What is this? How the heck did Yoo Seung Ho find time in the midst of harried live shooting Missing You to jet off to Japan for a fan meeting? Couldn’t it wait until after the drama wrapped? Come to think of it, the fan meeting was scheduled already, which makes sense since MBC did needle Yoo Seung Ho to step into the role of Kang Hyung Joon when Chun Jung Myung turned it down so he could film a movie. I betcha baby boy thought he had the rest of the year clear after he wrapped Arang and the Magistrate. I wonder if he accepted the role having only gotten the first few scripts, which is usually how its done since the rarely does a scriptwriter actually have all the scripts completed beforehand. Or was he told about the complete character trajectory of his role and he liked what was in store? I’m curious because I would have a hard time buying how Hyung Joon might’ve killed the rapist and in the process tossed Soo Yeon under a bus since it was clear she would naturally be a suspect since she has motive. He’s too smart for that. But if he’s all evil then that’ll be cool, too. At least he gets to play the baddie like he wanted. For the fan meeting in Japan that was held over the weekend, which was primarily as a result of the well-received airing of Warrior Baek Dong Soo there (though I’m sure his popularity will shoot up once the obasans get a hold of all three mega-Hallyu projects – Operation Proposal, Arang, and now Missing You), Yoo Seung Ho played the piano and sang for his fans. Dayum! Is there anything he can’t do? I’m sure if he played and sang for his noona Yoon Eun Hye, she’d probably devolve into fits of girlish giggles. I know I would.
