Yoo Yeon Seok’s Blue Team performed a song composed by composer Yoon Il Sang titled ” The World that I Hope / 내가 바라는 세상”. Yoo Yeon Seok joins his students on stage, surprising everyone (particulary Park Bo Young) as his musical voice blends well with the children’s.

The team garnered a whopping 89% of children’s votes and 85% of adult’s votes for this particular performance. With such high approval rate, the team is declared a winner of Best Kid Song at the end of the show. The kids look so happy, as well as their mentors.

All good thing sadly has to come an end. Yoo Yeon Seok and Yoon Il Sang have to bid farewell to their beloved Blue Team. All of them look sad, especially Myeong Bin and Ye Eum who were seen sobbing uncontrollably. Yoo Yeon Seok himself shed some tears while bidding goodbye, telling them how much he love them. He gifted each kid with a baseball cap that Myeong Bin revealed in her instagram.




Farewell for now, Yoo Yeon Seok, Yoon Il Sang, and Blue Team. Thank you for the great memory and songs.

If you want to listen or download “The World that I Hope”, you can go to iTunes and get your copy there. Please be mindful that the studio version does not feature Yoo Yeon Seok. As the winner of Best Kid Song, “The World that I Hope” is the title song for We Kid album that is released on 8 April 2016. In this album, you can also find Blue Team’s other song titled “Annyeong / Goodbye”.

Yoo Yeon Seok Surprised Haha with His Request on Running Man

In his special 4-minute stint in Running Man episode 293 that airs on 03 April 2016, Yoo Yeon Seok caught Haha off guard with his request.

Initially Haha was confident that Yoo Yeon Seok is a kind person that is different from his labelmate from King Kong Ent – Lee Kwang Soo the mischievous giraffe and that he would help him complete his mission easily. Haha Haha (pun intended). Haha sure was wrong.

After meeting him, Yoo Yeon Seok asks Haha to shave his chin in 10 seconds. Haha looks so surprised and flabbergasted with Yoo Yeon Seok’s request, he curses the Chilbongie actor many times. kekekekeke… It doesn’t help really that Yoo Yeon Seok came to meet Haha all prepared with an electronic shaver.  Poor Haha doesn’t realise that this trap was set behind the scene by Kwang Soo. HA!

Of course, Haha needs to say yes so he can get Yoo Yeon Seok to stamp his mission card. Haha shaves as fast as he can, leaving Yoo Yeon Seok cackling like rebellious kid who is watching his well laid-out plan works out. When he later sees that Haha doesn’t have a clean chin, he helped him out just because he is meticulous. Does he really need to add the salt into the wound?

Needless to say, Haha completes his mission accordingly and Yoo Yeon Seok needs to stamp his card mission. Stamp. Vote. Ring a bell? Yes, this meticulous ajusshi managed to ask Haha to watch his movie that opens on Election Day before putting on his stamp. Of course, this turns Haha into a ball of fire, shouting at Yoo Yeon Seok to just stamp his mission card already. Hahahaha…

All drama has its end and Haha “peacefully” asks Yoo Yeon Seok to join Running Man. Yes, Haha… YES!!! 1million YES!!! We’ve been waiting for him to appear in Running for as long as we can remember. Give us competitive meticulous Chilbongie ripping name tags any day!

For Blue Team’s first performance, Yoo Yeon Seok chose an old song from Sanulrim titled “goodbye”. He said that he liked the song alot when he was a kid. Yoo Yeon Seok admitted of crying whenever he watches the movie in which this song is played. He still has it on his mobile phone and played it for staff member. For him team, he introduced the song in more special way. Yoo Yeon Seok himself sings it for them! Watch Yoo Yeon Seok sings ‘goodbye’ in the next video.

Unlike other singing competition, this show is not about eliminating candidates and searching for the best singer out there. It is more about a friendly competition in creating children’s songs together where children take part in a festival environment. According to the chief producer Kim Yong-beom during press conference, the first-place team receives a prize from the Education minister and a scholarship.

Producer Kim also said an interesting tidbit on the selection of Yoo Yeon Seok, Park Bo Young and Tiger JK as mentors. Quoted from an article by Koreaherald, MNet brought in the three celebrities because they show sincere interest in music and the children, both on and off camera. Looking at the photos shared by Lee Harang and Hong Eui Hyun, MNet’s claim is not too far off. Outside WEKID and off camera, Yoo Yeon Seok invited his team members to his musical, ‘Man Who Walks Through Doors’ and made time to take picture together. Check out their photos below:

Today, I went to see ‘Man Who Walks Through Walls’, teacher Yoo Yeon Seok is the best 👍👍….


Invited to Teacher Yoo Yeon Seok’s ‘Man Who Walks Through Walls’

The children posted some pictures of their teacher with them, showing the teacher-student close bonding. Composer Yoon Il Sang also shares a photo of him and Yoo Yeon Seok that was taken during the recording for WEKID.

What a lovely scene.. but as any other team in the world, they will face some challenges and adversaries. Yoo Yeon Seok is seen attending Choi Myeong Bin who is crying.

[WEKID] Introducing Teacher Yoo Yeon Seok

After briefly telling the whole wide world just how Yoo Yeon Seok is defeated by the children, WEKID makes sure that we are now properly introduced to the so-called innocent pacifist  teacher.

 photo 4F0F6F89-B924-420E-A0CF-B3817C2A6A4F.png

“If I have problem with children, I think I’ll solve it with communication. Won’t it be settled? Hahaha”

“An innocent pacifist Yoo Yeon Seok”, who believes that any problem can be solved with calm conversation.

A Jinju boy who is also a former choir member when he was young. He has been working actively on screen and now, in musical stage where he has to sing 29 songs. A music gangster who is  full of twist, Yoo Yeon Seok!

A pacifist who is confident that any problem can be solved with communication and serious problem can be settled by “role playing”; a huge test approaches him.

Unexpected situation happened. Can he peacefully manage 18 kids who keep making troubles with communication and role playing methods? Or maybe that day will become the day when Yoo Yeon Seok who lives as a pacifist finally exploded?

Yoo Yeon Seok is one of the teachers in WEKID alongside Park Bo Young and Tiger JK. In the second preview featuring Park Bo Young, we are shown the striking difference in the children’s response to Yoo Yeon Seok and Park Bo Young. While Park Bo Young managed to grab the attention of the children to the point that they won’t even want to let her go, Yoo Yeok Seok stands at the opposite end.

Question is, will their method of teaching bring any difference to the children’s performance on stage? Or will we ever get to see the pacifist shoulder gangster explode?

Get the answer in the show’s first broadcast on 18 February, 9.40 PM KST.


WEKID facebook official page spoils us more by sharing the before-and-after picture of Yoo Yeon Seok. Meaning, before he became the teacher (awwww.. ) and after he became one. kekekekeke..

[20160205] Teacher Yoo Yeon Seok Is Defeated by the Children in ‘WEKID’ Preview

If you think that Yoo Yeon Seok will have a walk in the park during the shooting of MNet’s new music show ‘WEKID’, then think again.

In the show’s preview released on 5 February, it’s pretty obvious that the children was excited to have a handsome teacher at first. But seconds later, they ignored him completely. When he asked the children to concentrate for 5 minutes, that plea was ignored as well. The children kept on asking him to gift them present. The kids are also quite oblivious of his instruction to stop moving when he claps his hand.

He retreated from the class sweating, a clear sign of struggle and to some extent, defeat. Definitely, whatever child psychology theory he presented to the staff that earned him ‘child expert label’ went to drain in real life. Yet, the kids are shown performing very well on stage, even brought Yoo Yeon Seok to tears.

[20160111] Yoo Yeon Seok in Please Take Care of my Refrigerator (+Netizen Comments & Raw Videos)

On Monday night, Ep. 61 of JTBC’s Please Take Care of My Refrigerator episode which Yoo Yeon Seok and Moon Chae Won guest in was aired (He was in the previous episode as well but the episode was featuring on Moon Chae Won’s fridge)

 photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-45-54.png photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-46-09.png

Moon Chae Won mentioned her hobby of reading palms and the chefs one by one went to get their hands read. She read about “Byeontaesong” line which make a chef perplexed thinking it meant that he is a pervert, lol. But Moon Chae Won explained that “byeontaesong” isn’t really a bad thing like pervert, but more like an emotional factor that makes relationship fun (special thanks to Tokkipanda for the explanation! ♡). And it seems like Yoo Yeon Seok’s “byeontaesong” level was the highest of them all? Ahaha.

Chef Hong asked Moon Chae Won how does Yoo Yeon Seok’s lips feel like and that set both of them awkward. haha. But Moon Chae Won mentioned that she was actually having a cold when they shoot the kissing scenes in Mood of the Day. She had to take medicines, went to do the scene and kiss him, took medicine again, before kissing him again. She didn’t want to pass the cold to Yoo Yeon Seok.

And now onto his fridge!

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-36-25.png

It was fun to see the content of Yoo Yeon Seok’s fridge. It was full, filled with food and love from his mom, his fans as well as Hojun ❤

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-44-41.png photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-41-37.png photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-46-25.png

Look at those side dishes from his mom, healthy drinks and food for his vocal health in cute jars from his fans, and a bottle of Ugandan honey that Hojun gifted him. And as expected of him, his fridge is well organised.

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-53-51.png

Aside from food, he stored polaroid films and facial masks in his fridge too! xD

 photo screenshot_2016-01-12-19-52-25.png

He mentioned that him and Hojun frequently go to each other’s house. When asked about the bottle of Kopke Porto Wine in his fridge, he mentioned that he, Hojun and Baro drank a 3 years old wine together and the boys love it so much. After the drinking session, he went to sleep leaving the boys on their own. Hojun took out the 20 years old wine and they both drank a lot of the wine, without him.  lol

 photo screenshot_2016-01-15-07-44-59_1.png

He requested the chefs to prepare dishes that is healthy for the first round, and then dishes that go well with wine for the second round. He loves the first dish not only because it is healthy, but it is also unique. He also commented that he couldn’t guess where the dishes come from. It feels like he’s on travel and that he doesn’t need to travel to taste dishes like that.

Looks like he enjoyed the food prepared by the chefs so much, especially the Onion Chicken Steak by Chef Sam Kim ♡ And he even took polaroid photos of the chefs as well ❤

We are regret to inform that YeoNiverse isn’t planning to sub the episode at the moment 😦 Anyway, here are the raw videos of the episode ~

Also, read the netizen comments on Yoo Yeon Seok guesting on the show!

[Osen via Naver] ‘Refrigerator’ Yoo Yeon Seok, a gentleman’s formula is exactly like this.

1. [+509, -10] I watched Youth Over Flowers and I can believe a man like this if I go anywhere with him and seems like we can go to anywhere…
2. [+438, -5] If people does self management too seriously, they can lost their humanity but he got home education well so his personality is great too.
3. [+361, -10] He did a good job in expressing the taste and it looks that he has good manner too haha hope you keep going and be successful!
4. [+267, -10] As expected from Yoo Yeon Seok…. ㅠ
5. [+231, -4] Chilbongie is so cool 😄…..
6. [+97, -1] Beside the appearance, a man who has personality like him is my ideal type but there aren’t men like him around me…;;;;
7. [+88, -4] Even though he played “yangachi” role in “A Werewolf Boy”, there is no “yangachi” like that. His image changes in every project. He played the younger role of Yoo Ji Tae and like Yoo Ji Tae he did both good and evil roles.
(*Yangachi = the person who behaves very crude, coarse and do evil things like picking a pocket or threaten some younger people for money, acts like a school gang or so)
8. [+85, -3] I watched the broadcast, he really has manner. I can see in his eyes that he respects all the chefs. It’s awesome that he helped chef-nim taking photos too ㅠㅠ.
9. [+75, -1] He is so charming. As expected Chilbong is Yoo Yeon Seok~~
10. [+89, -6] I agree with the title “gentleman’s formula”. So awesome Yoo Actor!
