Yoo Jae Suk lightened the mood by sharing a humorous anecdote that followed the controversy, saying, “One day, Song Ji Hyo sent a text message saying, ‘Today, I’m planning to do TikTok with Seok Jin oppa. Please watch it carefully.’ I asked her why she was announcing it when she could have just done it,” evoking laughter from the audience.
