Yoo Jae-seok, addicted to caffeine? 5 coffees a day
Yoo Jae-seok experienced the difficult work life, drinking 5 cups of coffee a day, and sympathized with the feelings of office workers waiting to retire.

In MBC's 'What Do You Do When You Play?' broadcast on the 24th, the members' depiction of the world of 'going to work after half-time' was revealed. Haha, who met his younger cousin as his boss, Lee Yi-kyung and Lee Mi-joo, who had a mental breakdown during the interview, and Yoo Jae-seok, who is a manager but goes through a difficult work life as the youngest, evoked a lot of empathy and laughter.

The broadcast on this day recorded a 2049 viewership rating of 2.1%, a key indicator of channel competitiveness and topicality, solidifying its position as the No. 1 Saturday entertainment program as well as in the same time slot. The viewership rating for households in the metropolitan area was 3.9%. The best moment was the scene of Yoo Jae-seok, the manager's youngest member, running away after finishing his work. The highest viewership rating soared to 5.0%. (Based on Nielsen Korea metropolitan area)

As soon as he joined the company, Haha was dragged into the conference room and was surprised to see his younger cousin facing him as his boss. It was Haha's younger cousin, Changju, who boasted on the air about getting a job at a famous second-hand trading platform company. Haha said proudly, “Are you the key person here? He used to snot a lot in the past.” Haha lived a passionate work life, coming up with ideas from the perspective of an actual meat restaurant owner at a meeting and boasting of fantastic chemistry with his cousin despite being suddenly assigned to work outside the company.

Lee Yi-kyung, who had been thrown into the interview room, was embarrassed to hear that she had applied to the human resources department. In the interview that started like that, Lee Yi-kyung was sweating with his distracted(?) answers, but then took an opportunity when asked a question related to his wit. Referring to the line she said to Park Min-young in the drama 'Marry My Husband', Lee Yi-kyung appealed to her quickness and sense by saying, "'That looks like child porridge' was an ad-lib." In the role-playing interview, he took on the role of an angry customer and was completely immersed in it, giving a truthful performance as if he were the reincarnation of Park Min-hwan, the trash husband. Until the end, Lee Yi-kyung drew attention by leaving the show and flattering her by saying, "I won't show you my back."

While Lee Mi-joo was also brought to the interview room, she promoted herself by saying, "I also won three awards at MBC: Rookie Award, Excellence Award, and Best Couple Award" in response to the applicant's brilliant award history. Next, when Lee Mi-joo was given a situation to persuade a junior who was about to quit the company, she showed off her skills to stop the opponent's pace with a three-step combo of empathetic flirting, life acting, and earnest eyes. Lee Mi-joo, who showed her sincerity, earned points and made everyone laugh by saying, "Dragons fly out of streams. This is a stream! I'm a dragon!" and a botched interview that ruined the company.

Yoo Jae-seok, who started his first job as the youngest manager, faced a wall of output and struggled. Yoo Jae-seok, confused by the 'yes or no' message that appeared just before printing, was at a crossroads to make a choice and showed restlessness, saying, "I'm not suited to work life. It's not easy," and "Should I just leave work? It's not helpful..." Yoo Jae-seok, who unexpectedly got out of the printing swamp with the help of the gunner, became closer to the executive director by packing boxes and attaching invoices.

Yoo Jae-seok stopped for coffee at the executive director's secret location, the veranda cafe. However, in the 2-minute cut of the executive director's coffee, Yoo Jae-seok forcibly ended the coffee time by saying, "If (the boss) has finished eating, we should go." Yoo Jae-seok, who attended the meeting without any time to catch his breath, ended the meeting with an unexpected silent remark and relieved his stress with a phone call with Haha. Yoo Jae-seok complained, "I'm not making a fuss about posting invoices. I'm the manager here and I'm the youngest. Why is time so slow?"

Yoo Jae-seok, who completed all the work of purchasing supplies, expressed his heart, saying, "I understand why office workers are sensitive to cuts. I want to go home." Yoo Jae-seok, who usually drinks only light Americano, made everyone laugh by having a total of 7 cups of tea, 2 glasses of water and 5 cups of coffee. Yoo Jae-seok, who had nothing to do, surfed the web and cleaned up his desk in no time, so he turned off his computer and waited for him to get off work. When the CEO said that it was time to get off work, Yoo Jae-seok got up and left work, ending his life as the youngest manager.
