“Narco-Saints” has been gaining popularity by maintaining the number one spot on Netflix’s Top 10 in Korea.
Among them, Yoo Yeon-seok, who played the role of David Park, an advisor who is in charge of legal advice for the organization of “drug lord” Jeon Yo-hwan (Hwang Jung-min), is drawing keen attention.
This is because he played the role of the friendly pediatrician Ahn Jung-won in tvN’s “Hospital Playlist” in 2020 and 2021, and this time he played the role of a good-for-nothing Korean-American, showing a totally opposite image.
Yoo Yeon-seok shared that a passenger sitting next to him on the train was watching “Narco-Saints”
Amid the “Narco-Saints” craze, Yoo Yeon-seok revealed an episode on the train while talking to his fans through the paid communication app “Universe.”
He said, “I came to Seoul by SRT right after filming the drama. But something really interesting happened on the train.”
Yoo Yeon-seok described that he sat next to a woman on the train, who was watching something with earphones on. “But I suddenly came out on the screen,” he said, “She was watching ‘Narco-Saints’ enthusiastically.”
Yoo Yeon-seok said, “The situation was funny,” adding, “I couldn’t go to the bathroom for two and a half hours and just sat there looking at the window.”
He seems to have made such a move because he thought that the woman sitting next to him could create an embarrassing situation if she recognized him.
Yoo Yeon-seok even said he couldn’t answer his friend’s call, causing fans to laugh.
The reason why you have to check the face of the person sitting next to you on public transportation (?)
Yoo Yeon-seok said, “I can’t just suddenly said ‘Hello, I’m Yoo Yeon-seok. Is ‘Narco-Saints’ fun, right?”
Fans who saw this laughed out loud and responded, “I will check the face of the person next to me when I get on the train from now,” and “She may have recognized Yoo Yeon-seok’s face and played ‘Narco-Saints’ on purpose.”
Meanwhile, Yoo Yeon-seok made his film debut in 2003 as the young Lee Woo-jin, a role played by Yoo Ji-tae in director Park Chan-wook’s film “Old Boy.”
Since then, he has appeared in the movie “Architecture 101” and the movie “Werewolf Boy,” proving his skill to the public.
In addition, Yoo Yeon-seok was greatly loved for playing the role of Chilbong, a baseball player who has a crush on the main character Sung Na-jung (Go Ara) in tvN’s “Reply 1994” in 2013.
Yoo Yeon-seok, who is 39 years old this year but still maintains the appearance of someone in their 20s, is also widely known as an “actor” who can play both villain and good guy roles.
Attention is focusing on what he will show in the future, as he continues to work and entertains the public greatly every year.
