‘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.”

[20150806] Yoo Yeon Seok Flutters Hearts During ‘Beauty Inside’ Press Screening and Showcase

Sporting a new look, Yoo Yeon Seok made a public appearance on 3 August 2015 to promote his newest movie, Beauty Inside. First, Yoo Yeon Seok joined co-stars Han Hyo Joo, Chun Woo Hee, Lee Dong Hwi (who shares the picture below) and Park Seo Joon to meet the press at Lotte Cinema.

Following the press screening, news from Nate went online that describes the difference between Park Seo Joon, Lee Jin Wook and Yoo Yeon Seok’s “Woo Jin”. HanCinema translated the original news from Nate and we quoted Yoo Yeon Seok’s part below:

Yoo Yeon-seok is considered as a ‘warm’ Woo-jin. Although Woo-jin changes every day the public wasn’t confused about who he was thanks to Yoo Yeon-seok’s heart and narrations. His melodical voice started the movie and only in the end did he make an appearance. He leaves a strong impression as he is the last one to appear.

The acting of the actors and actresses in this movie is also praised by Munha News journalist, Jeon Yeong Hyeon. The journalist wrote through a post by NEW that “actors and actresses whom we think cannot be seen in one movie, for one character they came together and showed rich acting”. Others are also giving positive reviews of the movie. Are you excited already waiting for this movie to premiere?

Few hours after the press screening, Yoo Yeon Seok greeted the fans who came to Beauty Inside Showcase. He received very warm applause and pretty louder screams when he introduced himself as the actor who plays the last Woo Jin. Gone are the days of unknown for Yeon Seok. Through his official facebook account, Yoo Yeon Seok expresses his happiness of meeting fans again after a long period of not seeing each other.

Acted as the MC of the music showcase is Yoon Jung Shin who sings the main soundtrack of the movie. Lee Dong Wook who was absent from the press screening joined the cast members in the showcase. Yoo Yeon Seok and Lee Dong Wook bantered cutely during the showcase, showing their close relationship as labelmate in KingKong Entertainment.

During the talkshow segment, all cast members were asked to answer YES or NO to few questions. For the first question, MC Yoon asked the cast members whether they feel sexy the moment they woke up. It’s funny to see that Heohwa cast members (YYS,HHJ,CWH) all raised “O” while Park Seo Joon and Lee Dong Wook said no. Yoo Yeon Seok admitted that he is feeling sexy waking up although he played it down later by saying that his body doesn’t look good these days.

For the second question, Yoon Jung Shin asked if they have a weapon to capture the opposite sex’s attention. Yoo Yeon Seok sheepishly raised an “O” and mentioned that he wants to speak in all honesty but he will be in trouble if he does that. He continued on  by saying that he likes to help other people taking picture these days. By doing that, he said that they can grow closer naturally. He mentioned his liking to polaroid and reiterated that he loves to use polaroid because it gives different feeling from photo taken by camera or phone. Since he is currently working in a project (movie Heohwa) together with Han Hyo Joo and Chun Woo Hee, he took pictures of the two actresses in the shooting location using polaroid.

The showcase continued with a game with four lucky audiences who happened to know person named Woo Jin in their life. They were paired with each actor playing Woo Jin to make rhymed sentences using “Hong Yi Soo” as the first syllable of each sentence. Chun Woo Hee couple won the game but was having no luck when it came to winning prize where the actor would do a task as mentioned in the prize board. Yoo Yeon Seok and the audience he was paired with got “back hug” and he did it using only his right hand, fluttering hearts and causing some noises from the roaring audience.

At the end of the showcase, all cast members and Director Baek Jong Yeol sit together on the stage for a group photo. Once again, Yoo Yeon Seok and Lee Dong Wook acted all witty, joined their hand to form a shape of heart. Bromance yo!!

Yoo Yeon Seok is scheduled to join another promo cycle of Beauty Inside by attending the VIP premiere in Yongsan CGV on 12 August 2015 at 8 PM. All the best for the premiere, Yoo Yeon Seok Ssi!!

 photo Beauty Inside Poster4.jpg

[by Sora Ghim] A new person whenever he wakes up, this unique story of a man is a 21-in-1 role which gained attention for its top studded star cast. Upcoming movie ‘Beauty Inside’ held its screening at the ‘68th Cannes International Film Festival’ and has confirmed its release for July 2015.

With news of the movie’s release date, the film also revealed the 21 actors who will play the protagonist Woo Jin. ‘Beauty Inside’ is about one man, Woo Jin, who changes into a different person every day and the woman he loves, Yi Soo. This movie is based on the social film by Intel and Toshiba and is the first ever in the Korean film industry to try a 21 people in 1 role. It raises anticipation for the actors who will play Woo Jin and the various ways they will portray him.

In order, the 21 actors cast in the film are Kim Dae Myeong, Do Ji Han, Bae Sung Woo, Park Shin Hye, Lee Bum Soo, Park Seo Jun, Kim Sang Ho, Chun Woo Hee, Ueno Juri, Lee Jae Joon, Kim Min Jae, Lee Hyun Woo, Jo Dal Hwan, Lee Jin Wook, Hong Da Mi, Seo Kang Joon, Kim Hee Won, Lee Dong Wook, Go Ah Sung, Kim Joo Hyuk, and Yoo Yeon Seok. As much as these actors tried to depict the character, they tried their best to not break the flow of Woo Jin.

The response to ‘Beauty Inside’ at the Cannes International Film Festival is just as hot as the original ‘The Beauty Inside’ had at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. On May 15, the interest in the movie was so great that it filled up all the seats of the screening that was designated for buyers. A representative of NEW stated, “It was favorably received for its new type of romance film and not just buyers but talks of a remake are already underway.” This film will captivate the audience with its fantasy romance.

Meanwhile, this unique film will be released in July. (photo by NEW, Yong Film)

[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!
