Seo In Gook is Worried About How Viewers Will Take New Playboy Role in “Rascal Sons”


On September 18, cast members Lee Sung Jae, Ryu Soo Young, Seo In Gook, Myung Se Bin, Han Hye Rin, Yoon Se In, and Shin Da Eun participated in the press conference for MBC’s new weekend drama “Rascal Sons.”  MBC drama “Rascal Sons” follows the ups and downs of a family of three sons with the eldest son Yoo Hyun Gi played by Lee Sung Jae, middle son Yoo Min Gi played by Ryu Soo Young, and youngest son Yoo Seung Gi played by Seo In Gook. 

Talking about the difference in his role as Yoon Yoon Jae in tvN drama “Answer Me 1997” and his role as Yoo Seung Gi in MBC drama “Rascal Sons,” Seo In Gook said: “As opposed to thinking of the role as Yoon Yoon Jae who is unable to express his emotions, I think of Yoon Yoon Jae as a person who is honest to his emotions.  Yoon Yoon Jae always showed his feelings towards Sung Si Won.  My new role [of Yoo Seung Gi] is also of a person who is really honest.  The only difference in the roles is their preferences.”

Seo In Gook continued: “To put it simply, Yoon Yoon Jae loves only one person, and Yoo Seung Gi has different love morals.  Actually, I’m a bit afraid of what viewers will approach my new role.”   

In “Answer Me 1997,” Seo In Gook played the character of Yoon Yoon Jae who was the top student in his high school and eventually graduated from Seoul National University’s Law School and became one of the youngest judges in the nation.  Yoon Yoon Jae was completely head over heels for his childhood friend Sung Si Won, and, after many years, Yoon Yoon Jae finally gets together with his first love Sung Si Won.   

In “Rascal Sons,” Seo In Gook plays the character of Yoo Seung Gi who is a professional golf teacher and marries in his early twenties to Park Mi Rim.  But, though he does not cheat on her at the beginning, playboy Yoo Seung Gi does cheat and the two divorce after less than three years of marriage.  Yoo Seung Gi leaves his young son to his ex-wife Park Mi Rim to take care of and acts as if he is a single bachelor.  Eventually, Yoo Seung Gi gets caught by Han Song Hui and becomes enthralled by her.    

“Rascal Sons” premieres its first episode on September 22.  Check out thereleased posters for the drama.
