However, Yoo Jae Suk took the precautionary measure to self-quarantine himself following the instructions of disease control authorities.

On August 3, Yoo Jae Suk’s agency ‘Antenna’ revealed that he has undergone his final tests for Covid-19 and has tested negative. Thus, he will be starting with the shooting of MBC’s ‘You Quiz on the Block’ from August 5. 

The agency also ensured that it will continue prioritising the health and safety of all the staff members and will thoroughly comply with the quarantine guidelines of the health authorities while expressing their gratitude towards the medical staff working selflessly to control the pandemic.

Fans are happy to know that Yoo Jae Suk is in good health despite being in close contact with the infected staff member.
