(IU's Palette) Hi, this is 'IU's Palette' I'm the MC, IU Today, our guest is an actor Most of the guests on the show have been musicians so I got to talk with them and hear them sing But today it's different, which makes me feel a bit nervous I always do feel a bit nervous Anyway, today's guest I'm sure the viewers will be surprised to see him as well We have Byun Yohan with us today, it's nice to see you It's nice to see you I'm Byun Yohan I've seen you only on TV I felt half worried and half excited to meet you and talk to you so closely in person Could you tell us what made you come out on Palette? I filmed a movie, and I wanted to advertise it But for IU's Palette, after we rehearsed and staying here...
made me feel glad about coming out here I'm not sure how the show will actually turn out We hadn't started filming So you needed to advertise your movie I also happened to record the Palette at the time Then, I heard you are coming and thought that would be so fun But what if people are confused? Why are you there...? Why are you there...? You briefly mentioned your movie When people talk about their movies, they normally say the title too The movie title... isn't a secret, is it? I'll explain it briefly It's called <The Book of Fish> It will premiere on March 31 It's a story about Jung Yakjeon who was exiled in Heuksan-do during Catholic Persecution of 1801 As soon as Jung Yakjeon arrived in Heuksan-do, he took more interest at the sea more than the books and I become his friend there I'm a fisherman who lives on the island But in reverse, I became more interested in books than the sea We start sharing our knowledge and respecting each other
It's a story of how two men become a teacher and student After I heard you are coming here, I did some research I saw the teaser and learned that it's in black and white Director Lee Joon-ik's black and white movie I really loved the movie <DONGJU; The Portrait of A Poet> It's similar to that movie, right? As another black and white film? <DONGJU; The Portrait of A Poet> is in black and white, but it's more than black than white It's dark... (Awkward) I'm being too serious Why do you feel ashamed? It's good to be serious That has more of the black But our movie has more white to it For acting in such a movie, some of the pros and cons of acting in a black and white film is that there's no color around you The actors can capture the audience's attention solely through their eyes and voices The con is you can't fake anything in front of the camera This film provided a lot of training so it holds dear in my heart I know that you've worked on numerous films,
starting with independent movies Is this your first time working on a black and white film? It is The movie's characteristics The director's directing They make it impossible to be disingenuous in the film So even if you don't try to be perfect with your acting, it becomes good in its own way In our pre-interview, we really wanted to ask you this question You mentioned a lot as you don't wanna talk much about the movie But you are here to advertise your movie This was true for the previous films I worked on as well I tried not to participate in promotional events Why not? Does it make you feel awkward? That's part of it I didn't want to cause discomfort To the viewers? I'm fine with feeling uncomfortable by myself But I tried to avoid those events, hoping not to cause any discomfort But after filming <The Book of Fish>, my attitude has changed in many ways
I realized I can be beautiful just the way I am So I wanted to participate more in promoting this movie This must be such a great movie I won't talk about it anymore It's great He said several times that he won't talk much about the movie I was thinking he will be here to promote his movie But he said he won't advertise it So I thought I also feel awkward a lot Do you also avoid throwing birthday parties? If others throw one for me, I'm on If that happens, I like it very much You and I are different then But you do need to talk about it to promote the movie It premieres on March 31 Anyway, Byun Yohan said from early on that he doesn't want to talk much about the movie so we won't ask him anymore about the movie We promise you we won't talk about it Let's make it a promise (Could the promise be kept...?) Since we said we will not talk about the movie,
I prepared some questions regardless to the movie Since I heard the movie is about water, the seas, I got curious, do you like sashimi? I like sashimi I wondered if you could be blindfolded without any information, eat sashimi (Does she want me to... guess it...?) and guess which fish it is While being blindfolded? That's nice - Please bring in the sashimi - I'll close up my eyes then Do not open your eyes Is it possible to guess it though? (This mullet & halibut will put 'Changdae', a young fisherman, to a test) Although we've never met before, since his eyes are closed, I'll feed him It's coming Here (Who I am?) This is halibut It's halibut Wait, it's not halibut...? (Memories at Heuksan-do are leaving him) Is this seabream? Is it rockfish? Rockfish and halibut are a bit similar This is mullet
Is it mullet? (Awkward) It's mullet, okay then Let's try one more (Dispirited) (Second answer: mullet again) (Savoring it with his eyes closed) What could that be? You need soju to cleanse your pallet... You need to get rid of the flavor (Chamisul IU is looking pleased) It could get confusing if the flavors get mixed up What could it be? (I'm Changdae... I know all about fish...) What is it? Snapper (Why is she laughing...?) I'll give you one more chance to switch - It's your final chance - It's halibut - Are you sure it's halibut? - I'm sure it's halibut I'll ask you one final time It's halibut Is it halibut? It's halibut It's mullet (She tricked him while his eyes were closed) (So fun) I got halibut and mullet For both times, I gave you mullet (A big success) (He had no idea) Really? You are mischievous I guess you didn't have mullet too often Mullet is hard to distinguish though (Very difficult) It has a confusing... (Very difficult) It has a confusing flavor But we got to confirm that he likes sashimi
Do you... normally (Embarrassed) You aren't already... regretting that you came here? No, I love it (Impromptu MC IU) We are almost going totally off the script Just don't make me sing all of a sudden (Tempted) If you make me sing right after eating sashimi, I won't be able to breathe We should talk for a bit more then... You did not expect that you'll be eating sashimi on Palette, right? I never expected that you'll be feeding me I never imagined I'll be blindfolded But you knew that we are a show - where people sing, right? - I don't know if I said the right thing Should we do it now then? (IU is most excited when she's teasing) With this excitement - Let's do it then - Will you do it? We asked which song you would like to sing and you've pick this one right away (Yohan saw the drama <Run On>) I saw this drama since people I know are in it Kim Na Young sang this song and she sang it so well I love the song Also, I looked her up on her YouTube channel
and she was very hard working I like hard working people So... The Book of Fish... Sorry, we decided not to talk about the movie Warning Yellow card (2nd warning) I'm here for The Book of Fish... (3rd warning) I'm here for The Book of Fish... (It's a violation if you cross the line beep) (Unrelated to the movie) I just wanted to sing this song It has nothing to do with the movie It doesn't at all and it doesn't even suit my personality It's the original sound track for the drama <Run On> He'll sing Kim Na Young's <Where Are You> Let's give him an applause (IU's Palette) (Where Are You(Byun Yohan Ver)) (Music director, Jehwi) (Music director, Jehwi) (Sukhoon Jeong, Kyung-ah Yang, Seo Donghwan) Thank you Thank you (IU's Palette) (Sung with simple and charming voice, Byun Yohan's version of <Where Are You>) Are you pleased with it? I sang with all of my heart and soul You stood up and sang it
You sang while walking around It was super cool - Seriously - Thank you Before you came here, I asked Kim Eana a few things I told her you are coming out on Palette I told her I never met him and don't really know his personality So she gave me a few ideas I heard you record things I'm so thankful that you recorded it So I did record it I even zoomed in and filmed the entire body (Loving it) (Loving it) Like this - I'll send it to you later - Thank you For me, in Palette, it's my first time hearing an actor sing I was imagining how it would go But listening to you made me think that it's always nice to listen to someone sing I actually love it when actors sing Regardless of their singing skills or techniques...
Did I show off some skills or no? - Skills? - Did I do it or not? You did a little bit You added a bit of vibrato - I was nervous X2 - You bended the notes You are a good singer though No, I was nervous You do musicals too That nervousness and since you are an actor, you focused and sounded so sincere It was all very nice It spoke to the heart Thank you (IU's Palette) From some people I know, from the people who are mutual friends with you, I collected some stories about you Of the few things I was told, I'll talk about a few that were interesting (Anonymous report) It's anonymous (Anonymous report) Let me guess who it is (Anonymous report) We got an anonymous report While this person was filming with you, he wasn't speaking directly with you but I think you heard him talk with someone else He gets car sick very easily It must be Shim Dalgi
(It was told by actress Shim Dalgi) (who was with IU in<PERSONA-Kiss Burn>) A certain actress I think I remember it a bit You heard her say that she gets car sick very easily and sent her a link for glasses that helps in reducing car sickness This was told by actress Shim who is in the same company, SARAM ENTERTAINMENT, with you You even sent her a picture of the carsickness prevention classes. Do we have it ready? These are those glasses The reviews for it Let me tell you what happened We were waiting during a filming session I don't know why we were talking about getting car sick But we were so I learned that she gets car sick easily and looked up carsickness on my way home and I got this as a search result - There were so many reviews for it - You never used it before, though? It's such a funny picture It's such special glasses
(Simulating carsickness) (IU tries it on) Let me test it first... Let me try it... I bought these with my own money Nice to meet you Do I look really funny too? (Maybe) - Do I look funny? - You look... fine (Looking away) You look very funny right now (Failed at not laughing) Since it prevents carsickness, it must prevent nausea I should wear these when I feel nervous... (Got used to it) It's perfect for that (Can't get used to it) I love these When it shakes... it's nice If this happens, if you get carsick, it means there's some motion These would move along with it and disperse the shakiness and put you at ease psychologically Do you think you feel less nervous? I love it We are doing many weird things on our first meeting - You can keep them on - I'll keep them on then I want to look good though I'll take them off for the show So I was told that she was impressed by your show of care Are you usually that caring?
(Am I caring...) (Cracking up) (Serious) (Doesn't get it) Why do you laugh? You look like you are the innovator of those glasses (Looking like the glasses innovator) I'm a bit clumsy and all (Hahahaha) (Can't breathe) I've had people tell me that I am caring Now that we heard you sing, <The Book of Fish>, it's okay for me to talk about it While you were working on <The Book of Fish>, were there songs or playlist that you listened to a lot? Could you tell us what they are on Palette? I'm sure it works the same way for you and many other actors I choose songs that fits the theme and do image training with them With The Heart To Forget You by Kim Kwang-Seok SEOL KYUNG GU loves that song So once we are done filming, we would listen and sing while drinking So by the time it's over...
I did a cover of that song (Blinking) There's an IU version Have you listened to it? (Restless) Yohan, you aren't feeling carsick since you took the glasses off, are you? I think I am He keeps going... Your cover (Overcame carsickness) I didn't get a chance to hear yours, I'm sorry It's fine I love other songs by you though Which of my songs do you like? I love <Love poem>, <Through the Night>, and <It's You> <It's You> I listened to so many of your songs Did you hear my new song? X2 Cut X3 NIKE (*IKE is confused) My album is coming out soon I'll March 25th How did you know? (Whew... I redeemed myself...) I'll watch the movie Yohan on March 25th when my regular album comes out I'll listen to it For me, that's not hard to do I've also been listening to your songs
I listen to <Love poem> when I work out You listen to <Love poem> when you work out? But for most people, when you work out, don't you need some fast song that will keep your heart rate up? Why do you listen to <Love poem>...? (Pleased) Wasn't that a good answer? (Endless compliment for you) That was great X2 (Endless compliment for you) Give him a hand (Endless compliment for you) Compliment him This deserves a cut, anyway It's very lyrical and emotional The lyrics and all (<Love poem> is encouraging) are very encouraging I listen to this when I'm doing the hardest workout I do boxing I'll do sparring for 3 minutes The final 30 seconds are the hardest <Love poem> is a bit over 4 minutes, right? Once I hear the song end, I won It means I didn't lose in that round It makes me feel so happy It also means I defeated myself So that's how you listen to <Love poem> (He feels carsick once he finishes talking) He's having withdrawal symptoms for these carsickness glasses... So we requested you to choose a song for us to sing together
and you picked <Love poem> I didn't know about this back story you had at the time <Love poem>, first of all, is a hard song But if it's that meaningful to you, I understand why you chose it I often tried very hard to really feel the meaning of the lyrics at the final minute Let's sing it with the same emotion when you had at the final 3 minutes I'd appreciate it if you could sing it like that for Palette's viewers I must sing it like this then (Inhale, exhale) (I'm so tired) You must pant Let's sing <Love poem> with that same feeling (How will Byun Yohan sing <Love poem> with that same feeling...?) (Love poem) Oh, my goodness What? I said 'for you' instead of 'at that place' Actually, when I was writing the lyrics I wanted to write for you in parentheses Really? I wanted to say for you I didn't have enough syllables so I wrote 'at that place' But you understood that So it's supposed to be 'for you'
I'll change the lyrics to 'for you' (IU's Palette) Wow How was it? It was an honor It was an honor for me as well While singing it with you, it felt like I was dreaming for a moment Wow We rehearsed for the first time today and performed it just now It felt very new I almost always sing it as the final song in my concerts I also sing it, feeling like it's a 3 minute sparring for me I sing it after 3 hours of singing I sing it when my voice is feeling all tired I try to use all of the energy that I have left for that song But singing it together, first of all, felt easier Actually, you sang all the hard parts It felt easier Also, listening to your voice helped me to concentrate and sing the next part It was nice to go back and forth I felt super happy I'm sure the viewers loved it (Is this place heaven...?)
What did that mean? I have no idea I felt too happy It's a shout of joy IU's Palette is the best Like and subscribe? Is this what you do? (Keeping it in my heart) What's this? Did you like and subscribe? X2 Not yet... Should I do it now? (A drama with a plot twist) (Feeling serious by himself) How do you do it? (Feeling serious by himself) What a surprise (Doesn't know how to do it) How do you do it? I don't have an ID but I'll make it - Like and subscribe - How... how do you do that? I'll do it in advance It's not something you can do here Do you go like this? (Why is she laughing?) Now that we sang a song that's very emotional I wanted to change the atmosphere (Her pronunciation is malfunctioning) I looked you up online It's Byun Yohan - What did I say? - Byunohan Byun Yohan, Yohan has a lot of funny memes I got a few, do you want to take a look?
(Once upon a time, there lived a pretty John) (One day, a beard devil came to John) (and cast him a spell which made him wear a beard, glasses, and beanie forever) (Old lady fans got so mad they decided to pull his beard out) (The fans succeeded and danced and threw a party every day) (But the fans failed again and became very sad) (In the end, "only" John lived ever after) (Could John in crisis return?) Do you remember what that is? (A scary fairy tale about Yohan's beard) It's funny (A scary fairy tale about Yohan's beard) Did you edit and upload it yourself? I didn't make it My fans made it for fun I shared it You look so good with the beard I've heard that from many people I like it myself too Do the fans like you without it? (Fans: Done with the drama, shave please) They want me to shave after a film But even after I was done, I got too lazy... Do I have to keep talking about shaving? Which shaver do you use? - I use BRAUN - BRAUN It must work super well I'm the model for BRAUN, it works in the blind spots as well Are you the model for BRAUN? We don't get sponsored or anything But he had so much hair before but now it's all gone
Just call it a beard, please - What hair? - He had such thick hair It's not like you are planting rice here I can see that it's all gone from here I heard you didn't do it with a laser anything I'm sure it must be a great shaver Also, I found another thing in Instagram I saw a picture of you as a kid That's That picture Have you been preparing for <Misaeng> since you were that young? You look 100% the same as Han Seok-yool How did that happen? That's photoshopped Is it photoshopped? I actually had pomade on my hair When I was little, I was the pretty boy in town so I was the flower boy for my family You know the kids who throw flower petals, right? In that picture, I look very... stupid there Why? You look very very pretty I look so stupid, I look like I blanked out Why would you say that to a kid?
That's me Don't tell a kid he looks stupid So as I was watching that... I don't want to look smart when I act It may look stupid but you want to maintain how you look? I like how I look in there That picture keeps surprising us The hair is photoshopped But you said you look stupid in there so I thought you must not like it maybe I shouldn't have brought it But you are saying now you want to maintain that When you hear Korean, you got to listen until the end I'm just curious We need to wrap up soon Can I ask a few things I'm curious about? I think you do a lot of historical dramas Do you prefer historical dramas over modern dramas? I love modern drams, I really do but when you act in plays, you have to do a lot of classical works I thought it helped me to improve the most I felt it once I'm done with the work From talking with you today, I realized
whenever you talk about improving or your work you look different and talk different Let's suppose you weren't an actor Let's say you did something else, what do you think that would be? I think I would've been an athlete I did so much... I thought about it I thought about it after I got that question I never thought about doing anything other than acting actually Something that popped in my mind is sports It requires a lot of energy too and demands a lot of effort I need to feel the challenge I know that you play sports as a hobby This is almost the last question What does Byun Yohan love the most besides work? My doggie...? I love him the most He's my favorite I want to spend as much time with him as possible What's his name? - Bokja - Bokja I named him that since that's how he looks
- He must look very sweet and chubby - Very much so There's nothing I really do besides work I've had so many people tell me that you really love what you do and are so passionate about acting So I wondered if he's like me and once he's out of work... I become so relaxed when I'm not working The person who told you that gave you such a boring answer How so? How's Byun Yohan? He just works like crazy That's what he must've said How is he? He's passionate, he's crazy You met me for the first time today in Palette and we got to talk about a few things, how was today? Did you have as much fun as you expected, including promoting your movie? I told you that I felt very nervous on the way here, right? But as soon as I got here, I felt so relaxed I felt we had a real conversation for 70 to 80% of the time, wasn't working So I hope that IU's Palette goes on for a long time I think that I owe you a debt for today
Thank you very much (Palette Band X Yohan got close after two songs) Same goes for Donghwan We've never had a guest who talked this much with our band and even get curious about their names I heard him saying this during break He asked, "What is your name?" He said, "I'm Donghwan" Then, he went, "I guess I'll see you some other day in life" I think it will be a fun episode March 25th, your 3rd regular album, was it? (Correct answer: 5th regular album 'LILAC') It's my 5th regular album (Correct answer: 5th regular album 'LILAC') It's my 5th regular album (Sorry) I hope you continue loving music Please keep making good music Will you listen to it? Sure, of course - All 10 tracks? - I'll be rooting and rooting for you Also, stay healthy Thank you Do you have something to say as your final comment? Can I just end it here? No, you can't do that I can't do things like this <The Book of Fish> (Embarrassed) <The Book of Fish> will premiere on March 31 Our movie I'm sure you will hear about it as soon as it is released
So that will happen... I can't speak What did I mean by that... (Needs carsickness glasses right now) Please show lots of love for IU's Palette Please like and subscribe IU's Palette, like and subscribe (Cracking up) Whatever, the end IU's Palette, like and subscribe, please show lots of love <The Book of Fish> which is coming out on March 31, please show lots X3 of love Thank you (IU's Palette) IU's Palette, I had a great time John was here (Thinking) Please like and subscribe (IU's Palette) We are looking for a missing child If you have seen this child, please visit a police station near by or call 112 We sincerely ask that you show a lot of care for missing children
