My dear friend, Li, informed earlier today that innolife posted the Chinese translations of Ah In’s first part of the press conference videos~ Since all our k-translators are busy, I translated the article from Chinese to English (instead from Korean to English)~ Now, since the translation is not done directly from Korean, after I finished it, I did ask Sophia nim to check and make sure that my translations are correct~ So, thanks, Sophia nim, for checking them!! 🙂

SKKS DVD Sales Commemoration, Main Actor Yoo Ah In’s Press Conference 1
Q: What do you think of the responses of SKKS in Japan?
YAI: To be honest, this is my first visiting Japan due to a TV drama. Therefore, I am not sure what kind the responses are there. Through this event today, I also would like to see your responses to this drama. I will also do my best to meet with you more often.
YAI: I also have a lot of feelings toward this role. There seems to be no difference in South Korea. The role that everyone likes in South Korea is also very well-liked in Japan. I am also very surprised and also feel that there isn’t any difference between people’s feelings.
Q: What is the charm of your role?
YAI: His name is Moon Jae Shin and his nickname is Geol-oh. Just like he has two names, he also shows two different personalities – wild manly side but also young immature side. For such a complex role, being an actor, I also really would like to portray it. In addition, fans probably like this role because of that reason.
Q: Are you and Geol-oh very much alike?
YAI: Not exactly the same. Two kinds of attractions are… attractions? There should be two types of personalities – sometimes very manly and domineering, but sometimes very naïve and sensitive. I have this dual character myself anyway. So, when playing this role, it also helped myself quite a bit.
Q: What is SKKS for Yoo Ah In?
YAI: It is a work that made me come here. [It is also] an activity that I spent a long time on in Korea. This work not only helps me tremendously on my acting but also on the recognition of my name. For myself, it is also a highlight of my work.
Q: What do you think of your first visit in Japan?
YAI: I just did a rehearsal now. Very nervous. My voice was shaking. Extremely nervous. I hope I can present myself for everyone the same way as I do in Korea
Q: Is there any place in Japan you would like to go?
YAI: Shinjuku? Shibuya? I prefer clothes… prefer shopping. If it were at night, club…
