On the second Wanna One special episode of KBS 2TVs Happy Together 3, Hwang Min Hyun shared a touching story about Yoo Jae Suk from May 2012. Hwang Min Hyun first began talking about how it costs a lot of money to feed a boy band, and how an expensive lunch out with his NUEST members turned out to be an invaluable encounter.
At the beginning of our debut, our agencys CEO said we can eat something expensive, so we went to eat an expensive lunch and Yoo Jae Suk was there. We were rookies who just debuted at the time, so we went over to say hello and he paid for our meal, shared Hwang Min Hyun. This day was chronicled by NUESTs Baekho on their Me2Day page on May 4, 2012.
Yoo Jae Suks act of generosity has been told before, but only told through NUEST members. In response, Yoo Jae Suk said, Honestly, I didnt really know NUEST at the time. They were such rookies, and I felt for them. I recently learned that it was NUEST.
