[TRANSLATIONS] Yoo Ah In is A Surprise Guest in MC Park Kyung Lim’s “Talk Concert”. Here’s the Story
Just a day after Yoo Ah In garnered attention from his participation in the mass rally calling for president’s resignation in Gwanghwamun Square, Yoo Ah In became a surprise guest star in MC Park Kyung Lim’s Talk Concert.
Park Kyung Lim is a famous MC, entertainer, and comedienne known for her wit and kind behavior. Yoo Ah In and Park are good friends, and she has interviewed him quite many times during his movie promotional events since 2013. In the latest TV talk show before her Talk Concert took place, Park said that she would invite her favorite actor-friends to the Talk Concert, but she kept the names hush hush.
Park Kyung Lim Talk Concert ‘3-No-mantic Women’ was held five days in a row, from November 16th to 20th. The event was held to revive romance in the female audience [Park’s fans]. It consisted of a talk show, dance and music. Five surprise guest stars came to perform each day; Park Soo Hong, Lee Jun Ki, Kim Woo Bin, Hwang Jung Min, and Yoo Ah In. Urban Zakapa’s Park Yong In and Kwon Sun Il also appeared to perform “No Way”, the “Doctors” OST on the last day.
Yoo Ah In showed up on the last day of “Park Kyung Lim Talk Concert 3-No-mantic Women” at Ewha Woman’s University Samsung Hall, Sunday afternoon, November 20.
Looking good in Vetements blue-striped shirt and Ami Alexandre Matiussi grey alpaca oversized turtleneck, Yoo Ah In appeared as “the romantic CPR” and he sang Seo Taiji & Boys “To You”. He’s back to his classic army cut and it still made them surprised too :p Here are some of his photos from Park Kyung Lim Talk Concert~
Since he was a surprised guest star, nearly like that of Song Hye Kyo Fanmeeting, none of his fans knew this or attended the event. But luckily, some Park Kyung Lim’s fans kindly shared a bit story from Park’s event to Yoo Ah In fans in DC and instagram🙂 Let’s check them out~
Translated by our Sassy translator from Yoo Ah In International Fans Community
In the beginning of the show, a survey was given to audience. The survey was about the guest they desired today to see on Park Kyung Lim Talk Concert. The survey’s answers were divided into “they want to see a romantic guest”, and others wanted “a sang-namja guest” [a manly man guest].
Then, Yoo Ah In came out.
This fan said: When I first saw him on the stage, I thought he was a monk😂 It took me seconds to realize that this is Yoo Ah In. When he came on the stage and made eye contact with the audience, it felt like his eyes are “flowing with honey” [Korean expression].
Park Kyung Lim: Our guest today has both sides [romance/manliness]
Yoo Ah In: I don’t think of myself in that way. I’ve always said that I’m a romantic man
Park Kyung Lim: I didn’t know that such a hair style would look so good on you/suits you so well
Yoo Ah In: When I looked in the mirror, I was surprised too (laugh)
Park Kyung Lim: How do you feel being on stage right now?
Yoo Ah In: I have stage phobia, and I always make sure that I take my calming pills beforehand [note: the pills he mentioned are natural ones like Chinese medicine stuff, not pharmaceutical pills]. But with Park Kyung Lim-ssi, I don’t take those pills. You calm down my anxiety.
Park Kyung Lim: This is the first time I’m hearing this from you! That makes me extremely happy!
Park Kyung Lim: What’s your next project?
Yoo Ah In: It’s still undecided. I only have “Burning” as my next project
Park Kyung Lim: Think of us as if we were Kim Hee Ae. What memorable line (from “Secret Love Affair”) would you tell us?
Yoo Ah In: “Can’t you just love me?” 😄😄 (audience screamed wildly)
Then, he sang a song from Seo Taiji & Boys “To You”. Check how adorable he is when singing and feeling embarrased~^^

Yoo Ah In: (singing) I like all of you 🎶 I do not have fear now 🎶
Park Kyung Lim: Wow wow I listened to Ah In singing!
Yoo Ah In: I did not sing. That was like talking (laugh). You felt the trembling [in my singing voice]?!
Note: he sang this song in 2008 during a talkshow too 😄
At the end of the event, Yoo Ah In spoke to the audience who are mainly women, “I’m cheering on all women of Korea. I hope that you love yourself fervently, and enjoy life”.
[UPDATE] Yoo Ah In played a “romantic games” with one lucky audience too😀 Apparently, the audience was given a 20 minutes lecture on how to do aegyo prior to his entrance. And then, one audience came up stage and had to practice her aegyo in front of Yoo Ah In 😄😄 Then Park Kyung Lim asked him if the woman passed the test, and he said yes, and he gave her the “Secret Love Affair” famous backhug and goodie bag😀

Yoo Ah In took some photos at the backstage with MC Ha Ji Young, who always interviews him on SBS One Night TV Entertainment.
She posted the photo in her instagram and sang praises for him~
“Every time I see him I have this half-moon eye smile [extremely happy] and break into a sweat/nervous. He always asks ‘How are you?’, ‘What’s up?’. He’s always warm to people around him. He gives so much attention to others. This free-spirited and nice guy, actor Yoo Ah In-ssi. I know that he has stage phobia. He sweats a lot [out of nervousness] and becomes red in the face. I met him at Park Kyung Lim’s Talk Concert. My hair is damp, but it’s okay. Always nice to see you.”
The photo made the news the next day, and Netizens commented on the article:
[+4968, -126] He’s so good-looking but he looks like a monk
[+2389, -96] Yoo Ah In looks handsome ㅋㅋ He’s handsome and cute even with that haircut
[+2165, -102] Yoo Ah In is really cool …
[+1656, -90] He has no hair ㅜ ㅜ ㅜ ㅜ (But) he’s seriously handsome
A celebrity hairstylist who works with Park Kyung Lim took a photo with Yoo Ah In too at the backstage, and posted it in his instagram.
He said, “Park Kyung Lim. Last day. Samsung Hall. The invited guest is actor Yoo Ah In~~ As expected, he has the cool actor power/energy, and he seems genuine. Very great manners too. I’m a new fan.” [Note: he actually said the term fan-shim, not just “fan”. Fan-shim incorporates the words fan+shim (means “for heart”). It means a hard-core fan, who is discreet about his fandomery].
And last but not least, the Talk Concert production/engineering and organizer team posed with Yoo Ah In as well~^^
Super duper cute!😀
