A heartwarming story about entertainer Yoo Jae Seok is going viral.
Recently, a video titled “What’s the gift that the documentary director of Yoo Quiz received from Yoo God?” was posted on the YouTube channel “Dadok Dadok”? The video featured an interview with director Park Ji Hyun, who is working as a documentary director of tvN’s “Yoo Quiz on the Block.”
In this video, director Park shared a beautiful story about Yoo Jae Seok, who she has had the chance to work with since MBC’s “Infinity Challenge.” Director Park recalled, “He is the light himself. I met him at ‘Infinity Challenge’, and I was such a fan,” adding, “When I went to the filming scene, it was so busy that I wondered how he did this every week.”
At that time, a staff member was wearing a long padded jacket, while director Park was not wearing one. “I just jokingly said, ‘Everyone each has a padded jacked, but I don’t have one’,” she shared the awkward atmosphere in the car.
After arriving, director Park tried to get off quietly so as not to disturb the field staff when they tried to rehearse after moving to the venue. However, at that time, Yoo Jae Seok called her name, “Ji Hyun, where are you going?”.
Director Park said, “I was moved by the fact that he remembered my name.” She continued, “At the end of my three-month period, the last shooting was the ‘Totoga’ episode. The scene was a battlefield that day. We safely finished the filming and had a long interview with producer Kim Tae Ho after the site was demolished.”
“Just as I was about to leave after everything was over, Yoo Jae Seok stood alone in front of the elevator in the hallway with a padded jacket. I couldn’t believe it. He gave me the padded coat saying, ‘Ji Hyun, you have worked hard throughout three months.'”
Yoo Jae Seok remembered the padded coat story that director Park said as a joke earlier, and it was said that he stood for more than 30 minutes to wait for her.
Upon hearing this, netizens commented in awe, “As expected, he is the light himself” and “I am comforted by this story.”
Meanwhile, Park Ji Hyun has been working as a VJ for KBS’s “Documentary Three Days” for 12 years and is currently the documentary director for “Yoo Quiz on the Block.”
