[TRANSLATIONS] Yoo Ah In Makes A Surprise Appearance in Song Hye Kyo Fanmeeting. Here’s The Story
Yoo Ah In was the surprise guest in Song Hye Kyo fanmeeting in Seoul. The actress celebrated her 20th anniversary with her fans on the 13th. Yoo Ah In and Song Joong Ki who are known to be close friends with Song Hye Kyo came to show their support.
Yoo Ah In was wearing very casual black attire, from cap to sweatshirt and sweatpants. Fans were cheering on Yoo Ah In & Song Joong Ki when they showed up on the stage. In the beginning of the fanmeeting, Yoo Ah In and Song Joong Ki played Rock-Paper-Scissors Game to decide who could sit beside Song Hye Kyo. Joong Ki lost the game, but he asked to play one more time and won😀 So he sat beside Hye Kyo, and Ah In sat beside MC Park Kyung Lim. Watch the clips~

Since the event organizer didn’t allow fans taking photos during the event, there were barely any photos taken from the fanmeeting, and they’re all blurred/unclear pictures, so that we’re not able to see Yoo Ah In’s face/expressions clearly. [UPDATE 11/19: Here are Yoo Ah In’s HQ photos from the fanmeeting, shared by @NDD0815]
Luckily, some generous fans of Song Hye Kyo shared the story from her fanmeeting special for Yoo Ah In’s fans in DC Yoo Ah In Gallery!😀
The fan who wrote it said, “Here’s a list of things that happened (with Yoo Ah In at the fanmeeting)”. There are a few missing parts, but I try my best to be faithful in writing down everything” :) Here we go~
Yoo Ah In Story in Song Hye Kyo Fanmeeting, November 13, 2016
Translated By Sassy Translator of Yoo Ah In International Fans Community
Song Hye Kyo: You two guys are both busy these days. You both have movies (to work on), so thank you for coming.
Yoo Ah In: I’m not busy (laugh)
MC: Yoo Ah In-ssi, you have come wearing a really casual attire.. Hahaha [structure tone: she’s surprised :D]
Yoo Ah In: It fits the mood [it’s reminiscent] of hanging out at [Song Hye Kyo] noona’s house (laugh)
MC: Do you remember how it felt when you first saw her?
Yoo Ah In: (apparently the camera zoomed on his face as he was answering) Aah I don’t have makeup on. Please don’t do a close up [on my face]. Hahaha! Normally, I was impressed [regarding Song Hye Kyo]. Even when I saw her again, I always want to hang out/have fun with this noona (laugh). I found her to be very cool and straightforward.
Song Hye Kyo: Ainie and I are always almost drunk at many of our meetups/gatherings. So it’s awkward to face him sober now (laugh)
Yoo Ah In: It’s so awkward that it’s killing me! (laugh)
MC: How did you get acquainted?
Yoo Ah In: We were drinking, pointlessly joking, and harassing/annoying each other, and you know we became close friends🙂
MC: Did you see “Descendants of the Sun”?
Yoo Ah In: I only saw it when I came in it/only saw my cameo episode. I did the best that I could to watch it. [Note: we guess he’s hinting at how busy he was]
MC: You played a bank clerk, and you did it in a method acting style (laugh). You didn’t make the loan easy for her (laugh)
Yoo Ah In: Still till now, I can’t escape that bank teller role/I’m still being asked about that bank teller role!! (laugh)
MC: What was the difference between how you feel about her [personality] and her public image?
Yoo Ah In: (jokingly) I found out that she was more uncool than I thought her to be. Hahaha! [Note: he jokingly said that he used to think that she was uncool. She turned out being even more uncool than he anticipated]. (now he’s being serious) I think that she’s very cool, very timid, and very sensitive. When I look at this part, I wonder how much trouble she had since she has been active as a top actress for a long time. I wonder how much that timid sensitive girl worked hard, yet she is still easygoing and has a strong/fierce face. [Note: we guess he means that her face shows strength, rather than weakness, and it’s surprising when you think of the trouble/hard work she went through]. I was surprised. At the time we first met, we had to remove the outer layer [remove formalities, when you look at the person deeply, not just the outer surface], and it was like reaching Nirvana. [Definition of Nirvana: a state of consciousness. It is a state of profound peace and great wisdom. It is the ultimate happiness that comes when we are liberated from finding pain or pleasure in impermanent objects. It is a state of consciousness which is above all others. It is the opposite of ignorance, greed, hatred and the defilement which cloud our minds]. When I looked at her like that, I’ve realized that she truly must have went through many hard times.
MC: If you two were to meet at some work, what type of roles do you like to play against each other?
Yoo Ah In: I like the Song [Joongki]-Kyo [I like the Song-Song duo]. Hahaha. It will be good if Hyekyo crushes on me and chases after me in the work. [Note: he’s joking]
Yoo Ah In: How come we are at a fan meeting and you two are not singing?! Oiga omneh! Hahaha! [“어이가 없네”/”oiga omneh”/”how ridiculous!” is his “Veteran” movie catchphrase]
(Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki actually sang a song from the OST)
MC: What do you like to say to Kyo?
Yoo Ah In: (teasing) I can say that on Kakaotalk..hahahaha! [[Note: he means that he chats with Song Hye Kyo via Kakaotalk, so he can actually tell her what he wants to say off the stage]. Today it was a pleasure to come and meet Song Joongki-ssi and Hyekyo-ssi. I wish you a happy time. Although I’ve asked myself, “what type of a woman is she?” And I’ve thought it over… although she has played countless “cool woman” characters for 20 years, she’s more far cool woman than any of the characters she has played. I wish you [Song Hye Kyo] lots of strength/support.
Aww! Such a sweet and generous Sik that we know😀
Song Hye Kyo’s fans dropped by DC Yoo Ah In Gallery to say thank you for his warm words and support for her as well. The first fan message says, “Today I went to [Song Hye Kyo] fan meeting and I saw him [Yoo Ah In]. I have a lot of good things to say about him and I’m getting tearful. Actor Yoo Ah In, I will support you and wish you more success in the future. Thank you.”
And another Hye Kyo fan says, “I came here to say thank you~ I was totally fascinated when I saw him at the fan meeting. I became a certified fan [of Yoo Ah In]. He’s so witty and honest. He’s so handsome. I felt he’s being sincere with his words. I was truly touched. I still can’t get out of his bank teller joke. It’s still popping up in my head. Hahaha. It was the best. I hope someday he and Song Hye Kyo play in a movie together. I will cheer them up. Go go go!”
