Although they’re not on Family Outing anymore, these two still boast a friendship that lives up to their title as the ‘Nation’s siblings’.

Lee Hyori and Yoo Jae Suk got the ‘Nation’s siblings’ nickname for their great teamwork on SBS’ Family Outing, which aired from 2008 to 2009, but their relationship actually dates back to when Lee Hyori was still a member of Fin.K.L.

They first met when Yoo Jae Suk was an unpopular comedian in a grasshopper hat, and from then on they continued on building up a friendship that allowed them to both win the Grand Prize as a duo at the SBS Entertainment Awards in 2009.

So what kind of partner does Lee Hyori think the ‘Nation’s MC’ is?

On the March 8 broadcast of KBS2’s Happy Together 3, Lee Hyori reminisced on the times they were both appearing on Family Outing, and said, “Whenever the producers tried to get us to do something unreasonable, the members sometimes complained, saying, ‘Do we have to do this?’ and ‘This is too much’. Whenever that happened, Yoo Jae Suk said ‘I’ll talk to them.’”

What was looking like another story proving that Yoo Jae Suk is an angel, however, actually ended with a twist. The ‘talk’ that Yoo Jae Suk meant to share with the producers were words of determination that they would “work hard.”

Lee Hyori teased, “Yoo Jae Suk never steps forth when he sees something unreasonable.”

“Whenever Yoo Jae Suk doesn’t want to do something or he feels embarrassed doing it, he makes me do it,” Lee Hyori continued to Yoo Jae Suk’s embarrassment.

On a more serious note, Lee Hyori also opened up on the pressure she felt while on variety.

Lee Hyori said she was paid the most, just below Yoo Jae Suk, out of the Family Outing team, and said, “My shoulders were heavy with the pressure that, since I’m paid so much, I had to do something. When I had to be funny but couldn’t do it, I got tired with variety.”
