Yoo Ah In Twitter/Facebook/Instagram Updates & Complete Translations [2013.06.26 ~ 06.29]
Yoo Ah In was online on his social media quite often lately, and of course we’re happy that he’s trying to keep fans updated with his activities by posting his pictures and videos via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (plus Vine account!) ^ ^ Funny enough, every time he posted something especially a video or picture, it created a buzz on the net!
This happened just recently as well. Apparently his chatty tweets related to drama ‘Jang Ok Jung, Live In Love’ within 26th June has become the talk of the town. In fact, Allkpop posted an article about his tweets with “bombastic” title including the translations. It’s a rare thing for this pop news outlet to cover Yoo Ah In’s twitter activity as we know that he’s not part of “lollipop culture” that is Allkpop.
Though we’re happy that Allkpop brought his tweets up, we feel a wee disappointed that they make it sounds like he’s talking nonsense, out of the blue like a drunkard, and that he sounds whining about the “low ratings” and bickering with followers about it. Allkpop didn’t translate all the tweets especially the ones which contain Yoo Ah In’s interaction with his followers, thus they only created small instead of bigger picture. There’s a background story left behind as well. So let Sikseekland get this straight, mmmkay! ^ ^
First off, Yoo Ah In never, not even once, cares about ratings. He’s an actor that always picks a role in a drama that he knows he can mold with, and every character always resonates part of his true self. That’s all that matters to him. If we recall his tweets on 20th May, Yoo Ah In was the first and only one who (boldly) criticized SBS for turning Jang Ok Jung to a makjang fest in order to pick the audience ratings up. Logically, had he cared about ratings, he should have been happy with them picking up despite the makjang-ness. Yet in contrary, he openly against the change in script and expressed his dissatisfaction towards the writing.
Secondly, if we talk about ratings, Jang Ok Jung overall’s ratings were not that bad~ it ended with 2 digit-ratings and recorded higher number in Seoul metropolitan area. But does anyone care? No. And Yoo Ah In openly stated that he was satisfied with his drama: “I was happy to play a completely new King Sukjong” [10Asia].
Thirdly, Yoo Ah In tweeted from Jang Ok Jung farewell party around 7pm to 10pm, surrounded by his lovely teammates. It’s too early to get drunk, and the mood in the party was too good. I don’t think he was that “drunk” but more to “loose”. Most importantly, all his tweets on the 26th made so much sense that it was impossible written by someone who was heavily drunk.

Yoo Ah In is known as an opinionated and outspoken actor out there. If you think that those arguments with followers are biggy, you should read his political debate tweets first.
So what were his tweets exactly all about? As we know, ‘Jang Ok Jung, Live In Love’ garnered criticizes left and right in Korea~ people especially the media in Korea kept harping how the drama distorting the history and how bad the impact it could make. Ironically, they all kept praising Yoo Ah In’s acting, and yet kept putting the drama down. During the shooting he never talked this issue out. Until the farewell of Jang Ok Jung. We’re sure that he thought it was time for him to speak his mind and call out those people.
Today Sikseekland admins are presenting the complete version of Yoo Ah In’s twitter update especially for the 26th June. Some translations are taken from AKP and combined with the new translations from our admins. We hope that people who come across this blog will get a bigger picture of him 🙂
