Yoo Jae Suk isn’t known as Korea’s national MC for no simple reason. It was revealed that the nation’s most popular MC led the members of MBC‘s “Infinity Challenge” and SBS‘ “Running Man” to the public memorial of the Danwon High School students who were killed in the Sewol ferry accident. Although known for his humor, the visit to the memorial was of a somber mood.
Trying to avoid attention, Yoo Jae Suk visited the memorial in the early morning of April 25. Along with the MC, “Infinity Challenge” members Park Myung Soo, Jung Joon Ha, Jung Hyung Don, Noh Hong Chul, Haha, and “Running Man” members Kim Jong Kook and Lee Kwang Soo visited the memorial together, paying their respect to the students who lost their lives. Yoo Jae Suk’s leadership over his members during a time of national mourning was evident through the MC’s actions.
Yoo Jae Suk’s responsibility as a leader had always been present as past actions have reflected his leadership. For example, the MC had presented a group of university students with iPads after the students had volunteered to appear on “Running Man’s” ‘New School Semester Special.’ The special episode, which featured students building a boat and traveling across the Han River, produced gratitude from the MC for the students’ participation, resulting in the special gift.
Thank you MC Yoo Jae Suk for leading a great example as a leader in the Korean entertainment.
