Was this a case of a hard worker recognizing his peer? ‘The nation’s MC’ Yoo Jae Suk attracted the public’s attention with his high praise for talented actress Ha Ji Won.
Actor Park Chul Min, Lee Jong Seok, Choi Yoon Young, Korean national table tennis players Hyun Jung Hwa and Yoo Nam Kyu, and the leads from the movie Korea appeared on the April 19 broadcast of KBS2’s Happy Together 3. During the broadcast, Ha Ji Won disguised herself as a staff member and made a late appearance on the show due to schedule conflict with her drama production.
That was when Park Myung Soo said, “Yoo Jae Suk had a lot of compliments for Ha Ji Won earlier when she wasn’t here. And Yoo Jae Suk normally doesn’t speak highly of actresses, except for Ha Ji Won.”
Yoo Jae Suk acknowledged, “Although I give compliments to [other actresses], it is true that I have given Ha Ji Won a lot [of compliments].”
Ha Ji Won, who appears as a Korean national table tennis player in Korea, said, “Although I have done boxing and aerobics in the past, I have experienced the most difficulty with table tennis. Some people expected me to learn how to play table tennis in a single day, however I panicked because my table tennis ability did not improve.”
Yoo Jae Suk and Ha Ji Won have known each other for a long time. Furthermore, both of them previously appeared together in SBS’ variety program, Running Man.
