Yoo Hae Jin Expresses Affection For “Three Meals A Day” And Nam Joo Hyuk
In his newest film “Intimate Strangers,” he acted alongside Lee Seo Jin, who also appeared in a different season of “Three Meals a Day.”
Concerning that fact, Yoo Hae Jin said, “I met Seo Jin at the episode in Jeongseon. After the filming, I realized what kind of person he is.” Then he added, “While filming the movie, we didn’t talk much about variety shows. However, I realized he’s a very nice person. He says he’s rough, but I don’t think that’s all there is to him. He has many good points. He gives everything but never brags about it. He’s very generous. I’m also learning [from him].”
Yoo Hae Jin talked about how he longs to be on the show again, saying, “I miss it. My main job is an actor, so I continuously have productions to act in, so I can’t make time for [the show]. When I’m free, [Cha] Seung Won isn’t. Still, ‘Three Meals a Day’ is a good memory to me. The PD [producing director] made me feel very comfortable. It would be nice if I had a chance to do it with my schedule.”
He also mentioned Nam Joo Hyuk and his success in the movie “The Great Battle.” He proudly commented, “He has deep thoughts that are not suitable for his age. He thought about acting even while filming [‘Three Meals a Day’]. ‘The Great Battle’ succeeded, and he seems to be well established as an actor. I praise him.”
Yoo Hae Jin gave an update about his beloved corgi Gyeoul (Winter) that had appeared on the show as well. He said, “Gyeoul is happier when he comes with me to film in the countryside. It’s spacious, so he runs around. He’s already six years old, and I can feel that time is passing by.”
“Intimate Strangers” is a Korean remake of the 2016 Italian film “Perfect Strangers” and stars Yoo Hae Jin, Lee Seo Jin, Jo Jin Woong, Yum Jung Ah, Yoon Kyung Ho, Kim Ji Soo, and Song Ha Yoon. It tells the story of a group of people at a couples’ gathering who play a game where they are forced to reveal all phone calls and text messages they receive on their smartphones.
The movie recently celebrated a successful milestone of surpassing 1 million moviegoers in just four days.
