Wish him a speedy recovery.

Yoo Jae Suk is receiving praise from netizens after immediately following quarantine protocol even after he originally tested negative, just in case. His careful approach later minimized the spread of the virus when he eventually tested positive on his second test. Due to this, he was not able to attend his mentor Lee Kyung Kyu's daughter's wedding.

On a Korean community site, a poster posted "Hey Yoo Jae Suk isn't Yoo Jae Suk for nothing". In this post, the netizen wrote:

Yoo Jae Suk received a text saying he was in close contact with a person who tested positive, however due to the fact that he has been fully vaccinated he isn't subject to mandatory quarantine. Especially since his first test came out as negative.

However due to false negatives the test may have given him, he didn't go outside and quarantined himself using a self kit to test himself in his car.

After the test showed he may have had it, without leaving his car he drove straight to get a PCR test, it is because of this 'Running Man' members and staff had zero close contacts.

It might have been disastrous if Yoo trusted the original test results and went to the wedding and Running Man filming.

Top comments wrote, "But it's because this isn't the first time he got tested. He did have close contact and symptoms so that helped him make the right choice although most people in his shoes would've still not acted like him?

Another wrote: "He's incredible! Of course he would!" and "He's the best"
