[PHOTOS & VIDEO] Yoo Ah In Brushes Off Song Hye Kyo in Descendants of the Sun + Video Hits 1 Million
It was previously announced that Yoo Ah In would be making a short appearance on the show for his good friend Song Hye Kyo, the lead actress in “Descendants of the Sun”. He is also friends with Song Hye Kyo’s co-star Song Joong Ki, as the pair both appeared in the drama “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”.
In an interview at the Asian Film Awards in Macau, Yoo Ah In revealed that the cameo was a present for Song Hye Kyo. Song Hye Kyo, who works at the same agency as Yoo Ah In, celebrated her birthday during the filming of Descendants of the Sun.
At that time, Yoo Ah In came to Song Hye Kyo’s birthday party dinner and met the drama staff too. According to a representative, Yoo Ah In first thought of the cameo during the celebration.
Yoo Ah In said, “I wasn’t able to give her a present at the party. I wanted to prepare a secret present for her and I got the opportunity to make a cameo appearance in her drama.”
Yoo Ah In also proved his loyal viewership to the drama, naming Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s “wine kiss” as the most memorable scene.
In April 6’s episode of Descendants of the Sun (episode 13), we finally get to see Yoo Ah In in his long-awaited cameo scene. He appeared as a bank clerk that interacted with Song Hye Kyo, and he is using his real name “Uhm Hong Sik” on his nameplate! 😀
In Yoo Ah In’s brief cameo scene which lasted for 42 secs, he played a comically unsympathetic bank teller who was visited by Song Hye Kyo’s character Kang Mo Yeon. She was desperate to get a loan finalized, but Yoo Ah In snootily informed her that because she was just quit her job at the hospital, she was considered unemployed and wouldn’t be able to take out the loan.
Yoo Ah In: “Last time when you came in for a loan counseling, you were a professor at Haesung Hospital. But now, you’re just a start-up entrepreneur with a medical license. So, in fact you’re unemployed.”
Song Hye Kyo: “Then what should I do?”
Yoo Ah In [deadpan] : “Why are you asking me?
Yoo Ah In: “Next costumer, please!”
Yoo Ah In’s cameo made NO.1 top trending in Naver, Daum and Nate altogether after the show was over. Yoo Ah In stayed at the top of trending topic from the night till next day’s afternoon.
His cameo video clip also became NO.1 in Naver TOP 100 Most Popular Videos, AND the clip surpassed 1 million views as of April 7th! Whoa!
What makes it more amazing is that Yoo Ah In’s cameo clip beat other Descendants of the Sun clips which are starred by its own leading stars. So, that says A LOT about our Master Sik!
My good friend Fandomscape says, “Yesterday it’s all about Yoo Ah In’s 42 seconds. I never saw a cameo this short taking up all the entire chart and search engines”. True that!
Hancinema quoted as saying: “Descendants of the Sun” Yoo Ah In’s cameo worked! 33.5%”, which was a 0.5% increase from the previous episode. The power of Sik? 😀
