Because of the constant moving and because of his shy and timid personality, Yoo Jae-suk often had trouble making friends at school. He spent many days at school eating lunch alone, until one day his mother encouraged him to try approaching his classmates first. Yoo Jae-suk started making jokes during lessons which he got in trouble for, but it made his classmates think he was funny and through his comedic skills, he was finally able to make friends. Because his father often worried about Yoo Jae-suk’s timid personality, when Yoo Jae-suk entered sixth grade, his father ordered Yoo Jae-suk to sleep in his own room. However, Yoo Jae-suk was too scared sleeping alone and instead would secretly carry his sleeping sisters to his room at night. The next morning, when his father asked what happened, he’d lie that he had no idea what happened. His sisters must have walked into his room while he was asleep. From a young age, Yoo Jae-suk used his smarts to figure out crafty solutions to his...
