yeon Seok, we know the role is pretty much appealing and challenging but he needs to go back to the small screen. If he takes this up, it’s the fifth movie in 2014!
