“Hangout with Yoo” reclaimed the No.1 spot (Koreans’ favorite show) in 8 months thanks to WSG Wannabe


As a result of Gallup Korea asking 1,000 people over the age of 18 nationwide from June 14th to 16th, MBC’s Saturday evening entertainment show “Hangout with Yoo” returned to No.1 in 8 months with a preference of 4.9%.

“Hangout with Yoo“, which started in July 2019, is a program where star PD Kim Tae-ho and national MC Yoo Jae-suk reunited after the end of “Infinite Challenge” in March 2018. In the special segment “Bbong For Yoo”, Yoo Jae-suk debuted as trot singer “Yoo San-seul” and created a big sensation, leading to Hangout with Yoo’s first place among TV programs. Afterwards, with successive successes of project groups “SSAK3”, “Refund Sisters” and “MSG Wannabe”, the show topped the list in May~June last year. Although its PD left at the beginning of this year, it regained momentum thanks to “WSG Wannabe”.
