Yoo Ah In takes on the “Sweet Dreams” and Song Hye Kyo “The New Royals” pictorial themes respectively. They also take a couple photoshoot, lazying up on the couch and bed, playing the royal family. Yoo Ah In rocks the super dreamy and edgy look in his pictorial.
After the photoshoot, Yoo Ah In sits down and openly talks about love and life. Here are the snippets from his long interview:
In one of his answers, Yoo Ah In speaks about a very emotional part of his life, that is his teenage year. Since he started acting at a young age, dropped out of school, and didn’t have friends, he is extremely sensitive to these issues.
He says, “Recently, I saw the movie “The World of Us” [Korean movie released in 2016 about friendship and school bullying]. Only after 30 seconds into the movie, I started weeping. I’m very sensitive about kids facing violence and the hardships that accompany that.”
He adds, “My philosophy in life isn’t learned from a book or someone in particular. I actually acquired it on the streets, at my house, during work, the people I’m lucky to meet. I acquired it also from the fun times, and when I’m together with my girlfriend in bed.”
When asked, “When you are dating, what kind of a person are you?”, Yoo Ah In gives short answer, “An ill person.” [Note: perhaps he means he becomes all occupied with being in love, he becomes like a person affected by a disease, and becomes so dependent]
To the question asking whether he’s a person who can’t live alone, Yoo Ah In says, “I mean that being alone makes me feel so lacking. It feels like I’m naturally born with four arms and four legs, yet I’m only living with two.”
He further explains, “I always want to be in relationship. It’s the life that I breathe. It’s a natural part of me like a member of my family. When I’m not dating someone, I try to find someone to date, hang out with friends, or play a Casanova not staying in a relationship with one person for a long time. But after all, being a lover is my natural character. In that sense, I guess I should do some melodrama. I think there are characters that I can build. Because I’m (originally) a fun/interesting person/guy, I do cute/fun stuff when I’m dating my girlfriend.”
Also in the interview, Yoo Ah In says that what really makes a man manly and a woman feminine and ladylike is “being truly humane”.
Meanwhile, in her interview, Song Hye Kyo mentions a bit about Yoo Ah In. When she is asked if she doesn’t believe in friendship between a man and a woman, she answers, “True” [meaning: she doesn’t believe in friendship between men and women]. I don’t have friends who are men. And although I’m close to Yoo Ah In after he joined the agency recently and Song Joong Ki after working with him, to them, aren’t I just a good noona who treats them well to a meal at restaurants?”
