The good performance continues throughout the weekend, retaining second spot with 279,863 admissions according to the data released by KOBIZ.

In particular, a lot of movie goers praise the sweet and fantastic chemistry between Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won. Want some proofs of their sizzling chemistry?

The movie also set a new buzz surrounding Yoo Yeon Seok as it pops new question whether he fits 맹공남 (maeng gong nam) character like Jae Hyun or 순정남 (sun jong nam) character like chilbong. Jae Hyun, his character in the <Mood of the Day”, is called 맹공남 as he is someone who is not afraid to immediately pursue the women who attracts his heart. Meanwhile, Yoo Yeon Seok’s image has been long attached to Chilbong, a perfect 순정남 character who dedicates his heart to only one woman for very long time. Still armed with good look, broad shoulder and gentle manners, Yoo Yeon Seok’s take on Jae Hyun gives him an unexpected fresh appeal among the audience.

[20160111] Yoo Yeon Seok in Please Take Care of my Refrigerator (+Netizen Comments & Raw Videos)

On Monday night, Ep. 61 of JTBC’s Please Take Care of My Refrigerator episode which Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won guest in was aired (He was in the previous episode as well but the episode was featuring on Moon Chae Won’s fridge)

 photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-45-54.png photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-46-09.png

Moon Chae Won mentioned her hobby of reading palms and the chefs one by one went to get their hands read. She read about “Byeontaesong” line which make a chef perplexed thinking it meant that he is a pervert, lol. But Moon Chae Won explained that “byeontaesong” isn’t really a bad thing like pervert, but more like an emotional factor that makes relationship fun (special thanks to Tokkipanda for the explanation! ♡). And it seems like Yoo Yeon Seok’s “byeontaesong” level was the highest of them all? Ahaha.

Chef Hong asked Moon Chae Won how does Yoo Yeon Seok’s lips feel like and that set both of them awkward. haha. But Moon Chae Won mentioned that she was actually having a cold when they shoot the kissing scenes in Mood of the Day. She had to take medicines, went to do the scene and kiss him, took medicine again, before kissing him again. She didn’t want to pass the cold to Yoo Yeon Seok.

And now onto his fridge!

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-36-25.png

It was fun to see the content of Yoo Yeon Seok’s fridge. It was full, filled with food and love from his mom, his fans as well as Hojun ❤

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-44-41.png photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-41-37.png photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-46-25.png

Look at those side dishes from his mom, healthy drinks and food for his vocal health in cute jars from his fans, and a bottle of Ugandan honey that Hojun gifted him. And as expected of him, his fridge is well organised.

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-53-51.png

Aside from food, he stored polaroid films and facial masks in his fridge too! xD

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-52-25.png

He mentioned that him and Hojun frequently go to each other’s house. When asked about the bottle of Kopke Porto Wine in his fridge, he mentioned that he, Hojun and Baro drank a 3 years old wine together and the boys love it so much. After the drinking session, he went to sleep leaving the boys on their own. Hojun took out the 20 years old wine and they both drank a lot of the wine, without him.  lol

 photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-44-59_1.png

He requested the chefs to prepare dishes that is healthy for the first round, and then dishes that go well with wine for the second round. He loves the first dish not only because it is healthy, but it is also unique. He also commented that he couldn’t guess where the dishes come from. It feels like he’s on travel and that he doesn’t need to travel to taste dishes like that.

Looks like he enjoyed the food prepared by the chefs so much, especially the Onion Chicken Steak by Chef Sam Kim ♡ And he even took polaroid photos of the chefs as well ❤

We are regret to inform that YeoNiverse isn’t planning to sub the episode at the moment 😦 Anyway, here are the raw videos of the episode ~

Also, read the netizen comments on Yoo Yeon Seok guesting on the show!

[Osen via Naver] ‘Refrigerator’ Yoo Yeon Seok, a gentleman’s formula is exactly like this.

1. [+509, -10] I watched Youth Over Flowers and I can believe a man like this if I go anywhere with him and seems like we can go to anywhere…
2. [+438, -5] If people does self management too seriously, they can lost their humanity but he got home education well so his personality is great too.
3. [+361, -10] He did a good job in expressing the taste and it looks that he has good manner too haha hope you keep going and be successful!
4. [+267, -10] As expected from Yoo Yeon Seok…. ㅠ
5. [+231, -4] Chilbongie is so cool 😄…..
6. [+97, -1] Beside the appearance, a man who has personality like him is my ideal type but there aren’t men like him around me…;;;;
7. [+88, -4] Even though he played “yangachi” role in “A Werewolf Boy”, there is no “yangachi” like that. His image changes in every project. He played the younger role of Yoo Ji Tae and like Yoo Ji Tae he did both good and evil roles.
(*Yangachi = the person who behaves very crude, coarse and do evil things like picking a pocket or threaten some younger people for money, acts like a school gang or so)
8. [+85, -3] I watched the broadcast, he really has manner. I can see in his eyes that he respects all the chefs. It’s awesome that he helped chef-nim taking photos too ㅠㅠ.
9. [+75, -1] He is so charming. As expected Chilbong is Yoo Yeon Seok~~
10. [+89, -6] I agree with the title “gentleman’s formula”. So awesome Yoo Actor!

[20160104] Yoo Yeon Seok Talks New Movie, Reply Drama and HoJun at MBC FM4U

Yoo Yeon Seok guested at Park Kyung Lim’s 2 O’Clock Date at MBCmini FM4U on 4 January 2016. For an hour or so, he chattered at great length about many topics including his new movie <Mood That Day>, reply drama, dating styles, and forever-favorite topic, bestfriend Son Ho Jun.

But before all of that, selfie is a must!!

 photo yys on mbc mini.jpg

With his movie’s release scheduled in few weeks time, Yoo Yeon Seok touched upon his character Jae Hyun who abrasively expresses his wish to a woman he just met on a train ride. Jae Hyun’s upfront request surely shocks the leading lady in the movie. In real life, however, Yoo Yeon Seok admitted that he once asked for the number of a lady whom he met for the first time on subway and who happened to sit across him. He said that he got off the same station in time as her and gathered all courage to talk to her. He said to her, “I really like you, so I feel that I would regret not asking you for your contact information”.  He successfully got her contact information and both remain friends to date.

Park Kyung Lim then asked which type of man he is, comparing his previous character “Chilbong” who only has an eye for one women for a very long time and “Jae Hyun” who is a dogged and aggressive man. Quoted from AllKpop, Yoo Yeon Seok muttered that “I’m neither aggressive nor someone who suffers a one-sided love; I just love normally. I’m not a guy who looks on [at a woman I like] without saying anything but that doesn’t mean I say things that will land me a slap on the cheek. I’m more the type to confess if I like someone enough not to regret it.” There you go ladies, the “let’s not regret” motto springs to life again.

Still on <Mood of the Day>, Yoo Yeon Seok was spilling the beans on how Moon Chae Won reacted to his dirty jokes during the filming. The filming requires Yoo Yeon Seok to throw dirty jokes as his character continues to charm Moon Chae Won. Flirtatious mode between the two finally came naturally as  she took his jokes very well.  Yoo Yeon Seok said that the environment of the movie was  pleasant thanks to her.

 photo FM4U2.jpg

Even after a year, a discussion with Yoo Yeon Seok will never be completed without touching upon his breakthrough drama, “Reply 1994”.  He pointed out that while “Reply 1994” focuses more on finding the husband, the current installment “Reply 1988” revolves around family matter. He said that he is having fun watching Reply 1988 albeit his wish to say that his own Reply 1994 is more enjoyable. Yoo Yeon Seok also identifies himself with Taek (Park Bo Gum’s character in Reply 1988), including the way Taek loves someone one-sidedly. He hopes that Taek fulfills the love that he couldn’t (in Reply 1994).

Lucky for Yoo Yeon Seok, Reply 1994 brings him to a new height in his career despite the one-sided love his Chilbong kept for years. Reply 1994 also introduced us to his bestie Son Ho Jun whom he refers as “love”.

Park Kyung Lim: What Son Ho Jun means to Yoo Yeon Seok?
Yoo Yeon Seok: Love..?

At the end of the radio interview, Yoo Yeon Seok asked the audience to look forward to his new movie <Mood of the Day> and showers it with love once it premieres. Together with Park Kyung Lim, he also wishes all listeners a very happy new year.

[20151226] Yoo Yeon Seok’s Interview with M Magazine

What will happen if a successful and playboy sport agent meet a career woman who’s hesitant to entertain his advance during their journey to Busan? You will get the answer once Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won’s new movie <The Mood That Day> premieres on 14 January 2016.

 photo mjoins10.jpg

In the interview for M Magazine, Yoo Yeon Seok explains more about Jae Hyun – his character in <The Mood That Day> – and his interpretation of the character. Jae Hyun, he said, is pretty much at the other side of his breakthrough character “Chilbong” from <Reply 1994, TvN>. Other than talking about Jae Hyun, he also gives more tidbits on his musical which is surprisingly tied with his traveling hobby.

 photo mjoins1.jpg photo mjoins8.jpg photo mjoins7.jpg

When he first met Director Jo, Yoo Yeon Seok was told that a man like him doesn’t have the vibe of a playboy but if he plays such role, women will certainly love him. He laughs and considers it as a compliment. That’s why he wants to bring out the many sides of Jae Hyun that he doesn’t have.

Later on, Yoo Yeon Seok first pointed out that Jae Hyun is a person who’s very open to women when he was asked about the difference between his and Jae Hyun’s personality. Being that very open to women is  exactly the thing that he could not do. He believes that women dislikes guys who’s so easy to ask them out. That’s why he tries to be closer to his castmate (Moon Chae Won) to avoid awkward atmosphere because such scenes are required in the movie.

Then how Yoo Yeon Seok studied for Jae Hyun’s character? He responded while laughing that he did his best. He said that he studied through friends about what women likes or their favorite things. He also contacted friend who is known to be not very shy with women. He also studied from a character called Ari Gold played by Jeremy Piven in an HBO drama called <Entourage>.

In shooting romantic comedy (movie), the relationship between him and Moon Chae Won is important. He was asked how’s the two off the camera. Yoo Yeon Seok spills out that both of them loves eating and had a restaurant tour together during the shooting. They ate 한우삼합 in Jangheung, Jeolla Province and eel shabu shabu in Yeosu.

 photo mjoins3.jpg

The discussion swings to the musical that Yoo Yeon Seok currently headlines, <The Man Who Walks Through Walls>. He reveals that in his early 20s, he travelled to the UK and was captivated by two famous musicals called <Fame> and <Phantom of the Opera>. Both musicals left strong impression on him. He even saved money intended for food to re-watch the musicals. So when the musical offer finally came, he agreed to do it.

So how’s his feeling when he finally performed on a musical stage for the first time? Yoo Yeon Seok admits that he was so nervous he totally forgot his own feeling (that day). He suffered from a sickness called ‘rhinitis’ that caused nasal voice due to runny nose but he is thankful that it didn’t affect his overall performance.

 photo mjoins4.jpg

What 2015 means to Yoo Yeon Seok?

He started off 2015 in the midst of shooting <The Mood that Day>. The shooting started in November 2014 and ran for 3 months. He didn’t stop (shooting) since. He filmed <Beauty Inside> which was opened on 20 August 2015 in the Czech Republic and later a drama <Warm and Cozy>. He exited the drama set only to join the filming of <Heohwa> which will open in 2016. Soon after, he is already busy for musical. Looking back, there was almost no break in between. While looking at his manager who sit on the set, he utters his wish to refrain himself from having a shooting marathon.

In October this year, Yoo Yeon Seok ventures into business with the opening of LUA lounge bar in Itaewon. He shrugs its importance by saying that it is not a big business. He jokingly said that LUA is kind of a hideout for him. But truth to be told, he envisioned LUA as a meeting place where he can invites people who work with him for a discussion. He personally designed the interior and is happy to hear that people like it. Yoo Yeon Seok himself enjoys making things, from cosmetics to furniture. But these days, he is into design interior. He is going through blogs on design interior or reading book to get the hang of it.

 photo mjoins5.jpg

The interview also takes Yoo Yeon Seok to go down the memory lane. Looking back to his 20s, he felt that there was some anxiety if he did not do anything. He also travelled extensively during those period. Not to mention his early career where indie movies became his channel to put a footprint as an actor. One of his early and memorable indie movies is <Re-encounter> which was released in 2011. Now, in his early 30s, he realizes that a pause is also needed in life.

 photo mjoins6.jpg

So what’s next for Yoo Yeon Seok?

The answer is <Heohwa> in which plays Kim Hyun Woo, a composer who is stuck in between two women played by Han Hyo Joo and Chun Woo Hee. He spills out that audience can expect passionate love triangle in the movie.

Special Note: 

To know all Yoo Yeon Seok’s project in 2015, YeoNiverse specially made a special feature “2015 Wrap Up -: Yoo Yeon Seok Screen and Stage Appearances“. So make sure you check it out to get the hang of YeonSeok’s style of living in a fast lane.

[20151222] Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won Set the Screen Ablaze for Vogue Korea

Leave it to Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won in autumn setting to set your screen ablaze.

The ‘Mood That Day’ co-stars collaborated with Vogue Korea for an romantic autumn-themed photoshot. The result is stunning. Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won look marvelous and comfortable together. When Vogue finally released the short video story of the couple, fangirls like us could do nothing but making gif-set that immortalizes many their romantic moments. Let’s be frank, who doesn’t want to read book while leaning onto Yoo Yeon Seok while he covers you with his suit.

 photo yysvogue1.jpg

All that fangirl’s jealosy observation aside, Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won told Vogue how comfortable they are working with each other. They first met, only two of them, in a chinese restaurant. They spent the first meeting eating dumplings and drinking while spending what they called as ‘100 minutes talk’ to discuss the script of their movie. When the camera rolled on for approximately 3 months, both Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won felt like they were having a retreat since they went to several cities to shoot. During this period, Yoo Yeon Seok’s capability in arranging outing like in Youth Over Flowers was proven once again. Yoo Yeon Seok himself said that he made a list of restaurant in town through researches and would go ask Moon Chae Won what she would like to eat. When she finally made her choice, he would be readily make the reservation. In Yeosu for example, they went to have fish (eel) shabu shabu. For him, the time spent eating delicious food and drinking with the Director and Moon Chae Won was really fun. They were so comfortable working with each other, Yoo Yeon Seok even voluntarily made some suggestion to the script without hesitation. Meanwhile, Moon Chae Won was widely known to study her script very carefully throughout the making of this movie.

 photo yysvogue3.jpg

When it comes to the discussion on their character, one cannot escape the fact that many of Yoo Yeon Seok’s past characters prior to <Mood That Day> are not so lucky in love. He was the evil senior in <Architecture 101> and interrupted people’s love in <Werewolf Boy>. In <Reply 1994>, Chilbong  harbored one side love for years. He went on to manipulate the woman who loves him in <Perfect Proposal> while as a king in <Royal Tailor>, he refused to touch his own queen. It all changed in the <Mood That Day> as he was asked by the Director to ‘just be cool’ when it comes to Jae Hyun. As a person type A, Jae Hyun is someone who always think before he acts. That’s why he always try to make himself look ‘cool’ in front of other people. Moon Chae Woon let go of a sigh when she was asked what happen if Jae Hyun came to real life. Surprisingly, Yoo Yeon Seok said acting all cool is the most difficult. Yet, he personally took picture of female staff (his biggest hobby is photography and he’s known of keeping his camera in his car at all times) and gifted it as a set with pepero during Pepero Day on 11 November.

 photo yysvogue2.jpg

For Vogue, Yoo Yeon Seok also talked about his motto in life. His motto is “let’s not regret”. For the past 10 years, he was relatively unknown. He’d rather strive to be a better actor by agreeing on playing different characters in slightly difference genres. But when he looked back to his 20s, he said he did not have any regret. The motto is also what motivated him to take his first professional musical role. He had no background in singing or musical, but he wanted to relive the feeling he had when he was on stage during school play.  He is so happy to recevie ‘passing grade’ from his fans on his musical performance.

Yoo Yeon Seok’s musical performance in ‘Man Who Walk Through Walls’ will run until Valentine Day, 14 February 2016.
