Yoo Jae Suk said he could have been the husband of a manager at MBC.
In the May 18th broadcast of tvN’s chat show “You Quiz on the Block”, MBC announcer Kim Soo Ji made a guest appearance. She recently drew attention to writing the lyrics for Red Velvet’s song “In My Dreams” from their latest album.
Yoo Jae Suk welcomed announcer Kim Soo Ji and asked her, “You’re an MBC announcer, is it alright that you come out here (tvN)?” Announcer Kim Soo Ji is currently in charge of MBC’s 5 o’clock news.
Announcer Kim Soo Ji said, “Our MBC is more open than you think. The growth of staff is greatly encouraged. So it may seem like it’s difficult to have us cast, but I think it’d be nice if you do a lot.” She added, “This is the first time an MBC announcer appears on a variety show of another broadcast channel.”
Yoo Jae Suk then asked, “What did your superiors say to you when you were invited to guest on You Quiz?” with Kim Soo Ji saying, “Our manager, announcer Kim Jung Geun…”
Before she finished her sentence, Yoo Jae Suk was surprised and expressed his regret while bringing up his wife Na Kyung Eun, “Is announcer Kim Jung Geun the manager? He worked with Na Kyung Eun. If Na Kyung Eun had stayed at MBC, she would have been the manager. I would have been the husband of the department head,” making everyone laugh.
Yoo Jae Suk and Na Kyung Eun met through MBC’s “Infinite Challenge”. They got married in 2008 and have two children.
