Yoo Ah In News Bits January 2017: The Legend Hall of Fame, Therapy and More

Welcome to another round of Yoo Ah In’s news bits for January. Not much went on, besides the ‘W’ Korea magazine interview and photoshoot, the “Burning” casting news and his military enlistment updates during the month, and yet he still got to stand with Korea’s best movie stars in the legends hall of fame ๐Ÿ˜€ Let’s check em out~


Jan.1 – Yoo Ah In sent his special message for the release of the “Six Flying Dragons” DVD Japanese version. As previously reported, โ€œSix Flying Dragonsโ€ released all the 50 episodes in DVD, both for rent & sale from November 2nd to January 18th in Japan with title, โ€œRoots of The Throneโ€. The drama won Special Prize For Foreign Drama at the 9th Tokyo Drama Awards, and Yoo Ah In had an interview with Japan media during the DVD promotion as well. Now, below is the new message from Yoo Ah In to Japan fans, which actually was recorded on April last year (during McCafe event), but just released on the New Year 2017.



Jan.13 – Rapper BewhY expressed his thoughts on his collaboration with Yoo Ah In in the MAMA (Mnet Asian Music Awards) 2016.

On January the 13th, BewhY appeared on SBS Love FM ‘The Two-man Show of Yoon Hyung Bin and Yang Sae-hyung’.

BewhY said cheerfully, “When I saw the stage of Show Me The Money 5, it felt cool beyond my comprehension”.

He told the behind the scenes story of the MAMA performance, “Yoo Ah In contacted me through Mnet director Han Dong Cheol. He told me that he wanted us to collaborate on an art project. Yoo Ah In was among the crew in that [Aerospace “Fragile”] video. So, we got together at the MAMA”.

BewhY added, “Yoo Ah In’s style was almost like a movie. His facial expressions, the way he speaks, his vocabulary choices, things like these, were similar to movies”.

BewhY was really surprised when Yoo Ah In contacted him. He said, “Right now, I can’t get in touch with him. But I’ve heard that he is ill these days”.

Awwn, he’s concerned about Yoo Ah In’s health too ๐Ÿ™‚


Jan.16 – Yoo Ah In posted a photo for the first time in 2017 in his instagram without any caption. It’s the photo from ‘W’ Korea, January issue, where he participated in the breast cancer awareness campaign.

Jan.21 –ย  Yoo Ah In got his place in the CGV Piccadilly 1958 Legends Hall of Fame! He is named “The Reaction Genius”. Superb!

The CGV Piccadilly 1958 Legends Hall of Fame is reserved only for movie actors who have achieved Best Actor awards, showed their best performance, and shined through their films. Yoo Ah In is featured with all the Korea’s movie legends, such as Song Kang Ho and Hwang Jung Min. He represents the 2010s generation actors [actors of 2010-2019 era], and the youngest among them all.

In the hall of fame, Piccadilly describes Yoo Ah In as ‘The Reaction Genius’ and writes the reason:

“Yoo Ah In – The Reaction Genius
He doesn’t only analyze the characters he plays, but also instinctively tunes the flow of the whole film and the tension of the character relationships. Particularly when he’s acting alongside a best actor winner/a senior actor, Yoo Ah In’s frightening amazingly reactions erupt/burst out. There’s more acting in him that hasn’t been seen yet. Therefore, he is an actor we look forward to, and he will amaze the audience more and more in the future.”

Yoo Ah In’s quote from his film “Sado/The Throne” is also featured in the hall of fame: “I didn’t want riches nor power. All I wanted was to have my father look at me and tell me kind words for once”.

Congrats, Master Sik! ๐Ÿ˜€


Jan.24 – Yoo Ah In went to a therapy session for his shoulder and gave an autograph with a birthday message to a staff!

A lady from the health care shared her story about Yoo Ah In’s signature in her instagram, January 24. Apparently Yoo Ah In was getting a physical therapy for his ligament ruptured shoulder, and he gave her his signature after the therapy and a happy birthday message for her.

In her caption under the photo, she said, “Yoo Ah In-nim came to have a therapy..โค๏ธ Whether I held his hands or not, that will be a secret๐Ÿ˜š #yooahin #saranghaeyo #happy >_<“

The verb she used ‘์†์žก๋‹ค’ doesn’t mean like shaking hands with someone. It literally means holding hands like forward a long period of time, which is normal in a shoulder therapy session, especially if he endures pain. Aww.. We’re sure you got better by now, Master Sik!


Jan.26 – Yoo Ah In’s latest three movies; Veteran, Like For Likes, Sado (The Throne), were broadcast for Lunar New Year/Seollal Holidays Special from January 26th to 28th. In fact, “Sado” was aired twice two days in a row.

Jan 26: Veteran – CGV channel, 22:30pm
Jan 27: Like For Likes – tvN, 22:50pm
Jan 28: Sado/The Throne – CGV channel, 11:10am
Jan 29: Sado/The Throne – OBN channel

“Like For Likes” even made to NO.1 Naver’s top trending news after the broadcast, proving that the feel-good movie starring Yoo Ah In is the people’s favorite during the Lunar New Year’s eve ^^


Let’s keep praying for our Master Sik’s fast recovery, so that he’s able to go back to work and finish all his works before going to military. Yoo Ah In, fighting!
