Yoo Ah In News Bits November 21-30, 2017: Keeping positive attitude up, doing live tour + more fans stories

Once again, we have written/reported specifically all his November posts related to the “RIP” and “zucchini” ridic issues. So, for this News Bits section, we will just bring up topics other than those two.

Picking up where we left off, here are the November News Bits part 2!

Note 1: Keep in mind that all his SNS activities in this second part happened during the Megals’ attack/bully and media distortion, so that most of his posts reflected his feelings and thoughts related to the issue. However, he also left many positive messages and supports to others.

Note 2: Most of the information in the “News Bits” posts are already shared/posted in our Facebook and Twitter, so we advice you readers to follow both of our SNS accounts for the exclusive and freshly updates right from the oven. We have posted some information/his SNS inside our past articles/posts too.


November 21 – Yoo Ah In was live broadcast by posting Robert Parker’s “Sweet Nothings” audio clip~


In the same day, a girl from Naver blog shared her story of meeting Yoo Ah In by accident when she visited an art gallery on Sunday, November 19th! She told her friends that she saw Yoo Ah In and even took a photo together with him! 🤗 She also said that he was growing his facial hair 😀

Friend 1: Huk ㅠㅠ I really want to see him by chance too. I really like him ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ !! I really want to take a picture together with him too! I’m so jealous… Who did he come with? I’m so curious ㅠ. ㅠ

Witness girl: He was working together with the art director team! Since he’s inactive/not doing any project, he has a lot of facial hair/stubble. He looks handsome too even when he grows his beard out ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ [Note: It’s obvious that she doesn’t know yet that at the moment Yoo Ah In is busy working for his movie “Burning”]

Friend 2: How was Yoo Ah In like?? At which art gallery did you see him? ㅠㅠ Yoo Ah In jjang! I like him and I envy you.

Witness girl: Yoo Ah In was the one who asked me to take a picture first ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ ㅋ [Note: she indicated that she greeted him and talked to him first, and then he offered her taking a photo together]. Everything about him is perfect. He looks more like a boy in real life than he is on the screen. His style on screen is like a cold city guy, but he’s just like a puppy (mild, cute, innocent person) in real life.

Awwwww so envious!! 


November 22 – He put on his fave mask again (that he wore several months ago too) and a hoodie that reads “SINNERS”~


A post shared by 유아인/Yoo Ah in🇰🇷 (@hongsick) on

His caption:



And then, Yoo Ah In took a video of a stray cat hiding behind the bushes from a far… he even tried to get the cat’s attention by meowing!! 🤣🤣 He did all this stuff while listening to RUXXUN’ by STXXCH

He wrote a deep caption:

Open your mind and learn more, take a deep long look before saying ‘I know [you]’. Only this much. #RUXXUN’ #STXXCH


November 23 – Past midnight, Yoo Ah In sent his warm message to the students taking college entrance exam, and replied many students and followers with his positive vibe. Read here.

Later on, Yoo Ah In was live broadcast by playing JAY-Z MV “The story of O.J.” and in the end he said, “bye!”


He posted Jay-Z 13th Studio Album 4:44 photo as well~

His caption reads:

🙏🏾🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏻❤️🙏 #jayz

Later, he changed the caption to:

There’s no artist name in the album cover. See the work. Look inside. Look at yourselves.

4:44 is the thirteenth studio album by American rapper Jay-Z. It was released on June 30, 2017. The album received widespread acclaim from critics, who praised its emotional and personal content. On the album, Jay-Z touches on a wide array of topics, such as the ongoing hip hop culture, his family life, his relationships, stereotypes and racism.


Still on November 23, a staff from coffee truck company Tom N Toms posted a throwback photo of Yoo Ah In during Six Flying Dragons fans support back in 2016~

In the caption, he wrote:

# yehet (embarrassing smile) # was supposed to pose for the signboard [but actually wanted to pose with Yoo Ah In] # too trembling # dragon # I’m speechless # I’m Yoo Ah In’s fan # handsome # cool # I wrinkled [his fingers wrinkled because his hands were too cold due to nervousness]

Awwn… he is a fan and felt so nervous and happy when posing with Sik 😀


Also, a famous fashion director, who worked for GQ Korea Men of The Year issue and many other famous stars, posted Yoo Ah In’s pictorial in his instagram~

He wrote the caption under the photo with:

Actor Yoo! Thank you and thank you. It’s been a long time since I had so much fun with my job and enjoyed working on it 👍💙 @ gq_korea # cool guy # excited


November 24 – Yoo Ah In retweeted a news article from Huffington Post Korea. The headline reads: “White supremacist Richard Spencer banned from 26 European countries”~

Read here for the English version of the article


Then, he took instagram and posted JAY-Z MV “The story of O.J.”. The Story of O.J. references racism, stereotypes and the experience of being a black person in America~

A post shared by 유아인/Yoo Ah in🇰🇷 (@hongsick) on

Yoo Ah In praises Jay-Z in a lengthy caption:

Still Niga Still Slave 4Older Orders [note: he quoted the lyrics]

A writer who once showed his own world is soothing the world now, not spitting in this shitty world, not raising the middle finger quickly to look ‘cool’. He neither shitting/showing off nor vomiting. Putting down the latest, the first, the greatest competition, the hottest and the coldest humanity- he adjusts the temperature of the world with that mind.

In order to become a writer king in this era; Jay-Z began to observe the gap between himself and the others without begging for the throne regardless of audience, consumer, and authority. Using his lonely and almighty hands, he soothed the whole world, and soothed himself again.

This is not an art hanging in the exhibition hall for ‘sale’. He did not even insert his name in the album cover. An ‘item’ is for sell and purchase, but this is a real ‘art’ which is hung/displayed in the ‘website’ and distributed for free of charge. He is the world’s first and richest rapper, one’s own self, the others’ self, and a real artist. This is not an empty shell/flashy bell but a true comfort.

You and me. Us together.

🙏🏿: 🙏🏾🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏻❤️🙏 #jayz


Right after that, Yoo Ah In posted Hwang Byung Seung’s poem, ‘A Picnic Spot With a Rat’, and wrote his own poem-reply to the poet! 😎 Actually, he has posted Hwang’s poem in his instagram seven months ago.

Translations on the passage/Hwang’s poet that Yoo Ah In posted via iCloud:

The courage vanished,
On untimely gaudy Monday,
I want to destroy all the paintings I painted,
No matter what kind of pattern, the clothes and nature unmatched,
I don’t know how much is ‘tomorrow’ left for us

And then in the caption, Yoo Ah In wrote his very own positive/optimistic poem as his reply to Hwang Byung Seung’s pessimistic poem:

# A reply to Hwang Byung Seung-nim # Holidays special feature:
There’s a courage in this untimely gaudy holiday,
I draw all the paintings for free.
Freedom unfolds in a pattern that matches the nature.
I don’t know how much is ‘today’ left for us?
‘Now’ -nature is in the full bloom

Then he added his own comment:

Oh yeah, holiday!

Master Sik is a superr genius poet! ❤


In the same day, November 24, Yoo Ah In posted the number of his instagram posts to commemorate his instagram account’s 4 years anniversary, and spoke about being on SNS for 4 years ^_^

He wrote the caption:

I have about 400 posts over the last four years. I worked hard. I did as much as I could. I expressed as much as I could express. I changed as much as I could and I got as close as I can to you. Let’s not waste our time and enjoy our freedom and connect with each other. From #VirtualRealityGame To #RealLife


And as his present in the “celebration”, Yoo Ah In posted two of his photos, taken from “Burning” film location, during GQ Korea photoshoot! 😍😍

Finally, he wrote the caption in English:

No make up, no fashion, no wax, no photoshop, no filter.
Just be natural,
Be in the moment
Only you and I. Just of us-
Let’s start from there.
Restart from there.


November 24 is not over yet! This time, he took twitter and had a long “chat” with random people and Megals. Read the chat here. He was trending that day due to the debate. Then, he screencapped his own twitter’s profile (which he would replace later in December)~

His witty old Twitter profile says:

140 letters of non-alcoholic combo performance filled with sincerity of the most average being. Special cautions: to be fully covered with writings


November 24 – After sharing a heartfelt and supportive letter from a military officer in his instagram, Yoo Ah In did live broadcast twice from his car on Saturday midnight and morning.

In his first live broadcast, he was listening to Radiohead “Nude”~


And at night after another round of twitter “discussion” (he mentioned that he was drinking 5 glasses of wine during that time, BTW), he did his second live broadcast while listening to Jay-Z and showing his superrr close-up face!

He read the comments, and in the end screamed, “Bye!” and, “Smile!!”  😄  

In the longer version of the clip (we didn’t record it), he said, “Happy Thanksgiving!”, and wrote a comment, “You all must live happily”. 


He posted his screencap from the live broadcast in his instagram too~

His caption:

Smile again!🐥

He deleted that post the day after, as promised.


November 25 – Huffington Post (Huffpost) Korea editor, showed his support to Yoo Ah In during the “zucchini” controversy by posting Yoo Ah In’s cover photo from GEEK magazine, May 2013 edition. He tagged Yoo Ah In’s private account too. Apparently, he was the one who interviewed Yoo Ah In for GEEK that year~

He quoted Yoo Ah In’s interview in the caption:

In 2013, I was working in Geek magazine. Now, I reread the interview with the 28 year-old (Korean age) Yoo Ah In. [Then he quoted Yoo Ah In’s words] “I wish I had as weak personality as my stormy identity/personality. But this is me, who flies into a rage [being too passionate]. And I hope I can keep on being passionate. Currently, I feel like this: no matter how hard an earthworm being stepped on, it doesn’t wiggle at all. Maybe I have become dull or drenched by inertia, or maybe I have become hardened enough that I could not approach anything sharply anymore. But I want to be softer, and I also want to be more tender. I immediately heard the thought bursting out of my head: it would be nice to get easily scratched/hurt too”.


November 26 – A woman shared her story in a Naver blog about her husband having a deep impression on Yoo Ah In after meeting with him at the “Burning” film location! 😀

This woman is a fan of Yoo Ah In. Her husband works at a a third-party logistic company for “Burning” film production. He went to the hotel in Paju, where the film crews, including the actors, were staying during the shooting.

My husband’s logistic company went to meet the [“Burning”] film people, so I asked him to bring me back two autographs [of the actors, including Yoo Ah In]. At first, I thought he wouldn’t do it, because my husband didn’t know Yoo Ah In that much. But when he came back in the evening, he brought back two autographs, and he became Yoo Ah In’s fan. My husband said that Yoo Ah In called him ‘hyung’ directly. Yoo Ah In didn’t have his dinner in a separate/private room in the hotel, instead, he ate together with the other actors/crews. [Note: she’s implying that although Yoo Ah In is a big star and the lead actor in this film, he doesn’t ask for an exclusive treatment].

As soon as he saw a ping-pong table, he played the table tennis together with them. He looked like a good little dongsaeng and a bright boy, unlike a star. [Note: we presume the hotel provides the recreation room/facilities for the crews because they’re staying in for months].

I’ve been a fan of Yoo Ah In too, and following him on SNS, and I always cheer him up/support him. I hope he can always feel that many people in this world are on his side 💪♥ Thank you so much for your autograph 🙏

We already knew that Yoo Ah In is super humble and he never considers himself a star, but every time I read warm stories from people who met/interacted with him in person/real life, I ended up choking 😭😭😭 Thank you for sharing, Ma’am.


November 26 – After posting his “I’m a Feminist” declaration in Facebook and having some banters with the Megals, Yoo Ah In did a very rare live broadcast, where he was strolling down the town (to his friend’s cafe “PP Seoul”), and talking a lot, and finally showing his smiling face! This is the first time he walked around and talked in live broadcast! 😀

Translations on his chat:

Hello everyone
The weather is good, right?
I want everyone to go with me
So, we should call everyone.. Ha ha ha…
Thank you
Not very cold
The fog is not good, but just staying home is not good either
I’m not gonna throw cigarette butts on the ground
Poor position from here [can’t see the scenery better from where he stood]
It is a nice world, right?
This is all there
We should be grateful, cherish it and be nice
I came out to drink coffee [he went to PP Seoul Cafe]
I’ll come back again [referring to his next live broadcast]

Here’s a special GIF from the live broadcast on his way to PP Seoul 😊


He also dropped his witty comment on his friend’s instagram who posted iPhone X animoji~


His friend’s caption reads: “baboobaboobab”  
And then Yoo Ah In dropped the comment: “Identity-stagram infection #dog”

LOL as usual, you and your cynical yet funny remarks :p


November 30 – Several days after posting his second and third Facebook letters in regards of the keyboard warriors aka Megalia, and after he encouraged media to report the facts and the truths, Yoo Ah In posted a beautiful afternoon sky and skyline photo. It looks so peaceful 😊 This time, no caption.


Can you imagine in one of his hardest times that he still keeps his positive attitude up, and even shares the good vibe and beauties around him with others?

    Wah, I’m so jealous of all these fans! I want to him in person too. 😭😭😭

    I love how he remains positive despite all the hate he received from those evil people. I pray he’ll always be like this~ humble, optimistic, fun-loving, pure, bold, unconventional, strong. Sigh. He’s one of a kind. 😍

  2. Kyi Kyi Soe says:

    Yoo Ah In : I have about 400 posts over the last four years. I worked hard. I did as much as I could. I expressed as much as I could express. I changed as much as I could and I got as close as I can to you. Let’s not waste our time and enjoy our freedom and connect with each other.

    It’s great that I become his fan during the peak times of his online postings. And, November 2017 was the hottest imo, even SikSeekers have to divide their records in two parts. However, you could give us all the details of the whole month in this way. For me, it really takes time to finish reading your compilation as I re-watch all video clips you’ve prepared for us. Worth it to wait for this article.

    Well done
    Fantastic! 💕👏👏💕

  3. Laura says:

    He has an overflowing positive energy that people can’t help but feel good and happy around him or just by listen to his voice. When we were so worried about his physical and mental condition, he showed us that he’s stronger than ever. He’s an old soul. His 30 year-old life has taught him a lot.

  4. Pina Pipino says:

    wishing YAI the best of life, health, happiness to his lofty spirit

  5. Soya says:

    He’s a beautiful old soul!!
