Yoo Seung Ho to act with familiar co-star Park Eun Bin in ‘Operation Proposal’

A love interest has been cast for Yoo Seung Ho for his new drama Operation Proposal, and it’s a familiar co-star: Park Eun Bin, with whom he has acted multiple times in past projects. This is the time-traveling fantasy-romance drama adapted from Japan’s Proposal Daisakusen that’s set to air on cable channel TV Chosun in the new year.

Aw, that’s so cute: Some articles are calling it a reunion of “first loves,” since Park Eun-bin played Yoo Seung-ho’s very first love interest in 2007′s Legend, back when both actors were in their early teens (that drama filmed over two years so I believe they were barely adolescents when shooting it). He was the young King Dam-deok, while she played childhood sweetheart Kiha. They acted again in another sageuk project with 2010′s Queen Seon-deok, and followed that up in a music video for The One’s “Like a Star” with Taeyeon.

 

Operation Proposal starts out with our hero as an adult realizing that he’s in love with his friend just as she’s about to marry. Through a stroke of luck/fate/maaaagic, he gets sent back in time, and this time he’s determined to protect his first love.

Park plays that first love, whom the hero has cared for since their childhood days. They’re best buddies all the way from elementary school through university, and it looks like a case of missed timing for them, since she likes him but is unable to confess her feelings. In the end, she meets someone else and marries him instead.

Cute! It sounds like it’s got the potential to be comic fun but also potentially wring your heart at moments. And these are two child stars who have grown up so well, and into such solid actors. And to think, they’re both still teenagers — he’s 18, she’s 19.

Operation Proposal plans to premiere in February.

Yoo Seung Ho Decides to Forego College for Acting Career

Yoo Seung Ho Decides to Forego College for Acting Career

Yoo Seung Ho has decided to forego college for his acting career, despite receiving multiple special admissions offers from some of the top colleges in Korea, it was reported today by local media.

“It is true that Yoo Seung Ho received several special admissions offers from schools in Korea, but he respectfully declined all of them. So rumors about his special treatment are not true,” a representative from his agency said.

The official continued, “Currently, Yoo Seung Ho is extremely busy with his acting career. Even if he gets into college, he won’t be able to follow the school material and would only have a detrimental effect on other students. Yoo Seung Ho has made acting his biggest goal.”

“College is something Yoo Seung Ho will ponder over once he gets older and finds more time. When he has something he wants to learn more about, then he will start applying to colleges. We thought instead of Yoo Seung Ho, it would be bette off having other students get into college. This decision was made upon serious discussion with Yoo Seung Ho and his parents,” he said.

Since Yoo Seung Ho declared his intention to forego college this year, he will not take the Korean college admission test either. His agency said the decision to skip the nationwide college admission test was made when he was a junior in high school, and that he’s very satisfied with the decision.

The special college admissions for top celebrities have been a hot topic in Korea as many popular celebrities took advantage of their fame to earn special treatment from certain colleges. Due to the super competitive nature of Korea’s education system, many fans have been upset with the special, and easier, admission process for some of these celebrities.

Yoo Seung Ho has earned the respect of many fans for his impressive acting on recent film “Blind” and SBS drama “Warrior Baek Dong Soo.” His decision to forego college in order to give others better opportunities and reject any special treatment are expected to only increase his fan base and admiration for his personality.
