Yoo Jae-suk on Sixth Sense


Yoo Jae-suk, the nation’s MC, is great at sharing his views and making difficult situations comfortable. However, in TvN’s new variety show Sixth Sense, Yoo Jae-suk is challenged by the trickiest conversation topics and unexpected situations, posed by 4 women whose boldness knows no end. 


Sixth Sense’s main cast includes 4 bold personalities

Produced by former Running Man PD Jung Chul-min, Sixth Sense is TvN’s new variety show centred on using one’s sixth sense to figure out what’s real and what’s fake. The main cast includes rapper Jessi, actress Jeon So-min, actress Oh Na-ra, Lovelyz’s Mi-joo, and Yoo Jae-suk as the show’s MC.

Each week, cast members are presented with 3 places or people – out of which they have to identify the fake. While the weekly mission seems easy, things are not as straightforward for Yoo Jae-suk, who gets caught between the 4 ladies’ TMI talk and Konglish moments.

The 1st episode, which aired on 3rd September 2020, gave viewers a teaser of the dynamics between the cast members. Right at the start of the episode, Jae-suk commented on how long and tiring the opening was.

TMI topics and Konglish moments

From bowel movements to breast implants, Jessi brought up various TMI topics that started risqué conversations between the ladies and left Jae-suk at a loss for words.

In a segment where they were talking about who had dated the most, So-min and Na-ra pointed at Jessi. This made her reveal that she has only dated 5 people. Yoo Jae-suk responded by saying it’s something a celebrity shouldn’t reveal so easily on TV.

The fun continued as cast members used Konglish to respond to Jessi whenever she made comments in English.

In particular, Jeon So-min’s Konglish brought laughter to viewers as she constantly tried to sound tough using phrases like “shut up”, but ended up sounding cute instead.

Yoo Jae-suk also participated in Konglish squabbles with Jessi and constantly mimicked her catchphrases.

An organic variety show with weekly guests


Yoo Jae-suk was not the only one drawn into awkward situations. Their first guest, actor Lee Sang-yeob, was also shocked by the ladies’ unique personalities – starting from Jessi’s inability to remember his name.

Even halfway through the episode, Jessi still could not remember his name and mispronounced it as “Sangyeobs” and “Samgyeop”, which made him jokingly ask the staff to give him a name tag.
