Cosmopolitan Korea had a pictorial and an interview with Yoo Yeon Seok for its January 2016 issue. YeoNiverse is now presenting to you the summary of a few of his interview answers (but not in order) for you to read ❤
A man who works tirelessly throughout the year. A man who choose work over rest. A man who wants to concentrate on himself than any other. That man is actor Yoo Yeon Seok and he is about to welcome his first movie in 2016, <The Mood That Day>.
Q: You have been working continuously the last few years. You did dramas and movies one after another. And when you actually have a chance to take a breath, still you said that you want to do a musical. Somewhat it makes Yoo Yeon Seok as a person who works without a break.
In his answer Yoo Yeon Seok said he’s always yearning to do stage performances. He said he can’t forget the positive energy that he got when he was doing performance at school. And it’s not easy to have the opportunity to do full-scale acting on the stage.
Q: I’m so curious so I watched your musical “The Man Who Passed through the walls”. But I’m surprised. The song is well composed and the diction is great.
Yoo Yeon Seok said he is so thankful for the praise. He said actually he is not a person who can brag about his singing skill. “Compared with other musical actors/actresses, I’m nothing. I just thought that I have to deliver the dialogues and the feeling of the character. So more than singing, I put the character Dutilleul’s feeling into the melody.”
Q: But you must be confident in singing to declare that you want to challenge the musical
Yoo Yeon Seok answered that musical was his hobby. He didn’t do it because he got special training. “There are some musical that I like and I had great longing for musical.” He also said that he feel so thankful he meet with the good project as his first musical.
Q: Movie “The Mood That Day” will be released in January. I heard YeonSeok-ssi’s role ‘Jae Hyeon’ is a person who say “let’s sleep with me today” to the woman he meets for the first time. After he tossed the statement that close with sexual harrasment, I’m curious if they finally sleep together or not.
Yoo Yeon Seok : “Please check by yourself in cinema haha. The Mood That Day is the movie about a man named Jae Hyeon who enjoys one night stand and Moon Chae Won ssi’ role ‘Soo Jeong’, a woman who has the opposite nature with him. They meet by fate in ktx, then various episodes will begin. How their destiny in the end and how they will get connected, you will know if you watch the movie”
Q: Honestly, do you ever have experience to fall in love at the first sight like in the movie
Yoo Yeon Seok answered he never experienced falling in love at the first sight. But he did want to try talking to a woman who passed by. “In the past, I like that woman but I couldn’t bring my self to talk with her. I kept thinking about her all day. Even the next few days, I kept thinking about her and I regretted (that I didn’t ask her)” So if the same occasion happens to him in the future he decides to say “I like you, and if now I don’t ask for your phone number I think I’ll regret it”
Q: I’m curious on what point to make Yoo Yeon Seok fall in love?
Yoo Yeon Seok said every person have different charms but outgoing persons who have the same interest are not many. And he still said the woman who has a beautiful smile, but he couldn’t explain how to smile like that.
Yoo Yeon Seok also talked about love in this interview, as translated by Soompi :
In the interviews that followed the pictorial shoot, he talked about his ideal kind of love. He said, “I think that someone who really loves me will love my incompleteness and faults as well. For example, when my hair looks awful because I just woke up, I hope that the perfect woman will love that too. I think I will feel the real love then. However, I look really awful when I have just woken up.”
