Hellbound, Netflix’s adaptation of the popular webtoon with the same name, has been making headlines for being the next best K-drama series after Squid Game.

Fan-favourite and critically-acclaimed actor Yoo Ah-in stars as a cult leader in the highly-anticipated series set for a November 19 release.

While Yoo has been praised throughout his career for his acting talent, the 35-year-old is also a gifted fashionista, writer and art entrepreneur.

Here are a few ways he showed just how multitalented he is.

A fashion trendsetter

Many actors and idols are known for their fashion, but their eye-catching ensembles are often the work of talented stylists. Yoo, on the other hand, loves to experiment with fashion and come up with his own looks.

In fact, he would rather have full control over his wardrobe than hire stylists to dress him up, according to Preview magazine. “Fashion is an attitude. It is necessary to have your own sense and pleasure in fashion,” he said in the 2015 interview.

His eye for fashion even landed him a modelling gig with Diesel in 2018, making him the first Asian actor to be chosen as a global model for the Italian brand. According to Soompi, Diesel decided to collaborate with him because of his originality as an artist. As a model for the brand, he even went on to film a campaign video with international stars like Nicki Minaj, Bella Thorne and Gucci Mane.

“Yoo Ah-in has his own vision as an artist. We believe that our brand’s efforts to bring together philosophies of fashion and life will lead to better and freer designs through our work with Yoo Ah-in,” said Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel and the head of OTB Group, according to Soompi.

A gifted writer

Yoo showed his writing skills when he contributed articles and opinion pieces to several magazines such as Arena Homme, Bazaar, Elle and Dazed & Confused, according to Preview magazine. He was also the editor-in-chief of a fashion and art magazine called Tom Paper.

An art entrepreneur

As a high school student, Yoo focused on art, and his love for it has stayed with him throughout the years. Despite his busy schedule as an actor, Yoo revealed his passion and appreciation for the art world by opening an art gallery called Studio Concrete where he serves as the curator and creative director.

A versatile actor

Yoo has also broken barriers in the acting field. According to Soompi, he was the first Korean actor to be added to The New York Times’ The Best Actors of 2018 list alongside other Hollywood A-listers like Julia Roberts, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Ethan Hawke. He was included on the list for his portrayal of a young delivery man in the South Korean psychological thriller film, Burning.
