[You Quiz on the Block! Episode 55 Roundup] Yoo Jae Suk reveals who he considers his best friends in life + why he decided to sue his former agency for unpaid wages

Nationwide ratings for episode 55 that aired on May 20, 2020: 2.4% (cr. Naver TV)

t/n: On this episode, Jo Se Ho was asked who his best friend is and he said, "My best friend is Nam Chang Hee and the best friend of my life is Yoo Jae Suk." Yoo Jae Suk commented, "I heard he talks behind my back a lot with Kwang Soo." Jo Se Ho said that when he's working out with Kwang Soo, they talk about Yoo Jae Suk and increase their speed and it becomes good workout. 

When Yoo Jae Suk was asked who his best friends are, he chose Jo Se Ho, Lee Kwang Soo, and Ji Suk Jin. When Jo Se Ho asked him about Park Myung Soo - Yoo Jae Suk jokingly said that he's not too sure about calling him a best friend and that they would have to remove the "best"-part. They work well together in comedy but their minds (feelings) don't really match. Yoo Jae Suk added that he thinks Park Myung Soo has the same thoughts.

1. [+923 / -17] Rather than being best friends, isn't it more like they developed hate and love affection for one another after going through thick and thin together while doing variety shows ㅋ

2. [+825 / -28] Yoo Jae Suk is honest - anyway, Jo Se Ho quickly stood next to Yoo Jae Suk as his best friend. Big jagi and little jagi really match well together ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+651 / -23] You went through a lot because of the House of Sharing. (t/n: The House of Sharing is a nursing home that's allegedly dedicated in caring for living survivors of Japanese wartime sexual slavery (also referred to as comfort women). Yoo Jae Suk was one of the famous celebrities who donated regularly to this foundation (like a lot of money every year) but employees of that foundation recently exposed the higher ups of not using the donations that's meant for the grandmas on the grandmas :( - here's a link to the post I recently uploaded)

4. [+96 / -4] It's clear when you see how Yoo Jae Suk treats them - when he's on a show with Kwang Soo, Se Ho, and Suk Jin, he really looks excited about the idea of joking around with them

5. [+82 / -6] The common characteristic of the three people Yoo Jae Suk likes is that they're nice and people who don't seem greedy 

t/n: Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Yong Man sued their former agency for unpaid payments for their appearance fees. He said that a lot of people around him told him not sue since it's most likely that the courts won't rule in his favor and at first, the courts didn't rule in their favor. However, almost a decade later - Seoul High Court ruled in Yoo Jae Suk and Kim Yong Man's favor. Lawyer Jang Bo Eun said, "It's a case where many people thought, 'Wow, even a person like Yoo Jae Suk isn't being paid like this?'". Jo Se Ho revealed the reason why Yoo Jae Suk decided to move forward with the lawsuit, "There was a reason why he decided to do it. He did it because he wanted to resolve it so that his juniors don't experience the same thing he did." Yoo Jae Suk added, "So I said, whether it works or not, let's try it but I didn't know that it would take this long. It almost took 10 years."
1. [+154 / -1] Yooneu-nim is really cool!!

2. [+139 / -0] Wow... the fact that it took 10 years. Yooneu 👍👍♥️

3. [+135 / -0] Yooneu went through a hard time ㅠㅠㅠㅠ it took 10 years so that a bad precedent doesn't remain for his juniors and honestly, he's really cool. There are people who are leaving comments saying "What future path for his juniors" and what not, take a look at this and learn something. It's not easy to spend time and money on others like that.

4. [+113 / -1] Yooneu's positive influence ㅠㅠ he did it for his juniors... he's really cool
