No, you aren’t hallucinating, that’s definitely two Yoo Jae Suk’s you’re seeing!
Yoo Jae Suk has become the first Korean TV entertainer to have his own spot in the Grevin Museum, which features wax figures of famous people from around the world. Though the museum already features replicas of various Korean singers, actors, historical figures, and sports stars, this is the first time that a TV entertainer is being featured.
The comedian visited the Grevin Museum in Seoul to celebrate the release of his figure and said, “Even I was surprised when I saw the wax figure of me because it looks just like me. It was cool to see the wax figures of other famous celebrities like Psy and G-Dragon, especially because they look so alike. I hope that lots of people come to the Grevin Museum to see the wax figures, and have a fun and joyful time here.”
According to the museum, it took more than six months to create Yoo Jae Suk’s wax replica. The Grevin workshop team flew in from France last June to do the groundwork for the figure, and the final product was completed with glasses, sneakers and a suit worn and donated by the comedian himself.
Beatrice Cristofari, the general manager of the Grevin Museum, described Yoo Jae Suk as an icon of hope who brings happiness and joy to others and is loved by the majority of people in Korea as the nation’s representative entertainer and MC. She stated, “We hope that visitors to the museum will leave feeling happier and warmer after seeing Yoo Jae Suk’s wax figure, which aims to reflect the wit and warm consideration that the star possesses.”
