It started in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, a 2010 Korean historical drama depicting the life of the Sungkyunkwan scholars during the Joseon Era. The drama focused mainly on the life of the Four Sungkyunkwan Scholars called the Jalguem Quartet or what the fans called them "Joseon F4" and Yoo Ah In was one of them. He played the role of Moon Jae Shin, a moody and rebellious scholar. It was the first time I saw Yoo Ah In and then and there he caught my fancy. He was too sexy to snob with his long hair, full lips, sexy eyes and in rugged fighter ensemble completed with a bow and arrows tucked on his back. I was totally smitten! I dubbed him then Sungkyunkwan Scandal's Notable Actor.
After Sungkyunkwan Scandal, I started stalking Yoo Ah In (Lol). I searched every Korean Drama he was in. I saw Fashion King and he happened to be the lead actor opposite Shin Se-kyung. I watched it but quitted at the second episode after I read a comment that said he died on this drama. 😖 But I thought of finishing the drama. It's Yoo Ah In, enough reason!
Jang OK Jeong
Then a drama Jang Ok Jung came out in 2013 with Yoo Ah In being the lead actor opposite Kim Take Hee as Jang Ok Jung. Ah In portrayed the Crown Prince Lee Soon and later became King Sukjung of Joseon. Kim Tae Hee died in this drama as it was based on the real life of the royal concubine Jang OK Jung who was sentenced to death. But regardless, this drama with Yoo Ah In in it was a real gem. Heavy drama this was, but worth the watch.
Secret Love affair
This is the sexiest drama I have ever watched of Yoo Ah In. Two thumbs up for him on this because it challenged his versatility as an actor and he did it really well. He made me fall in love with him deeply in this drama. He is a great actor, that is pretty damn sure!
He played the role f a young man named Lee Sun-jae with a remarkable talent in paino he is unaware of. He worked as a quick delivery boy and met an Arts school director Hye Won, married and in her 40s who later unleashed Sun-jae's inner piano genius. The two later entangled in a passionate relationship, a secret love affair.
Six Flying Dragons
A 2015 drama Six Flying Dragons was another historical drama of Yoo Ah In. He portrayed Lee Bang Won, the 3rd Flying Dragon next to his father and teacher in their fight to end Goryeo and create a new era, Joseon. He later became the third King of Joseon. He reunited with Shin Se-kyung in this drama from Fashion King. Shin Se-kyung portrayed Boon Yi, Lee Bang Won's lover. Oh, I love them both together!
I am currently watching this drama and I am still at episode 19. Long way to go but I am already addicted to the story and to these lovebirds!
