Comedian Jang Dong Min tears up as he talks about the encouragement he received from Yoo Jae Suk a few years ago.
On the February 22 episode of the JTBC show “Inside Story Salon,” Jang Dong Min, one of the hosts, shares a story of how Yoo Jae Suk helped him through a difficult period in his life and enabled him to become the man he is today. He says, “About a year or two ago, I was in a slump and going through a difficult time. At that time, I all of a sudden asked for Yoo Jae Suk’s phone number and called him.”
Jang Dong Min continues to tell the story of how Yoo Jae Suk met with him even though he called him out of the blue. Yoo Jae Suk met up with Jang Dong Min, ordered a soda, and listened to all Jang Dong Min had to say. Jang Dong Min sheds tears as he tells how Yoo Jae Suk’s encouragement changed his approach to broadcasts and helped him be more successful.
Fellow host Yoon Jong Shin lightens the mood by asking, “Can you cry while talking about me, too?” Jang Dong Min cleverly answers, “Are you sick?”
