Yoo Yeon Seok to Cameo in Movie ‘Chunmong’

It is very likely that we need to wait 84 years before Yoo Yeon Seok makes a drama comeback.

Simply because Yoo Yeon Seok just signed up to cameo in a movie by Director Zhang Lu titled ‘Chunmong’.  The movie has its leading lady in actress Han Ye Ri whose character is loved by three different men. All three of them love her and try to win her heart yet they rely on each other for comfort and support.

In ‘Chunmong’, Yoo Yeon Seok will cameo as a man with mysterious aura and cold eyes who just so happens to be strikingly handsome. Han Ye Ri’s character is said drawn by the coldness in his eyes and soon the three men are jumping to hate Yoo Yeon Seok’s character.

Yoo Yeon Seok will not be the only actor to cameo in the movie. Shin Min Ah (Oh My Venus), Jo Dal Hwan (The Magician), Kim Tae Hoon (One More Happy Ending) and Kim Eui Seong (Six Flying Dragon) will make their cameo appearance as well.

Just a trivia for all YeoNizens, Yoo Yeon Seok and Han Ye Ri as well as Kim Tae Hoon were spotted in the same event back in 2013. The three of them participated in the 7th Green Ribbon Marathon at Seoul World Cup Stadium in September 2013. Want some proof? Here we go ~

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.

[20151008] Yoo Yeon Seok is in talks to join Lee Seon Kyun in a new movie “King’s Case Files”

 photo comic-1.jpg

Yoo Yeon Seok is being cast for a new (period) movie! The casting news was out today and it was stated that he is still considering the offer to join Lee Seon Kyun in the crime solving movie that is based on a comic titled “King’s Case Files”.

An excerpt from Soompi news :

It has been confirmed by several insiders in the movie industry that Yoo Yeon Seok has been casted in the movie “The King’s Case Diary (working title),” alongside Lee Sun Gyun who was casted earlier on. “The King’s Case Diary” is originally a comic book, written by Heo Yoon Mi. It is about a king and his officer who are great detectives and solve mysteries together.

Lee Sun Gyun will play the part of the king, while Yoo Yeon Seok will be his officer. Joo Jin Mo is currently being considered for the part of the villain.

Dramabeans has previously covered on Lee Seon Kyun casting news and there a little bit more info on the movie and the characters :

The original manhwa by Heo Yoon-mi is a fictionalized retelling of King Yejong, who was the 8th king of Joseon. His father was Sejo and he only ruled for 14 months, and was barely 18 years old when he became king. The manhwa is about Yejong and his palace historian sidekick sneaking off to solve mysteries together, and is described as a funny detective action series.

Also according to Dramabeans, the officer’s character “is hilariously nicknamed “carp poop” because he follows the king around like a carp trails its poop behind it”. Lol the character sounds so cute already. If Yoo Yeon Seok takes up the offer, he’ll start filming the movie starting from April 2016.

Take a look at more of the comic’s arts of the King and his Carp Poop below~

‘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.”
