Updates on Fan-made Videos of Ah In

I updated the fan-made videos of Ah In.  In case you forgot to check under the Music Videos of Fan-Arts, there are three videos were added.  And here they are!

First is a fan-made video. It is adapted from the story of “Duo Yun’s Life” written by Shelly and Wu Yun. All the characters of “Duo Yun’s Life” are the same as the original book titled “Sungkyunkwan Scholars’ Life.” In the original book, Duo Yun is Jae Shin’s “little” wife. [The video was made by Shelly – YooAhIn@youtube]

P.S. There will be some differences between the video content and the actual content of the article…

Guel Ro and Duo Yun – Duo Yun’s Life Part 1 by YooAhIn@youtube

Part 1: The story of “Duo Yun’s Life” is about a little girl named Duo Yun whom was picked by Moon Jae Shin’s aunt for him as his wife. Duo Yun appears to be gentle but in fact, she is quite clever. After knowing that she will be married, she sneaked out and wanted to take a look at her fiancé. But, instead, she saw someone in a fight. What she did not know was that “someone” is her fiancé… On one hand, Jae Shin does not care about getting married. But, on the other, Duo Yun is so happy and is preparing for the wedding. After getting married, Jalgeum four go to the palace and learn that they are going to Qing Dynasty for three years. Since then, Duo Yun has been waiting for Jae Shin’s return at home…

KBS must be run by fangirls, and other news

And Best Couple goes to……………?

Oh, yeah. You read that right. Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In have been nominated for the award of ‘Best Couple’ at the 2010 KBS Acting Awards for their work in KBS2TV’s ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’!! I can’t even tell you how much this thrills me. For those of you who may be new to the Korean drama scene, each major broadcasting channel (SBS, KBS, MBC) has a end-of-year acting awards ceremony to honor various actors, directors, etc. from their own channel’s dramas from that previous year. They represent some of the most prestigious acting awards in Korea, so this is quite a big deal.

Translation: Song Joong Ki and Yoo Ah In, who played Yeorim and Guh-roh, respectively, in ‘SKKS,’ became known as the representative ‘boy-boy couple’ in the drama and received the enthusiastic support from the drama’s mania viewers. The scene where Yeorim said to Guh-roh, who was risking danger to go catch the fake Hongbyeokseo, “Then who am I, at your side? Go and live however you want and got lost” and showed his tears even created a ‘gay scandal.’ At the time, the drama’s producers and actors all explained(?), “It was just the expression of 10 years of deep friendship,” but in the end, thanks to enthusiastic support, they were catapulted into the nominations for the award of Best Couple.

10 Asia reporters pick SKKS as 2010’s best drama

Fourteen reporters from 10Asia gathered together to vote for what they believed were the best drama, director, writer, and actor in the drama world in 2010. <Sungkyunkwan Scandal> was selected as the year’s best drama with 6 votes, just edging out <Chuno>with 5. As the article mentions, the reporters who submitted their votes are simply writers who diligently and lovingly watched Korea’s dramas over the past year, so their votes are more reflective of personal taste than professional critical opinion. Though they did not win, two reporters also selected Kim Kap Soo [the actor who played Lee Sunjoon’s father] as the best actor, and one reporter selected the Jalgeum Four of Park Yoochun, Park Minyoung, Yoo Ah In, and Song Joong Ki as the best actors of the dramas of 2010. =)

[High Cut] Song Joong Ki’s first impressions of Yoo Ah In?

What were your first impressions of <Sungkyunkwan Scandal> co-stars Yoo Ah In and Micky Yoochun? Was there any competition amongst the 3 kkot-mi-nams [literally, flower-pretty-boys]?

“I had thought Yoochun would be ‘weak and soft, a bit prickly,’ but when I met him he was actually incredibly manly and sentimental. And from the moment I met Ah In, his eyes weren’t ordinary. Enough that his gaze made me a little nervous [T/N: This is meant as a compliment]. As to competition, hmm…if we’re talking about looks, height more than face! Because all three of us are slender, I found myself wanting to look a bit bigger [by being taller].”

[ITW] [101108] 10 Asia interview with Yoo Ah In


Note: tinysunbl posted 10 Asia’s English translation of this article yesterday, but I went ahead and did my own translation because I’m masochistic like that and also because 10 Asia left out certain questions and interesting expository paragraphs. But who’s going to sit there and compare the Korean original with the English translation… haha. Anyway. There’s my total overkill of a disclaimer. Settle into your chair because you may be here for a while. -jaeshinah


Yoo Ah In | “Like Jaeshin broke out of his shell”

“Have I…ever said this? Thank you. For you, thank you.” It was the simplest confession in the world. This is how Moon Jaeshin (Yoo Ah In) sent off Kim Yoonhee (Park Min Young) on KBS’s <Sungkyunkwan Scandal>. Sungkyunkwan’s outsider, a defiant fighter against the absurdities of the world—-romanticist Jaeshin, who stood one step behind and watched over the one he loved, was the very symbol of the growing pains of youth. Jaeshin is a different world from the [other] roles of youth Yoo Ah In has played in the past, from his start in KBS’s <Banolim> as warmhearted ‘Ah In oppa’ to wandering boy Jongdae in the movie <Boys of Tomorrow>; from lonely warrior Heuksan in KBS’s <Strongest Chilwoo> to lively pâtissière apprentice Kibum in <Antique> and ‘typical modern boy’ Hyunkyu in KBS’s <Man Who Can’t Get Married>. Suddenly he is twenty-five years old, and despite his dark tan and facial hair, whenever he smiles his face seems to return to the fair-skinned young boy [we knew in the past]. <10 Asia> met with Yoo Ah In. The stage name ‘Ah In’ that he chose himself references the German word ‘ein’ (one), meaning that he is a unique being in this world. Following this eye-opening young man into the numerous worlds within him is not an easy task. But Yoo Ah In is unmistakably worth the effort.
