Unlike other singing competition, this show is not about eliminating candidates and searching for the best singer out there. It is more about a friendly competition in creating children’s songs together where children take part in a festival environment. According to the chief producer Kim Yong-beom during press conference, the first-place team receives a prize from the Education minister and a scholarship.

Producer Kim also said an interesting tidbit on the selection of Yoo Yeon Seok, Park Bo Young and Tiger JK as mentors. Quoted from an article by Koreaherald, MNet brought in the three celebrities because they show sincere interest in music and the children, both on and off camera. Looking at the photos shared by Lee Harang and Hong Eui Hyun, MNet’s claim is not too far off. Outside WEKID and off camera, Yoo Yeon Seok invited his team members to his musical, ‘Man Who Walks Through Doors’ and made time to take picture together. Check out their photos below:

Today, I went to see ‘Man Who Walks Through Walls’, teacher Yoo Yeon Seok is the best 👍👍….

[WEKID] Introducing Teacher Yoo Yeon Seok

After briefly telling the whole wide world just how Yoo Yeon Seok is defeated by the children, WEKID makes sure that we are now properly introduced to the so-called innocent pacifist  teacher.

“If I have problem with children, I think I’ll solve it with communication. Won’t it be settled? Hahaha”

“An innocent pacifist Yoo Yeon Seok”, who believes that any problem can be solved with calm conversation.

A Jinju boy who is also a former choir member when he was young. He has been working actively on screen and now, in musical stage where he has to sing 29 songs. A music gangster who is  full of twist, Yoo Yeon Seok!

A pacifist who is confident that any problem can be solved with communication and serious problem can be settled by “role playing”; a huge test approaches him.

Unexpected situation happened. Can he peacefully manage 18 kids who keep making troubles with communication and role playing methods? Or maybe that day will become the day when Yoo Yeon Seok who lives as a pacifist finally exploded?

Yoo Yeon Seok is one of the teachers in WEKID alongside Park Bo Young and Tiger JK. In the second preview featuring Park Bo Young, we are shown the striking difference in the children’s response to Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Bo Young. While Park Bo Young managed to grab the attention of the children to the point that they won’t even want to let her go, Yoo Yeok Seok stands at the opposite end.

Question is, will their method of teaching bring any difference to the children’s performance on stage? Or will we ever get to see the pacifist shoulder gangster explode?

Get the answer in the show’s first broadcast on 18 February, 9.40 PM KST.


WEKID facebook official page spoils us more by sharing the before-and-after picture of Yoo Yeon Seok. Meaning, before he became the teacher (awwww.. ) and after he became one. kekekekeke..

[20160205] Teacher Yoo Yeon Seok Is Defeated by the Children in ‘WEKID’ Preview

If you think that Yoo Yeon Seok will have a walk in the park during the shooting of MNet’s new music show ‘WEKID’, then think again.

In the show’s preview released on 5 February, it’s pretty obvious that the children was excited to have a handsome teacher at first. But seconds later, they ignored him completely. When he asked the children to concentrate for 5 minutes, that plea was ignored as well. The children kept on asking him to gift them present. The kids are also quite oblivious of his instruction to stop moving when he claps his hand.

He retreated from the class sweating, a clear sign of struggle and to some extent, defeat. Definitely, whatever child psychology theory he presented to the staff that earned him ‘child expert label’ went to drain in real life. Yet, the kids are shown performing very well on stage, even brought Yoo Yeon Seok to tears.

Yoo Yeon Seok to Mentor Children in MNet’s Music Show “WE KID”

Yoo Yeon Seok, along with actress Park Bo Young and rapper Tiger JK, is confirmed to join MNet’s new music show titled ‘We Kid’ as a permanent mentor.

Yoo Yeon Seok personally announced his participation in the show through an instagram post on 01 February 2016. He posted a cheerful photo of himself with Park Bo Young and Tiger JK.

“We’re… having a child!”^^ #WEKID first recording!!!💕 #YooYeonSeok #ParkBoYoung #TigerJK

Yoo Yeon Seok will act as the children’s mentor in creating a trendy and unique musical stage. According to Kim Young Bum who is in charge of directing ‘We Kid’, Yoo Yeon Seok was chosen because he is seen as a talented actor who has shown outstanding performances in drama, film and even musical. As someone who also shows great interest in child psychology, he is a perfect fit for ‘We Kid’.

Yoo Yeon Seok himself reveals that he learned about the use of play (theater) as child psychological therapy in the past. He sees that a child’s behavior is very much influenced by the way he was raised. For his villain acting gig, he also learned that there must be some trauma involved if a child behaved badly. Therefore, he considers listening to children as a way to understand them and to solve their concern.

With Yoo Yeon Seok on board, the show officially enters production with another surprise. Each mentor receives support from another star who happens to be close to them in real life. Yoo Yeon Seok is joined by Baro, Park Bo Young with Lee Kwang Soo, and Tiger JK with wife, Yoon Mi Rae. Each mentor will team up with a professional music composer. Yoo Yeon Seok and composer Yoon Il Sang join forces to make a ‘sweet & hitmaker bro’ team.
