Besides earning much praises from the critics and winning the Best Actor in the 2015 Blue Dragon Film Awards for his role in The Throne, Yoo Ah In’s passion in acting was revealed by a veteran actor Cha Sun Bae, and got much praise as well.
On November 4th broadcast of MBC ‘Golden Fishery – Radio Star’, the new faces of veteran actors became the guest stars.
On this day, actor Cha Sun Bae who plays in The Throne as the Crown Prince Sado’s eunuch, praises Yoo Ah In.
“There was a scene where Yoo Ah In banged his head over and over again against the fake stone floor. But he was too immersed that he banged his head against the real stone and his head was bleeding,” he says.
“Normally, people will ask to stop filming, clean the blood and tend the wound. But Yoo Ah In didn’t do it, and instead kept filming.”
He adds, “He just rubbed ointments to the wound and resumed shooting.”
This causes much surprise to the host. The host asks, “So that was the real wound?” (the footage video shows Yoo Ah In’s talking and banging head while his forehead was bleeding).
Cha Sun Bae replies, “Yes, that’s the real blood dripping from his forehead.”
Kim Gura’s Pumpkin Seed, December 2015 broadcast, also gushed over Yoo Ah In’s dedication to acting when they found out the blood dripping from his forehead in The Throne was actually Yoo Ah In’s real blood. Watch the clips: part 1, part 2
Well, that’s our Yoo Ah In! So proud of YOO and The Throne!
