Earlier, Yoo was auctioned off for charity as part of a special episode on the popular variety show “Infinite Challenge.” For the episode, titled “Infinite Challenge Dream,” the six members of the show were auctioned off to appear on other TV programs and get paid for it. All proceeds went toward charity. The drama production crew paid 20 million won to have Yoo in their drama.

In the drama’s episode that was aired on Sunday, Yoo successfully acted out his role of a secretary where he pretends to be a fake genius painter and a sommelier to help Heather Shin’s plot of taking revenge on her husband Manhoo, played by Son Chang-min.

“I did practice a lot a day prior to the shooting, but I learned a lot by observing veteran actors,” Yoo was quoted as saying after filming the drama, according to local news report. “I realized why some people are called professionals. I was fascinated to see the actors shooting the scenes without making any mistakes. Especially, I am very thankful to Jeon In-hwa and Son Chang-min for their great guidance.”
