Seo In-gook for Allure and Elle Girl

It’s photo spreads galore for the bright-eyed leads of Answer Me 1997, which ended its run today. [PLEASE NO FINALE SPOILERS HERE.] It was really fun to see what started out as a small cable series become such a buzz show, and get so much media attention for the cast and crew.

Leading man (er, boy… man-boy) Seo In-gook is getting the bulk of the attention, but I think it’s warranted — not just because he’s purrrrty, but because he really did act his heart out as the insecure teenage boy who probably thought a thousand times before buying a stick of gum. Here he is in spreads for Allure and Elle Girl, where the concept seems to be that he doesn’t much want to be wearing his clothes. I think we can work with that.

The 25-year old singer and actor debuted on the reality audition show Superstar K, and 1997 was his first starring role. About his character, Seo said: “I didn’t know I would meet a character like Yoon Yoon-jae and receive this much love. Each and every day is happy and joyful.” He’s going right away from one ensemble drama to the next, and has already been filming for weekend drama Rascal Sons. “The reason I chose a long 50-episode weekend drama is because I wanted to watch and learn from more teachers and sunbaenims.”

About his working relationship with co-star Jung Eun-ji and their dating rumors: “Even when there were no cameras we spoke in our accents and played Yoon-jae and Shi-won. The reason I worked hard to be friendly with Eun-ji-sshi is because I know how important it is for a man and woman to have chemistry. I wanted the audience to feel that from us. If there’s a scandal [rumors] then I figure we succeeded.” Aw, but if you DID have a massive crush on her, you would be a total spazz about it right? *Refuses to believe you are not your fictional character*

Seo’s new weekend drama Rascal Sons premieres this Saturday on MBC.

I'm loving Seo In Gook and whenever I see him I just think of that puppy. Just replace human body with puppy and it's basically the same thing :). Adorable nonetheless.

All these spreads just make me think Dramabeans needs a Reply 1997 banner :). Maybe I should make one...

Do make one, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE~!!!

Do make 3:
-one for the Yoon-jae Shi-won couple (meh, like so legit in the drama already)
-one for the entire cast during the 1997 days
-one for the shippers of Yoon-jae and Jun-hee. XD (just use Hoya's pics from Inspirits, there's many of the HoGod~...XD)

I love his acting but honestly I just hope his acting success brings more attention to his singing. He has a wonderful voice and has released really good stuff in the past that its sad that he wasn't getting much attention during his music promotions. Hopefully his current success helps change that.

I read somewhere that the last episode of "Answer me 1997" got 63% ratings. Is this true?

Required fields are marked *

Woah, a double digit rating? Are you serious...?
Hun, "Answer Me 1997" is a cable show, ergo, single digit ratings more than 1% are the norm in cable ratings...

Unless youre associating 63% with, um, 1995 "Sandglass" or 1997 "First Love" (the 1st Bae Yong-joon & Choi Ji-woo love team drama)...?

I read live rating from tving (online streaming) was 63%, I reckon the ratings will be around 5% which is really good for a cable drama.

I read that too somewhere on tumblr but I'm not sure...there wasn't a source for the post either.
There is this however, an average rating of 7.55% and highest 9.47% is still incredible! (http://enewsworld.mnet.com/enews/contents.asp?idx=15381&idxType=News&trendKeyword=Reply%201997#)

It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that Lee Min-ho and Seo In-gook are the same age. In-gook seems like such a (sexy, 100% legal) baby to me!

Kinda amazing that SIG had to be discovered in a reality talent show; but then again, he came from a poor background so it was probably more difficult to break in with the major entertainment companies.

Yeah, he is HOT. Even before he lost weight for this role. Watch his live performance of Tease Me. He still was HOT, more manly.

The only thing is his lazy eye, but I feel that it makes it even more unique than just pretty boy.

O no ! I'm in love. His voice, his acting, his everything. Thank god his new drama is next week. Despite being 50 episode, I will plough through it. Even if I have to skip to his parts only.

I think SIG is a lot more chirpy than Yoon-jae and so cute. Yoon-jae is also so diff from his character in Love Rain. Look forward to his new drama, altho I'm not sure if I can last watching 50 episodes... altho I think I can definitely read the 50 recaps from dramabeans. :D

From the first interview I saw him without shiwon I could tell he is very different from Yoon Jae. It's a good strategy, to play your characters even off camera. While I believe that Eun Ji might have a character similar to shiwon's, I highly doubt he is similar to Yoon Jae.

SIG is so fine. I just finished AM1997 and I loved it! I can't believe he was born in 1987 too! That's one lucky year, and I was born in that year too, so I'm so glad I have soooo many sexy guys who are the same age as me...Knowing that also clears up my crazy feeling that I was fangirling over a guy much younger than me, lol, not that I don't already (King of Heaven).
