Yoo Seung Ho 유승호 ユ・スンホ 俞 承 豪 [completed drama : Bok Soo's back / My Strange Hero]

Not only smitten, we have a long list of noonas who have worked opposite him as his onscreen love interests. Its a relief that he kind of blurs the heroines whenever he comes onscreen otherwise the pairings would have looked really really weird.

 I'm not following you. what do you mean by he blurs the heroines ?  Most of his dramas are hero-centered , they focus more on the male lead than the heroine. Besides the romance is left on the background, it is not the main plot : Remember, warrior Baek Dong Soo ( the bromance between BDS and YW as more pushed forward than the romance) , Ruler, Flames of Desire too ( despite being the second lead, but his romance with Ingki was not the focus).

The act can be categorized as recklessness ( she probably didn't realize the seriousness of the situation and didn't see the bigger picture) but as long as she did not order the guy to be killed or killed him with her own hands she can't be exactly categorized as a murderer. Ordering arrest and killing are two very different things. The guy was responsible for his own death. Even though the reason of stealing water was justified. He fully knew what he was getting himself involved in. Daemok's underlings never let anyone slide. Even after she became the head of the group, its reins were being pulled by Daemok only. So it could be called as the PS group or Daemok's kill not hers.

Nobody was allowed in that field by Daemok. Not even Hwa Gun. She wasn't shown to have the knowledge right from the beginning and deliberately being indifferent to it.The only time she went to that field was to save LS that too secretly. She risked her life by setting her foot there.  She did die while saving LS , the girls and destroying the poppy field. I'd say her character wasn't fully developed. They needed the female lead to shine so deliberately left her character half baked. Like you said her character would have had development if she was allowed to live. However I don't see her as an outright cold hearted selfish villainess 

 

In my previous post I spoke about the biased views of fans, and their conspiracy of charcoaling certain characters. It goes both ways, there is also the danger of shielding characters and not reckoning their faults when they have messed up. I'm sorry to say this, but it is a fact HG messed up and is responsible for LS's dad death, whatever her motives were. She could have been reckless , it is debatable. But if she didn't threaten the guard and order him to catch LS's dad, his dad wouldn't have been arrested and then killed.  Without the arrest, he wouldn't have been dead. If HG wouldn't have threaten, it is not 100 % sure PS group would have killed LS's dad. This is an uncertainty, only HG and the guard within PS group knew who stole the water and that water was stolen. The guard let it slide because LS's dad managed to convince him.  If we want to argue about who is responsible for his death, three people come to my mind : Hwa Gun,  the dad and kkomoli ( Yes,  her too ! because if his wife wasn't pregnant, the dad wouldn't have stolen the water). Besides I have never said she killed him, I said she provoked his death and is the reason he died. You can be responsible for someone's death without killing her/ him. 

 

I went back watching that scene and I stand correct.  Here is the dialog between the Crown prince and Hwa Gun when HG discovered he wasn't dead. Moreover, she went to the poppy field because she wanted to hurt his dad who took her most precious thing, the Crown Prince. When she went there, she believed he was dead. She wanted to destroy the poppy field and she met the crown prince when she was about to save the Crown prince's guard. He was tied and tortured.  The scene is on episode 32, if you want to watch it , more precisely at around 14:00

 

So the following dialog is this

  HG -  You are alive. Thank you for beng alive

Crown prince : What are you... doing here ? 

HG :  - You came to save Chung Woon ( CP's guard), right ? 

 ( the crown goes to save him and he talk a bit with Chung woon) 

HG : I'm not sure how you have survived.  It is too dangerous to stay here,  the guards may arrive soon.  You should leave quickly...

CP : I... cannot leave alone.  I shall save all the children in here and leave with them.  I have watched those children who make the poppy pils.  They handle the poison with their bare hands.  The poison seeps through their skin. When a fatal dose is absorbed, red spots appear.  Then the children ... will end up dying.  is my prediction, right ? 

HG : Yes. 

CP: You discard the dead  bodies and bring in new children.

HG : You are right. 

CP : Why does it have to be young girls ? 

HG :  I heard they make those with small and fragile hands, pick petals so that the poppy will not be damaged. 

CP: I will not let those chilren wait for their death. I will save them now

HG : I understand. Save them. 

 

 In conclusion, the dialog is a proof HG knew all along PS group used young girls to make the poppy pils, she knew the corpses were discarded,  she didn't think about saving them when she planned initially to destroy the poppy field ( without knowing at that time the CP was alive). So she was indifferent about their fate from the beginning. It is only with CP's insistance that she agreed to save them. 

The reason she got killed was because the writer created a too powerful second female lead, as the series progressed she became more and more powerful while the other characters became weaker and weaker, including the Crown Prince. How many times did she save the crown prince ? How many times did she help him ?  It came to a point where he constantly needed her help , he became a damsel in distress too. Thus it is not because the writer wanted  only the female lead to shine. As soon as HG died, the CP and the GE finally had their spot restored and shined.

The mediocre scripts like those deserved an average actor not him. Even I want him to be the first choice of directors and script writers and that too good ones. Its beyond me that why the makers aren't utilizing his acting talents and settle for pretty average actors for good projects. They have a gem in their industry and its sad to see them not utilizing it fully. 

I think the answer is quite simple. The industry is too competitive and cut-throat. Only the  ( younger) actors who stay on the spotlight, make into the news regularly get the better scripts. Unfortunaly YSH is  an actor who is not competitive compared to his peers. He doesn't bag CF deals, he doesn't do magazine photoshoots on a regular basis, he doesn't attend events. To put it into a nutshell, he is disadvantaged when he stays far away from the spolight. Once he finishes a project, he goes into ninja mode and barely does official activities. So in my opinion this affects his chances of getting better scripts.

He must have been practicing really hard for the past year. Maybe now we know what he does when he isn't acting ? lol.  Car racing or not I just want to see him in a good show soon because the top people are not in town. Its a golden opportunity for him. Lets see if his luck decides to finally work the odds in his favour

 We have now another field to cheer for him besides acting ! This is the positive point. so even if he becomes a ninja after his projects, fans know now where to look for.  I initially thought he would be back before the end of the year / in the last quarter, his interviews after IANAR made me hopeful. He was full of positivity despite how IANAR flopped hard ratings-wise.  But now the prospects of seeing him before the end of the year are fading away. I don't want to see him coming back in rush with a drama badly promoted like IANAR and the casting being completed very quickly. If we have waited for 7 months, we can wait more for him. I also wish the odds will be in favour. If he comes back in the first quarter of next year, it will be good. He just needs a good drama, only one drama to rise higher.

Yoo Seung Ho Confirmed As Lead Of New SBS Drama

Sep 3, 2018
by esspee

Yoo Seung Ho is starring in a new TV drama!

On September 3, SBS announced, “Yoo Seung Ho will portray the main character in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Revenge is Back’ (working title) which will air as the follow-up drama to ‘Star of the Foxes.'”

“Revenge is Back” is a fun, school romance. It will tell the story of a boy named Kang Bok Soo who gets expelled after being wrongly accused of being a school violence perpetrator. He returns to the school as an adult to seek revenge, but gets unexpectedly swept up in another incident.

Yoo Seung Ho will appear as Kang Bok Soo, who gets expelled, does work for other people, tries to seek revenge, and also has a clumsy side to him. His character reenters Seol Song High School in order to get revenge on his first love Son Soo Jung, who made him get expelled. However, he’s unable to find his footing in the changed atmosphere of the school and will show a goofy side to him.

The SBS drama department said, “Yoo Seung Ho’s kind nature, friendly appearance, and optimistic personality are similar to those of main character Kang Bok Soo. Kang Bok Soo reenters Seol Song High School in order to become a small hero, but the school is no longer a place for love and romance. What will he look like as an old, silly returning student? Yoo Seung Ho will be able to show the charms of a failed, small hero.”

“Revenge is Back” will be written by rookie writer Kim Yoon Young and directed by Ham Joon Ho who previously co-directed “Wok of Love.” The drama is scheduled to air in December.

Are you excited to see Yoo Seung Ho in a new drama?

Hello, unfortunately there's no such place to find information. YSH's agency doesn't have a website in which we can look for his schedule. When he does public appearances, he takes his fans by surprise and doesn't announce it beforehand. As for his fanmeetings, his korean fanmeetings where organized by his korean official fanclub that has been dissolved in June. Thus I don't know how his fanmeetings in korea will be organized from now on. For his japanese fanmeetings, I believe there will be managed/scheduled by his official japanese fanclub from now on. There is a fanmeeting in Philippines underway but nothing is concrete. Lastly, unlike his peers he hasn't ever done a fanmeeting tour... maybe we need to wait more to see him going on tour :). If it happens, I'm sure his fans around the world will relay the news. I mostly look at fan accounts to keep being updated about him.

The chance of meeting him are really scarce :unsure:, unless you take a flight and go to Japan/ Korea for a fanmeeting. In June he visited Malaysia and attended an opening of a store though.  He held a fan sign event. Thus he might come to your country and attend another event like this...

Yoo Seung Ho To Make Cameo In Upcoming Drama “Player” by yshin

Yoo Seung Ho will be making a special appearance in OCN’s upcoming drama “Player”!

On September 28, a source from OCN stated, “Yoo Seung Ho will make his cameo appearance in the first episode of ‘Player.’ Please stay tuned for what role he will take through the broadcast.”

According to the source, Yoo Seung Ho accepted the cameo [request] due to his ties with the production staff and Song Seung Heon.

“Player” is a refreshing action drama about a genius con artist (played by Song Seung Heon), a naturally gifted driver (played by f(x)’s Krystal), an acknowledged top hacker (played by Lee Si Eon), and a top notch fighter (played by Tae Won Suk). These “players” team up to pull off the ultimate heist.

Yoo Seung Ho was recently confirmed to return to the small screen through SBS’s upcoming romantic comedy “Revenge is Back” (working title), which is slated to air in December.

With less than a day left until its premiere, OCN drama “Player” has released still images of Yoo Seung Ho and Hong Suk Chun’s cameos in the first episode!

“Player” is a caper drama about an elite team of four criminals who join forces to pull off the ultimate heist. Song Seung Heon will star as the talented con artist Kang Ha Ri, while f(x)’s Krystal will be playing Cha Ah Ryung, the country’s top driver. Lee Si Eon will play the role of brilliant hacker Lim Byung Min, and Tae Won Suk will round out the team as the top-notch fighter Do Jin Woong.

Yoo Seung Ho will play the role of a new security guard who faces Kang Ha Ri and Hong Suk Chun will play the role of Cha Ah Ryung’s driver’s license test supervisor.

As a new hotel security guard, Yoo Seung Ho will go up against Kang Ha Ri, who visits the hotel to carry out a plan to recover the proceeds of his crime. He will become restless at Kang Ha Ri’s deceitfulness and eloquent speech. Yoo Seung Ho is said to have had a great time on set as he had warm conversations with his senior Song Seung Heon.

 

A source from the drama stated, “Yoo Seung Ho and Hong Suk Chun, who readily accepted the role through their relationships with the producers and actors, delivered great energy on set and gave great support to the drama.” They also asked viewers to watch the live broadcast as the meeting between Song Seung Heon, Yoo Seung Ho, Krystal, and Hong Suk Chun will be seen in the first broadcast of “Player.”

Song Seung Heon later uploaded a photo himself posing with Yoo Seung Ho on his Instagram, showing off their friendship.
