“Sukjong” Yoo Ah In Having Fun, Bromance Ensues, Fellow Actors Sing Praises

We know that Yoo Ah In was happy to play a completely new Sukjong in ‘Jang Ok Jung, Lives In Love’. But barely people know that he took fun to the next level in the midst of drama filming (and its controversies) and after the “office hour” as well.

In ‘Jang Ok Jung’ too, we got the real Yoo Ah In-Lee Sang Yeob bromance on-off screens, which I think is more real than his bromance with Song Joong Ki. Picture-proofs~~

“I played dart and danced with Yoo Ah In. We all had great time especially the two ahjussi” – Lee Sang Yeob

During ‘Jang Ok Jung’ shooting Lee Sang Yeob and Yoo Ah In developed a very close friendship and took their onscreen’s bromance off the screen as well.ย  In most of his interviews Lee Sang Yeob shared their bonding time stories to the reporters.

For instance, he told people that “I played dart and danced with Yoo Ah In after we finished shooting the finale episode. We went out for drinks, played darts and jumped to dance,” Lee Sang Yeob recalled with big grin on his face.

He also said that KARA’s Han Seung Yeon joined dancing with them too. “We all had great time especially the 2 ahjussi, who are the 2 ahjussi? Me and Ah In of course, hahaha!”

Playing dart and dancing? Woohoo! Grasping the work hard play harder motto, dudes?

The 30 years old actor doesn’t hesitate to admit that he really looks up to Yoo Ah In who is younger, and that his acting improved because of Yoo Ah In’s influence.

“His acting is so great, just so good that I call him teacher,” he emphasized. “I don’t know how people got impression that he’s a stiff person, but Yoo Ah In is not like what people perceived at all. In fact, Ah In is really cute, and we are good friends now.” Aww~~

Lee Sang Yeob also confessed that the most memorable experience in Jang Ok Jung during the past six months is none other than working together with Yoo Ah In and seeing him acting. He said that both of them still keep in touch until now, “We sometimes get together”. Great! Keep your friendship forever, dudes!

It’s good knowing that our Master Sik got recognize for his acting ability, not for how much popular a project is. Most importantly, he confidently knows what he’s doing and where he wants to be because he has his own vision. And we’re glad that while he’s on it, Yoo Ah In knows how to do it with fun. Cheers to more unexpected projects and surprise Yoo Ah In will bring in the future. Happy TGIF!

    I knew it, the very first time I saw his filmed Antique bakeshop I knew that this guy would go a long way and it was very apparent that he can act. I also perceived that among his peers he is likely the one who would last in this business! Kudos Ah In! Keep it up!

      I like that they call him an actor with a vision and a method actor. Because that’s how I feel about him all the time. Other people measure the success of an actor by his popularity, but Yoo Ah In’s thought is beyond it.
