Entertainer Yoo Jae Seok expressed his honest position on the “crisis every 6 years” theory surrounding him.
On Jan 21st, on the YouTube channel “DdeunDdeun”, a video titled “The New Year holiday is only an excuse” was uploaded. In the video, Yoo Jae Seok, Jo Se Ho, Nam Chang Hee, and Lee Dong Wook continued to talk and asked each other about how they had been doing.
Lee Dong Wook asked, “Of course, you are essentially a comedian, and you feel happy in entertaining people. However, I think there are times when people around don’t see you like that anymore.” In addition, Lee Dong Wook said, “Don’t people say ‘Yoo Jae Seok is in crisis’ every six to seven years? How do you feel about that?” he asked honestly.
Yoo Jae Seok said, “So, compared to when my shows were still at their peak and everything I did was the best, of course I cannot always stay at the top. If you keep comparing me to when I was at the peak of my career, based on the numbers, it will always be a crisis. There are ups and downs in any life, and in fact, it’s impossible remain at the peak to the end of your life.“
Jo Se Ho, who has been working with Yoo Jae Seok for a long time, applauded Yoo Jae Seok’s mental management, saying, “He only focuses on what is needed. He said he needed to continue the program responsibly every week regardless of whether the ratings were good or not.“
Yoo Jae Seok said, “We just have to do our best in our job. You can’t do your best? Then you’re leaving,” he said, expressing his firm belief.
Meanwhile, Yoo Jae Seok was born in 1972 and will turn 51 years old this year.
