Earning a living as a driver for rental cars, Ki-su lives in a basement studio. When he feels trapped, he maintains hope by playing the drums. Out of guilt that he might have done wrong to Jong-dae who was sexually harassed during their younger days, Ki-su acts more as Jong-dae’s guardian than merely his friend. Jong-dae’s dream is to keep a revolver that can make him stronger than the small-time gangsters in town. One day Ki-su’s older brother shows up and leaves his son Yo-han to Ki-su’s care.
Yoo Ah-in: 'I Can Do Everything in Front of Camera' 2011/10/17, Source,
Actor Yoo Ah-in, who played the protagonist named Wan Deuk in the movie "Punch", said during an interview on October 13, "There are things that I have to give up simply because I am an actor, but I can do everything and I can give up everything in front of a camera while filming. I do not feel scared even though I am actually a timid person. I can even die as an actor". He looked very serious while saying, "Attitude and viewpoint are important".,...More

“But I'm just a 25-year-old small actor,” reasoned Yoo Ah-in during the interview. Nonetheless there are certain things in life that cannot be measured by size. True to his words Yoo is by all means not a big Hallyu Star who makes big bucks every year nor an accomplished actor with years of experience. But the most important question here is how 'irreplaceable' he is. And so far, the answer is that he is not, both as an actor and as his plain self. Sure, there have been many young actors who have been icons of youth. They all carried that air of restlessness typical of young age, expressing defiance toward the world they live through a melancholy gaze or other helpless gestures. But Yoo has been youth itself,...More
[INTERVIEW] Actor Yoo Ah-in - Part 1 2010/11/12, Source,
Actor Yoo Ah-in [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]
Actor Yoo Ah-in has played a variety of roles, particularly of characters in their youths from different walks of life starting with the sweet high schooler in KBS TV series "Sharp" to the lost teenager in film "Boys of Tomorrow" to the lonely warrior in KBS' "Mighty Chil-woo" to the energetic patissier aspirant in film "Antique" and the 'guy these days' in KBS' "He Who Can't Marry". Then most recently, he was Moon Jae-shin in KBS drama "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" who was the outsider of royal academy SungKyunKwan, a fighter who resists corrupt society, and a romantist who watched the woman he loves from afar -- the very symbol of youths experiencing growing pains.
Yoo is 24 now and has grown a beard on his tanned face but whenever he smiles, he goes back to being the fair-complexioned boy whom viewers first saw on screen seven years ago. 10Asia met with the actor who came up with his own stage name Ah-in, meaning 'ein' in German, to constantly remind himself that he is a unique being in this world. It was not easy keeping up with the numerous ideas existing within the young man but it was definitely worth hearing.
10: You wrapped up filming of "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" on the day it ended its run. How have you spent the past few days? I think you must've been busy doing everything you hadn't been able to recently. Yoo Ah-in: I've been drinking the whole time since I don't have to work at night. (laugh) But no matter till how late I drink, I've been waking up early because it's become a habit from filming "Sungkyunkwan Scandal". It makes me angry. (laugh) I actually get drunk pretty easily, maybe off half a bottle of soju [Korean vodka]? And I stay that way until I pass out. But I can't pull all-nighters anymore. I go home at around two or three in the morning. Why am I talking about drinking?,...More
