“Yoo Jae-seok was an ordinary person among comedians”. Not long ago, PD Kim Young-hee, who appeared on tvN’You Quiz on the Block,’ to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Yoo Jae-seok’s debut, said.
PD Kim Young-hee of MBC’s’Let’s Read a Book’, which Jae-seok Yoo selected as the’program that changed my life’, gave an unexpected answer to the question, “Why did you cast me at the time?” He said, “Yoo Jae-seok, look at it now. I’m not an explosively funny person. Among the comedian groups, he is a very normal and ordinary person. But such a person can be a big hit and run long. Because once the bread breaks, the material is very often exhausted. It has to last a long time, but Yoo Jae-seok is very easygoing and honest. Jae-Seok Yoo had such a mind in the 8th and 9th years since his debut, but when I saw it (when I was thumping), it was very fun, so I decided to cast it.”
At that time, PD Kim Young-hee gave an order to Jae-seok Yoo, “Don’t try to laugh at you”. I had my own confidence, but I heard that.” He said, “I was embarrassed at the time.
Recently, as videos of KBS’Kung Kung Ta’ went around, there are many reactions that Yoo Jae-suk’s pleasant appearances in those days, which were not as serious as they are now, were cheerful and witty. In particular, admiring the extraordinary chemistry of Kang Ho-dong and Yoo Jae-seok, Yoo Jae-seok is the role of’Lee Su-geun’ to Kang Ho-dong. It was an opinion that it was unfortunate that I could not.
Could he have a thirst for this? ‘Yoo Jae-seok’, who won the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards in the TV category, revealed his heartfelt feelings toward comedians.
Yoo Jae-seok said, “I was a little surprised by the grand prize. I sincerely thank you for giving me such a big reward.” Last year’s TV category was the KBS drama’When Camellia Blooms’, and Yoo Jae-seok won the TV category for the second time since 2013. Because I can.
He said, “When I received a big award last year, I said,’I’ll see you in 7 years’, but I don’t know what to thank for receiving such a big award again in a year. I receive this award, but I cannot win it alone. MBC’What do you do when you play?’, SBS’Running Man’, KBS 2TV’Comeback Home’, and tvN’Six Sense’, etc.
“More than anything else, I would like to sincerely thank you for lending this place to many of our guests and fellow seniors and juniors who have been with us. I sincerely thank you to the many viewers who care about entertainment,” he turned to the viewers and colleagues.
At the same time, Yoo Jae-seok said, “You talk a lot about me as a TV host and MC, but I am a comedian who debuted in 1991. In the future, I will try to make my job, comedy, literally, laugh to many people. There is a lot of fun that can be seen through entertainment programs, but I will focus on laughter a little more.” Unlike PD Kim Young-hee, who discovered the qualities of a’national MC’ in him, who was a’ordinary person among comedians’, it cannot but be a part of preaching that the identity of a comedian still exists in his mind.
In addition, Yoo Jae-suk said, “Suzy said that during the awards ceremony, during the celebration stage, she talked about the importance of things that she took for granted, and suddenly I had such a thought. Among the things we take for granted, there are cultures and traditions that come down from our ancestors, and I think it’s the time when we need our attention and love now.”
Yoo Jae-seok won the Baeksang Arts Awards in the Men’s Entertainment category in the TV category in 2006 and 2020, and the Baeksang Arts Awards in 2013 and this year in the 2021 TV category.
