'What do you do when you play?' Yoo Jae-seok and Haha showed pride in their acting in the second episode of the historical drama and became the scene stealers of 'Lovers'.

In MBC's 'What Do You Do When You Hang Out?' (directed by Kim Jin-yong, Jang Woo-sung, Jang Hyo-jong, and Wang Jong-seok/written by Choi Hye-jeong) broadcast on October 14, Yoo Jae-seok, Haha, Joo Woo-jae, Park Jin-joo, Lee Yi-kyung and Lee Mi tried out for supporting roles in MBC's Friday-Saturday drama 'Lovers'. The image of the Lord was drawn. The members, who played the role of farmers who had been taken prisoner, passionately picked their lines and got their parts, making viewers laugh.

The broadcast on this day recorded a 2049 viewership rating of 2.9%, a key indicator of channel competitiveness and topicality, ranking first among entertainment programs broadcast on Saturday. The viewership rating for households in the metropolitan area was 5.3%. The best moment was the scene where the members who finished filming their supporting roles in 'Lovers' exchanged thanks and cheered for 'Lovers' to become a huge success. At that moment, the highest viewer rating soared to 7%. It was truly a perfect collaboration between ‘What Do You Do When You Play?’ and ‘Lovers’. (Based on Nielsen Korea metropolitan area)

The members who arrived at the filming site of 'Lovers' dressed up as farmers and prepared for filming. Among them, Yoo Jae-seok and Haha expressed their pride in acting in historical dramas, citing their experience as supporting actors in the past drama 'Lee San'. Yoo Jae-seok asked, “Isn’t ‘Lovers’ the era of artificial intelligence?” and revealed that he had studied the historical background in advance. Haha said, “I came here with the intention of being liked. “I studied too much,” he said. In addition, Yoo Jae-seok, who was overly immersed in his role, bowed at a 90-degree angle to Namgoong Min, who came to support him, and said, “I’m a farmer without even realizing it…” “He said, making people laugh.

After filming began in earnest, Yoo Jae-seok and Haha put too much effort into their acting due to tension and faced a crisis, but eventually received an OK sign from director Kim Seong-yong. Yoo Jae-seok immersed himself in the role of a farmer replacing the cow's work and showed a realistic sighing performance, and Haha overcame the crisis by endlessly repeating "The rock is white" as if memorizing a spell. Joo Woo-jae, who watched this, praised him and said, “I thought you were a real farmer.” During the break, Yoo Jae-seok and Haha, who were from 'Isan', started teaching other members' acting and showed off their 'juice in acting in historical dramas.'

Next, filming for Joo Woo-jae, Lee Yi-kyung, Park Jin-joo, and Lee Mi-joo took place. Veteran Lee Yi-kyung's ad-libs successfully completed the full shot shooting, and Joo Woo-jae also received special praise for the bust shot, saying, "He's so naturally good at it." However, the scene where historical drama novice Lee Mi-joo appears was the scene where the show was put on hold. Lee Mi-joo, who received feedback from director Kim Seong-yong, completed filming safely. Park Jin-joo, who has not done much acting in historical dramas, looked nervous, but showed off the vibe of her real job as an actress by ad-libbing each line in a variety of tones.

Meanwhile, Namgoong Min and Eunjin Ahn, the main characters of 'Lovers', asked 'What do you do when you hang out?' I came to cheer on the team. The members asked Yoo Jae-seok and Haha in front of Namgoong Min, 'What do you do when you hang out?' I revered him as the god of my acting. Namgoong Min said to Yoo Jae-seok, “I heard you have a huge role, right? He said, “You have better lines than me,” and Yoo Jae-seok responded, “The director trusts me so much, I have so many lines, it’s driving me crazy.” and made everyone burst into laughter.

After finishing the meal, a group shot with Eunjin Ahn was held. The members continued to ad-lib even outside the invisible camera angle and continued their excellent performances. In particular, Haha performed passionately even when the focus was off and received special praise from director Kim Seong-yong. Ahn Eun-jin filmed Haha’s acting and said, “He is an acting genius. “It’s so funny,” he said, expressing his extraordinary fan sentiment. Yoo Jae-seok, who felt a sense of crisis, expressed his desire to act, and in the scene where he gained new talent, director Kim Seong-yong asked him to improvise an act that was not in the script. Meanwhile, Haha also performed well by winning one more cut, and Yoo Jae-seok said, “I really like your acting. “I act for this taste,” he said excitedly.

The members' efforts were included in episode 12 of 'Lovers', which aired on the same day. As Yoo Jae-seok and Haha emerged as scene stealers, viewers showed various reactions, such as, “God Yoo is good at acting,” “Yoo Jae-seok and Haha are also different from ‘Isan,’” and “Why do they fit the role of farmers so well?”

Meanwhile, “Something big is coming. The trailer for the next broadcast was released with the comment, “Please look forward to it.” Yoo Jae-seok, CEO of JS Entertainment, who was saddled with debt, went looking for a main vocalist, saying, “There will be a lot of changes for One Top,” and One Top’s new main vocalist, who has the scent of a big name (?), stimulated curiosity. MBC's 'What Do You Do When You Play?', which will depict JS Entertainment's activities, will be broadcast at 6:30 pm on Saturday, October 21.
