Yoo Jae-seok gave a witty answer to people’s reactions to the way he favors his daughter.
Comedian Yoo Jae-seok mentioned a story with his son Ji-ho while carrying out a ‘doll rescue mission’ on Kakao TV’s program “Play You”, which was broadcast live on March 29th.
Replying to the viewer’s comment, “Give a doll to your daughter Na-eun as a gift”, Yoo Jae-seok said, “I’ll take one and give it to Na-eun. Na-eun is really energetic these days. She sang and danced today, too”, showing affection for his daughter.
When asked, “How can you favor only Na-eun?”, Yoo Jae-seok said, “Even if I didn’t do so, my son Ji-ho would still complain, ‘Dad, I’m a little disappointed in you’. So I also told him, ‘I’m a little disappointed in you, too’. It’s okay since we’re both disappointed in each other”, making everyone laugh.
He added, “Ji-ho sometimes notices it. He sees it but pretends he doesn’t know anything. But he sees everything”.
Yoo Jae-seok also said on a broadcast tvN’s entertainment program “You Quiz on the Block”, which aired last month, “The ways I talk to Na-eun and to Ji-ho are very different. Na Kyung-eun (his wife) also asked me several times, ‘Why do you talk in a different tone?’”.
Meanwhile, Yoo Jae-seok married Na Kyung-eun, a former MBC announcer, in July 2008. The couple has one son and one daughter.
