Yoo Ah-in a good fit with ‘The Class’
Actor Yoo Ah-in has been snapped up by men’s apparel company “The Class,” to be the brand’s model.
According the apparel firm the 26-year-old’s sensitive yet tough demeanor was what appealed to the brand. “Yoo Ah-in’s innocence and rebellious streak is what sets him apart from others,” said a spokesperson.
Yoo recently wrapped up shooting advertisements for the spring/summer collection and is currently working on the movie “KKang-chul-yi.”
Last year, he took part in the webtoon-turned-drama “Fashion King.”
He also Yoo donated 2,140 tons of rice to a nonprofit noodle shop in Hwasu-dong, Incheon.
The bags of rice were sent to Yoo from his fans to congratulate him on landing the role on “Fashion King.”
The restaurant is well known for its good works in feeding more than 200 customers a day free of charge. The customers are mostly homeless people or elderly citizens who are living on their own. Yoo’s gift was enough to feed the “regulars” for two months at least.
