[You Quiz on the Block! Episode 54 Roundup] The show celebrates Teachers' Day in their latest episode by catching up with former comedian Jang Hyo In

Nationwide ratings for episode 54 that aired on May 13, 2020: 2.1% (cr. Naver TV)

t/n: Jang Hyo In used to be one of the lead comedians in the popular Gag Concert skit 'Doogeun doogeun', which aired in 2013. In the skit, her and comedian Lee Moon Jae are friends that have a some (썸) going on but they don't want to admit it to each other. In one skit, Lee Moon Jae is about to leave and he's looking at his phone and Jang Hyo In reminds him to not look at his phone while he's walking. He asks her like, "What's it to you?" and she's says, "Last time you felt and got really hurt! Do you know how worried I was?" and Lee Moon Jae would say, "Why were you worried..." then the intro for The Cranberries' 'Ode to My Family' would play. The song ends once Jang Hyo In or Lee Moon Jae would place focus back onto their friendship LOL 

For the past four years, she's been working as a teaching assistant at a preschool. She was asked why she stopped promoting as a comedian and Jang Hyo In revealed that her mother suddenly passed away. Her job as a comedian is to give people laughter and in return, she's felt the happiness but she had a hard time with the job responsibility of giving others happiness. She lived in seclusion for about more than a year. She said while living, she kept feeling the empty space of her mother. Although she lived with her mom, she used to call her eight times a day: "Mom, I'm going out", "I'm about to eat lunch", "I'm going to go into a meeting so I won't be able to touch on the phone", "I'm going to go catch the bus", "I'm in front of the house", "Mom, do you want me to buy something on my way home?", etc. Her mother was unwell so she wasn't able to go out often so Jang Hyo In would always describe to her what was going on outside and would always tell her about her interaction and stories with friends. So when her mother passed away, it felt empty because she had no one to do this with.

She also revealed the reason why she decided to make an appearance on the show, "The thing I'm really grateful for and the reason I came out on the show all excitingly is because I know that sunbae-nim(s) (Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho) took care of me with your minds. You often asked me about how I was doing..." Yoo Jae Suk  revealed that lately he noticed the skit trending on YouTube and he called Jang Hyo In asking how she was doing. While watching the skit, he noted how well-made it was and he felt bad because Gag Concert isn't doing well lately (it's on the verge of being cancelled). Jang Hyo In also added that when she was resting, she would volunteer for abandoned dogs and she called Yoo Jae Suk for help and he made a donation. She felt bad about sending a text but he called her within five seconds and said, "Hyo In-ah, what do you need me to donate?" Jang Hyo In also jokingly said that Yoo Jae Suk feels like an real brother to her and sometimes she even talks to him more than her actual brother.

When asked how she would like to be remembered as a teacher, Jang Hyo In said, "Rather than remembering me, I would like my students to remember having fun in preschool. I would like to be a part of the thought where they think, 'I don't remember the teacher but I think it was fun'."

1. [+1012 / -6] It's nice seeing her living life diligently. If you work hard at the work you're doing then better things will happen. I'm supporting you

2. [+775 / -10] Very pretty person Jang Hyo In

3. [+674 / -6] Both of them acted well in this skit and it was funny ㅠㅠ

4. [+53 / -0] Hyo In... I majored in early childhood education and even graduated from graduate school but I felt so embarrassed while watching your interview.. ㅜㅜ You're better than those people who majored in early childhood education and studied it for a long time. Although I'm no longer on the path of early childhood education and going on a different path... As a early childhood educator, I'm supporting you!!!

5. [+51 / -1] The person herself is cool

Original Source (Newsen via Nate): 'You Quiz on the Block' Yoo Jae Suk to Jo Se Ho who lost 10 kg, "If you're not careful, you'll end up like Jung Jun Ha"

1. [+1099 / -19] If you suddenly lose weight, you end up looking old fast. I think it's best to lose weight while working out for a long time and consistently

2. [+912 / -15] It's the vibe where the mom tells her first grader to smile ㅎㅎ he lost a lot of weight

3. [+762 / -32] Jo Se Ho's mentor Yoo Jae Suk~ big jagi, small jagi - they both seems like they have a good relationship with one another and they're funny ㅋㅋ (t/n: Yoo Jae Suk often calls Jo Se Ho "자기야" (jagiya) which can be translated into "honey" and the fans of the show are called 자기님 (jagi-nim) LOLOL so Yoo Jae Suk is known as 큰자기 (big jagi) and Jo Se Ho is often called 아기자기 (baby jagi but agijagi is also used to describe cute small things) and 작은자기(small jagi) LOL so cute~)

4. [+37 / -31] (t/n: the commenter list a bunch of celebrities that donated a lot of money but never released articles about their donations, they said that they respect the celebrities who make donations without releasing articles)

5. [+30 / -3] 'You Quiz on the Block' is my favorite TV show.

one of my favorite shows 💜
i love the stories the ordinary people share when they're being interviewed by Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho
and they share such different perspectives on how you should deal with hardship in your life ㅠ.ㅠ it's very inspiring 💜
also really enjoy Yoo Jae Suk and Jo Se Ho's bickering 💜💜💜
Yoo Jae Suk is so passive aggressive towards Jo Se Ho, especially when they're deciding on what to eat for lunch on that day of filming LOL
this is a nice show to watch especially when your mind and heart is feeling really heavy and cluttered 🥺
