Yoo Ah In, who played Geoluh Moon Jae Shin with a fierce, remote personality in Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Playing special characters in artistically diverse independent works more often than in trendy ones, Yoo Ah In became a “favorite actor,” gaining lots of popularity through Sungkyunkwan Scandal. “So what type of character is Geoluh Moon Jae Shin?” To find out the answer, during the release conference for SKKS DVD at Seoul Hotel, we met with Yoo Ah In, the man who created the “Geoluh ache” that stole the hearts of countless women.

Hi Haveners~

After reading the Chinese translations of Ah In’s interview in the SKKS Japanese Magazine,  as always, I can’t help but translating the interview to English so that more people can read about him and of course, fall in love with him all over again and again and again~ ^^ ~

Young Talented Actor Set off the “Guel Ro” Syndrome

The rebellious Moon Jaeshin is called the “Guel Ro” of the Sungkyunkwan.  When this macho role in the original novel was decided to be played by Yoo Ah In who has a baby face, many people did not think Yoo Ah In was suitable to the role. However, instead of using the manly appearance, he used his wounded and depressed look of his eyes which perfectly overturned the original impression that people had.  He said “the way Jaeshin keeps growing is very similar to myself in the past.”  Maybe the role of Moon Jaeshin was made for Yoo Ah In.

Yoo Ah In and SKKS Cast on Japanese Magazine

Although the drama hasn’t yet gone on air, Sungkyunkwan Scandal and its cast are enjoying a lot of attention in Japan. The drama NGs and the cast recently appeared on a Japanese Magazine, which made me realize how much I miss this show and Gulo’s mane of glory. Great to see Ah In a little “undone” with the messy hair and the pornstache.

Live Report of KBS Drama Awards 2010!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I decided to do a live report of KBS Drama Awards 2010. I won’t be translating spoken words, because seriously I don’t understand that much. If I do understand, I will tell. This post will be updated as the award ceremony is proceeding.

I didn’t watch for the beginning, only about 20 minutes in. Update: So I ended up editing quite a few after the awards are over but overall they’re live reports. I didn’t want it to be a raw live report so all of you can read it well. I did not read any news at all, all the things written are according to what I saw. There might be some wrong things so I might need to fix them later.

The award ceremony is MCed by Choi Soojung, Lee Dahae and Song Joongki. The ceremony will be divided into three parts. I might post the winners list when I can get my hands on it. In the following post, I will only write down winners/categories that has to do with Mr. Yoo or Sungkyungkwan Scandal.

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…

Is Jae Shin going to see his little wife Duo Yun in Qing Dynasty?  [~~To Be Continue~~]

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.
