How Yoon Si-yoon was Cast in 'High Kick'

Actor Yoon Si-yoon revealed the behind-the-scenes story of his casting as the student "Junhyeok" in the hit sitcom "High Kick Through the Roof," which established his stardom.

In the "my life accidents" corner of KBS 2TV's "Happy Together" which aired late last month, Yun said the High Kick casting was the biggest event of his life.

He said the audition was a fight scene. While eating with friends, a gang of students come and pick on his best friend and he ends up fighting. Yun explained, "I never learned any sports but all the other actors were well built and trained." He was so discouraged that he made up his mind to act out a real fight. The others on Happy Together were curious as to what he meant.

When the audition began, Yun first began to swear and rip his shirt. He then threw things around, one of which directly hit the director's face. Yun said there was instant silence but that the director told him to return for a camera test. He was then cast soon after.

Yun added, "The director is such a famous person that I hope others don't follow my example and throw things at him in auditioning. I may have to buy him a helmet."

The three main cast members of the KBS 2TV Wednesday, Thursday drama series "Bread, Love and Dreams" -- Yoon, Eujin and Lee Yong-a -- were the guests of Happy Together as well as Eunhyuk and Leeteuk from the boy band Super Junior.
