In episode 152 of “You Quiz”, Lim Young Woong confessed, “I always think that I am receiving so much love compared to what I have now.” When MCs Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho asked what his current concerns were, he said, “I keep thinking and trying to become better than before, but I get a lot of stress when I hit the wall.”
He added, “I worry about ‘what if people don’t like it?’. It bothers me that I have to overcome the wall I bump into without getting frustrated, and I think I might be the villain myself.”
After episode 150 aired on April 20th with the appearance of President-elect Yoon Seok Yeol, the ratings of “You Quiz” fell sharply due to political controversy. The rating of episode 150 was recorded at 4.4%, and on the April 27th broadcast, the rating of episode 151 dropped to 3.5%. Controversy has intensified over CJ and its programs as it was revealed that “You Quiz” had rejected requests from President Moon Jae In, former Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae Myung, and Prime Minister Kim Boo Gyum to appear.
