Yoo Jaesuk never admitted that he is #1 ranked celebrity as like what he said even with the truth detector section, he didn't think he is the best although no one doesn't know him in SK. He is just like that, never get strucked by star syndrome and too proud, but he just knows that he is very popular.

The best MC SK ever had

I'm not from South Korea but he's been my ultimate bias since X-Man era!
So basically, the entire world loves Yoo Jae Sook, whoever you are as long as you love K-Variety Shows and know him well.
