Broadcaster Yoo Jae-suk debuted in 1991 and is still receiving a lot of love.
However, the so-called “crisis theory” that national MC Yoo Jae-suk seems to be in crisis is spreading on various online communities.
Netizen A said that Yoo Jae-suk, who has maintained his immovable “Entertainment King” position, has limitations, and in particular, Yoo Jae-suk may end up with no crown at entertainment awards ceremonies this year.
A went on to say, “Currently, Yoo Jae-suk is appearing on 2 terrestrial programs: SBS’ ‘Running Man’ and MBC’s ‘Hangout with Yoo’.”
“Running Man” has an average rating of 4%, and “Hangout with Yoo” maintains the 4%~5% range. (Nielsen Korea’s national household standard)
“My Little Old Boy“, which will be a competitor of “Running Man” at the 2022 SBS Entertainment Awards, is in the 13%~15% range. This program also ranks first in terms of ratings among all Korean variety shows.
A predicted that Tak Jae-hoon, who not only revealed his father on “My Little Old Boy” but is also active on “Dolsing Fourmen”, is a strong candidate for the grand prize at the SBS Entertainment Awards.
A also mentioned Kim Jun-ho of “My Little Old Boy” and Kim Jong-kook of “Running Man” as candidates for the grand prize.
The leading candidate for the 2022 MBC Entertainment Awards in A’s opinion is Jun Hyun-moo, who is active through “I Live Alone” and “Point of Omniscient Interfere”.
Since Yoo Jae-suk is not currently in charge of a fixed program at KBS, A said it is likely that Yoo Jae-suk will not win Daesang at this year’s entertainment awards ceremonies.
Many people know the dignity of Yoo Jae-suk, who has been called “God Yoo” and has been loved for a long time, but recently, some say that his limitations are visible.
One netizen expressed their honest opinion about Yoo Jae-suk’s limitations, adding, “We have to admit it at this point.”
Fans are showing unwavering affection and support towards Yoo Jae-suk, who has always been at the top, saying that he needs time to get his breath back.
He also won Male Variety Show Star at the Brand of the Year Awards last year and this year.
Recently, while talking over the phone with him on the YouTube channel “Misun: Impossible”, Yoo Jae-suk’s close colleague Park Mi-sun joked, “It must be boring to receive awards. Stop taking them now.”
