After always keeping a tough and funny image, comedian Jang Dong Min surprised everyone by crying during broadcast.

On February 22, Jang Dong Min shared about his special connection with Yoo Jae Suk on jTBC′s Salon de Raison.

Jang Dong Min shared that in the past, he went through a very difficult time.

"I was going through a tough time and drinking by myself when someone came and asked for a picture. I didn′t want myself being captured in photos, so I refused the pictures and said I′ll give you an autograph. But the person said, ′Who does he think he is? Yoo Jae Suk?′"

"And then, for the first time, I contacted Yoo Jae Suk. Before then, we had never contacted each other," explained Jang Dong Min. "I wouldn′t be able to contact a senior I didn′t see freely now, but I was going through a really tough time then. [So I said] ′No one wants to listen to me, but because [you′re] the national MC, please hear me out. I′m really frustrated but I don′t have anyone to talk to. I will talk [to you] as the national MC."

"He heard my entire story without interrupting me even once. He then said, ′Because I′m not in your position, I can′t say that I understand you. How can I even dare to understand what you′re going through.′ It was so different from what other people have said. And then I told him, ′I′ll work hard.′"

"It was raining that day, and I didn′t have an umbrella, so he walked me to a big street with his umbrella. He caught a taxi and then opened up his wallet. He took out all the money in his wallet and gave it to me, telling me to take a cab. When I refused, he told me, ′Pay for the taxi and give the remaining to your mother as an allowance.′"

"I decided that after I work hard, the first person that I have to pay back would be him," continued Jang Dong Min, who said that he was able to get to where he was now because of how Yoo Jae Suk changed his life.

Jang Dong Min added that he′s never shared the story on broadcast and even says that he doesn′t like Yoo Jae Suk on broadcast because he didn′t want people to think he was taking advantage of Yoo Jae Suk′s popularity.

"I understand why people call him god-Yoo," said Jang Dong Min.

As he began talking more about Yoo Jae Suk, Jang Dong Min stopped in the middle of his sentence, as he began to tear up, still touched by Yoo Jae Suk′s simple actions.
