[20160116] Instagram Update: Yoo Yeon Seok Bids Farewell to His Kang Dong Joo

They said good things eventually come to an end. So does the role of doctor Kang Dong Joo to Yoo Yeon Seok. As ‘Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim is nearing its end, his time playing doctor Kang is also numbered. This role must be a sentimental one for him as he took to instagram to share a farewell melancholic message to his white doctor gown and name tag.

English translation:

I’ve been wearing this doctor’s gown for 4 months. Today is the last time… ㅜㅠ #DoldamHospital #GeneralSurgeon #KangDongJoo

Not long after he posted the sentimental note, Yoo Yeon Seok shared another photo on instagram to thank actress Park Shin Hye the coffee truck she sent to his drama set.

English translation:

Queen, thanks~^^ The support warmed the hearts during the last shooting. Shin Hye ya thank you~~ Romantic Doctor + Doctors = Romantic Doctors

Wonder why he called address Park Shin Hye as ‘queen’ on his instagram post? If your minds immediately wander to ‘Royal Tailor’ movie, you will surely get a right answer. In the movie, Park Shin Hye plays Yoo Yeon Seok’s queen whose relationship to the King turned bitter at the end. Luckily, Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye continues to be good friend long after their movie ended. She previously showed her support to Yoo Yeon Seok by attending his musical ‘Man Who Walk Through Walls’. Oh, let’s not forget that our Teacher Kim is also in ‘Royal Tailor’ as the King’s tailor.

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.”

[News] The Royal Tailor Received An Award in New York and Gets Screening Date in Japan

The Royal Tailor snatched another award from the New York Asian Film Festival following an official announcement on 15 July 2015. The movie garnered 94% positive votes to bring home the 2015 Audience Award, beating Korean social drama “Cart”, Korean documentary  “My Love, Don’t Cross That River’ and Cambodian drama “The Last Reel”. The movie is considered by NYAFF as a playful, fresh and daring reinvention of one of Korea’s most conservative film genres which offers a unique blend of fantasy and humor that charmed and moved New York audiences. The so-called Korean fashion-themed historical drama is praised for its stunning insight to Royal costume and textile designed by Jo Sang-gyeong. This is the second audience award for Royal Tailor after receiving one in the 17th Udine Far East Film Festival.

Royal Tailor’s director, Lee Won Suk, was present during the NYAFF and gave an interview in which he talked about working with Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin-Hye. Quoted from the an article released by KDramaStars, Director Lee mentioned that Yoo Yeon Seok is such a hard worker who has a great personality and is very caring. Working with Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye for Royal Tailor was an amazing experience for him. 

After New York, The Royal Tailor is set to charm the Japanese audience following the announcement of nationwide screening starting 7 November 2015. The movie, titled サンイウォン / Saniwon in Japanese, will be screened on CinemArt in Shinjuku, Tokyo and Shinsaibashi, Osaka.

[20150625] On The Set : Updates on Yoo Yeon Seok’s Works

Hello again!

You might be confused why I am here again. Don’t be! I am here for another update series. Slightly different from the other series, “On The Set” particularly features any trivia or update related to Yoo Yeon Seok’s works like movie, drama, variety show or CFs. So, shall we begin?

Yoo Yeon Seok’s latest movie ‘Beauty Inside‘ finally got it’s premiere date. According to the movie distributor NEW, the movie is scheduled for public screening on 20 August 2015. Following the announcement, new poster was revealed alongside some bts photos.

 photo beauty inside new poster.jpg photo btsbeautyinside.jpg

Will Han Hyo Joo get to kiss all the 21 Woo Jin in one movie? Will Yoo Yeon Seok really kiss Han Hyo Joo in the movie? In a month or so, we will get the answer!

Talking about an answer, Yoo Yeon Seok’s previous drama ‘Answer Me 1994’ aka ‘Reply 1994‘ gets another Japanese rerun in Japan’s DLife. The Disney’s owned satelite TV will air the drama from Monday to Friday every 1.30 PM starting today, 25 June 2015. Check the full schedule HERE.

Once Answer Me 1994 completed its second run, Japanese viewers will not be missing Yoo Yeon Seok for too long. KNTV has picked up his recent drama ‘Warm and Cozy‘ to be aired in Japan starting 15 August 2015. The drama will air every Saturday and Sunday. More information on the drama’s airing in KNTV here.

Are you excited for Japanese’s broadcast of ‘Warm and Cozy’ and ‘Reply 1994’?

The latest update came from ‘Royal Tailor‘. The movie had completed it’s run in Korea but it doesn’t stop them from releasing a video commentary featuring its leading casts including Go Soo, Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Shin Hye. The video commentary was featured on MBC’ Let’s Go! Video Travel on 21 June 2015 and has Yoo Yeon Seok – Park Shin Hye – Lee Yubi acting all cute behind the scene.

Royal Tailor DVD is now on sale so if you are a diehard fan of this movie or one of its casts, you can find it on various stores.

Guess that’s all I got for you today. ‘On The Set’ might not get a regular date like ‘Around The Net’ but hopefully it will since Yoo Yeon Seok’s eyes are pretty glued to Chungmuro. He has one movie completed with Moon Chae Won, ‘The Mood That Day‘ and he soon will enter the production of ‘Heohwa‘ with Beauty Inside’s co-star Han Hyo Joo.

I am signing off for now. See ya next time!

[20150520] ‘Beauty Inside’ Is Set To Be Released In July

 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)
