Meeting Yoo Ah In

I was supposed to watch “Wandeugi” on November 12th with my friends at CGV in Bucheon. However, my husband went to work that Saturday (after coming back from Italy!) and he fell asleep after coming home. So there was no one to take care of my son. Anyway, it would have been fun as I bought 20 tickets!
Luckily, Jasmine Lee told us that they would have a theater tour the following day near the area where I live. So without any hesitation, I went to Lotte Cinema in Nowon-gu on November 13th. I was there with three friends. We watched the moviegoers as we waited for the cast. Lots of fashionable Korean ladies with their dates. Anyway, the were to attend two screenings. After greeting the people who watched their movie, the cast of “Wandeugi” took a break and while they were walking to the rest area, Jasmine saw us. She asked Yoo Ah In first if it was okay to have his picture taken with us. He said yes to his “mom” and so we disturbed their 10-minute break. They were so tired after visiting theaters the whole day but he was still all smiles. He’s got really nice teeth. They were so white they reminded me of Ross in Friends ;p
I liked Yoo Ah In in “Sunggyunggwan Scandal”. I think he is a fine young actor and I’m glad that he took the role of “Wandeugi” ~ where he plays a Korean-Filipino boy 😀

Jasmine Lee took our picture! Anyway, she was so nice to sneaked us in. The following day, I saw the movie at CGV Yongsan – with English subtitles. The movie was entertaining. I laughed most of the time and got teary eyed in one particular scene. It has been seen by more than 4 million people here in Korea and it has been a consistent #1 for five weeks now!!!
