Yu Jae Seok said, "I would like to apologize to everyone for the sudden break of the kind of news. Thanks to your warm words, I was able to recover quickly."

He continued, "When I first found out that I had contracted the coronavirus, I felt like my soul leaving my body. Thankfully, I had no symptoms. But it made me think that I should be more careful in the future." 

He went on, "I stayed in the smallest room in the house while I treated COVID-19. I lived like the character in 'Old Boy' during those times. I ate with gloves on my hands and stuff."

The entertainer said, "I woke up at 6:30 in the morning, then I talked to my friends and co-workers on the phone; lots of them were quarantined at home, so... I would spend so many hours on the phone that my voice would be gone by the afternoon." 

He resumed, "I also spent time watching videos online, and searching names of my celebrity friends. But there definitely was a limit to what I could do by myself in the tiny room. Most of all, I missed my children so much." 

He continued, "We video-called each other a lot. I must admit that I teared up a little while speaking to them via video calls. I felt bad, because they had to quarantine themselves because of me as well, and they wanted to go out and play. It was really nice to see them after our quarantine. I got quite emotional then."
