[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!!

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.

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.

[20150820] Yoo Yeon Seok Is NewsCulture’s Selected ‘Actor of The Week’

NewsCulture, one of Korea’s news portals, released an article on 20 August 2015 to announce their selection of Yoo Yeon Seok as the ‘Actor of the Week’. Dubbed as an actor with various facial expressions, Yoo Yeon Seok is praised for his versatility in acting cold and warm characters. He is considered as part of the new emerging melodrama hero in Korean cinema.

In his latest film, Yoo Yeon Seok plays Woo Jin, a man who changes face everytime he wakes up. Thanks to his melodical and warm tone in narrating the movie, he tied all different Woo Jin together. Yoo Yeon Seok managed to live up to Director Baek’s expectation in maximazing the dramatic element of the movie with his appearance, acting skill and voice tone.

So who would have guessed that Yoo Yeon Seok was actually nervous when doing the narration? During the Beauty Inside Press Screening, he revealed that he was very worried to whether he could bridge different actors and actresses together. He is thankful that all of them demonstrated wonderful acting which implies to the one that eventually made his narration work.

Prior to his breakthrough role as Chilbong on Reply 1994, Yoo Yeon Seok was dubbed as the most hated man thanks to his role as Suzy’s playboy sunbae in Architecture 101. He went on a killing  sphree toward other nation’s little sisters such as Park Bo Young and Park Shin Hye in Werewolf Boy and The Royal Tailor respectively. No wonder that NewsCulture considers him as the nation’s little sister killer. He finally made a hattrick in killing 3 nation’s little sisters!

When it comes to warm character, Yoo Yeon Seok has proven that he can act as convincingly. He captured so many hearts – and broke them at the same time – in his well-loved character, Chilbong. YeoNiverse is forever thankful to Yoo Yeon Seok for breathing life and so much love to Chilbong. He is our forever our most favorite baseball player on universe.

In his first ever leading role in drama, Yoo Yeon Seok was challenged to bring the warm and cozy feeling to ‘Baek Geun Woo’. Did he make it? We are nodding in agreement with NewsCulture. Yoo Yeon Seok managed to make audience cheering for Baek Geun Woo despite all the frustation and ball of anger toward his character. And thanks to his visual image, Baek Geun Woo is considered as a flower boy chef.

[20150703] (News article + Netizen comments) Actor Yoo Yeon Seok’s variation of roles are received favorably


Regardless of what genre and what character he will portray, Yoo Yeon Seok’s moves are grabbing attention.

Yoo Yeon Seok has given an enthusiastic performance as the innocent and lovely Baek Geon Woo in the recent MBC Wed-Thu drama “Warm and Cozy”. His acting spectrum has expanded once again.

The public started to recognise him as “Chilbongie” in “Reply 1994” (2013). Yoo Yeon Seok potrayed a Seoul-born baseball player who is perfect in all specs such as appearance, household, personality, sense and loves the woman earnestly. Because of this role, he took the position as women’s ideal.

Yoo Yeon Seok who comes out like a comet and sways women’s hearts actually has a heavy filmography. After 10 years of becoming an actor, he received spotlight once again. He has challenged various characters. It provokes the public’s curiousity on which character that has same personality as him. He has a gentle face, but he could portray his character as a Gangnam oppa in the film “Architecture 101” and an evil character Jitae in the movie “A Werewolf Boy” perfectly. Because of that, he received favorable criticism.

His works in historical genre definitely looks impressive too. He acted as a cool headed scholar who has a strong sense of honor in drama “Gu Family Book” and he brought forth the King “wangme patale” (king + femme fatale) charms in the movie “Royal Tailor”.

Not only that, he also appeared as a researcher in movie “Whistle Blower” and as a wealthy guy who has deadly charms in the recently released film “Perfect Proposal”. He displays variable transformations with new characters in various genres.

He then gives the light into unprecedented romantic comedy male lead character in the recent drama, “Warm and Cozy”. Yoo Yeon Seok started his debut as an actor by appearing as younger version of Yoo Ji Tae in movie “Old Boy”. He strengthens his solid acting ability and steadily develops as an actor.

Yoo Yeon Seok’s variation of characters is dynamic. Whatever the character is, he digested it naturally with his own color and his acting spectrum keeps on going broader. He has fulfilled his projects in thriller, melo, historical, and also romantic comedy genre, on small and big screens. He attempts new variations in every project and every character so we are excited which steps in the future he will take.

Meanwhile, after finishing MBC Wed-Thu drama “Warm and Cozy”, he is scheduled to join movie “Hae-eo-hwa”.

Netizen comments to the article :

1. [+1,906 , -74] Yoo Yeon Seok is so charming. He acts well too. It’s good!

2. [+1,546 , -66] Please act in a romantic comedy once again~ You match romantic comedy more than historical dramas!! (it doesn’t mean he is not suitable for historical dramas X)

3. [1,471 , -56] Yoo Yeon Seok is cute, I know he is mild mannered, his gentleness is sexy!! ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [1,391 , -52] I enjoyed watching Warm and Cozy!!

5. [1,224 , -53] He is charming. I watched Warm and Cozy, he really gives a good feeling ㅠ_ㅠ

[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.

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!

[ENG SUBBED] Section TV – Yoo Yeon Seok cut (20150118)

Back in January, Section TV managed to interview Yoo Yeon Seok while he was having his Beanpole Accessory 2015 S/S collection photoshoot.

He looked so beautiful and attractive in this particular interview (that hair, those shirts and that smile!) and the MC totally fangirled over him, too. Well, who wouldn’t, no? 😛

Since he played quite a number of athletic characters in the past, he was asked on how he manage his body figure and fangirl MC even suggested for him to act as a bodybuilder next time (for selfish interest), lol.

He was also asked whether one-sided love portrayals is his forte, his friendship with fellow Reply 1994 and Youth Over Flowers cast Son Ho Jun (those cuties!) and was embarrassed when his bad selfie skill was highlighted by the MC, haha.

So, here is the overdue subbed video (sorry for the delay).

Watch it HERE
